Officers and witnesses were able to pull Kluball ashore but he was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police. Two other people who were on the boat survived.
Police did not release any other details about what happened with the boat or how Kluball ended up in the water.
The death is under investigation by Pacifica police and the county coroner’s office.
