F/V MOONLIGHT MAID sinks

This past weekend Coast Guard Sector Anchorage received a mayday call from crewmembers of the 110' commercial fishing vessel, the F/V MOONLIGHT MAID. The fishing vessel encountered high winds and 13' seas before when it began taking on water. At the time, the fishing vessel was more than 30 miles south of Resurrection Bay.

A Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak launched and rescued the four fishermen from a life raft at 10:51 p.m. The managed to don their survival suits before abandoning ship. The men were safely transported to Seward at 1:03 a.m. Friday, with no reported injuries.
