The U.S, Coast Guard will conduct a public hearing beginning May 13 at Newport City Hall to consider evidence related to the Mary B II marine casualty investigation.

The hearing will focus on the capsizing of the commercial fishing vessel Mary B II, which led to the deaths of three fishermen at the entrance of Yaquina Bay in Newport on Jan. 8.

The three fishermen were inbound the Yaquina Bay Bar aboard the 42-foot vessel Mary B II when it capsized into the stormy Pacific Ocean with reported waves of 14 to 16 feet with occasional waves of 20 feet.

The hearing is scheduled to convene at the Newport City Hall, 169 SW Coast Highway, at 8 a.m. May 13 and will continue to May 17. The hearing will be streamed live each day at: https://livestream.com/accounts/17374493/events/8625145.

This e-mail will be checked regularly and all correspondence will be acknowledged. The e-mail is MaryBII.uscg@gmail.com.

Throughout the investigation, the Coast Guard will also continue to monitor any email that is sent to accidentinfo@uscg.mil and all information sent to that address will be reviewed and responded to.
