On August 18, the 23 foot long fishing vessel Cecily Jean sprung a leak off Portsmouth, New Hampshire. The Cecily Jean discovered it was taking on water and sent out a distress call. Two 47-foot lifeboats were launched to the scene while two other vessels remained nearby the Cecily Jean. The Coast Guard lifeboat arrived and provided a dewatering pump to bring the flooding under control. The lifeboat took the Cecily Jean under tow back to port. No reports of injuries to the 2 crew on board.
