Crews remove grounded boat off Ala Moana Beach Park

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Crews have removed a 36-foot boat that ran aground off Ala Moana Beach Park Friday night.

The Coast Guard helped rescue two people from the vessel after its engine died.

The owner's insurance company hired a salvage firm to remove the wreck, and moved the vessel to Keehi Small Boat Harbor.

The mast and rigging lines from the boat are still there and will possibly be removed Sunday, depending on weather conditions.
