Watchstanders in the Sector North Carolina Command Center in Wilmington received a report at about 8 a.m. that a 33-foot pleasure craft was taking on water with five people aboard approximately 15 miles southeast of Carolina Beach.
A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew launched from Station Wrightsville Beach, arrived on scene at about 8:35 a.m. and delivered a dewatering pump. The pump was able to keep up with the flooding while the Coast Guard escorted the pleasure craft to Carolina Beach Inlet, where a TowBoatUS vessel crew took the boat in tow to Carolina Beach Boat Yard.
“The Coast Guard encourages all mariners to have a commercial salvage membership in case of breakdowns requiring a tow back to shore,” said Petty Officer Second Class Ian Callahan, coxswain for the case. “But we are always prepared to respond to emergency situations on the water.”
