Capsized fishing boat blocks busy shore inlet

A 70-foot fishing boat that capsized moments after setting sail Wednesday morning could remain stuck in New Jersey's Manasquan Inlet until next week, and it was not clear whether the heavily traveled gateway to the ocean would remain closed until then.

The inlet remained closed to boat traffic, although the Coast Guard was escorting a few boats returning to their bases along the inlet, which leads to the Manasquan River.
