On the 8th of April 1963, the New Bedford dragger Sunapee was fishing sixty miles south of Montauk Point, L.I., when she started to move backward. Captain Nelson Ostman, skipper of the 74-footer, said the crew had seen a submarine in the vicinity earlier and realized immediately that they had caught onto the sub. He tried to swing the vessel around so that the net would pull free, but the maneuvering was unsuccessful and the Sunapee lost her nets, lines, and drags, valued at $3,000. The Navy at Boston said it knew nothing of the incident and was investigating.
