Coast Guard crews pulled a Hull man out of Hull Bay on Wednesday evening.

Coast Guard Station Point Allerton found Timotej Eclmovic clinging to the side of his 14.5-foot sailboat at 6:30 p.m. after they received a call from a person on shore who saw him in the water. No injuries were reported.

A 41-foot boat crew from Station Point Allerton that was in the area was diverted to the scene, and a 25-foot rescue boat crew was sent to assist.

“His life jacket definitely helped as he was clinging to the side of his boat,” said Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Nicholas Lindstrom.

“The water temperature was in the high 60s and the closest shore was about 500 yards away. That would have been pretty far for him to try to swim.”

The Hull Harbormaster towed Eclmovic’s sailboat back to its mooring.
