G.H.W. Bush's Boat Runs Aground on Beach in Maine

Tuesday, 13 Jul 2010 07:17 AM

Former President George H.W. Bush's fishing boat ended up high and dry on a beach near his Maine home after it ran aground in thick fog.

Fidelity IV became a curiosity for tourists as it sat stranded on Gooch's Beach at low tide on Monday. Hours later, his staff moved the boat to its dock in Kennebunkport.

The former president and some family members were aboard when the boat ran aground between 3 and 3:30 p.m., said Bush spokesman Jim Appleby. No one was hurt.

Bush was close to shore in low visibility when a wave pushed his boat onto the beach, Appleby said. As water receded at low tide, tourists walked up and snapped photos of the 38-foot boat.
