JUNEAU - The Coast Guard has delivered two dewatering pumps to a fishing vessel taking on water.

The pumps were delivered Monday morning to the Jamie Marie, located about 45 miles west of Kodiak.

Two crew members onboard the 50-foot vessel issued the call for assistance.

A Coast Guard helicopter made the delivery to the commercial seiner, and a Good Samaritan crew on the vessel Halcyon responded with aid to the Jamie Marie.

The crew reported the water was removed from Jamie Marie, and the boat was expected back at its home port in Kodiak Monday afternoon.
