Tug Tiger, Richmond - December 2011

Coast Guard and Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) personnel responded to a report of the Tug Tiger, a decommissioned 205-foot former Navy tug, sinking while moored in Richmond, Dec. 11.

On Jan. 12, 2012, the tug was righted, and on Feb. 4, 2012, it was de-watered and re-floated, a process that readied it for oil extraction. (Watch video at Tug Tiger San Francisco)

Some 961 gallons of oil and 80,092 gallons of oily water was removed from the vessel. The response was officially ended on March 19, 2012.
