COAST GUARD RESPONDS TO FISHING VESSEL DIANE LYNN II
On August 30, 2009, the Coast Guard reported that it received a distress call from the fishing vessel the DIANE LYNN II, a 65 foot dragger, when it began taking on water off the coast of Maine. The vessel was on its way to offload its catch when it began taking on water, however the dewatering pumps couldn’t keep up.
The Coast Guard arrived on scene approximately an hour later and helped secure the source of the flooding. The vessel was able to sail to the Harbor with a Coast Guard escort where it offloaded its catch before undergoing repairs.
