Video: The dewatering of the fishing vessel Blue Diamond 90 miles east of Atlantic City, N.J., from the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Sailfish.
BMC Scott Gross: Coast Guard Cutter Sailfish showed up on scene of the fishing vessel Blue Diamond. It was taking on water just as they lost their engines. Our rescue assistance team was able to affect a box patch utilizing plugs and wedges and a pillow we actually used to plug the hole. A good team effort all around.
