Emergency personnel have located the operator of a fishing boat that apparently crashed or ran aground in Bodega Bay overnight and say no one was injured or otherwise lost in the incident.
Sonoma County sheriff’s, Bodega Bay fire and U.S. Coast Guard personnel all scrambled early Friday after a hiker reported seeing floating debris and fuel in the water off Pinnacle Gulch Trail in the Bodega Harbour subdivision, dispatchers said.
A search of the area beginning about 7:20 a.m. turned up substantial debris and the skipper of the boat on shore, who said he was unhurt, fire and Coast Guard personnel said. He reportedly had been the only one on board.
Additional details were not immediately available.—————
