Two years of loss, frustration, anger for Peggy Krupinski, widow of fisherman killed in collision with yacht

It’s been two years since Peggy Krupinski’s life changed in a horrible way. Officers from the R.I. Department of Environmental Management knocked on her door on Sept. 22, 2015, and told her that her husband of 55 years, Wally, was the victim of a boating collision earlier that morning. Wally was 81 at the time of the collision. He was in his 23-foot outboard off Napatree Point, near Watch Hill Light. In an incredible scenario when you consider all that water out there, a 60-foot yacht ran over Wally’s boat. The yacht, as determined by the investigation that followed, was being operated by Cooper W. Bacon, 76, a licensed captain — who was transiting this popular fishing area on a beautiful day in September on autopilot and with no lookout. click here to read the story 08:32
