From the Yarmouth Division of Natural Resources - Jun 19th report on May 31st incident
Vessel Taking on Water - Disabled 5 miles South of Yarmouth.
On May 31, 2019 at approx 9:45PM Yarmouth Division of Natural Resources received information from US Coast Guard of a disabled fishing vessel taking on water 5mi south of Great Island, Yarmouth MA.
DNR personnel responded aboard our large response patrol boat J49 equipped with de-watering pumps.
Visibility was less than .10/mi proving to be difficult to navigate. Due to the vessel's state of the art radar and navigational equipment officers arrived on scene safely and secured to the vessel in distress.
YDNR made sure the vessel was not taking on any more water. Shortly after, a US Coast Guard response boat from Chatham, Ma arrived and towed the disabled vessel to Hyannis for repairs.
A happy ending for everyone involved!
