Safety Violations Terminates Voyage

Thursday, January 09, 2003
Coast Guard law enforcement officials terminated a fishing vessel’s voyage Tuesday afternoon in Southeast Alaska waters after the boat’s captain failed to meet federally required safety equipment regulations. Boarding officers from the Petersburg-based cutter Anacapa boarded the 37-foot vessel Charisma at about 10 a.m. near Takatz Bay in Chatham Strait. The Coast Guard officials cited Charisma’s operator for safety equipment violations that included unserviceable survival suits, an expired life raft, an expired electronic position indicating radio beacon and having no sound-producing device. The Anacapa crew terminated the vessel’s voyage and escorted the Charisma to Petersburg where the boat’s master resolved the safety discrepancies Tuesday evening.
