About 0215 Pacific standard time on December5, 2014, the commercial fishing vessel Titan was proceeding outbound on the Columbia River when it grounded at the southern end of Jetty A off Cape Disappointment, Ilwaco, Washington. The vessel sustained hull damage and began to flood. Efforts to dewater the Titan were unsuccessful, and the five crew members abandoned the vessel after a US Coast Guard motor lifeboat arrived on scene. The Titan remained partially afloat by the stern and sank the next day. None of the Titan’s five crewmembers were injured. The Titan and its catch, an estimated 40,000pounds of Dungeness crab, were declared a total loss. The vessel had an estimated 3,500gallons of diesel oil, 700gallons of hydraulic oil, and 400gallons of lube oil on board. Oil sheens were sighted after the vessel sank. The vessel was not salvaged or recovered.
