a new dawn, part 2

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

A local record of sorts was achieved early this morning off La Jolla by a 25 foot panga carrying 22 illegals. 1 person per 1.1 linear foot of boat, beating the previous record of 1.7 (see Nov. 5 entry).

“The 25-foot boat had been spotted farther up the coast near Leucadia by a U.S. Coast Guard cutter. A Blackhawk helicopter and a Midnight Express Interceptor vessel were dispatched to help track down the skiff-like boat, known as a panga.

The boat’s driver was arrested as a suspected smuggler. The other people – 20 men and one woman, all of them Mexican citizens – were turned over to the U.S. Border Patrol.” (L.A. Times 09/12/03)

Not a nav light in sight – be careful out there after dark, lobster poaching. All the remote controlled narco-subs floating about without lights reportedly don’t carry even the basic insurance required by law.

It was only this morning I found this in the bathroom instead of the comfy toilet I perch on to peruse the paper. First I’m, like, must be one of those new waterless jobs, even the harbor is going green. But then I’m all, no way, what’s with the ladder? ¿Hola, alguien ahí? Couldn’t remember how to say “pass the merchandise,” or “incoming!”, so I just moved to the next stall.

harbor abuzzed

a swarm of helicopters buzzed a flotilla loaded with illegals, cocaine, and bales of marijuana just outside the harbor today.  a platoon of black-clad troops manned unmarked recon vehicles in a remote parking lot declared off limits to the public, martial law style. a bikini-clad operative was deposited into the frigid ocean waters from a black hughes helicopter, after a high speed arrival in a black ferrari. having subdued the aliens, the heroine saved the day. one boat slipped through the dragnet and was last seen heading south. no drugs were recovered at the scene.

A new theory is debated by the sneakaboard community,  proposing that our accomplishments have been nothing but false pride, an illusion. Instead, outlaws have been allowed to remain (wink wink, oink oink) as extra eyes to watch the harbor. Basically to outcompete the other type of sneakaboards, from South of the Border. Here’s why, in case you missed it hiding under a cloaking tarp.

OCEANSIDE —- Federal agents said they broke up a maritime smuggling attempt last weekend when they arrested 13 illegal immigrants from Bolivia and Mexico in a boat docked at the marina in Oceanside Harbor.

At about 2 p.m. Sunday, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents watched a 22-foot Cobalt boat dock at the marina, then questioned everyone onboard the little boat, according to a news release from the agency Monday.

Two of the 13 were suspected of trying to smuggle the others into the country, the agency said. Eight of the people —- six men and two women —- trying to slip into the country illegally were from Mexico, agents said. Also in the group were two women and one man from Bolivia, agents said in the news release. (end of citation)

Sadly, this watershed event marks the beginning of the end of recreational boating as we know it. February 2010 update. March 2011 update. May 2011 news. June 2011 enough already, legalize it! December 2012 update. See Breaking The Taboo.

Cobalt 22. One 22 foot boat, 13 passengers. One person + fuel per 1.7 feet of boat length. Here’s the  concept.
