Celebrating Earth Day: Honoring Environmental Stewardship in Boating, Sailing and Fishing

As the world gears up to celebrate Earth Day on April 22, communities, organizations and individuals across the globe are reminded of the importance of environmental stewardship and sustainability. Earth Day, which originated in the United States in 1970, has since grown into a worldwide movement dedicated to raising awareness about environmental issues and promoting actions to protect our planet. California boasts one of the nation’s most bustling recreational boating scenes, thanks to its extensive 1,200-mile coastline, numerous navigable rivers, lakes, and the expansive

Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. These abundant waterways allow the state’s boating enthusiasts to enjoy their leisure time on the water.

Earth Day came to be through the e orts of Sen. Gaylord Nelson, who, inspired by the anti-war protests of the 1960s, envisioned a grassroots demonstration to raise public awareness about environmental concerns. The rst Earth Day on April 22, 1970, saw millions of Americans coming together to rally for environmental protection, leading to the creation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the passage of landmark environmental legislation such as the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act

On the Waterline with Jaiar

and Endangered Species Act.

Today, Earth Day serves as a reminder of the ongoing need to address environmental challenges, including those faced by the boating, sailing and shing industries. With millions worldwide enjoying recreational activities on waterways, it’s crucial to recognize the impact of these activities on the marine environment and take steps to minimize negative e ects.

In recent years, the boating industry has increasingly embraced sustainable practices to reduce its environmental footprint. From adopting cleaner propulsion technologies to implementing eco-friendly manufacturing processes, boat manufacturers and marinas are working towards greener solutions. Additionally, initiatives such as boat recycling programs and e orts to reduce marine debris help protect our oceans and waterways for future generations.

ANSWER: Boat warranties vary considerably between manufacturers and whether you are buying a new boat or a used boat it’s a good idea to spend some time reading the ne print.

Unlike a car warranty, the warranty for your boat will generally cover only the components that the manufacturer was directly responsible for building and installing. In many cases this will be limited to the structural integrity of the hull and deck and certain parts that are actually manufactured by the boat builder. Important equipment such as engines and generators are likely to be covered separate-

Preparing for Hurricane Safety in or out of Mexican Waters

This topic may seem a little bit early, but NOAA says that the early part of summer 2024 in the Eastern Pacific (April, May, early June) is still being affected by a lingering El Nino – the more dangerous warm phase that feeds tropical storms in Mexican coastal and offshore waters and the Sea of Cortez. In February, the sea surface temperatures there were 2.9°F above normal.

So, for recreational boaters who are still in Mexican waters at this time, it’s not too early to think about hurricane preparations. “The time to repair the roof is when the sun is shining,” said President J.F.K.


Migrating out of Mexican waters before hurricanes arrive usually means facing the 720-n.m. northbound route outside of the Baja California Peninsula.

Every year and month present different wind and sea conditions, but look at the Coast Pilot, and you’ll see that northbound boats generally must “bash” into t he prevailing northwesterly winds and southbound current. Capt. Jim Elfers’ humorously instructive book “The Baja Bash” details how to safely bash north up Baja with the least amount of pain and suffering.

Personally, I’ve done the Baja Bash with my husband a couple dozen times while delivering yachts. Some trips are unpleasant and slow, but those blessedly “glassed off” conditions are possible too. The Baja Bash requires close attention to weather forecasts in order to pick the least bad weather windows. (We’ll discuss the Baja Bash in more detail in the next issue.)

Alternately, some boaters opt to have their vessels moved north (or south) of hurricane alley. Smaller yachts can be trucked to almost anywhere in the U.S. by either Cabrales Boat Yard in Puerto Penasco, Sonora, or by Marina Seca at Marina San Carlos, Sonora. They all use special hydraulic trailers that conform to the hull shape. Ask about your boat’s height, length and hull shape.

Larger yachts can either get craned aboard a SevenStar Yacht Transport ship, or float on and off a DYT Yacht Transport ship. Check their schedules, itineraries and prices. Popular pick up and pick up and drop off ports on the Pacific are La Paz, Ensenada, Victoria, and Golfito, Costa Rica and Panama.

Migrating south of hurricane alley is another reasonable option for many longrange cruising yachts and big sportfishing boats. They summer over at comfy s tops along the 1,100-n.m. coast from Guatemala to the Panama Canal.

Cruisers’ summer hangouts in El Salvador are Bahia del Sol and Barillas. Marina Puesta del Sol is about the best spot in Nicaragua. In Costa Rica, there’s Marina Papagallo, Marina Flamingo, Marina Los Sueños, Marina Pez Vela at Quepos and several less expensive spots

in Bahia Golfito. In Panama, check out Boca Chica in the Gulf of Chiriqui, also Bahia Honda and Isla Cebaco. In Panama Bay there’s Marina Vista Mar, the Perlas Islands and Marina Flamingo. All are rainy season favorites with refugees from hurricane season.


Summering over and commuter cruising both became possible thanks to more and better marinas and to good airport connectivity between many Mexican ports and the U.S. and Canada. To summer over, it’s best (1.) to reserve a marina slip for the whole summer, if possible, (2.) to live aboard until the heat gets too oppressive, (3.) prepare the boat for your summer absence (See below.), and then (4.) fly away home or to cooler latitudes for short or long periods.

Marinas in Mexico offer generous discounts for longer stays, such as a 1-, 3- or 6-month reservation. But pick a marina with beefy breakwaters, a good record for hurricane safety and a staff that will contract to look after your boat in your absence.

Some marinas have knowledgeable staffers who will go aboard daily to check your bilges and batteries, while others might put a local captain on board to keep your bridge and cabins aired out and to button it up if rain threatens.

Draw up a list of exact duties you need performed for your boat in your absence; discuss it and sign an agreement with your summer marina manager. Maybe bring your nephew down to boat sit for you.

Before you depart, make copies of important documents to take home with you. For insurance purposes, take lots of pictures of your boat in its “before hurricane” condition. Hopefully you’ll never need them.


Are you staying aboard? Start securing your boat yourself as much as possible at the first “hurricane watch” (winds 74 mph or higher are possible within 48 hours). Maybe hire a marina staffer to help.

Charge up the house batteries and drain the bilge; you’ll probably lose dock power but will want to leave bilge pumps running during the storm.

Prepare a Go Bag: change of dry clothes, passports, documents, flash lights, power bars, water and medical supplies, because the town might be seriously damaged.

Remove all gear on deck that’s not bolted down: sails and rigging, dinghy and outboard, solar panels, Starlink antenna, canvas dodger, barbecue, jerry jugs, cushions, chairs, ice chests, etc. Flailing sails and rigging often damage neighbor boats, dock boxes, power panels, etc. Dock stairs can blow sky high. Stow it all ashore before the first “hurricane warning” (hurricane conditions will definitely happen within 36 hours).

Set your boat’s four dock lines and at least two spring lines, using ¾- to 1-inch

line, doubled up if in doubt. Secured reliable chafe gear in place where any lines might chafe after hours of heavy wave action. Fender the hull with every fender you’ve got, and hang them with a couple tight clove hitches. Avoid granny knots that prevent repositioning quickly. Fender whatever could puncture the hull if the dock finger breaks loose, tips or sinks.

