As the search for the crew of a missing fishing vessel continued for a second day, the Coast Guard began preliminary work to determine why the Arctic Rose sank so suddenly, without even enough time for the crew to radio for help. Fifteen crew members were aboard the 92-foot vessel when it went down in the Bering Sea, about 775 miles southwest of Anchorage. The only sign of trouble was a signal from the vessel's emergency beacon at 3:30 a.m. Monday.

A Mexican national was convicted of second-degree murder Wednesday in the death of a veteran Coast Guardsman thrown overboard when a panga boat rammed the U.S. vessel. Chief Petty Officer Terrell Horne III's 2012 death made him the first Coast Guardsman murdered in the line of duty since 1927, officials said. Horne, who spent 14 years with the Coast Guard, was posthumously promoted to the rank of senior chief petty officer. Horne's widow, Rachel, was pregnant with Horne's third son at the time of his death.

The Spanish brig-of-war El Cazador, laden with 19 tons of newly minted silver, struggled against the storm--until the battle was lost, and the ship and its treasure sank in the Gulf of Mexico. There it rested for 210 years, until last year, when it was found by accident--and by Mistake. Last August, the fishing vessel Mistake dropped a trawl along the muddy bottom in 300 feet of water, 50 miles south of Grand Isle. It came up torn and full of rocks.

The blue of the hull is scuffed off along the angles . Spots of fiberglass are coming off in brown lesions. The Herzik brothers are hunkered down in the hold, sanding the corners of two new gas tanks they built of plywood and fiberglass. Terry is the captain, 64 years old, solid, broad-shouldered, a bit craggy from the years of sun and sea. Doug is 61, leaner, smoother, with blond-gray hair and hooded, slightly wary eyes.
