    Coast Guard assists boater taking on water near Golden Gate Bridge

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Coast Guard assisted a mariner aboard a 32-foot sailing vessel after he reportedly struck Duxbury Reef and the sailboat began taking on water near the Golden Gate Bridge, Wednesday.

    The man's son called Coast Guard Station Golden Gate watchstanders at 3:59 p.m., reporting that his father struck the reef and needed help.

    A Coast Guard Station Golden Gate 47-foot Motor Lifeboat crew launched at 4:07 p.m., and assisted the man with dewatering using a portable dewatering pump.

    The motor lifeboat crew then towed the sailing vessel to Travis Marina in Horseshoe Bay.

    "We caution mariners to know where the buoys are and what they mean," said Petty Officer 2nd Class Matthew Whitlow, an officer of the day at Coast Guard Station Golden Gate. "They mark shoal areas to keep boaters out of dangerous waters."

    There were no reports of pollution.
