Coast Guard rescues man in duct tape boat

Some men believe duct tape can fix anything. It can't. The U.S. Coast Guard in Juneau, Alaska, were called to rescue a 32 year old man whose homemade, duct-taped water craft was sinking. The not-so-innovative sailor was attempting to row Gastineau Channel between  to Point Bishop in an inflatable boat when the problem arose. Thankfully, the man and his dog were rescued and transported to safety.

"I noticed the craft in the channel and I could tell the man was not wearing a life jacket and the craft was not safe," says Lt. Joseph Schlosser. "I contacted the sector command center and the Station's smallboat crew responded quickly and helped the man to safety."
