The state Department of Ecology, Coast Guard and Makah tribe responded to the 88-foot Kristena Rose after the boat ran aground at Shipwreck Point on Monday evening.
The commercial fishing boat was pulled off the beach about 2 a.m. today, with help from a second fishing vessel which provided a pull.
The Kristena Rose is now docked in Neah Bay. There is a floating boom around the vessel as a precautionary step until the boat
has been inspected by the Coast Guard and allowed to get under way.
There has been no spill or discharge, Ecology reported.
