According to this Malibu Times article, the 37 foot boat washed ashore the morning of December 22nd between Big Dume and Little Dume beaches when the captain fell asleep at the helm. He had been sailing from Santa Barbara to Los Angeles. According to the article, the captain and his two cats were unharmed and the boat will be salvaged.

It appears the boat's name is Zeus, which is slightly ironic in that Zeus is a Greek god of mythology who has a brother named Poseidon, god of the sea.
