A Sea Serpent was reported in 1931 just off the coast of Boston, Massachusetts. The creature was reported to Lowell Sun, a newspaper company. The article was brief but covered what it needed to:
“BOSTON, May 25 (AP) –
Captain Roy Marden of the Gloucester fishing schooner
Catherine Burke reported today that he sighted a sea serpent 20 miles east
of Boston lightship on May 18 as his vessel moved out to Georges Banks.
The monster was described by Captain Marden as about 50 feet in length, with
a head resembling that of a horse, a black smooth body and a tail like that
of a shark. It moved at a speed of about seven miles an hour, he said.”
