Tidewater vessel crews were first responders to two boating emergencies Sept. 9

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

Tidewater vessel crews were the first responders to two separate boating emergencies which resulted in the rescue of four boaters last week. At approximately 1:15 a.m., Todd Takalo, piloting the Tidewater tug Maverick, spotted a flashing white light in the water. Takalo and deck mechanic Ryan Jones navigated 35 mpr winds and 4 foot swells to rescue two tribal fisherman that had been stranded on their capsized vessel for over 45 minutes. In a separate incident, around 7 p.m. on Sept. 9, two recreational boaters were pulled from the water after their boat caught fire and capsized. Captain Greg Majeski on the tug Captain Bob, describes seeing a recreational boat fully engulfed in flames and two people in the water near the burning wreckage. The Captain Bob crew pulled the couple from the water, just as their burning boat slipped beneath the surface of the Snake River. “In addition to providing valuable inland marine transportation service, our boats and crews act as river sentinels keeping watch and responding to on water emergencies throughout the Columbia & Snake River system,” says Bruce Reed, Tidewater’s COO. “Tidewater is dedicated to making the extra effort to go above and beyond to ensure the safety of personnel, the environment and the community in which we operate.”
