Alaska Tug Regains Control of Barge Loaded With Fuel

A Crowley Marine barge loaded with 140,000 gallons of aviation fuel remained adrift in moderate seas and high winds throughout the night on Tuesday. The tug SINUK stood by the barge during the incident and was able to get the barge back under tow late Wednesday afternoon. The incident happened on Alaska's Northwest coast just north of the village of Wales. Winds were reportedly in the range of 50 miles per hour with 15-foot seas. There were no reports that fuel was spilled in the incident.
