Canadian tall ship Liana's Ransom crew rescued by U.S. Coast Guard

The captain of a Nova Scotia tall ship that was crippled off Massachusetts says a series of frustrating equipment failures eventually forced the crew to leap to the safety of a rescue boat.

Two motorized lifeboats operated by the U.S. Coast Guard safely evacuated the nine crew members of the Liana Ransom early Monday morning.

The 26-metre, steel-hulled ship was under tow and was expected to be arrive in Portsmouth Harbor, New Hampshire, by midnight Tuesday, said coast guard spokesman Ross Ruddell.

Ryan Tilley, the 24-year-old captain of the Nova Scotia vessel, said the rescue unfolded after several mechanical breakdowns.
