This Day in U.S. Coast Guard History - March 23

Wednesday, March 23, 2011
1974- The 40-foot sailing vessel Lorisel II reported she was aground one mile southeast of North Rock, Bahamas, off the eastern shore of Bimini.  An HU-16 aircraft and the CGC Cape Shoalwater were dispatched to assist.  The aircraft located the vessel and a local island boat, which was diverted to remove two women and a child from Lorisel II.  Cape Shoalwater re-floated the vessel, returned the passengers, and the Lorisel II got underway with no apparent damage.
 
2001- Two Coast Guardsmen, BM2 Scott Chism and SN Christopher Ferreby, gave their lives in the line of duty when their small boat CG-214341 capsized on Lake Ontario.  Their loss led to important changes in the small boat community's training, equipment and operations.
