Coast Guard repsonds to vessel aground

BOSTON — The Coast Guard is monitoring the salvage of a fishing vessel that ran aground with two people on board at Pulpit Rock in Maine at 9:47 p.m., Friday.

Coast Guard Station Rockland launched a 25-foot response boat. Once on scene the response boat crew transported one person from the fishing vessel Jackie Renee to Rockland, Maine.

The master of the vessel stayed on board to wait for a commercial salvage company to arrive.

There is 200 gallons of fuel on board and there is no sign of pollution at this time.

“The crew is safe,” said Chris Berry, the operational unit controller at Coast Guard Sector Northern New England in Portland, Maine. “Now we will monitor the situation until salvage of the vessel is complete.”

    I would prefer this to be a private message. I just wanted to know who is responsible for cleaning up the oil and diesel from the Jackie Renee? I was up there when they remove the vessel and there was a definite slick.
