Couple Crashes Boat In Rockport On The First Day Of What Was Supposed To Be a Yearlong Trip- Doh!

From Boston 25 News

“I’m looking overboard and thinking, ‘Ok, I’m just going to have to jump in,” said Constable.

Instead of jumping in, they were able to climb up on the jetty. Rockport’s harbormasters said if they hadn’t made it off the boat on their own, the wreckage may have gone unnoticed.

“They would have been out there all night if they had not gotten off the boat,” said Scott Story, a Rockport Harbormaster.

“That’s unusual that someone can step ashore in the sea conditions that were out there,” said Rosemary Lesch, a Rockport Harbormaster.

  1. I have a feeling there were many factors here weather- time of day- breaking waves happen a lot and previous visits to Rockport? Layout even for the even most experienced Rockport can be very difficult (All these factors came together = disadvantage).
    Sorry to see anyone lose a dream and property, But made it out onto rocks without to many injuries from what I read – which is a good human ending, ships can be replaced, no so humans that is a good thing! Getting out with no injuries or minimal? Based on what I know to this point!
