      STURGEON BAY -  High winds in Sturgeon Bay delayed the launching of a new super yacht from ship builder Palmer Johnson on Monday.

      The 150-foot yacht was scheduled to launch from Bay Shipbuilding and be towed into position at the Centerpoint Marina nearby.

      Tug boats tried to get the super sport yacht in position, but gusty winds prevailed.

      Palmer Johnson officials say they will try again Tuesday.
