PORTLAND (AP) — The Coast Guard says an investigation into what caused a fishing boat carrying four Maine fishermen to sink off Cape Cod will likely take weeks or months.
The boat sank off Provincetown on Monday when it was en route to Gloucester, Massachusetts.
Members of the Maine fishing community have been raising money for the families of the men lost at sea.
Coast Guard Petty Officer Amanda Wyrick says the cause of the sinking remained undetermined on Friday.
She says the investigation into the sinking could yield findings that can be used for updating policies and preventing future at-sea disasters.
