Thick fog and a wave throw President Bush's boat up on to a beach
The 38ft sportsfisher Fidelity IV drew strange looks from tourists as it sat stranded on Gooch’s Beach at low tide until it was returned to its dock in Kennebunkport a few hours later.
Mr Bush’s spokesman Jim Appleby said Mr Bush was cruising close to shore in low visibility when a wave pushed his boat on to the beach.
The former president and some family members were aboard when the boat ran aground but no-one was hurt.
