East Hampton Star: Training and proper equipment saved 3 lives Saturday evening [Dec. 5] and prevented 150 gallons of fuel from spilling into the Atlantic, according to the Coast Guard and Roy Fridenberger, the captain of a family-owned commercial fishing boat that was beached after it began to sink Saturday evening.

The captain, along with 2 brothers, Bret and Troy Fridenberger Jr., were making the last voyage of the season before dry-docking the boat at Inlet Seafood in Montauk for the winter.
