The 77-foot, Gloucester-based lobster boat, Michael & Kristen, which became disabled and was drifting in high seas about 200 miles southeast of Nantucket on Wednesday, was being towed home by a Coast Guard cutter last night, through wind gusts of some 40 mph.
There were five people aboard the boat, which is owned by the corporation, Fair Winds Inc., according to Coast Guard spokeswoman Lauren Jorgenson. The corporation is headed by Charlie Raymond of Beverly, and the ship captained by Ron Davis of Rochester, N.H.