Below decks, imagine you’re entering heavy seas. Dog down windows and port lights. Gather sponges and towels near places that sometimes leak. Fix any latches that might let drawers or lockers come open. Re-stow that top heavy table lamp, restack those heavy paint cans. Cushion the crystal. Use expansion bars in the fridge to corral heavy jugs on a top shelf or big bottles in an overhead locker.

Before 50-knot gusts arrive, grab your Go Bag and step off the boat to hunker down ashore. According to the National Hurricane Center, more than half the deaths in Hurricane Hugo 1989 were boaters, all drowning while attempting to save their boats.


Set the storm anchor where you have room to safely swing 360°, away from other boats that could drag down onto

you. Rig a spare anchor to drop off the bow or forward quarter if you start drag. Hourly, plot the hurricane’s closest point of approach to your anchorage. Set the radar’s perimeter alarm to mark the nearest rocks or shoreline, and watch the depth sounder for any significant change not related to tide.

ly by the manufacturers of those items. Similarly, marine electronics, stoves, propellers, and almost everything else that is important to the operation of a boat will be covered separately.

The warranty documents will answer a lot of important questions, including (1) what is covered by the warranty (or warranties)? (2) What is the time period of the warranty coverage? (3) What are the claims procedures? And (4) may the warranty be transferred from the original owner to a subsequent owner?

State and Federal consumer protection laws require manufacturers and dealers to process claims promptly and in good faith. However, procedures for making a warranty claim will di er between manufacturers, and there are generally no legal minimum standards for the items that must be covered by warranty. The warranty is basically viewed as a marketing feature which should be considered by a prospective purchaser when evaluating the other features of the boat.

Assuming a particular failure is covered, the claim process under a boat warranty may nonetheless be very frustrating. Most of us are familiar with the “Lemon Law” that protects the buyer of a new car from warranty frustration, but the Lemon Law does not protect the buyer of a boat.

As the buyer of a “consumer good,” a boat buyer in California is protected by a body of law known as the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act (California Civil Code sec. 1790). The Song-Beverly Act enforces manufacturer’s warranties on all consumer goods sold in California. It covers everything from computers to refrigerators, and it does cover the purchase of a new boat. Under this law, a manufacturer who fails to x a problem covered by a warranty after a “reasonable number of attempts,” must either replace the product or reimburse the buyer for the purchase price, less the amount “directly attributable to use by the buyer” prior to the discovery of the problem (depreciation). Failure to comply with the law will subject the manufacturer to strict penalties.

The Song-Beverly Act has one glaring problem for the buyer of a new boat: It fails to consider that a boat is a complicated machine, with a long list of complex systems that may be subject to failure. A manufacturer will be in compliance with the Song-Beverly Act if it repairs each of those failed systems within a “reasonable time,” notwithstanding that it may have deprived the owner of the use of the boat for many months of accumulated down time during the repairs, and notwithstanding that there is no de nition for what amounts to a “reasonable time.” Song-Beverly may work ne for a toaster or a television, but it does not adequately protect the buyer of a new boat.

In contrast, new car buyers are in a much better position. California’s “Lemon Law” is set forth in the Tanner Consumer Protection Act (Civil Code sec. 1793.22), but the scope of the law is expressly limited to “new motor vehicles.” The Tanner Act o ers a number of protections to the buyer of a new car, including

a requirement that the manufacturer replace the car or refund the purchase price if, during the rst 18 months or 18,000 miles, the car is out of service due to warranty repairs for a cumulative total of more than 30 calendar days. Further, under the Tanner Act the new car buyer is entitled to a refund of the full purchase price without any deduction for depreciation.

Most of the 50 states have some sort of “lemon law” protection, and the law is almost always limited to buyers of new cars. Exceptions may exist, however, and the best approach for a boat owner who is either concerned about the warranty prior to buying the boat or concerned with a continuing problem is to contact an experienced attorney for advice on

their particular case.

If you are visiting Newport Beach for the first time, make sure to enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk on Newport Harbor, taking in the scenery across the harbor and the long line of beautiful yachts tied to the quay.

One of the first waterside restaurants you will see along Via Oporto is Lido Bottle

Works, where light, savory, gourmet fare is the order of the day. As you peruse the menu, start with their mint avocado ceviche or cucumbers in herbed yogurt and basil oil while you sip a Peninsula Margarita or a Shore Break, an effervescent drink with Kombucha.

If you’re stopping by Via Oporto for weekend brunch, enjoy a crispy jidori chicken sandwich or Spanish chorizo hash with poblano hollandaise and guajillo aioli. The dinner menu will entice you with such house specialties as curried beef meatballs, braised rabbit pici, steelhead trout or Mary’s Chicken with parsnip puree and braised treviso. Your choice from a robust wine list will tantalize your tastes and round out your dining experience.

Got kids? They will love the Fun Zone, which is situated a bit farther down Balboa Peninsula. Established in 1936, the Fun Zone features an iconic, big, colorful ferris wheel, the Coconut Climb and other attractions. If you are really daring, strap yourself into Ocean Motion, a trampoline that lifts you up into the air to spin like a wheel – right next to the water’s edge!

Feeling hungry? After you have had your fill of fun, choose from one of the numerous restaurants sharing a spectacular view of the harbor. Pizza Pete’s can meet your demand for flavor with a wide assortment of gourmet toppings. Also on the menu are hot dogs and a variety of sandwiches, all at reasonable prices.

Only a few yards away is Azar’s Pizza, which is also well priced and prepared to bake your pizza with a blend of your choice of toppings. Azar’s will whet your appetite with aromas of pepperoni, fresh onions, bell pepper and a blend of cheeses just waiting to be baked to your pleasure.

After a day of boogie boarding at the beach and strolling along the boardwalk, choose from one of several indoor restaurants lining the dock adjacent to the Fun Z one. Newport Landing Restaurant & Oyster Bar, a favorite haunt among yachties, has Stella Artois, Kona Brewing and a few IPAs on tap, plus a wide selection of bottled beer. Along with the standard well drinks, Newport Landing features a list of signature cocktails, including their Organic Cucumber Cooler, Skrewball Frankie with Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey and Frangelico Liqueur and the Big Kahuna with dark rum, Sauza tequila and Grand Marnier.

Newport Landing’s menu opens with a creative list of appetizers, including coconut shrimp, ahi poke nachos and blue point oysters. Entrees include several pasta dishes, salads, burgers, sandwiches, tacos and rice bowls.

Easily the most commanding presence along the Newport Harbor waterfront is the Balboa Pavilion, established in 1905

and housing a number of businesses, the most prominent of which is Harborside Restaurant and Grand Ballroom. If there is a wedding occurring anywhere in Newport Beach, there is a good chance the reception will be held at Harborside, a popular venue for major events, f rom wedding receptions to corporate gatherings.

Allow yourself several minutes to peruse Harborside’s long list of appetizers, salads, dinner entrees and desserts. For openers, try the Caprese skewers with tomato, basil and mozzarella or one of my personal favorites, shaved roast beef canapes with creamy horseradish.

Harborside has separate buffet and plated menus for both lunch and dinner. Plated dinner selections include grilled Hawaiian chicken, grilled tenderloin tips and vegetable skewers, grilled swordfish with tropical fruit salsa buerre blanc and petite filet mignon with Canadian lobster tail. If you are planning a large gathering, particularly a wedding reception, contact Harborside well in advance to secure a date and select the desired menu items.

