Cause sought for fishing-boat grounding off Whidbey Island

Coast Guard officials are investigating what caused a 97-foot fishing boat to run aground off Whidbey Island early today.

No one was hurt and there were no initial reports of anything leaking from the boat Neahkahnie, according to Coast Guard Petty Officer George Degener in Seattle.

Degener said the grounding was reported shortly after 3 a.m. near Bush Point on Whidbey Island’s west side.

Late this morning, the boat was still in place and Degener said it’s hoped that the vessel will be freed as the tide rises later today.  He said the three-man crew aboard the boat was in no immediate peril.

The Coast Guard’s 87-foot patrol boat Swordfish, based at Port Angeles, is at the scene.  A dive crew also is on hand to inspect the boat’s hull for damage.
