Coast Guard Reports


NEW YORK-The Coast Guard is monitoring a collision between a orange juice tank ship and a dredging vessel that occurred in Newark Bay, Newark, N.J., at 1:51 p.m. today.

The Orange Sun, a 669-foot Liberian flagged vessel and the dredging vessel New York were involved in a collision resulting in the New York taking on water and leaking a small amount of hydraulic fluid.

No injuries were reported.

Diving operations continue to stabilize the dredge New York.

Coast Guard Station New York immediately launched two small boat rescue crews who arrived on scene minutes after initial report.

A Coast Guard rescue helicopter from Air Station Atlantic City was also on scene to assist. The Coast Guard Cutter Sturgeon Bay, a 140-foot cutter home ported in Bayonne, N.J., is also currently on scene. The Coast Guard investigation team is on scene to conduct an assessment and investigation.

The Orange Sun was escorted to a nearby anchorage by tug boats and Coast Guard awaits the damage survey.

The Vessel Traffic Service at Coast Guard Sector New York has closed Newark Bay until operations stabilize the dredge New York become stable and vessels can safely pass.

"The Coast Guard will continue monitoring the salvage operations on the dredge New York throughout the night," said Lt. Cmdr. Kenneth Moser, chief of incident management at Coast Guard Sector New York. "The Newark Bay waterway will remain closed until the situation onboard the dredge is stabilized."

The collision is under investigation.

I had a dream, I was sailing, I was happy, I was even smiling. Then I looked down and saw that I was on a multi-hull and woke up suddenly in a cold sweat.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
