Commissioners agree to supply automated trash project with up to $100,000 for one year. By Parimal M. Rohit

SAN DIEGO — A one-year pilot program proposing to remove marine debris from the Port of San Diego’s waters earned the support of the port district’s Board of Port Commissioners, Jan. 9. Zephyr Debris Removal’s project would, according to port district staff, demonstrate a “skimming vessel for marine debris removal.” Commissioners specifically approved a resolution to fund Zephyr Debris Removal’s one-year pilot program for up to $100,000. The marine debris vessel is one of four pilot project proposals for the Port of San Diego’s “blue economy” incubator, which were approved by the Board of Port Commissioners. The other proposals approved by the port district, as part of it second round of consideration, will focus on the development of oil sensor technology, an ocean monitoring platform and offshore aquaculture infrastructure. Blue economy projects focus on aquaculture-themed ventures. “We’re environmental stewards,” Commissioner Dan Malcolm said,

expressing his support in the port district’s pursuit of various blue economy initiatives. Malcolm added the pilot projects would also be good investments for the port district, as funding proposals for marine debris removal, boat washes and ocean monitoring would benefit the local environment while also yielding profitable returns. “It’s the right thing to do. I think more governmental agencies should be doing the kinds of things that we’re doing,” Malcolm said.

SeaCharger, the world’s first autonomous, solar-powered boat, has been retired 2C

Hawaii was a triumph, a followup trip from the U.S. to New Zealand failed to see the same success. SeaCharger became lost at sea, going in circles for more than a month. Eventually, McMillan’s mother contacted James Dawson of Sofrana Unilines in New Zealand, who contacted the captain of a ship named Tourville, and an intervention was staged to pick up SeaChanger.

According to the blog post by McMillan, dated Jan. 18, 2017 “SeaCharger was covered with all sorts of nasty ocean-dwelling creatures … the rudder was gone and the propeller blades were both broken. No wonder it wasn’t making any progress! I was glad to hear that the motor was still spinning, though. In addition to the broken rudder and propeller, the hull had a couple of nasty gouges in it. I prefer to think that a Great White [shark] took a bite out of it, but it was probably just driftwood or something.” On Jan. 5, McMillan updated his website after a year of silence. During that time, SeaCharger spent some time in the New Zealand Maritime

Museum and was then shipped home to McMillan. Unfortunately, SeaCharger was 2C quite damaged and would cost DARK much time and expenseBKGND to repair. McMilland decided to retire SeaCharger from voyaging the seas. A blog post from Jan.BW 5 stated, “Repairing the boat and sailing it again would require a lot of time and expense. There are many parts of it that were permanently glued on (like the solar panels) or sealed shut (like the electronics enclosure), so replacing those components would be tricky. I think it’s probably better to quit while we’re ahead. For now, I plan to show the boat at schools or similar groups when the opportunity arises and hope that somebody finds it interesting or, better yet, inspirational.”

turtles be listed as “threatened,” but not endangered, under the Endangered Species Act. The giant reptiles, which can weigh 2,000 pounds, would remain protected under federal law, but their status would be moved down a notch. NOAA officials have said the agency has reviewed the petition from New Jersey-based Blue Water Fishermen’s Association and found “substantial scientific and commercial information” that the move might be warranted. The agency now has about eight months to make a decision about the status of the turtles. Leatherbacks live all over the world’s oceans and have been listed as endangered by the U.S. since 1970. Deciding whether the

listing should be changed will require determining the stability of the population, said Jennifer Schultz, a fisheries biologist with NOAA Fisheries. Blue Water Fishermen’s Association requested the change of listing in part to spur new research into the status of the leatherback population, said Ernie Panacek, a past president of the organization. Data about species such as sea turtles and marine mammals play a role in crafting fishing regulations, and fishermen fear the government is using outdated data about leatherbacks, he said. The leatherback sea turtle has been the subject of intense interest from conservation groups

over the years. It’s listing as endangered by the U.S. predates the modern Endangered Species Act that was enacted in 1973. The Costa Rica-based Leatherback Trust, an international nonprofit group, describes them as “ancient creatures celebrated in creation myths belonging to diverse cultures around the world.”

SILICON VALLEY — Damon McMillan, an engineer who works for Liquid Robotics, has retired his SeaCharger, a breakthrough in boating technology as the first solar-powered boat that sailed itself. McMillan created SeaCharger in a garage several years ago as a hobby, not a commercial project. SeaCharger was the first watercraft of her kind and successfully sailed from the U.S. mainland to Hawaii in 2016. The trip totaled more than 2,200 miles and progress was tracked and recorded on the official website at seacharger. com, which can still be viewed. Though SeaCharger’s trip to

Re: Make Offshore Drilling Great Again? Trump Administration Seeks Oil Exploration (Jan. 12-25 issue)

The dirty on clean energy So you spend most of the article talking about the negatives and none talking about the positives. The fact the leases are more than 3 miles offshore, the fact that oil is constantly leaking under natural pressure in the Santa Barbara channel, that any lease that is let will directly provide badly needed money to the general fund of the State and I can go on. Whether you or the folks that hate oil and natural gas like it, it will take this form of energy and more to power all of their green vehicles. Look it up, you could give everyone in the state a free electric car to replace their gas powered vehicles and you would crash the entire electric grid trying to charge them since it cannot produce the required amount of power. It gets worse if you replace all of the “dirty” energy with “clean” energy. If you want to cut your throats and not accept any of the money as Gavin Newsom has stated,

along with, “that not a drop of oil or gas from new offshore drilling ever makes landfall in California”, the Federal Government will take that money and laugh all the way to the bank. For all you folks that are not old enough to have been here when we had active wells, the law required that all that oil was only to be used for the citizens of the State, the fuel prices at that time were some of the lowest in the country not the highest that they have become. Kevin Pack

Leave the fossil fuels alone Drilling for oil and natural gas off of our coast is reckless and completely unnecessary. We need to continue moving toward renewable energy sources and leave the fossil fuels under our pristine oceans alone. If only the fossil-thinking Mr. Pack could expand his mind and consider the dangers to our coast and wildlife, instead of simplemindedly supporting right-wing oligarchic money-hungry profiteers, he might have a chance of understanding that there are no positives to this drilling.

Modernizing Fishery Management: Is the Debating Getting Old? Some say federal fisheries need to be updated, but others argue current proposals won’t get us there. By Parimal M. Rohit NATIONWIDE — The Modern Fish Act, depending upon who you ask, is either a significant boost to the country’s recreational fishing population or about as “modern” as the typewriter or fax machine. Two bills are floating around in Washington, D.C., both angling modernize the management of recreational fisheries nationwide. Rep. Garret Graves (R-Louisiana) proposed House Resolution 2023 (H.R. 2023) in April 2017, in hopes of addressing challenges anglers face when dealing with federal fisheries management. This bill is commonly referred to as the Modern Fish Act. House Resolution 200 (H.R. 200) was introduced a few months earlier with the intent of updating the Magnuson-Stevens Act, or MSA. The act governs the management of marine fisheries in federal waters. H.R. 200, which was introduced by Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) in January 2017, cleared a House committee a few days before the start of 2018. Young, who

authored the original MSA in 1976, positioned his recent proposal as providing fisheries managers with flexibility to manage stocks according to regional needs. The MSA, according to background provided by Young’s staff, has been riddled with improper science and poor management decisions since its 2006 reauthorization. Graves’ proposal, meanwhile, specifically seeks “to modernize recreational fisheries management.” A statement issued by the American Sportfishing Association (ASA) shortly after H.R. 2023 was proposed stated current federal laws don’t favor the nation’s anglers. “The current federal laws have never properly addressed the importance of recreational fishing. This has led to shortened or even cancelled seasons, reduced bag limits, and unnecessary restrictions – none of which is good news for the recreational fishing industry,” ASA staff said in a published statement. Passage of The Modern Fishing Act would improve access for anglers while conserving natural resources, ASA staff continued. The Center for Sportfishing Policy (CSP) issued a similar statement for H.R. 200. “This legislation addresses many of the challenges faced by recreational anglers, including allowing alterSee STANDING WATCH page 7

FAST FACTS: The Hermits of Anacapa Island By Parimal M. Rohit ANACAPA ISLAND — Anacapa Island, the small volcanic rock off the Oxnard/Port Hueneme coast and part of the Channel Islands National Park, was once home to not one but two “hermits,” one of which was dubbed as the rock’s unofficial mayor. Charles “Charlie” Johnson spent most of the 1930s living on Anacapa Island. He arrived on the island in 1931 and remained there until his death in 1939. Johnson was the island’s “mayor” during his time there, governing the lighthouse and managing its staff. Also living on the island at the same time was Raymond “Frenchy” LeDreau, who spent 28 years residing at Anacapa. A book surveying the history of lighthouse in Ventura County featured a brief section on Johnson, quickly summarizing his life and influence. “Prior to his self-imposed exile, [Johnson] was an avid fisherman, served as a steamship skipper on the Great Lakes, and was a veteran of the Spanish-American War,” an entry in Rose Castro-

