Marine Accident Brief: Stranding and Subsequent Loss of the Fishing Vessel Miss Annie​, December 19, 2019

On December 19, 2019, about 0700, the fishing vessel Miss Annie was transiting out of Calibogue Sound, 2.3 miles north of Tybee Island, Georgia, when the vessel stranded on a submerged wreck. The three crewmembers aboard remained with the vessel until they were rescued by the US Coast Guard, and the vessel later broke apart. No pollution or injuries were reported. The vessel was a total loss. The vessel value was estimated at $60,000. ​The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the Miss Annie stranding and subsequent loss was the vessel striking an unmarked wreck, whose position had shifted from its previous known position and was yet to be charted or announced in the notice to mariners.
