Attack on derelict boats under way with new ordinance

BOLIVIA — Brunswick County commissioners approved an ordinance Monday night giving the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office authority to deal with abandoned and derelict boats.

A half-submerged shrimp boat below the Holden Beach Bridge may be the face of the abandoned boats in the county, but commissioner Pat Sykes said she pushed for the ordinance because of complaints of sailboats clogging an inlet off Fish Factory Road in Southport.
