Coast Guard aids charter boat off Hatteras Inlet

Coast Guard helicopter and boat crews helped eight people on a charter boat as it was taking on water about 30 miles southeast of Hatteras Inlet Thursday.

The crew of the fishing boat Runaway called Coast Guard Sector North Carolina at 12:21 p.m., reporting that the Good Times, a 44-foot white boat with eight people aboard, was taking on water.

An Air Station Elizabeth City MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew dropped off their rescue swimmer and a dewatering pump to help get flooding under control. Shortly after the helicopter arrived, a Station Hatteras Inlet 47-foot Motor Lifeboat crew arrived to assist and ensure they made it back safely.

The 47-foot boat crew followed them to Hatteras Inlet, where the station’s 24-foot shallow water boat escorted them to Scott Boatyard in Buxton to get hauled out.
