RE: Google Earth

At real low tides -4 feet we are sitting on the bottom.* As you go further north the tide swings get larger and many time boats are left high and dry.* That is why I am planning on the Eagle going a ground as the changes are high we will.* I Google the Everett marina which shows our boat and I think my daughter sun bathing on the roof of our boat.*


*
Just last Sunday when to a birthday party and started up a conversation with a couple that live in a house that over looks the marina.* We got to talk and they ask which is out boat and we told them.* Then he said I was wondering who owned that boat with the lady sun bathing on the room.* Needless to day we will have to watch how we sun bath in the future as the people up on the hill are watching.*

Again, sad to say, it's a lake. It doubles as a reservoir for the city downstream and*gets emptied*every fall in preparation for the winter rains and spring run off. By April it will be full again.

You'll have to show us another shot when the tide is in - looks like a nice spot. (Yes, I know that it's actually a lake.)

RE: Google Earth

The reference to Google Earth reminded me a the time our son called home while on spring break in college; no not that phone call. He was telling me where they were, somewhere on the west coast of FL. I pulled up a sat pic from Google Earth and following his description located what I guessed to be the house they were renting. I asked about the roof color, which was distinctive, and upon confirmation, he hollared to one of his buddies in the ouse,"hey my dad can see the house on Google." I guess there might have been a little alcohol consumed, it was spring break, I could hear the guy in the background say," tell your dad to keep watching, I'll go out and wave." I cant print what my sone said to his frat brother.
For the record, he went to Auburn, WAR EAGLE!

RE: Google Earth

When you are moored on the salt you time many activities with the tide as the ramp gets very steep. Of course I do not run the gen at low tides, and as a protection have sea strainers.* The bottom is sand/mud so it soft. After starting the engines the first thing I do is go to the stern and see if raw water so coming out.****

Much better - everyone, including the boats, looks much happier in these shots. So is there just a small area that gets drained or the whole huge lake? And if just the small area, how do they segregate it?Interesting stuff.
