The U.S. Coast Guard was called out this morning when a fisherman spotted a Mexican panga boat going in circles about three miles from shore.

No one was on board. The wheel had been tied down in one position to get the vessel to do loops. It had two Yamaha engines and they were going at a slow speed.
