Historic tug sinks at its slip, spills fuel in Puget Sound


(BAINBRIDGE ISLAND, Wash.) — Chickamauga, a 70-foot tugboat built in 1915, sank at its marina slip Wednesday morning and spilled an undetermined amount of fuel, the Bainbridge Island Review reported.

Seattle-based Global Diving & Salvage has been contracted for the cleanup and recovery.
