Two missing fishermen were found and rescued by the Coast Guard late Wednesday night, said petty officer Connie Terrell.
The men were found in relatively good condition at around 9 p.m. in the Cape Cod Bay between Sandwich and East Sandwich.
The boat, the Carol and Allison out of Wellfleet, sunk at 4:15 p.m. on Wednesday, about an hour after the two called the Coast Guard station in Provicetown to request assistance, Terrell said.
Both fishermen were wearing survival suits, which Terrell said helped them stay warm and afloat until they were found.
The pair were checked out by Coast Guard personnel but declined any further medical treatment. They were picked up by their family at the air station late Wednesday night.
