Two Vessels Ordered to Stay in Port at Dutch Harbor

February 28, 2002

The Coast Guard Captain of the Port Western Alaska issued Captain of the Port Orders detaining two freight ships in Dutch Harbor. The motor vessel Cool Girl, a Panamanian-flagged freighter, and the motor vessel Nova Friesia, a Netherlands-flagged vessel, must remain in port until discrepancies are corrected. During a routine freight ship boarding, inspectors at the Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment in Unalaska Monday discovered that the eight deck officers and engineering officers aboard the Cool Girl had expired Panamanian licenses. The order requires that the Cool Girl stay in port until the officers are able to produce valid licenses. The Cool Girl had taken on a load of frozen fish product as cargo at Dutch Harbor and was readying to depart for Akutan when the Captain of the Port order was issued restricting them to port. During a routine freight ship boarding Tuesday, inspectors at the Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment in Unalaska discovered that aboard the Nova Friesia four deck and engineering officers could not produce valid licenses from the Netherlands. The order requires the Nova Friesia to stay in port until the officers are able to produce valid licenses. The Nova Friesia arrived at Dutch Harbor to on load cargo and had expected to be in port for two to three weeks.
