Barge Hits Moored USCG Vessels

Monday, April 05, 2004
A tug pushing two barges drifted into two U.S. Coast Guard ships at the north side of the Corpus Christi Inner Harbor at 4 p.m. Wednesday. One of the barges struck both the Coast Guard Cutter Mallet, a 75-foot inland construction tender, and the Coast Guard Cutter Brant, an 87-foot patrol boat, both located at the Coast Guard harbor facility here. No one was injured and neither of the ships or barges are taking on water. Though the two damaged ships will need to be repaired, no Coast Guard mission will be affected. Personnel from Coast Guard Marine Safety Office Corpus Christi are investigating the cause of the accident.
