Ray Olsen, 68, of Eureka, Calif., was the only person on board the 50-foot fishing vessel, the Avrigo, when it ran aground on the rocky shoreline at 3:30 a.m., the Coast Guard said.
A Coast Guard lifeboat was launched but could get within only 100 yards of Olsen because of shallow water and jagged rocks. Olsen, who was wearing an insulated cold-water survival suit, entered the water and swam to the lifeboat. The fishing boat was not able to be salvaged.
A Coast Guard helicopter also was launched but was unable to reach Olsen because of heavy fog.
