The Coast Guard terminated the voyage of a fishing vessel out of Newport, Ore., Friday. Coast Guard Cutter Orcas boarding team members discovered the 50-foot fishing vessel Way to Go II was not licensed for commercial fishing
and did not have required life-saving immersion suits on board during a routine boarding approximately two miles west of Newport.
Coast Guard Cutter Orcas then escorted the vessel to Yaquina Bay in Newport.
A Captain of the Port Order has been placed on the vessel requiring that it remain in port until the violations have been corrected.
