Tug Nathan E Stewart and Fuel Barge
- Time/Date of Incident
- Spill Number
- This is a potential spill. The crew of the Tug Nathan E Stewart reported to the USCG that a series of 30-foot seas washed over the vessel, and water entered the engine air intakes. Power was lost in both the starboard and port engines. The starboard engine remains non-operational, but partial power has been restored to the port engine. The power in the port engine was not enough to fully navigate the vessels during the severe weather on December 18. At 10:56 PM on December 18 the weather improved enough to allow the tug and barge to transit southeast under their own power.
