Canadian Coast Guard personnel responded to Confederation Basin over the long weekend to assist a 19-foot vessel reporting engine troubles.
The boat with two occupants was hitting the Basin’s outer break wall and had water flooding over the stern before being towed away by a Coast Guard fast rescue craft.
The Coast Guard was able to successfully dewater the vessel and tow it to safety along with its uninjured occupants.
The 47-foot Coast Guard vessel CCGS Cape Hearne (pictured top) was also out all night Sunday as part of a search and rescue case involving a man on a sailboat around Prince Edward County.
He received assistance and was reported to be in good condition.
