The compartment was locked and the duty EM did not have a key. The fire spread into the cork insulation on the hull. This created a smoky mess. The Seattle Fire Department had to use phosphorus rings to cut through the deck, to attack the fire. I do not believe there were any major injuries, but the fire did quite a bit of damage."

Polar Sea

28 Jan 1982

Grounded(Actually collision--see below)

Moderate


"The Polar Sea entry for 28 Jan 1982 was incorrect. The USNS Yukon collided with the Polar Sea while the latter was escorting the Yukon north out of McMurdo Sound. The Polar Sea was stopped by ice when the Yukon collided with her, causing moderate damage."

The third mate of the Yukon corrected the last statement: "Concerning your list of USCG cutter accidents - I was third mate aboard the tanker USNS Yukon when it collided with the stuck Polar Sea in January of 1982. It is rather misleading to imply the Yukon collided with the Polar Sea. The Polar Sea switched off its turbines and decided to operate solely on diesels to save fuel, as they stated the ice was getting thinner. They relayed this to our vessel. Then the ice started to thicken and the Polar Sea requested we maintain a closer cpa as the ice was closing in. Shortly after we closed up, per their request, they went up on the ice and got stuck because it had thickened up again. We went immediately full astern on the Yukon, but due to the narrow channel we were unable to miss the Polar Sea. We shifted the helm at the last minute to minimize the damage to both vessels. This accident was caused by the Polar Sea trying to save fuel, not a simple tanker hitting them. I think that should be made clear in your archives. I was on watch at the time of the incident."

1983 -- Eastwind:
"During her last Antarctic trip (1983), the Eastwind collided with the edge of an iceberg. Hot water was used to melt the edge jammed into the ship's hull. She was temporarily patched and made Sydney. There she was more permanently repaired to make the trip back to Mobile, Al, which she accomplished in 1984. There was no loss of life."


1984 -- Westwind
: "On 1 January 1984 the Westwind sustained major hull damage in the Weddel Sea on a Deep Freeze cruise." LT Clarence Bonner provided more details: "The Westwind was caught in a pressure ridge, which ripped a 6ft high, 140ft gash down her side, above the waterline. The crew patched it with rubber sheeting until they could get out of the ice, then with plywood, and limped into South America for steel repairs. I was an RM2 at her homeport of Mobile at the time and recall the message traffic well, and had friends on her."

1984 -- Polar Sea:
"The USCGC Polar Sea had a fire in an auxiliary engine space early to mid-July 1984 while in drydock at Todd Shipyard, Seattle, Washington. There were no significant personnel injuries."


1985 -- Polar Sea: "The Polar Sea encountered a rogue wave off the coast of Queen Charlotte Island in the Gulf of Alaska in [October of] 1985. An MST3 died of head injuries shortly after tumbling head over heels from one end of the bridge to another several times and crashing head first into the helm console. An ensign suffered a broken arm."

The Coast Guardsman who lost his life was MST3 Bradley J. Galik, USCG.

Fire

Minor (see below)


Cutter Division originally classified this mishap as "minor" but in fact the fire killed Chase crewman MK3 Nicholas V. Berei, USCG. The fire caused extensive damage and the cutter had to be towed into port by CGC Chilula for lengthy repairs.

1989 -- Chandeleur
: "The Chandeleur struck a coral head in June of 1989 in the Bahamas. It made its way back to Miami on one screw where temporary repairs were effected (replaced the stbd screw). It then made its way on one screw to the CG yard for repairs. I believe this resulted in the first strut replacement done on a 110'. Damage sustained was: cracked stbd fin stabilizer, bent port and stbd screws, bent port shaft, bent port strut, cracked port rudder."

1992 -- Point Harris:
"The Point Harris was badly damaged during Hurricane Iniki in Hawaii in 1992. She was decommissioned and sold."


1993 -- Boutwell: "In [1992] the Boutwell was struck by a rogue wave while in transit to her ALPAT area. The bridge crew reported green water breaking over the pilot house. The wave heavily damaged the RHI, stove in a watertight door, carried away a weatherdeck ladder and a P-250 pump and smashed a porthole in the XO's head."

[This incident occurred on 13 December 1992 as per R. M. EdAngelis (Ed.), "Marine Weather Review [-] Casualties," Mariner's Weather Log 37, 2 (Spring, 1993), p. 76. The Marine Weather Log report stated: "The USCGC Boutwell was on Alaska patrol on the 13th and they were battling 30-ft seas when a 'freak' wave estimated at more than 40 ft crested and broke over the ship, staving in a water tight door and causing other minor damage."]


1994 -- Polar Star: "In January 1994 the Polar Star's number 1 auxiliary boiler blew up due to a firebox explosion. The burner door almost blew clean off as described in the 1999 accident, and the whole upper end of the boiler's air box ripped open causing approx 100,000dollars worth of damage. Due to the grace of God no one was injured. . .The cause was found to be a contaminated main flame fuel valve. Anyway the crew quickly extinguished all fires and eased all steam pressure from the affected systems. The Seattle Fire Department double checked. The blast had been heard from at least 2 miles away. My boys did everything right that night. I departed Polar Star in June of 1994 just days before light offs on the newly rebuilt number 1 boiler."


