Man Overboard Off Juneau

Richard B. Boyce, 63, of Haines, AK, fell overboard early the morning of July 4, apparently while attempting to clear the propeller of his boat, 39-foot F/V ELEANOR S, of some fishing gear. ELEANOR S was located near Mab Island, about 25 miles north of Juneau at the time.

At around 5:00 a.m., the Coast Guard received a call that Mr. Boyce had gone overboard; he was reported to have been wearing rain gear, but no flotation device. The Coast Guard deployed boat and helicopter crews for a search of the area. The search covered over 60 square miles, with help from Good Samaritans, before being called off the next morning.
