SHALOM & STOLT DAGALI
NOVEMBER 26, 1964

This is the first distress message received by the Third Coast Guard District Search and Rescue Center in New York at 2:20 a.m. EST, Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 1964. "Coast Guard Radio Station New York, this is Coast Guard Radio Station Boston. Are you reading a steamship with urgent traffic on 2182 kilocycles? Heard her call with PAN, but am not reading her too good" ... "Search and Rescue Net, this is Coast Guard Radio Station New York. SOS on 500 kilocycles by LASM (call sign of M/V STOLT DAGALI) will amplify." With this word of the major marine disaster which was taking place off the northern New Jersey coast, 46 miles southeast of New York, the Coast Guard placed its search and rescue plan into immediate operation. By coordinating rescue efforts of a fleet of Coast Guard and Navy helicopters, six Coast Guard cutters and three merchant vessels, plus the SHALOM which picked up five survivors, 24 of the 43 cremen of the STOLT DAGALI were saved.

STOLT DAGALI
NOVEMBER 26, 1964

The 440-foot bow section of the Norwegian tanker, M.V. STOLT DAGALI, is being towed by the tug, CYNTHIA MORAN (not shown), toward New York off the northern New Jersey coast on Friday, November 27th, 1964. The bow section was escorted to New York by the Coast Guard cutter CAPE STRAIT, and later by the Coast Guard cutter POINT ARDEN. The 582-foot, 12,723-ton STOLT DAGALI was in a collision with the Israeli luxury liner, S.S. SHALOM, on Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 46 miles southeast of New York in the Atlantic Ocean. The 140-foot section of the stern sank immediately after the collision. The 629-foot, 23,000-ton SHALOM received a 40-foot long gash on her starboard side as a result of the collision. The SHALOM, escorted by the 327-foot Coast Guard cutter SPENCER, returned to New York to disembark her 616 passengers and 460 crewmen. The STOLT DAGALI was enroute to Newark, N.J., from Philadelphia, with a cargo of vegetable oil and fats when the collision took place. By coordinating the rescue efforts of a fleet of Coast Guard and Navy helicopters, six Coast Guard cutters and three merchant vessels, plus the SHALOM, which picked up five survivors, 24 of the 43 crewmen of the STOLT DAGALI were saved. A Coast Guard helicopter from the Coast Guard Air Station, Brooklyn, N.Y., removed a crewwoman from the SHALOM, who had been caught in a watertight door which slammed shut on her. She required immediate medical attentionff. (USCG)

SS FERNVIEW & M/V DYNAFUEL COLLISION
November 14, 1963

At 0655 on November 14th 1963 the 510 foot Norwegian freighter FERNVIEW collided with the 309 foot DYNAFUEL on a foggy morning in Buzzards Bay. The FERNVIEW was able to travel to Boston MA under her own power but the DYNAFUEL sank. The U.S. Coast Guard determined the FERNVIEW to be at fault.

The photographer, Leonard Kingsbury, was a Photographers Mate in the Coast Guard and was flown to the scene and dropped on the deck of the 125 Foot CGC General Greene.

In the last photo can be seen a 40 footer, 36 footer, 125 foot LEGARE, a 95 footer, a 44 footer and the General Greene.
