    WRECKED CATAMARAN SPOTTED NEAR LINCOLN CITY
    updated information


    NORTH BEND, Ore. - Searchers have located a ship's logbook aboard the wreckage of the catamaran that was spotted wrecked upon the shores near Lincoln City, Ore., today.

    The logbook indicates the last entry was made December 11 at approximately 3:00 a.m. 10 miles from Cape Blanco. A length of rope was also found to be tied around the propeller of the vessel though there is no clear indication as to its purpose.

    The vessel's Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon was found to be locked inside a box aboard the boat and unable to float free of the vessel in the event of an emergency.

    Coast Guard Station Depoe Bay received a call at approximately 10:00 a.m. that a catamaran had been spotted upside-down and demasted near Lincoln City. The owner of the vessel, a resident of Renton, Wash., was located and reported he had hired a crew to bring the boat from South Africa to Seattle for participation in a boat show. The vessel was last seen leaving San Francisco December 8.

    Three HH-65 helicopter crews were dispatched from Coast Guard Air Station North Bend to perform shoreline searches and fly search patterns over the ocean in the area of the wreck. Two additional helicopter crews from Air Station Astoria and Air Station Humboldt Bay joined the search along with a C-130 search plane crew from Air Station Sacramento, Calif.

    The Coast Guard is asking that anyone who may have seen this vessel in transit from San Francisco please contact Coast Guard District 13 Command Center at 1-800-982-8813.

    did the two anchors cause this to capsize? A dangerous time to be going through this area without the perfect equipment. We dont see many Cats around here I dont think- I could be wrong but that just doesnt seem like the trawling type boat you need.

    FISHING VESSEL SINKS AT ROGUE RIVER MOUTH
    NORTH BEND, Ore. - The Coast Guard is searching for members of the crew of a 43-foot fishing vessel that sunk at the entrance of the Rogue River in Oregon today.

    Coast Guard Air Station North Bend received a report that the fishing vessel "Ash" from Port Orford, Ore., had overturned and was going under near the entrance to the Rogue River at approximately 3:40 p.m. Three men were known to be aboard the vessel when at the time.

    A 47-foot rescue boat crew from Station Chetco River, an HH-65 helicopter crew from Air Station North Bend and a second HH-65 crew from Air Station Humboldt Bay were dispatched to the scene where a liferaft was spotted. However, no members of the crew were seen to be aboard the raft.

    The 47' motor lifeboat is designed as a first response rescue resource in high seas, surf & heavy weather environments. They are built to withstand the most severe conditions at sea and are capable of effecting a rescue at sea even under the most difficult circumstances. They are self-bailing, self-righting, almost unsinkable, and have a long cruising radius for their size.

    The HH-65C Dolphin is a medevac-capable short-range recovery helicopter which can complete an unaided approach to the water and bring the aircraft into a stable 50' hover, or automatically fly search patterns which allows the crew to engage in other tasks.
