Coast Guard suspends search for Gloucester fishing boat

(Continued)

The small, enclosed lifeboat was found Tuesday in a marshy area near the mouth of the Saugus River in Saugus, and some fishing gear was found on Nantasket Beach in Hull, about 30 miles south of Saugus, said Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Jeff Hall in Boston.

“Both things have been identified as being from the boat,” said Hall, who said winds and ocean currents can sometimes cause items from the same vessel to spread far apart.

The Gloucester Fishermen’s Wives Association has set up a fund for the families of the missing fishermen. Donations should be sent to Fishing Fund Foxy Lady II, in care of BankGloucester, 160 Main St., Gloucester, MA 01930.
