Coast Guard assists three boaters near Hobucken, NC
Monday, July 31, 2017 @ 17:24:36 EDT

 

WILMINGTON, N.C. — The Coast Guard assisted three passengers after their boat ran aground in Mouse Harbor near Hobucken Sunday.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector North Carolina in Wilmington received a report around 3 p.m. that a 16-foot pleasure craft with one adult and two children aboard had run aground after taking on water due to high winds and waves.

A 24-foot Special Purpose Craft–Shallow Water crew from Station Hobucken launched around 4:20 p.m. to assist the passengers.

The crew arrived on scene, took the passengers on board and transferred them to Oyster Creek boat ramp in Swan Quarter.

The boat owner is making arrangements to salvage the vessel Monday or Tuesday.

“To ensure safety on the water, boaters should always check the local weather for the area they are operating in,” said Chief Petty Officer Nathan Jones, officer-in-charge at Station Hobucken. “This goes hand in hand with having the required safety equipment for their type and size of vessel. Luckily in this situation, life jackets were worn by all three passengers."
