Coast Guard Rescue Man in Duct Tape Boat


The U.S. Coast Guard in Juneau, Alaska, were called to rescue a man  whose homemade, duct-taped water craft was sinking. The  not-so-innovative sailor was in route to Point Bishop in an inflatable  boat when the problem arose. Thankfully, the man and his dog were  rescued and transported to safety.

"I noticed the craft in the channel and I could tell the man was not  wearing a life jacket and the craft was not safe," says Lt. Joseph Schlosser. "I contacted the sector command center and the Station's smallboat crew responded quickly and helped the man to safety."
