The caption in the Aug. 7, 1969, Los Angeles Times reported:

Pate said he was returning from a fishing trip with a three-man crew when he lost his way. Pate, who has lived aboard the craft since buying it for $30,000 last spring, has negotiated with marine salvagersĀ  to tow the 30-ton boat to sea.
