A 67-foot steel-hulled fishing trawler went aground in Woods Hole passage late Monday morning. No injuries were reported after the vessel, named Hope & Sydney, struck Middle Ledge.

The Coast Guard said the large vessel was able to sail free on her own power at about 3:45 p.m., four hours after running aground at the point where the main channel, known to mariners as The Straight, branches off to a secondary channel known as Broadway. The ledge is marked by a fixed day mark and a large green floating buoy.

“Everybody’s accounted for and safe,” said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class LaNola Stone said early Monday afternoon. “There is no fuel in the water. They’re just waiting for the tide to float it off.”

The Coast Guard said the vessel had about 5,000 gallons of diesel fuel aboard, as well as 2,500 pounds of squid.

The Coast Guard broadcast frequent warnings throughout the day advising mariners passing near the grounded vessel to pass at a “slow bell,” a nautical term which means to reduce speed and proceed with caution.

Home port for the trawler is Point Judith, R.I.

This is the second time this year the vessel has needed assistance.

According to the Coast Guard, the Hope & Sydney lost steering and power in March of this year about 70 miles east of Cape May. The crew of a Coast Guard cutter towed the trawler back to Cape May.
