Owner can reclaim boat tossed by Sandy

A federal judge Wednesday ordered that an Elmont, N.Y., boat owner can reclaim his 38-foot Silverton powerboat, tossed by Hurricane Sandy from its dry dock into a nearby homeowner's swimming pool.

A U.S. District Judge granted an emergency right to enter the homeowner’s property and retrieve the boat.
