ROUNDING THE POINT
Point Reyes CA

CG36389

In the early morning hours of June 6, 1957 I was assigned as crewmember of Motor Lifeboat 36389. We were dispatched to assist the fishing vessel Anna L.A. located in the vicinity of Stemple Creek north of Point Reyes (CA). As we rounded the Point we were met head on by a full gale and our engine quit. Restarted, we continued on when the engine quit again for the final time. We were blown through the thunderous surf and beached her safely. There were no injuries thanks to the skill of the coxswain and our continuous training. The distress call that we were proceeding to was later determined to be a hoax...one that nearly cost the four of us our lives.

Taken at the Chatham Fish Pier during the Chatham Station reunion. This is the restored 36500 MLB. Beautiful job on the restoration by the Orleans Historic Society. She is the vessel that rescued 32 of 33 men off the SS PENDLETON when the ship broke in half off of Chatham.

What a contrast to her sister in the above photos. This photo and the three below were submitted by Bill Collette USCG (ret). She now sits at the Town Barn in New Bedford rotting with most of its artifacts removed and its equipment missing? Another of New Bedford MA's preservation projects? (See the Pollock Rip LV Demise page)
