KIHEI, Maui >> An old Navy landing craft is stuck on a Maui beach.

The Maui News reports it broke loose from its mooring line and washed onto Sugar Beach in north Kihei Tuesday.

The state Department of Land and Natural Resources says strong winds and currents prevented the company that owns the vessel from moving it Wednesday.

Vessel owner Maui Fresh Fish, LLC is expected to again attempt to pull it off the beach at the next high tide early today. 

A company representative met with the Coast Guard and determined there was no leaking oil or fuel. 

There were no reports of coral damage.
