The 40 foot fishing vessel Full Circle sank in the harbor at New Bedford, Massachusetts. A boom was placed around the vessel divers were requested. The divers were able to attach straps around the hull and the Full Circle was raised later the same day. The cause of the sinking was not known, but the vessel had a history of sinking. The vessel had sat idle since it sank on September 22, 2011 in the same location. The sinking was caused by a leak around the propeller flooding the hull. The vessel was raised and it’s fuel tanks were pumped out.
The vessel was to be scheduled to be sold later this week. The Coast Guard is conducting an investigation into the sinking.
