ST. GEORGE — The Maine Marine Patrol is investigating the sinking of a Port Clyde lobsterman’s boat on Wednesday, just days after the owner had repaired the boat after an earlier sinking on Aug. 17.
Tony Hooper, 37, said his lobster boat was released from its mooring overnight, with hoses and bilge wires cut, and left to wash up on a nearby island.
The sinking comes little more than a month after an earlier incident when his boat was found 30 feet underwater.
“I’m doing all I can to keep my wits about me,” he said.
