Tanker to Arrive in Port Angeles

Wednesday, February 15, 2006
A 601-foot tanker that was refloated last week after it ran aground in Alaska is due in with escort to Port Angeles Harbor. The Seabulk Pride left Alaska's Kachemak Bay Feb. 8 after the Puget Sound captain of the port cleared it to sail down the coast first to Port Angeles, then to the Tesoro refinery dock in Anacortes to offload its cargo of heavy crude and gasoline. Then the seven-year-old, double-hulled tanker will sail to a dry dock in Victoria for repairs to two small cracks in its outer hull. The Seabulk Pride's first port of call in Washington state will be Port Angeles, where a joint Coast Guard and state Department of Ecology inspection team, along with an American Bureau of Shipping surveyor, will meet the ship. The Seabulk Pride was being loaded at a Tesoro Refinery dock on the Kenai Peninsula on Feb. 2 when an ice floe knocked it from its moorings. It drifted onto a nearby beach, where it was grounded upright. An investigation, completed with the help of divers, found a water ballast tank in its outer hull with two 5-inch to 7-inch cracks.
