  • Coasties Pluck Jon Boat Driver Out Of Racoon Strait

    SAN FRANCISCO — The Coast Guard rescued a man near Bluff Point Wednesday morning after his boat capsized in the San Francisco Bay.

    Coast Guard Sector San Francisco watchstanders received a 911 relay at 2:57 a.m. from Marin County Dispatch stating they had a man on the line who was clinging on to his overturned 12-foot aluminum jon boat.

    Coast Guard watchstanders were gathering information on the nature of the man's distress, who said he was drifting toward the Richmond/San Rafael bridge, before the Coast Guard lost communication with the boater.

    Watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station San Francisco MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew at 3:01 a.m. The aircrew arrived on scene at 3:46 a.m. and began their search for the overturned johnboat. The Dolphin crew located the overturned boat at 4:27 a.m., lowered the rescue swimmer, hoisted the boater into the helicopter and returned to Air Station San Francisco.

    The man was reported to be in good condition with no medical concerns.
