he doesn't have a toilet in there but more than once i have been in the water around ssix in the morning and you can smell human discharge out there in the water."the annoyance prompted somebody to tag 'move the boat' on its side.a lot of people wondered aloud why law enforcement can't just impound the boat like they would a car that was parked illegally."he's been here way too long and i don't know what the rule on that is, but he seems to be getting away with it.""my understanding is he has been arrested and has been issued citations. i believe they came from the united states park police."park police didn't return our phone calls to give details of those citations.we were also hoping to learn if and at what point towing the boat becomes a legal option. park rangers have spoken to the man on the boat...who has told them simply....that he doesn't want to leave.live in san francisco, spencer blake, kron four news.
