The Amver participating commercial ship British Trader was diverted by United States Coast Guard search and rescue authorities early Saturday June 27th to assist a disabled vessel in the Gulf of Mexico. The British Trader arrived on the scene, launched a rescue boat, and boarded the disabled vessel to see if they could repair their engines. The British Trader crew could not repair the engine and coordinated with an Offshore Supply Vessel to tow the disabled boat to port.
As we learn more we will update the blog.
