STONINGTON—Two Isle au Haut mailboat captains, Mike Moffett and Trent Quinby, acted quickly to save two people from being blown out to sea in a Sunfish with a broken rudder on the morning of August 30.

Moffett said he and Quinby were preparing the mailboat Otter for her run to Dark Harbor shortly after 9 a.m. when a passenger on the dock saw a commotion on the water.

“He said, ‘I don’t want to alarm anyone, but it appears this couple is in trouble,’” Moffett said in a phone interview.
