The Coast Guard just rescued a 143-foot yacht that was taking on water in the Pacific about 45 miles northwest of Grays Harbor, Washington.

You can see in the videos below that the large transom garage in the yacht is open. The Coast Guard said that water was entering the stern. “Vessel cannot close transom door and water has entered the stern,” the Coast Guard said. “Flooding is under control.”

There were seven people on board, but no one was injured. The Coast Guard sent a 210-foot cutter to tow the yacht, named Domani, up to the entrance to the Strait of Juan de Fuca. The crew from the yacht was transferred to the cutter. It took 24 hours for the cutter to arrive near Neah Bay, where the disabled yacht was transferred to a commercial tug.

It was not clear why the large garage door failed. Click on the link below to read more and see the videos:
