A panga-hauling boat for the Sheriffs Office? Really? With attitudes about marijuana changing rapidly, there is a possibility that this may be a poor time for this kind of an expenditure. If California voters legalize recreational use of marijuana in the next few years, this boat would have no use.
Seems like there are many boats in both Morro Bay and Port San Luis that could be hired to haul the occasional panga boat. This would likely require Sheriffs Office supervision but enable us taxpayers to save that capital for other uses.
