PORT TOWNSEND -- Workers have pulled out a 30-foot boat that sank next to a dock at the marina at the Port of Port Townsend.
State Ecology Department spokeswoman Linda Kent said a quick response by the port staff also contained a diesel spill.
The vessel had about 180 gallons of the fuel on board. Up to 50 gallons was collected in a spill boom and absorbent materials. Kent commended the port for its fast action.
She said the boat that sank was a fiberglass dive vessel used for collecting sea cucumbers.
