That's right, the rough winds and waves from the powerful storm pushed the boat nearly two miles down the Neuse River.
Wayne Mills said a friend reached out after seeing the boat on Facebook, but he just couldn't believe it.
"My friend sent me a Facebook (sic) ... and said, 'This looks a lot like your boat,'" Mills told Angenette Levy who was helping report for WCTI. "I didn't believe it because there's not a Marriott across the street, so when another friend called and said, 'Yeah, I saw it on Facebook,' so I came down here to look, and sure enough, it was mine."
Mills said before the storm hit he was trying to sell the nearly 48-foot boat.
It appears the vessel was still in good condition.
