The 71’ fishing vessel F/V Olivia and Raphael out of New Bedford struck the east jetty of Nantucket Harbor at around midnight on Monday, May 8, when it lost power.

The accident caused a small hull breach, but the vessel was able to make it safely to the Town Pier in Nantucket Harbor under its own power. No injuries were reported.
