Deckboss just got off the line with Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Meredith Manning, who provided this update on the Exito sinking:
The search for the two missing Exito crewmen continues.
The Coast Guard, in its initial news release, mistakenly referred to the Exito as a "fishing vessel."
The boat was hauling cargo including 55-gallon drums and an X-ray machine from Dutch Harbor to Akutan. It was working for Trident Seafoods, which has a huge processing plant at Akutan.
