Coast Guard releases names from boat fire

BOSTON — The Coast Guard is investigating the cause of the fire aboard the shrimp boat Kelly Rose after it caught fire Sep. 2, 2009, causing the two crewmembers aboard to abandon ship in a life raft.

Rescued is Peter Kendell, the captain of the Kelly Rose, and Charles Corradi, a crewmember aboard the 36-foot boat.

The crew of the fishing vessel Karen Lynn I rescued the pair from their life raft after their boat caught fire about 25 miles east of Boston Sep. 2, 2009. The fishing vessel Padre Pio also assisted in the rescue by providing information to the Coast Guard after hearing the boat’s Mayday call and the Coast Guard’s urgent marine broadcast.

The Karen Lynn I crew brought Kendell and Corradi to Gloucester, Mass., Wednesday night.

The boat sank in about 100 feet of water after the Massachusetts Port Authority Fire Department and the motor vessel Gateway Endeavor extinguished the fire.
