National Fisherman

JUNEAU, ALASKA — A Coast Guard cutter towed a disabled fishing vessel to Dutch Harbor, days after most crew members were evacuated.
The Coast Guard says in a release that the 166-foot Alaska Mist had a mechanical failure and was adrift 30 miles north of Amak Island on Saturday.
The Mist's sister ship, the Seattle-based Pavlof, slowed the ship's drift on Sunday until a tug arrived to tow it. But the tug suffered a towing equipment failure.
The cutter Waesche arrived on scene. The guard coordinated the transfer of remaining non-essential personnel of the 22-member crew, who were evacuated late Monday and Tuesday.
