Thursday, January 9, 2020

A small Coast Guard boat capsized in the Columbia River after being hit by a large wake Saturday morning.

The four crew members were rescued by the Columbia Bar Pilot vessel Connor Foss just off Pier 39 and no one was injured, according to the Coast Guard.

The 25-foot vessel was an Aids to Navigation boat, in the river to maintain buoys and assist other boaters in finding the navigation channel.

The Clatsop County Sheriff’s Marine Patrol towed the capsized boat to the pier.
