Coast Guard Renders Aid to Disabled Ship Near Adak

On December 8, 2011, crews with the Coast Guard Cutter Sherman and an Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter delivered steering system technicians to the 650-foot cargo ship MORNING CEDAR at a location 17 miles from Bobrof Island in the Aleutian Islands.

The cargo vessel suffered a steering casualty while in transit from Canada to Japan with 23 crew aboard and a load of packaged timber. The Coast Guard began monitoring the drifting vessel on December 5, when the master reported the steering malfunction.
