The boatcrew approached the boat and the operator stated they were taking on water due to several waves crashing over the bow of the boat. Two boarding team members went aboard the pleasure craft and discovered approximately 50 gallons of water in the bilge. Three people were transferred to the Coast Guard smallboat while the boarding team and operator continued de-watering operations using a pump and bucket until the boat was successfully dewatered. The boat and four people were then escorted to Glen Cove Marina with no reported injuries -USCG-#AceNewsDesk
