Sinking trawler safely pulled from Port Townsend Bay

Quick thinking and fast action helped to prevent a sinking trawler from turning into something worse. “Galaxy,” a 38-foot wooden fishing vessel, began taking on water about one nautical mile off of Boat Haven Marina around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29. The owner of the boat, who was the only one aboard, called 911 and launched Coast Guard Station Port Angeles and East Jefferson Fire Rescue into action. Luckily, the owner had already contacted a commercial salvage operation, which was able to bring the boat into the marina where it was removed from the water Thursday evening. >click to read< 10:24
