Fishing Vessel Assisted off Cape Cod

Two aircraft from Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod responded Sunday night, March 18, to a distress call from a disabled fishing vessel roughly 110 miles east of Cape Cod.

Crew aboard the Captain Joe reported that the vessel was without power and needed a battery to run a generator. Upon arriving on-scene, an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew lowered a fresh battery to crewmembers aboard the Captain Joe, after which the vessel was able to proceed under its own power.
