Sector Humboldt Bay does it again! United States Coast Guard release below: 

 

The Coast Guard assisted two Dungeness crab fishermen aboard a 40-foot commercial fishing vessel approximately five miles west of Trinidad, Monday night.

The crew aboard the 100-year-old vessel, Radiant, contacted Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay watchstanders via VHF-FM channel 16 around 11 p.m., reporting that their vessel was experiencing electrical and propulsion issues. 

Sector Humboldt Bay personnel dispatched a Coast Guard Station Humboldt Bay 47-foot Motor Lifeboat crew to the scene to assist the vessel.

The Coast Guard crew placed the Radiant in a side tow around 1 a.m., Tuesday, and embarked on the three-hour transit to Woodley Island Marina in Eureka.

The Radiant was moored at the marina at approximately 5:30 a.m., Tuesday, with no reports of  injuries.
