Boat sank off Star Island – our staff rescued 3.

In Isles of Shoals history there have been many sunken ships, some of their stories are available in books and at the ISHRA website.

More recently there was a lobster Boat in 2008 where Chris Tobey was lost.

The most recent was this July.  You can read the article from here.  The outcome was far better than previously noted, including the recently discussed drowning of the waitresses in 1902! Marshall Frye and Drew Clark, star island staff, were able to rescue the three aboard the 35 ft. vessel which hit halfway rock (halfway between Star and Lunging Islands).

After the three aboard the vessel were safely brought to Star Island their boat drifted and sank. Here is the salvage boat by Appledore Island as it floated and towed the boat out to the mainland.
