As you'll remember, the Captain JP was one of a handful of boats and other vessels dislodged by ice jams and sent floating recklessly down the Hudson.

The boat slammed into the Congress Street Bridge before hitting and coming to a rest under the Livingston Avenue Rail Bridge.

The crashes caused more than $100,000 in damages.

Fortunately, the owner is insured.

NewsChannel 13 is told no major events on the boat had to be canceled or rescheduled.

Hear from a ship captain about the work needed to get the ship back in shape, by watching the video of Dan Levy's story.
