From: Senior Investigating Officer, Coast Guard Marine Safety Office, Milwaukee, WI
Summary:
On December 11, 1998, at approximately 0515 the F/V LINDA E with three persons onboard departed Port Washington, Wisconsin enroute a position nine miles southeast to retrieve and set one of two gangs of gill nets. The last known contact with the LINDA E occurred at 0946 when a representative of Smith Brother Fish Company in Port Washington, Wisconsin called the LINDA E by cellular telephone. The LINDA E would normally return to Port Washington between 1300 and 1500 the same day. The Coast Guard was notified at approximately 2000 that the LINDA E was overdue.
