Duffy Grounding

"About 3:30 a.m. Sunday, a Duffy Boat washed onto the sand at the Wedge, the area at the southern tip of the Balboa Peninsula. Orange County Sheriff Harbor Patrol officials said the boat’s operator thought in all the darkness he had steered the boat between the east and west jetties leading into Newport Harbor, but instead guided it west of the jetties and into the Wedge’s waves.

When the group found they were being sucked to shore, they jumped out and tried to manually push it out, authorities said. The boat eventually ran aground"
