Wareham/Boat Sinks

Wareham/boat sinks

7/25/18

Crews from the Wareham Department of Natural Resources, Onset Fire Rescue and TowboatUS responded Tuesday for a report of a vessel that sank at a mooring in the vicinity of Onset Island.

The boat was using someone else’s mooring and locating the actual owner took some time.

Due to the vessel being submerged and a concern that it might be leaking fuel, Onset Fire dispatched their Mass-DEP Hazardous Materials Spill Trailer to the scene. The Coast Guard was also alerted to the incident.

TowboatUD raised the sunken vessel without incident and removed it from the water.
