Boston Harbor Ferry Runs Aground

https://www.boston.com/news/local-ne...-boston-harbor

MBTA claims the ferry was cut off by a sport fisherman. Dense fog, low tide, narrow channel. Perfect conditions for a grounding. Many details missing.

Ferries travel at a very high speed through the harbor. The Hull ferry passes through Nubble channel, a narrow channel with rocks on either side. Nixes Mate on stbd side is notorious for ripping bottoms out.

Passengers state they heard grinding sound then sudden stop. No mention of fog horn or danger signal. I'm guessing ferry was too fast for conditions.
