E15 gas pump labels might be beefed up

By Parimal M. Rohit

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Two representatives from the Southeastern U.S. introduced a consumer protection bill on Capitol Hill as part of an effort to prevent boaters from misfueling at the pump. Reps. Austin Scott (R-Georgia) and Lois Frankel (D-Florida) introduced House Resolution 5855 (H.R. 5855) on May 16 and proposed to require gas pumps with 15 percent ethanol fuel, or E15, blends to feature new labeling. The labels would clearly inform boaters and consumers they are filling up with E15, which has regularly been identified by boating advocates as corrosive and harmful to recreational vessels. Scott and Frankel, by requiring gas station owners to provide clearly written notifications about E15, hope boaters would be on notice of a gas pump containing potential corrosive or harmful fuel. H.R. 5855 – also known as the Consumer Protection and Fuel Transparency Act of 2018 – specifically calls for gas pumps dispensing E15 fuels to be equipped with more

“By making fuel pump labels easier to decipher and coordinating public education programs, this legislation can save consumers time and energy at the pumps and avoid headaches and costs down the road,” Scott continued. Gasoline blends with 15 percent ethanol are prohibited from being used in boats, chainsaws, lawnmowers, motorcycles and snowmobiles. However E15 fuels still manage to get into those engines due to misfueling, according to various advocacy groups and media stories. Misfueling occurs whenever a gas pump does not H.R. 5855, if passed and signed into law, would require new – and more conspicuous – labeling of fuel pumps with E15 properly inform users (gasoline fuel blends with 15 percent ethanol).

those produced before 2001.” Scott and Frankel are both members of the Congressional Boating Caucus. The representatives discussed the bill at a press briefing hosted by National Marine Manufactures Association (NMMA), the boating organization that has regularly opposed E15 fuel uses in marine engines. NMMA and other recreational boating-themed organizations have advocated for the use of biobutanol fuel in marine engines. “NMMA will also continue to work to promote a safe E15 alternative, biobutanol, as well as continue to fight back against efforts to expand the sale of E15. However, as long as E15 is on the market, more consumer safeguards are needed and the Scott-Frankel legislation helps tremendously in this regard,” a NMMA blog post about H.R. 5855 stated. Thom Dammerich, NMMA’s president, urged passage of H.R. 5855 as a means to protect the nation’s 142 million boaters from misfueling. “Currently 63 percent of consumers assume all products sold at these stations are safe for their engines despite the fact that high ethanol fuel blends are prohibited in boat engines [and] 95 percent of boat owners fuel their boat at a local gas station,” Dammerich stated in an NMMA statement. “Consumer awareness at the pump is so critical.”

Ocean Beach residents catch rare glimpse of a mermaid over holiday weekend

Trump spoke June 1 while presiding over a Coast Guard

In 2006, town residents of Beaufort, BW South Carolina decided to decorate and place 31 statues in likeness to the mythical sea sirens for an art project. And, of course, Copenhagen, Denmark is home to the famed “Little Mermaid” statue that pays homage to the popular fairytale-turned-Disney-movie originally penned by Hans Christian Andersen.

Karl Schultz, who became the nation’s 26th commandant. “On behalf of the American people, I thank you for a lifetime of noble service. Congratulations on everything you have achieved,” Trump told Zukunft. Trump said that during his 45 years of service Zukunft “has led every kind of mission, and he has never backed down ever, ever, ever.” During his tenure as commandant for the past four years, Zukunft “has lead with extraordinary skill, and devotion, and

Trump said no brand has gained more than the Coast Guard and the public has

SAN DIEGO — Locals were mystified when a mermaid – or rather an art installation of sorts replicating one – appeared on Sunset Cliff’s Ross Rock over Memorial Day Weekend. Onlookers have dubbed her “Aquatica,” “Ariel” and “Princess of the Sea.” The rock the mermaid sits on is also known as “Bird S***Rock” by locals and is in proximity to Ocean Beach. Some have reported two men were seen atop the rock posing the mermaid, which is seemingly mannequin-like. Though photos were snapped of the two men, locals are not


pleased by her sudden presence. According to reports by CBS8, Sunset Cliff Advisory Council referred to her as graffiti. On the opposite end, a San Diego City spokesperson stated she does not pose a threat to anyone. An overwhelming number of comments on Twitter seemed to enjoy the mermaid and encouraged city officials to allow her to stay. Katie Thompson wrote, “I say keep the mermaid! She’s beautiful and just might bring more business to Ocean Beach by her being there.” Another commenter on Twitter wrote, “Keep the mermaid. Ditch the haters.” Many other locations around the world have adopted

This mermaid, known to locals as “Aquatica,” “Ariel” and “Princess of the Sea,” is currently sitting atop Ross Rock at Sunset Cliff.

RV maker Winnebago gets into boating with purchase of ChrisCraft DES MOINES, Iowa (LOG NEWS SERVICE) — Recreational vehicle manufacturer Winnebago Industries announced June 4 that it had acquired boat maker Chris-Craft to expand beyond motor homes and travel trailers and create a diversified outdoor lifestyle products company. Winnebago, based in Forest City, Iowa, hasn’t disclosed details of the transaction but said it would finance the deal with cash and debt. Chris-Craft has a recreational boating brand history dating back to 1874 when 13-year-old Christopher Columbus Smith built his first wooden boats referred to as “punts” or “skiffs.” Known worldwide for their luxurious mahogany-hulled open cockpit powerboats of the 1920s through 1950s, ChrisCraft built their last mahogany boat – a 57-foot Constellation – in 1971. In the early 1950s, Chris-Craft expanded its lineup to include 139 powerboat models and by 1955 they had manufactured their first fiberglass boat. Currently Chris-Craft has a broad portfolio of stern drive and outboard boats ranging in size from 21 to 38 feet, which the firm says, have been sold in more than 50 different countries since 2010. London-based investment firm Stellican Ltd. has owned Chris-Craft since 2001. Michael Happe, Winnebago’s president and CEO, said he sees a significant intersection between the RV and marine lifestyles and views the boat business as a natural addition to its existing outdoor recreation portfolio, with similar customer demographics and ownership crossover. An article in the June 4 edition of the Des Moines, Iowa Star Register reported Ashis Bhattacharya, Winnebago’s vice president for strategic planning said that about a third of the company’s customers are boat owners in addition to having recreational vehicles and that the opportunity for Winnebago to have an added presence in the general outdoor lifestyle market has been a priority. Stephen Heese will stay on as ChrisCraft president and Winnebago expects to maintain the boat manufacturer’s Sarasota, Florida headquarters.

House of Representatives committee approves E15 education amendment WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. House of Representatives’ Appropriations Committee approved an amendment to the Fiscal Year 2019 Interior, Environment and Related Agencies spending bill, June 6, calling for a public education and outreach campaign of E15 (gasoline with 15 percent ethanol). The amendment, introduced by Rep. Andy Harris, R-Maryland, and supported by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), would encourage the Environmental Protection Agency to pursue campaign educating the public on the effects of E15 on marine engines. The bill, as a whole, would provide $35.25 billion in funding for a variety of

STATE Training Resources Ltd. announces merger with Maritime Institute, Inc., of San Diego SAN DIEGO — Training Resources Ltd., Inc., announced the operations of Maritime Institute, Inc., of San Diego, would be merged into Training Resources’ San Diego facilities. Training Resources CEO Dave Abrams, who recently acquired 50 percent of the company, will be the chief executive of the combined operation. “Combining Maritime Institute’s great team with TRL’s world class facilities will allow us to serve the certified US Coast Guard training needs for all professional mariners. Maritime Institute has a stellar reputation for taking care of their students and because of that they were a great fit for our culture, and their courses fill a void in our offerings for lower tonnage ratings,” Abrams said. Training Resources provides training experiences for professional mariners and has more than 50 approved Coast Guard courses to provide certifications in deck, engineering and safety requirements. Maritime Institute, meanwhile, was founded in 1976 and was most recently owned by H.G.“Rags” and Kathy Laragione. The company also provided training to professional and recreational mariners.

