The 76 foot fishing vessel United States became disabled from a 1 inch hole that was 6 inches below the waterline while off Nantucket, Massachusetts. The fishing vessel began to flood from the water ingress and the vessel’s master sent out a distress signal. The Coast Guard responded by sending a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter with a dewatering pump. The helicopter lowered the pump to the United States which got the flooding under control. The vessel was then escorted to New Beford, Massachusetts where it moored.
