Yesterday, at approximately 7:05 am the MBTA commuter boat Salem Ferry left the Hull dock to go to Boston. Shortly after departure, the steering rod sheered off and the boat lost all steerage. Because of the calm, careful leadership of the skipper, Meghan, the boat was gently beached until help could arrive. In my humble opinion, Meghan is the most talented skipper in the entire commuter boat fleet. She is often at the helm of Voyager III, the most difficult boat, as it has high freeboard and is a handful to land in a 30 knot breeze. Meghan makes it look easy and almost always lands the boat perfectly on on the first attempt. Meghan is a great example of grace under pressure and she is worthy of a citation for her calm, cool service.
