Fishing Boat, 2nd Vessel Collide Off NJ



The Coast Guard is assisting a commercial fishing boat disabled after a collision with another vessel about 50 miles southeast of Cape May.

A Coast Guard spokesman says no one among the eight-member crew of the 71-foot fishing boat Dictator, homeported in Southwest Harbor, Maine, was injured when the boat collided with the 965-foot merchant vessel Florida.

The Dictator’s rudder was damaged in the collision shortly before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, leaving it unable to proceed under its own power.

The Coast Guard says the Cutter Finback, dispatched from Cape May, was planning to tow the Dictator and its crew to the nearest port.

The Florida was proceeding to Savannah, Ga.

The accident is under investigation.
