After spending more than a year abandoned in the Choctawhatchee Bay near an Indian Trail home, the sailboat JoJo has been removed from the water.

City Code Enforcement Manager David Bazylak told The Log that the city didn't take part in removing the derelict boat.

"We reported it months ago," he said. "Maybe they finally found the owner."

The vessel is the only derelict currently flagged in Destin waters. Earlier this month, The Log chronicled residentsí efforts to get the boat removed They worried that it was a safety hazard, especially at night.