Port of Los Angeles completes Harbor Boulevard roadway improvement SAN PEDRO — The Port of Los Angeles and City Council member Joe Buscaino officially celebrated the completion of Harbor Boulevard’s $15.6 million roadway improvements in San Pedro. The newly configured road, according to city and port officials, improves traffic flow and provides more streamlined access to the planned San Pedro Public Market space on the L.A. Waterfront. Los Angeles Harbor Commission President Jaime Lee added the port district’s next project would bring a new town square on the San Pedro waterfront online. The planned town square would be built where a marina and restaurants once existed. “The town square and promenade is expected to begin in spring of 2019,” Port of L.A. staff stated in a release.“The new public promenade will run parallel to the Los Angeles Main Channel for more than a half mile, meeting the new town square at 6th Street, just east of Harbor Boulevard. The promenade and town square will include such amenities as public seating, landscaping, hardscaping, architectural finishes, handrails and lighting.” San Pedro Public Market is expected to occupy 40 acres and cost about $152 million to build. Port district staff plans to open the new waterfront destination in 2021. Harbor Boulevard’s improvement took about 18 months to complete. More than half of the project’s funding – $8.6 million – came in the form of a L.A. County Metropolitan Transportation Authority grant. -Parimal M. Rohit

Re: Redondo Beach’s controversial “Waterfront” redevelopment remains in limbo (June 1-14 issue)

Harbor uses should remain the priority Emdee and Bruning accusing residents of playing the race card is purely revisionist fiction. Early in the process, Bruning was quoted in a local paper saying the area needed revitalization because there are “scary people down there.” The most avid supporters of CenterCal posted about people with “ghetto blasters” at Seaside Lagoon; Mexicans camping on the pier, and people “not reflective of Redondo demographics.” Bruning took what a few people said about a theater at the waterfront and ignored the overwhelming majority who spoke in opposition. The fact of the matter is Bruning was the first to talk about a theater as part of the development. And Emdee is copping out. The people want broad harbor revital-

BW ization. But they want one that is not so impactful on long standing recreational uses of the harbor as an actual harbor. We have many, many alternatives to shop, dine and see movies, but in the 25 miles of coastline between MDR and the Port of Los Angeles there is only one harbor. Harbor uses should remain the priority of the harbor. And we can revitalize without supersizing. Jim Light

The unwanted “Mall by the Sea” Did you ever read the pro-CenterCal Facebook page moderated by Tony Trutanich, Jr. and Chris Voisey? It is full of race-baiting and fear of “the other” with many, many instances of derogatory rhetoric directed at non-Redondo residents. This article makes no mention of that, and instead swallows the CenterCal-approved B.S. claiming the racism is actually coming from…we, the residents???

Port of San Diego hopes to get a grip on illegal charters Community input meeting is met with standing-room-only crowd, but solutions remain unclear. By Parimal M. Rohit SAN DIEGO — Frustration? Meet Bureaucracy. Bureaucracy? Meet Frustration. Tempers aren’t yet flaring but local anglers, boaters and other maritime professionals are engaged in a tense dance with Port of San Diego officials, with both sides trying to figure out how to address the topic of illegal charter operations. Also in the mix is the U.S. Coast Guard and San Diego city officials, meaning there are several thumbs in the pie. Whether there are too many cooks in the kitchen remains to be seen, but there were certainly an overflow of attendees at a recent public workshop on illegal charter operations. Port district staff hosted the workshop in hopes of gathering as much input as possible within a one-hour span. It could be a while before the provided input – and there was certainly plenty of input to go around – translates into tangible policy. Even more time would pass before whatever the Port of San Diego decides to enact trickles up north and (potentially) influences policymaking at other harbors and marinas. The issue, of course, is the pursuit of operating

a boating-themed business while circumventing already established regulations. There appears to be no shortage of people out there who offer fishing trips, harbor tours or whale-watching excursions without meeting Coast Guard or Port of San Diego requirements. These under-the-radar operations, in turn, avoid sharing a slice of their respective revenues with the port district, while also undercutting the regulation-complying competition. Those illegal charter operators, coincidentally and obviously, were probably the only ones not attending the Port of San Diego public workshop (which was held at the port’s headquarters on June 4). The regulation-complying operators – and those attempting to comply – took turns sharing their perspectives on how to minimize illegal charter operations, which happens to be a prevailing issue at several harbors. (The Log has already covered this topic in Dana Point and Marina del Rey, for example.) Some believed stricter or more proactive enforcement of the rules and regulations already on the books would go a long way in reducing illegal charter operations in San Diego Bay. Others worried the advent of illegal charter operations was the direct result of bureaucracy and frustration with the system.

FAST FACTS: San Miguel Island’s “Lost Liberator” By Parimal M. Rohit

CHANNEL ISLANDS — One of the Channel Islands – San Miguel Island – was the site of a plane crash. The plane: a bomber belonging to the U.S. Army Air Forces. The B-24 Liberator was lost on July 5, 1943. She was dispatched out of Salinas Army Air Base that day to search for another B-24 – Eddie Rickenbacker – which went missing during a training mission off the Santa Barbara coast the previous evening. Foggy conditions apparently caused Liberator to crash into San Miguel Island’s Green Mountain. The mountain’s peak is 817 feet and Liberator was believed to be flying at a 500-foot altitude. Officials reportedly required eight months to

recover wreckage of the plane – and the bodies of the 12 men aboard. Those 12 men will be honored on July 5 of this year – exactly 75 years after they crashed into Santa Miguel Island. Eddie Rickenbacker’s wreckage was eventually found on the mainland, 10 miles north of Santa Barbara. Fuel shortage reportedly caused the bomber’s crash. Her crew, according to a report, parachuted from the plane prior to the crash. Eight of the bomber’s airmen reportedly survived. Santa Barbara Maritime Museum will host an event commemorating the lost flight of Liberator. The “Salute to San Miguel Island’s Lost Liberator” event will be held July 5, 4-6 p.m., at the museum. Santa Cruz Island Foundation, Pierre Claeyssens Veterans Foundation and the museum sponsor the event.

stated he has been making every effort to start his own compliant charter operation but has been unable to do so because the port district makes it too difficult to succeed. Yet another complaint: Marinas, which are given deference to provide charter operations with dock space, aren’t cooperating. Several charter operators who attended the June 4 workshop complained marinas don’t accept such vessels at their docks. The advent of illegal charter operations translates into the industry as a whole becomes less and less lucrative for those who do follow the rules, according to one operator. Illegal charter operators charge lower rates, which means those who operate legally have to maintain low prices themselves just to compete. Yet how can regulation-following charters function financially whey they can’t make enough money to cover compliance issues or what they owe to the port? Also complicating the issue is the multijurisdictional element of enforcing regulations. Agencies on the federal, state and local level are all involved. San Diego’s Harbor Police, meanwhile, hopes to address the issue through increased education. “I don’t want to criminalize everything. I don’t want to make this a law enforcement … issue,” Chief Mark

Re: Sneakaboards: Too Much Government Regulation? (May 18-31 issue)

Are liveaboards effecting the environment? The big complaint I remember hearing

Stainbrook told the standing-room audience at the June 4 workshop. Stainbrook added it was his aim to share with as many people as possible the rules and regulations for them to follow. Yet some stated education is not enough, adding fines and enforcement of regulations already on the book must

be part of the port district’s approach in addressing illegal charter operations. Establishing dedicated public dock space for all charter operations or maintaining a sanctioned marina/ landing was also suggested at the public workshop. The port district also has to factor

Mission Bay into the equation; the area north of the port district is within the city of San Diego’s jurisdiction. Any approved policy, ideally, would be a coordinated effort between the port district and San Diego City Hall, as to prevent illegal charter operations leaving the harbor and invading Mission Bay.

TAKE ACTION Port district staff must still develop an initial ordinance and flesh it out before the Board of Port Commissioners takes up a vote on the issue. Accordingly there is still plenty of time for interested parties to chime in and make suggestions of what the port district should do.

about too many live aboard was the effect on the environment. While this may have been true when people were dumping their sewage overboard that is not the case now. I do not think the people that live on their boats want to see our harbors decline anymore than anyone else. If anything they would be even more concerned about the ocean environment. The exception may be those that live on moorings away from a dock. It’s harder for them to avail themselves to dockside facilities such as restrooms, trash receptacles or showers. Mark Kamerer

Liveaboards infringing on homeowners Consideration to where some ‘liveaboards’ try to live on their own boats is necessary in this discussion. Some mooring spots are right in front of homeowners’ homes. A

homeowner does not want to be seeing the ‘liveaboards’ on their boats right out in front living and caring on their life. Often … not always some of these people pee in the bay, throw trash in the bay, and lead a noisy life style with little regard to the home owners whose front yards they are living in. This is one other aspect of LIVE ABOARDS that happen around So. Calif. Mary Longpre

No fairness in sneaking aboard The term “sneakaboard” is a totally valid term to indicate individuals that live on a vessel outside the compliance of the marina’s rules and policies. I’ve been on waiting lists for the privilege of living on my boat, and paid liveaboard fees once permission was granted. Where is the fairness to individuals like myself when others break the rules and “sneak” aboard. Marinas should

do a better job of policing the situation or just abolish the limitations and let everyone live on their boats if they want. Rules and policies are a waste if they are not enforced. Bob Eberwire

No smoking policy on the docks? I totally agree with Parimal Rohit. I have had boats in several local marinas and have always appreciated having some liveaboards in close proximity to help with security. As long as they don’t annoy others or start hanging out laundry or leave extraneous items on the dock, they are more than welcome in my book. One thing I would request though: A no-smoking policy on the docks and in their boats. This is a serious problem for the other tenants which can be easily overcome by a simple rule, easily enforced.

