A 20-year-old Marine from Camp Pendleton was arrested early Monday morning for stealing a pair of dinghies in Newport Beach, a spokesman for the Orange County Sheriff's harbor patrol said. Around 2:15 a.m., Seth Charlson of Washington state was arrested with a pair of inflatable boats that had been reported stolen from the Balboa area earlier in the night. Sgt. David Ginther of the harbor patrol said that Charlson made off in one dinghy and then took a second one soon after, possibly because the first one didn't go fast enough.

The culprit in the case of a boat reported stolen turned out to be the knot used to tie it to a dock near Corona del Mar, according to Newport Beach police. An officer responded Sunday morning to the 2300 block of Bayside Drive when the owner of a 11-foot dinghy called to report that it was gone. The owner told police that the dinghy was last seen two days earlier. But by that evening, the owner found the boat washed up on the beach about three houses down from where it had been docked, according to police.

A 78-year-old man was found drowned in Newport Harbor early this morning, according to Newport Beach Police. A passerby came upon the man in the 700 block of West Bay Avenue just before 4:15 a.m., officials said. It appeared the man fell off a dock or a dinghy and didn’t have the strength to pull himself out of the water, Sgt. Evan Sailor said. The coroner had not yet confirmed his identity. The cause of death is pending an autopsy.

Authorities aboard an Orange County Sheriff's Department Harbor Patrol vessel Tuesday chased a man suspected of stealing two small boats in a slow-speed, hourlong pursuit in Newport Harbor. Shortly after 8 a.m., police received a report that a dinghy was stolen from a boat, according to Newport Beach Police Department spokeswoman Jennifer Manzella. The man then abandoned the dinghy on Lido Island and stole an electric boat, she said. Police Sgt. T. Hughes said officers boarded the Duffy electric boat and used a Tazer to subdue the man when he would not stop or cooperate with authorities.

A group of us were abalone diving on San Clemente Island. We were in two boats that belonged to Alex Oser -- the Ameo One and the Ameo Two. Alex had bought the two 35-foot Chris-Craft cruisers to spite a snooty salesman, but that's another story. Lindsay Youngblood, Sam and Charlie Oxarart and I were aboard the Ameo One, and we had become separated from the Ameo Two. For some reason, we were towing a dinghy on a long line. Sam Oxarart decided he wanted to take a ride in the dinghy, so we pulled it up to our boat and Sam got in carrying an oar with which to steer it. We started off again and Sam began to steer the dinghy in wide sweeps, much like water-skiers do. Finally, he took too wide a sweep and brought the dinghy even with our boat but still at the end of the long line.

Ahoy. Chuck South and Wade White, representatives of the Newport Mooring Assn., are active in solving the dinghy storage problem that most mooring owners tackle every time they want to access their offshore boats. Right now, the people with their boats tied to the mooring cans do not have any shore-side facilities where the dinghies can be tied up or stored while shore-side. Some people rent dock space at a nearby house, but the majority have to load the dinghy into their vehicles each time.

June Casagrande It's been a careful balancing act between mooring permit holders who have no place to store their dinghies and residents who would prefer not to cede their beaches to dinghy storage, but harbor commissioners believe they've come up with a plan to please the most people most of the time. The commission's plan would install racks for a total of 60 dinghies spread out over five locations: Fernando Street, 15th Street, 16th Street, 18th Street and at the Balboa Yacht Basin.

Newport needs to promote dinghy business, not stifle it I am calling to comment on the article in the July 29 issue "Residents' question: Is it a dinghy plan?" The article referred to the dinghy storage that they are proposing in Newport Beach for the harbor and also for the extended time limit on the dinghy dock. Even though this refers mostly to people on moorings, this whole idea needs to be implemented to benefit all boaters in the harbor. We have a boat that is moored at a marina and we have the same problem.

June Casagrande A plan to build racks to store dinghies may not be the panacea that city officials had hoped. After some residents registered their objections to the city's proposal to build the racks and to change the time periods for docking dinghies at some public piers, Harbor Department officials have decided to hold a public meeting to gather as much input as possible before deciding whether to proceed with ...
