Thanks for this great column detailing the nautically seamy side of America's Finest City. It's exciting down at the harbor! Falling masts, pirates boarding yachts from dinghies, Russell Crowe's master and commander coat pinched! Plus a lot of crashing and bashing, thanks to too much Demon Rum. Harbor Police have their work cut out.
