CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The Coast Guard assisted two mariners who became disoriented offshore Port O'Connor, Texas, Thursday evening.

At 5:40 p.m., Sector/Air Station Corpus Christi watchstanders were contacted by two mariners, a 72-year-old male and a 59-year-old female, aboard a 17-foot recreational vessel requesting Coast Guard assistance after their navigational equipment onboard had failed and the two had become disoriented. 

A Station Port O'Connor 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boat crew was launched. Once on scene, the crew of the RB-M escorted the recreational vessel to a nearby oil rig to moor the vessel for the night. The two mariners were transferred to the RB-M and transported to Station Port O'Connor.

The mariners were reported to be in stable condition.

The weather on scene was reported as 3-5-foot seas and 13 mph winds.
