If anyone wants to complain about the "expense" the Boston Harbor Patrol would have been on duty anyway, and will likely consider it a rapid response training situation.

They were also eliminating the risk of yet another bachelor party.

Helped him? Like, detained him on suspicion of whatever so he would have a reason to not show up?

Patrick was stranded at the dock and the replacement ferry ended up leaving 40 minutes late. That's when the Boston Police Department's Harbor Patrol Unit came to his rescue.  Boston police officers Joseph Matthews and Stefani McGrath quickly responded to the dock and were able to ferry Patrick....

I'm curious how they found out.  Like, I doubt anyone was calling the cops for this.  Maybe they overheard the radio convo between boat operators about the mechanical issues and decided "what the heck, free PR with our training time?" Or, happened to be at the same dock and saw the situation happening and offered?  Wish the article had explained that.

I'd say this should be a lesson in travel scheduling. Like, don't book a flight for the day of the wedding, or plan to get ready across town from the venue only to arrive 30 min early.

That's when Denise Holden, director of event sales for Thompson Island, contacted Boston Police Department's (BPD) harbor unit to ask for help.
