    BATANGAS: Three crew of a motor tugboat were rescued when their vessel sank off Mabini town on Saturday. Batangas Coastguard Deputy District Commander Gregorio Adel Jr. said M/T Gothong 5 was towing M/T Gothong 3 from Phoenix Oil Depot in Calaca, Batangas going to Maricaban to take shelter when strong waves and wind pummelled the two boats. M/T Gothong 3 sank near Barangay Bagalangit about three nautical miles away in Anilao. The eight crew from M/T Gothong 5 were all safe.

      Calaca and Balayan are bays only in name. The actual amount of shelter is minimal, with Balayan being marginally better. That’s why PNOC chose Mabini town to hq its fleet.
