Fishing Vessel Capsizes on Tillamook Bar; Two Crewmen Rescued

The Coast Guard has reported a 54-foot fishing vessel, DOUBLE EAGLE, capsized Sunday while crossing Oregon's Tillamook Bar. At 5:30 p.m. the vessel had contacted the Coast Guard to advise they intended to cross the Bar. The Coast Guard dispatched two motor life boats to the bar as a precautionary measure. While crossing the Bar, the DOUBLE EAGLE capsized. The two crewmen were both wearing life vests and were rescued from the water by one of the motor life boats. No injuries are known at this time. The Tillamook Bar is well known to be a dangerous crossing in adverse weather conditions.
