PROVINCETOWN– A fishing vessel sunk overnight at Macmillan Wharf in Provincetown. It is believed the F/V Searcher got caught under the wharf when the wind switched behind yesterday’s storm. The incoming tide then pushed it down. Provincetown Harbormaster personnel deployed booms to contain any fuel from the boat. A crane was brought and divers positioned straps below the vessel. The crane was then able to lift the vessel up just before noon.
