The small vessel is dug into the sand as it leans to one side on the beach just north of Atlantic Avenue.

It’s not far from a well-known Delray Beach bar, Sandbar, located on State Road A1A.

“Talk about ‘Valet your boat,’” said Tom Judge, a retired Delray Beach police officer who was walking the beach with his daughter Wednesday.

Officials were still investigating the circumstances of the boat’s grounding; it was discovered at 11:38 a.m. Tuesday at 800 S. Ocean Boulevard.
