INCONVENIENT BOAT WRECK
Two people are safe after the Coast Guard rescued them from their homemade boat a mile off Sandy Hook, N.J. The Coast Guard received a distress call from the vessel, The Inconvenient Truth, on Tuesday afternoon. Colin Cote, of Waterbury, Vt., reported his craft had lost power and was taking on water in seas of 1 to 2 feet.
Efforts to tow the boat failed, and waves battered the plywood and resin craft into pieces.
No one was injured.
The Inconvenient Truth – which shared its name with Al Gore’s global-warming movie – was trying to sail from Staten Island to Florida by the Intracoastal Waterway.
