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.

The rainbow struggled there for a time, then raced nearly a hundred yards downstream with Collins in pursuit.
