Marine assistance request – Jul 2021

On Saturday 10 Jul 2021 near the end of Fraser L/B safety patrol, a call came in to assist a boater who reported a vessel adrift near Wellington Point in Ladner. The Delta L/B was originally going to handle; however, Fraser L/B was closer. Upon arrival, we found the vessel already secured to a fishing camp dock by a passing pleasure boater. We checked if anyone was aboard but was vacant, also checked if taking on water as a slight list with engine hatches open and garbage bags all over. Coast Guard Rescue Centre took the report and advised us to leave the vessel where it was and they would record it in case of a report of loss. Fraser L/B was stood down and carried on with the conclusion of its patrol.
