The 46 meter long high speed ferry Bravest ran aground near Middletown, New Jersey. The ferry was en route to Belford, New Jersey when it veered to close to shore during an extremely low tide. The ferry had mooved out of the center of the navigation channel to allow another vessel to go by. No passengers were on board at the time of the grounding. A tugboat was able to pull the vessel free a few hours later. There was no damage and the ferry proceeded back to port. The vessel returned to service on the same day. No injuries or pollution released.
