The fishing vessel Yakov Pavlov collided with the fishing vessel Komandor in the eastern section of the Sea of Okhotsk. The Yakov Pavlov was undamaged, but the Komandor hull was holed and had water ingress. The master of the Komador ballasted one side of the vessel. This caused a 15 degree list and lifted the holed section of the hull above the waterline. The Crew made temporary repairs while pumping the water out. The Komador also sent a request to the salvage tug Spravediviy for assistance. Both tug and fishing vessel are proceeding to Kamchatka.
