A 49-foot boat docked at the Constitution Marina in Charlestown, Massachusetts sank today, forcing members of Clean Harbors to drain diesel fuel from the boat.

The owners, Walter Hope and his partner Jeff Doretti, had just returned from a vacation trip in Brazil. They had lived on the boat for the past seven years.
