Wind, skipper error blamed for grounding

A 42-foot vessel stuck in shallow water of the Caloosahatchee River near Jaycee Park in Cape Coral, Fla., was freed by two towboats and a rising tide.

The boat ended up outside the channel and was caught by heavy winds, pushing it onto shallow waters and the rocks, about 50-100 feet off the coastline.
