The hearings will continue through August 13.
Coast Guard officials will consider evidence related to the April incident in which 13 crew members died. According to the Coast Guard, The National Transportation Safety Board is the leading agency in the Seacor Power investigation, and will participate in the Coast Guard public hearing, but will produce an independent report with its own findings.
