Backyard boatbuilder settles neighborhood dispute


The city of Newport Beach, Calif., and Dennis Holland agreed to settle their long-running dispute over the 72-foot ketch Holland is restoring in his backyard.

The vessel has been under restoration since 2006. The city passed an ordinance in 2010 and then filed a lawsuit this year to get Holland to remove the boat.

The suit was set to go to trial on Monday.
