Days after storm, British boat still beached at Oak Island


OAK ISLAND, NC (WWAY) -- Salvage crews at Oak Island have their hands full trying to remove a sailboat from the beach.

A town spokesman says Ken Oldham and his wife, who had sailed to the area from England, were anchored near the Oak Island Pier when Tropical Storm Andrea hit snapping their anchor line.

Oak Island Water Rescue rescued the couple, who are now working to get their boat back into the water.
