Local family stranded on whale-watching boat


BOSTON, Mass. (AP) — They weren't castaways, but like the tourists on Gilligan's Island, a group of whale watchers expecting only a three-hour tour got much more after their boat was snagged by a mooring cable off Massachusetts and they were forced to spend a long night at sea.

The Boston Harbor Cruises whale watch vessel was freed Tuesday and docked at Boston's Long Wharf shortly after 8 a.m., some 17 hours after the voyage began. No injuries were reported for any of the 157 passengers or six crew members, but a number of people suffered seasickness during the long wait, according to passengers.
