The Polaris, an 84-foot steel vessel built in 2007, suffered damage to its bow and outrigger. There were seven people aboard at the time of collision with no report of injuries. The vessel was able to return to its homeport safely.
The Tofteviken suffered an approximate 30-foot gash along its portside hull. There were no injuries reported to the crew aboard.
The tankship will remain anchored until the Coast Guard determines it’s safe to continue into port after investigating and reviewing class reports.
USCG marine inspectors are investigating the cause of the collision and assessing the damage to the Tofteviken’s hull, and to ensure appropriate repairs are completed.
