September 11, 2014
TheDay.com: A 45’ steel-hulled boat that had been anchored illegally in [Connecticut’s] Mystic River broke loose Monday night [September 8, 2014] and washed ashore on Williams Beach behind the Ocean Community YMCA.
Last month, a group of residents had warned town officials and the Mystic River Harbor Management Commission that the boat, owned by Jim Murphy of Stonington, posed a threat to nearby homes or marinas in the event of a storm. They urged the commission to remove the boat and fine Murphy.
