Coast Guard Investigates Vessel Sinking in Cruz Bay

U.S. Coast Guard officials are investigating what caused a 25-foot Mako named “Good Greef” to flip over in Cruz Bay sometime late Sunday night or early Monday morning.

The investigation could take a while, however, according to Coast Guard public affairs specialist Ricardo Castrodad. Castrodad estimated it might take a month or more to get to the bottom of what happened.

Boat owner Gregory Pogson told the Source there was at least one eyewitness to the occurrence that sunk his boat. Pogson said he’s been told that a ferry boat struck “Good Greef,” but he said he would like to find more witnesses.

Castrodad said he could not comment on the circumstances while the accident was under active investigation.
