No major injuries reported after a fishing vessel ran aground near Kodiak.
The 56-foot ‘Neptune’ hit some rocks off Raspberry Island about two o’clock on Thursday morning.
The vessel suffered an eight-by-three inch hole in the hull. The bow is out of the water, but the vessel apparently started flooding.
A Coast Guard H-60 helicopter crew dropped some pumps to dewater the vessel. Three Good Samaritan vessels stood by to help as needed.
Four people were reported on board.
The Coast Guard says they’ll have a better idea of damage and any further action later on Thursday.
