Owner to remove abandoned boat from beach

A boat that ran aground on Maui three weeks after it was abandoned at sea was to be hauled from the beach last Friday.

The 49-foot Quantum Leap's owner, Kona resident Michael Dickerson, planned to use an excavator to lift the vessel off Spreckelsville's Baby Beach on the north shore of Maui. State agencies are working with him while officials investigate possible reef damage from the wreck.