Blips on the Radar Latest News Updates Updates are in the works for Oceanside Harbor’s operational manual and rules What Happened: Sources in Oceanside have confirmed revisions to the rules and operations of the municipally owned harbor are currently being made. An email from Vickie Prosser, Aide to City Councilmember Jack Feller, to The Log stated that Feller was aware these changes to Oceanside Harbor’s “Blue Book” are in the process of being made, but could not elaborate on the exact changes and “has not received anything definitive at this point.” Prosser continued on behalf of Feller, saying the changes will be addressed in the near future.

What’s On Tap: Some of the changes expected to be under consideration concern longstanding problems due to regulations – or lack thereof – with a focus on improving the management. The Log has confirmed changes to Oceanside Harbor’s rules are in the works but information of when such alterations – and how sweeping they might be – have not yet been shared. - Devon Warren

Work on the new Holiday Inn Express and Suites at Ventura Harbor is underway.

Construction starts on hotel expansion at Ventura Harbor What Happened: Construction on the Holiday Inn Express and Suites at Ventura Harbor is officially underway, according to a report. The hotel is located at the Ventura Port District, alongside a stretch of the harbor’s marinas. What’s On Tap: The hotel expansion will add 40 new guest rooms within a 10-minute walk of the harbor. Construction should be completed in spring 2019, according to a Ventura Port District statement. Port district staff added Holiday Inn’s room count would jump to 109 once work is completed; the hotel will also have an expanded lobby and views of boats in the marina whenever guests check-in. There will also be a new exterior entryway.

Ted Gaines, R-El Dorado Hills, in February, was listed as “held in committee” after a May 25 hearing, meaning SB 1247 won’t move forward this legislative session. SB 1247 initially passed out of the State Senate’s Committee on Public Safety in April, but was placed on the suspense file when it arrived at the Appropriations Committee in early May. Gaines’ proposal did not progress from there.

L.A. County reaches agreement with Long Beach on marine debris agreement What Happened: Los Angeles County will reimburse the city of Long Beach up to $500,000 to cover the costs of removing

marine debris generated from upstream lands deposited at the city’s beaches and marinas via the Los Angeles River. Both agencies have entered into this arrangement annually since 1989. The county’s Board of Supervisors approved the reimbursement agreement June 6. “This agreement will provide the city [of Long Beach] with the funding assistance necessary to remove debris from the beaches and marinas generated by upstream land uses and conveyed by storm flows in the Los Angeles River,” county staff said in a report to supervisors. What’s On Tap: The $500,000-per-fiscal-year reimbursement would cover debris removal activities between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2019. - Parimal M. Rohit

Redondo Beach holds community outreach meeting on the rebuilding of Sportfishing Pier The general public is encouraged to give feedback on $693,000 design plans to update crumbling pier.

Sportfishing Pier Features/Amenities • Sportfishing (as of 6/8 the top ranked by voters) • Commercial operations (water taxis, Catalina Express, charters) • Floating dock (dock-and-dine, Kayak/SUP launch) • Special events space • Outdoor aspects (benches, fire pits, interactive art, etc.) • Pier building (restaurants, other operations)

REDONDO BEACH — Though it may be up in the air what will happen with Redondo Beach’s controversial harbor revitalization plan – referred to as “The Waterfront Project” – momentum has picked up during the community planning session to update the city’s tired Sportfishing Pier. The Redondo Beach City Council, in January, approved a contract with Moffatt & Nichol, the marine engineering firm that designed a $693,000 plan to update the structure of the decaying wooden pier. The pier has also been closed since the beginning of the year. All vendors operating there – including a local favorite Polly’s on the Pier, which had been open for more than 30 years – have moved to other locations. The fate of the Waterfront project won’t factor into the city’s plans for the Sportfishing Pier. At the first meeting, it was revealed there had been severe damage to the pier, including timber piles with complete breakage and large holes in the structure. Redondo Beach’s City Council decided to completely rebuild the pier instead of making repairs. Rebuilding

Will legislation help state officials identify the why California’s fishing license sales have been declining? By Parimal M. Rohit

SACRAMENTO — An effort to determine why fishing license sales in California have steadily declined year over year appears to have gained some momentum, as Assembly member James Gallagher’s proposal to create an advisory group study California’s angling industry made it out of the state’s lower house, May 29. The Assembly unanimously approved Assembly Bill 2465 (AB 2465) shortly after the Memorial Day Weekend, setting the stage for Gallagher’s proposal to be deliberated in the State Senate. AB 2465 specifically proposes the creation of a “sport fishing industry group” to work with the Department of Fish and Wildlife (DFW) in identifying barriers to sportfishing participation. The group – known as R3 Group – would also be tasked with developing and approving recommendations to remove the barriers it believes contribute to the steady decline in sportfishing license sales. R3 stands for “Recruitment, Retention, and Reactivation.” The R3 Group would be activated by Feb. 1, 2019, should AB 2465 become law. “Fishing license sales in California peaked in the early 1980s with approximately 2.5 million licenses being issued in a single year. In 2017, there were approximately 1.8 million licenses issued. However, in that time, annual (year-long) licenses fell from nearly 2.3 million to approximately 1 million,” a legislative analysis of AB 2465 stated. DFW’s revenues from sportfishing activity, when adjusted for inflation, have remained steady at $60-65 million annually since the 1980s, according to a legislative analysis of AB 2465. The annual revenue supports the department’s Fish and Game Preservation Fund, or FGPF, but the discretionary account’s status is dire, according to the Assembly’s May 26 legislative analysis. “The FGPF has a structural deficit of approximately $20 million annually,” the legislative analysis stated. Gov. Jerry Brown, interestingly enough, proposed to address the budget deficit with his 2018-19 budget, which will be up for a vote shortly. Brown specifically proposed to direct $51 million in new funding toward DFW, with $20 million allocated to cover the FGPF deficit and $31 million “to expand DFW activities.” The $51 million would be funded by tire recycling fees, vehicle registration and driver’s license fees (Motor Vehicle Account) and the General Fund. Operating the R3 Group would also come costs, though a specific budget has not yet been determined.

The Assembly’s Appropriations Committee stated associated costs for the group could include fulfilling public meeting law requirements and hiring an R3 Group coordinator. Gallagher’s bill might give legislators and policymakers some insight on why California’s sportfishing interests have been diminishing. To date there has been no clear consensus of what path state officials, industry leaders and everyday anglers should take in addressing the states sportfishing participation woes.

Assembly approves proposal to address barriers to sportfishing

Assembly member James Gallagher’s proposal to create a group to study the sportfishing industry and make suggestions to reverse declining participation rates was approved by California’s lower legislative house.

DFW already offers free fishing days, Fishing in the City, Fishing

Passport Program, Heritage Trout Challenge, Trout Fest events, Vamos A Pescar Grant Program and direct email marketing. “The extent to which these programs are coordinated or address common failures of R3 efforts is not clear,” the Assembly legislative analysis stated. Anglers and recreational fishing advocacy groups, meanwhile, have argued inflexible license fee schemes, the creation/expansion of Marine Protected Areas and attempts to ban lead fishing weights are the leading disincentives to fishing in California.

Assembly approves bill to create Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation Proposal aims to promote job growth and recreational activities such as fishing and kayaking.

SACRAMENTO — Prospects of what some might consider an added layer of bureaucracy took one step forward on May 30, as California’s Assembly members unanimously approved Assembly Bill 1918 (AB 1918). The bill proposes to establish an Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation. AB 1918, which was proposed by Assembly member Eduardo Garcia, D-El Centro, is now being considered in the State Senate; the bill’s first stop is the upper house’s Committee on Rules. A recently published legislative analysis of AB 1918 stated the office, if ultimately created, would achieve four goals: • Promote economic development and job growth in California’s outdoor recreation economy • Develop data on the effects of outdoor recreation in California • Recommend and coordinate policies to increase and enhance recreational activities, and

Plans to establish an Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation is moving through the state legislature. Assembly members approved AB 1918 on May 30. Will the proposal gain traction in the State Senate?

