Abandoned Boat Report

Beaufort, SC

"The abandoned boat is about 35 ft long, a white cabin cruiser style motorboat with a flying bridge. The boat has been moored unattended at the north end of Lucy Creek, just south of the Sam's Point bridge, following Hurricane Matthew, since about December 2016. It has broken loose from its anchor and has drifted back and forth across Lucy Creek, running aground in the marshes bordering the Creek, as driven by winds and tides for a couple of weeks. The boat has no visible anchor light and Lucy Creek is a busy channel connecting Morgan and Coosaw Rivers, so this boat adrift constitutes a hazard to navigation in addition to the damage being done to the marsh by repeated groundings. Additionally, a sailboat (name and registration unknown) anchored in the middle of the channel at about the same location as the abandoned motorboat, also without a visible anchor light, has been unattended since about December 2016, following Hurricane Matthew. This apparently unlighted and abandoned boat constitutes a navigation hazard to the many commercial (crabbers) and recreational boats transiting the Creek."
