Crews Attempt to Retrieve Tugboat From the Piscataqua River

Updated 1 year ago

The Coast Guard is planning to recover a tugboat that sank in the Piscataqua River, forcing two crew members to quickly escape. The tugboat, the Benjamin Bailey, is owned by Riverside Marine in Eliot, Maine. The business is a subcontractor to Archer Western, the firm working on the construction of the new Memorial Bridge connecting Portsmouth, N.H., to Kittery, Maine. It’s not clear why the tugboat went down on Wednesday. Neither crew member was hurt. Recovery efforts are expected Friday
