Morro Bay-US Coast Guard

U.S. Coast Guard 47-ft Motor Life Boat 12/04/07 Morro Bay
Large storm swells reached Morro Bay, California on December 4, 2007, bringing 15-20 foot swells with some plus sets. A U.S. Coast Guard 47-foot Motor Life Boat was out for practice maneuvers in the large surf, which is not unusual. However, a large wave hit that was probably more than they bargained for...at least it's the hardest I've ever seen them get hit. The air was filled with mist, and they were quite distant, so at times were just a shadow in the mist.

Thanks to Stuart Goodman And Chuck Mayer for sending pics!!!!
