BAYONNE - Police were investigating a boat anchored in a shallow cove between Ratkowski Park and Stephen Gregg County Park on Friday morning. The outboard motor boat with a float along side of it was in dangerously shallow water with tide going on, threatening to strand the boat.
Boats rarely use this particular cove because of the lack of depth. Bayonne police officers who responded to the scene attempted to get an angle on the boat to see if someone was inside on the floor, but appeared that the boat was empty. The investigation is still ongoing.
