Most of the year there maybe two to three dozen boats moored off East Beach. That's to save slip fees. The winter storms clean them out. Some go south, some go north, some sub-lease slips in the harbor.
Those with absentee owners can end up on the beach.
My friend Jerry told me that the Harbor patrol came out early Tuesday evening and rousted him: they wanted to move him off his boat before the midnight storm forced them to come out and rescue him in the dark.
Jerry said his boat was fine: The rains washed all of the sea lion poop totally off his boat!
There's those silver linings in them there clouds, eh?
