HOUSTON — The crew of a sailboat found and helped tow a disabled boat and two people to safety Saturday off Freeport.

The sailboat crew didn’t have enough fuel to tow them all the way to shore and notified the Coast Guard before getting them to an oil platform, about 20 miles offshore, to tie off.

A boatcrew from Coast Guard Station Freeport met them at the platform and towed them to Bridge Bait marina in Freeport.