If you ask the local “old timers” where they go for comfort food in a casual setting in Newport Beach, they will invariably place The Crab Cooker at the top of their

Navigating the Seas of DIY: A Sailor’s Guide to Solar Panel Installation

In the world of sailing, mastering the art of boat maintenance is as essential as hoisting the sails themselves. For seasoned sailors and newcomers alike, embarking on a DIY project to enhance their vessel can be both rewarding and practical. From routine checks to transformative upgrades, here’s a comprehensive look at a DIY project that sailors can undertake to ensure their boat is shipshape and seaworthy.

Project Title: Installing a Solar Panel System

With a growing emphasis on sustainability and energy e ciency, installing a solar panel system on a boat has become an increasingly popular DIY project among sailors. Not only does it o er the convenience of generating electricity on board, but it also reduces reliance on traditional power sources and minimizes environmental impact.

Marine solar panels are crafted to endure harsh marine conditions, using corrosion-resistant materials like aluminum frames and tempered glass. They’re compact and lightweight, tting well on boats with limited space and can even ex to t curved surfaces. Products such as the 140 Watt Flexible Marine Solar Panel from Sun Powered Yachts o er 140 Watt Semi- exible Marine Solar Panels that are ideal for mounting on a bimini top or a curved deck surface. These panels o er diverse mounting options, with specialized hardware for secure attachment. Marine Solar panels feature enhanced waterproo ng, often meeting IP67 or IP68 standards and include safety features like overcharge protection. Across the board, marine solar panels ensure reliable and e cient power generation for boats and yachts, contributing to sustainability and energy independence.

Materials Needed:

• Solar panels

• Charge controller

• Battery bank

• Mounting hardware

• Wiring and connectors

• Tools (drill, screwdriver, wire cutters, etc.)

Step-by-Step Guide:

1. Assessment and planning: Begin by assessing your boat›s layout and determining the optimal location for mounting the solar panels. Consider factors such as sun exposure, available space and accessibility. Plan the layout of the system, including

the placement of panels, controller and battery bank.

2. Selecting solar panels: Choose high-quality marine-grade solar panels designed to withstand the rigors of marine environments. Consider factors such as wattage, size and e ciency to meet your energy needs.

3. Mounting solar panels: Install mounting brackets or racks on the boat›s deck or cabin roof using appropriate hardware. Ensure that the panels are securely attached and positioned at an angle to maximize sun exposure.

4.Wiring and connection: Connect the solar panels to the charge controller using suitable wiring and connectors. Follow manufacturer instructions and adhere to proper safety practices. Route wiring neatly and securely, avoiding potential hazards or obstructions.

5. Installing charge controller: Mount the charge controller in a well-ventilated and easily accessible location. Connect the controller to the battery bank, ensuring correct polarity and wiring con guration. Set up any additional features or settings according to manufacturer guidelines.

6. Connecting battery bank: Install the battery bank in a designated compartment or storage area, securely fastening it to prevent movement. Connect the battery bank to the charge controller, fuse box and onboard electrical system.

7. Testing and commissioning: Once the installation is complete, conduct thorough testing to ensure the system functions properly. Verify that solar panels are generating electricity and charging the battery bank e ciently. Test all electrical connections and components for any signs of malfunction or irregularity.

8. Maintenance and monitoring: Regularly inspect and maintain the solar panel system to ensure optimal performance and longevity. Clean panels periodically to remove dirt, debris, or salt buildup. Monitor battery voltage, charge levels and system operation to address any issues promptly.

Embarking on a DIY solar panel installation project can empower sailors to harness the power of the sun and reduce their environmental footprint while enhancing onboard comfort and convenience. With careful planning, proper installation and ongoing maintenance, sailors can navigate the seas with con -

dence and sustainability, one solar panel at a time.

Additional Resources:

• Online tutorials and guides

• Marine electronics retailers

• Boatbuilding and maintenance forums

• Professional marine electricians or technicians for consultation

Editor’s Note:

While the DIY tips and projects outlined in this article o er valuable insights and guidance for boat maintenance, it’s important to emphasize that they are intended as suggestions and recommendations. Every boat is unique, and the scope of maintenance and repair tasks may vary depending on factors such as vessel size, age and con guration.

Boaters should exercise caution and discretion when undertaking DIY projects, especially those involving electrical systems, structural modi cations or other complex tasks. Prioritize safety at all times and consult professional marine technicians or experts when in doubt.

Additionally, The Log recommends that readers conduct thorough research, seek multiple sources of information and consider their own skill level and experience before attempting any DIY projects. While these projects can be rewarding and cost-effective, they should never compromise the safety or integrity of the vessel.

With a 12V system an estimated daily yield for a single 100W panel is potentially around 32-34 amp hours.

Ultimately, the goal of DIY boat maintenance is to empower boaters to take an active role in caring for their vessels and enjoying the maritime lifestyle to the fullest. Whether tackling minor repairs, upgrades or routine maintenance tasks,

SunPower flexible panels are known for power output within their product class. Constructed using lightweight polymer materials, these panels o er convenient transport, installation, and flexibility of up to 30 degrees.

boaters should approach DIY projects with diligence, patience and a commitment to quality craftsmanship.

A Helpful Guide to Preparing Your Boat for Sale

Selling a boat can be a daunting task, but with careful preparation and strategic planning, it can also be a rewarding experience. Whether you’re looking to upgrade t o a new vessel or simply parting ways with your current boat, proper preparation is key to ensuring a smooth and s uccessful sale. From setting the right price to presenting your boat in its best light, here’s a comprehensive guide to preparing for the sale.

Setting the Right Price:

Setting your price, or the acceptable net monetary amount the sale will provide you, is crucial for a positive selling experience. However, it’s essential to be realistic about your expectations. While you may have an emotional attachment to your boat and hope to fetch top dollar for it, getting the full asking price is rare, if not unheard of. You’ll need to make compromises, and you’ll undoubtedly feel a pinch.

To determine a fair asking price, research the market value of similar boats in your area, taking into account factors such as age, condition and features. Websites, forums and online marketplaces specializing in boat sales can provide valuable insights into current market trends and pricing dynamics. Additionally, consider hiring a professional appraiser to assess the value of your boat objectively.

Preparing Your Boat for Sale:

Once you’ve set the right price, it’s time to prepare your boat for sale. Start by giving your vessel a thorough cleaning, both inside and out. Remove any personal belongings and unnecessary items to create a clean and clutter-free environment that will appeal to potential buyers.

Next, inspect your boat for any visible signs of wear and tear, damage or mechanical issues. Address any maintenance or repair issues promptly to ensure t hat your boat is in optimal condition for sale. Consider investing in cosmetic upgrades or improvements, such as fresh paint, upholstery or detailing, to enhance its visual appeal and marketability.

Marketing Your Boat:

To maximize exposure and attract potential buyers, leverage a variety of marketing channels to promote your boat for sale. Create high-quality listings with detailed descriptions, specifications and photographs showcasing your boat’s features and amenities. Utilize online platforms, social media, boating forums and classified ads to reach a broader audience of potential buyers.

Consider enlisting the services of a reputable yacht broker or boat dealer to assist with the sale process. A professional broker can help market your boat effectively, negotiate with buyers on your behalf and handle the paperwork and

logistics associated with the sale, saving you time and effort in the process.

