The 2 men on board the 40-foot wooden sea scallop boat Probable Cause contacted the Coast Guard that the vessel had water ingress and was in need of assistance. The Probable Cause was off Provincetown, Massachusetts, when the vessel began to flood. The Coast Guard deployed the 47-foot motor lifeboat and a Jayhawk helicopter to the stricten Probable Cause. The lifeboat was able to tow the Probable Cause back to port while the helicopter did an aerial inspection for any pollution being released. While tied to the pier, the crew of the Probable Cause were able to make temporary repairs to the leak. No reports of injuries or pollution being released.
