not much more https://www.alaskapublic.org/2019/1...ard-and-navy-vessels-collide-near-kodiak


KODIAK — Six Coast Guard servicemembers and three U.S. Navy sailors were hospitalized in Kodiak on Wednesday evening after a Coast Guard and Navy vessel collision, the Coast Guard said.

The collision occurred around 7:30 p.m in Women’s Bay, according to Coast Guard Public Affairs Lt. Comm. Scott McCann.

McCann, who is based in Juneau, confirmed that the two vessels were Coast Guard and Navy “small boats.” The Coast Guard small boat was a 38 ft. special purpose training boat. All six servicemembers aboard the the Coast Guard vessel were transported to the Providence Kodiak Island Medical Center with apparently fairly minor injuries.

“The injuries were to the extent that our Coast Guard members were released from the hospital last night,” McCann said.

The injured Navy personnel are in stable condition, according to Naval Special Warfare Command Lt. Matthew Stroup. According to Kodiak Fire Department Chief Jim Mullican, one injured servicemember was medevaced to Anchorage at 11:30 p.m. on Wednesday night. Given that all six Coast Guard members were released Wednesday night, the medevaced individual was likely a sailor.

McCann confirmed the collision damaged both boats, but details around the cause of the collision remain unclear.

“We will be doing an investigation into who was at fault and why it happened and what type of damage was sustained to both boats,” he said, adding that such investigations can take weeks to months to complete.

Both the Coast Guard and Navy vessels involved are now moored at the Kodiak Coast Guard base, but it’s also unclear how they made it back to port.

According to McCann, the Coast Guard small boat was coming back from performing hoisting exercises with a Coast Guard helicopter, a part of routine search and rescue training.

The Navy boat was a Naval Special Warfare (NSW) combatant craft, according to an emailed statement from Stroup.

“An investigation is underway into the cause of the collision during routine training operations,” he wrote.

38ft ain’t a cutter. Small boats probably going fast in the dark.

It seems to me, if there is a screwup...the navy is there. Just a few in my lifetime, fire on the Forestall, Viet Nam era, another carrier about that time, broke down for a year because some queer threw a paint scraper in the reduction gears. The USS Pueblo handed over to the NOKO's, not a shot fired. The USS Cole bombing. The gunboat sailors captured by Iranian gunboats and humiliated on national tv. Naval recon plane surrendered to Chinese forces in the China Sea. Two collisions with tankers in the Gulf. That's just a few that I can recall. WTF?


guilty of white privilege : for 55 years I had the privilege to get up and go to work...to help feed the folks that wanted to sleep in.

Don't need no Triangle.

Apparently it’s exponentially more hazardous when the navy is in the area.

There is a SEAL training base out at Spruce Cape. Constant training in cold weather survival, long frigid "free swims", and a lot of RHIB tactical training. They could have run to Womens Bay from their base, from town, or launched right there at the MWR ramp on Womens Bay. I have to wonder if they were doing an unannounced high speed night intercept which went wrong. But, just a guess.

It will be blamed on a civilian.

Actually the SEALs do hire civilians to drive boats for them.


Mark Begich, Joaquin Jackson, and Heller resistance... Three huge reasons to worry about the NRA.
