Cutter Liberty Terminates Juneau Fishermen for Safety Violation
Wednesday, August 25, 1999
The voyage of F/V Lady Jane was terminated for a safety violation by USCGC Liberty.
The vessel's captain, Auke Bay resident Jacob Hallingstad, and his two crewmen, Trevor Kearney and Lynn Marks, were escorted from Stephen's Passage into Harris Harbor after a boarding team from Liberty discovered the vessel had only one immersion suit aboard. Safety laws require one immersion suit to be aboard for each person sailing on the vessel.
