Bizarre Fishing Mishap

The Unofficial Coast Guard Blog links to this strange sea-story that culminates in the Coast Guard preventing an almost comical mishap from becoming an international incident, and ending very badly for some American fishermen.

It would strain belief if not for the pictures.

Ouch! That is Bad!

The 140 foot Coast Guard Icebreaker Morro Bay has collided with the Block Island ferry in dense fog.
No injuries are reported, and there is no word who, if anyone, was at fault.

(The news is calling the cutter a buoy tender, but, while they do sometimes do buoy work,  the 140's are icebreaking tugs.)


UPDATE! Elsewhere the USCG was saving people as usual.
