Three Greenport men were rescued Monday after their boat capsized in Plum Gut Harbor off Orient Point, Southold Town police said.

Rony Palencia, 43, Jhony Palencia, 17, and Emidio Choy, 22, were in a 17-foot center console boat near the Orient Point Lighthouse at around 11:15 a.m. when their vessel began taking on water, police said.

The three men were rescued by other boaters after the vessel capsized, officials said.

No injuries were reported.

A Southold Town bay constable then picked up the stranded boaters and transported them to Klipp Park in Greenport, police said. Their vessel was towed by Douglas Marine to the same location, officials said.
