Raft ups

Show us your "raft up" pictures....

The photos below are from January this year in Waitata Bay, Pelorus Sound.

As we are now moving into summer (sorry all you Northern Hemisphere boaties) this will be a regular occurrance over the next few months

-Mike

p.s. that crayfish was a beauty! The guys from Primetime dived for it near D'Urville Island that day!

We were all on bow anchors and every other boat had a stern anchor.

Some sailors understand that motor boats can carry more ice.

Let me see now . . . what is the probability that a '73 Gulfstar could make it from Florida to New Zealand? :-)

I like a smaller raft up especially in tricky weather and in this photo we had to lower antenna's and back down the channel to raft because of width and limited depth of creek off the TN river last month.

Al, I need you to show how this is done, setting the anchors, maneuvering among other boats. Perhaps the sticky mud of The Delta helps. I've only anchored solitaire.

Al, you've expressed disdain rafting in the rolly waters of Hospital (Ayala) Cove at Angel Island. Presumably waters are generally calmer in the Delta (definitely fewer ferries).

That looks like the boating equivalent to riding a cruise ship.

Yes, that was on Mildred Island, the flooded tract, with good wind breaks and no current. Here's how the Sea Ray Club does it there every year. According to last year's commodore, it takes advance planning and coordination re: beam and LOA, setting anchors and lines at GPS coordinates and good timing for arrival/departure. An advance team sets up lines the day before others arrive.

Actually, 1100 (Grand Princess). They have their own dining rooms, lounges, recreational facilities, etcetera, separate from the passengers.
