The Capt. Gavin commercial fishing vessel ran aground, on the beachfront, just after 5 a.m. in Point Pleasant Beach this morning.
Coast Guard officials said in a statement Wednesday that Station Manasquan Inlet launched a 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew to the scene and have representatives on the ground, though no damage has been reported to the vessel nor has any environmental damage occurred. The Associated Press reported that no injuries were sustained in the incident.
The fishing vessel is 77 feet long, the Coast Guard said.
The boat ran aground several hundred yards south of Elizabeth Avenue in Point Pleasant Beach.
