Spirit of Dana Point after Holland gave the ship away, will be welcomed into the harbor by fel- low boaters. The Orange County Sheriff’s Department Harbor Patrol’s Fire Boat that will provide a cannon salute. Holland made media headlines when the city of Newport Beach said his most recent project – the reconstruc- tion of the 72-foot ketch, Shawnee, in his backyard – violated the city’s long- term boat storage and construction permit requirements. Prior to Shawnee, Holland was

known for his work on the Pilgrim of Newport. The master shipwright spent 12 years constructing the vessel in his front yard before giving the vessel away. The 118-foot vessel now resides at the Ocean Institute in Dana Point. On Sept. 12 and 13, guests can tour the boat at the Newport Sea Base. Boaters are invited to help welcome the ship as it enters the harbor for the

first time in nearly 20 years, said Holland’s longtime friend Eric Longabardi. The vessel is expected to arrive at the harbor a little after 11 a.m. and dock at the Newport Sea Base by noon.

A dockside maritime-nautical vil- lage will be open to guests’ dockside, complete with pirates, model ships, maritime art, antique cars and entertainment. A temporary

makeshift museum will exhibit the tools and various artifacts from the Pilgrim of Newport. Food ven- dors will also be on


A historic 1909 Buick Racer, the sec- ond car to ever be registered in Orange County and was part of Holland’s antique car collection, will also be on display. “Dennis was an iconic guy,” said

Longabardi, the event’s organizer. “It’s usually hard to have a dream and make it come true; Dennis did that.” The two-day event will be held from noon to 6 p.m., Sept. 12 and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sept. 13 at the Newport Sea Base, 1931 West Coast Highway. A memorial cruise will be held for the family on Friday afternoon where Holland’s son, Dennis, Jr. will take the helm of the boat his father built.

Yellowfin Tuna faces new regulations in southern Mexico

By Capt. Pat Rains

MEXICO CITY — A feasibility study to protect the national supply of yellowfin tuna is considering an exclusion zone, a fishing ban and a quota or catch limit on that species along southern Mexico waters. SAGARPA (the federal agency for

agriculture, livestock, fishing and rural development) said the study is exam- ining the creation of a new yellowfin protection fishing zone off the state of Oaxaca, in which large fishing vessels are prohibited from taking yellowfin tuna. The new fisheries management plan (PMP) includes establishing catch quotas for smaller vessels. The new zone stretches about 145 nautical miles from Punta Galera to Morro Ayutla, and out to about 10 nau- tical miles offshore. The plan and study, which were announced July 16, stated that the Oaxaca region was chosen for the yel- lowfin tuna ban because it is so rich in

other fish species. Allowable quotas of yellowfin tuna catch will be based on current population studies. Part of the PMP’s action plan calls

for youth agencies to monitor the catches, determine the minimum catch size, and to study the reproductive cycles and growth of yellowfin tuna in that region. Oaxaca has several techni- cal colleges of fisheries and oceanogra- phy on its coast, part of the National Fisheries Institure or INAPESCA. Yellowfin tuna are important nation-

ally, according to Mexico Business Web, because it provides an important source of food, direct and indirect employment, trade and well-being at regional and national levels.
