The vessel was described as a 37-foot boat named No Problem.

A vessel by the same name is listed as a fishing boat that is used for private and shared charters run by the Extreme Fishing Maui company.

Among those responding to the incident for the initial search were the US Coast Guard and the Maui Fire Department’s Rescue 10 crew from Kahului, Rescue Boat 3, and Air-1 helicopter.
