Charter Boat Operator Arrested for Violating Captain of the Port Order and Endangering Passengers

Terrance Dale Roy was arrested by Coast Guard Investigative Service special agents on July 21 and stands accused of violating a Coast Guard Captain of the Port Order issued pursuant to the Ports and Waterways Safety Act, as well as failing to properly report a hazardous condition and operating his boat in a grossly negligent manner. The Coast Guard issued Roy a Captain of the Port Order back in May after his vessel, the Fishing Lady, sank at a pier in Kent Narrows, Maryland. The order prohibited the vessel from operating commercially until the vessel’s seaworthiness was determined by Coast Guard. Without making the repairs necessary to have the order removed, Roy took on 34 paying passengers out over Father’s Day weekend. >click to read< , >more here<16:43
