Ferry disabled off Mass. coast, but power is back on

SCITUATE, Mass. (AP) — The Coast Guard says a ferry from Provincetown to Boston has been disabled after being hit by a large wave.

WCVB reports that the Bay State Cruise Co. boat with 42 passengers was briefly stranded north of Scituate on Wednesday. No injuries were reported.

The Coast Guard says an engine regained power and was slowly headed back to Boston.

Another boat was dispatched to tow the disabled ferry back to Boston.

A spokeswoman for Bay State Cruise Co. did not immediately return a call seeking details.
