Emergency crews aid sinking boat in Honolulu Harbor

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 02:16 a.m. HST, Apr 25, 2013

The Coast Guard, Honolulu firefighters and transportation officials were summoned to Honolulu Harbor Wednesday morning to aid a sinking boat.

Capt. Terry Seelig, Honolulu Fire Department spokesman, said no one was aboard the Holo Kai Nui when the incident was reported just after 11:35 a.m. at Pier 17. He estimated that the vessel was 50 to 60 feet.

Firefighters deployed pumps to remove water and stabilize the vessel. A boom was also laid around the boat to contain any oily material.

The vessel is not a hazard to any boats in the area or harbor operations, Seelig said.
