BOSTON — Coast Guard rescue crews rescued two fishermen from a grounded vessel near Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., Thursday at approximately 6 a.m. Watchstanders from Sector Southeastern New England received notification, via VFH channel 16 at approximately 5 a.m., that the 44-foot lobster vessel Bill B II was taking on water and the crew ran the vessel aground. An MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter rescue rew from Air Station Cape Cod and a Station Menemsha 47-foot Motor Life boat crew were launched. The helicopter crew safely hoisted the fishermen from the grounded vessel. No injuries were reported. No pollution has been reported. A salvage plan is being coordinated by the Bill B II. "When a vessel is in distress it poses a difficult rescue mission, but this case demonstrates the level of capabilities our assets an crews have to successfully complete the mission," said Lt. Bryan Swintek, Sector Southeastern New England commander center chief.
