Default Nantucket ferry hits Hyannis jetty

Sounds like the iyannough fast ferry hit a jetty upon entering or leaving Hyannis harbor and is aground, and they are trying to figure out how to get the passengers off, a few injured passengers were evacuated by helicopter

Yeah, around 10 pm Fri. the Iyanough crashed way up and through the jetty, holed hull, water in and noncritical passengers apparently stuck onboard due to tough sea conditions with the SE wind.
Knocked a lot of jetty boulders away.
Tug coming down from Boston. (7hrs.)

That is going to put a major hit on the service to the islands. Hope the people injured will be OK, will be curious to hear how this could have happened.

Check marine traffic, it never turned. 34.5 knots straight into the breakwater. That's always a high speed turn and is actually fun after running straight for an hour but he was wayyy off course. Its shocking for a boat that runs on autopilot 99.5% of the time to have it go wrong here...

Or killed. Must have been scary as hell for passengers. I always wonder how that could happen to a private vessel let alone a commercial ferry with a captain and a crew.

tell you what whoever made the call a few years back to commission that new tri deck cat for Hyline is looking like a genius right now.

the weather last night was horrendous, I'd guess there were only a couple hundred feet of visibility in the daylight, so basically nothing after dusk. GPS tracking can be off by a few hundred feet at any given moment, and if the boat is on autopilot......
