The fishing vessel Masonic called for help today near the Fairweather Grounds in the Gulf of Alaska.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the four-person crew reported they were taking on water and might need an extra pump to keep up with the flooding.
The good Samaritan vessel Myra and a Sitka-based Coast Guard helicopter arrived to help the Masonic with dewatering.
The 70-foot boat was making way to protected waters in Cross Sound, and was expected to arrive Thursday morning in port at Hoonah.
The Masonic is homeported in Sitka.
