Christmas Eve storm brings bad luck to local boat owner

A 46 ft. juniper boat, the LEO IV broke loose of its moorings and ran aground at Hogtown Bayou during the high winds of a storm on Christmas Eve.

Owner Jeremy Larnce had just sold the boat, and is waiting for a southern wind to push it loose so he can relocate the vessel to Freeport Shipyard.

“It was bad timing all the way around, and I’ve had trouble finding help because of the holidays” said Jeremy as he expressed concern about moving the vessel.

Jeremy plans to relocate the 30-year-old boat as soon as possible.
