Go Treasure Hunting at Harbor Nautical Swap Meet

Wade through tackle, trinkets and other things on Saturday at the waterfront

The city of Santa Barbara Waterfront Department, in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Harbor Merchants Association, invites the public to the fourth annual Santa Barbara Harbor Nautical Swap Meet from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 15.

This year’s swap meet will bring hundreds of treasure-seekers down to the waterside. Dozens of vendors will be packed into one location in the Main Harbor parking lot near Marina 3.

This swap meet has become “the place” to search for all kinds of seafaring booty including tackle and gear, surfboards, fishing poles, inflatable boats, boat rigging, boat motors and other marine/nautical items.

So, gather up the family and come spend an adventurous morning of fun. Free refreshments will be provided by the merchants association.

For more information, call 805.564.5531 or visit the Waterfront Business Office at 132-A Harbor Way in Santa Barbara (above West Marine).

— Brian Slagle is an administrative analyst for the city of Santa Barbara Waterfront Department.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
