Sippican Week: Mattapoisett, Massachusetts, residents questioned a $59,000 Special Town Meeting article to equip a new rescue boat given to the town, but ultimately approved the article.

The 27’ boat was recently retired from service by the Coast Guard and donated to the town for use by the Fire Department for rescues.

“This boat is going to provide a lot more safety for our staff as well as our boaters and everyone on the waterways that would require our services,” said Fire Chief Andrew Murray.
