While underway, a Sandy Hook boatcrew noticed a pleasure craft, with five people aboard, had lost power to their outboard engine and were drifting towards submerged pilings at the entrance of the Atlantic Highlands Marina.


The boatcrew threw a heaving line over to the vessel in distress and successfully attached the towline.
