Ahhhhhhh...I can almost smell that mix of salt air and new boat smell from here.

I'll be passing nearby at the mouth of the Napa around 12:30 Thursday on my way to Angel Island. I'll keep a keen eye out for a green and yellow sail-tug!

RE: June 16 in Carquinez Strait

It's nice to see that it's all happening for you just as you envisioned.* Keep the photos coming, you have an awesome boat.* Looking at the background in some of the photos brings back lot's of memory's of wonderful days spent on the water in the Bay Area.* It looks like the Mothball fleet in one, and it reminds me of the time I was sturgeon fishing there, when I heard what I thought was a low flying jet plane, and moments later Howard Arneson FLEW by in his twin turbine engine Skaker Cat, doing probably over 100mph.* At the time, he was in his 70's and loved blasting around the bay showing off, and spouting flames out the exhaust.* He once told me the flames were strictly for show, he injected fuel directly into the exhaust, and it was quite the sight (and sound).* Ah yes, fun days.* Enjoy the new toy, and keep posting photos............Arctic Traveller

*Just might be there.**Perhaps you'll get the chance to hear the sound of Coot's horns reverberating underneath the Carquinez bridges.* Awesome!*

*We passed by one boat fishing in the strait and they pulled up a sturgeon about five feet long.* Sturgeon fishing in the area has been extraordinarily good this year.* I've read that a lot of oversized fish have been caught and released (there are upper and lower size limits on sturgeon).
