Town works to get abandoned boat removed

A wooden Chris-Craft pleasure boat was trapped against the rocks in high winds with waves crashing around it on the coast of Atlantic Highlands, N.J., last month.

Two people on the vessel were shaken, but uninjured, when rescue personnel took them off the bow of the boat in an aerial bucket extended from the Seastreak pier in the Atlantic Highlands Municipal Harbor on a cold night on March 21.

The vessel, JO-LYN IV, was built in 1958 and is registered in New York. It is 38.1 feet long and 12.5 feet wide, according to an online registry.

And there the vessel sits abandoned today.
