No boat left behind at Mascoma Lake

Lebanon Firefighter Dan Huff rappels down to tie onto a pontoon boat stuck at the Mascoma Lake Dam in Lebanon, N.H., on Thursday, July 13, 2023. The Lebanon and Hanover fire departments worked together to recover the boat owned by Leroy Hawksley, of Windsor, that became stuck on Wednesday. “When that engine stalled, the current just took me,” said Hawksley, who had just put in at the nearby boat launch when the motor lost power and the boat was swept over the dam.
