From the Seattle Times:
Lt. Marina Turner at the Coast Guard office in Seattle said the spill, called into the Coast Guard at about 10:45 a.m., was not potentially harmful to marine mammals and was evaporating naturally.
The Coast Guard and Ecology aren’t sure what caused the spill, but Turner said it may have been from a boat that had fueled up at the marina and then accidentally spilled some of the diesel.
Couple things here; First: there is no fuel in the harbor, so how could someone be fueling up there. Second, if a spill that big is no big deal I’m going to stop worrying about a couple drops at the gas dock. I’m not saying I don’t think it was an accident, I believe it probably was, I just don’t buy the whole it’s no big deal thing.
Good Fishin' To Ya'