1994 -- Spencer: "In February, 1994, the USCGC Spencer (WMEC-905) experienced a fire in an electronics space on the 02 deck forward of the hanger, days before getting underway for an Atlantic fisheries patrol. The fire was extinguished by duty section personnel and the Boston Fire Department, but not before it gutted the space and burned through an expansion joint and slightly warped the aluminum bulkheads and overhead. The crew of the Spencer had the space cleaned out and assessed the necessary repairs, enabling the cutter to get underway on time. Spencer returned to port nine days later to have the repairs performed and equipment replaced, and then resumed the patrol."


1995 -- Point Evans: "In 1995 the Point Evans ran aground near Molikini Crater leaving a 12-foot long six-inch deep indentation in her keel and rather large pieces missing from her prop."


1996 -- Firebush: "The Firebush ran hard aground in April of 1996 in Bechivan Bay, Alaska. A M/V attempted to help her off (the M/V ended up running aground herself). She later floated free of the sand she was stuck on."


1997 -- Cowslip:
"The Cowslip collided with the M/V Ever Grade (Panamanian) in the
Columbia River on 15 May 1997. She was repaired and returned to service."


1997 -- Polar Star:
"Polar Sea rammed in to the M/V Green Wave while tying up to the ice pier [at McMurdo Base, Ross Island] during her Deep Freeze 1997 deployment [early-February 1997]. The Green Wave claimed $300,000 worth of damage to itself, while the Polar Sea will wear a 10-foot long crease in its port racing stripe to its grave."


1998 -- Polar Star: "In early November 1998 the Polar Star was southbound, near Hawaii, when one of her boilers exploded the inspection door open. This door nailed a young fireman square in the forehead causing major injuries."

"I was on Polar Star Aug-95 to Aug-98. Unless the above was a nearly duplicate incident. . . .this actually occurred in July 98 while heading northbound to the Arctic. I still remember the poor fireman crying out in sickbay after the incident -- he was lucky to have lived. We had to sit in Kodiak AK for several days to rig a donkey boiler so we could continue up north to the Arctic."



Miscellaneous:

  • The CGC Spar ran aground, punching a small hole in her hull in the forward magazine.  Spar was ordered to sail to the Baltimore, MD, shipyard for repairs.  The hole was bout the size of 1 or 2 fingers (a lot of us inserted our fingers while the Buoy Tender was up on the ways!) as well as a dent in the hull!
  • "[Confidence; WMEC-619]. . .while on maneuvers in the Gulf of Alaska near Kodiak we attempted to set an HH-52A down on our flight deck during rough seas.  Two seamen secured one of the choppers rails and as the ship rolled the pilot attempted to pull up and flipped over the side of the ship and landed upside down in the water.  Inflatable rafts were used to keep her afloat and the Citrus came out to help a Navy ship raise her.  No damage to the Connie but the 52A was a mess."
  • "The Cape Fairweather was hit by a rogue wave that damaged the starboard side of the superstructure, blew out a porthole and smashed the glass in another porthole."
  • "CGC Scioto sank. . .in the 79-80 time frame.  I have a picture someone gave me back in '99 of nothing showing but the searchlight above the water.  The man who gave me the picture said it was hit by an ice flow on the Missouri River near its homeport at the time near Leavenworth and refloated a year later."
  • "The Hawser ran aground in the early 1980s while exiting the Great Egg Inlet."
  • In late-1985 to 1989 when the Polar Sea was backing out of her berth at Pier 36 to get underway, her Barber Coleman computer propulsion control failed. This caused all her propulsion diesels to quit, and the cutter had no way to check her sternward momentum. She careened into the pilings alongside Harbor Island and a moored barge. That scrape left the Polar Sea with one foot of her stern beat in. The damage remains to this day and has only been continually painted over. The outcome of that incident is that all Polar class cutters are required to have two tugs assist each one into and out of its berth in Seattle, no exceptions!  The outcome of this incident is that Polar Sea is the Coast Guard's only 398-foot cutter."
  • "[In the 1984-1986 timeframe the CGC Planetree] struck a submerged object in Glacier Bay Alaska while working a temp buoy.  Then on the way back out they struck it again, but this time opened up the bottom, which flooded the sewage compartment and main hold.  CGC Woodrush was asked for all pumps available to be dropped off by an HH-3F.  The Woodrush was also tasked with getting underway and mooring up beside the Planetree to be the food service and bathroom service while patching was completed.  Then CGC Planetree headed for Ketchikan, Alaska with the CGC Woodrush following in case something was to happen.  I was on the CGC Woodrush at the time."

 


The Mesquite aground
