    Anyone know where I can get hold of this report?

    Is this related to a specific sinking? Do you know the vessel's name?

    NTSB reports go back that far, though you may have to order them. Failing that, call the Coast Guard museum in Seattle and they can probably help you.

    Thanks. I traced it to DTIC, but was hoping there might be an electronic copy around. I've ordered it from NTIS.
