San Joaquin Delta TF Meet Up

Anyone? When and Where? Al had a bunch of suggetions...

-Stockton Ports vs San jose Giants baseball game on June 2? we could get slips at the Stockton Marina?
-4th of July? (we plan to take the week off and anchor out somewhere...)
-Rio Vista? (I guess that is the SACRAMENTO delta )

I'll copy Al's post into this thread...

Al's post from the NYE thread:
We definitely need to arrange a summer delta anchor out. Mandeville for the 4th of July? Mildred Island in August? Village West Marina or Oxbow or Stockton Marina?* We probably should start a new tread on it when folks are ready to plan.

all depends on dates. I'll drive up since Mahalo, with a bit of luck, will be in Santa Barbara.

How is the rain treating you?

Thanks for reviving this idea, PG!!

I'm off for the Fourth of July week, the first full week of August and the first week of Sept. Other summer weekends are possibilities.

Mandeville 4th of July is the annual Delta Circus. There are also other good anchorages in the area where the fireworks can be observed from a short distance.

While it's fun to anchor out in one spot together, moving around to experience new delta locales can also be fun and allows us to operate our boats together. Alternating between anchorages and marinas can provide an opportunity for some to charge batteries and refill/empty tanks as needed.

I'm even game for rafting up for some time, but I just don't want to raft to the Coot. I'd never get those green and yellow rub-marks out of my hull!! ;-)

Tell me when and where and I'll be there!!

Why not "K dock" to the Farallones late summer/early fall (when the "wind gods" are favorable) and there is a flood tide in the morning (so to minimize waves over the shoaling in the Potato Patch as well as to give us a boost back home)? Could be done with most of us in three days (with overnights in Drake's Bay and Angel Island or Richardson Bay).

Light rain, sprinkles, with intermissions today at the Vallejo Marina. I was filtering/transferring fuel on the Coot today (at about 3-to-4 gallons an hour). Where were you, Ray? I was secretly wanting to accompany you on your boat to the fuel dock.



(Jennifer has been there done it, but I've only been out as far as the lightship, now long gone.)

Al, you've nothing to fear. I've got a minimum of five fenders on both port and starboard sides.

Like to eat at restaurants. Better than "camping."

But then rafting sounds "comfy" especially when someone has an ice maker (which I lack).

Can't wait for the fourth and Hilton's show at Manderville. If you haven't made it before, it is a must see. Between the boats, beauties and fireworks, it it well worth the trip. I have so much fun I stay two weeks. Last year ran into to Flywright out there, hope to meet more of you this week.With any luck I'l be out there by June 24th to get a spot along the shore line. The breeze can pick up pretty good and I have alot of sail area and I've been told my boat has a fat ass. All in good fun.

The Fallons sound interesting as well in the fall. I haven't had this boat outside the gate yet, it would be good to see how it handles.

I want to change a valve on the bottom of the starboard fuel tank before I take on more fuel. Better to do so on MY terms rather than Murphy's... Duke finished cleaning the tanks and filtering my fuel. No water in the fuel and my steel tanks are in good shape after 26 years!

Ray, it's hard to believe your boat is 26 years old. Amazing!

We would love to meet up with everyone. I like the downtown Stockton idea for a ball-game. Would meet anywhere though......

Pineapple Girl will be at the Stockton Marina June 2-3 and Matt and I will be attending the night game Sat night versus the San Jose Giants. If anyone else would care to join we would love to meet you!

We will be out there for the Fourth, not sure where! We won't head out until June 30 so I am sure the area around you will be filled in but we will at least come by in the dinghy and say hi a few times! Our boat has a big butt for sure!

We've got ice for everyone.

We plan to anchor out "somewhere" for memorial day weekend if anyone is interested, plus the ports game weekend in Stockton 6/2 and fourth of july week. Who's in for what?

I forgot another meet up opportunity, May 5th! This is the big Delta Loop Fest party on the delta loop road. We could have a land based rendezvous at one of the restaurants??
