This Day in U.S. Coast Guard History - March 16

Wednesday, March 16, 2011
1909- At Assateague Beach, Virginia, the schooner Charley C. Weaver began taking on water. One of the crew notified the keeper that the schooner was leaking. The life-saving station's surfboat proceeded to the scene, 1-5/8 miles south of the station.  The schooner’s crew was nearly exhausted from a long spell at the pump.  Surfmen shifted her cargo of oysters.  They also tried to locate the leak, but were unsuccessful. They then went ashore and returned with the power lifeboat which towed the schooner safely over the bar.
