Just after 2 pm this ship broke a mooring line or something and got loose from the State Pier in Portsmouth Harbor.

It is my understanding  that another ship recently presented a real problem  when docking. It was a bear to get this other ship snugged up to the pier. In that area, Portsmouth Harbor with those tides, you have to  really be on the ball. I would think the Captain of the vessel is responsible for making sure his ship is secure.

Those with the local knowledge should be taking care of business too.

This is the 3rd incident where the tide has come into play . I am including   the two recent tug mishaps  that were due to insufficient attention being paid to mooring lines and the tide.

Route 1  is now closed as the bridge was damaged.
