Boat res­cue oc­curs off Har­bourville

Valley Journal Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

One fish­ing boat cap­tain came to the res­cue of an­other on May 3 off the Fundy shore.

The Krista M with Josh Banks and his fa­ther aboard were fish­ing for hal­ibut when they ran out of fuel. The boat was an­chored, but bobbed around for sev­eral hours un­til the tide was high. Then an­other lo­cal cap­tain, Vance Dixon in the Dakota & Boys, was able to go out and pull the Krista M into the wharf at Har­bourville.

“It was quite a day,” said Josh’s mother, Holly, not­ing, “They’re go­ing out again to­mor­row. It is a lifestyle.”

A for­mer fisher her­self, she added that while wait­ing for a tow, they ob­served a great white shark in the Bay of Fundy.
