Photographer:Dean Porter [View profile]Title:ATLANTIC PURSUITAdded:Dec 08, 2006
Photo Category: Fishing vessel loa 70ft/21m and over
The fishing trawler ATLANTIC PURSUIT shown in this photo tied up in St. John's in Oct 2000. Built in 1976, she ran into trouble three days ago over 200 nautical miles off Newfoundland after the vessel was hit by a rogue wave breaking windows in the wheelhouse and knocking out communications. She was being towed by another fishing vessel the ARCTIC ENDURANCE but the tie line broke, she was abandoned Dec 7, 2006 as a Precautionary measure due to inpending bad weather. I heard a tug is on the way to her to tow her to Grand Band, Newfoundland. All 33 crew are safe.

A further update, the Atlantic Pursuit is now in port at Bay Bulls, the crew are all safe. She will undergo inspections. I saw her on a news report and her whellhouse is dented on top, and the crew all said they were under water after the wave hit.

Your welcome Michel. The tug is the Point Vim owned by Davis Shipping, a news report I heard today is the Vim should reach the trawler late this afternoon.
