The Coast Guard assisted three mariners after their boat began taking on water in Moriches Bay, NY, on Sunday, May 21.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound received a report from Station Shinnecock stating one of their 29’ Response Boat-smalls (RBS) was flagged down by a 21’ vessel which was taking on water.

The RBS boat crew assisted the mariners with dewatering efforts and safely towed the vessel up the Forge River to the owner’s residence.
