COOS BAY, Ore. — A 47-Foot Motor Lifeboat crew from Coast Guard Station Coos Bay assisted the fishing vessel Car Tanya, Sunday evening.

The boat crew successfully dewatered and towed the 58-foot fishing vessel 13 miles back to Coos Bay.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector North Bend received a request for assistance from the mariners aboard the vessel at 5:42 p.m., reporting the vessel was taking on water and losing power.

A Coast Guard Air Station North Bend aircrew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter initially responded but returned to base after the Coos Bay boat crew was able to safely assist the vessel.

The boat crew delivered a pump to the fishing vessel and provided escort until the vessel lost power.

The crew then towed the vessel to the bar and requested another Station Coos Bay asset bring a second dewatering pump. During the tow, the Car Tanya crew lost radio communications and the Coast Guard crew provided them with a handheld radio.

At approximately 10 p.m., the boat crew moored up the fishing vessel in Coos Bay and conducted a post-Search and Rescue boarding, resulting in a termination order due to multiple discrepancies found aboard the vessel.

A Captain of the Port order was issued to the vessel due to deteriorated conditions and will be required to stay in port until repairs are made.
