February 10, 1989|From United Press International

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. — Federal authorities had hoped for a hefty sum Thursday when they auctioned off a 65-foot fishing trawler seized in an international drug-smuggling case.

They got $10.

"As far as I know, it is lowest bid for a ship in Rhode Island since the state entered the Union in 1790," U.S. Marshal Donald Wyatt said.