• Operate as the “central point of contact for the outdoor recreation industry in California.” The office would also have an advisory board “to provide advice, expertise, support and service,” according to the Assembly’s most recent legislative analysis. Members of the advisory board would hail from nonprofit organizations, tourism boards, businesses offering outdoor recreational goods or services, government agencies engaged in land management and state

agencies. Other states have similar offices or agencies already in place, according to a statement issued by Garcia’s office in April. “Despite the fact California by far holds the largest outdoor recreation economy in the nation, eight other states have already established similar offices of outdoor recreation or statelevel positions dedicated to this same purpose,” the statement issued by Garcia’s office stated. “The office [proposed in AB 1918] envisioned by this measure will work in conjunction with the diverse public, private, and nonprofit partners to help make our state’s programs and policies more relevant to the experiences that people are having and want to have in the outdoors.” California’s outdoor recreation industry and participation, according to AB 1918, contributes about $92 billion to the state’s economy while also supporting 691,000 jobs. “California’s outdoor recreation economy is the largest in the nation,” language of AB 1918 stated. “Encouraging sustainable recreation practices will help grow the economic development potential of the outdoor recreation economy and enable wise public lands management decisions.”

Statistics cited in the Assembly’s most recent legislative analysis were slightly different. “According to the proponents, California’s outdoor recreation economy is the largest in the United States. It generates [more than] $85 billion in annual consumer spending and creates more than 730,000 direct jobs,” the Assembly legislative analysis, which was published on May 26, stated. “Sales of consumer goods, travel and tourism expenses, and the cost of participating in outdoor recreational activities all generate this spending that likewise contributes significantly to federal, state and local tax revenues.” The legislative analysis went on to explain why the Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation is needed. “Despite the size and impact of the outdoor recreation economy in California, there is no single state-level office or governmental body that has the visibility and authority necessary to promote and advance the sector and harness its impact to improve outdoor recreation opportunities in the state,” the May 26 legislative analysis stated. “Additionally, as California’s population continues to grow and diversify, there is an opportunity to actively engage the outdoor recreation industry to continue and grow its leadership on issues related to stewardship of natural resources and connecting Californians, especially those from diverse communities, to the outdoors.” Garcia’s proposal was approved by a 75-0 vote (with three votes not recorded). Both houses of the legislature must support the bill before moving forward to the governor’s desk for approval or veto. Proposition 68, a ballot initiative on the June 5 ballot, could provide support to the Office of Sustainable Outdoor Recreation, if created. The proposition, which was approved by voters, will authorize $4.1 billion in general obligation bonds climate adaptation, flood protection, natural resources protection, parks and water quality.

Voters approve $4.1 billion debt plan for outdoor recreation investment Proposition 68 would allocate funding for water projects and coastal protection. By Parimal M. Rohit STATEWIDE — California will assume $4.1 billion in general obligation bonds to fund projects on coastal and environmental protection, restoration and water infrastructure, thanks to voters approving Proposition 68 on June 5. The initiative – known as the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Act of 2018 – was placed on the primary election ballot after being approved by legislators last year. Proposition 68 was approved by 56 percent of the electorate (2,158,311), according to California’s Secretary of State office. Kevin DeLeon, the state senator who is currently challenging Sen. Dianne Feinstein for her U.S. Senate seat in Washington, D.C., introduced the initiative in 2017 to create, improve or increase access to recreational areas while also protecting the environment. “Many Californians across the state lack access to safe parks, wildlife, trails, and recreation areas, which limits their ability to experience the outdoors, improve their physical and emotional health, exercise, and connect with their communities,” the initiative’s language stated. “Investments to create and improve parks and recreation areas, and to create trail networks that provide access from neighborhoods to parks, wildlife, and recreational opportunities, will help ensure all Californians have access to safe places to exercise and enjoy recreational activities. “Continued investments in the state’s parks, wildlife and ecological areas, trails, and natural resources, and greening urban areas will help mitigate the effects of climate change, making cities more livable, and will protect California’s natural resources for future generations,” the initiative continued. Improving California’s water infrastructure was also a focus or Proposition 68. “California’s water infrastructure continues to age and deteriorate,” the initiative’s language stated. “Protecting and restoring lakes, rivers, streams, and the state’s diverse ecosystems is a critical part of the state’s water future and ensures the quality of life for all Californians.” Several Southern California waterways will receive millions of dollars under the initiative for conservation and management programs: • Two conservancies (Santa Monica Mountains, San Gabriel and Lower Los Angeles Rivers and Mountains) will receive $37.5 million, each, to enhance the Los Angeles River

California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife, meanwhile, will receive $50 million for deferred maintenance. Restoration activities identified in the Salton Sea Management Plan would receive $170 million, thanks to the bond; the funding here would satisfy California’s obligations under the management plan. Funding would also cover the following: • $175 million for ocean, bay and coastal protection • $443 million for various climate adaptation and resiliency projects • $18 million to the Wildlife Conservation Board for wildlife corridors, habitat protection for endangered species, habitat connectivity, and public access or trails • At least $25 million is available for stream restoration to benefit fisheries and wildlife • At least $60 million to the Wildlife Conservation Board to improve fish passage • At least $30 million for Southern California steelhead habitat • At least $30 million for fish, wildlife, wetland and habitat to the Department of Fish and Wildlife • $40 million to the Ocean Protection Trust Fund for climate resilience. The California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access For All Act of 2018 was approved by the state legislature (as Senate Bill 5) in September 2017 and signed by the governor in October 2017, allowing the proposal to be placed on the June 5 ballot.

Illegal Defense: Improper Techniques of Seal Prevention A dock in Newport Beach Harbor apparently used nails to defend against seals.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — A reader of The Log recently sent us a few photos of a dock in Newport Beach Harbor, with the sharp ends of long nails sticking out from its edges. The nails were apparently being used to deter – and injure – any seals seeking to claim a spot on the dock. The Log reached out to the city of Newport Beach and two state agencies – the California Coastal Commission and Fish and Game Commission – to determine whether nails could be used in this manner to deter seals away from a dock. We’re unsure who owns this dock or who placed these nails sharp side up along its perimeter. It’s also unclear whether these photos where doctored. What we were able to confirm, however, is use of nails in the manner portrayed in these photos is illegal. No one is allowed to use the sharp end of nails to prevent a seal from jumping onto a dock. Two sections of Newport Beach’s Municipal Code – 10.50.020 (Nuisances) and 17.25 (Berthing, Mooring and Storage) – were cited.

A dock in Newport Harbor had the sharp end of several nails pointed upwards (foreground and along the right side) as a defense mechanism against seals. The deterrent is illegal, according to Newport Beach staff. It is unclear who installed the nails on this dock.

Chapter 17.25 specifically stated: “Appropriate deterrent measures shall be defined as the latest methodology permitted by National Marine Fisheries Service to minimize sea lion boarding of vessels assigned to a mooring.” “Appropriate deterrent measures,” according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), include: • Closely spaced posts • Bull rails • Netting • Swim step protector • Flags • Pinwheels • Streamers • Flashing lights or strobes • Balloons • Horns

City’s South Beach, which was hit by winter storms, is in need of sand replenishment. By Parimal M. Rohit AVALON — The Avalon waterfront was handed a bad batch of lemons when last winter’s storms caused a local beach to suffer from sand erosion. City officials, however, won’t allow the lemons to be made into lemonade. A proposal to install a lemonade stand at the base of the Green Pleasure Pier was rejected by the Avalon City Council on June 5. Avalon city staff and council members stated the proposed lemonade stand was not an allowable type of commercial establishment allowed under the city’s Municipal Code. Council members – in a separate action two weeks earlier – directed city staff to work on a Request for Proposals (RFP) to a planned dredging and beach sand replenishment.

Lemonade Stand Rejected A proposal to operate a lemonade stand where the Green Pleasure Pier meets Crescent Avenue was rejected by council members, June 5. City staff recommended the rejection, stating the lemonade stand, as proposed, would be placed in the middle of a public right of way. At least one council member opined the lemonade stand wasn’t the best use of the city’s property for public benefit. The applicant – Jerry Dunn – filed for a permit to sell Scoop’s Frozen Lemonade from a mobile cart on the Avalon Waterfront, at an area near where boaters, locals and tourists regularly frequent. Scoop’s is an ice cream shop, coincidentally located on Crescent Avenue near the pier. “[Avalon] is sensitive to the fact that the many vendors that sell beverages and ice cream along Crescent Avenue pay premium monthly rents. [City]

staff is also sympathetic to the many businesses that would like to have an opportunity to have a business along Crescent Avenue or somewhere in the downtown area but cannot because of the limited or unavailable commercial space,” city staff stated in a report to council members. “The city has rejected similar proposals due in part to the community outcry and the request not meeting in the minimum standards set forth in the [Avalon Municipal Code],” city staff continued.

