The Coast Guard is monitoring a liftboat that is listing to one side today about 70 miles south of Gibson, La. A liftboat is a self-elevating, self-propelled boat used for various tasks such as crane operations, pipe laying and construction. The Coast Guard was notified that the liftboat Juan, owned and operated by Montco Offshore Inc. in Galliano, La., was listing to its starboard (right) side during jack-up procedures. All six crewmember were safely evacuated from the boat.

Initially, the boat was listing at 10 degrees, and the boat is currently listing 45 degrees. No pollution has been reported, and personnel from Coast Guard Marine Safety Office Morgan City, La., are continuing to monitor the situation and will investigate the cause of the incident.
