The 31 foot long fishing vessel Two Sons became waterlogged while off Cape Mears, Oregon. The source of the water was the fish storage compartment. The ice on board had melted into 500 gallons of water. The Two Sons crew contacted the Coast Guard who dispatched a Jayhawk helicopter to the scene. The helicopter lowered a pump to the crew, but the pump failed after overheating. The Coast Guard 47 foot lifeboat was called out with a second pump. This pump was successful in dewatering the fishing vessel. The Two Sons was escorted back to Garibaldi, Oregon. Reports state the fishing vessel had multiple citations when it was inspected. None of the two crew on board the Two Sons were injured.
The 31 foot fishing vessel Two Sons with 2 crew on board reported they were taking on water near the Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco. The crew sent out a distress call to the Coast Guard stating the vessel’s pumps were unable to keep up with the water ingress. The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter along with the 47 foot lifeboat and the 87 foot cutter Tern. The 47-foot lifeboat reached the scene and transferred two dewatering pumps to the Two Sons. However, the crew were unable to keep the pumps running. The cutter Tern brought two of their own crewmen on board the Two Sons to assist with the pumps. With this assistance, the pumps were able to completely de-water the fishing vessel. The Two Sons was escorted by the Tern to pier 45 in San Francisco Bay. No reports of injuries or pollution being released.
