I have a small boat in the OC Dana Point Harbor that I take out two to three times a week. Every time I go out I find Mylar balloons, coffee cups, plastic water bottles and, just this past Thursday, a basketball floating within a few miles of the Harbor.
I’ve bought a net and now collect anything I find. My record is 13 balloons. I’m glad people go out to watch the whales and dolphin and to celebrate weddings, birthdays and baby showers. However, what comes onto a boat when you depart the dock should come off the boat when you return.
