Bad day at Kodiak

To keep from sinking, the U.S. Army Reserve landing craft Monterrey beached itself on Puffin Island after hitting a rock and taking on water late Friday in Chiniak Bay near Kodiak. A fishing vessel, the Peggy Jo, took two Monterrey crewmen with minor injuries to Kodiak for medical care. The Coast Guard said an estimated 15,291 gallons of fuel spilled from two breached compartments. The 174-foot landing craft was hauling heavy equipment construction equipment and supplies from Port Hueneme, Calif., to Bethel. USCG photo
