The paper reports:
The Newburgh Fire Department was initially called in to help pump out the leak, according to Fire Chief Robert Bain. "But we told them we couldn't help. We had pumps for basements, not a 300-by-70-foot ship."
The ship was bought at auction in 2009 for less than 4 percent of its original price. There were plans to turn it into a dorm, or a lobster restaurant, but they never came to fruition.
