Captain Jeff Hathaway along with six crew members were 150 miles from St. George Island Alaska in early February 2017 fishing on the F/V Destination, a 98 foot crab boat. On February 11th, the U.S. Coast Guard received signals from an automatic emergency locator beacon. Upon arrival at scene, the Coast Guard identified the EPIRB belonging to the Destination. Debris was recovered including a life ring, buoys, tarps and an oil sheen was visible on the water.

After two days of coordinated search by air and sea covering almost 5,800 square miles, the Coast Guard halted the search.

Besides Captain Hathaway, those lost included Larry O’Grady, Raymond Vincler, Darrik Seibold, Charles G. Jones, and Kai Hamik. The late captain was known for his no nonsense approach to fishing especially on the Bering Sea. At the time of the sinking, the Destination was fishing for snow crab.

In early July of 2017, a NOAA research vessel located the ship in 250 feet of water using multi beam sonar. The Coast Guard as of August 2017 was still investigating the loss of this ship and crew.

Captain Jeff leaves behind a wife and daughter.
