Coast Guard Gloucester to the Rescue! 03/30/2015

Coast Guard Gloucester to the Rescue! 03/30/2015

BOSTON — Coast Guard search and rescue crews from Station Gloucester, Air Station Cape Cod and the Coast Guard Cutter Ocracoke rescued nine crewmembers from the Canadian tall ship Liana’s Ransom 58 miles east of Gloucester, Monday.

Watchstanders at the Sector Boston Command Center received notification at 12:35 a.m. that the vessel’s engines were disabled and its sails were wrapped around the mast.

As the weather deteriorated, and seas reached nearly 10 feet, Sector Boston launched two 47-foot motor lifeboat crews from Station Gloucester to tow the vessel back to Gloucester. Once on scene, the boat crews connected the tow, but the rough sea conditions caused the tow line to break.

The motor lifeboats crews directed the crew of Liana’s Ransom to don immersion suits and to prepare to abandon ship about 30 miles east of Gloucester and a Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk Helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod was diverted to assist.

The nine passengers were transferred from Liana’s Ransom to the Coast Guard motor lifeboats. One man suffered a head injury when leaping from Liana’s Ransom and was airlifted to Massachusetts General Hospital by the Jayhawk helicopter crew.

The Station Gloucester crews returned to the station with the eight remaining crewmembers. A locator beacon was left on Liana’s Ransom for tracking and the Coast Guard Cutter Ocracoke is en-route to evaluate towing the vessel to port.

“It was fortunate for the crew of the vessel that the owner reached out to us,” said Jay Woodhead, the command duty officer at Sector Boston’s Command Center. He said with winds gusting to 30 knots, it was unsafe for them to stay aboard.

Coast Guard medevacs fisherman near Cape Cod

Posted: 13 Mar 2015 07:18 AM PDT

Jayhawk training flightBOSTON – Search and rescue crews from Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod, Massachusetts, medically evacuated a man from a fishing boat 110 miles east of Cape Cod, Friday.

Watchstanders at the Coast Guard Sector Boston Command Center received an urgent call from the fishing vessel Capt Joe stating that a 62-year-old crewman aboard was suffering from severe abdominal pain.

Considering the potential severity of the man’s condition and the distance from land, Sector Boston conferred with the 1st District Command Center who initiated the medevac.

Air Station Cape Cod was directed to launch two air crews, one aboard an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter to conduct the hoist, another aboard an HC-144A Ocean Sentry aircraft to provide communication and support coverage.

Despite winds gusting to 40-knots and seas reaching 10-15 feet, the Jayhawk crew safely hoisted the man aboard and transferred him to Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

“The on-scene conditions were challenging,” said Lt. Preston Hieb, the command duty officer at the Sector Boston Command Center. “Our crews train in all weather, and we’re always to respond,” he said.

What colors do you see?

In the movie Pearl Earring the artist Vermeer asked his maid who was modeling for him. “Look at the clouds what colors do you see?”
She replied “white” he told her to squint and look again. She saw many colors then.
