A review of Coast Guard inspection records for the stricken dive boat Conception appears to show Coast Guard inspectors found only minor infractions after checking the boat in February and March 2018 and that the deficiencies were quickly corrected.
Coast Guard “deficiencies” listed for the Conception in February 2018 included citations for expired first aid kit contents, a missing navigation light and missing drug test papers for one crewman.
The first aid contents were renewed, the navigation light fixed and the proper drug papers were filed by March 2018, the Coast Guard data states.
