Catch of the Year
After police had exhausted their search for the lone surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect and Gov. Deval Patrick lifted the curfew that shut down Boston and the surrounding communities, Watertown’s Dave Henneberry was finally able to go outside his home and enjoy a cigarette. Henneberry noticed the tarp that covered his 22-foot pleasure boat — a white Seahawk with blue trim and a fiberglass hull — was out of place, he decided to see what was wrong.
He climbed a ladder, looked in the boat and eventually saw a body. He quickly dialed 911 and police eventually nabbed their suspect. Henneberry’s good deed was not unnoticed. An online fund set up to buy him a new boat raised more than $50,000, which he accepted after refusing multiple offers for financial help.
He also deserves free Dunkin’ Donuts coffee and Camels for life.
