PROVINCETOWN - A Coast Guard boat tows the 77-foot disabled lobster boat "Michael and Kristen" past Wood End Light in Provincetown, Massachusetts on Saturday (12-19-09) morning before a major winter storm is expected to hit the region. The lobster vessel has been disabled since Wednesday after suffering engine failure 200 miles southeast of Nantucket. The 270 foot Coast Guard cutter Escanaba towed the disabled lobster boat and its 5 member crew to Provincetown where it was met by members of Coast Guard Station Provincetown and brought to MacMillan Pier.
