The Boatlift of 9/11


Post by Becky at Dockwa - Published on 9/10/21 8:00 AM

How did boaters evacuate half a million people from lower Manhattan in less than 10 hours? On a national day of mourning, this uplifting story always stands out to our crew. 

Watch: the story of the New York area mariners who worked together to create an impromptu flotilla of tug boats, ferries, and other vessels – commercial and civilian alike – to evacuate an estimated 500,000 people trapped in lower Manhattan, in what became the largest boatlift in history.
