Genovesa day trip ship burns up - no injuries
This 16 passenger day outing ship burned up last weekend just off Las Bachas beach, on the north end of Santa Cruz island. Despite a rapid response from nearby ships, they were not able to control the fire and the ship was completely destroyed. Nobody was hurt. The Genovesa had just been refurbished in 2012. If you had any plans to use this ship in the coming days/weeks, we suggest you revisit them.
