There is nothing placid about San Francisco Bay. Its raucous waters have hosted brutal storms, daring rescues, horrendous accidents, and countless hours of drama and tension. Captain Paul Lobo knows that better than most people. As a licensed harbor pilot in those treacherous waters, Lobo captained nearly 6,500 boats in a thirty-one year career—everything from mega-yachts to the USS Enterprise to the Love Boat. Each trip tells its own story, and Lobo shares many. Here readers will find gripping, tense adventure stories, all well told. Reading Crossing the Bar is like being on the rolling bridge with Lobo. Here are tragic deaths and lives saved, inspiring rescues, devastating storms, and the infamous and horrendous oil spill after the Cosco Busan rammed the Oakland Bay Bridge—which resulted in the first imprisonment of a maritime pilot for making an error. Readers will also find a December sea rescue Lobo assisted with in hurricane strength winds and monstrous seas. Without Lobo’s pilot boat and its crews’ supreme effort, the ship they saved would have foundered on the rocky Marin County, California, coastline with the loss of all hands.

In 1838 a sixteen-year-old-boy named Hans Buhne sailed from his home in Flensburg, Denmark and began his first adventure as a cabin boy on a whaling ship. He survived a shipwreck in 1845, and went on to whale in many oceans before arriving in San Francisco just after gold was discovered in 1849. He decided to try his luck in the mines, but illness soon forced him back to San Francisco. Desperate for funds, he accepted a post as second mate on the Laura Virginia, a ship hired to discover a rumored but hidden bay on the wild and inhospitable northern California Coast. Dozens of other ships were also setting out to find this hidden bay, which would provide safe anchor for ships and thus supply route to the inland mines. Buhne had chanced onto the winning ship: the Laura Virginia was the first to find the bay, and Buhne himself made history when he successfully piloted the first boat of white settlers across the bar into what was soon named Humboldt Bay. He decided that this bay, surrounded by endless redwood forests, would be his home, and he developed several enterprises to secure a living: he became a canvas hotelier, ran a mule train, and piloted ships across the bar. He received an arrow in his lung, almost drowned when he tried to lead the rescue of a damaged schooner, and soon became a local legend as an expert bar pilot on Humboldt Bay. Slowly his fortunes rose. When Buhne died in 1894 he was one of the wealthiest men in northern California.
