I came home 2 days ago to find, in the bay below our house:
A large man in distress in the water with no flotation aid, a large golden doodle/poodle with a flotation aid swimming around the man, a diver swimming in a drysuit, a fuel slick and a floating debris field about 50' in diameter. In the middle of this was an aluminum work boat named "SAND DOLLAR" about 25' long with a drop bows (Landing craft style) with one man on board. He rescued the dog, then the man. Eventually the diver also got on board having retrieved most of the floating debris and they took off without marking what I assume to be a sunk boat. Water depth at low tide in this area ranges from 10-20' I took video just after the rescued man was pulled aboard and on the video can clearly hear the rescued man calling out to the diver "I've lost everything....My boat....my clothes..." This leads me to think that the lost boat is not a small skiff, but something large enough to live on and definitely a nav hazard.
SAND DOLLAR is the boat I am trying to locate/identify. I believe the logo on the pilothouse door is the logo for the WA State Parks system but I can't be sure.
Anyone familiar with Sand Dollar please contact me.
