James “Hot Rod” Lane’s dream of building a boat and sailing to Hawaii is turning into a nightmare. Instead of being aboard his “Flyin’ Hawaiian” catamaran on his journey to a new life in the shadow of Diamond Head, Lane was cooling his heels Tuesday in the Marin County Jail.

The 52-year-old jack of all trades was arrested Monday after he got into a fight with Pat Lopez, harbor master of San Rafael’s Loch Lomond Marina, and bit Lopez’s right middle finder “almost to the bone,” according to San Rafael Police spokeswoman Margo Rohrbacher. The bloody scrap came during a heated argument over Lane’s continuing use of the marina’s facilities even though his 65-foot-long, twin-hulled boat left Loch Lomond in June.

Since then, the eight-ton beige behemoth, which Lane built in the Loch Lomond parking lot with his 28-year-old son, Michael, has been stuck in the mud off Spinnaker Point southwest of the yacht harbor. Read on. Thanks to Marin News.
