Coast Guard Responds to Drifting Container Ship UPDATE

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — The container ship Maersk Kawasaki transited late Friday night under its own power to Port Hueneme where an investigation of the original power loss is in progress. Two Crowley tugs, the Admiral and the Leader, dispatched to the scene from San Pedro, attended the Maersk Kawasaki during its transit to Port Hueneme.

Coast Guard Cutter Blacktip, home-ported in Oxnard, escorted the Maersk Kawasaki to its current anchorage outside the port where the investigation is being conducted by the Coast Guard and Lloyd’s Register.
