Ordinance inspections

Re: San Miguel Island expected to be open for public access in 2016 (Jan. 15 issue). Yeah! Since it is a national park you cannot utilize a metal detector to inspect your path or campsite. Happy camping!

Measure Y

Re: Ardell properties on Mariners Mile are potentially up for sale (Jan. 1 issue). There is absolutely nothing in Measure Y that could not be performed without it being on the ballot. Council can allow for this area to be developed. It is not a difficult process, and it is far less complex and less expensive than passing a sweeping proposal like Measure Y. Whoever you got that information on, do not trust them again. They have an agenda and are making you look like a fool.

Second anchorage is needed

Re: Future of Newport Harbor’s second public anchorage uncertain (Dec. 4 issue). Is it fair to evaluate the demand for an anchorage based on a two-month trial run?

Ventura will be beautiful

Re: Ventura Harbor Marina and Yacht Yard moving forward with expansion plans (Dec. 4 issue). Can you imagine how Beautiful Ventura would be if they developed the area around the harbor?

Save Harbor Park

Re: OC issues RFP for Dana Point sailing center (Nov. 20 issue).  The Orange County Sailing and Events Center is located in the West Basin of Dana Point Harbor, next to Baby Beach. It is a community center that is home to various non-profit and low-profit organizations that provide recreational and educational opportunities to the community such as sailing and paddling instruction and low-cost watercraft rental.

Sick of environmentalists

Re: Coastkeeper seeks to replenish Southern California oyster reefs (Sept. 25 issue). No kidding Maxx but hey these folks are using tax payer money getting grants from the government.

Use eminent domain and be done with it

Re: Huntington Harbour fuel dock shut down (Oct. 9 issue). Come on HB, use the powers of Eminent Domain and seize the fuel dock using "safety" as an argument.

Interested observer 

Re: Coastkeeper seeks to replenish Southern California oyster reefs (Sept. 25, 2015 issue). Good luck. Look what happened when the current administration, under Salazar, totally shut down the Drake's Bay Oyster Company, in Marin County, this year, for perceived environmental violations that were outright fabrications.

Finally a real boat launch ramp

Re: Redondo Beach waterfront revitalization could be on tap (Sept. 25 issue). It's funny when the older residents whine and try to fight change in this city yet love the prices their old homes are worth today. The younger professionals driving up the prices demand better services and infrastructure. If the Shade hotel and Legado type architecture offend you, then maybe you would feel more at home in San Pedro. Build that boat ramp already!

Marina nozzles, yes!

Re: Dock Lines Boaters and marinas respond to the drought (Sept. 11 edition). Great article for boaters about how to quit wasting potable water, by always using a nozzle that easily shuts off at the hand hold. Plus info on efforts in all our marinas to conserve potable water. I’m glad to see that more marinas are using sea water to wash pelican poo off the docks. How does San Diego compare to the rest of California marinas in this effort?

In awe of sailor’s passion

Re ‘World’s Best Racing Navigator’ explores the far corners of Earth ( Aug. 28 issue). I'm just inspired by his message of choosing to live “a life rich in experiences rather than rich in dollars.” Money can fund experiences, but it's about experiences, friendships and not "things". Nice things are great and money is a tool but not fulfillment in of itself. How much you make gains significance in how you use it.

Show me the proof!

Re: Water Board seeks boater input for new TMDL plan (Aug. 14 issue). Can somebody please direct us to some measurements of Cu in the harbor and to some peer-review studies that point to the possible damages by Cu? Or this is really just “a solution in search of a problem” as Commodore Marshal said?
