Case Description

The M/V Cape Flattery is a 555-foot long, foreign-flagged cargo ship. On the early morning of February 2, 2005, the M/V Cape Flattery ran aground on coral reef habitat outside the entrance channel to Barbers Point Harbor on the southwestern coast of the island of Oahu, Hawaii. The ship was carrying approximately 9 metric tons of bulk pelletized cement and 147,000 gallons of fuel oil. Over the next nine days, the ship’s fuel was lightered, the cargo was offloaded and on February 11, the ship was refloated and towed from the reef.
