Abstract

"Along the Waterfront" piece about a twenty-seven foot wooden tuna boat that sought shelter in the Kennebunk River in August because of the big seas kicked up by Hurricane Felix, only to be hoisted high by on a steep swell and then smashed into a rock on the exposed bottom of the narrow channel. Skipper David Nadeau, of Provincetown, Mass., and his mate made it to safety. The boat was split in two, according to Dwight Raymond, of Performance Marine. Raymond says the swells were running as high as fourteen feet off the breakwater at the time and that the channel is so narrow a big swell can suck the water right out.
