Sorry no picture to make the point, but our slip fees have, yet gain, been well invested. Our harbor spent untold hundreds of thousands of dollars building a nice new guest dock. Unfortunately, the only guests that get to use it are the sea lions. They are stacked 2 deep over every inch.
It is a big issue out here. Boats have been sunk in Monterey by the sea lions. And, they are protected. Can't harrass them.

As for the monohull, it really shows me that it is pretty solid to have THAT much weight without having breakage or collapses!!

OK, I'm in the fight .
What happens if/when the weight of the sea lions are such that the vessels capzies!
Which one do the lions return to?

Knotty -

Your Whaler looks like the USCG has been looking for secret drug compartments in there.

On the mono/multi pictures, I think you are being quite fair and even-handed. Both boats are displaying a seal of approval.

I used to work on offshore supply boats out of Port Hueneme in southern California. Quite often sealions would come up over the stern roller and get onto the afterdeck. When we got to the drill rig, we had to offload all kinds of stuff off the after deck including drill pipe. Some of the pipe is pretty big in diameter and once in a great while a sealion would get inside of this pipe. Well how do you get a sealion out of a drill pipe when it does not want to leave? Well, we made up a special sealion oil pipe bridal that you hook at both ends of the pipe. Whats different about this bridal is that it has cables of unequal length. Well you guessed it. The crane operator lifts the pipe up in the air, gives it a few shakes and the sealion does either a swan dive or a belly flop into the water!

Another thing that would happen with sealions is they would congregate on the afterdeck where we had to work. The males are pretty territorial so it would become a battle between us and them. The solution was to get brooms after them and chase them off. The females would usually run but some of the larger bulls would stand their ground. It was always hilarious to chase these animals off the boat.

Cant help myself.. I agree that it would help to deter the freeloaders, but you'd have to be careful about peeing over the side wouldnt you? Sorry , scratch that, no one would pee over the side in Port Phillip bay

Those clips bring back fond memories of opening day of salmon season. Haven't found the one where the truck just keeps on backing in, or where the boat falls of the trailer when pulling out (yea, I did that one). The battery blooper is good. I can relate, only it was the outboard, and it was loading onto the dock, not into the boat

Those Bill Dance bloopers kept me at the computer for about an hour. Those are some good ones.
