A 43-foot Hinckley worth more than $1 million got stuck in a snowbank and tied up traffic Wednesday in Boston as it was being delivered to the Progressive New England Boat Show.

The brand-new Maggie Mae was set to be featured at the Feb. 14-22 show at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center. But on Wednesday the boat got stuck in the thick of downtown traffic.
