KODIAK, Alaska - Members of a Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew transfer one of four crewmen from the Northern Belle to emergency medical personnel in Cordova April 20, 2010, after the crew abandoned their Seattle-based 75-foot fishing vessel when it began taking on water and sank around 5:30 p.m.U.S. Coast Guard photo courtesy Air Station Kodiak.

          Coming up this week, a fisherman is dead after his fishing boat sinks in the gulf; a new processor will be buying salmon above Bethel this summer, and the legislature authorizes a permit buy-back bill. All that, and Westward Seafoods owes the EPA a lot of money. We had help this week from Coast Alaska's Ed Schoenfeld in Juneau, KHNS' Tara Bicknell in Haines, KCAW's Ed Ronco in Sitka, KUCB's Anne Hillman in Unalaska, and KYUK's Shane Iverson in Bethel.

             Butler said that the job center hopes to put on similar courses in the future.

UPDATE - The deceased man has been identified as the boat's skipper, Rob Royer.

 

            One fisherman is dead and three are safe after their fishing boat sank in the Gulf of Alaska yesterday (Tuesday) evening. The 75-foot Northern Belle went down about 50 miles south of Montague Island, or 235 miles northeast of Kodiak. The Seattle-based Northern Belle was bound for a cannery in Dillingham with supplies for the upcoming fishing seasons. 

            The deceased man has not been identified, pending notification of the next-of-kin. He had reportedly suffered head injuries while abandoning ship, and was dead when Coast Guard rescuers arrived about two hours later. A doctor at Cordova Community Medical Center said it was unclear if the man died from the injuries or from hypothermia. The three crewmembers that survived, two men and one woman, suffered from hypothermia, but were reported in stable condition late last night. All were wearing survival suits.

            A mayday call was received by Communications Station Kodiak about 5:30 yesterday evening.

            The unidentified man told the ComSta radio operator that there were four on board and they were abandoning ship.

            An HC-130 Hercules and an MH-60 Jayhawk were launched from Air Station Kodiak, according to Coast Guard spokesman David Mosley. The cutter Long Island, which was about 40 miles northwest of the spot where the Northern Belle went down, was also diverted to the scene. The Hercules found the crew in the water almost two hours later, clinging to debris, and dropped a life raft to them. The helicopter arrived around 8 p.m. and had all four crew members hoisted aboard within 40 minutes. They delivered them to Cordova just past nine.

            The cause of the sudden sinking is unknown and will be investigated. Weather conditions were reasonably calm for the Gulf of Alaska, with winds of 10 miles per hour and seas of three- to five-feet.
