Boat Sinks off Cleveland Ledge in Buzzards Bay

Three people were rescued in Buzzards Bay on Saturday, Sept. 5, after their 24-foot powerboat took on water and capsized. The incident took place around 2:00 p.m. near Cleveland Ledge Light.

Responding were members of the Bourne Harbormaster’s Dept. and the Mattapoisett Harbormaster’s Dept.

The three boaters—who apparently had been en route to the Cleveland Ledge Lighthouse perform repairs—were taken in the Bourne harbormaster’s boat to Megansett Harbor.

No injuries were reported, and the incident is being investigated by the Buzzards Bay Marine Task Force.
