Tall Ship Crashes into Four Other Boats

NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) - The owner of a tall ship that crashed into four other boats in Rhode Island after a seafood festival is blaming the incident on a dock line that became entangled on its two propellers. The 200-foot, three-mast ship SSV Oliver Hazard Perry crashed Sunday in Newport Harbor. No one was injured. On Monday, it was still blocking a channel into the Newport Yacht Club, preventing a cruise ship from disembarking passengers.
