Photo taken as the Nina Bowater stood by a 'sinking' fishing boat that was still taking in fish. After sending a 'Mayday' an aircraft dropped a pump to the fishing vessel so it was pumping water as it took in fish. We were tasked by RCC to stand by and were relieved by a Canadian Coast Guard vessel after four hours. The boat refused to answere the radio, respond to blasts on the whistle or objects thrown at it. This delay eventually put us a week behind schedule because of weather and holiday weekends in port.
