Thursday morning while conducting training offshore, the U.S. Coast
Guard Station Oregon Inlet received notification over VHF-FM radio from
the vessel Kokomo that there was a small 20’ pleasure craft that had
run aground and was possibly taking on water behind the Oregon Inlet
of the Coast Guard’s 47’ motor lifeboats (MLB) immediately broke from
training and raced to the site to assist. Upon arriving on scene, the
47258 MLB was able to toss a line over to the vessel and pull them into
the marked navigable channel. At the same time, the station’s 24536 MLB
arrived on scene and put the disabled vessel into side tow.
24536 MLB brought the disabled vessel and all three people on board
back to the Oregon Inlet Boat Ramps, arriving safely before noon. No
injuries were reported during the incident.
