WARRENTON, Ore. -- The U.S. Coast Guard plans more hearings later this spring into the sinking of the fishing vessel Lady Cecelia. It disappeared March 10 off the coast of southern Washington, and four people died.
The Daily Astorian reported that the Coast Guard held four days of hearings this week at Camp Rilea in Warrenton, hearing from members of the family, the ship's owner, maintenance workers, inspectors and others. It plans to resume in May or June.
Testimony dealt with the size of the catch aboard the vessel and its seaworthiness.
The Lady Cecelia sank as it was returning with a haul that family members and nearby skippers estimated could be 70,000 pounds of fish.