Navigating Negotiations:

As offers start to come in, be prepared to negotiate with potential buyers. Keep in mind that flexibility is key to reaching a mutually beneficial agreement. While you may not get your desired asking price, be open to reasonable offers and willing to make concessions to close the deal.

Consider factors such as the buyer’s financing options, timeline and contingencies when evaluating offers. Be transparent about your boat’s condition, history and any known issues to build

trust and confidence with potential buyers. Work closely with your broker or legal advisor to review and negotiate purchase agreements, contracts and other legal documents to ensure a smooth and legally binding transaction.

Selling your boat can be a challenging process, but with careful preparation, strategic pricing and effective marketing, you can increase your chances of a successful sale. By setting realistic expectations, presenting your boat in its best l ight and navigating negotiations with professionalism and flexibility, you can navigate the sale process with confidence and achieve a positive outcome.


David “Woody” and Linda Wood are together again at sea – fair winds and following seas! Woody peacefully left us on December 3, 2023, after his wife of 38 years, Linda, left on February 22, 2021.

Woody was born and raised in San Diego, graduating with the Sweetwater HS Red Devils class of 1967. He served in the Army National Guard and then worked for San Diego County before moving to SDSU. Linda was born in Denver and moved to San Diego during her college years. They met in the early 1980s on the campus of SDSU.

Woody introduced Linda to sailing, K Dock life, and all things ocean from fishing to racing Nomad. They were founding members of Point Loma Yacht Club (PLYC) and each served as Commodore there. They were also members of Cortez Racing Association and Silver Gate Yacht Club, as well as the Southern California Yachting Association where Linda served as a Director. Linda was a volunteer coordinator for SEA San Diego when the America’s Cup World Series came to the San Diego Harbor. Over the years, Woody went on to be Commodore of Pacific Coast Yachting Association, and they were both past Commodores and current members of the International Order of the Blue Gavel.

In addition to the sea, family and friends (and their pets, all favorites) were oh so important to Woody and Linda. Sports also played a major role in their lives. From the NFL and being longtime Chargers season ticket holders, to an occasional pick up volleyball game,

sports filled their days. They played on many softball and a few OverThe-Line teams, hit the ski slopes and bowling lanes, and enjoyed catching an Aztecs or Padres game. Once they were introduced to golf, Woody and Linda each played every chance they had, on Men’s/Women’s clubs, in tournaments, or just in a round with friends.

Woody and Linda also loved traveling, with many sails to the Channel Islands, cruises to Mexico, drives across America, and adventures in Hawaii, the Bahamas and throughout Europe.

As a microbiologist, Linda knew so much. Woody knew everything, whether sports, current affairs, or Trivial Pursuit challenges. He was a wizard. During a game of Pictionary, the word was “argyle”, and Linda drew a gargoyle. These two belonged together.

PLYC will honor Woody on Opening Day, but otherwise feel free to celebrate their lives as you wish, such as sharing memories with friends and a toast!

Living Afloat: Exploring the Life of a Liveaboard

Living aboard a boat is a lifestyle choice that o ers a unique blend of freedom, adventure and simplicity. For those who embrace this unconventional way of life, the experience can be both rewarding and challenging, as they navigate the waters of self-su ciency and adaptability.

The Pros:

One of the primary attractions of liveaboard life is the unparalleled sense of freedom. Imagine waking up to the gentle rocking of your boat and stepping out onto the deck to watch the sunrise over the water. For liveaboards, this is a daily reality – a connection to nature that is unrivaled by life on land.

Additionally, living on a boat often means living with less. The limited space encourages minimalism, forcing individuals to prioritize the essentials and let go of unnecessary possessions. This simplicity can be liberating, freeing up both physical and mental space for new experiences and adventures.

From secluded anchorages to bustling marinas, liveaboards have the freedom to choose their surroundings, allowing them to tailor their environment to suit their preferences. Whether they crave solitude or seek community, there is a berth waiting for them in harbors around the world.

The Cons:

While the liveaboard lifestyle o ers many bene ts, it also comes with its fair share of challenges. One of the most significant obstacles is the lack of space. Living quarters on a boat are typically compact, requiring individuals to be creative with storage solutions and mindful of clutter.

Another challenge is the constant maintenance required to keep a boat in seaworthy condition. From routine tasks like cleaning and painting to more complex repairs, maintaining a boat can be time-consuming and expensive. Additionally, adverse weather conditions and rough seas can pose safety concerns for liveaboards, requiring them to be vigilant and prepared for unexpected challenges.

Tips for Successful Living Aboard:

Despite the challenges, many liveaboards nd that with careful planning and preparation, the rewards of life on the water far outweigh the drawbacks. Here are some tips for those considering the liveaboard lifestyle:

1. Choose the right boat: Selecting the right vessel is crucial for a successful liveaboard experience. Consider factors such as size, layout and seaworthiness, and prioritize features that align with your lifestyle and needs.

2. Learn the ropes: Before setting sail, invest time in learning the basics of boat handling, navigation and safety protocols. Taking a boating course or seeking guidance from experienced sailors can help build con dence and competence on the water.

3. Embrace minimalism: Living aboard a boat requires downsizing and simplifying your possessions. Prioritize essentials and opt for multi-functional items that maximize space and minimize clutter.

4.Stay flexible: Flexibility is key to adapting to the unpredictable nature of life on the water. Be prepared to adjust your plans in response to changing weather conditions, mechanical issues or unexpected circumstances.

5. Build a support network: Cultivate connections within the liveaboard community and seek support from fellow sailors. Sharing knowledge, resources and camaraderie can enhance the liveaboard experience and provide valuable assistance during challenging times.

The liveaboard lifestyle o ers a unique blend of freedom, adventure and simplicity, along with its fair share of challenges. By embracing the rewards and overcoming the obstacles, liveaboards discover a deep connection to the sea and a sense of ful llment that transcends the con nes of traditional living.

Newport Beach International Boat Show

The 2024 Newport Beach International Boat Show kicks off April 18, with an invitation-only pre-show followed by three days of exhibits open to the public, Friday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

If you are looking to buy the right boat for inland recreation or coastal cruising, this is your chance to get an up-close look at the latest design concepts in vessels competing to offer you the best combination of speed, safety, fun and comfort on the water.

One of the many exhibitors you will want to visit is Nordhavn, a leading builder of offshore luxury motor yachts capable of taking you to Hawaii or around the world. Since its first design, the N46, was delivered in 1989, more than 150 Nordhavns have crossed oceans, eight have circumnavigated the planet and several are known to be currently underway on circumnavigations.

Although it is impossible to show the entire line of yachts at the boat show, models range from 41 feet to 120 feet. Specialty Nordhavn models range from a 56-foot motor sailer to the 75-foot Expedition YachtFisher, not to mention the semi-displacement, 59-foot Coastal Pilot.

Northrop & Johnson, a yacht brokerage offering complete services for its clients and overseeing everything from design and construction to final sale of superyachts, will be onsite to provide aspiring yacht owners with the vessel of their dreams. The minimum size of luxury boat handled by Northrop & Johnson is roughly 100 feet in length, a scope far beyond the trailer ski boats you also will see at the show.

If you are looking to invest in a large, luxury ocean vessel, meet with a Northrop & Johnson representative at the show and start that conversation ultimately leading to the design and construction process of your dream superyacht. The company claims, “We are devoted to delivering yachting services and world-class experiences for our clients.” You may contact a Northrop & Johnson representative at one of their two Southern California locations

list. Located a few blocks away from the Fun Zone, this is the kind of place where you can sit down at a table in your swim trunks, tee shirt and flip flops and enjoy a hot bowl of clam chowder while waiting for your choice of numerous seafood entrees.

