BOSTON — A Coast Guard pollution response team is overseeing the recovery of the 65-foot workboat King Triton Thursday after it sank at its mooring Tuesday morning in Boston Harbor.

No people were aboard at the time of the sinking and no pollution has been observed.

King Triton was reported to have 250 gallons of diesel onboard in closed tanks. There have been no indications of leaks from these tanks.

A commercial salvage company was contracted by the owners of the King Triton to place containment boom around the area and to recover the boat.

The cause of the sinking is under investigation.
