When Crab Was King: The Rise and Fall of the Kodiak King Crab Fishery

A Year-long radio project of the Kodiak Maritime Museum


The Sinking of the City of Seattle (Episode 11 Runs July 13 to 19)

07-08-2008

Retired Coast Guard Captain Tom Trosvig was in charge of the Marine Safety Detachment in Kodiak in the late 70s. It was his job to investigate crabber accidents.

He says there are primarily 3 reasons fishing boats sink.

Trosvig tells the story of the new City of Seattle that sank on its maiden voyage because someone had misaligned the valves in the engine room.
