WILMINGTON, N.C. — The Coast Guard is responding Sunday to a submerged boat in Currituck Sound.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector North Carolina received a call at about 12:34 p.m. from the operator of a 52-foot pleasure craft Cheryl Lynn out of Coinjock that began taking on water near Tulls Bay Marker 79 in Currituck Sound.

Sector North Carolina personnel issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast and launched a 29-foot Response Boat-Small crew from Station Elizabeth City.

Cheryl Lynn’s operator was able to run the vessel soft aground approximately 400 feet outside the navigable waterway in about four feet of water in North Landing River, southeast of Tulls Bay entrance and west of Mackay Island National Wildlife Refuge.

A good Samaritan arrived on scene to a partially submerged Cheryl Lynn and took the two passengers aboard.

The Coast Guard response boat crew arrived on scene and gathered information.

Approximately 800 gallons of diesel fuel remain aboard Cheryl Lynn, and the owner contracted TowBoatUS to salvage the vessel.

Coast Guard Marine Safety Detachment Nags Head personnel will monitor the salvage operation.
