Coast Guard Saves the Day!



Early this morning, vandals set two Vista Fleet boats adrift in the harbor.  The Coast Guard was scrambled and managed to head off one of the boats just as the 730ft John D. Leitch was passing through the Duluth Shipping Canal.

 You can read more about the incident at the Duluth News Tribune.

    1. The Queen was for sure rescued. It looks like the Star is still adrift at the end of the video. Hard to tell.

  8. A beautiful sunrise illuminates an insane criminal act.
    So glad no one was hurt, no damage to vessels.
    Our Coast Guard is worth every penny, as always.
