Thankfully, the fuel leak was contained within the Northport Village Marina, Harbormaster Bill Rosemurgy told the Traverse City Record-Eagle. The marina is located in Grand Traverse Bay, about 30 miles north of Traverse City.

What happened to Tim Allen's yacht?
Allen didn’t know his yacht was spewing fuel into the water until people on the dock alerted him to the issue, Leelanau Township fire chief Hugh Cook told the Record-Eagle. The leak was reportedly due to a problem with the boat’s fuel filter that caused fuel to fill the engine compartment and then get pumped out into the marina.
Allen told the source that he believes the leak occurred after a fuel filter gasket popped while he was rounding a corner. Despite the inconvenience, Allen was adamant about getting the marine back open.
