For 15 years, Bob DeLoyd has lived aboard his boat, a breakwater away from the open sea but so close to nature that he knows the gulls by name. People said his lifestyle was too good to be true. This week they were proven right. On Tuesday, DeLoyd and six other live-aboard boaters who moor at the far edge of Redondo Beach's King Harbor were told they will have to move. The eviction notice, served by the City Council, was part of the fallout from the violent storms of 1988.

In a lawsuit, the city alleged that the drilling caused several areas in the harbor to sink and caused millions of dollars in damage after a storm in 1988. City Atty. Jerry Goddard said the eight oil companies named in the lawsuit were required to replace the oil they had taken with pressurized water.
