Coastal Currents: Sunken Stories

Mike Dronkers / Wednesday, Feb. 29, 2012 @ 11:27 a.m.

Today we speak with Chuck DeWitt, who's been working with Veterans For Peace on restoring The Golden Rule, a historic sailing vessel that protested nuclear testing in the South Pacific.

Before sinking in Humboldt Bay, the Golden Rule had a storied career:

"This little ship was sailed by four brave crewmen, led by Albert Bigelow, in an attempt to stop atmospheric nuclear testing in the Marshall Islands.  They were boarded by the US Coast Guard, arrested, and the boat towed back to Honolulu, twice."

Join them in celebrating its restoration at a Whiskey Plank parton Sunday in Fairhaven.
