Seabulk Pride Leaves Bay

Friday, February 17, 2006
The Seabulk Pride, a tanker that was anchored in Kachemak Bay last week after it ran aground, departed Kachemak Bay about 9:30 p.m. Feb. 9. The 600-foot double-hull tanker had been in Homer about a week as it was inspected and repaired after ice pushed the ship away from its dock in Nikiski and it was grounded. The Seabulk Pride pulled into Port Angeles, Wash., on Feb. 14. Because the tanker had lost one anchor, it was escorted by a tug as it came into port. The tanker is to be inspected at Port Angeles before it can be moved to Anacortes, Wash., to offload its cargo. The Coast Guard has required tests of the ship’s cargo piping before its 3.9 million gallons of petroleum products can be pumped off. The tanker will also be required to have protective booming around it as the cargo is offloaded. After the Seabulk Pride has offloaded cargo and cleaned its tanks, it will go to a shipyard for repair, probably in Canada. Repairs will be checked by the Coast Guard. (Source: Homer News Online)