Ban’s “Lighthouses of the Ventura Coast” stated.“As the mayor, he always made it a point to greet any fishing parties and would row his skiff alongside them, spin a few yards, and barter for a few bottles of beer.” LeDreau, meanwhile, was already living on the island when Johnson arrived. He moved onto the island in 1928 and remained there until a major injury forced him to leave in 1956. LeDreau, according to the National Park Service,“was an educated man, apt to discuss literature and sing an aria in a tenor voice. “During prohibition he made money by watching over caches of liquor stored in many of Anacapa’s caves by rumrunners and bootleggers,” a National Park Service blog on the history of Channel Islands residents. Frenchy Cove, where LeDreau built huts and interacted with visitors, is named after the former island resident. Sources: National Park Service,“Lighthouses of Ventura County”

native management tools for recreational fishing, reexamining fisheries allocations and improving recreational data collection,” the CSP statement, issued in December 2017, read.“The bill aims to benefit fishing access and conservation by incorporating modern management approaches, science and technology to guide decision-making.” Attempts to update the MSA, be it through H.R. 200 or H.R. 2023, are not necessarily championed by everyone on the water. Some claim the legislative campaigns do not benefit anglers or marine life. A blog post on the Marine Fish Conservation Network stated The Modern Fish Act would actually open the door to overfishing. “Proponents of the Modern Fish Act feel that such precautionary management is unfair and needlessly restricts access to fishery resources. But the ‘solutions’ offered up in this bill are not good ones. They are considerably worse than the problems they are trying to address, as they will undoubtedly increase the risk of overfishing,” John McMurray said in his blog post, which was published Dec. 14, 2017.“I’d take it a step further to say they will, in most cases, result in chronic overfishing and a decrease in fish abundance.” Another blog post published by the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) also questioned whether the push to update the MSA would actually create more confusion in fishery management. “H.R. 2023 would amend the MSA to make clear … ‘recreational fishing and commercial fishing are fundamentally different activities, therefore requiring management approaches adapted to the characteristics of each sector,’” Monica Goldberg, an environmental attorney with EDF, wrote in her April 27, 2017 blog. Ending overfishing has already been a goal of fisheries management since the passage of the MSA in 1976, according to Goldberg. She added regulators already have the authority under current laws to pursue alternative management measures for commercial and recreational fisheries

when developing fishery management plans. “It is abundantly clear that (1) recreational and commercial fishing are different undertakings and (2) managers can and do use different methods to regulate them,” Goldberg continued.“But under current law those different approaches play out under the auspices of sustainable quotas that form a backstop against overfishing. H.R. 2023 would remove those safeguards, exempting every fishery … [federal officials determine] is not subject to overfishing.” Advocates on both sides of the issue are certainly vocal in presenting their respective positions. Where do the politics end and the merits of whether the Modern Fish Act is sound policy begin? Pietro Parravano of Pacific Coast Federation of Fishermen’s Associations tried to put the issue into perspective. “The regional council process has been fraught with conflict. The intent of providing regional input into federal fisheries management has been subverted in a number of ways. State fishery managers, jealous of their turf, often act to prevent councils from taking actions to help a fishery where such an action might conflict with a state administration’s policy,” Parravano wrote in an article,“Challenges Facing the U.S. Commercial Fishing Industry.” “The public members are often financially conflicted and too often are association heads, lawyers or executive directors, instead of commercial or sport fishing men and women with ‘on-the-grounds’ experience,” he continued. He added subsidized fishing operations and short-term profits, instead of sustainability, often motivate policy positions. “Overfishing is a problem around the world and much of it is coming from government-subsidized fishing operations, most notably large trawl and factory trawl operations,” Parravano wrote.“Most of the large trawl and factory trawl operations are owned or controlled by corporations where the driving force is short term profits – satisfying shareholder demands for maximum quarterly dividends – rather than long term sustainability.”

TAKE ACTION So what do we make of The Modern Fishing Act, H.R. 200 and the future of Magnuson-Stevens? Are current attempts to update fishery management policy truly a benefit for recreational fishing interests? Is The Modern Fishing Act actually bad news for federal fishery management? What are the underlying interests of those advocating for and against the federal proposals? Here are a few people you can reach out to if you seek to continue the conversation and, ultimately, find answers about the true intents of H.R 200 and H.R. 2023. Rep.

Struggling dolphin freed after being entangled in waters near Dana Point Harbor

By Devon Warren DANA POINT — Whale watching adventures often lead to the sighting of other creatures such as sea lions and dolphins, but one cruise from Dana Point Harbor lead whale watchers to see a truly spec-

tacular, and nail-biting, event. On Jan. 13, passengers aboard an excursion out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching witnessed a heroic effort that saved a common dolphin’s life. Capt. Frank Brennan became aware of a distraught dolphin while looking through his binoculars on the whale-

watching vessel. Brennan thought this was very odd. “I saw the dolphin’s nose poking up out of the ocean,” Brennan said. “Seeing one dolphin is extremely rare. Usually they travel in pods of 100 to 3,000.” As the boat approached the dolphin, Brennan noticed it was having difficulty swimming due to a string or line of some kind that had become ensnared around its tail. “The dolphin was carrying about 10 feet of rope with a really big knot at the end,” Brennan, who believes the string could have come from a kite that blew into the water, said. Acting quickly, Brandon Endo, the vessel’s deckhand, cut the lines away allowing the dolphin to swim to safety. At this time, Brennan and Endo also realized the dolphin had been cut very badly from the line; they knew if they didn’t intervene this dolphin would not have lived much longer. “The dolphin cooperated with us,” Brennan said. “It was almost like he knew we were going to help him.” Brennan continued, “He could have been shark food.” Mako sharks dwell in

those waters off the coast of Dana Point and it’s not uncommon for them to eat dolphins that drift away from their pod. Once the dolphin was freed, he stopped to breath and then began swimming away. Passengers of the whale-watching boat were standing by and took photos and video of the rescue. Brennan is no stranger from helping marine life. In the past, he has been active with the Orange County branch of NOAA’s Disentanglement Team, having helped a Pacific gray whale that was caught in a lobster trap around 15 years ago but never a dolphin. “I’ve touched a dolphin at SeaWorld, but I’ve never touched a wild dolphin before,” Brennan told The Log. Donna Kalez, general manager at Dana Wharf Sportfishing and Whale Watching, said beach visitors need to be careful about leaving their trash behind and this event is an example of what could potentially happen to marine life that encounter human discards. “Please be careful what you throw in the water,” she said. “It may harm sea life!”

Fee increase would fund the building of permanent moorings. By Devon Warren NEWPORT BEACH— On Jan. 10, Newport Beach Committee of Harbor Commissioners met to discuss the next steps and actions to take in implementing protocol for these large vessels. Matters considered included determining size, anchoring, and permit fees, as well as forming a new committee to settle mooring rates and how larger vessels may affect costs for Harbor Operations Division. The Harbor Commission’s agenda stated they would “define the requirements concerning larger visiting vessels in the Turning Basin area with specific focus on size, anchoring style and permits.” “The Planning Commission acted in December to recommend to the City Council that any vessel 80 feet in length or greater be required to obtain a permit to anchor in Newport Harbor, to anchor in a designated area, and to anchor bow and stern,” Commission Chair William Kenney told The Log. “All rules applicable to any vessel anchoring in Newport Harbor would also apply.” Commissioners also discussed whether the fee charged for vessels measuring 80 feet and larger could possibly fund plans to install moorings

instead of anchoring. In addition to specifying those requirements, the previous ad hoc committee was disbanded and a new ad hoc committee was formed to review vessel fees and additional fees related to moorings and Harbor Operations Division. “The city of Newport Beach recently conducted an appraisal for purposes of establishing mooring rates for transient vessels as well as slip rates for Marina Park,” Kenney stated. “At our January meeting we created a committee to study the appraisal and bring recommendations back to the Harbor Commission for a transient fee for a large vessel installing a mooring can as well as transient mooring rates for all moorings, Marina Park slips and the dinghy racks at Marina Park.” The new committee formed comprises of commissioners Kenney, Duncan McIntosh and John Drayton. Large vessels visiting Newport Beach Harbor is a hot topic and somewhat controversial subject matter. On one hand, visitors who are passionate about yachts love to view gargantuan superyachts such as Invictus. On the other, some feel the harbor is not large enough, nor offers the type of amenities for such a large vessel to dock — at least not for long. During a recent interview with Mayor Marshall “Duffy” Duffield, he responded to a question concerning large vessels visiting Newport Beach

Harbor. “Bring them on,” Duffield told The Log, “There won’t be many because there are not many places to go other than Catalina and once you visit the island a few times it gets redundant. I never get tired of it, but I’m not super rich like owners of superyachts. Some would like us to cater to superyachts, but I say our harbor is too small and we don’t have the supporting businesses to maintain such large vessels. But, if they want to visit I say come on down!” When asked about large vessels and whether they were considered problematic, Assistant City Manager Carol Jacobs responded, “We welcome larger visiting vessels to Newport Harbor, and we’re happy that we’re developing a program that integrates them in to our harbor while still keeping the concerns

of the harbor community in mind. With only a very small handful of requests per year, this isn’t a problem issue.” Jacobs also stated while the fees have not yet been established the issue could be in front of the City Council at some point this spring. “Permitting and fees for larger vessels is still a work in progress for the city,” Jacobs said. “We’re hoping to address this at the commission level around April, then council shortly after that.” While it doesn’t appear that larger vessels will be completely off the maps in Newport Beach Harbor any time soon, owners of superyachts should prepare to spend more money on mooring fees as well as see certain regulations concerning anchorage in the future.

