Yesterday a Bellingham fishing vessel, the 80 foot Vicious Fisher, started taking on water and made a call to the Coast Guard requesting assistance. All five crewmen were rescued with the assistance of a rescue swimmer and a Motor Lifeboat rescue crew.
Watch a short video of the rescue taken from the Coast Guard helicopter. You can read the whole news release on the same page.
Its always scary to hear of boats from our fleet going down… just relieved everyone got off safely. Thanks Coast Guard!
