Tug Sinks Off Hawaii

23 Jan 2015

The U.S. Coast Guard reports today the 95-foot tug Nalani unexpectedly sank yesterday afternoon in waters approximately 2,200 feet deep (670 meters) two and half miles west of Barbers Point Harbor, Oahu.  The eleven mariners on board were all rescued by the towing vessel Tiger 7 and a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) patrol boat.

No injuries were reported and the cause of the sinking is unknown and under investigation.  An eyewitness says the vessel listed hard over before sinking by the stern.

The vessel was carrying an estimated 75,000 gallons of diesel fuel and an oil sheen was observed by Coast Guard responders following the incident.

Nalani was built in 1981 and was sold by Kirby Corporation approximately one year ago, according to Kirby spokesperson Matt Woodruff.