Avalon’s beachfront is rapidly losing sand, spurring the local City Council to look into solutions. One council member warned the city’s entire beachfront could disappear due to erosion.

What’s On Tap: The city plans to consult with various firms in the next few weeks to develop a plan to sample sediment, discuss a pile grouping foundation, determine pre-bid cost estimates and review scheduling constraints. Obtaining funding and alternative funding sources (such as grant assistance from California’s Division of Boating and Waterways), could prevent the city from addressing erosion issues as quickly as possible, Greenlaw told council members. “We were approached by the Division of Boating and Waterways, they have funding available to do this, but their funding cycle is in 2019-20,” Greenlaw said, adding the money, if awarded, would likely come in the following fiscal year.

What Happened: The Redondo Beach City Council approved an amendment to a professional services contract for the replacement of a dilapidated sportfishing pier at King Harbor, Jan. 16. Council members extended the contract for public outreach, environmental assessments, design services and other related tasks through 2023 The contract between city and vendor – Moffatt & Nichol – was crafted in such a way as to allow Redondo Beach’s council and staff to pursue the sportfishing pier rebuild in phases, according to city staff. A phased approach to the rebuild would open the door for the City Council to use the sportfishing pier as a centerpiece for other opportunities, such as determining the location of a boat launch ramp and making King Harbor a destination for sailing events at the 2028 Summer Games in Southern California. Moffatt & Nichol performed an assessment last year and performed a report. The assessment determined there were damages and defects to the pier’s piles. Activity on the pier was reduced, accordingly, what with boat tie-ups no longer allowed at its far end. City officials fully shut down the pier as of this month. City staff added the pier overall structure appears to be in “serious condition,” with broken piles found above and below the water surface and damage to the venue’s lateral timber braces. Repairing the sportfishing pier would not extend its life enough to warrant such a course of action, leading city officials to advocate for its complete replacement. Council members, in August 2017, agreed to replace the sportfishing pier in entirety. What’s On Tap: Public outreach on the project is expected to begin in March and continue through the spring and summer. The City Council will revisit the project again in the summer, before moving forward with conceptual design and permitting. City staff expects to complete permitting by Spring 2019 and design by Summer 2019.

What Happened: Avalon’s City Council was given a brief update on the status of a planned sentiment study, Jan. 16. The beachfront at Avalon Harbor has been losing sand for about 20 years now, according to a news report published in The Log on Nov. 3, 2017. Council members, in October 2017, discussed a plan to dredge about 5,000 cubic yards from Avalon Harbor – mostly near the Green Pleasure Pier. The dredged sand would be used to re-construct South Beach. City staff is also contemplating modifications to Catalina Express’s docking practices or to the floating docks near Cabrillo Mole. Most of the erosion resulted from wave action and docking practices, according to Bob Greenlaw, Avalon’s director of public works. Council member Joe Sampson questioned whether the city could somehow request emergency funds to help fund its efforts and prevent further erosion of Avalon Harbor. “We’re about to lose our entire beachfront,” Sampson said. “It’s going to happen. We’re fighting Mother Nature.” Greenlaw, in response, stated a devastating event would have to occur in order to trigger emergency funding. He added funding could be available from other sources.

H. Parker Hospitality anticipates finalizing lease for new Ventura hotel this summer Port District grants boutique hotel developer 60-day extension to complete due diligence.

VENTURA — Ventura Port District’s Board of Port Commissioners approved an amendment to the pre-option agreement between the harbor’s governing body and H. Parker Hospitality, Jan. 10; both parties are aiming to finalize an accord to develop Parcels 5 and 8. As announced last year, the Board of Port Commissioners unanimously voted to approve a new boutique hotel and adventure lodge, which garnered much excitement from the community. In the amended agreement, it was stated that for a period of 60 days both parties agree to an extension, culminating on March 12. This extension would allow both parties to tend to any orders of due diligence. Dana Severy, Senior Vice President of H. Parker Hospitality and who is leading the planning and entitlement effort for this project, tells The Log in an email, “In the intervening months since our selection by the Port District through the Request for Proposals process, we have been focused on due

to Ventura.” Severy predicts a number of events already scheduled in the Ventura area will be a draw for visitors. He added the conveniences offered by the new hotel and hostel will complement the atmosphere already established in the city of Ventura. “The hotel’s expansive program provides a number of meaningful opportunities to engage locals and make it a favored destination for them,” Severy said. “The inviting beachside café with its energizing live music (i.e. the free “Concerts in the Sand” program) should be popular with locals and certainly will offer a convenient [food and beverage] destination now lacking at Harbor Cove (beachgoers won’t have to traverse a packed parking lot and cross busy Spinnaker Drive to access food and beverages).” A public boardwalk surrounding the hotel on its waterside is also proposed, according to Severy. A planned “Events Barn” will hosted both private and public events. “We have preliminarily engaged with the Park Service to utilize the Barn for a public lecture series on the natural wonders of Channel Islands National Park. This flexible facility will be equally proficient at hosting art shows, live music, wine tastings, culinary events, and other engaging programs,” Severy said. “It is also worth noting that we propose to include a landscaped public pocket park overlooking the harbor on the nearby hostel site.”

An agreement to build a new hotel project at Ventura Harbor was recently amended by the local Board of Port Commissioners. The amendment gives both parties an extra 60 days to complete any due diligence.

diligence activities and lease negotiations with the Port District. “With respect to our multi-disciplined due diligence activities, we remain on a trajectory to complete this foundational effort by mid-March,” Severy continued. “In that our development is predicated on consummating a long-term lease with the Port District, we have been working closely and productively with the Port District to advance our negotiations. Given our good progress to date, we would anticipate finalizing a lease this summer. Looking ahead, we anticipate commencing our entitlement activities with the city of Ventura shortly after finalizing our lease with the Port District.” Severy also made it clear this project has been a collaborative effort with the Port District. “In collaboration with the Port District, we have been very active in advancing the project since being selected by the Port District at the end of May last year to develop two lodging types that are currently absent from the Ventura market,” Severy said.

“With our proposed high-quality family oriented boutique hotel and an affordably priced hostel property, we are introducing land uses that are complimentary not competitive with existing Port businesses or lodging properties throughout the City. We view our project as fundamentally about ‘addition,’ not ‘division.’”

Hotel Plans A first of its kind, H. Parker Hospitality plans to design a four-star hotel in Ventura. “We are proposing Ventura’s first four-star hotel so we are creating a new resort market in the city and finally providing the resort traveler a compelling reason to get off the 101 freeway in Ventura rather than speeding through it on their way to Santa Barbara,” Severy told The Log. “The family orientation and differentiating character of this boutique hotel, which does not depend on the group business trade for economic sustainability, means this property will draw a new demographic

Feedback While it appears the plans have been met with mostly positive feedback, there are some issues that may arise from the new developments. Janet Lawson, a member of Ventura Yacht Club, stated, “I’m concerned about parking and traffic.” With newer businesses arising aimed to attract more outsiders, certainly there is a possibility on whether traffic flow and parking could be problematic when the hotels are finally built. At this time, Severy says, “Our proposed parking program for the hostel and boutique hotel includes surface and structured parking capacity. Interestingly, our parking plan provides significantly more capacity than will be generated by on-site demand during prime recreational boating and beachgoing hours.” The Port District was unavailable for comment at this time.

