Chief J.D. Arndt. the Coast Guard
received a call at about 8:30 p.m.,
Oct. 18, from a citizen who reported
a vessel aground near the beach line
about a quarter-mile west of Yaupon
The station launched its 21 -foot
rigid-hulled inflatable fast-response
boat and issued a Marine Assistance
Radio Broadcast (MARB) to give
commercial salvors an opportunity
to handle the case. No response was
received, Arndt said.
Arriving on scene, the 21 -footer
found the vessel close to the shore
"It was being picked up by the in
coming surf and occasionally touch

The Coast Guard boat provided
immediate assistance by pulling the
fishing boat out to deeper water,
where the crew was able to remove
the net and get underway.
Friday morning at about 8:30, the
station received a call from the skip
per of the sailing vessel "Cold
Gold, " reporting himself "disorient
ed" in the vicinity of Frying Pan
Shoals. He said he had already run
aground twice and requested assis

River. Arndt said.
Because the situation was deemed
not to be an emergency, the station
advised the captain to set an anchor
and issued a MARB to request help
from a commercial salvor. Mean

The Coast Guard boat arrived and

to Buoy #4 in the Cape Fear River.
Saturday at about 9:45 a.m., the
station was called by a passing ves
sel reporting a capsized boat and
three persons in the water near
Caswell Beach Pier. The 21 -footer
was launched and arrived at the
scene to find that the all three had
been picked up by a passing boater.
The Coast Guard boat righted the
overturned vessel and towed it out
of the shipping lanes, where it was
deemed to be a hazard to navigation.
