STATEMENT BY NTSB ACTING CHAIRMAN MARK V. ROSENKER
ON INVESTIGATION OF SINKING OF THE ETHAN ALLEN

************************************************************

National Transportation Safety Board Acting Chairman Mark V. 
Rosenker issued the following statement today related to the 
progress of the Board's investigation of the October 2 
sinking of the Ethan Allen.
 
Washington, DC --The National Transportation Safety Board is 
continuing to make progress on its investigation into the 
recent capsizing of the Ethan Allen in Lake George, New 
York.  Investigators are gathering and examining 
documentation coming from both federal and state 
authorities.
 
The team is continuing to examine the vessel and is planning 
to put her back in the water for additional tests and 
measurements in the coming days.
 
Although NTSB continues to make progress, the investigative 
team has not reached any conclusions to date about the cause 
of this tragedy and has not ruled any factors out.  The team 
continues to study design, modifications, operations, human 
factors, rules and regulations, and survival factors.
 
Future factual updates will be issued when appropriate.
 
Completion of this investigation could take anywhere from 12 
to 24 months.  Safety recommendations may be issued at any 
time.
