State officials said a 35-foot sailboat from Canada is expected to be removed from a reef off the coast of Lahaina, along with its 150 gallons of fuel.
District Boating Manager Nicholas Giaconi of the state Department of Land and Natural Resources said officials are asking surfers, swimmers and others to stay away from the boat during salvage operationgs, which are scheduled to begin Saturday morning.
The vessel, called the Baidarka, got stuck on the reef this week after breaking free from its dock at the Lahaina Yacht Club.
