WASHINGTON FISHING BOAT AVOIDS SINKING NEAR NEAH BAY

March 21, 2010 – The SUNDOWN, a forty foot fishing vessel, has reportedly been saved from sinking with the assistance of the United States Coast Guard. The SUNDOWN radioed for help indicating they were taking on water at around noon on Sunday. Another fishing vessel, the VICIOUS FISHER, was able to render aid to the SUNDOWN before the Coast Guard arrived and before the vessel sank. Five dewatering pumps were needed to bring the flooding under control. The SUNDOWN is being towed by the VICIOUS FISHER to Neah Bay with a motor life boat standing by.
