Sailboat with pirate flag appears to remain stuck in Playa del Rey as it's tossed around by strong waves.

A 40-foot boat that was anchored offshore washed onto Dockweiler State Beach

, said Los Angeles County lifeguard spokesman Pono Barnes.

“We have a couple of vessels that anchor offshore of the Marina del Rey harbor. Sometimes, those anchors aren’t put in well… the anchors didn’t hold and it ended up on the beach,” he said.

The boat, which appeared to be unmanned while getting tossed around in the surf, was flying a pirate flag according to live video.

Barnes said workers were hauling it up further on the sand. The boat owner is responsible for hiring a company to get it off the beach.

“The vessel is too big and the surf is too big to haul it out” to the sea, he said, noting it could have damage to the underside.

He said no one was aboard when the boat washed ashore in 5-to-7-foot surf.

Waves upwards of 10 to 12 feet were hitting some areas as the swell moved into the region, prompting the National Weather Service to issue a high surf advisory in Orange County, Los Angeles County and San Diego.
