F/V L&M Runs Aground at Sapelo Island, Georgia

The master of 49-foot shrimp boat L&M sent out a maritime distress call around 4:30 a.m. on April 15. Coast Guard Air Station Savannah deployed a helicopter crew, who located L&M grounded on her starboard side in the waters just off Sapelo Island. The two L&M crewmembers were airlifted to safety with no reports of injury.

Sapelo Island lies about thirty minutes by boat from the coast and is mainly a state-protected island used as a research reserve and for research-associated tourism. Reportedly, there is no pollution detected, and commercial salvage of L&M is being arranged by her owner.
