RI Fishing Boat Sinks After Breaking Mooring Line
February 6, 2013
EastBayRI.com: Living Waters, a Bristol-based fishing boat, broke free from its mooring late Wednesday night (January 30) or early Thursday morning and drifted into the rocky shoreline next to the Lobster Pot restaurant.
Passersby noticed the large green trawler washed up just a few feet from the popular restaurant early Thursday morning and alerted officials. Sgt. Dan White from the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management responded to the scene and by about 8:30 was waiting for the boat’s owner to arrive.
