Sailboat runs aground in Hawaii

The 41-foot sailboat Kuuliealoha II ran aground shortly before midnight on Sept. 13 near Makapu’u Beach east of Honolulu. The yacht sustained serious damage, and its fuel tanks — containing roughly 20 gallons of diesel fuel — were missing due to the grounding, the Coast Guard said. Authorities did not find sheening around the yacht, at least initially, and nobody on board was hurt. The cause of the incident was not disclosed.
