POINT PLEASANT BEACH, New Jersey — The fishing boat Norma-K II sank at its dock in Point Pleasant Beach.

A crew member found the 51-year-old vessel partially submerged on Sunday.

The 65-foot vessel has been mostly idle for the past six or seven years and its owner was looking for a buyer.

Norma Keller tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/1KK7iBT ) she suspects ice and an unusually low tide may have damaged her namesake.

Keller wants to try to repair the boat.

She lost another boat in her fleet six months ago when the 70-foot Miss Point Pleasant II sank at the same dock. That vessel could not be salvaged.
