Charter boat gets stuck on sandbar in Seabrook

Captain Bob’s Lobster Tours and Fishing Charters had to cancel an outing Saturday when the 42-foot Miss Ava Lee got stuck on a sandbar. Capt. Jeanne Bailey said Capt. Bob Tonkin was expected to be stranded for at least six hours as the tide came in. He kept himself busy by cleaning the bottom of the vessel. Sand shoaling in Hampton Harbor has been causing serious issues for those who navigate the waters for work and recreation. The area was last dredged in 2012 and the channel is currently only 20 feet wide in some places. There has been federal legislation filed to get both Hampton Harbor and Portsmouth Harbor dredged, but until then, Bailey is hoping for better markers in Seabrook. >click to read<13:48
