K-Sea Transportation Partners L.P. reported record results of operations for its fiscal 2006 first quarter ended September 30, 2005. The Company also announced that its distribution to unitholders in respect of the first quarter will increase by $0.01 to $0.57 per unit, or $2.28 per unit annualized.
