A Coast Guard crew member serves food to 20 passengers rescued by the Coast Guard Cutter Sockeye's crew after the charter fishing vessel Truline began taking on water south of San Clemente Island, Sunday, March 19.

Twenty passengers and five crew members from a charter fishing vessel based in San Pedro were safely returned to shore Sunday, March 19, after the boat struck a submerged object in the ocean and began taking on water off San Clemente Island.

The Coast Guard, the Navy and two Vessel Assist crews helped get the 63-foot charter boat Truline to Newport Beach Shipyard, the Coast Guard said in a statement. The passengers were returned to 22nd Street Landing in San Pedro, where the Saturday night fishing excursion had begun.

There were no reported injuries, the Coast Guard said.

The overnight charter had left San Pedro at around 8:15 p.m. Saturday and the boat was about 60 miles south -- a half-mile south of San Clemente Island -- shortly before 3 a.m. when it struck an unknown object.

“It’s pretty rocky in that area,” Coast Guard Petty Officer Rob Simpson said, although it wasn’t known what the vessel hit.

Informed that the vessel was taking on water, the Coast Guard’s San Diego sector dispatched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter, a 45-foot response boat and the Coast Guard cutter Sockeye, authorities said. A Navy ship operating in the area was diverted to the scene.

The Navy crew, arriving at 4:30 a.m., began to de-water the Truline and the Sockeye, arriving at 7 a.m., took over, able to keep up with the flooding while the Truline was escorted to Newport Beach, the statement said. Vessel Assist crews from Catalina Island and San Pedro assisted.

“We were able to keep up with the flooding,” Simpson said.

At 8:30 a.m. the 20 passengers were transferred to the Sockeye, with five crew remaining on the Truline, the Coast Guard said. At 1:30 p.m. the Sockeye delivered the passengers to San Pedro and at 4:45 the Truline “was safely moored at the Newport Beach Shipyard,” the Coast Guard reported.

“The good thing is, they were able to float her back into the harbor,” said Alex Berlin, a reservations agent for the charters. “Everyone was safely dropped off by the Coast Guard ship.”

He said the plan is to return Truline to service once repairs are completed. “That’s what we are hoping for,” he said.

    PS Not sure they hit anything maybe. Word around town is the
    rudder fell out after shaft broke leaving the bushing hole wide open
    and leaking...just FYI. Unless the rudder hit something. News at 11...LOL

    I was just thinking the other day alot of these boats are getting pretty old but no one can afford to replace them,its a catch 22,pay your mortgage or fix/maintenance the boat sadly.Glad everyone is well and it sounds like the crew did a good job keeping all aboard safe.

    I saw a big fat log at 3 miles from Dana Point a week or so ago. No doubt there's lots of future bad stories floating around out there right now.

    I think their gear, etc. Was the LAST THING ON THE COAST GUARDS AND PASSENGERS MIND.

    I know but I'm just curious of the Idea or a Scene of a Coast Guard Boat Full of Anglers with their Fishing Rods as we use to see Pictures on Sport Boats but Never on a Coast Guard Boat much more on a Navy Ship with Anglers...

    With all the rain, flooding in all the watersheds, there will be junk, some of it huge and dangerous, all over the place, for a while. Not just the kind that can punch a hole in a hull, but tear running gear off, trash rudders and ruin days.

    I thought some of those navy boats do 30knts

    It's not AAA roadside assistance. There is a lot of ocean out there. The Cost Guard and Navy has several other responsibilities, in addition to.

    Also, I am sure the response was coordinated with other assets in the area, such as other pleasure craft (hence Pan Pans and Maydays on Ch. 16)based on who was where and why, and what the skipper was relaying regarding the severity of the damage.

    In the end, its on us as operators to be safe in the first place. I am just glad they are out there when it all goes south. No one ended up in the water or dead.
