On 26 April, 2002 the T/V Asphalt Commander temporarily lost power
while transitting through the Gulf Of Mexico.
The pressure sensing line for the jacket water cooling system
on the #1 Ship Service Generator developed a leak.
This caused the generator is shut down which caused
the main engines to temporarily shut down.
The emergency generator came on line
and the main engines were restarted.
The broken sensor line was replaced with a spare
and the #1 generator was placed back on line.
