Coast Guard saves disabled vessel, crew in Northeast Harbor, Maine U.S. Coast Guard
The Coast Guard towed a disabled vessel after it hit a submerged object and started flooding in the vicinity of Bear Island, Maine. The captain of the 28-foot sportfisher, Jammie Dodger, called Coast Guard Station Southwest Harbor at about noon reporting his boat was taking on water, and the two people aboard needed help.

A 47-foot boat crew from Station Southwest Harbor launched and put the vessel in tow. The Jammie Dodger's pumps kept up with the flooding as rescue crew made way toward land. They took the vessel to a pier in Somes Sound, where Jammie Dodger made repair plans.

No injuries were reported.
