On 08 November 2017 at 1218 UTC (0814 EDT) the COSPAS-SARSAT system detected a 406 MHz Personal Locator Beacon (PLB) at 22 44.1N 72 53.6W, approximately 54 NM east of Crooked Island, Bahamas. The PLB was activated when the 39' pleasure craft SHENANIGANS, with 2 people on board, started taking on water. Coast Guard District 7 received the SARSAT alert and launched a rescue helicopter from Sector Inagua Islands. The helicopter arrived on scene and lowered a water pump to aide in de-watering the vessel. The vessel was completely de-watered and made way for Long Island, BS.
