ANCHORAGE, Alaska—The captain of a state ferry made a maneuvering error in strong currents that couldn't be corrected before the Matanuska slammed into a seafood company's dock when sailing into Petersburg.
Those are the findings of a state report into the May 7 accident that caused significant damage to the Ocean Beauty Seafoods' dock.
It's not immediately clear if Macaulay faces punishment. The report's recommendation says the crew will face appropriate administrative actions but those would be confidential. The report didn't find fault with any other crew member's performance.
