BOSTON — A picture from a crowded boat party in Boston has gone viral and now the mayor has issued a cease and desist order to Bay State Cruise Company.
Boston 25 News spoke with Marty Walz Sunday night, who posted a picture of the backed boat.
“I could hear the noise coming off the boat and see the large crowd of people,” Walz said. “So that’s when I grabbed a photo of it because it was so shocking.”
By Monday evening, Mayor Marty Walsh had issued a cease and desist order:
Bay State Cruiser manager Michael Glasfeld told Boston 25 News Sunday the boat sailed at 33% capacity.
“The picture that was taken from Pier 4 this evening was of our harbor cruise vessel getting underway for a 7 to 9:30 p.m. cruise,” said Bay State Cruise manager Michael Glasfeld. “We sailed at 33% capacity. The deck areas of our vessel provide for 28 square feet per passenger (the area of a six-foot circle) for up to 44% of our vessel’s capacity.”
