AVALON, CATALINA ISLAND - July started with a bang - literally - thanks to the many individuals and businesses that contributed to the fantastic fire works display. Summer hit the ground running in the harbor with all moorings occupied and boats anchoring over the holiday weekend. Then a heavy surge hit on Sunday, July 6th, causing a different kind of excitement. There was damage caused to both the fuel dock and float, many skiffs broke loose from the dinghy docks or filled with water, all but two lines on the Hamilton Cove dock snapped, the ramps were raised, and the pump out dock, dinghy docks and end float had to be disconnected. All in all, it was a busy day for the Harbor Patrolman.
