(July 17, 2021): Update 10: 15 a.m.) The incoming fast ferry Grey Lady IV collided with another vessel shortly after rounding Brant Point in Nantucket Harbor around 9 p.m. Friday.
No injuries were reported. The Hinckley powerboat Razor Bill sustained danage above the water line and the Grey Lady IV recevied some bow damage, Hy-Line vice president Murray Scudder said Saturday morning.
The Grey Lady IV then grazed an unoccupied sailboat in the mooring field after the collision knocked it off course, Scudder said.
There was thick fog in Nantucket Harbor Friday night. The harbor is full of moored boats at this time of year.
Grey Lady IV passengers say the boat had slowed down after entering the harbor's no-wake zone when they felt a thump and heard a "crunch" and it came to a sudden stop.
It then made its way to the Hy-Line dock to let the passengers disembark. It then boarded in preparation for.a return to Hyannis, but the passengers had to get off the boat after the Coast Guard issued a no-sail order that was lifted this morning.
The Razor Bill made its way back to its slip near The White Elephant hotel after the collision.
A Coast Guard investigation is ongoing.
