Coast Guard Monitors Grounded Barge

Tuesday, November 14, 2006
According to reports, the Coast Guard is monitoring a 110-ft. barge that went aground near Kodiak, Alaska The barge was anchored when it broke free of its anchor line sometime during the night. Heavy winds and surf forced the barge onto a rocky cobble beach 1,000 yards east of the airport. The Marine Safety Detachment contacted Swenson Maritime Transportation who was in charge of the barge. They informed the Coast Guard that they were preparing to re-float the barge on the next high tide. The Swenson Maritime Transportation vessel Arch I and the Amak Towing vessel Kodiak King attempted to pull the barge free. Attempts will be made to re-float the Ava Lynn during high tide later this week. The Coast Guard is working with the Swenson Maritime Transportation, the Department of Natural Resources and the land owner Koniag Inc. The circumstances surrounding the grounding are under investigation by Marine Safety Detachment Kodiak.
