MWCD to auction abandoned boats July 28

A total of 20 boats and other equipment which have been abandoned by their previous owners will be sold at auction by the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District.

The boats, which range from sailboats to houseboats and many of which include trailers and other amenities, will be sold during an auction July 28 (Saturday) at 1 p.m. at Atwood Lake Marina West. The marina is located at 9298 Atwood Lake Rd., Mineral City.

MWCD rangers must go through a lengthy process to attempt to contact the owners of record of the boats before they can be made available for auction.

Many of the boats to be auctioned have been sitting in storage at area marinas for a few years.

The auction will be conducted by Dutton Auction & Realty Co. of Navarre.
