            A Kodiak based Jayhawk helicopter crew and two Good Samaritan vessels came to the rescue of a fishing boat near Cordova on Monday, as the Copper River salmon fishery got underway.

            The 32-foot fishing vessel Divalu began taking on water Monday afternoon in the Copper River Flats 22 miles south of Cordova.

            Coast Guard received a mayday call on VHF radio at 4:48 p.m. from skipper Leo Americus of the fishing vessel Divalu. 

             The Coast Guard immediately issued an urgent marine information broadcast requesting nearby boaters to assist if possible. Two responded to the request for help, the fishing vessel Alpine and an unidentified boat.

               Meanwhile the Coast Guard launched an MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter that is normally based at Air Station Kodiak, but is forward deployed to Cordova for the summer fisheries.

               The Jayhawk arrived on scene at roughly 5:35 p.m. to find 22 mph winds and six foot seas. The crew lowered a rescue swimmer and a dewatering pump and was able to control the flooding and pump out the Divalu.

               The Divalu sailed to Cordova under its own power, escorted by the helicopter and the two Good Samaritans.

               The Coast Guard says no pollution or injuries were reported from this incident.

            The Alaska Legislature adjourned from its special session suddenly over the weekend, which forced the state senate to accept the state house's version of the capital budget without benefit of a conference committee to hammer out differences. Senate President Gary Stevens of Kodiak said the Senate could have rejected the House budget, but that only would have meant another special session and a delay in getting money to much needed capital projects around the state as construction season gets underway.

            One of the many special programs and tours set up for cruise ship passengers this year is a new harbor tour conducted by the Kodiak Maritime Museum.

             The tour is an outgrowth of the museum's informational kiosks posted around the boat harbor.

            Ken Reinke is a member of the maritime museum's board of directors and was a volunteer tour guide for last Saturday's cruise ship visit.

            He said they're still working out the kinks, but for the first tour, it went very well.
