4 men rescued from sinking F/V Sea Star speak out

Four people were rescued from a sinking boat about 18 miles off the coast of Martha’s Vineyard Wednesday night, according to the Coast Guard. A Coast Guard aircrew airlifted four fishermen into a helicopter around 6:20 p.m. Captain Andrew Arnett told NBC 10 News he was sleeping when his crew members awoke him to news that the boat was about to sink. “No longer than 30 seconds after I got up, we’d taken a wave over the stern,” Arnett said. The four fishermen — Arnett, Roberto Fredette, Brandon McCrave and Breck Holdredge — were returning from a five-day trip crab fishing when the boat began taking on water. >click to read< 08:07
