The 738-foot tanker Golden Seas makes 3.5 mph through 20-foot seas north of Adak Island, Alaska, on Friday, Dec. 3, 2010. Coast Guard aircrews were launched from Air Station Kodiak in response to a report that the Golden Seas had lost propulsion and was drifting, but the crew of the vessel reported to a Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules aircrew that they had regained propulsion and were awaiting a tug to escort them to Dutch Harbor.
