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.
