ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. — The Coast Guard helped dewater a yacht that had run aground and was taking on water in the Pasquotank River near Elizabeth City, Sunday.

A crew member aboard the 43-foot motor boat Eager Miss contacted Sector North Carolina watchstanders at approximately 4 p.m. to report the vessel carrying six adults and one child had run aground and was taking on water.

Station Elizabeth City diverted a 29-foot Response Boat–Small (RB-S) crew that was already underway to assist. 

Once on scene, the RB-S crew sent two crewmembers aboard with a pump to keep up with the flow of water. 

The Coast Guard crew remained on scene until a commercial towing vessel arrived. The yacht, with passengers aboard, was then towed to The Pelican Marina in Elizabeth City.

“This case was a prime example how being prepared is so important,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class Frederick Lamm, a crew member from Station Elizabeth City who responded to the case. “Knowing the draft of your vessel and having accurate waterway charts can help prevent getting into a dangerous situation.”

    “When the draft of your vessel exceeds the depth of water, you are most definitely aground.”
