St. George — A wooden dragger tied to a private wharf in Port Clyde sunk sometime before the morning of Dec. 19.

The St. George Fire Department responded to the scene shortly after 7 a.m. at the wharf owned by the Port Clyde General Store, said Assistant Fire Chief Chris Leavitt.

Store personnel reported the sinking.

The vessel is owned by David Oakes and Leavitt said he does not believe the sinking is suspicious.

The cause has not yet been determined, but will be investigated when the boat is brought topside, Leavitt said.
