BOSTON – The Coast Guard Cutter Escanaba is towing the fishing vessel Grace Marie to Provincetown and plans to arrive around 6 p.m., today.

The Grace Marie, a 65-foot Gloucester-based fishing vessel, was reported to be adrift without engine power on the southeast section of Georges Bank.

The crew of the Escanaba responded to the Grace Marie 150 miles east of Nantucket, Mass., Wednesday June 09, 2010.

The Escanaba arrived on scene just before sunset and quickly took the fishing vessel in tow. The Escanaba plans to tow the Grace Marie about 178 miles to just north of Provincetown, Mass., where they will be relieved by the fishing vessel Christine Elani.

Once the tow is complete, it will have lasted around 21 hours through gale force winds.

The Escanaba is a 270- foot medium endurance cutter homeported in Boston.
