Leonard Dagit, Jr., of Egg Harbor Township, stands at the wooden steering wheel inside the Belle Miracle Ann paddle-wheel steamer. Dagit and his brother co-own the boat, which is currently situated in the bay beside his restaurant, Back Bay Barbecue & Grill at Anchorage Poynte. Dagit hopes to repair the boat and turn it into an event venue or an extension of the restaurant.
