Tote delivery


A helicopter crew from USCG Air Station Sitka hoists 19-year-old Ryan Harris from the blue fish tote in which he had drifted for over 24-hours. Harris was the deckhand aboard the 28-foot fishing vessel Kaitlin Rae, which sank suddenly off of Cape Edgecumbe the afternoon of Friday, September 7, 2012. Neither Harris nor his skipper, Stonie “Mac” Huffman had time to get out a mayday call. Huffan found a survival suit in the debris and managed to climb into it. He was picked up from the beach on Pt. Amelia about 10 miles from where the Kaitlin Rae sank. Harris, in his tote-turned-lifeboat, was spotted by another fishing vessel a few more miles to the north near Eagle Rock.
