BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) -- Only one boat on Southern California's Big Bear Lake has a liquor license, and it's underwater. The pirate ship tour boat sank under the weekend's barrage of rain, snow and high wind.

The 27-ton boat has been docked at Holloway Marina, where it was found in the drink Saturday. Owner and boat operator Loren Hafen says booty didn't take it down; weather did.

The 43-foot boat is used for summer tours and can be rented for birthdays, weddings and other parties.

Hafen say he hopes to refurbish it for the marina's 100th anniversary.