the Transport Ministry said. No timeline was given from the deployment, although the Shanghai Maritime Search and Rescue Centre and a Hong Kong newspaper said authorities will send larger salvage vessels to support the operation. They said divers might also be able to pump out oil from the 85,000-ton vessels’ fuel tanks before they leak and contaminate the seabed. China said Sanchi was laying at about 115 meters (377 feet) of water in the East China Sea. It caught fire after colliding with a freighter on Jan. 6 and exploded and sunk about 530 kilometers (330 miles) southeast of Shanghai. The report said an oil slick 58 square kilometers (22 square miles) in size from its cargo of natural gas condensate is being monitored for potential environmental damage with cleanup efforts being organized. The cause of the collision remains under investigation. All 21 crew members of the freighter were reported safe. - Patrick Whittle, Associated Press

STATE Residents rebuild amid devastating mudslide in Santa Barbara County MONTECITO, California (AP) — Residents of mudslide-ravaged Montecito gathered to grieve, pay tribute to victims and commit to rebuilding their cherished community. Mourners lit prayer candles and left flowers as a makeshift memorial for the 20 victims who were killed. They shed tears, hugs and prayers during the vigil outside the Santa Barbara County courthouse. At least four people remain missing. Bethany Harris, who lives in Santa Barbara, brought her two young sons to the vigil. She said she wanted to make sure they understood the impact the devastating storm has had on the community. But despite the damage in the neighborhood, Montecito residents still have hope their community will recover. Santa Barbara County Supervisor Das Williams said residents were exhausted but trying to live their lives normally. - Michael Balsamo, Associated Press

Al Larson Boat Shop: Standing the Test of Time A historic commercial boatyard business with more than 100 years of service, Al Larson Boat Shop is an impressive landmark in San Pedro.

SAN PEDRO — Al Larson Boat Shop is a marvel to behold. Located on Terminal Island in San Pedro, this shop is not open to the public, but has a very important history in the Long Beach and San Pedro boatyards. In California, with relatively newer infrastructure in comparison to the rest of the world, Al Larson Boat Shop has existed for 115 years. Portions of the establishment installed in 1923 still remain standing today. Peter Adolph “Al” Larson was a Swedish boat builder who arrived in San Pedro via his shipwright’s apprenticeship in San Francisco seizing the opportunity to invest in the growing fishing industry. “If you visit a yacht yard, you can see how truly different a commercial boatyard is,” owner Jack Wall told The Log. Wall’s father, Andy who followed in his father’s love for the sea, bought Al Larson Boat Shop from Larson’s son back in 1959 and it has been a familyowned business since. Looking around the boatyard, there is a constant reminder that the industries operating large vessels were part of a job boost in California and there used to be plenty of workers arriving at the berths – in fact, it still is with a large number of individuals being employed in the shipping industry in San Pedro. When the post-World War II economy was booming during the 1950s, the port was home to quite a few jobs but there was no shortage of change, what with multiple recessions and a shifting economy.

Working at Al Larson’s As the port evolved, so did Al Larson’s relationship with those associated with one of the largest trade centers in the world. Linda Shaffer, the secretary who’s

Employees at Al Larson Boat Shop are beginning a day at work in a portion of the business that has been standing since 1923. Many might recognize this area as a popular set for films and television such as “Sons of Anarchy.”

worked at Al Larson for more than 30 years, said the port’s other boatyards shared a proximity to the boat shop. “We used to be like family,” she said. “Well, now you can see that has changed. You can see all the containers.” Most employees have been here for a long time. “I’ve been here the longest. I started young,” Shaffer, told The Log. Stability can be attested to as one employee named Alan who resides in Westminster and works at the entrance. “I’ve been here about 5 years. I’m the new guy,” Alan said. From the sheer number of boats being repaired, it becomes evidently apparent just how important California’s coast is to business owners, profitmakers, entertainers, the military, traders, and a whole slew of others who have used the waterways to transport currency in a sense. Standing before Al Larson’s, one sees how essential the commercial boating world has been to the coast’s economy. Holding even with more than 100 employees, Wall stated, “We have carpenters, painters, and electricians – just about the whole spectrum to work on these ships.” There are also the impressive stages the boats go through to be repaired, including the massive dry docks that happen to be empty when The Log arrived. Wall’s particular fondness for this massive system can be seen; he has a photo of the dry docks holding a ship as his screensaver on his computer. The dry docks are waiting for the next ship to



begin work. As well as the dry docks, which hold up to 1,000 tons, Al Larson also boasts a marine railway to 600 tons, 1,000-ton barge ways, and a commercial marina with 120 slips.

A Slice of [Hollywood] History

In many ways, Al Larson’s compares to a maritime museum. Just from a short visit, you can count the historical sites from the well-known ships being repaired to the original dock buildings that haven’t changed much at all since 1923 when they were originally built. Wall also shows me an old derelict building that has been cited as a history building by the city; Al Larson’s doesn’t occupy it, but they don’t tear it down either. The fate of it is still in limbo. “Directors just love to film here,” Wall, who begins to list off a number of television shows and movies that have been filmed in the vicinity from “24” to the popular final episode of “Sons of Anarchy,” said. There is a great chance most anyone who has ridden on a cruise ship, ferry, or tour boat out of Newport Beach or other areas in Orange County or Los Angeles County has ridden on a boat that at one time or another has been repaired

at Al Larson. With a wide clientele, Al Larson fixes most everything from boats at Hornblower’s including the late John Wayne’s boat, Wild Goose, to naval fleets, barges, tugboats, and more. Al Larson’s is making repairs on boats from all kinds of clientele. At one time, recreational yachts were fixed at Al Larson, but over the years that was phased out. “We concentrate on boats starting at 60-feet and move beyond that,” Wall stated. As one of the few notable commercial boatyards between San Diego and San Francisco, it makes sense to focus on the aspect of business where there is not as much competition. For the past 40 years, Al Larson’s has run lease-free. Wall explains that means they have a kind of 90-day lease and it’s a complicated matter. “If you want to know more about that,” Wall frankly stated, “you can contact the city and ask them.” While the history may be the main selling point, it’s notable to mention that in 2017 Port of Los Angeles, which is in close proximity to Al Larson Boat Shop, broke the all-time record for cargo volume at 9,343,192 20-Foot Equivalent Units. The Port of Los Angeles, in its 110year history, has thrived off of its global maritime movement. When your business is navigating cargo through the waterways – be it supplies, products or passengers – it is fair to say there is also a high demand for repairing the vessels carrying the cargo. Al Larson Boat Shop has met such a demand longer than the port has existed.

IN MEMORIAM — Jeff Trask Bay Area native who worked with Sail California Newport Beach lost battle with cancer. By Parimal M. Rohit SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — Jeff Trask, a mainstay in the local sailing community, died after a two-year battle with cancer. He was 58. Trask died Dec. 28, 2017 in Tustin, California. The Bay Area native was active with Sail California Newport Beach; his father, Don Trask, was affiliated with Sail California Alameda. Jeff and Don Trask earned acclaim within the sailing industry as brokers, builders and promoters of the J Boat brand. The younger Trask also raced racecars. He spend about 20 years of his later life making a name for himself within the Porsche community and spending time working on vintage models of the high-end European vehicle brand. A brief statement of Trask’s life described the former sailor as witty and warm.

Trask was in the presence of his wife, Tracy, and sons Andrew, Jonathan and Christian at the time of his Jeff Trask death. He is also survived by his father and two sisters (Katie Worthington and Jillian Mack). A celebration of Trask’s life was held Jan. 6 at Bridge Community Church in Orange, California. A GoFundMe page was set up on Dec. 24, 2017. Nearly $92,500 was raised as of Jan. 12; the donation goal was set at $100,000. The fundraiser, according to the page, was set up to help pay for Trask’s medical bills; Trask died five days later. The website is at jeff-trasks-family-support. The GoFundMe page detailed Trask’s battle with cancer. He was initially diagnosed with cancer in August 2015; the cancer was in remission a few months later but returned in March 2017.

