SCHOONER LIKI TIKI
DECEMBER 1, 1964

To the LIKI TIKI's rescue once again. The 67-foot schooner LIKI TIKI drifts helplessly in the Atlantic Ocean, whipped by gale force winds, 60 miles southeast of Cape May, N.J., after a U.S. Coast Guard helicopter removed the yacht's six occupants on December 1, 1964. The LIKI TIKI was on a skin diving expedition to Big Pine Key, Fla., when enveloped by snow squalls and 20-foot seas. Her rigging was badly damaged, and she began taking on water. Despite the Coast Guard's continuous efforts to salvage the vessel, she capsized and sank off Cape Charles, Va., in 110 feet of water. The Coast Guard's rescue operations marked the 9th time that the service had come to the aid of the LIKI TIKI since July 1. (USCG)
