January 12, 1931: “Two tugs and an airplane were pressed into service early yesterday morning in an unsuccessful attempt to save the $8000 cabin cruiser Intrepido owned by A. J. Roberts. The craft sprang a leak after striking a piece of driftwood while returning from Santa Cruz Island, about eight miles off shore. Roberts and his guests, Ross Wood, Lawrence B. Clapp, and H. Ellis, rowed to shore in a skiff, arriving in the breakwater shortly before midnight. They then set out in Charles Anderson’s tug to tow the craft to port, but could not find it. Yesterday morning Roberts chartered a plane and located the boat from the air, then set out in a Larco boat. They towed the craft half a mile toward shore, and then it sank.”
