Fishing vessel off reef in CNMI

1:23 pm on 20 September 2013

A fishing vessel stuck on a reef on Tinian in the Northern Marianas has been removed.

The Il Sin Ho was hauled off the reef on Wednesday night by contractors and towed to a pier on Tinian for the removal of any remaining oily water.

The vessel was one of three that broke their moorings last weekend during bad weather and got stranded on the Kammer Beach reef.

The two other vessels had earlier been safely removed from the reef.
