BOS­TON — The Coast Guard warned recre­ational boaters in the ocean wa­ters off the North­east to watch for sharks, say­ing that the crea­tures could eas­ily cap­size a small boat or kayak. The shark ad­vi­sory, is­sued by the Coast Guard district that cov­ers wa­ters from Maine to New Jersey, came as ex­perts said they ex­pect great white sharks to be at­tracted by a rapidly grow­ing lo­cal seal pop­u­la­tion.
