KODIAK (AP) — A disabled tug that was drifting off the coast of Alaska arrived Monday afternoon in Cordova under its own power after the crew was able to make minor repairs.

Spokeswoman Sara Francis says the Coast Guard will inspect final repairs on the 66-foot tug once they are completed before it is allowed to continue its voyage.

The tug with a crew of four lost steering and was drifting Sunday evening about 30 miles south of Cordova. The crew made makeshift repairs, and the Capt. Hendren was able to sail to Cordova. A Coast Guard cutter accompanied it.

The vessel's homeport is Portland, Ore. The tug was on its way to Nome when it became disabled.
