The crew of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Anacapa rescued two men from a vessel taking on water approximately one mile southwest of Petersburg, Alaska, Tuesday.

A smallboat crew from the Anacapa took the 24-foot pleasure craft Deborah K under tow and safely transported its passengers to the port in Petersburg.

Coast Guard command center watchstanders at Sector Juneau received a call from passengers aboard the Deborah K reporting they had struck a rock and were taking on water near Wrangell Narrows. Watchstanders directed the crew of the Anacapa to respond and the crew of the Anacapa launched its smallboat crew to assist.

"The men aboard the Debra K did the right thing by quickly contacting the Coast Guard," said Lt. Ryan Erickson, chief of incident management, Coast Guard Sector Juneau. "Our crews train diligently to respond when needed, and Alaska's waters are still dangerously cold despite the warmer weather we experience this time of year."

There were no reported injuries and weather on scene was calm.
