OCEAN CITY, N.J. - A boat captain may be losing sleep after his boat was unexpectedly beached on Tuesday after heavy downpours and high winds.

Stranded right here on Ocean City's beach, the captain was ironically on his way to a boat show when heavy gusts of winds caused major problems for the two boat captains on board.

The conditions proved to be dangerous when high surf grounded a brand-new, center console duel engine fishing boat on North Side Beach."Very treacherous.

I mean, it’s very windy, high surf," said one boat captain on board. RELATED: 'My pride is hurt': Man's new sailboat washes up on Ocean City beach after hitting rock jettyOcean City officials say a second boat got stranded near Malibu Beach, a couple miles away.
