Salamander Bay firefighters received a call on Wednesday morning to a boat 100 metres offshore from Corlette that had taken on significant amounts of water and was in danger of sinking. The crew loaded a portable pump and lengths of hose onto a runabout to assist the owner in saving the boat. They successfully pumped enough water from the boat to enable it to be towed for repairs.
