Crew to abandon listing ship in North Pacific
Rescue copters sent to stricken vessel off Alaska; 22 crew members aboard


The Cougar Ace, 230 miles from Adak Island, Alaska. She’s carrying 4,813 new cars headed to Canada from Japan. The cause of the list is unknown.


  1. Good news for the US car industry! I wonder if the reason is a seal team tried to scuttle the boat and only half the charges went off.

  2. Wow, I wonder what the salvage rights are going to be on that? Just the steel alone seems like it would be worth salvaging.

  3. What caused the list?’ I sense a future episode of ‘Deep Sea Detectives.’
