Coast Guard identifies mysterious object which washed ashore in Palm Beach County

A strange-looking object discovered off the Palm Beach County coast has been identified as part of a pontoon boat.

The object was first noticed in the water near Highland Beach and drew the attention of the Coast Guard, Homeland Security and FBI.

The Coast Guard suspects the pontoon was part of a boat used to smuggle Cuban migrants to the U.S. Investigators do not think it was part of a drug operation.

It's not sitting on the beach and heavy-equipment machinery will be used to remove it from the shore.
