Investigators moved Slip Away II, the boat made famous after a Boston bombing suspect hid out there before a standoff with police left the boat riddled with bullet holes, to an evidence storage facility.

The 24-foot Seabird became even more famous after a Crowdtilt campaign sought to collect enough funds to buy a new boat for owner David Henneberry, whose call to authorities led to the arrest of 19-year-old suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

The Brunswick Boat Group announced a large donation to the fund and CEO Dustan McCoy said the company would also donate to the One Fund Boston, which will be allocated to the 264 wounded victims of the bombings and families of the four killed, including an MIT policeman who was allegedly shot by the bombing suspects.

The boat was processed for evidence at the scene and then moved on Friday to an undisclosed FBI facility for storage, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller told CNBC on Saturday.
