There's some uncertainty over what to do about that beached fishing boat in Half Moon Bay.

Initially, the plan was to tow the boat away once a high enough tide was able to lift it. However, the boat's owner is now considering having it cut in half and hauled to a place where it can be reassembled.

The Phyllis J ran aground Tuesday after it capsized during a crabbing trip. No one was hurt.
