The Anna May Rescue

Record #:
Accounts of shipwrecks and rescues along the Outer Banks are often dramatic, and the rescue of the ANNA May is no exception. The fishing trawler went aground on Diamond Shoals in 1931. As the vessel sank, the crew of 5 were stranded clinging just above the breakers. Surviving over night, the crew were reached by Cape Hatteras Coast Guard lifeboats the following morning just as the mast broke into the waters.
