A Coast Guard Station Point Judith 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew assisted in the rescue. By the time they arrived on scene, the tug was completely submerged and all three tug crewmembers were on the barge. The RB-M crew rescued the tug’s crew and safely transported them back to the station. No injuries were reported.
The weather on scene was five mph winds and three- to five-foot feet.

The proposed redevelopment would include an office, a second boatworks building, retail and additional office space for lease, a boaters’ lounge, a larger restaurant, and a distillery with bar. A new and wider boardwalk would improve public access to the waterfront. The damaged buildings would be demolished.
Thus far, the project has received support from many town residents and officials.
