The four aboard this boat who were rescue by the Coast Guard Saturday afternoon finally have their boat back. It washed up on the beach overnight in front of the Hallmark Resort Hotel on Elizabeth Street in Newport. It came in upside down which will have to be re-righted before it can be towed off the beach and to a repair facility.
The Coast Guard received a radio call for help from the four who said they were about a mile off the end of the Newport jaws and that their 24 foot pleasure craft was taking on water. The Coast Guard sent out a crew aboard a motor lifeboat and got the four safely back to land.
