ATLANTIC CITY - Relatives of the six men rescued at sea after their sport boat broke down were reunited with their loved ones today.

Click 'NEXT' to see an extended footage of the Coast Guard towing the boat to Atlantic City as well as an interview.

The fishing vessel Black Magic docked at the Atlantic City Coast Guard Station at around 4:40 p.m. to cheers of the men's families who were waiting for them. The boat was towed back to shore by the U.S. Coast Guard, which lasted more than 20 hours.

The six men set out Saturday for a tuna-fishing excursion that they expected would last one night. When they didn't return Sunday, relatives called authorities. Coast Guard aircraft and boats were used to find the boat yesterday, some 120 miles off the New Jersey coast.

The men are believed to all be in good physical health. 6 missing boaters found alive off NJ coast
