Sailboat stranded on Jensen Beach

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

JENSEN BEACH, FL (WFLX) - A 40-foot sailboat, stranded on Jensen Beach for days, may not be going anywhere for a while.

Bob Freeman, a viewers who sent in some photos of the stranded boat, says he spoke with the owner, who told him local officials won't help free the vessel, because he's not an American citizen.

They told him to call Sea Tow, but he doesn't have the $3,000 it will cost to free the boat.

So, for now, the captain and his female mate are stuck trying to figure out what to do.