National Safe Boating Week is proclaimed into law by Pres. Trump

By Devon Warren

NATIONWIDE — Boaters are some of the most prepared people around to handle emergencies, according to Ventura Harbor’s Harbormaster during the California fires last year. Though boaters typically are model citizens in terms of taking precautions on the water, it never hurts to keep seeking additional education. In the name of safe boating practices, Pres. Donald J. Trump recently signed National Safe Boating Week into law, issuing a proclamation stating it will be recognized nationally from this point forward. However, National Safe Boating Week is by no means a new thing — and wearing safety vests, though it has been said time and time again, is still one of the main subjects in boating safety awareness. For more than 70 years since the conception of National Safe Boating Week, recreational boaters have been showing up to marinas, harbors and other waterways leading into the summer months to bring recognition to safety issues on the waters. While Trump may have written National Safe Boating Week into law, boaters and government agencies on the local, state and federal level have been participating for decades.

Proclaimed into Law Dubbed Proclamation 9780, National Safe Boating Week became law on May 18 and the document was published on May 24.

“In-Danger” designation for vaquita habitat could be delayed

By Parimal M. Rohit GULF OF CALIFORNIA — A vanishing species mostly found in protected waters apparently won’t earn an “In-Danger” designation from an international agency, potentially allowing the endangered marine mammal to become extinct within the next three years or sooner. A joint recommendation by UNESCO World Heritage Center and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) stated consideration of the vaquita porpoise earning “In-Danger” status would be put on hold. UNESCO, its World Heritage Committee and IUCN could revisit the “In-Danger” designation for vaquitas in 2019. The question is certainly begged: Are we doing all we can to save the marine mammal from extinction? What more can be done if we are not? Fingers are certainly (and consistently) being pointed at the United States, Mexico and (now) UNESCO/ IUCN for the dire circumstances surrounding the vaquita porpoise. Fewer than 30 vaquita porpoises exist in the world, according to a report published by the International Committee for the Recovery of the Vaquita. Another report presented to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Southwest Fisheries Science Center in La Jolla added the vaquita porpoise population has disappeared almost entirely between 2011 and 2015. The World Heritage Committee recommendation was vociferously opposed and challenged by the Center for Biological Diversity, or CBD. Members of the nonprofit organization stated the vaquita porpoise could be fully extinct by 2021 if no immediate action is taken to protect the species. (What if even more vaquita die off by the time the World Heritage Committee/UNESCO/IUCN finally declare the species as “In-Danger?” When is it too late to designate such status, assuming the time for an “In-Danger” tag isn’t now?) CBD staff blamed Mexico Pres. Enrique Peña Nieto for failing to protect the vaquita population, which are mostly found in protected waters of the Gulf of California, from extinction. U.S. Pres. Donald J. Trump was also sued by CBD, Animal Welfare Institute and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) in December 2017 for failure to enforce international agreements protecting vaquitas from incidental entanglements and drownings. The lawsuit stated the vaquita population could be extinct by 2019 – about two years earlier than mentioned in a press release published by CBD in

least one estimate indicates only 12 vaquita remain. Committee members added they welcome efforts to strengthen surveillance of the vaquita population, enact a permanent gillnet ban, increase net retrieval operations and enforce regional and international regulations. An exhaustive search for the recommendation on UNESCO’s website revealed a draft decision with several actions There are fewer than 30 vaquita porpoises remaining worldwide, according to most recent estimates.

late May. “While the vaquita inhabits Mexico, its fate is closely tied to actions taken and withheld in the United States by both consumers and the U.S. government. Consumers have contributed to the vaquita’s precipitous decline by unwittingly demanding, purchasing, and consuming seafood products from the Upper Gulf of California caught by fishermen using vaquita-harmful gillnets,” the joint lawsuit stated. “The U.S. government has contributed to the vaquita’s decline by failing to keep such seafood out of the market as required by law. “The United States has long had

both the authority and the mandate to ensure that foreign nations that export seafood to the United States meet the same strong marine mammal protection standards that apply to U.S. fishermen,” the lawsuit continued. Let’s first try to figure out the UNESCO/IUCN position.

World Heritage Committee – Not Hitting Panic Button Yet UNESCO’s World Heritage Committee stated it has “utmost concern” about the vaquita’s current population status. Some reports state there are fewer than 30 vaquita remaining; at

The April 2018 issue of World Heritage magazine, which is published by UNESCO, said the attempt to save the vaquita is “a story of (failed) conservation.” Efforts to conserve or protect the Upper Gulf of California, where vaquitas are common, have been in effect since 1993. “The vaquita population declined 90 percent between 2011 and 2016, leaving the population at an estimated 30 individuals,” the magazine’s feature story on vaquitas stated. “As we continue to witness this decline and legal fishing activities are suspended, the government struggles to control totoaba poaching and its illegal trade. “A weak governance system, where See VAQUITA page 20

Classics – Phantom on the Columbia River, which runs through Oregon, Washington and Canada. Her aim at this time was to protect the Kaiser Shipyard, and she was painted gray from bower to stern and re-fitted with a 30-caliber machine gun on her foredeck.

By Devon Warren In this feature, The Log looks at notable boats — sail and power — that continue to turn heads in Southern California harbors. Boat name: Phantom Length: 50 ft. Draft: 12’10” Beam: 3’8” Year Built: 1936 The Origins: Not many boats can claim the legend that is Phantom, a 50-foot wheelhouse cruiser christened on Jan. 19, 1936. She was designed by the well-known naval architect, Joseph Dyer, and was constructed at Astoria Marine Construction Shipyard.

The Theft of Phantom: A few decades later in the 1980s, Phantom was stolen, run into the Columbia Bar and left as abandoned. Her rescuer, a famed wooden boat enthusiast and member of Portland Yacht Club, Chuck Kellogg, spent three years restoring Phantom to her original glory.

Original interior & re-fit: Phantom is made of double-planked Port Orford cedar over oak stringers with teak houses, teak decks and Honduran mahogany paneling inside. With a luxurious interior, a vanity was added for the first owner’s wife. There is also a bathtub constructed in Monel and a gas fireplace suitable for the damp, cold seasons in the Pacific Northwest. Though she was originally powered by twin Palmer Conversion Ford V8 engines, she is now fitted with two 240hp Yanmar engines, which are capable of reaching 21 knots.

At Home in Newport Beach: The current owners Rick Ingold and Dean Kiser purchased Phantom in March 2017. “Phantom now flies the Balboa Yacht Club burgee

Phantom’s Naval Service: In 1941, Phantom was requisitioned by the U.S. Navy and served as a patrol

and calls Newport Beach her home port,” says Kiser, who also cites he enjoys taking the family to Catalina for the weekends on this incredible boat. Awards & Honors: Anyone who lays an eye on Phantom recognizes she’s an especially valuable and historic wooden boat. In 2017, Phantom won “People Choice Over 40 Feet” and the “Harbor Masters Award” at the Newport Beach Wooden Boat Festival.

legal frameworks are not reinforced with the necessary legal, human and economic resources, is unable to support conservation efforts on the ground, exacerbating the environmental and social challenges,” the article, authored by UC Riverside Gulf of California Marine Program Director Catalina López-Sagástegui, said. The Islands and Protected Areas of the Gulf of California became a World Heritage site in 2005. The area was designated as a World Heritage site in an effort to protect the vaquita. CBD staff estimate the vaquita loses nearly half of each population each year due to fishing gear entanglement. “The vaquita’s population has continued its downward trend, fishing has remained or increased, and totoaba illegal fishing activities are on the rise,” López-Sagástegui stated. “To stop, or at least stabilize, the vaquita’s population decline, President Enrique Peña Nieto declared a gillnet ban in the Upper Gulf in April 2015, and fishermen have been receiving compensation while alternative fishing gear and methods are identified and implemented. The Mexican government issued a permanent gillnet ban in June 2017.”

