John and Renee Hoffman of Black Mountain were sailing in Big Foot Slough on September 26 2013 when their boat capsized. Luckily, they were wearing their floatation devices.
After forty-five minutes in the water, they were rescued by a ferry run by Capt. Steven Goodwin, whose crew launched a sixteen foot rescue boat.
Glenn Salter and Daniel Smith pulled the Hoffmans from Pamlico Sound.
