Gladys l (#262071) (1944-1975), 38.3-foot wood-hulled fishing vessel which sank about three miles off Yellow Banks, Santa Cruz Island on June 2, 1975. The crew aboard at the time was diving for sea urchins. The three men aboard were left to swim to the south shore of Santa Cruz Island. Although Tim Johnston and Rod Phillips made it safely, skipper, Larry Greenley, did not. The Coast Guard suspected the boat's seam split open.
