JONESPORT, Maine — A 50-year-old Addison commercial lobsterman was rescued by the Coast Guard after his boat got tangled in a mooring line Sunday morning.

The man, whose name was not released, was attempting to bring the "Just N Time" to Sawyer Cove to secure it during the storm, when the propeller became tangled in the ropes, Petty Officer Calobe Gandy said late Sunday morning.
