On: 10/23/2008 MISLE Activity Number: 3354250 Originating Unit: Sector Delaware Bay MISLE Activity Owner: Commandant (CG-5453) MISLE Activity Controller: Commandant (CG-5453) MISLE Case Number: I. INCIDENT BRIEF Pilot on board M/V CHEMTRANS SKY called in and reported the vessel was having issues with engine cooling. Vessel anchored at Big Stone anchorage. Upon further examination of the cooling system it was found that an absorbent pad had settled to the bottom of an expansion tank used for the main engine cooling system. The pad was pulled into the valve as it opened and constricted the flow of water and in turn kept the engine from being cooled properly.
