Busy Weekend for Kodiak-Based USCG

Jay Barrett/KMXT

Saturday morning crewmen from the Cutter Munro assisted the 33-foot fishing vessel Sea Venture, which was disabled with two men on board in Chrome Bay, near the mouth of Cook Inlet. The Sea Venture couldn’t be fixed and the water was too shallow for the Munro to establish a tow, so Coast Guard auxiliary crews from Homer and Anchorage respnded to tow the boat to Homer.

On Sunday, an Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew forward-deployed to Cordova medevaced a 63-year-old woman from the cruise ship Norwegian Sun near Yakutat.

The aircrew hoisted the woman, who was suffering from severe absominal pain, and safely transported her to Cordova Community Medical Center.

Weather on scene both days was reported as light and variable winds and calm seas.
