Ky. restaurant gone adrift to head back to shore

Crews are working to move a floating restaurant back to shore after it partially tore loose from its moorings and stranded more than 80 people on board for hours.

The U.S. Coast Guard, Waterfront restaurant owner Jack Ruby and Covington city officials developed a plan on Saturday to move the restaurant, which broke free on the Ohio River late Friday night.

Rob Carlisle of Villa Hills, whose company C&B Marine co-owns one of the towboats, said Sunday he didn't expect them to start the move until noon. He said they'd be done by the afternoon.

Coast Guard Lt. Rob Reinhart told The Kentucky Enquirer that the plan involves placing a towboat on each end of the restaurant and pushing it upstream to the old Covington Landing.
