– Only one boat on Big Bear Lake has a liquor license, and it's underwater. The pirate ship tour boat sank under the weekend's barrage of rain, snow and high wind in Southern California.

The 27-ton boat has been docked at Holloway Marina, where it was found in the drink Saturday. Owner and boat operator Loren Hafen says booty didn't take it down; weather did.

The 43-foot boat is used for summer tours and can be rented for birthdays, weddings and other parties.

Hafen says the ship was winterized but he's going down Monday to see what damage was done. He hopes to refurbish it for the marina's 100th anniversary.

The one-third scale 16th century Spanish galleon replica was a prop in the movie "Time Bandits."
