Mystery Boat Surfaces for Third Time
An illegally discarded boat that caused havoc for local authorities last month has once again appeared in a Facebook post by the Wareham Harbormaster Department.
The boat has most recently been found in a deteriorated condition on Cedar Swamp Road in the Freetown State Forest. It was previously found on the side of the road in Mattapoisett and then elsewhere in the Freetown side of the woods.
It is the responsibility of the boat owner to remove the vessel, which they did. However, they continue to illegally dump it elsewhere. The current state of the boat is causing greater environmental harm and substantial penalties and fines will follow, according to the post.
The matter is currently in the hands of the Massachusetts Environmental Police. Anyone with information can contact the MEP at 800-632-8075.
