F/V ALLISON C Floods Off Coast of Southern California - Crew Rescued

On September 20, the Coast Guard and the Air National Guard concerted their efforts to rescue three fishermen aboard 85-foot F/V ALLISON C. The crew called the Coast Guard for help, saying they were taking on water, possibly from a hole in the bottom of the boat, and that they were unable to control the flooding. They were located about 125 nautical miles southwest of Point Piedras Blancas, California, at the time.

The Coast Guard deployed a helicopter, which dropped three pumps, a lift raft, and hand held radios to the ALLISON C crew. They requested help from the Air National Guard, which responded with their helicopter to hoist the fishermen from the life raft they'd climbed into and take them to Moffett Federal Airfield. They were then transferred for medical attention. No injuries were reported.

There are no reports as yet whether ALLISON C eventually sunk or was towed.
