During a fierce storm in Nov
2002 a dry-dock from San francisco was thrown loose from it's mooring.
The urgent call was made for
The tugs would not put a line on the drydock-because that establishes liability. It was nudged around by the tugs and eventually went aground here on the SW side of the island.
Is this the stairway to Heaven?
It was at least 50' high and 700' long
You were almost at eye level
with the lighthouse!
We tried to claim salvage rights
for a future BASK clubhouse as it was in the middle of the bay and you
had to paddle to get there. Maybe it could be a mother ship for kayak
adventures down the Pacific Coast?
About 1 month later in December it was towed away!
