The 163 gt fishing vessel Italian Princess became disabled while off Nantucket, Massachusetts. The vessel had suffered a leak and the crew was unable to make repairs. The crew contacted the Coast Guard who dispatched two cutters along with a Jayhawk helicopter to the scene. The cutters were able to assist with de-watering the vessel and proceeded to take the Italian Princess under tow to New Bedford. No reports of injuries to the seven crew on board and no pollution was released.
