Glad to see that everybody is having a summer Boating-Blast! Due to obligations... it currently appears the dates we can come out to boat-play on the Delta are July 5th - 9th. Will be in Stockton area, on the hook or often visiting the mariners and restaurants! Garlic Brothers is a favorite at Village West Marina. Will also visit Tower Park, Windmill Cove and the like!

Happy 4th O' July!!

Art & Linda

We are at Three River Reach now through Wednesday or Thursday and we plan to head up to Village West towards the end of the week to fuel up. Maybe we will see you at Garlic Brothers?

Arrrghh! I'm sure it's more frustrating for you than any of us. You and Perla will be missed!

There's always the America's Cup!!

Mark, the joys of the Delta are always waiting for our exploration. When your part arrives and you're ready to go we'll all head up river and join Al and company. The end of July sounds about right!

Mark--- Can they not air ship the shaft to you? Since this is a warranty item and the boat is disabled until it arrives it would seem that the manufacturer has an obligation to get the part to you asap.

Marin, it is being shipped via EMS Worldwide Express Mail Service. Unfortunately, their tracking site doesn't give an estimated delivery date, unlike some other carriers.

Enjoy!

We'll probably watch the Vallejo fireworks tomorrow from the marina-stuck Coot.

Mark, Vickie and I will be waiting for you I had to shut down my starboard engine for cooling hose failure near New York Slough, dropped anchor and got on the phone with the Cat folks. Couldn't find a local replacement so limped back in to Vallejo on one engine. I won't be able to find the correct hose until Thursday and need to go back to work next week. We'll be ready for the next excursion into the Delta toward the end of the month. You and Perla can follow us so you can help Mahalo Moi with the next calamity....

What a bummer.

We're bringing raw vegetables with blue-cheese dip, shrimp cocktail, cheese and salami, and cold cucumber-avocado soup for dinner on the Fourth. Will bring enough to share if that fits your plans. We intend to come to the Coot before six in the evening. Let us know.

We have a cheese platter, fresh fruit, chips, crackers, onion dip, beer, bourbon, rum, etc. I also spent about 12 hours brining and smoking (alder) three pounds of salmon. It's to die for. See you around 6:00.

Great fireworks show last night compliments of the Hilton Family. Saw quite a few displays we've never seen before. One looked like a swarm of fireflies scattering in all directions and the other was a dense display of white bursts that filled the night sky with a 'cloud' of white sparks.

Mark and Ray, you were missed in the delta. Sorry the mechanicals got in the way, but sounds like you've got a great Plan B.

Pics below from the infamous Gauntlet and a shot of our quiet anchorage. We were a comfortable distance from the mayhem to enjoy a peaceful respite from the action, but close enough to dinghy over to visit old friends and make new ones. (The Breeze Booster is in place directing more air through the forward hatch.)

Just relaxing this morning in our favorite 'secret' cove with Pineapple Girl. We have company...a great couple from Oz/NZ visiting our favorite water hole. Looks like the secret is out!
