USCG Terminates Voyages

Friday, January 14, 2000
The USCG terminated the voyage of F/V Miss Betty T due to numerous major safety violations southeast of Beaufort Inlet, N.C. A boarding team from USCGC Point Warde boarded the 66-ft. shrimp trawler, discovering the wooden hulled vessel was taking on approximately 450 gallons of water per hour. Other safety deficiencies included inadequate fire fighting equipment, exposed wires throughout the vessel, fuel leaks, missing hatch cover and improper maintenance of lifesaving equipment. The USCG also terminated the voyage of F/V Frisco, due to major safety violations approximately three miles east of Parramore Island, Va. A Coast Guard Station Parramore Beach boarding team operating from an Independent Maritime Response Vessel (IMARV) conducted a safety inspection of the 55-ft. wooden-hulled vessel discovering numerous safety deficiencies, including several holes in the hull approximately two ft. above the waterline, leaking in the stern shaft packing and rudder post, missing high-water alarm and an EPIRB with an expired battery.
