Backyard boat restoration prompts legal fight

The city of Newport Beach, Calif., plans to take a resident to court for refusing to remove a 72-foot, 42-ton yacht from his yard.

"She's the love of my life," said yacht owner Dennis Holland. "She's just so amazing. When I first saw her, I was 8 years old and I fell in love with her right off the start."

Holland adores his yacht, but some neighbors find it a nuisance.

"It's huge," said neighbor Dalia Lugo. "It's bigger than my house. It is taller than my house."

The dispute has led to a city hall legal struggle.
