Coast Guard Allows Freighter to Proceed

Monday, July 30, 2007
The marine casualty investigation into the death of Paul Wade and the sinking of the Buona Madre that occurred on July 13 off Point Reyes continues. The Coast Guard previously directed the master of the Eva Danielsen to keep the ship in port under the authority of the Ports and Waterways Safety Act.

For over a week, investigators from Coast Guard Sector Portland and Sector San Francisco conducted crew interviews and collected information, photography and logs from the vessel.

The Coast Guard requested the customs hold on the Eva Danielsen to be lifted and is now allowing the freighter to proceed on its voyage. The 291-ft. Bahamian flagged freighter, which was originally scheduled to depart Portland, Ore., on the evening of July 16. The marine casualty investigation is ongoing.
