Fishing Vessel Sinks Sister Vessel

Tuesday, June 25, 2002
Just before 2:20 a.m. this morning, the 75.4 ft. (23 m) Peterhead registered fishing vessel Devotion collided with her sister vessel 'Fruitful Bough' 150 miles east of Aberdeen in the U.K. Aberdeen Coastguard was alerted and sent a rescue helicopter from Norway to reach the damaged 'Devotion' with pumping equipment, however the four crewmen on board were quickly transferred to 'Fruitful Bough' just before 'Devotion' sank. None of the crewmen on board either vessel were injured. The fishermen on board 'Fruitful Bough' are recovering equipment that has floated free from the sunken vessel and will return to Peterhead.
