On April 8, the 77 foot long fishing vessel Capt. Gavin ran aground on Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey. The Capt. Gavin had run ashore while carrying some 600 pounds of scallops. The fishing vessel remained high and dry for several days after initial attempts to refloat the vessel failed. A tug was finally able to pull the fishing boat back into the water on the rising tide. No reports of injuries, damage or pollution released.
