Ocean users to be banned from areas because of APEC


Swimmers, surfers and boaters will be banned from some parts of the ocean during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit next month, according to preliminary security plans released Thursday by the U.S. Coast Guard.

Tom Swenarton found out today that under the preliminary plans his boat will be locked in at F Dock at the Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor.

"That’s totally horrible," he said. "I need to take my boat out whenever I need to take it out. I’m a free person."

Swenarton uses his boat to catch fish that he sells, and says he might lose money because of the closure.
