Residents: Boat owners torch boats, end expenses
Residents say boat owners in the City Island area who are unable to maintain their water vehicles sometimes abandon them or set them on fire.
Neighbors are now concerned over the danger these boat owners are causing on waterways. Some speculate boats are being set on fire for insurance claims, since owners are finding it difficult to afford them.
Residents of City Island are now calling for strict penalties for boat owners who abandon their boats.
