    Oh, I meant on Catalina for Bogie? We once thought of heading up from Bahia De Los Angelos to San Felipe to get further away from summer storms but with a 6 foot draft? Nah.  Back in those days people were moving navigation lights and ending the cruise for the large Japanese commercial factory ships in the Sea. Several were lost or badly damaged, not to mention the collateral damage to the Eco.

    A ha, wrong port. Still doesn't ring a bell. David Crosby used to hang out here and party with a couple of the locals. Spencer Davis lives here full time. Tony Dow, bla bla. OK done dropping names.

    I haven't been following this, but this current discussion (not apparent in the thread title!) has me interested. @littleharbor2, do you actually live at little harbor? That's over by two harbors, right?

    I've been to Catalina about a dozen times. Only really pretty place left in LA county. The wife and I go every few years to the Catalina Jazz festival for two weekends of great music. I don't know that I could live there, but it certainly is nice to visit. We've only been over to two harbors a couple of times; Once to kayak and once scuba diving.

    P.S. Oh yeah, I also graduated from HS in 1976!

    Since we are still drifting off topic.........

    Yes! Diving for Abalone and Rock Scallops in the clear waters off Catalina. Not a lot of bugs on the front side back then - too many dive boats coming from the mainland.

    Got married in '75 and my shiny new life insurance policy had restrictions including scuba diving. My now Ex-wife fought me until I gave up in '79 or '80 and sold my gear. Should have seen the handwriting on the wall.........
    I always have more questions than answers. That's the nature of life.

     OK I will assume we're the same age then. I'll leave that alone now.
     My email address became [email protected] because I have had a standing reservation at little harbor campsite #2 for years. I estimated I camped 50 out of 52 weekends a year for two years in a row. Have a homebuilt trailer ,solar powered of course, and have gotten camping down to a science .Private shower/potty tent, Instahot shower, satellite tv, heater etc. I have been camping on the Island all my life. Littleharbor is on the backside of the Island 7 miles from Two Harbors.
