I spotted a small inflatable boat while taking photographs on the breakwater. At first I thought that someone may be diving, but could not see any diving flags. After an hour the dinghy continued to get closer to the breakwater. Finally it started to crash into the rocks. A gentleman form Rexford New York, who was fishing, climbed down the slippery rocks to capture the boat before it was damaged. Another fisherman cast a hook into the boat hooking a life jacket to guide it so he could pull the boat up onto a flat rock so the engine did not bang into the rocks, and held on to it. We called the Police. But shortly after we called the Police we spotted a sail boat heading in our direction. The sail boat from Rhode Island said It was their rubber boat, we released the rubber boat to them, called the police back, and off they went in their Oceanis 381 Chaser Sailboat, with wave and a quick “thank you”.
The Good Samaritan was the man from Rexford New York. He is a retired school teacher and a track coach. He and his wife rent in Gloucester, they love all that Gloucester gives. Yesterday he gave back, a rescue of an expensive “Highfield” rubber boat. Below are some photos of the events.
