            The Coast Guard is warning mariners on the west side of Kodiak Island to be on the look out for a partially-submerged fishing boat that went down Sunday.

            An Air Station Kodiak Jayhawk crew rescued five crew members from the vessel Scandia more than 70 miles west of Kodiak City Sunday afternoon.

            The Coast Guard received a call at 11:35 a.m. that the 56-foot fishing vessel was taking on water and the crew was unable to keep up with the rate of flooding. As a result, the crew donned survival suits, deployed a 17-foot skiff and abandoned ship.

            All five crewmembers of the Scandia were hoisted from the skiff at 1:23 p.m. and safely delivered back to Kodiak. There were no injuries or medical concerns reported by the crew.

            Sector Anchorage watch-stander Michael McCandless said the crew of the Scandia was well-prepared, which was vital in their successful rescue.

            The fishing vessel was reportedly caring 1,200 gallons of diesel and 80 gallons of lube oil, however, there have been no reports of pollution at this time.

            The vessel remains partially submerged more than 70 miles west of Kodiak City. The Coast Guard is conducting radio broadcasts encouraging all boaters the keep a sharp lookout and use caution while transiting the area.
