The L.A. Times reports on a heated dispute in Newport Beach, CA that centers around Dennis Holland's attempt to refurbish 72-foot wooden ship in his front yard:
The court order is the latest development in a long-running conflict between Dennis Holland, some of his neighbors and city officials, who sued the 65-year-old resident in an effort to have the vintage ship removed. Holland now has until April 30 to remove the ship from his Holiday Road home, or face fines of up to $1,000 a day, or possibly jail time, according to Deputy City Atty. Kyle Rowen.
For more pictures of the boat and a video about the restoration process, see here.
