TOWN REMOVES STRANDED SAILBOAT FROM BEACH

The Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea removed a stranded sailboat from the beach on Tuesday (Aug. 25) just south of Anglin’s Pier at Commercial Boulevard .

The 24-foot sailboat washed ashore in Town at 9 AM after running out of gas. The vessel’s captain and owner said the mast on the vessel was broken. He could have avoided grounding the vessel had he dropped the boat’s anchor.

The vessel was traveling north from the Keys at the time of the incident. The captain told the Town he could not afford to have the vessel towed anywhere.

After the owner signed over the title of the vessel to Sal’s Towing, Sal Towing – in conjunction with the Town’s Municipal Services Department — used a backhoe and front-end loader to drag the vessel off the beach at about 4:30 PM Tuesday.

The Town extended its thanks to Sal’s Towing for its help in removing the vessel.

Firefighters with the Town’s Volunteer Fire Department and deputies from the Broward Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of the vessel stranding Tuesday, which attracted curious beach-goers and camera crews from local TV stations.
