The Coast Guard is taking Monday, the third day of National Safe Boating Week, to remind mariners of the importance of social boating, or maintaining communication, while recreating in and around the water.

Watchstanders in the Sector North Carolina Command Center in Wilmington received notice around 8 a.m. that a 33-foot pleasure craft was taking on water with five people aboard about 15 miles southeast of Carolina Beach.

The U.S. Coast Guard station in Green Bay held an open house Saturday.
