Coast Guard Temporarily Relieves Captain

Friday, December 16, 2005
Reports indicate that the captain oof the new Coast Guard icebreaker was temporarily relieved of command after an accident that dented the $90 million ship. As the Mackinaw floated into the Grand Haven Channel on Monday, the 240-foot ship slowly turned and rammed the breakwall on Lake Michigan. The accident left an 8-by-3-foot dent in the ship's starboard bow. Part of the breakwall may also require repairs, the Coast Guard said Thursday. An investigation is under way, but Capt. Donald Triner said a junior crew member had made a steering mistake, the Coast Guard said. The Coast Guard took possession of the ship in mid-November. It was making a tour of Great Lakes cities when the mishap occurred. source: AP
