MVGazette: The Unicorn fishing boat nearly sank Friday night [January 3] in Menemsha after a cracked valve caused the docked boat to take on gallons of water.

A crew of volunteers worked into the night in below freezing temperatures to pump out water from the hull and safely secure it.

Gregory Mayhew, captain of the 75’ vessel, said a cracked valve in the sea suction line on the wash down hose caused the boat to take on “quite a few gallons.”
