Maui County firefighters aided a boat in trouble about a mile off Lauu Point on the southwest tip of Molokai Saturday.

A crewman aboard the 23-foot Nicole W, out of Oahu, used a cell phone to call the fire department for help. Four men in their 20s and 30s on board the boat said they were adrift in six- to 10-foot seas with winds blowing about 29 to 35 mph at about 2:23 p.m., a Maui Fire Department spokesman said.

A rescue boat and personal watercraft reached the vessel at about 3:45 p.m. and towed it to Hale O Lono Harbor by 5:05 p.m.
