Very high King Tides, coupled with low tides, was thought to be the cause of this vessel sinking off the end of Jade Avenue, just off Little Balboa Island. Reports also said the vessel’s owners were out of the country on vacation. A driver, assisting in the recovery, can be seen sitting on the boat, while a boom has been implemented to contain any spill concerns.