Illegal Fishing Those who are monitoring the plight of the vaquita blame illegal fishing activities as the reason why the marine mammal is almost extinct. “The vaquita is the world’s smallest porpoise and can only be found in the Gulf of California. It is a victim of by-catch from illegal fishing of another Critically Endangered species, the totoaba, whose swim bladder fetches high prices in Asian markets,” a July 6, 2017 article published by IUCN stated. An IUCN report on the vaquita presented at the Southwest Fisheries Center in La Jolla, Dec. 11-12, 2017, stated there has been a continued effort to find and remove abandoned or illegal fishing gear. “A multi-institutional program to find and remove illegal and abandoned fishing gear in the range of the vaquita has continued. In 166 days of field work through December 8, 2017, 518 pieces of illegal, abandoned, or derelict fishing gear were retrieved and 220 of these were active fishing gear,” the IUCN report stated. “This shows that illegal fishing activities, particularly the setting of large-mesh gillnets for totoaba, continue at alarming levels within the range of the vaquita.” IUCN officials recommended the Mexican government ramp up enforcement of illegal fishing activities and continue removal of gillnets from the vaquita habitat. “The Government of Mexico [should] prohibit all fishing and navigation [within the exclusion zone], increase enforcement presence to a level which is able to respond to any report of illegal activities within 30 minutes, increase and focus net removal efforts are within in the exclusion zone [and] negotiate the

What vaquita population could expedite happens, though, if the monitoring efforts to address illegal fishing within program does not yield an efficient the marine mammal’s habitat.

“An ‘In-Danger’ listing would help raise attention to the plight of the vaquita and lend both logistical and financial support to Mexico to eradicate illegal fishing in the vaquita’s habitat,” CBD staff stated in a recently released statement. The World Heritage Committee and IUCN, in April 2017, actually recommended and “In-Danger” designation for the protected areas in the Gulf of California. “The Mexican government lobbied to postpone the decision until 2018, based on commitments and promises that it failed to uphold,” CBD staff alleged. CBD’s Mexico representative said any delay in safeguarding the remaining vaquita population essentially functions as a death sentence for the marine mammal. He specifically urged UNESCO to force Peña Nieto to act immediately, lest suffer the consequences of the vaquita population vanishing entirely within the next three years. “Delay equals death for the vaquita,” Alejandro Olivera, CBD’s Mexico representative said. “More than half the vaquita’s population has vanished during President Peña Nieto’s time in office. UNESCO should not delay these crucial safeguards until the next administration and let the president off the hook for failing to protect these porpoises.” Various agencies, countries, NGOs and nonprofits have studied the vaquita porpoise’s population since the 1990s. Has bureaucracy/the lack of enforcement come in the way of saving the marine mammal from extinction?

2017 Recommendations and Mission A reactive monitoring mission headed by IUCN and the World Heritage Committee in 2017 developed several recommendations to be implemented. The mission specifically recommended: • A permanent ban gillnet use in the vaquita habitat, prohibition of night fishing • The retrieval of illegal nets • Multiagency enforcement of illegal fishing activities. • The establishment of an Attorney General Office in San Felipe to allow for efficient investigation and enforcement • The establishment of “a small captive population in order to avoid extinction of the species.” Efforts to maintain the small captive population of vaquitas “ had to be abandoned after one of the captured animals died,” according to the World Heritage Committee’s draft decision. “The only way to safeguard the species from extinction is the cessation of illegal fishing activities within its habitat,” the IUCN/World Heritage Committee draft decision stated. “It is encouraging that so far only one

net entanglement fatality has been recorded during 2018 but even with the increased at-sea surveillance, illegal totoaba nets continue to be recovered on a regular basis, demonstrating that illegal fishing activities still occur.” Progress has reportedly been made on some of the priority recommendations, but the World Heritage Committee wants more time to determine whether implementation of the recommendations are actually working. IUCN and the World Heritage Committee stated more time is needed to “further strengthen surveillance and monitoring, speed up the introduction of viable alternative fishing gears, strengthen the legal status of the permanent gillnet ban and more effectively address the illegal trafficking of totoaba products.” “It is too early to determine how effectively the efforts … to implement the 2017 recommendations have averted the risk of extinction of the vaquita and it is therefore recommended that the [World Heritage] Committee postpone a decision on the possible inscription of the prop-

erty on the List of World Heritage in Danger to its 43rd session in 2019, when more data from the 2018-2019 season when illegal totoaba fishing occurs are available,” the draft decision stated. It remains to be seen whether an “In-Danger” status would protect the vaquita population from extinction, or whether the strict enforcement of illegal fishing activities would be enough to save the handful of marine mammals still swimming in our waters. Active enforcement against illegal fishing activities, just the same, should not cease in the event that efforts to save the vaquita aren’t successful.

AVALON— With California’s sea lion population back on the rise, there has been much controversy with some boaters who, at times, find the creature to be a nuisance. While many do not wish these creatures harm, they can attest to the funlovingly willful personality of Southern California’s sea lion. One sea lion made history with his playful shenanigans and has been immortalized in the hearts of Avalon residents for decades — that would be Old Ben. Around 1898, Old Ben, an obese and especially tuna-obsessed beggar, showed up on the beaches of Avalon. He must have been as captivated by Avalon’s beautiful harbor as visitors of the time because he decided to stay. Locals recalled his bellowing — sometimes unrelenting — call as he beseeched tourists grant him a fish or two of which he would take directly from a person’s hand. Tourists and locals alike loved him, even going so far to declare him a kind of unofficial pet on Avalon.

Newspaper reporters found Ben a wonderful subject for news as he was covered by such outlets as Los Angeles Times and The Catalina Islander at the turn of the century. Old Ben was even shown in a film from 1914 called The Sea Nymphs starring Fatty Arbuckle and Mabel Normand. A oneof-a-kind performer, Ben loved playing pranks on vacationers and, in some ways, led the course for sea lion performances and was A picture of Old Ben, taken in 1908, as he is about to partake of an afternoon snack in Avalon. pictured on postcards sent round the world.

OC’s Chief Real Estate Officer foresees Dana Point Harbor revitalization contract submission in near future

By Devon Warren

DANA POINT — If Dana Point Harbor were Sisyphus, the boulder he pushes for eternity would likely be an appropriate contract negotiation in the lengthy revitalization process spanning more than 20 years. However, it appears as if the infernal boulder might finally be on track to see some momentum. Chatter of a contract between the County of Orange and Dana Point Harbor Partners may finally go before the Orange County Board of Supervisors for review by the end of June after months of radio silence on the subject have been circulating recently. Scott Mayer, Orange County’s Chief Real Estate Office, had recently attended a Dana Point Harbor Advisory Board (DPHAB) meeting and provided his predictions on the pending contract agreement between the county and Dana Point Harbor Partners, it was announced in the Dana Point Boaters Association (DPBA) eNewsletter. DPBA’s newsletter stated: “At this week’s DPHAB meeting, the Chief Real Estate Officer for the County of Orange predicted that a proposed contract

earlier in the day, he had taken it off to watch a movie. Later at the hospital, the boy died with injuries related to the accident. A variation of this story is seen consistently with children. In the unsafe practices that are mostly observed by DBW, the two most common are not wearing a life jacket and not taking a basic boating safety course. “In 2016, more than 800 California recreational vessels were involved in reported accidents, resulting in 50 deaths. More than 266 were injured in severity beyond first aid treatment. Only one of the boat operators involved in fatal accidents had taken an approved boating safety course. Increased numbers of boaters taking approved safety courses will benefit all California boaters,” Fernandez said. “Life jackets are the single most important piece of boating equipment. They can greatly increase your chances of survival in an accident,” Fernandez continued. “The good news is that life jackets are not the same today as they were even five years ago. They are more comfortable and come in a variety of styles, fit and function. Boaters should always read the labels and wear the life jacket that is approved for their

harbor. According to the newsletter, this could and would likely lead to higher slip rates, tenant rents and other operational costs. In DPBA’s newsletter closing, it stated: “We sincerely hope and expect that the final contract will serve our harbor community as described above. If it does, we will enthusiastically champion its way through approval and implementation. This needs to get done. However, if after review After more than 20 years in the works and at least one scrapped plan, the OC Board of Supervisors may review a new conof the proposed contract draft between the County of Orange and Dana Point Harbor Partners before the end of the month. tract, we conclude that it undermines our community’s interests, we with their private development partLenthall, who is the president of DPBA won’t hesitate to protest its approval.” ner would be submitted to the Orange and chair of DPHAB, revealed previous At this time, those invested in the County Board of Supervisors for design plans had been insulting to resstakes of the new contract will likely approval at their June 26th meeting.

intended activity.” In asking for any final advice on behalf of the DBW, Fernandez stated: “At the risk of sounding like a broken record, wear your life jacket and take a boating safety course.” “Check our website, boatcalifornia. com to find on-the-water classes,” Fernandez continued. “Check out to find an online, classroom or home study boating safety course and then apply for your California Boater Card. We want to wish recreational boaters a fun and safe boating season. Remember to protect yourself and your loved ones by wearing life jackets and following simple, life-saving tips.”

