At the time, they were about 135 nautical miles outside of St. John’s, and called the Maritime Rescue Sub-Centre in St. John’s for help.

Two people were onboard the Salurbrious, and had to stay on board throughout the entire tow – as sea conditions weren’t safe enough to transfer the passengers on to the larger Coast Guard rescue vessel.
