  • So, what did it finally take to refloat the grounded fishing boat on from Nye Beach in Oregon? The removal of all fuel onboard. Once it was dislodged from ground, it was towed to shore by a private tug. Luckily, the five tons of fish onboard didn’t go to waste since the owner was able to sell it to the cannery.

  1. Hello. Nice web site. I served in the
    CG during the Viet Nam era aboard the
    CGC Campbell, Mackanac, and did some
    Armed Forces Police at base ST. George and Port Athority. I am now
    a DAV. I was hurt on training runs
    preparing us for Viet Nam. Love the
    CG and have several nephew who are
    serving. One in Kuwait. God bless
    the Guard and all her brave sailors.
