Investigators to dive sunken vessel

The Coast Guard will use remotely operated vehicle technology to capture underwater images of the fishing vessel Patriot, which sank Jan. 3 off Gloucester, Mass. Investigators believe the mission will provide a clearer image of the Patriot, and may help determine what caused the boat to sink. The captain and his son-in-law drowned in the sinking.