High Seas: Marijuana, Boating and You Cannabis is now welcome in California, but green on the water remains in a grey area. By Parimal M. Rohit

STATEWIDE — The dawn of 2018 was met with relaxed excitement by California’s marijuana supporters, as recreational cannabis use became an accepted activity under state law. Lighting up a joint within California came with certain qualifiers and restrictions, to be sure, but recreational marijuana use is no longer fully prohibited. Legalizing marijuana on land is one thing – what does California’s new policy mean for boaters? Marijuana, to be fair, remains illegal at the federal level, which could pose issues for anyone who wants to light up a joint while aboard a boat or personal watercraft. Federal laws are generally applicable on all navigable waters. The Coast Guard, accordingly, can supersede California law and would be within its perfunctory duties to board your boat if they suspect marijuana or other drug use. A reader-submitted letter to The Log’s editor asked: What does California’s new marijuana policy means for boaters? “With marijuana being legal for recreational use, I can see that it would be easy for skippers and crew to believe this is no big deal assuming one would not operate the boat [while] impaired,” the reader stated in his letter. “What does that mean since there appears to be no test to determine impairment, but only presence of marijuana in the bloodstream? “I wonder if I need to be sure to make a point of telling my friends who

sail with me to be sure they are not carrying their ‘legal’ marijuana when aboard my boat,” he continued. The Log researched the issue and reached out to various law enforcement personnel. Some elements of California’s marijuana law are clear: Recreational marijuana use cannot be consumed in public, nor could anyone younger than 21 years of age possess cannabis, for any reason. A boater operating any vessel under the influence of marijuana could certainly be subject to DUI charges under Harbor and Navigations Code Section 655(b). The state law specifically prohibits anyone from operating any sort of watercraft “while under the influence of an alcoholic beverage, any drug, or the combined influence of an alcoholic beverage and any drug.” Clarity appears to end here. One cannot possess recreational marijuana in an open container, for example. In the context of recreational marijuana, what, exactly, is an open container? At least one law enforcement officer who spoke with The Log on this issue said he knows what an open container of alcohol looks like but has no idea whether he could identify the recreational marijuana equivalent. A L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy told The Log a few issues are still being ironed out by the state legislature, which means regulating recreational marijuana use on the water isn’t yet a straightforward matter. “Some things that we may not enforce anymore are still being enforced by the USCG,” Dep. Richard Nichol, who operates out of Marina del Rey’s Sheriff Station, told The Log. “From what I understand, Senate Bill 65 is still being worked on and may soon shed some new light on future possession/ingestion of marijuana on

California officially made it easier for marijuana smokers to light up this year, but what does the new law mean for boaters and those visiting local marinas? Law enforcement officials are still trying to figure it all out.

boats.” He added federal and state laws continue to be in conflict. “Currently, any violation of boating law (operational, equipment etc.) coupled with the smell of marijuana would typically result in a boating under the influence of drugs investigation,” Nichol said. “If the operator was found to be under the influence, he would still be charged with [operating under the influence]. “Simple possession is not a simple question,” he continued. “It’s still being worked out and has a lot to do with the amount. This is covered under section 11357 of the Health and Safety code. Until we receive more direction from the legislature, it’s hard for me to give you any more of a definitive answer.” There are other nuances also in play, according to San Diego Harbor Police Sgt. Victor Banuelos. Marinas, for example, can legislate their own policies governing recreational marijuana use. Banuelos added any law enforcement agency has the right to stop or

board a vessel where the occupants are under reasonable suspicion of criminal activity or probable cause of breaking the law. Any sort of legal stop could lead to Harbor Patrol officers or Coast Guard officials to conduct a sobriety test to determine whether a boat operator is navigating under the influence. However there appears to be a grey area on the books as to how certain laws apply to boating. Vehicle Code 23222, for example, prohibits alcohol consumption by anyone occupying a vehicle, whether or not they are driving. The same prohibition doesn’t necessarily apply to boats. The Log was unable to determine whether the Harbor and Navigations code makes it illegal to possess recreational marijuana on a boat. Yet another question is whether the Coast Guard, in light of California’s new policy, will be more aggressive in monitoring recreational marijuana use at local harbors, marinas and ports. The Log will continue to pursue these questions and more.

Federal officials declare California sea lion population as rebounded

By Parimal M. Rohit

STATEWIDE — California sea lions have reached the same carrying capacity as the species did in 2008, according to the result of new research and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries. Numbers of the pinnipeds declined after 2008 due to a prolonged warming of waters off the California coast, NOAA Fisheries staff stated. Federal officials credited the Marine Mammal Protection Act, or MMPA, as the reason why the California sea lion population has been able to rebound. The MMPA establishes goals for each species covered under the policy;

tracked sea lion numbers in Southern California’s Channel Islands for years, stated. “The marine environment is always changing, and their population is at a point where it responds very quickly to changes in the environment.” Researchers, in reaching the reported conclusion, studied several data sets between 1975 and 2014. They specifically looked at sea lion pup counts in the Channel Islands region and surveyed survival rates to determine pinniped population growth during the 40-year study period. “Market hunting, bounties, pollutants … and other forces depressed sea lion numbers in the middle of the last century. The new study found that the species then rose from less than 90,000 animals in 1975 to an estimated 281,450 in 2008, which was roughly the carrying capacity for sea lions in the California Current Ecosystem at that See SEA LION REBOUND page 16

California, following Florida’s lead, challenged a federal policy to pursue offshore drilling opportunities off the state’s coast. The state could pass a resolution demanding the state’s federal waters be off limits to new offshore drilling.

Resolution introduced to protect California waters from offshore drilling Assembly member Catharine Baker challenges Pres. Trump’s plan to explore oil and gas off state’s coast. By Parimal M. Rohit SACRAMENTO — Pres. Donald J. Trump’s plan to explore offshore drilling opportunities at as many as six locations off the California coast has met with opposition from a Republican legislator from the state’s Bay Area. Assembly member Catharine Baker, R-Dublin, introduced House Resolution 70 (HR 70) in the state legislature’s lower house, Jan. 12. The resolution specifically urges Trump and his administration to exempt federal waters off California’s coast from oil and gas exploration. “The Assembly of the State of California supports the prohibition of new oil or gas drilling in federal waters offshore California consistent with the California Coastal Sanctuary Act of 1994,” language of HR 70 read. “[We urge] President Trump and Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke to exempt federal waters off the California’s coast from the planned new oil leases, thereby protecting California’s coast from the increased risks of oil spills that could result from increased exploration and drilling.” Baker’s resolution might be more than lip service and grandstanding, as resistance to Trump’s plan by policymakers in Florida proved successful. “After protests from Florida’s Gov. Rick Scott, Interior Sec. Ryan Zinke announced that Florida would no longer be included in the plan and that new oil drilling would not be allowed off Florida’s coast,” the language of HR 70 stated. The resolution touted California’s long coastline – 840 miles in length – and why offshore drilling might be bad news for the state’s ecosystem and

economy. “California has 840 miles of coastline with five of California’s most populous counties bordering the Pacific Ocean. California’s coastal economy from those counties bordering the Pacific Ocean creates $662 billion in wages and $1.7 trillion in Gross Domestic Product,” the proposed resolution stated. “Nearly 500,000 California jobs are dependent on ocean-related activities that together contribute over $44 billion to the economy. “Outdoor coastal recreation, including boating, wildlife observation, hiking, swimming, surfing, diving, and beach visitation, is vital to California’s economy and well-being, with oceandependent tourism and recreation employing over 350,000 Californians and generating over $17 billion annually,” the resolution continued. Baker’s resolution added the world’s economy is also somewhat dependent on the state’s commercial and recreational fishing industry – an industry that could be seriously harmed in the event of an offshore drilling disaster. California’s commercial and recreational fishing industry, which according to HR 70 supports about 120,000 jobs and generates about $6 billion in economic activity, operates in both state and federal waters. The potential dangers of a major oil spill were also cited as a reason to oppose Trump’s offshore drilling proposal. Scott and other Florida policymakers had protested the offshore drilling proposal, in part, due to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon event. California experienced its own oil spill disaster in January 1969, when an oil platform off the Santa Barbara coast blew out and released about 3.2 million gallons of crude oil into the ocean. The oil, according to the resolution, “fouled Santa Barbara County’s ocean beaches from Goleta to Ventura and See OFFSHORE DRILLING page 16

Dockmaster at Chula Vista Marina retires after 6 years Mike Sullivan discusses the perks and pitfalls of working at Chula Vista Marina, his lifelong joy of sailing, and potential changes in the South Bay.

CHULA VISTA — Mike Sullivan, who has been a well-known active dockmaster at Chula Vista Marina for the past six years, retired on Dec. 31, 2017. Sullivan spent much of his time enjoying the benefits, as well as the challenges, of being dockmaster, including starting a much-needed boat concierge service and creating one-of-a-kind boating courses in the Marina Room. With a background in broadcasting for 25 years, Sullivan told The Log his previous job utilized a lot of the same skills. Sullivan was familiar with the marina because he used to visit the restaurant with clients when he was a broadcaster. Initially one might not see the connection, but Sullivan compared it to where in broadcast one is selling “air time or a theater of the mind – a nontangible thing” to selling boat slips in a marina. In Chula Vista, selling slips can be a difficult task. Chula Vista Marina is in a farther proximity to the ocean as well, about 10 miles away, which may also be a factor as to why it can be more difficult to find patrons to rent the slips. Another issue may be the proximity of the dock to the nearest fuel station. “Nearest fuel dock is 7 miles up the way,” Sullivan said, “but fuel is expensive.” During the 70s, Sullivan built and taught others to sail Hobie Cats in Mission Bay, which developed his lifelong passion for sailing. In fact, the Baja Ha-Ha sailing event really impressed Sullivan and was partial motivation for him to retire. Sullivan told The Log, “Chula Vista Marina is larger so Latitude 38 created Baja Ha-Ha to train people to cruise in a group. People from all over were able to come here. All the competitors were closer to my age, wrapping up their

