A Tulalip Fire Department boat crew transports a missing wind surfer off Kayak Point, north of Everett, Wash., Nov. 19.  A helo from CGAS PA hoisted the first wind surfer from the water and then helped the the second, whom the fire department crew pulled from the water. The FD boat was escorted by a 45-foot RB-M crew from STA Seattle to emergency medical service personnel waiting at Kayak Point.  (USCG photo by PO2 Evan Estep)
