The discovery was made last Wednesday when UC Santa Barbara researchers were trying to retrieve a computerized sediment-collecting instrument belonging to the university's Marine Science Institute.

Coast Guard investigators suspect that a 41-foot fishing trawler that disappeared off Santa Cruz Island with seven men aboard may have capsized because 3,000 pounds of ballast had recently been removed, officials said Monday. The loss of ballast "would have made the boat less stable than it was," increasing potential for a rollover, said Lt. Cmdr. Pete Rennard, who is heading the investigation for the Coast Guard's Marine Safety Office in Long Beach.
