580406A commercial fishing vessel has been rescued by the Coast Guard and is safely back in Montauk, having survived rough weather and high seas after it went “adrift and without power” on Friday. After their 58-foot boat, the Endorphin, was moored about 9 Saturday night, three weary Montauk fishermen said they were ready for a hot shower and a glass of wine. Crew member Christopher Fallon, 26, said on Friday — which happened to be the 13th — after eight days at sea, the commercial fishing boat’s main engine started seizing up. The crew was headed back to port when the engine died and they lost their generator. more@newsday   11:40
