WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- ONLY ON 3... A close call as the USS Gravely headed out to the ocean yesterday.

Viewer Mark Todd shot this video of the Gravely as it headed down the Cape Fear River. As it neared Snow's Cut, a sailboat got a little too close. A Coast Guard boat escorting the Navy's newest destroyer closed in on the Kat Man 2 to keep it away and let the Gravely pass.

A Coast Guard spokesman said he does not know of any charges against the sailboat crew.
