Coast Guard Terminates Voyage for Fishing Vessel

Tuesday, December 23, 2003
The Coast Guard Cutter Cuttyhunk terminated the voyage of the 32-ft. fishing vessel Duffy Sunday. The master, Todd Cannon of Everett, was retrieving and setting crab pots in Possession Sound, south of Whidbey Island. A Coast Guard boarding team from the Cuttyhunk conducted a safety inspection and found significant violations. Specifically, the Duffy had expired flares, only one fire extinguisher, and no official identification markings on the boat's hull. The Cuttyhunk escorted the fishing vessel to Everett Marina to fix the violations. After the violations are corrected, the master is encouraged to contact the Coast Guard's fishing vessel safety coordinator to arrange a dockside inspection.
