Coast Guard answered a distress call on November 30 from the STEVE C, a fishing vessel holding around 22 tons of catch.The STEVE C had lost steering in bad weather about 21 miles northwest of Clatsop Spit, Oregon. Coast Guard reached the STEVE C by 52-foot motor lifeboat TRIUMPH early that afternoon and, through 14-18 foot swells, towed the disabled vessel across the Columbia River bar to Cape Disappointment shortly after midnight.
