This morning, February 12, 2022, KPK Radio Service received a radio call from FV LADY VICTORIA and learned the FV GOLD EAGLE sank in position 15-59 N / 080-30 W on the banks near Honduras overnight.
The FV LADY VICTORIA is a regular caller on the KPK net and reported they heard yelling and men in the water at approximately 0430 hrs, and hoisted the Captain and three crew members of the FV GOLD EAGLE out of the water. The Captain and all three crew members are safe.
Radio KPK then did a phone patch from the FV LADY VICTORIA to the owner of the FV GOLD EAGLE to let the owner know of the sinking.
