The coroner identified the man as Keith Sullivan, who was reported missing on January 12, 2014.

US Coast Guard officials said they were called to the scene at about 1:50 p.m.

His boat the 'Saga' was anchored near the town clock on Front Street and officials said he was living on his boat.

An autopsy performed at MUSC showed the cause of death as drowning.

The coroner ruled the death accidental.