The Crab Cooker was established in 1951 by World War II veteran Bob Roubian, who understood the magic of using mesquite for grilling fish. Roubian was known for pointing out, “Good

in San Diego and Newport Beach.

Another key exhibitor, Bayport Yachts, is a dealer specializing in large, openocean, recreation and fishing boats, from the 39 Solar Coupe to the Ocean Class Hybrid 68. Along with connecting buyers with desirable water craft, Bayport also modifies boats to meet the specific needs of individual buyers, from cockpit extensions to the installation of hydraulic cranes and electric dinghy davits.

If you are looking to buy a smaller boat for water skiing or fishing, visit the Cali Marine booth, where a consultant will connect you with your choice of pontoon, ski or wake boat for day cruising and floating picnics. Cali Marine is a dealer for both Mastercraft and Barletta boats. Consider treating yourself and your family to a new Barletta Aria A22UC, a 21-foot pontoon boat complete with a Mercury 200-liter engine, power bimini, reclining seats, LED lighting, USB charging ports, stainless steel transom swim ladder, Hertz marine stereo and more.

Newport Yachts, a “full-service brokerage,” also will be onboard to connect boat buyers with sellers of an unlimited variety of vessels in Southern California and abroad. Rather than rep-

fish is easy to cook if you let its taste shine through over a hot fire with light seasoning.”

Roubian’s appreciation for the value of simplicity in preparing great food has led to The Crab Cooker’s long history of satisfied lunch and dinner guests over the past 73 years. After the original building, a former branch of Bank of America, was demolished to allow construction of a new condominium complex, a new restaurant structure was built in 2021. The building design closely resembles the original, and the owners have retained much of the décor, which is rich in local

resenting strictly yacht builders or dealerships, Newport Yachts represents both sides of the equation, matching buyers with sellers directly, thereby reducing much of the time and cost involved in more complex dealership and showroom operations.

One vessel currently listed by Newport Yachts is the 164-foot luxury superyacht Liberty, which has a cruising range of 4,000 miles and a luxurious interior designed by Rene Van Velden. Amenities include a gym, Wi-Fi, a variety of personal watercraft and at-anchor stabilizers to ensure a comfortable night of sleep in any anchorage.

With all the high-end yacht builders and brokerage firms at the Boat Show, those of us of humbler means also will find plenty to see. If you have found yourself marveling at those long, thick boards people stand on to paddle across calm water, one booth you will want to visit is Pop Board Company, based in Santa Ana.

Pop Board designs, fabricates and distributes its unique designs of stand-up paddle boards to appeal to young, athletic individuals looking for a peaceful, meditative pace of moving through the water

maritime history. And the sign above The Crab Cooker still says, “Don’t look up here!”

Whatever your plans for visiting Newport Beach, you can find parking along side streets in residential areas or at the Balboa Pier Parking Lot, which is a short walk from the Fun Zone and nearby restaurants. The rates are a bit higher from May through September at $3.40 per hour as compared to $2.30 per hour October through April.

For visitors arriving by boat, anchorages are available at various locations

w ithout the hassle of messing with a motor or anchor, or even getting wet.

Visit the Pop Board booth and select from a variety of models of both rigid and inflatable boards. Each board comes with a paddle, and inflatable boards include a manual pump and equipment bag.

The exhibitors listed here are only a small sample of the boat manufacturers and representatives you will meet at the Newport Beach International Boat Show. General admission to the boat show is $28 to $40, with VIP tickets available for $195. Children up to 2 years old enter for free. There are also discounts for military service members and first responders with valid IDs or credentials.

For parking, bear in mind this is a large event with limited space at the Lido Marina Village parking structure, so you can expect heavy local traffic and limited space. Parking validations cost $50 per day but do not include admission for the show, so if you are coming from Orange County or Los Angeles County, consider ride-share options to save time and money. You also will find free parking at Hoag Health Center, 538 Superior Ave., Newport Beach, with free shuttle service to and from Lido Marina Village.

inside Newport Harbor and at Corona del Mar State Beach just outside the harbor. You may take a free mooring for the day, but you must leave the mooring before sunset, said Joseph White of the Newport Harbor Department. When you enter the harbor, contact the department on VHF channel 19A or call by phone at (949) 270-8159. Also visit newportbeachca.gov for regulations regarding anchoring in these areas.

If you are looking for that special place where you can spend the day surfing, sightseeing and meeting up with friends and family for great food, you need look no farther than Newport Beach. Enjoy!

Changes in NOAA/NWS’s Coastal Waters Forecast to Enhance Wave Detail Reporting

In a bid to enhance maritime safety and provide more comprehensive information to coastal communities, National Oc eanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)’s National Weather Service ( NWS) has announced significant changes to its Coastal Waters Forecast (CWF). These changes are set to revolutionize wave forecasts, offering a more detailed and nuanced understanding of sea conditions.

Under the current format, wave activity is described in terms of Wind Waves and Swell, with limited information provided regarding height, d irection, and period. For example, a typical forecast might read “Wind waves around 2 feet or less. Swell west 2 feet at 12 seconds.” However, the new format will offer a more detailed breakdown, with specific emphasis on the height, direction, and period of all impactful wave systems for at least the first three days of the forecast.

Gone are the terms Wind Wave and Swell; instead, the new format will provide a clearer picture of sea conditions with information such as “Seas around 3 feet. Wave Detail: west 2 feet at 10 seconds and south 1 foot at 15 seconds.”

This shift towards a more detailed wave forecast is expected to bring several benefits. Firstly, it will provide mariners with additional information to better plan routes and operations at sea. By offering insights into both short and long period wave hazards, mariners will be better equipped to navigate more safely through varying sea conditions.

Furthermore, the standardization of the CWF across the National Weather Service will ensure consistency in reporting, simplifying interpretation for users and enhancing overall reliability.

NOAA/NWS has made these changes with the aim of improving safety and decision-making for all those who rely on a ccurate and timely weather information along the coastlines. The updated Coastal Waters Forecast can be accessed through various channels, including the NOAA/NWS website (weather.gov/sgx/ marine), the Watches, Warnings & Advisories (WWA) map on weather.gov/ sandiego, and most marine band radios utilizing WX Channels 1-7.

The CWF serves as a vital tool for

providing comprehensive information about m arine weather conditions along coastal areas. Its primary objective is to ensure maritime safety by furnishing accurate and timely forecasts, aiding mariners, including commercial vessels, recreational boaters, fishermen, a nd other stakeholders, in making informed decisions regarding navigation. The CWF facilitates effective planning a nd operations by forecasting parameters such a s wave heights, and wind speeds, enabling mariners to plan routes and activities while minimizing risks associated w ith adverse weather..

As NOAA/NWS continues to prioritize the safety and well-being of maritime communities, these changes mark a significant step towards providing the most comprehensive and reliable wave forecasts possible.

