Everyone in the boat is okay and have life jackets. 25′ boat, engine trouble…just need a tow back to the dock. Just yesterday local fire-rescue crews were practicing for such rescues.
Fire-Rescue command post is up on Waziyata. Those aboard the boat in distress have dropped an anchor, so they’re staying put until they can be towed back to the port upriver.
Boat needs more than gas. They’re going to have to be towed back to the port docks.
Fire-Rescue boat is in the water, headed for the stuck boat.
Should be hooking up to the stranded boat anytime. Then haul it back to the port docks.
Fire-Rescue boat has pulled the disabled boat to the Alsea Bay port docks. Tied up safely at the port.
