Crews begin removing abandoned boats in SC’s Folly Beach

June 26, 2019

FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (AP) — Folly Beach has begun removing more than a dozen abandoned boats in its waterways.

On Monday, crews started removing 14 boats and one large piece of marine debris out of the water.

WCSC-TV reports the $110,000 project is expected to take two months, with some removals being as easy as towing a boat to shore, while others will require a lot more time and need more equipment.

Last month, the contract for the work was awarded to Mainstream.

City officials expect the work to be done by mid-August.

The City of Charleston is also set to remove five abandoned boats in its waterways costing a total of $50,000. That work will also be done over the next few months.
