F/V Sylvia

The setting is Yaquina Bay in Newport on the Oregon Coast. I was able to capture the F/V (Fishing Vessel) Sylvia all by herself.

This is sort of an interesting story. In February of 2014, the F/V (Fishing Vessel) Sylvia was at sea and reported taking on water, that her pumps could not stay ahead of the leak and the Coast Guard went to the rescue.

However, the crew of the Sylvia were able to fire up an additional pump which helped the situation immensely. The Coast Guard installed yet another pump, got the water level down and patched the leak. The boat made it back to port safely!
