Yacht Sinks in Barge Incident

Wednesday, December 06, 2006
A sport fishing yacht sank in the Wicomico River about five miles west of Salisbury, Md., after a diesel barge knocked a piling into it early this morning. The Coast Guard received a report from the master of the Tug Merrimac that his diesel barge had hit the piling about half a mile from the Quantico Wharf and struck the port bow of the 46-foot sport fisher Snoopy II. No one was hurt, and the diesel barge did not rupture. About two gallons of the Snoopy II's fuel have leaked out, and absorbent boom has been placed around the area. All but the flying bridge of the boat is underwater. The Coast Guard is investigating the incident with the Maryland Department of the Environment and the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office.
