Fishing vessel runs aground in Southeast Alaska

The U.S. Coast Guard says it rescued a man today after his 47-foot fishing vessel beached near Cape Fairweather, about 10 miles north of Lituya Bay. A helicopter landed near the F/V West Bank and collected the man, the Coast Guard said. The cause of the grounding was under investigation. USCG photo

Strangest thing not getting on Channel 16 at the time. Maybe a little more to the story....

I would think so too.

I notice that the stabies ripped off and nobody even threw the anchor over.

Pretty close to the woods and no shore line either.
