Investigation resumes into Katmai tragedy

The investigation resumes today in the tragic sinking of the Ballard-based Katmai fishing vessel. According to the Seattle Times, the Coast Guard is testing the buoyancy of the life raft to see if it inflated properly. Back in October, seven crew members were killed when the Katmai sunk off the Aleutian Islands. Four survived by clinging to a life raft for 17 hours in their survival suits.
