The man radioed for help around 6:30 p.m., saying that his 16-foot vessel had capsized and he was on top of the hull, Coast Guard officials said. A Coast Guard member spotted the man from a pier, and the crew on a 41-foot boat dispatched from Wrightsville Beach rescued him.
The man was wearing a life jacket, officials said.
