State to begin grounded boat removal

By 67AM KPUA News

The State Department of Land and Natural Resources says preliminary work to remove a sailboat that ran aground on a coral reef off the Old Kona Airport Sunday evening, should begin today.

The Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation will work with Cates Marine Service to dismantle the 40-foot vessel SEAQUEL on land under the direction of an archeological monitor.

Department spokeswoman Debra Ward says removal of the vessel could begin as early as today and should be fully underway by tomorrow.

Ward said the state had to step in because the boats California based owner had no vessel insurance and could not afford to pay for the salvage.
