            Last week the Coast Guard Cutter Acushnet terminated the voyage of the Kodiak trawler Topaz during a boarding 14-miles southeast of Cape Chiniak. The Ketchikan-based Acushnet was on routine patrol and conducted boardings of four other boats near Kodiak Island. The Topaz was conducting a test trawl to ensure all its gear was in working order, but according to Lieutenant Kirk Fistick, operations officer on the Acushnet, the trawler did not have any survival suits onboard at all. Coast Guard rules require an immersion suit for each crewmember whenever the boat is underway.

             The boarding crew stayed aboard for eight hours and escorted the Topaz back to Kodiak where the survival suits were stored. The Topaz was allowed to get back underway the next day.

            The incident highlights how seriously the Coast Guard takes fishing boat safety. Members of the Guard in Kodiak and Unalaska have been conducting dockside inspections for the last month for both the Bering Sea Opilio season and the Kodiak Tanner fishery. On Thursday, Petty Officer First Class Darryl Harvey conducted an exam of the fishing vessel Major at the docks in Kodiak.
