The U.S Coast Guard has successfully towed the disabled fishing boat Endorphin back to port after a good Samaritan boat crew found the vessel adrift and without power or food on Friday.
The Endorphin, which is homeported in Montauk, was at sea for eight days when the good Samaritans came across it Friday.
The good Samaritans stayed with the disabled boat and kept the line of communication open with the Coast Guard. The Coast Guard airdropped food, water and a radio to Endorphin by helicopter, and Coast Guard Cutter Tahoma from Kittery, Maine, got to the boat’s area, 86 miles southeast of Montauk, on Friday night.
“The seas subsided from 12-15 feet to 2-4 feet making conditions favorable to take the Endorphin in tow,” the Coast Guard stated. A rescue boatcrew relieved Tahoma and took it the rest of the way to Montauk.
