PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- A boat that sank in the Gulf of Mexico in December has reappeared - on a beach on the east coast of Florida.

The "Lucky Dog" went down about 170 miles off Madeira Beach, which is near St. Petersburg, around December 27th.

It appears to have gotten into the Loop Current, which runs around the southern tip of Florida, and made its way to Ponte Vedra Beach, near St. Augustine.

The boat was spotted in the surf Sunday night. It's now sitting on the beach behind Pam Harrington's home.

She said she's been told the vessel's owners are responsible for removing it from the beach.

After the boat went down, the two men aboard spent the night in a life raft before being rescued by a U.S. Coast Guard crew out of Fort Myers Beach.
