Tim Allen’s yacht leaks fuel into Michigan marina, shuts down water over holiday weekend

Tim Allen’s yacht could have used a little home improvement.

The “Toy Story” actor accidentally shut down a Michigan marina over the July 4 weekend when he pulled his yacht into the dock and trailed leaking fuel all the way in.

Between 30 and 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled into the Northport water Sunday afternoon, causing officials to close the marina for about 12 hours and a nearby beach for a day, according to MLive.

A “little sheen on the surface” remains Wednesday morning, Leelanau Township Fire Chief Hugh Cook told the Daily News, but he said that should be gone within a few days.

“We did lose a small family of ducklings but there should not be any long-lasting effects to wildlife or boats,” Cook told The News.

Allen, 69, noticed the fuel filter gasket pop out when he rounded a corner in the bay but didn’t see the leak until someone pointed it out, he told the Traverse City Record-Eagle.

A spokesperson for the actor did not immediately return a request for comment from The News Wednesday but he will be paying for the cleanup of the water, according to the Record-Eagle.

Allen, who was born in Denver, grew up in Michigan after his mother remarried.
