Derelict boats are littering Georgia's coast. Products of a dismal economy for boaters, these environmental hazards are costly to remove and no one seems to have money to do it. A new effort is putting a small dent in a big problem.
Authorities in Brunswick, who have been trying to figure out what to do about sinking shrimp boats, are seeking a state grant to raise one such boat and make improvements to the city dock. The Florida Times-Union reports the city would match the $50,000 grant if approved.
