POINT PLEASANT - A 70-foot Atlantic Traveler that overturned in the Manasquan inlet on the border of Monmouth and Ocean counties yesterday morning may be stuck there until next week. The boat's diesel fuel is leaking into the inlet, which flows into the ocean. The Coast Guard is working on finding a way to tow the boat without making the spill worse.

The Coast Guard says it may keep the inlet closed until the salvage is complete.
