The Oxnard Harbor District's Board of Commissioners voted unanimously Monday to pay half the cost of entering the Port of Hueneme's dimensions into an animated computer ship simulator to help ensure safer berthing of large and unusually shaped ships. The $12,000 fee to have the harbor's measurements fed into the computer, operated by a Florida-based maritime union, will allow ship pilots to gather information before entering the port and help them determine how best to navigate the channel.

As recently as three decades ago, if you owned a sailboat in Ventura County you needed an extra piece of equipment: a trailer. Despite miles of shoreline, there was virtually no permanent mooring. "You could anchor near Ventura Pier, but every time you wanted to get to your boat, you had to climb down a rope ladder and take a row boat," said Don Mills, a civil engineer who is the historian of the Ventura Yacht Club. And, he adds, there was room for only about 20 sailboats.
