“Today, it's basically monitoring the situation. The main pollution threat has been responded to,” Linda Kent told The News Tribune of Tacoma.
The leak on the 28-foot pleasure craft was discovered shortly after 6 p.m. at Lucas Landing.

Global Diving and Salvage divers plugged the leak and recovered an additional 15 gallons from the fiberglass boat.
