Nice save

The U.S. Coast Guard safely airlifted the three-man crew of the fishing vessel Ruffian to Whittier this morning after the boat began taking on water north of Latouche Island in Prince William Sound. The crew, which reportedly was fishing for Pacific cod and skate, beached the boat on purpose to keep it from sinking. The Ruffian is a 42-footer out of Homer. USCG photo
