National  Park Service spokeswoman Christie Vanover said Monday no one was on the boat, and no injuries are reported. “(The boat) began taking on water around 9:30 a.m. and sunk within minutes,” Vanover said in a statement.Newton’s sister-in-law, Tricia McCrone, confirms that the 1996 Skipperliner named Rendezvous belongs to Newton. McCrone said Newton and his wife were vacationing out of the country when the boat sank Friday.
