5 p.m.: The skipper of a 21-foot pleasure craft called the U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River for assistance as the boat was dead in the water and the engine would not start because of low fuel.  There were two adults and four children on board and the craft was drifting approximately one mile off of Mill Beach. A 47-foot motor lifeboat was dispatched and the vessel was towed to the Port of Brookings Harbor.

The crew of a 22-foot pleasure craft contacted the U.S. Coast Guard Station Chetco River by VHF radio noting the boat was  disabled about a mile south of the Chetco River jetty and was drifting toward shore.  A good Samaritan assisted and the station dispatched a 47-foot motor lifeboat to stand by on scene to ensure both vessels crossed into the bar safely.

A 28-foot pleasure craft broke down near the Chetco River South Jetty tip. A 25-foot safe boat was dispatched to tow the vessel back into the Port of Brookings Harbor.
