The individual whose body was recovered yesterday, March 29, from the Medomak River is Dale Boyington, 45, a shellfish harvester from Waldoboro.
The Maine Marine Patrol says two others were with Boyington in the 12-foot skiff as it crossed the Medomak River after harvesting clams on a nearby island when their boat sank in choppy seas. The two other individuals were able to make it to shore along the Dutch Neck shoreline. One was treated at the scene for hypothermia and the other was transported to a nearby hospital and later released.
Boyington’s body was discovered near Hollis Point by a volunteer who joined in the search effort and notified Marine Patrol Officers. His body has been transported to the Office of Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy.
