>A beloved boat that has had better days…

All the snow has created challenges for the vessels in the Small Boat Harbor and is keeping the Response Personnel very busy. The ARCTIC MIST, reported partly submerged at the slip on Wednesday morning, is still submerged today. There are plans in motion to get her refloated today.

“All boat owners are reminded to do everything they can to keep snow loads in check,” urges Chief Taylor of the Response Department at Marine Safety Unit Valdez. The ARCTIC MIST did have a snow load removal plan in place, unfortunately the worst still happened.
