Officials Say ME Lobster Boat Sabotage Not Linked to Fishing
May 21, 2012
Kennebec Journal: Whoever sabotaged 2 lobster boats last week in Friendship apparently was motivated by something other than a territorial fishing dispute, authorities said Monday (May 14).
Investigators say they have no explanation for why one or more people tried to destroy 2 boats owned by a father and son from Cushing. They said the 2, who fish in waters off Cushing, have used the same fishing grounds for years, and have no history of conflict with fishermen who work in neighboring territories.
