VIDEO/PHOTOS: Thirteen boat owners were granted access to Lahaina Harbor on Monday to check on their vessels after a deadly wildfire swept through the town five weeks ago. After receiving permission from Maui County and the US Coast Guard, officers from the DLNR Division of Conservation and Resources Enforcement escorted the owners, in two groups, to the harbor. “Most of the 13 boats, as well as the pier they’re tied to, appear to be largely untouched by the flames of Aug. 8,” according to a state Department of Land and Natural Resources news release. “One boat, the Reel Luckey, the last name of its owners, is a metaphor for the line of white vessels, still afloat in stark contrast to the blackened landscape, buildings, and harbor structures.”
