Coast Guard Assists Grounded Boat In Little Sturgeon Bay

 


The Coast Guard was pressed into action early Wednesday to help three people whose boat ran aground in Little Sturgeon Bay.

The Coast Guard says just after midnight a search-and-rescue (SAR) controller at Coast Guard Sector Lake Michigan in Milwaukee received a report that an 18-foot pleasure craft with three people aboard had run aground about 50 yards offshore in Little Sturgeon Bay.

The Coast Guard issued a marine assistance radio broadcast to solicit help from nearby boaters. After receiving no response, the SAR controller directed the launch of a 25-foot rescue boat from the Coast Guard Station in Sturgeon Bay.

The crew successfully freed the vessel and escorted the boat to Wave Point Marina.

"The crew responded exceptionally well during the late night response," says Petty Officer 2nd Class Nathan Disher, coxswain of the rescue boat. "This case underscores the importance of boaters getting familiar with the local waterways, especially if they are boating at night."
