Horizon Dive boat San Benitos 20 years ago?

This Conception tragedy, reminds me of an incident aboard the Horizon dive boat, many years ago.


Some fellows on the Spearboard, were probably there, the time the Horizon ran aground near San Benitos, in the middle of the night. All the passengers were safely evacuated to a nearby island. There was a fishing village at the island, and Mark, the chef, brought us gourmet meals, where we were bound for a few days.

The Horizon was holed, and the crew patched the hull, the boat did NOT sink. Coast guard flew auxiliary pumps in. The Horizon was towed home, and the passengers all boarded a vessel to transport us back to San Diego.

What was the name of the vessel that transported us all back home?

My memory is challenged from too much Tequila over the years, but still old and in the way.
