At Lakeville on the Petaluma River, there is a Greek Restaurant. One of these days I've got to dine there. (Navigation gets trickier upriver from here.)

I've wondered where that white work boat to the right of the Coot (in post #41)in that photo was tied up at. If I'm not mistaken it has been for sale for quite some time now. Ex commercial steel boat that can not return to commercial work for some legal/technical reason. Has a pretty large diesel engine and some very heavy duty generators and hydraulic pumps and hoisting equipment.

Believe that is southwest and on the opposite side of the river of Shollenberg Park, adjacent to Landing Way and immediately downriver of some bulk-material industries, and perhaps a half mile downriver of Highway 101.

There was only one slip available that would accommodate Tropical Blend - it's B-13. It's pretty far inside, and very close to the parking lot and restrooms. Of all the marinas we visited, we thought that the Grand Marina was the most organized, and we really liked the Harbormaster. Now, if we could just get the weather to cooperate... gale warnings tomorrow around Pt. Conception, winds at 35kts, seas to 18 feet - yowza! We'd like to try to leave next Thursday, but right now, the window is looking good early in the week.

More than four or five more boats and the law would require us to stern tie (Petaluma Turning Basin)! We left before that happened due to good planning.



Subsequently, a large SeaRay stern-tied directly behind the Coot in anticipation of the planned Memorial Day event where more than 60 boats were expected.

Craig pulled in behind us in his Owens. Except it wasn't actually Craig, it was some other Craig! Good thing b'c this guy dropped his anchor right on our stern anchor rode. LOL. We couldn't believe Craig would do that. But he did. But it wasn't Craig.

LOL. You discovered a porthole to the parallel universe.

Looking at that picture makes me wish I had bought a woody rather than fiberglass. Upkeep is a bit spendy but nothing beats the look.

Besides Al will tell you not to worry about me dropping the anchor when someone else already has.
