Loose Boat in Bellingham Bay Towed to Shore

The Bellingham Herald reports that:

Bellingham, WA – A boat that broke loose in Bellingham Bay Monday, Dec. 29, was towed into Squalicum Harbor by a private contrac-tor Monday evening.

The boat’s fuel tanks were empty, and no fuel leaked into the bay during the incident, said state Department of Ecology spokeswoman Katie Skipper.

The 50-foot boat had been anchored in the bay but high winds caused it to drag its anchor across the bottom, Bellingham Coast Guard Station Chief Jamie Desanno said. The owner was out buying a larger anchor at the time, Skipper said.
