Lady Nancy Distress, All Safe

On December 16, the crew of 41-foot F/V LADY NANCY sent out a distress call to the Coast Guard, indicating they were taking on water. The starboard rail submerged after a wave caused crab pots to shift. The crew of four called for help, donned immersion suits, and jettisoned the crab pots to restore stability. The Coast Guard escorted LADY NANCY safely back to port.

The Coast Guard noted that LADY NANCY has a current Commercial Fishing Vessel Safety Exam decal, her captain and another crewmember had taken a safety course in 2008, and her crew had held a safety drill the week prior to this incident and knew what to do when their vessel lost stability.
