Sport (#) (-1937), 35-foot lobster fishing boat disappeared in the vicinity of San Clemente Island sometime between Christmas and the first of the year with a crew of two – Frank Vincent of San Pedro and a individual only known as Fernando. The two were reportedly engaged in lobster fishing off the coast of the island. In early January 1937, the Coast Guard searched the area around San Pedro and San Clemente for the men. No information was found as to the results of that search.
