Owners of the 800-foot-long tanker American Trader, which has spewed hundreds of thousands of gallons of crude oil into the ocean off Huntington Beach, said Thursday that the ship's bottom probably was punctured by its own anchor as the ship maneuvered into an offshore mooring to unload its cargo. The same tanker has been involved in four other mishaps, two in the last year.

A federal judge Thursday dismissed charges of negligence against former oil tanker captain David Hilger in the 1986 deaths of three fisherman whose boat was rammed outside the Golden Gate. The action by U.S. District Judge John Vukasin does not prevent the government from rewriting the three-count case and seeking a new indictment. Assistant U.S. Atty. William McGivern said he would seek a new indictment as quickly as possible.
