MRMA Members…


Captain Jack Levine, Bar Pilot Station Captain, just called to report that the MV Zagora is aground at light 19, approximately mm10 BHP due to a loss of steering.   It was drafting 21’.


The vessel is NOT blocking deep draft vessel traffic at this time.     Should this situation elevate to a point where it effects navigation, MRMA will report immediately.
