Cargo Ship Guided to Safety

Tuesday, December 12, 2006
The motor vessel Sea Honesty, a 534-foot Panamanian flagged cargo ship, was guided to Dutch Harbor after reporting engine trouble on its way to Shinizu, Japan, 284 miles west of Dutch Harbor. The Coast Guard North Pacific Search and Rescue Coordination Center (RCC) received a request for assistance from the Sea Honesty.

In response to the request, the RCC directed Coast Guard Cutter Alex Haley to accompany the vessel to Dutch Harbor for repairs. Coast Guard Sector Anchorage then coordinated with the ship's agent Mitsui O.S.K. Lines LTD, Alaska Marine Pilots, and the city of Dutch Harbor to ensure adequate response resources were available. The Sea Honesty was safely moored in Dutch Harbor. The early notification and request for assistance from the Sea Honesty's captain and the coordination of assisting agencies were instrumental in avoiding possible problems.
