A dispute over a resident's long-term boat restoration project appears to be headed to court after the Newport Beach, Calif., city council decided to pursue a court order to get the boat moved.

Dennis Holland's house has a century-old, 72-foot boat called Shawnee in the yard. The restoration project is years away from completion, and Holland has been accruing fines since February, the Orange County Register reported.
