Cables atop a crane go straight into water at the site of a sunken 75-foot vessel as a containment boom is tossed off a barge toward it today in the Puget Sound off Seattle. Coast Guard Petty Officer Nathan Bradshaw says there are 300 gallons of diesel and 30 gallons of motor oil onboard the vessel in sealed tanks. The sinking was reported at about 8 a.m. while the vessel was tied to the barge about 300 yards off shore. There are no injuries.
