Abandoned Boat Patrol

Charleston Waterkeeper took to the waters this morning to respond to a report of three abandoned boats in Hobcaw Creek. We’ve recently teamed up with a number of state-wide groups and agencies to train citizens to be spotters of marine debris. During today’s patrol, we recorded the necessary data so that DNR can appropriately address the derelict vessels. The good news was that the boats pictured above still had detectable hull numbers (which can be traceable) on their transoms; however, one of the three boats we documented was nearly under water and had no readable identification number. Enjoy your Labor Day weekend.
