Alaska Fishing Boats KODIAK ENTERPRISE and ALASKA SPIRIT Collide in Dutch Harbor

The ALASKA SPIRIT and KODIAK ENTERPRISE have collided in Dutch Harbor, Alaska. The ALASKA SPIRIT had just finished offloading their catch to a tramper and was departing when it collided with the KODIAK ENTERPRISE, which was headed out to the fishing grounds. Early reports indicate that confused communications between the two vessels was a cause of the collision. Both vessels suffered structural damage in the accident and will need repairs. The ALASKA SPIRIT suffered damage to the bow, and the KODIAK ENTERPRISE suffered damage to its starboard transom and gantry. The 221-foot ALASKA SPIRIT is owned by Fishing Company of Alaska, and the 262-foot KODIAK ENTERPRISE is owned by Trident Seafoods. The accident is under investigation by the Coast Guard. No injuries were reported from the accident.
