Rescue squads help anglers with malfunctioning boat

Robert Aitken, left, of South Royalton, exits Mascoma Lake while a rescue team from the Lebanon and Hanover fire departments prepare to tow the boat that he and his friend Bob Marchione, of Lebanon, (not pictured) got stuck in on Friday. The pair were taking the boat out on the water for the first time this season after getting it back from the repair shop, and didn’t realize there was an issue with the boat’s steering until after launching. There were no injuries in the incident, “just my pride,” Marchione said.