Local Observation & Impact Bill Anderson, an Auxiliarist and boating instructor, has taught many boating safety classes at Chula Vista Marina’s Rainbow Room. The Log has viewed the classroom, which is covered with decor such as maps and photos of travels. It’s a wonderful gathering space for boaters and a great way to make a friend or two to share sea adventures. While Andeson states he’s glad to see the law proclaimed, he also points out National Safe Boating Week has a long and storied history as an annual

event leading into the summer months. Locally, there are many opportunities to get involved and beginning boaters, as well as avid boaters, are urged to take part in these activities. “DBW fully supports National Safe Boating Week and partners with the National Safe Boating Council to bring awareness of boating safety to the millions of California recreational boaters,” Fernandez said. “For example, DBW reaches over 60,000 new and avid boaters during National Safe Boating Week through our partnership with aquatic centers and boating facilities throughout the state. Our partner, Crown Cove Aquatic Center at Silver Strand State Beach hosted a National Safe Boating Week event on May 20 that drew over 700 people to learn about boating safety classes.” The first step according to DBW is to learn about local waterways from harbor and marina operators. Reaching out to local Coast Guard Auxilliary flotillas, U.S. Power Squadron chapters and American Canoe Association/paddlecraft organizations about classes, meetings and local boating activities is another avenue to educate oneself on learning how to best care for, operate and maintain safe practices on the water. In terms of whether boaters are fol-

lowing up and observing National Safe Boating Week, Fernandez says it’s in the numbers. “DBW receives positive feedback from our over 100,000 Facebook followers, aquatic centers and directly from boaters at outreach events. They have told us that they appreciate our marina posters, signage, billboards, radio and print messaging,” Fernandez said. “We survey boaters each fall to determine awareness of our boating safety messaging, and well over half of the survey respondents say they have heard or seen our messages and that it has affected their behavior on the water. Self-reported life jacket wear has increased since we began focusing our messaging on life jacket wear a few years ago.” Harbors, marinas and boating agencies in Southern California from San Diego and up to Santa Barbara make it known boating week is taking place providing classes on using flares, giving CPR, life jacket safety and trade-in events and almost any boating subject under the sun. As echoed by the Coast Guard, DBW, local marina and harbor operators, and experienced boaters and sailors, The Log wishes all boaters a safe and enjoyable boating season as we enter the summer months.

SAN CLEMENTE — The annual San Clemente Ocean Festival, in an effort to promote ocean safety and protecting the environment, will be held with an array of surfing, boating, swimming and other challenges for all ages. This two-day event will occur the weekend of July 21-22. “Ocean Cleaning Systems is an environmental sponsor, and new to our event this year,” Peggy Vance, San Clemente Ocean Festival’s executive director said.  When questioned on some of the best events for boaters, Vance told The Log there is a variety of challenging boating races to anticipate. “We have the Dory Boat races on Saturday (lifeguard competition – 300-pound boats that two-man teams paddle around a course that takes them past the surfline and back to shore – two times) and Marine Raider Boat Challenge on Sunday, which is new to the event this year (six-man teams take inflatable boats around an open water course),” Vance said. In addition to the boating challenges, there will be a Woody Car Exhibit on the pier, with 15 different cars each day. The San Clemente Ocean Festival, at this time, is also looking for volunteers to assist with registration, product sales, offering refreshments, awards and more. As an event entirely run through volunteer efforts, those who like to offer their time are appreciated and an extensive

OC Coastkeeper releases observational report of local MPAs Vast majority of human activities in Orange County’s Marine Protected Areas are not consumptive.

More than 21,000 people visited local Marine Protected Areas, or MPAs, in 2017, according to an OC Coastkeeper study. Most of the visits were non-consumptive.

consumptive actives in the Upper Newport Bay - Inner Layer MPA. OC Coastkeeper volunteers also observed 73 onshore consumptive activities in the Crystal Cove MPA and 50 onshore consumptive activities in the Upper Newport Bay - Inner Layer MPA, followed by Laguna Beach MPA (27) and Dana Point - Outer Layer MPA (25).

Onshore non-consumptive activities produced the lion’s share of observed activities, according to OC Coastkeeper’s statistics: • Laguna Beach MPA, 8,560 • Crystal Cove MPA, 7,196 • Dana Point - Outer Layer MPA, 1,891 • Upper Newport Bay - Inner Layer MPA, 232.

Springtime Blue(fin)s aboard Liberty By Parimal M. Rohit SAN DIEGO — The nine anglers aboard Liberty Sportfishing out of Fisherman’s Landing in San Diego returned from a fullday trip, May 29, with five bluefin tuna. Two of the bluefin catches were posted on Liberty’s Instagram and Facebook pages. “Today we had several very good opportunities at 25-70lb bluefin tuna. After several heartbreaks we ended our day with 5 tuna from 25-40lbs,” the May 29 Instagram/Facebook post stated. Most of the other full-day jaunts aboard Liberty returned to land with yellowtail bites – although a May 15 expedition yielded nine bluefin and three yellowtails.

ORANGE COUNTY — A study analyzing human activity at Orange County’s seven Marina Protected Areas (MPAs) in 2017 was recently released by one of the region’s most active environmental groups. The study found more than 21,000 people visited the local MPAs last year, with nearly six out of seven visitors, on average, participating in running, sunbathing or swimming activities. Boating, diving, snorkeling and surfing were the other observed activities. Orange County Coastkeeper’s MPA Watch report, which relied upon volunteers observing various human activities while patrolling the local MPAs, added 98 percent of activities in the Marine Protected Areas were non-consumptive, meaning marine life was allowed “to thrive undisturbed.” “Volunteers also counted 101 potential violations of MPA regulations,” an OC Coastkeeper statement issued with the MPA report said. “Coastkeeper says these potential violations demonstrate a need for continued community education to inform the public how to sustainably enjoy MPAs. The organization also calls for increased enforcement of MPA regulations to hold violators accountable.” The Crystal Cove MPA - which is south of Newport Beach Harbor and north of Laguna Beach - had the highest number of offshore consumptive activities, according to OC Coastkeeper’s MPA Watch report. There were 60 offshore consumptive activities reported in the Crystal Cove MPA, according to the MPA Watch Report. Dana Point - Outer Layer MPA had the second-most number of offshore consumptive activities with 43, according to the OC Coastkeeper report. There were 24 observed offshore consumptive activities in the Laguna Beach MPA and six observed offshore

Offshore non-consumptive activities were most frequent in the Laguna Beach MPA (1,245) and least frequent in the Dana Point - Outer Layer MPA (448). There were 789 observed offshore non-consumptive activities in the Crystal Cove MPA and 507 observed offshore non-consumptive activities in the Upper Newport Bay - Inner Layer MPA. Orange County’s seven MPAs are: • Bolsa Bay SMCA • Bolsa Chica Basin No-Take SMCA • Crystal Cove SMCA • Dana Point SMCA • Laguna Beach No-Take SMCA • Laguna Beach SMR. SMCA stands for State Marine Conservation Area, while SMR sis a State Marine Reserve. MPAs have been a source of great debate in California. Environmental groups hail MPAs as a necessary tool to protect marine resources and threatened species. Angler groups, however, argue the MPA system is one of the leading reasons why angling participation has been steadily declining in California. The OC Coastkeeper report was released June 4.

NOAA partners with National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to restore habitats WEST COAST — The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) joined forces with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to restore habitat damaged by hazardous waste releases and oil spills off the California coast, it was reported. Both organizations agreed to a fiveyear partnership with a potential $1.5 million budget for habitat restoration. Additional funding could be added to the partnership to support similar projects in other areas. “The multi-year partnership will help NOAA make major progress toward restoring areas impacted from the S.S. Jacob Luckenbach and M/T Command oil spills, and the Montrose hazardous waste site,” NOAA Fisheries staff said in

a released statement. “Priority activities include restoring 37 acres of kelp forest and planning for restoration of a rocky reef at the Montrose site, essential habitats supporting a diversity of fish and marine life that are important components of commercial and recreational fisheries, and other recreational industries.” NOAA, through its Damage Assessment, Remediation and Restoration Program, works to restore nature resources and allow habitats to return to its condition before the hazardous waste or oil spill event. The federal agency stated it has “more than $10 billion from those responsible for environmental harm to implement habitat restoration across the country.”

