Masonic pumps water, makes for Hoonah

The fishing vessel Masonic called for help today near the Fairweather Grounds in the Gulf of Alaska.

The U.S. Coast Guard says the four-person crew reported they were taking on water and might need an extra pump to keep up with the flooding.

The good Samaritan vessel Myra and a Sitka-based Coast Guard helicopter arrived to help the Masonic with dewatering.

The 70-foot boat was making way to protected waters in Cross Sound, and was expected to arrive Thursday morning in port at Hoonah.

The Masonic is homeported in Sitka.

Word from Hoonah is that the bilge pump outlet had frozen over.
All is well now.
