    Boat sadness...

    Makes me sad seeing a nice fishing boat like this being used to smuggle drugs...

    Drug boat found in California near popular Malibu-area beach

    I could be cruising the bay in it dammit!

    Just wait. You'll be able to pick it up for pennies on the dollar when they auction it off.

    All the pangas I've seen are POSs.

    You're better off calling local marinas and asking if they have any lien sale boats. California has a problem with abandoned vessels.

    That it does, fairly easy to get nice boats for free here actually. But with no trailer.. that's a bit of a sticky wicket

    Leo Carrillo is also a popular stop for riders on PCH.

    Good place to stop for a snack and enjoy the sights.

    In most places, to rent a slip you have to be insured, inspected and and up to USCG regulations. Theres no such thing as a ​free boat