Navigating Stormy Seas: Tips for Boaters to Stay Safe During Bad Weather

As boating enthusiasts take to the water for a day of adventure, it’s crucial to be prepared for the unpredictable nature of the weather, especially during stormy seas. With lightning strikes, microbursts and sudden squalls posing significant risks, boaters must take proactive measures to ensure their safety and the safety of their passengers. Here are some essential tips to help boaters navigate through bad weather:

Lightning Preparedness:

When lightning strikes, it can be a serious threat to boaters, as water conducts electricity. To stay safe during a thunderstorm, it is recommended that:

1. Monitor weather forecasts before heading out and be aware of any thunderstorm warnings issued for the area.

2. If a thunderstorm approaches, seek shelter in a sturdy enclosed structure on land if possible. If caught on the water, head to shore as quickly and safely as possible.

3. If shelter is not available, avoid the tallest object on the water, i.e. a mast or fishing rods, and stay low in the boat’s cabin.

4. Disconnect all electrical appliances and avoid using electronic devices until the storm has passed.

Dealing with Bad Weather:

In the event of encountering bad weather while out on the water, boaters should:

1. S tay calm and assess the situation. Keep a lookout for dark clouds, sudden changes in wind speed or direction and other signs of approaching storms.

2 I f possible, navigate away from the storm by changing course and heading to the nearest safe harbor.

3. S ecure all loose items on deck to prevent them from becoming projectiles in strong winds.

4 E nsure that all passengers are wearing life jackets and are prepared for rough seas.

Understanding Microbursts:

Microbursts are sudden and powerful downdrafts of air that descend from thunderstorms and can cause extreme wind gusts near the surface. They are typically short-lived but can be extremely dangerous for boaters. Microbursts are created when a strong downdraft of cold air within a thunderstorm hits the ground and spreads out in all directions, creating a burst of wind that can reach speeds of over 100 miles per hour.

The dangers of microbursts for boaters include:

1. Sudden and unpredictable changes in wind direction and speed, making navigation difficult.

2. V iolent and turbulent seas, which can capsize or damage boats.

3. Falling debris and objects propelled by strong winds, posing a risk to both passengers and vessels.

In encountering a microburst while boating, it is crucial to:

1. S eek shelter in a protected area, such as a cove or inlet, if possible, to wait out the storm.

2. Secure all loose items on deck and ensure that all passengers are wearing life jackets.

3. Avoid trying to outrun or navigate through the microburst, as it can lead to even more dangerous situations.

By staying informed, prepared, and vigilant, boaters can minimize the risks associated with bad weather and enjoy safe and enjoyable experiences on the water. Remember, safety should always be the top priority when venturing out into the open sea.

Editor’s Note:

The safety tips provided in this article serve as valuable recommendations for boaters facing challenging weather conditions. However, it is essential to emphasize that boaters should always prioritize their safety by staying up-to-date

on boating safety laws and regulations, as well as completing relevant boating safety courses. Additionally, thorough preparedness before embarking on any voyage is crucial, including checking all necessary safety equipment, ensuring the vessel is in good working condition and familiarizing oneself with emergency procedures. Tracking weather forecasts and heeding any warnings or advisories issued by relevant authorities is also paramount. Ultimately, boaters must exercise caution, use good judgment and be prepared to navigate safely through any adverse weather conditions they may encounter on the water.

California’s Division of Boating and Waterways Allocates $4.25 Million for Public Safety and Waterway Preservation Grants

The Division of Boating and Waterways (DBW) within California State Parks is currently accepting grant proposals to enhance safety and preserve the integrity of California’s waterways, while also addressing issues related to abandoned and unwanted vessels. A total of $4.25 million in funding is available for two competitive grant programs: the Boating Safety and Enforcement Equipment (BSEE) program and the Surrendered and Abandoned Vessel Exchange (SAVE) program. Applications for these grants are open until April 30.

The BSEE program enhances waterway safety by granting funds for patrol boats, equipment and enforcement activities. It is funded by the U.S. Coast Guard’s Recreational Boating Safety Program.

T he SAVE program addresses abandoned vessels in California’s

waterways, providing grants for their removal by local agencies. Funded by the Abandoned Watercraft Abatement Fund, it protects the environment, enhances safety and supports waterway integrity.

Ramona Fernandez, deputy director of DBW, emphasized the importance of these grants in promoting safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences for both experienced and novice recreational boaters. She also expressed gratitude to the boating law enforcement community for their ongoing efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of California’s boating community.

Maintaining and preserving California’s waterways is important for numerous reasons. The water bodies serve as vital habitats for diverse aquatic species, crucial for biodiversity and ecological balance. Additionally, clean and preserved waterways contribute to the overall health of surrounding ecosystems, supporting recreational activities such as boating, fishing and swimming,

which are essential for both physical and mental well-being. Waterways play a significant role in providing drinking water, irrigation for agriculture and supporting local economies through tourism and commerce. By prioritizing the cleanliness and preservation of California’s w aterways, the state can safeguard the environment and its inhabitants and ensure sustainability and prosperity for present and future generations.

Last year, DBW awarded a total of $1.57 million in BSEE grants and $2.75 million in SAVE grants, supporting a range of initiatives. This year, DBW is stepping up its commitment, aiming to allocate up to $4.25 million to eligible applicants through these highly sought-after and competitive grant programs.


he BSEE grant program, with up to $1.5 million available in funding, is intended for local government agencies statewide. These agencies can use the grant funds to acquire patrol boats, re -

placement engines, personal watercraft, search-and-rescue equipment and other resources to bolster recreational boating safety and enforcement activities. These grants are meant to supplement existing local resources rather than fully fund boating safety and enforcement units.

Meanwhile, the SAVE grant program offers up to $2.75 million, also for local public agencies statewide. This funding is allocated for the removal and disposal of surrendered recreational vessels and derelict vessels from coastal and inland public waterways.

Applicants for both grant programs are required to submit their proposals through the Online Grant Application System (OLGA) by the April 30 deadline. To assist new applicants, DBW recommends viewing a 45-minute instructional v ideo on creating an OLGA account and navigating the application system.

Stocking Up for Safety: How to Prepare Your Boat with Adequate Provisions for Bad Weather

As boaters set sail for adventures on the open waters, one crucial aspect that should never be overlooked is ensuring that the vessel is adequately provisioned, especially in preparation for potential encounters with bad weather. Whether embarking on a day trip or an extended ocean voyage, having a well-stocked supply of provisions onboard can make all the difference in ensuring safety and comfort during challenging conditions. Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to prepare your boat with the necessary provisions to endure bad weather:

1. Water:

Water is perhaps the most critical provision to have onboard, as staying hydrated is essential for survival, especially during extended periods at sea. Plan to carry at least one gallon of water per person per day, accounting for both drinking and sanitation needs. Additionally, consider investing in a watermaker or desalination system for long-term voyages to replenish your freshwater supply from seawater.

2. Non-perishable food:

Stock your boat with a variety of non-perishable food items that are easy to store and p repare. Canned goods, dry pasta, rice, beans, nuts, granola bars and dehydrated meals are excellent options that provide essential nutrients and energy. Don’t forget to include a manual can opener and any necessary cooking equipment, such as a portable stove or grill.

3. Emergency rations:

In addition to regular provisions, it’s essential to have emergency rations onboard in case of unforeseen circumstances or

extended periods of bad weather. Coast Guard-approved emergency food rations, such as energy bars or freeze-dried meals, are specially designed to provide essential nutrients and calories in compact, long-lasting packages.

