MyBoatWorks is on a distinguished road
I pulled up 7 shopping carts, complete with waterlogged shopping bags filled with whatever the homeless fill them, strung on the same anchor rode, off the s. side of Mariina del Rey's breakwater. 37' racing sloop without bow a roller and the only reason we recovered the anchor was 14 guys hauling! That spot is where the "LA River" empties and a rather unpopular finish line for the race committee, being closely downwind of the pelican, cormorant and seagull-covered breakwater.
I'm a shipwright, rigger and professional sailor, in business as My Boat Works, in Los Angeles. I also make super quality, High-Definition instructional boating movies! I'm here to give my expertise to boaters, as I was helped. It's my pleasure to help you enjoy activities I love so. Cheers! - Jerr
