Wednesday evening around 7 p.m. crab boat with a one man crew was making its way from Crescent Beach to White Rock last night when it encountered a problem forcing the pilot of the boat to abandon the boat and jump into the chilly waters. The fisherman had a survival suit and was able to make it safely to shore. The tide was going out and the boat ran aground.
The boat was secured so as not to drift out on the tide change. Early Friday morning the boat was pulled to safety and towed into the dock.
