Stranded boat to be recovered at high tide

Friday, May 20, 2011

A vessel salvage company will recover a boat that ran aground near San Pablo Bay Thursday night once the tide rises later Friday afternoon, a U.S. Coast Guard dispatcher said.

The San Rafael Fire Department responded this morning to the sailboat when its occupant reported he was in distress, officials said.

The fire department checked on the boater's well-being, but the water was too shallow for the Coast Guard to assist, the dispatcher said.

Once high tide rolls in around 4:30 p.m., the private company will pull the boat free, the dispatcher said.
