Lady of Grace’s EPIRB Located

BOSTON – Massachusetts State Police divers believe they located the fishing vessel Lady of Grace’s Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB) Monday, which was found lodged in a scupper opening where the deck meets the starboard bulwark. The EPIRB device is designed to float free from a sinking vessel to the water’s surface, and begin sending an emergency signal through its antennae. No such emergency signal was received by the Coast Guard. The diver was unable to remove the EPIRB from the vessel.

The Lady of Grace was identified by divers on Sunday in Nantucket Sound’s Main Channel, lying on its port side. Coast Guard Sector Southeastern New England Investigators are conducting a marine casualty investigation into the cause of this tragic accident.Coast Guard, ,
