The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is investigating a 42-foot sailboat that sank around 11:20 a.m. Friday morning in the Intracoastal Waterway at Marker 18 near Ponce Inlet, New Smyrna Beach. The boat ran aground and slowly sank.
FWC officers removed the two people on board, their cocker spaniel, and their belongings, taking them safely to shore.
The boat, named Primrose, was built in 1977. The boat owners are in the process of removing the vessel from the waterway.
The boat is registered to an owner from Green Cove Springs.
