Landlocked yacht draws attention on 1-20


A yacht owned by a Missouri man is having a hard time getting from Alabama to Missouri.

George Morris says he bought the boat in Talladega but several weeks later, he's only gotten as far as the Brompton exit off of I-20 because his trailer's axles keep breaking.

Morris says the boat weighs 20,000 pounds. Another trailer is scheduled to arrive Tuesday morning and should be able to hold the weight.

Meanwhile, he's allowed a few people to sign the boat, which he's renamed "2nd Hand Lion."
