43-foot yacht blocks traffic in snow-clogged downtown Boston

BOSTON (AP) — This was one hull of a traffic jam.

A large truck towing an even bigger boat broke down in downtown Boston, snarling traffic in the heart of the city's bustling Financial District.

WCVB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1KN6XsR ) the 43-foot yacht Maggie Mae was being hauled Wednesday to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center for the New England Boat Show that starts Saturday when the truck stalled.

Boston's narrow streets are tighter than usual because of heavy snow accumulation over the past two weeks.

Workers eventually got the truck and boat out of the congested neighborhood.
