The 60 foot long fishing vessel Endeavor suffered water ingress near Yaquina Bay, Oregon.  The fishing vessel had been struck by a large swell the night before which caused a leak in the vessel.  The crew had discovered flooding in the engine room and contacted the Coast Guard requesting assistance.  The Coast Guard dispatched the 47-foot long Motor Life Boat to the scene.  The Coast Guard was able to pass two dewatering pumps to the fishing vessel.   With the pumps, the flooding was brought under control.  The Motor Life Boat then escorted the Endeavor back to port.  No reports of injuries or pollution released.
