off Boston MA: Whale watching tour boat gets entangled in mooring cable

There is no need to intrude on whales or to leave cables around.

Boat passengers tell of night stranded off Boston - WBTW-TV 
"The whale watch, one of the most popular summer tourist attractions in the Boston area, came to an abrupt stop Monday afternoon after one of the propellers on the 83-foot passenger boat Cetacea apparently became entangled with a cable that moors large vessels, such as liquefied natural gas tankers, Coast Guard Petty Officer Robert Simpson said. Earlier reports said the boat got hung up on a lobster trap rope."