time,” federal officials said in a NOAA Fisheries statement about the Journal of Wildlife Management report. “It then fluctuated around that level, reaching a high of 306,220 in 2012 before declining below the carrying capacity in the years since as ocean conditions changed.” Small changes in weather patterns are enough to alter the species’ growth or reduction. A 1-degree (Celsius) increase in water surface temperature off the West Coast, for example, would, according to NOAA Fisheries, reduce the sea lion population growth to zero. Increasing the surface water temperature by 2 degrees (Celsius) would

careers, sending the kids off to college. I would encourage those people to come here. It’s good motivation for the people on the dock and they motivated me to say, ‘hey, I’ve got to get out there.’” While walking on the marina, Sullivan seemed to know each and every boat, regaling stories of boat owners ranging from marine biologists who came to Chula Vista to study plankton to young engineering types with the brains to revitalize quite old vessels. Keeping the marina busy with plenty of activities for boaters to do has been one of Sullivan’s best accomplishments. Chula Vista Marina has also had its fair share of problems with derelict boats, so Sullivan began a boat concierge service to help long-distance visitors upkeep their boats while they were away from the marina. Sullivan also maintained the Marina Room with Bill Anderson to provide boating classes for boaters of all levels and ages to learn about safety, navigation, electronics and more. Another fun event created by Sullivan was a dinghy poker run, complete with prize giveaways and dozens of participating boats. Sullivan also wrote the Chula Vista Marina newslet-

result in a population decline of 7 percent. Unusually high water temperatures in 2013 and 2014 resulted in the sea lion population dropping to about 250,000. The population rebound, however, does have some unintended consequences. NOAA Fisheries is looking to grant the states of Idaho, Oregon and Washington to remove sea lions from a stretch of Columbia River near Bonneville Dam, where pinnipeds are preying on salmon protected under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). Sea lions and adults have also struggled to co-exist, with one humanpinniped interaction in the summer of 2016 resulted in a young girl being pulled from a dock and into the water.

ter because no one else wanted to take on the task. In a lot of ways, Chula Vista Marina runs more like a yacht club than some of the other marinas in San Diego, but without the exclusivity. At Chula Vista Marina liveaboards are popular and there is a revolving crowd of people since the RV resort is also a part of the marina for now. “People are thinking more of boating as liveaboard,” Sullivan said. “When you have a big boat, you turn it into a condominium and come in from Arizona or hot climates. Boating to me was always recreational and racing. Get back to the dock, have a drink or two, and go home. I never really thought of it as an option to liveaboard.” Though Sullivan stays positive about the more enjoyable and exciting parts of his job, there have been some more difficult tasks to deal with as well. As a dockmaster, you are on call 24 hours a day and Sullivan had his fair share of calls in the middle of the night for emergencies where vessels had sunk. “We recently had a very interesting emergency. There was an owner from Florida with a 82-foot 1952 Feadship trying to get it back to Netherlands to fix, but it popped a plank and security officers had to untie it to let it go down. I just heard it’s going into a box to be

killed approximately 3,500 seabirds and marine mammals.” “This tragic spill helped usher in a new era of environmental protection in California aimed at protecting and conserving our valuable natural resources for future generations,” the language of HR 70 stated. “California has not issued new offshore oil leases for over 50 years, and has repeatedly called upon the federal government to prohibit new offshore oil development in federal waters off California’s coast.” Gov. Jerry Brown, in the final weeks of Pres. Barack Obama’s second term, filed a request to permanently withdraw California’s Outer Continental Shelf as a potential location for new oil

shipped to a boatyard in Scotland to have it completely refurbished. “ Another way recreational boating has changed over the years can be seen simply from the aging generations changing. “The WWII-era have mostly aged out,” Sullivan said. “They knew how to fix everything and had no qualms about fixing everything themselves. If you have to start paying to do some of that stuff it gets really expensive. We’re not seeing the number of guys who can do all that stuff themselves.” However, the younger generations seem to be revolving back around to the mentality of “mend it, fix it, make do or do without.” Sullivan mentioned that some of the younger boaters are engineers with the intelligence to fix almost anything that breaks, but also some are embracing the internet age of knowledge. “Now you can log onto YouTube and see how to rebuild a carburetor from 1979, so if you go on YouTube you can see all that.” With the changes in recreational boating, Sullivan also hinted at change that may be coming to Chula Vista. The renovations that are being undertaken at Port of San Diego, Chula Vista is on a track similar. “[I think the city is] trying to create another Seaport Village. There are some rumors starting that the RV Park may move and the new construction may impact the Chula Vista hotels.” In the future, Sullivan wants to travel and spend time with family. “I have a daughter in Hawaii. My wife’s family is in Boston and they have a house on an island in Maine.” For the time being, it is unknown who will take over Sullivan’s position as dockmaster. “There are 100 people who would want this job tomorrow. I’m going to miss it for sure.” With a change of hands from one dockmaster to the next, there is sure to be more in store for Chula Vista. Mike Sullivan would like to stay active in boating events and other passions that call to him, so the residents of Chula Vista Marina will likely keep seeing his name as he enjoys his retirement.

and gas leasing. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management recently extended a moratorium on new oil and gas leasing at undeveloped areas of the Pacific Outer Continental Shelf through 2022. HR 70 also cited the California Coastal Sanctuary Act of 1994, which “prohibits any new leases for the extraction of oil or gas in state waters, unless the President of the United States has found a severe energy supply interruption and has ordered distribution of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, the governor finds that the energy resources of the sanctuary will contribute significantly to alleviating that interruption, and the legislature subsequently amends that act to allow that extraction.”

Dock Lines With Capt. Nicole

uproariously as screaming kids impeded boats’ passage to and from their slips. Both parents and kids ignored the danger. I drowned the noise with music, but resolved to chat with our neighbors about the kids’ unknowing recklessness – but they changed marinas first. Sometimes troublemakers stir up needless animosity. One nearby dock mate got cross-wise with marina management – never a good idea! – when he didn’t get what he wanted. Rather than accept the dockmaster’s offer of another slip or just move to another marina, he lobbied everyone on the dock to take his side, complain to the dockmaster’s boss and threaten to leave if the dockmaster didn’t comply with his demands. Instead, he succeeded only in riling his neighbors against him and not persuading anyone to depart. Marina management handled the situation well, calming other tenants before suggesting he move to another marina. Word later spread that boater had been evicted from several marinas. What should you do if you find yourself in an unpleasant situation? Get to know your neighbors and try to defuse the tension or resolve the

SAN DIEGO — Have you noticed the similarities between marinas and apartment houses: the constantly changing cast of characters, occasional high drama and emotional interpersonal disputes, complaints about management and inevitable parking issues? There’s one noteworthy contrast. While most people are accustomed to occasional conflicts with neighbors or building management on their home turf, people who keep boats at marinas expect life to be a constant holiday. And when someone or something disrupts that expectation of relaxing pleasure, matters can deteriorate rapidly, especially when excessive alcohol is involved. Arv and I have experienced several unpleasant encounters. At our Chesapeake Bay marina, another tenant temporarily moved into our friendly neighbor’s slip while the neighbor awaited a new boat’s delivery. One night when we arrived we found a line stretched across our dock at shin level, creating a trip hazard and impeding access to our boat. I moved it to a safer location; he restored it. I moved it again. He yelled and threatened to shoot me if I touched it again – which I did for safety. Winter intervened before the situation worsened, but I began hating to go to the boat.

Catalina Connection Avalon residents to vote on transit tax for a new hospital

By Devon Warren AVALON — The Avalon City Council voted unanimously to initiate a measure that will impose a tax on passengers arriving or departing from Catalina Island’s only municipality via cruise ship, ferry or aircraft to raise funds for a new medical center. The new tax, which will be on the voting ballot in April, would charge $1 to each individual traveling one way. Jason Paret, CEO of Catalina Island Medical Center, made a case for why this tax would be so important for islanders, as well as visitors, at a special City Council Meeting, Jan. 12. All hospitals will be required to pass earthquake safety standards in alignment with the state of California’s qualifications by 2030. Currently, Catalina Island Medical Center would not be within the specifics to meet these standards, possibly causing the hospital

the matter of creating more housing and finding more professionals to come to the island. “Right now, we’re losing professional experts,” Sampson stated. In response, Paret stated Catalina Island Medical Center is “one of the largest employers in the community.” The City Council generally saw benefits in continuing to gather information about how local businesses would be affected with hopes that this tax would have minimal impact on businesses, residents and visitors should it pass. In April, when voters turn out to the polls, this tax measure would take a two-thirds vote in favor in order to pass. If passed, the tax would be imposed for an open amount of time. Several groups have sponsored the transit tax including Catalina Island Medical Center, Catalina Island Medical Center Foundation, Catalina Express, Catalina Island Company, and, of course, the Avalon City Council. Architectural plans for the hospital would likely include two operation rooms and 12 to 15 rooms to offer patients improved care for both locals and visitors.

