Boat Hull Removed from Newburyport Jetty

Newburyport News: A fiberglass boat hull that had been stuck on the north jetty since the craft flipped in high seas in June, drowning its owner, was towed to Joppa by the harbormaster this week and carried away by the city DPS on Wednesday [July 26] to be scrapped.

Harbormaster Paul Hogg secured and towed the shattered hull Tuesday with help from American Yacht Club members, dragging it onto the Joppa Park boat ramp. A crew from the city Department of Public Services used a front-end loader and dump truck to haul the hulk of the 20-footer away Wednesday morning.
