Over two miles of oil-containment boom were laid in Tomales Bay this week after a fishing vessel ran aground near Dillon Beach. The boat has so far only leaked a small amount of oil, but removing the vessel, which can only be reached by air, will take time.    David Briggs

A derelict fishing boat is wrecked on the rocky shoreline north of Dillon Beach, and engineers are assessing the state of the vessel with the goal of preventing pollution. Their biggest concern is an oil spill: The boat can carry up to 29,000 gallons of fuel, and its hull is punctured.
