Listing Ship Is Righted

October 27, 2002|From Associated Press

SEATTLE — Coast Guard crews and dockworkers slowly righted a container ship carrying pulp, newsprint and lumber that was listing toward a pier in Elliott Bay early Saturday.

Workers were unloading the Westwood Rainier about 3:30 a.m. when they noticed it was listing, Coast Guard spokesman Rod Rooen said. The 600-foot vessel brushed against two cranes on the pier, partially tearing two electrical reels.

No injuries were reported, Rooen said. Water was pumped out of ballast tanks to stabilized the ships, a Port of Seattle spokesman said.
