Golden Seas update

I just spoke with Coast Guard Petty Officer David Mosley, who tells me the seas have laid down enough to allow the cargo ship to make slow forward progress.

That’s a relief, but the Golden Seas is not out of the woods yet.

The turbocharger on the ship's engine remains inoperable, so the vessel is underpowered, Mosley says.

Lots of help continues steaming toward the Golden Seas, which will be escorted to Dutch Harbor.
