I agree with Richard Diel (in his letter April 23). Spend more than $300,000 for a boat so the sheriffs office can tow a panga boat? Like Diel said, If California voters legalize recreational use of marijuana in the next few years, this boat will be useless.
How did the panga get here in the first place? Its got a motor on it, maybe two. Cant someone just get into the darn thing and drive it to wherever the sheriff wants it towed?
Surely the panga is sea-worthy; look how far it came to get here. What happened to common sense?
