I Wright said. "But we did a thor- ough investigation of the hull and there was no damage from a fish whatsoever." Wright was also the designat- ed captain on the crossing that included the crew and seven pas- sengers. Wright said the crew called Vessel Assist in case the boat had been damaged and needed a tow, but it was not needed and the Flyer completed its crossing. "We were on time," Wright said. After the unrelated repair work on the boat's hull, the Flyer is expected to return to normal service today. Wright said it is not unusual for a ferryboat tohit a large fish while making a crossing to or from Catalina. "I have seen a lot more fish in the area now that the water is warming up" Wright said. "I have seen about a half a dozen large sharks recently." Wright said he thinks the Flyer may have hit a mola mola because of its tendency to float slowly near the surface of the t wa.t;r, .while other fish usually quickly and can avoid being !t by a boat. j - ng "the write stuff" Are you a writer, or would like to be one for the Catalina Islander.
