Coast Guard investigates sunken fishing boats in New Bedford


NEW BEDFORD, Mass. — The Coast Guard is investigating two sunken fishing boats in New Bedford harbor.

The Coast Guard says the New Bedford Fire Department found the vessels tied together with a sheen around them early Monday. Firefighters placed a containment boom to mitigate pollution.

The 65-foot Dinah Jane and 67-foot Nemesis are from New Bedford. The Standard-Times reports Carlos Rafael, a magnate known as “The Codfather,” owns them.
