At 11:15 a.m. crew members for Coast Guard Station East Moriches, aboard a 29-foot response boat, arrived at the fishing boat to find the three people aboard the vessel, wearing life jackets.

The Coast Guard brought the three people onto the response boat and towed the disabled boat, which was taken to a commercial salvage company at 11:40 a.m., the Coast Guard said.
