Seven individuals had been rescued on Monday after a 180-foot boat was disabled in the Gulf of Mexico about 150 miles toward the southwest of Naples, per information from the US Coast Guard.
A crew member of the rescue team on the cutter Shrike reached the scene and transferred about seven on the Abshire Tide to the Shrike.
The Coast Guard received an urgent radio beacon’s distress signal around Sunday afternoon.
Coast Guard’s HC-130 Hercules aircraft from Clearwater discovered the vessel. It then dropped a radio to the individuals on the vessel to establish communications.
The vessel, an Offshore Tug/Supply Ship, was left adrift. The vessel owners are currently arranging for a commercial salvage, the Coast Guard reported.
No one suffered any injuries.
