May 4, 1950: [LBI]: “Three fishermen arrived uninjured last night aboard a Coast Guard patrol boat at San Pedro after their 36-foot fishing boat, the May Bee, sank yesterday afternoon on the rocks at San Clemente Island. Aboard the sunken May Bee were Robert Agoado, master; crewmen George Fau and Charles Vallee. Guardsmen said the boat broke its moorings in Wilson's Cove and was pounded to pieces on the rocks by the high winds. The crewmen, all from San Pedro, escaped through the surf. The patrol boat, commanded by Chief Bosn's Mate Sam Antakol, picked up the trio of men after receiving a radio message from the Sea Gypsy.”
