According to reports, Former President George H.W. Bush ran his 38-foot boat aground on a beach in Maine while trying to maneuver through thick fog. The Associated Press tells us:
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.
Bush spokesman Jim Appleby says the former president and some family members were aboard when the boat ran aground between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. No one was hurt.
Appleby says Bush was close to shore in low visibility when a wave pushed his boat onto the beach.
This isn’t the first incident involving George H.W., a boat, and running into something. The video below is of a 2009 incident where George Sr. crashes his boat into a dock at Perkins Cove.
