When they arrived, three men were clinging to a sinking boat, two of them seriously injured. Sullivan's chief mate dove into the water to pull two of the men aboard the schooner, while the third man was able to reach the ship on his own. The men were subsequently transferred to USCG vessels and a helicopter, which had since arrived on the scene. In the course of events, the sinking boat punched a hole in the wooden schooner's hull, just above the waterline. U nder the command of Capt. G idget Greco and with the Coast Guard standing by, the Denis Sullivan's crew manned pumps and secured the hole, allowing the schooner to reach port safely.

A revamped Schooner Ernestina Commission met in March, for the first time since 2004, to plan for the future of th,e historic ship. According to the Massachusetts D ept. of Conservation and Recreation, which manages the ship, the estnmated cost of renovating the 1894 schooner is just under $2 m illion. The 9member commission, which was established by state law, fell apart when funding for the ship dried up and members' terms expired. By law, the commission must iruclude one New Bedford resident, one member of the Ernestina/Mo rrissey Historical Association and four members "whose expertise wo uld be an asset to the commission and the schooner Ernestina o r have particular expertise in the Cape Verdean histo ry as it relates to said schooner, or history of said ship as the Effie M Morrisey." The remaining members must include one representative each from D C R, the state D ept. of Education, and the state Office ofTravel and To urism. The
