In the harbor today due to high winds. A distress call to the Coast Guard came over about noon from a fishing vessel taking on water. The vessel location was where many boats are normally fishing, but are not today due to poor weather. When the CG answered the call, the captain, who both Sara and I think we must know because his voice is so familiar, said he was taking on water and heading for shore. The CG sent up a hilo to assist, which was 2 hours out.
