The ill-fated Fishing Vessel Lady Cecelia has been found by the Coast Guard in nearly 400 feet of water off Willapa Bay Washinton. The vessel went down recently with all four crewmen aboard. All perished.
The search was made possible by one of NOAA’s Newport based oceanographic research vessels that passed over the Lady Cecelia’s last known position and got a positive report on its sonar screens.
The Coast Guard took it from there with a special deep-diving robotic search craft controlled from the surface. The story is in the Oregonian. Click here.
