ROCKLAND, Maine (AP) - Officials with the Coast Guard say crews oversaw the removal of oil products from a grounded boat off of Rockland.

The Coast Guard says the vessel became grounded near Jameson Point on Monday and crews oversaw the owner’s removal of diesel fuel, lube oil and hydraulic oil on Tuesday afternoon. The boat is called Rockland Gulf and it is a fish tender, which is a vessel that supplies, stores, refrigerates, or transports fish and materials related to fishing.

The Coast Guard, state environmental officials and the local harbormaster all responded. The vessel’s owner is making plans with a salvage company to refloat the boat. The Coast Guard says it will continue to monitor salvage operations.
