Boat stuck on Kaneohe reef for another day

KANEOHE, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The 40-foot boat that's been crunching coral heads in Kaneohe bay since Tuesday will be there at least until tomorrow.

The state says marine salvage contractor Parker Marine Worldwide, LLC attempted to remove the vessel "Boom Boom" during the high tide early Thursday morning (about 3-4 a.m.) in Kaneohe Bay but ran into some problems while trying to protect the reef.  

The salvage crew will try again at high tide early tomorrow morning, Friday Nov. 16.

The vessel is secured in its rigging for tomorrow's attempt.
