Stranded boats in Jarvis Creek one step closer to being removed

Posted: Updated:
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

The two shrimp boats stuck on Jarvis Creek are one step closer to being removed.

Hilton Head Island Town Council voted to make a budget amendment to transfer about $175,000 over to a demolition and removal account to be used for removing the boars.

The town manager tells us they are getting ready to hire a contractor and it will take roughly 45 days to remove the boars.

Both boats ran aground in August.
