The Coast Guard reports a Quincy Police crew found a barge that capsized Sunday morning just north of one of the main shipping channels into Boston Harbor, about two miles south of Nahant, near the entrance to the harbor.
A Quincy Police crew with sonar found what appeared to be the barge in about 100 feet of water yesterday. The finding of the bard, the Dredge 200, was confirmed today, the Coast Guard says.
Close coordination with the Boston Harbor Pilots was crucial to ensure maritime commerce impacts were limited and deep draft vessels carrying vital goods were able to safely transit into Boston.
