The boat: the Snow Plow.
The situation: She was taking on water. Three men aboard the Snow Plow were about to be dunked in the deep.
The remedy: the U. S. Coast Guard.
On Saturday, the Coast Guard received a signal around 10:30 a.m. from a St. Petersburg sector watchstander that a distress call had come in to marine band radio. Three people about the 22-foot Snow Plow said the boat was taking on water.
The Coast Guard’s Sand Key station sent its 45-foot response boat to the scene, pumped out the gathering water, and escorted the crew to the Belleair Causeway Boat Ramp.
There were no reported injuries.
