    Thank you for the report. It has been forwarded to our federal, state, and local partners and our Beaufort office personnel.

    • This is uncanny. For three months we’ve watched that boat float around in Broad Creek or become grounded in the wetlands at low tide. The day after I post it on this site, the boat is gone. We don’t know if it floated much further downstream on yesterday’s new moon tide or if someone finally hauled it away.

  • Thank you for the update. Please let us know if you spot it again.
