In New Buffalo.....a million dollar boat wound up against the rocks in that city's harbor

yesterday.

Sources say the boat was heading onto the lake to go to St. Joseph to be stored

for the winter.

Apparently..the engine died and the north winds pushed the 60 foot long

vessel against the rocks late in the morning.

Bob Stratton is with Service 1 Marine out of New Buffalo.

He says the boat was still getting pounded against the rocks several hours later

while authorities were trying to arrange for a tow...

Stratton says the captain of the ship stayed on the boat for while but

eventually jumped into the shallow water and walked to shore.

There were no injuries.
