Crane to remove ketch aground

Crews were working to remove a 33-foot clipper ketch sailboat that grounded ashore Friday on western Florida’s Ormond Beach after its owner was rescued a day earlier.

The owner's insurance company arranged for the boat's removal, which will be conducted by a crane during low tide, authorities said.
