The two person crew of the 38-foot fishing boat More Misery notified authorities around noon that they were taking on water and needed help.

A boat crew from Coast Guard Station Castle Hill arrived on scene and successfully transferred the two fisherman aboard.

Coast Guard crews also dewatered the More Misery, and safely towed it back to Newport.
