Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego lifeguards rushed to save a man and his two dogs from a sinking boat.

Craig Stuart was about five miles off Mission Beach when he said his boat developed a crack and quickly started taking on water.

Stuart advises anyone who boats to be prepared for anything.

"It's a matter of bringing the right safety equipment, knowing what to do. Being calm and collected, knowing what to do when something like that happens," he said. "Bottom line, make sure you have all your safety equipment and you got a radio, GPS. Lifeguards were great."

The boat was towed in. Stuart says he plans on taking it to a scrap yard and getting a new boat.
