High winds beach fishing vessel
CHATHAM
- High winds with the overnight storm were enough to tear a Chatham fishing vessel from its mooring and beach it in Aunt Lydia's Cove. There did not appear to be any serious damage to the 44 foot Dawn T although a small amount of diesel fuel spilled. Salvagers hope to be able to refloat the boat at the next high tide.
