The Coast Guard assisted six people aboard a vessel taking on water 12 miles east of Tybee Island, Friday.

A Coast Guard Station Tybee Island 45-foot Response Boat–Medium crew arrived on scene and used a P6 pump to dewater the Double 6, a 35-foot boat.

Once the RB-M crew dewatered the boat, a commercial salvage company towed the vessel with the small boat crew escorting them to Thunderbolt marina.

Coast Guard Sector Charleston command center watchstanders received a call at 10:42 a.m. via VHF Channel 16 from the Double 6’s crew stating they were taking on water. Watchstanders issued an Urgent Marine Information Broadcast and directed the launch of a Station Tybee Island RB-M crew.