4. First aid kit:

A well-stocked first aid kit is a must-have onboard any boat, containing essential medical supplies to treat injuries or illnesses that may occur while at sea. Include items such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, pain relievers, seasickness medication, sunscreen and any prescription medications needed by passengers.

5. Safety equipment:

In addition to provisions, ensure that your boat is equipped with essential safety gear to handle emergencies and adverse weather conditions. This includes life jackets for all passengers, a marine radio for communication, signaling devices such as flares or a signaling mirror, a waterproof flashlight and a well-stocked ditch bag containing essential survival items.

6. Fuel and spare parts:

Keep your boat’s fuel tanks topped up and ensure you have an adequate supply of fuel for the duration of your voyage, including extra reserves in case of unexpected delays or diversions. Additionally, carry spare parts and tools for basic repairs and maintenance to address any mechanical issues that may arise while underway.

7. Weather forecasting tools:

Stay informed about weather conditions along your planned route by carrying reliable weather forecasting tools onboard, such as a marine weather radio, satellite weather receiver or smartphone app with real-time weather updates. Monitor weather forecasts

regularly and be prepared to alter your course or seek shelter if adverse conditions are predicted.

8. Communication and navigation:

Maintain communication with shorebased contacts or fellow boaters using a marine VHF radio or satellite phone. Ensure your boat is equipped with reliable navigation equipment, including GPS, charts, compass and backup navigation tools in case of equipment failure or loss of GPS signal.

9. Crew training and emergency drills:

Lastly, ensure that all crew members are familiar with emergency procedures and know how to operate safety equipment onboard. Conduct regular safety drills to practice responses to various emergencies, including man overboard situations, fire, flooding and abandoning ship scenarios.

By following these guidelines and adequately provisioning your boat for bad weather, you can ensure that you and your

crew are prepared to handle whatever challenges may arise while at sea. Remember, preparation is key to staying safe and comfortable during ocean voyages, so take the time to plan and stock up before setting sail on your next adventure.

Editor’s Note:

The suggestions provided in this article are offered as recommendations by The Log and are intended to serve as a helpful guide for boaters in preparing their vessels for potential encounters with bad weather. It is important to note that while we strive to provide valuable information, The Log is not a professional safety course or authority on maritime safety. Boaters should exercise their own judgment and consult with certified safety experts or undergo official safety training courses for comprehensive guidance on boating safety practices. Ultimately, the responsibility for ensuring safety onboard rests with the boat owner and crew, and thorough preparation and adherence to established safety protocols are essential for a safe and enjoyable boating experience.

Boating Safely in High Traffic and Small Spaces

Navigating high-traffic harbor areas poses unique challenges for boaters, especially when it comes to avoiding collisions between boats, paddleboards, k ayaks and other vessels that roam the calmer waters.

Expert research outlined in the article “Visibility Factors in Small Boat Collisions,” by Robson Forensic, offers valuable insights on how boaters can enhance safety on the water and minimize the risk of accidents involving kayaks and small vessels. For the full article, please visit https:// www.robsonforensic.com/articles/ small-boat-visibility-factors-expert.

The research, based on on-the-water tests involving volunteers in kayaks and powerboats, underscores the importance of early detection. One key finding reveals

that kayaks may not be visible to powerboats until they are approximately a quarter of a mile away. The sooner a small vessel is spotted, the better the chances of avoiding a collision.

A significant observation from the study indicates that 75% of powerboat operators first noticed the “paddle flash” when encountering kayaks. Notably, a white or light-colored paddle blade significantly enhances visibility compared to a dark blade. To further enhance visibility, experts suggest adding paddle tip reflectors to kayak paddles.

For kayakers, implementing safety measures is paramount.

Recommendations include carrying an audible signaling device, wearing fluorescent life vests or shirts, opting for paddles with white or light-colored blades, avoiding kayaking in areas with high boat traffic whenever possible, and

utilizing flags that can be mounted on kayaks to increase visibility.

Owners of larger boats also play a crucial role in preventing collisions with kayaks a nd small vessels.

Key practices include wearing sunglasses to aid in spotting smaller craft, maintaining a proper lookout at all times and exercising heightened vigilance in areas where encounters with smaller boats are likely.

By incorporating these guidelines into your boating safety practices and

remaining vigilant while navigating high-traffic harbor areas, boaters can significantly reduce the risk of collisions and ensure a safer and more enjoyable experience for all waterway users.

California Implements Measures to Protect Whales: Changes to Dungeness Crab Fisheries

In a bid to safeguard migrating humpback whales from entanglement risks, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) Director, Charlton H. Bonham, has announced significant alterations to both commercial and recreational Dungeness crab fisheries. The decision comes after aerial and vessel surveys conducted in mid-March revealed an uptick in humpback whale numbers returning to forage off California’s coast.

Migrating whales can get caught in Dungeness crab traps due to their size and trap design. This happens when whales swim near traps, becoming tangled in the lines attached to buoys. Entanglement can lead to injury or death. Measures are needed to reduce entanglement risk and safeguard whales while maintaining the crab fishery’s sustainability.

The changes went into effect at 6 p.m. April 8, when the commercial Dungeness crab fishery in Fishing Zones 3, 4, 5 and 6 – spanning from the Sonoma/Mendocino county line to the U.S./Mexico border – closed.

T his entails a complete prohibition on the commercial take a nd possession of Dungeness crab from these waters. Additionally, a 30-fathom depth constraint will be enforced for the commercial Dungeness crab fishery in Fishing Zones 1 and 2, stretching from the Sonoma/Mendocino county line to the Oregon border. Traps used by the commercial fishery in these zones will be banned in waters seaward of the 30-fathom contour.

A recreational crab trap prohibition will be implemented i n Fishing Zones 3, 4 and 5 to mitigate entanglement risks further, extending from the Sonoma/Mendocino county line to Point Conception. However, recreational crabbers are reminded that t he take of Dungeness crab by alternative methods, such as hoop nets and crab snares, remains permissible until the end of the season.

California Fish and Game Commission Adopts

2024 Groundfish Regulations

The California Fish and Game Commission has unanimously approved adjustments to the 2024 groundfish season, a ffecting opening dates, fishing depths and bag limits. Following restrictions in 2023 due to exceeding federal catch limits on quillback rockfish, designated as an overfished species, the new changes offer additional fishing opportunities, but come with new requirements for anglers.

These regulations complement federal waters regulations, particularly to avoid quillback rockfish in their primary depth range of 20 to 50 fathoms off the northern and central California coastlines. Notably, new waypoints defining a 20-fathom boundary line will confine fishing activities shoreward of this line, facilitating an ‘Inshore Fishery’ within several groundfish management areas (GMAs) during t he 2024 season. Conversely, during “offshore only fishery” months, fishing for groundfish will be limited to seaward of the 50-fathom boundary line, with restrictions on certain species. Divers and shore-based anglers remain exempt from boat-based season restrictions, aligning with current regulations.

