Rockland Captain Crewman Rescued at Sea 

Another rescue at sea for the captain and a crew member aboard the Raw Faith sailing vessel, whose home port is Rockland harbor.The 118-foot boat was hand built by George McKay in order to give disabled children and their families a chance to enjoy free sailing adventures.According to the website rawfaithadventures.com, The Raw Faith had left Salem, Massachusetts on Saturday, headed for Bermuda.Just McKay and another man were on board at the time.On Monday, the ship somehow became disabled about 100 miles southeast of Nantucket.When rescue crews arrived on Tuesday, Coast Guard officials say the two men onboard made a decision to evacuate the vessel.They were handed survival gear by Coast Guard members, and then they jumped into the water, where a rescue swimmer met them.All three were then hoisted aboard a Coast Guard helicopter.Due to structural damage, Coast Guard officials say they decided not to tow the ship. A Coast Guard cutter was at the scene Wednesday morning, monitoring the disabled vessel.Back in 2006, Raw Faith ran into trouble at sea, losing all three of its masts. A Coast Guard boat towed the ship back to Rockland Harbor.And, on Thanksgiving day 2004, Raw Faith lost all power and communications, as well as control of its rudder, again, needing to be towed back into harbor.
