Damage claim for sailboat sunk by Washington ferryNovember 18, 2013 @ 10:09 am
PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) - The lawyer for a man whose sailboat was hit and sunk in the San Juan Islands by a state ferry says he hopes to settle a damage claim without a lawsuit.
Seattle lawyer Terry McGee told the Peninsula Daily News ( http://bit.ly/1edXzAj) he doesn't have a dollar figure for the claim because 68-year-old Jack Gray of Chimacum is still recovering from injuries and the value of the boat has yet to be determined.
McGee says the Washington State Ferries division has done a good job investigating the accident.
A report on the investigation released last week said human error by the crew of the ferry Hyak was responsible for the Sept. 13 collision near Orcas Island.