More than two-dozen yacht clubs are now participating in the 89th annual Midwinter Regatta, which kicks off Feb. 10. This year’s regatta added two yacht clubs: Morro Bay YC and Nevada YC. The regatta is held annually at marinas across Southern California, including Dana Point Harbor (pictured).

SCYA’s 89th Midwinter Regatta adds two yacht clubs By Parimal M. Rohit SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA — One of the largest boating races in the nation will be a little bit bigger this year, as Southern California Yachting Association (SCYA) added two yacht clubs to the 89th Midwinters Regatta, which is scheduled for the second and third weekends of February at multiple venues. Hundreds of powerboats, radio controlled boats and sailboats will compete in the 89th Midwinters Regatta, held Feb. 10-11 and Feb. 17-18 at multiple yacht clubs. SCYA added Morro Bay Yacht Club in Central California and Nevada Yacht Club in Southern Nevada to this year’s event. Sailors competing at the Morro Bay YC and Nevada YC events will compete off the San Luis Obispo coast and in Lake Mead, respectively. In all, the 89th Midwinters Regatta will have boats competing in 100 separate classes at 27 yacht clubs, with about 2,500 sailors expected to participate. The entry fee ranges from $17 for model boats to $55 vessels larger than 30 feet. The partial list of participating yacht

clubs include: Alamitos Bay; American Legion; Bahia Corinthian; Balboa; Cabrillo Beach; Channel Islands; Coronado; Dana Point; Dana West; Lake Mission Viejo; Long Beach; Mission Bay; Newport Harbor; Oceanside; San Diego; Seal Beach; Silver Gate; and, Southwestern.

Pac52 Class welcomes Interlodge VI to 2018 season By Parimal M. Rohit

STATEWIDE — A seventh vessel will be added the Pac52 Class’s 2018 season – and the new entry hails from New York Yacht Club. Interlodge VI was added to the Pac52 Class roster, team owner Austin Fragomen confirmed. The boat is actually the former Bronosec TP52, designed by Botin Partners and built by King Marine in 2015. Her design matches the hull of Fox, one of the other Pac52 Class members. The 2017 Pac52 Class season featured Bad Pak, Beau Geste, Fox, Gladiator, Invisible Hand and Rio competing against each other. “Austin Fragomen started sailing while growing up in Illinois and then after school moved to New York and began sailing J/24s, Swan 42s and then TP52s in the 52 Super Series,” Julie Servais, the Pac52 Class manager, said in a released statement. “Austin has

sailed on the West Coast but never with one of his own yachts, and he is looking forward to racing with the Pac52 Class because of its ‘convenient location’ in California. “Austin’s wife, Gwen Fragomen, regularly sails with the team and the yacht’s captain is Kris Matthews, who has been with Team Interlodge for 10 years,” Servais continued. Interlodge VI will make its Pac52 Class debut at the Yachting Cup, to be held at San Diego Yacht Club, May 4-6. The Yachting Cup is the first of five regattas scheduled for the 2018 Pac52 season. The other events are Cal Race Week (California Yacht Club, June 1-3), Long Beach Race Week (Long Beach Yacht Club, June 22-24), Rolex Big Boat Series (St. Francis Yacht Club, Sept. 13-16) and Pac52 Cup (St. Francis YC, Sept. 28-30).

Submissions for Class of 2018 will be accepted through March 30. By Parimal M. Rohit NATIONWIDE — The next batch of sailors worthy of being inducted into the National Sailing Hall of Fame must be nominated within the next few weeks. The submission period for Hall of Fame entries is currently active and will remain open until midnight, Pacific Time, March 30. Names already adorning the National Sailing Hall of Fame include Betsy Alison (2011), Hobie Alter (2011), William Ficker (2016), Gary Jobson (2011), Buddy Melges (2011) and Ted Turner (2011). Candidates must be a U.S. Citizen and at least 45 years of age or be deceased for five or more years. Selected inductees would be entered into the Hall as one of three categories: contributor, sailing or technical. Sailing inductees are recognized for “achievements made on the water as a sailboat racer, cruiser or offshore sailor.” The “Technical” category, according to the National Sailing Hall of Fame, “recognizes those who have significantly contributed to the technical aspects of sailing” and is open to boat builders, designers and sailmakers. Inductees in the “Contributor” category are recognized for “other significant contributions to the American sailing experience.” Eligible inductees for the Contributor category are teachers, coaches, administrators, media (including authored works, TV, film, etc.), artists, musicians, promoters and organizers. Hall of Fame staff stated the process “is neither a popularity contest nor a lottery.” Nominations received after the March 30 deadline will be considered for the 2019 class.

U.S. Sailing Coach of the Year U.S. Sailing’s Olympic Sailing Committee, in a separate announcement, had been soliciting nominations for 2017 Coach of the Year awards. American sailing coaches will be recognized in five categories for work they’ve done at youth, national and international levels. The nomination period closed Jan. 20; nominees and winners will be announced later this year. Nominations were specifically

accepted for the following categories: national coach of the year; volunteer coach of the year; development coach of the year; paralympic coach of the year; and, an award for the coach who best used scientific techniques and equipment in his or her methods.

Fish Taco Fridays

Newport Landing photo

Sculpin was the catch of the day for anglers aboard Western Pride’s Friday twilight fishing trip, Jan. 12. The fish count for the local jaunt was 230 sculpin and seven sand bass. The vessel’s captain has been targeting sculpin – which Western Pride describes as “perfect for fish tacos” – and shallow water bass at depths of 20 to 100 feet.

Southern California fishing news

By Parimal M. Rohit

STATEWIDE — The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are working on a final rule for the 2018 catch limit of Pacific bluefin tuna. NMFS and NOAA action on a 2018 quota is necessary to fulfill the United States’ obligations as a member nation of the Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission (IATTC) and part of a larger effort to rebuild the Pacific bluefin tuna fishery. Public comments on the proposed rule were submitted to federal officials through the Jan. 8 deadline. The proposed rule – issued on on Dec. 7 – stated the U.S. commercial fishing fleet is likely to be limited to 120 metric tons of Pacific bluefin tuna catches in 2018. “U.S. commercial fishing vessels are subject to a biennial limit for 2017 and 2018. Preliminary estimates indicate that the catch limit in 2018 is approximately 120 metric tons,” the proposed rule document stated. “To avoid exceeding the biennial limit, NMFS is proposing a 1-[metric ton] trip limit – except for large-mesh drift gillnet vessels, which would be subject to a 2-[metric ton] trip limit – throughout 2018 or until the 2018 catch limit is reached and the fishery is closed.” An NMFS determination in 2011 declared the Pacific bluefin tuna biomass as overfished. A stock assessment in 2016 determined Pacific bluefin tuna continue to be overfished and subject to overfishing, leading to the adoption of catch limits by IATTC (and implemented by NMFS). Pacific bluefin tuna constitutes only a small portion of the overall revenue purse seine vessels earn in the United States. Only four of eight purse seine vessels in California were involved in the

landing about 401 metric tons of Pacific bluefin tuna in 2014, according to the proposed rule document. The tuna on those four vessels were worth about $588,000 at West Coast ports. Five purse seine vessels netted about $75,000 worth of Pacific bluefin tuna in 2015, according to the proposed rule document. “The revenue derived from Pacific bluefin tuna is a fraction of the overall revenue for coastal pelagic purse seine vessels (3.9 percent annually from 2006-2015) as they typically harvest other species, including Pacific sardine, Pacific mackerel, squid, and anchovy,” federal officials stated in the proposed rule document. Such statistics could certainly provide fuel to all who state the United States is not responsible for the current state of the Pacific bluefin tuna biomass. A tuna auction held at Japan’s Tsukiji’s Fish Market on Jan. 4, conversely, reportedly yielded $323,311 for an 890-pound bluefin. It was the final fish auction held at the Tokyo market, which is set to relocate. The all-time record for a tuna sale in Japan was set in 2013, when someone paid $1,398,100 for a bluefin, according to Reuters. The biennial catch limit for IATTC

The 2018 catch limit for Pacific bluefin tuna is likely to be 120 metric tons, according to federal projections.

member and non-member nations was 600 metric tons for 2017 and 2018; the United States already reported about 480 metric tons of Pacific bluefin tuna caught in 2017, meaning the 2018 catch limit would top out at 120 metric tons (assuming the final 2017 numbers do not increase). Mexico was the only country not subject to the 600-metric-ton biennial catch limit; the Mexican commercial fishery contingency cannot exceed 425 metric tons of Pacific bluefin tuna catches in any given calendar year.

