(Newser) – Dave Henneberry had the bizarre luck of owning the boat that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev chose to hide inside during the Boston bomber manhunt. The boat, riddled with bullets and now a key piece of evidence, may be out of commission for good, but that doesn't mean Henneberry won't be hitting the water this summer. Two separate online sites have sprung up to buy the Watertown resident a new boat, reports the Daily News. This one at Crowdtilt.com had nearly $8,000 as of this afternoon, and a Facebook page soliciting donations had more than 600 likes, although no monetary numbers.
