"Tropical Taco Stand," Millie See Capsule, Page 7 Dinghy From page 1 She said he had called her to say he was gomg to Catalina to pick up supplies. Scott Epperson of the U.S Coast Guard said Larson turned up at about 6:30 p.m. in his 8-foot dinghy at the Isthmus Harbor. He was unaware that there had been an extensive sea and air search to find him that had been underway for the past 8 hours. The search was initiated by the Coast Guard and includ- ed Baywatch boats from sever- al areas, including the Catalina Baywatch. Larson had departed San Diego earlier in the morning, bound for Catalina. After getting fuel at the Isthmus fuel dock, and a few pro- visions from the General Store, Larson reportedly headed back to sea to find his boat. The boat that sailed away had been subsequently recovered and towed to the Harbor Police dock in San Pedro on the other side of the channel. When Larson was unable to locate his boat at sea, he returned to the Isthmus and reported his missing boat to fuel dock atten- dant Troy Oudin, who then noti- fied Baywatch Isthmus. Baywatch contacted the Coast Guard and they diverted one of the Coast Guard cutter's to the Isthmus to pickup the missing man and return him to his boat in San Pedro. It is not known whether Larson will be held responsible for the costs of the search effort.
