Also happy that the crab they caught are too!

Several people aboared a small crab boat were stranded for a while in Alsea Bay as their boat’s motor stopped running. They began hollering for help and waving their arms. They attracted the attention of a number of people on the beach and three men passing by in a small outboard.

Those aboard the outboard tried to pull them back to the marina, but for some reason progress was too slow, so someone called for help from Central Coast Fire Rescue.

CCFR was on scene within a few minutes and launched their large rescue Zodiac. They met up with the stranded boat in the middle of the bay and tied the two craft together. Slowly the Zodiac, with the crab boat in tow, headed for the marina. Within five minutes everyone was safe back on the dock happy to be back on shore along with all the great crab they caught.

CCFR personnel noted that all those aboard the stranded boat were wearing life jackets. The captain of the boat said a clogged impeller caused his motor to shut down.
