Cape Canaveral Shipwreck
A man bought this boat in Miami and was taking it to New York. He didn’t want to pay the marina for an overnight stay, so he stayed off shore. Unfortunately, he didn’t use enough line for the anchor and during the night drifted and ran ashore. He was later seen that morning with a pink slip in his hand trying to sell it for 10 grand to beach goers. He didn’t want to pay Sea Tow because it was too expensive. So there it sat full of fuel.
A local resident setup a go fund me to help the man. Become the first donor!
UPDATE: Port Authorities confirmed, the vessel had hundreds of gallons of diesel on board, but luckily no fuel discharge or sheen has been reported. The Coast Guard opened the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund for the removal of the fuel from the boat. Those funds will be used if the boat owner refuses to pay. McLean is unsure if he will be able to keep his boat and what the costs are going to be.
A couple rumors have been circulating and contradicting information as to whether he was headed back home to New York or to Jamaica for a dream trip. Where he was headed still remains unknown but with the risk of losing the boat looming over, the owner’s priority is to get his father’s ashes off the boat.
It does look like the boat was successfully removed. Check out the live cam here!
