Distressed Mariners Rescued Near Seward, Alaska

The crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Long Island towed a disabled cabin cruiser, in danger of running aground, to safety near Seward Thursday.

The Long Island crew rendezvoused with the disabled vessel and its crew 300 yards from shore, took the vessel under tow and transported it to Seward where they transferred the tow to the Seward Fire Department.

The crew of the 37-foot Mystery Lady notified Coast Guard Sector Anchorage watchstanders after they lost propulsion one mile off shore in Resurrection Bay. The watchstanders directed the launch of an Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew and diverted the Long Island crew from a patrol in Prince William Sound.

“Surface assets like the Long Island patrol the waters of Alaska in order to quickly respond to mariners in distress,” said Petty Officer 1st Class Michael McCandless, a Sector Anchorage command center watchstander. “Their timely arrival and proficiency with towing operations allowed them to keep the Mystery Lady off the rocks, ultimately saving the vessel and her crew.”

Winds on scene were reported at 30 mph.
