Late the afternoon of January 7, the Boston Coast Guard received an EPIRB signal from Rhode Island based 55-foot F/V ELIZABETH HELEN. A Coast Guard motor life boat went in search and located the two-person crew in their life raft within an hour, thanks to the crew setting off a red flare. No injuries are reported, although 900 gallons of diesel were on board the capsized and sinking vessel.