San Diego Report

Warming waters translates to improving bluefin, calico bass and yellowtail bites SAN DIEGO — The first day of summer arrives on June 21 and the water temperatures are starting to warm up as one would expect during this time of year. The increase in water temperature has coincided with improved and warming weather conditions. The rising water temperatures are now up in the 65- to 70-degree range along the San Diego County coast and in the 66- to 68-degree range on the offshore fishing grounds. These water temperatures reflect a 2- to 5-degree increase during the first 10 days of June. Bluefin tuna and yellowtail continue to bite offshore and there have been a few yellowfin tuna in the mix. Bluefin have been biting while fishing out to the southwest of San Martin Island at 155 to 160 miles from Point Loma. This zone to the southwest of San Martin Island is where a few yellowfin tuna and kelp paddie yellowtail have been found. Most of the bluefin in this zone have been in the 25- to 35-pound class. Some of the more productive sportboat trips fishing down this way have returned home with limits of bluefin tuna. In more local offshore waters, boats have been finding some action on a mix of bluefin tuna and yellowtail while fishing out to the west and southwest of the 371 Bank. This area has you fishing from 30 to 38 miles 215 to 228 degrees from Point Loma. The bluefin in this zone out to the west of the 371 Bank have been mostly the 25- to 40-pound fish but there are fish to 200 pounds being seen and sometimes caught. A 173-pound bluefin was reportedly caught aboard Pacific Queen out of Fisherman’s Landing on June 10. As an example of the recent fishing, Condor out of Fisherman’s Landing fished a 1.5-day trip on June 9 and had 23 anglers catch seven bluefin. Tribute out of Seaforth Sportfishing fished an

overnight trip on June 10 and had 16 anglers catch four bluefin tuna and one yellowtail. The fishing around Los Coronado Islands has been good for a mix of yellowtail, bonito, barracuda and calico bass. Skippers have been finding good action while fishing a variety of areas with the best reports coming from the weather side of South Island and the Middle Grounds. Recent days have seen some of the yellowtail counts get well up over the 100 mark on the yellowtail. Halibut have also been more active around Los Coronado Islands Increasing temperatures means more chances to in recent days.

(Left to right) Two separate fishing trips out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing returned home with quality catches. Anglers aboard a June 11 trip aboard Reel Fun, for example, reeled in eight barracuda. A June 9 trip aboard Helena, meanwhile, featured an angler reeling in a 62.9-pound white sea bass. Also out on the water on June 9 was Stardust, which hooked several reds off the Santa Barbara coast. An angler shows off the sheephead he caught on the June 2 trip aboard Pacific Islander Sportfishing out of Channel Islands Sportfishing Co. in Oxnard.

fishing outside of the Imperial Beach Pier, inside of San Diego Bay, outside of Mission Beach, off Solana Beach and off Leucadia. Fishing the sandy bottom adjacent to structure and the sandy bottom adjacent to kelp and hard bottom has been the best bet. Private boater Rex Finney reported a recent catch of two legal sized halibut while fishing in San Diego Bay. His experience is the halibut start getting active once the water temperature gets up to around 65 degrees. There have been some pretty good to sometimes good numbers of yellowtail and calico bass biting at San Clemente Island. Best areas for yellowtail have been while fishing off West Cove, Pyramid Cove, White Rock and Purse Seine Rock. Live squid has been the best bait for the yellowtail and calico bass. Squid has been hard to catch for bait but at times Skippers report being able to jig a bit of squid for bait at night at West Cove and Pyramid Cove. There have been some pretty good numbers of yellowtail biting for boats fishing spots around the middle part of the front side of Catalina Island, as well as for those fishing the back side at spots between the V’s and Ben Weston. The spring fishing season is getting ready to roll over into summer and the water temperatures and the fishing are both heating up. The prime summer months are upon us and I hope you can get on the water and get in on the action. Keep on fishing and I hope to see you out on the water!

SoCal and Baja’s #1 Source for Fresh and Saltwater Fishing

SALTWATER OCEAN FISHING REPORT By Terrence Berg BLUEFIN TUNA UNPREDICTABLE: The bluefin tuna have been all over the map this past week, but with generally much slower and less consistent fishing this past week. The fish have been everywhere from half-day to two-day range and everyplace in between. Anglers are seeing lots of fish running from 20 to 200 pounds, but they haven’t been biting very well. Most have been 20 to 30 pounds. Perhaps the best score came on a two-day trip aboard Pacific Voyager out of Seaforth Sportfishing that returned on June 4. The 16 anglers on this trip had 44 bluefin, one yellowfin tuna, and five yellowtails, but Condor out of Fisherman’s Landing radioed in on June 6 with limits of 20- to 30-pound bluefin for all on board. One of the best fish of the week came on Prowler, out of Seaforth, on June 2, when 15 anglers on a 1.5-day trip managed to land a 160-pounder. That was the only fish of the day after sliding up on schools all day. Fisherman III out of H&M Landing had 32 anglers on a June 4 half-day and two bluefin tuna were landed along with 50 mackerel, 31 rockfish, and four sculpin. Go figure. Old Glory out of H&M Landing was on an overnight trip on June 2 with 29 anglers and landed just one bluefin and 40 rockfish. SAN DIEGO YELLOWTAIL PRETTY GOOD: The weekend bite for yellowtail on full-day trips out of San Diego was very good, and the action has continued into this week, but just with fewer

numbers in the bag. Mission Belle out of Point Loma Sportfishing had a full-day trip on June 6, and the 31 anglers on board caught 35 yellowtails, 29 keeper calico bass, 11 barracuda, seven rockfish, and two barracuda. The June 4 trip with 22 anglers produced 41 yellowtails, 30 calicos, seven whitefish, and five bonito, while a June 3 trip with 21 anglers returned with 64 yellowtails, 18 calico bass, three bonito, and three rockfish. Liberty out of Fisherman’s Landing has also been running full-day trips, and the June 6 jaunt with 29 anglers produced just 20 yellowtails and five calicos. The best trip of the past week was June 4, when 29 anglers landed 91 yellowtail and 10 calicos. Also on June 4, San Diego out of Seaforth Sportfishing had 33 anglers on its full-day trip and landed 109 yellowtails and 35 calico bass. But the June 6 trip this week with 37 anglers produced just 19 yellowtails, 48 rockfish, 20 barracuda, and two bonito. LOS ANGELES-ORANGE COUNTY UPDATE: The Catalina Island and San Clemente Island bites are finally starting to really heat up with a lot of yellowtail showing in the past week, along with decent bass action, and good bottom fish still showing. Some yellows are also showing up along the nearshore kelp paddies, and the surface bite is improving near the coast, too, as water temperatures rise quickly with the warming weather. Thunderbird out of Davey’s Locker in Balboa had 30 anglers on an overnight trip June 6 and landed 57 yellowtails, 132 rockfish, 68 whitefish, and 13 calico bass. The June 5 overnight with 30 anglers produced 30 yellowtails. But even Western Pride, on a half-day trip June 6 with 29

anglers, managed to get one yellowtail, 35 calico bass, 12 perch, five sheephead, four sand bass, and two whitefish. Sport King out of L.A. Waterfront Sportfishing had 39 anglers on its June 5 three-quarter-day trip and landed one yellowtail along with 95 whitefish, 15 calico bass, 11 sheephead, 10 perch, and three bonito. The June 4 trip with 28 anglers returned with nine yellowtails, 35 whitefish, 27 bonito, six sheephead, and five keeper calicos. There were 35 yellowtails hoisted over the rails aboard Pursuit out of 22nd Street Landing on its June 6 full-day trip. The 70 anglers on board also landed 57 bonito, 33 keeper calicos, 11 whitefish, 10 perch, six sheephead, three barracuda, and one halibut. The June 4 trip with 25 anglers produced 31 yellowtails along with 35 bonito, 22 calico bass, 10 whitefish, five sheephead, five barracuda, and two perch. OXNARD TO SANTA BARBARA UPDATE: While afternoon winds continue to be a problem, most landings in the Oxnard to Santa Barbara region are running boats every day and finding good to excellent rockfish action, and the surface bite is actually pretty good with both white sea bass and yellowtail showing in the counts most days. The calico bass are also picking up. At Channel Islands Sportfishing in Oxnard, Aloha Spirit had 19 anglers on June 6’s all-day trip, and they landed one white sea bass, 84 rockfish, nine whitefish, and two sculpin. Sea Jay had 10 anglers on its June 6 full-day, and they caught three white sea bass, one yellowtail, along with 27 keeper calicos, four rockfish, and one sheephead. At Hook’s Sporfishing in Oxnard, New Hustler had 22 anglers on an overnight trip on Sunday, and they landed 220 rockfish, 140 whitefish,

seven lingcod, and six sheephead. At Ventura Sportfishing in Ventura, Amigo was on a full-day trip with 10 anglers, and they landed one white sea bass, 75 whitefish, 34 rockfish, 10 calico bass, and nine barracuda. At Sea Landing in Santa Barbara, there were 21 anglers on Coral Sea’s three-quarter-day trip June 6, and they landed limits of 210 assorted rockfish along with one lingcod.
