Thursday, July 02, 2009

More than two dozen Sea Scouts were rescued by the Coast Guard this week after their boat began taking on water in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta near Concord, authorities said. According to Petty Officer Levi Read, the crew of the 85-ft. SSS Farallon reported that there were eight inches of water in the bilge shortly before noon and sent out a distress call. The Coast Guard sent out a helicopter and boats and rescued 33 people, 27 of whom were Sea Scouts. They were put on a ferry and taken to Vallejo. The flooding on the Farallon was controlled, and the boat maneuvered under its own power to Alameda for repairs, Read said.
