Shrimping boat goes aground in Hanapepe

By Associated Press

LIHUE >> A salvage plan is being prepared for a shrimping vessel that went aground in Hanapepe.

Hawaii state boating officials said the 55-foot boat was anchored in the bay, waiting to refuel on Monday.

The Garden Island reported that crew members had come ashore and no one was aboard when the anchor line either broke or slipped.

Authorities responded on Sunday afternoon to a report of a boat on the reef. The Coast Guard was also notified.

Officials said no action was initially taken because the vessel was not hard aground. They added that the vessel remained on the rocks, however, because of a lack of action from the vessel's captain and crew.

Officials said the center pontoon hull had been compromised. The boat's owner is working on salvaging the vessel.