Additionally, the commission has mandated the carrying and immediate availability of descending devices on vessels fishing for federal groundfish

While all open Fishing Zones continue to be under a Fleet Advisory for both commercial and recreational Dungeness crab fisheries, CDFW emphasizes the importance of adhering to best practices outlined in the Best Practices Guide. Moreover, under emergency regulations authorized in early March, commercial Dungeness crab vessels are permitted to retrieve an unlimited number of lost, damaged, abandoned or derelict commercial Dungeness crab traps in Fishing Z ones 3 through 6 starting from 6 a.m. on April 15. Vessels operating under these regulations are urged to report any retrieved gear promptly to WhaleSafe -

to improve the survival rate of released fish suffering from barotrauma. Another significant change involves the division of the central GMA at 36º N. latitude, providing opportunities for anglers in areas south of this line with historically minimal catch of quillback rockfish. To safeguard vermilion rockfish, the sub-limit within the Rockfish, Cabezon and Greenling complex has been reduced in specific GMAs. Recreational GMAs in California are slated for six months of all-depth or inshore fishing opportunity in 2024, with season summaries outlined for each GMA approved by the commission.

The 2024 regulations are anticipated to be reviewed and approved by the O ffice of Administrative Law and come into effect in state waters in early April, with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife providing updates on its Summary of Recreational Groundfish Fishing Regulations web page. Anglers are advised to consult this resource for the latest season openings and regulatory information before heading out to fish.


W hile these measures may pose challenges for anglers, they are essential for the protection of migrating whales. CDFW anticipates conducting the next risk assessment in mid-April and encourages individuals to stay informed about updates related to the risk assessment process by visiting CDFW’s Whale Safe Fisheries page. For more information on the Dungeness crab fishery, anglers are advised to visit wildlife.ca.gov/crab.


Drop the Line for Rockfish!

The rockfish opener along the beach was a bit slow with funky water and fish that didn’t really want to bite. But the deep water on the 14 Mile bank kicked out some good ones later in the day. Back at it mañana. Are you coming?

san diego fish report


The early spring fishing season has brought bluefin tuna to offshore waters within 1.5 day range of Point Loma and has also provided good fishing for reds, rockfish, sand bass, calico bass, sculpin and whitefish at spots along the San Diego County coast and Los Coronado Islands. The fishing along the San Diego County coast has also had some large yellowtail biting at La Jolla and the San Diego County coastal fishing is also producing an improved halibut bite. Anglers are anticipating continued spring time improvement in the surface fishing offshore, at the islands and along the coast but a series of recent weather systems have brought high seas, strong winds and rain which seem to have temporarily stalled the development of the spring surface fishing. This should be only a temporary setback though and a prolonged stretch of nice weather should help a lot.

Bluefin tuna have been biting during the late winter and early spring season but the past few trips that I know of that were targeting bluefin struggled to locate biting bluefin. I think a large part of the recent decline in some of the bluefin catches can be blamed on the recent series of weather systems that have been moving through Southern California and Northern Baja.

Bluefin were biting much better before the recent series of storm when there were near limit to limit catches being made on fish that were mostly in the 50 to 180 pound range. These fish were biting in the 1000 fathom basin below the 1010 Trench in the region of the Catcher’s Mitt between 90 and 105 miles 180 to 190 degrees from Point Loma.

Bluefin have been caught during the night and during the day with the night time fishing usually being the best. Knife jigs fished during the dark around sonar marks and meter marks have been working best. Also try sinker rigged sardines during the night and the day as well as flylined sardines during the day.

The fishing around Los Coronado

Islands has not seen much in the way of recent yellowtail or other surface fishing activity but the fishing has been very good for a mixture of reds, rockfish, whitefish and an occasional lingcod. The best areas for the mixed bag bottom fishing have been to the northwest, north and northeast of North Island in 25 to 60 fathoms. Not far away, also try fishing for rockfish on the Mexico side of the border at the lower end of the 9 Mile Bank. Another productive rockfish zone has been at the South Kelp Ridge below South Island in the 25 to 45 fathom depths.

Anglers were happy to see the seasonal rockfish closure on the US side of the Mexico border come to an end on April 1. There were a lot of anglers out fishing on opening day and there were some areas that produced well and other areas where the reports were of slack current and slack drift conditions where the fishing was just fair. On opening day, reports of the good rockfish fishing were from boats fishing off Del Mar and Box Canyon. Good news is that in subsequent days the current and drift conditions improved in other areas and the fishing also turned good at spots such as the 9 Mile Bank, The 270, Carlsbad and Leucadia. Another area off the Orange County coast that has provided good rockfish fishing since the opener is the 14 Mile Bank. Please refer to the Department of Fish and Wildlife website at www.wildlife.ca.gov. to keep up with the ever changing rockfish regulations.

The fishing along the San Diego County coast continues to provide a chance at catching a large yellowtail at La Jolla. There are yellowtail seen off La Jolla most every day. Some days see good sized schools of yellowtail being metered and seen and other days just a few small spots of yellowtail are located. It continues to be difficult to get the yellowtail to bite but the effort can sometimes result in catching a nice sized yellowtail in the 18 to 40 pound range.

The majority of yellowtail hookups have been on yo-yo iron or surface iron that are fished around spots of bait, meter marks, sonar marks or spots of breaking

fish. The yellowtail activity is usually found in 8 to 30 fathoms with the 14 to 20 fathom depths often being the best.

The key to finding yellowtail has been locating schools of bait. The best zones to try to locate yellowtail have been along the outskirts of the MLPA closure zone at the lower end of La Jolla as well as outside of the upper end of La Jolla while fishing to the west of “The Hotel.”

Yo-yo iron that is fished around deep meter marks found around deep bait balls continues to account for most of the yellowtail hookups and good choices for yo-yo iron include Salas 6X and 6X Jr. jigs in blue and white and scrambled egg colors. Colt Sniper style yo-yo jigs have also been effective at times.

Surface iron has also been working for yellowtail at times when you can cast the jig to breaking fish before they sound. Good choices for surface iron include Tady 45 and Salas 7X light jigs in blue and white, mint and sardine colors.

As the spring season progresses there have been more yellowtail hooked using things other than iron and trolled Rapalas have been one of the things that has producing an occasional yellowtail. Also effective have been mackerel and sardines when fished on a dropper loop rig or when slow trolled.

In addition to a chance at a yellowtail at La Jolla, hard bottom and structure areas up and down the San Diego County coast have been producing a good mix of calico bass, sand bass, sculpin, sheephead, whitefish and halibut.

Productive areas for the sand bass, calico bass, sculpin, sheephead and whitefish include the Imperial Beach Pipeline, the hard bottom to the northwest of Buoy #3 at Point Loma, the Green Tank, the Jetty Kelp outside of Mission Bay, the Variety Kelp at the lower end of La Jolla, the upper end of La Jolla, Solana Beach, Leucadia, South Carlsbad, the Barn and San Onofre.

There have been improving numbers

of halibut biting along the San Diego County coast and areas that have been producing halibut activity include the sandy bottom adjacent to the Imperial Beach Pipeline and the sandy bottom adjacent to hard bottom outside of the Imperial Beach Pier.

San Diego Bay has also been producing halibut when drifting outside of the sunken jetty located on the Coronado side of the entrance to San Diego Bay. Inside of San Diego Bay, a productive area has been from Harbor Island on down to the Coronado Bridge while drifting on the Coronado side of the channel. Another productive area inside of San Diego Bay has been drifting off National City and Chula Vista on the National City and Chula Vista side of the channel.

Going further north, other areas producing an occasional halibut have been the sandy bottom next to the structure of the sunken NEL Tower and the structure of the Yukon Shipwreck off Mission Beach, the sandy bottom off South Ponto Beach, the sandy bottom next to the structure of the artificial reefs outside of Oceanside and the sandy bottom next to structure outside of San Onofre.
