Nov. 20, 2014- The Ocean Beach Historical Society Presented “THE BOAT PEOPLE” Former FREE-ANCHORAGE Live-Aboards! Featuring (who we feel should be doing Stand-Up) Gillian Lancaster & Friends: After hearing about the Duckman, Zeke and BooBoo, and learning the names of some of the boats, such as the “Love Shack”, “Rapture”, “Gillian’s Box”, you quickly realize why many of these people ended up living or hanging out in Ocean Beach. On Nov. 20th were introduced to many of these free-spirited individuals, like our speaker Gillian, who love the sun and water and being in a place with a relaxed lifestyle. We learned the history of the FREE-ANCHORAGE (off Shelter Island), live-aboards and their challenges… and better yet we enjoyed a night of humorous tales with lots of giggles and laughter as these mates were reunited!
