Pelican Brief

10:15 Jan 16 2014 Morro bay

Description
Observed man this morning sanding on the deck of the Pelican. There was no containment and he was using an electric sander that did not have a vacuum attached. I also observed a sea otter feeding approximately 50 feet from the boat. There was a slight breeze and I could see sand grit blowing into the water.

See KSBY Channel 6 news clip, "Sanders available to boat owners in Morro Bay" in External Video Link section below.
