Last week when I was cleaning up tar balls at Tunitas Beach, I found a huge 150- gallon aluminum gas tank that had washed up onto the beach. I’ll attach a picture of the sticker I pulled off it.
I talked to Leo Morelli ,of the Lou Denny Wayne, and he said it wasn’t his. I wonder if it was from “The Good Guys,” the boat that belonged to those poor guys who died from Pillar Point? You have any idea how I could find out? I’m not sure if the authorities or family are interested, but thought I should make an effort. Enjoy. John
