04/10/15 Capt. Gavin Runs Aground

Posted: April 11, 2015 in Uncategorized

The Capt. Gavin ran aground on Wednesday in Point Pleasant Beach, NJ. The 77 foot fishing boat has been on the beach for several days waiting for a salvage tug from NYC to arrive. The tug had to cancel the rescue on two separate days due to rough seas. It will attempt again on Saturday. These photos were taken late Thursday afternoon. They were pumping out the fuel and ballast water as I left. The captain remains on board waiting for the salvage tug. There are also 600 pounds of scallops on the boat.
