Shipwrecked boat still outside home three years after Sandy

A Staten Island, N.Y., family says they’ve been stuck with an abandoned sailboat right outside their home for nearly three years.

The rusted shipwrecked sailboat has been sitting there since Hurricane Sandy, a daily reminder to Vincent and Camille Fattos of the night the storm gutted their home.

“That mast went into my neighbor’s house, wrecked her windows, her doors, the whole back of the house,” Camille Fattos told CBS 2 News. “If we get a storm, which way is that mast gonna come? Who’s gonna be responsible if it makes a lot of damage?” said Vincent.
