Fishing boat Captain Gavin grounded on Point Pleasant Beach

No one was injured when a commercial fishing boat ran aground off Point Pleasant Beach.

The Coast Guard responded to a call for help from the 77-foot Captain Gavin about a mile south of the Manasquan Inlet at 5:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Petty Officer 1st Class Nick Ameen said there were three aboard.



Ameen said there is no apparent damage to the vessel and no signs of pollution.

The Coast Guard will continue to monitor the situation from a boat and from the beach while officials discuss the best way to free the vessel.
