Fishing Boat Grounds on Beach in Sandwich, MA


Cape Cod Times: A 47’ fishing boat grounded on Town Neck Beach [in Sandwich, MA] on Thursday morning after a failure of its autopilot system, according to crewmembers.

“It zigged when it should have zagged,” said Mitch, a crewmember of the Capt. RM Chase, out of New Bedford, who declined to give his last name.

The boat ran aground at about 7:00 a.m. Thursday [May 12] after an autopilot error caused the boat to head straight onto the beach instead of turning, he said.
