Alaska State Troopers assist 4 mariners after fishing boat begins taking on water


DILLINGHAM, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers got to the Just In Time just in time.

The Coast Guard says it received a report from four mariners aboard the 32-foot-fishing vessel Just In Time that they were taking on water near Dillingham on Friday. Two Alaska State Trooper patrol vessels were nearby and responded, providing a dewatering pump and a damage control kit to patch a hole.

The troopers then escorted the vessel back to Dillingham.
