A fishing vessel at the Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes sank Tuesday morning and released more than 200-gallons of diesel fuel into the water. Divers from Global Diving and Salvage were contracted to clean up the spill. They have removed approximately 300-gallons of diesel fuel from the Miss Maddy’s starboard fuel tank. Approximately 210-gallons of fuel have been recovered from the water. An oil boom has been positioned around the vessel to contain the oil. Approximately 510-gallons of fuel has been removed from the scene. The vessel is stable and continues to discharge oil. The Miss Maddy is a 58-ft. wooden hulled vessel belonging to Harold Joseph of Marysville, Wash. Personnel from the Coast Guard Marine Safety Office Puget Sound and Global Diving and Salvage will return to Anacortes Thursday to assess the situation.
