A 43-foot yacht got stuck in the snow in Boston and blocked traffic for hours

Imagine the AA Roadwatch update.

DON’T YOU JUST hate it in when your yacht gets stuck in the snow?

Ugh, the worst.

That’s exactly what happened in Boston yesterday when a 43-foot yacht named Maggie Mae got stuck in the snow and wound up blocking traffic in the city.

According to Boston Business Journal, the yacht was being towed on an 18-wheeler that got stuck in the snow.

The yacht, which was on its way to a boat show, was eventually freed after crews successfully dug up snow and towed the 18-wheeler.

Traffic disruptions aside, the sight of a yacht trapped in the snow sure captured the imagination of Bostonians.

Although the decision to haul a yacht through the city in such wintry conditions was questioned by some.

Classic Boston.
