The commercial fishing boat Alicia J. is apparently grounded off the end of West Ave. in Sayville, about 300 yards outside of Sayville Marina. I say apparently because at this time it can’t be determined if the boat ran aground or became stuck in the ice. There is no visible anchor and no one aboard. It is clearly a navigational hazard at this time but the ice seems fresh enough that a tow should not be a huge problem.
Suffolk County Police are aware of the situation and we will update if we get more information.
This may be the Alica J based at the Commercial Dock in Hampton Bays. A story about the boat can be found here.
