Lying awake aboard the Laughing Gull about an hour before dawn in early January, I heard something heavy bump into our bow. Expecting to see a log I looked out and was able to see this 24-26' pontoon boat tangled up in our anchor line. Luckily wind and current were light enough that Laughing Gull was not damaged and I could untangle the boat and secure it to our stern cleat. I called the sheriff's office and they arrived on the shore at dawn. I towed the boat to a nearby dock for them. It seems that an extreme high tide had raised the boat off a dock side lift a half mile from where we were anchored.
