REEF HOLES 47-FOOTER -
On July 3 around 1 p.m., this 47-foot Alden picnic boat hit Watch Hill Reef off Watch Hill, R.I., and began sinking. The boat had a broken propeller, struts and rudders, and the hull was completely penetrated on the port side, according to Don Rich, president of TowBoatU.S. in Mystic, Conn. There was also damage to the running gear on the starboard side. The boat rescue was a seven-hour process, he says.
