2 rescued before 67-foot vessel sinks near Dungeness Spit

The Associated Press

SEQUIM — The Coast Guard says a 67-foot recreational vessel with 700 gallons of diesel on board sank Friday north of Dungeness Spit after a man and woman were rescued.

There is no report of a spill. The Coast Guard says the Washington Ecology Department is working with the owners to see if the vessel can be salvaged from 180 feet of water. Dungeness Spit is in the Strait of Juan de Fuca near Sequim.

The people on board the Lady A called for help about 7:40 a.m. when the vessel began taking on water. They were picked up by a 45-foot rescue boat from Port Angeles and did not require medical attention.
