On August 15, 2016, about 0150 local time, the 119-gross-ton fishing vessel Lady Gertrude began flooding through its propulsion shaft stern tube while preparing to dredge for scallops. The captain contacted the Coast Guard, the three crewmembers abandoned ship, and they were rescued by a good Samaritan vessel before search-and-rescue assets arrived. The vessel sank at 0453. No one was injured. A light oil sheen was observed. The Lady Gertrude was valued at $400,000.
