St. Nicholas Safe After USCG Help

Jay Barrett/KMXT

The fishing vessel Saint Nicholas made it safely back into port Friday evening after it began taking on water about 60 miles southeast of Kodiak earlier in the day.

On Friday morning the Coast Guard received a call from the Saint Nicholas’ crew reporting that their pumps could not keep up with the flooding. A Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Kodiak responded and lowered a dewatering pump to the Saint Nicholas, which was able to control the flooding and proceed to port.
