PORT TOWNSEND, Wash. —

Workers have pulled out a 30-foot boat that sank next to a dock at the marina at the Port of Port Townsend.

State Ecology Department spokeswoman Linda Kent says a quick response by the port staff also contained a diesel spill.

The vessel had about 180 gallons of the fuel on board. Up to 50 gallons was collected in a spill boom and absorbent materials. Kent commended the port for its fast action.

She says the boat that sank was a fiberglass dive vessel used for collecting sea cucumbers.
