CLEARWATER - A 33-foot commercial fishing vessel that ran out of fuel 45 miles west of Clearwater on Monday was towed to safety about 7 p.m. Feb. 8.

The Coast Guard Cutter Alligator towed the Miss Stephanie to just outside Clearwater Pass, where the tow was taken over by the fishing vessel Fishing Technician.

A report of the disabled vehicle came into the Coast Guard Sector St. Petersburg Command Center at 5:21 p.m. Monday, from two men aboard the Miss Stephanie, homeported in Madeira Beach.

The Coast Guard Cutter Venturous, a 210-foot ship homeported in St. Petersburg, was diverted to assist the disabled vessel and arrived on scene at approximately 8:30 p.m. Monday. Venturous crews launched a small boat containing a rescue and assistance crew, but were unable to transfer crewmembers to the Miss Stephanie in the deteriorating weather and building sea state.

The Alligator arrived on scene at approximately 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to take the vessel into tow.
