A fishing boat that the Coast Guard believed sank in the Gulf of Mexico on Dec. 28 washed onto Ponte Vedra Beach on Sunday.
The 33-foot boat was presumed lost. Its owner, Curly Egan, told a Fort Myers television station at the time, "It ain't lucky. ... Damn thing tried to kill me."
Pam Harrington, who reported the boat was grounded on the beach behind her home, speculated that the boat took a ride on the Gulf Stream and was washed ashore overnight.
"If boats could talk, it would probably have an interesting story," Harrington said.
Authorities said that the boat's owner would be responsible for removing the boat from the beach.
