The Coast Guard rescued four boaters after their 27-foot recreational vessel Cathy Gail washed up against the A Jetty at Cape Disappointment, Wash., Friday. The Coast Guard received the report at 12:41 p.m., from a good Samaritan who was unable to assist the Cathy Gail due to its location. A 25-foot response boat crew and a 47-foot motor lifeboat crew from Station Cape Disappointment responded and arrived on scene at 12:54 p.m. The response boat crew took the Cathy Gail, with the four members onboard, in tow away from the rocks and toward the Ilwaco Pier in Ilwaco, Wash. While in tow the Cathy Gail began taking on water; however, the flooding was contained using a dewatering pump that was transferred onboard from the response boat. At 2:14 p.m., the response boat crew, the Cathy Gail and its crew arrived safely at the Ilwaco Pier. No injuries were reported. The cause of the mishap has not been determined pending investigation.
