As the wife of the owner of the boat Lotta Fun, I want to express my gratitude to the U.S. Coast Guard Cape Disappointment and Group Astoria for rescuing my husband, Brian, and friends. They were so gracious and professional and kept a sad day from turning into a devastating one.
My husband has always been respectful of the ocean and his boat was outfitted with accurate and functioning GPS, VHF and Coast Guard approved life vests. This saved their lives. The Lotta Fun was a good boat and we have many cherished family memories aboard her. She will be missed.
