WA - 4 missing aboard Lady Cecelia as debris field, oil sheen found

4 fishermen missing after debris spotted off Washington (AP)

ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) -- Authorities searched Saturday for four fishermen after crews found a debris field and an oil sheen several miles off the Washington coast.

The emergency beacon from an Oregon-based fishing boat led rescuers to the debris field and a damaged lifeboat, the Coast Guard said.

The distress signal came early Saturday from the 62-foot fishing vessel Lady Cecelia, which has a home port in Warrenton, Ore. and is registered to Dale Kent of Bay City, Ore. He could not be reached Saturday by The Associated Press, but the ship's owner told the Guard that four people had been aboard.

"The life raft was in no condition to be used," said Coast Guard Petty Officer Shawn Eggert. "There was a lot of debris, a sheen and the (beacon)."

Doesn't the debris field and oil slick suggest an explosion of some sort? (I don't claim to be an expert on boats.)

Bless their souls... being a fisherman is considered the most dangerous job in the US. When a FV boat goes goes down, it goes quickly...

People are running on 2 theories: rogue wave or hit by a passing cargo ship. One of the men was considering leaving the industry and had second thoughts about going out this time.
