River Maiden, a 59-foot steel boat registered to Max Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy, sank June 12 into the north slip of Lake Michigan, according to the Coast Guard.

It's still there.

More than two months ago, on that Saturday, the Coast Guard received a report about 10:30 a.m. that the boat had gone under. When the marine safety unit arrived about an hour later, River Maiden had completely capsized, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Kennedy and U.S. Steel, which owns the slip, were issued a "Notice of Federal Interest for a Hazardous Material Incident." Dan McCaffery, president of McCaffery Interests, a partner with U.S. Steel, said the company was only issued a copy of Kennedy's notice.

Kennedy, who could not be reached for comment, flew in from Los Angeles as soon as he heard that the boat had capsized to ensure that there was no "environmental leakage of any sort," McCaffery said. He also said he heard that Kennedy ordered a barge to lift the boat out of the water around Labor Day.

"I really think it's under control," McCaffery said, "but it has taken a bit too long."
