On April 27, the 63 foot long fishing vessel Paulo Marc became disabled 90 miles off Portland, Maine. The trawler had suffered engine problems which left it without power while out fishing for groundfish. The vessel requested assistance with the Coast Guard dispatching the 87 foot cutter to the scene. The cutter towed the Paulo Marc towards Portland where near the shoreline another fishing vessel took over the tow. No reports of injuries to the four crew on board.
