Labrador crew maintain their smiles despite heavily damaged Arctic vessel

The crew of a fishing vessel that ran into trouble in the Davis Strait is being praised for its quick thinking. “There was a few tense moments definitely on the ship,” said Maj. Rhonda Stephens of the Joint Rescue Coordination Centre in Halifax.  The F/V Saputi was fishing for turbot Sunday night when it ran into a piece of ice and began taking on water. Some of the 30 crew members are from Labrador. A Danish Coast Guard ship was able to reach the Saputi and the crew are now safe in Nuuk, Greenland. Photo’s, read the article here 09:40
