There does not seem to be much doubt that E1 Nino has arrived. As busy as the Harbor was, most of the month was surpris- ingly low key. However, the month of August was not going to be outdone by July. On Aug. 26, the island was hit by an unexpectedly harsh southerly swell. The Harbor crew prepared in advance by: raising the ramps to the fuel dock; lowering the ramps to the end float and Casino and clubs dinghy docks; and discon- necting the fuel dock and pump- out floats. They also assisted with moving boats off the first row moorings, and with the Tuna Club's dinghy dock. The balance of Aug. 26 and Aug. 27 was spent retrieving loose dinghies, securing loose vessels, moving vessels, securing moor- ings, assisting Bay Watch Avalon with rescues, moving some floats Catalina Authors Studio - Panel Discussion & Book Signing with Local Catalina Authors: 3 - 5 p.m., Friday, September 26, Overlook Hall, 209 East Whittley Avenue, Avalon. Meet the authors of recent books about Catalina Island dur- to moorings, raising ramps at the Mole, and generally insuring the safety of life and property in the Avalon Harbor, Descanso Bay, Hamilton Cove and the surround- ing waters. Beginning the afternoon of Aug. 27 and through the 28th and 29th, the Harbor Crew began the arduous task of cleaning up the damage the surge left behind. Several Pebbly Beach businesses received severe damage, as did the White's Landing and Camp Fox piers and floats. Debris spread out for several miles off the leeward coast of the island, creating navigation haz- ards: pier pilings, float debris, loose vessels and dinghies, trash bins, seaweed, etc. The crew was also tasked with returning the dinghy docks to their positions, lowering and rais- ing all the ramps, reconnecting the pump-out float, aidentifying damaged moorings, moving boats back to the first row moorings, and generally assessing all dam- age caused by the surge.
