The 71 meter long, 1200 dwt ferry Sankaty collided with the ferry Eagle at Hyannis, Massachusetts. The Eagle struck the Sankaty while pulling away from the wharf. The Eagle’s bow suffered a three foot long tear in the hull above the waterline. No reports of injuries on either vessel. A temporary patch was fitted to the Eagle and the vessel was able to resume service to Nantucket later the same day. An investigation into the incident is being conducted. No reports of pollution being released.
