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.

“Dennis has been advised to lawyer up for a fight of some kind,” his friend Don Rypinski told the newspaper. “We are still hopeful that we can work with the city personnel directly and mitigate the situation by agreeing on a mutually acceptable plan and time frame for the boat's completion — at least to the point of being safely moved."