The United States is one of 21 nations and four cooperating member nations of the IATTC. The commission itself, according to the NMFS-NOAA proposed rule document, “facilities scientific research into, as well as the conservation and management of, tuna and tuna-like species.” IATTC’s conservation area is primarily the Eastern Pacific Ocean, including the Western United States. Contact Celia Barroso of NOAA at for more information about the proposed final rule.

Halibut Heaven By Parimal M. Rohit

DANA POINT — A Jan. 14 drift trip aboard Clemente out of Dana Wharf Sportfishing had a field day reeling in halibut by the handful. Halibut were biting between San Mateo Point and near Laguna Beach’s closure. The halibut, according to Dana Wharf Sportfishing, have been drawn to the area by schools of small mackerel and sardine. The halibut bite on Jan. 14 coincided with Dana Wharf’s derby for the flatfish. A 36-pounder currently tops the leader board. Also biting strong off the Orange County coast at the outset of 2018 are sculpin. Bass bites, however, aren’t doing so well despite water tempera-

SACRAMENTO — California legislators continue to make a case for fishing license reform, as an Assembly committee kicked off the New Year by supporting a proposal to reduce fees for veterans, Jan. 18. Veterans would be allowed to pay $7.30 – as opposed to the current rate of $47 – if Assembly Bill 986 (AB 986) became law. AB 986 also proposed a 12-month fishing license system.

NOAA Fisheries seeks public comment for green sturgeon recovery plan CENTRAL CALIFORNIA — The public will be able to comment on a recovery plan for green sturgeon through March 12, according to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries. NOAA Fisheries labeled green sturgeon as “one of Central California’s most ancient fish” and a species in need of recovery. “The green sturgeon will soon have a new recovery plan to steer it toward sustainability,” NOAA Fisheries staff stated in an official notice. A non-regulatory draft recovery plan was under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) was released by NOAA Fisheries, Jan. 9. The plan, according to NOAA Fisheries, “will promote recovery of the green sturgeon’s depressed southern population.” Federal biologists determined the “southern population” of green sturgeon was mostly found in Central California. “In 2006, the southern population – covering Central California – was listed as threatened under the ESA,” NOAA Fisheries staff stated. “The northern population was more abundant and listing was not warranted at the time.” The proposed recovery effort would focus on threats to spawning and rearing habitats. An estimated 1,300 green

sturgeon remain in Central California. The species primarily lives in near shore waters off the California, Oregon and Washington coasts. “Like other sturgeon and salmon species, they are anadromous, meaning they return every few years from the ocean to freshwater rivers to spawn (unlike salmon, sturgeon don’t die after they spawn),” NOAA Fisheries staff stated. “This southern population has declined over the last several decades due largely to both habitat loss and dams that have blocked access to their traditional spawning areas. “Most spawning adult sturgeon are found in the Sacramento River. This singular concentration of spawning adults puts the southern population at greater risk of being wiped out by a single catastrophic event,” NOAA Fisheries staff continued. Green sturgeons generally start reproducing at age 15 and could live as long as 50 years. Some green sturgeon could grow to about 7 feet in size and weigh as much as 350 pounds. “Because they are long-lived and slow growing, scientists may not see evidence of rebounding abundance for years,” NOAA Fisheries staff stated. Comments on the draft recovery plan can be submitted to The deadline for comments is midnight (Eastern Time), March 12. The draft recovery plan could be viewed online at NOAA Fisheries’ green sturgeon website,

Ocean Protection Council opens up grant cycle California projects on aquaculture, ocean acidification and others are eligible for $6 million in grants. By Parimal M. Rohit

STATEWIDE — California’s Ocean Protection Council (OPC), in conjunction with USC Sea Grant Program and California Sea Grant, are seeking proposals for the Proposition 84 Competitive Grant Program. The funding program helps implement scientific research projects on a variety of marine-themed issues. The current granting cycle will specifically provide funding in six broad areas: ocean acidification and hypoxia; sustainable fisheries and aquaculture; sea level rise adaptation and coastal resilience; coastal sediment management; marine pollution; and, marine renewable energy.

Eligible institutions can request between $85,000 and $250,000, for up to three years. In all $6 million will be available to support research projects in the six priority fields. All projects receiving funding must specifically benefit the state of California. California Sea Grant will be reviewing grant proposals for projects focusing on ocean acidification and sustainable fisheries/aquaculture. Projects proposed in the other four categories must be submitted to USC’s Sea Grant program. Proposals can be submitted to California Sea Grant via eseagrant2. or USC Sea Grant via usc. An informational webinar will be held Feb. 20. All pre-proposals are due by 5 p.m. (Pacific Time), March 15. The application review period continues until October; awards become effective Dec. 1.

Clockwise from top left: Anglers aboard New Lo-An are still having their pick of tuna, even though the weather is cooler and the calendar reads January 2018. The same story held true aboard Pacific Queen’s fishing expedition out of San Diego. The largest tuna reeled in tipped the scales at 178 pounds, but plenty of the highly migratory species were caught during the 1.5-day trip. Of course tuna is not the only fish out there.

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

SALTWATER OCEAN FISHING REPORT By Terrence Berg BLUEFIN AND OFFSHORE UPDATE: While there has been almost no pressure on the bluefin tuna in the past week, a couple of boats continue to make offshore runs on 1.5-day trip. Those boats continue to see good action on 40- to 60-pound bluefin -- if they find the fish. The abundant yellowtails offshore are the backup fish. New Lo-An out of Point Loma Sportfishing had 32 anglers on its Jan. 14 1.5-day trip and landed 13 bluefin and 77 yellowtails. On Jan. 17, it took them until afternoon to find bluefin, but they had 25 on the boat with more going when they reported in late in the day. Condor out of Fisherman’s Landing had 37 anglers on its Jan. 14 1.5-day trip and never found the bluefin but landed 159 yellowtails. SAN DIEGO LOCAL YELLOWTAIL: While the half-day bite on yellowtail tanked not long after it was reported last week, there are still a few three-quarter-day boats finding a few yellowtails. There is such light pressure it has been hard to gauge the action this week. Mission Belle out of Point Loma Sportfishing had 14 anglers on its Jan. 13 three-quarter-day trip and landed 23 yellowtail, 70 rockfish, 15 bocaccio, 15 whitefish, five calico bass, one lingcod, and one halibut. MEXICAN ROCKFISH BITE: A few boats in the San Diego fleet have headed into Mexican

waters where the rockfish season remains open year-around. Everything from half-day to 2.5-day boats is scheduling a few trips south. In the past week, Relentless out of H&M Landing returned from a 2.5-day rockcod trip on Jan. 15 this week getting limits. The 21 anglers on board had 105 red snapper, 105 rockfish, 105 whitefish, 22 lingcod, and seven bonus yellowtails. On Jan. 15, the half-day Premier fished Mexican waters with 32 anglers and they landed 248 rockfish, 70 red snapper, and two lingcod. LOS ANGELES-ORANGE COUNTY LOCAL UPDATE: While much of the fleet is in port doing maintenance, the few boats from landings in Los Angeles and Orange counties making runs are focusing on the bass – both calicos and sand bass – and the sculpin. The action is actually pretty good with two to four or more fish per rod common. Sportking out of L.A. Waterfront Sportfishing had 14 anglers on its Jan. 16 three-quarter-day trip and landed 23 keeper calico bass, 21 sand bass, eight perch, two triggerfish, and one barracuda. The Jan. 13 trip with nine anglers produced 18 keeper calicos (95 shorts released), 54 perch, six sand bass, and four sculpin. New Del Mar out of Marina del Rey Sportfishing had 19 anglers on its Jan. 16 halfday trip and landed 25 sculpin, 20 perch, eight sand bass, two calico bass, and two triggerfish. Also out of Marina del Rey, Spitefire’s Jan. 15 three-quarter-day trip had 20 anglers and landed 90 sculpin, 60 keeper sand bass, and eight calico bass.

both three-quarter-day and twilight trips over the past week. The Jan. 15 twilight trip had 81 anglers land 195 sculpin, 10 sand bass, and eight perch. On the Jan. 14 three-quarter-day, 67 anglers caught 190 sand dabs, 185 sculpin, 63 perch, and one sand bass. NORTHERN LANDINGS: The landings from the Ventura and Santa Barbara region and the landings in the Morro Bay and Avila Beach region are closed down for fishing during the closed rockfish season. INSTRUCTIONAL CHARTERS: 976-TUNA offers instructional charters throughout the season. These trips are held from early spring through fall, offering advice to beginning or veteran anglers and on-the-water teaching of techniques for different saltwater species. The first trip scheduled for 2018 is a two-day trip aboard Pacific Queen out of Fisherman’s Landing for offshore tuna and yellowtail. The early booking price is just $450 (normal price is $575). Meals and permits are additional. For more information, check on or call 562352-0012 for details.
