Default U.S. Army Monterrey Vessel Grounds Near Kodiak to Avoid Sinking

U.S. Army Vessel Grounds Near
Kodiak to Avoid Sinking


KODIAK, Alaska—
A U.S. ArmyReserve vessel that struck an object
and began taking on water late Friday night
grounded on a small island near Kodiak to avoid
sinking, according to the U.S. Coast Guard .

According to Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class
Grant DeVuyst and radio station KMXT, the crew of
the landing craft Monterrey, assigned to the 481st
Transportation Company in Vallejo, Calif., placed a
mayday call after the vessel hit Humpback Rock in
Chiniak Bay at 10:16 p.m.
Maj. Annmarie Daneker, an Army Reserve media
relations officer, said the Monterrey’s crew of 16 to
18 people subsequently grounded on Puffin Island
at the request of the Coast Guard.
An Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter
launched at 10:44 p.m. to assist the Monterrey,
and the good Samaritan fishing vessels Resolution
and Peggy Joe also responded to the scene. Two
Monterrey crew members with minor injuries were
transported to Kodiak aboard the Peggy Joe.
The Coast Guard says the Monterrey may be
carrying up to 40,000 gallons of diesel fuel. Two
tanks aboard the 174-foot landing craft were
reportedly damaged and leaking 15,291 gallons of
fuel, and the Coast Guard has contracted with
Alaska Chadux Corp. to contain and clean up the
leak.

DeVuyst said Alaska Chadux’s initial steps include
setting up three containment booms around the
Monterrey, in the area of the spill and around the
mouth of the Buskin River. The firm has also
contracted a skimming vessel to clean up oil
between the Monterrey’s initial impact point and
the site of its grounding.
A report from the Alaska Department of
Environmental Conservation suggested that the
damaged tank had completely emptied. Four
response vessels were on scene as of noon
Saturday, with an estimated 3,000 total feet of
containment boom deployed so far.
In a Saturday statement from the Coast Guard,
Daneker thanked those who responded to the
grounding.

“The U.S. Army Reserve is grateful for the prompt
response of the Coast Guard and the many good
Samaritans who ensured the safety and health of
our Soldiers,” Daneker said. “The safety of the crew
and the protection of the local environment is our
top priority and we will cooperate fully with the
Coast Guard during the cleanup and salvage
efforts.”
The Monterrey was transporting heavy
construction equipment from Port Hueneme, Calif.
to Bethel in support of a U.S. Marine Corps
mission.

That didn't take much guessing, did it?

Anyway, I wasn't aware the US Army still had some of these large ships. I thought they had all been transfered to the Navy. And by the looks of it maybe they should have, lol.

The US Army actually has more boats total than the Navy, keep in mind a boat is not a ship.
