2 men rescued as boat sinks in Chesapeake

September 23, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Co-captains Glenn James and Charles Brown were rescued yesterday as their 50-foot charter fishing boat, the Bounty Hunter, sank in the Chesapeake Bay.

Mr. James, 47, of Annapolis, said he and Mr. Brown were about halfway through a trip there from Solomons when a warning light indicated the bilge was letting in water.

Their radio call to the Coast Guard at 1:16 p.m. brought a Maryland Natural Resources Police rescue boat to the scene near Calvert County's Breezy Point. Mr. James and Mr. Brown, of Lusby, were in the water, unhurt but chilly, hanging on to a life raft.
