*Don't know about the Bay area...but don't follow an assistance tower through unknown waters...I've missed my sweet spot in shortcuts by a few feet every now and then and have to back off very carefully.*

The SOB Ran My Damn Boat Aground!!

I have not run aground (underway) in my current boat--But I have anchored too close to a shallow spot and swung until the keel touched.

Being a Summer Day a quick dip in a good push and I was back in deeper water.* I moved out and anchored futher off the sand bar.

Thats what I like about small boats, you can push them around, If the wind and the current allow.

Notice the anchor rode in the attached image--boat is touching bottom and not riding on the anchor!

*The San Leandro Marina is likely to close down in a few years.* It hasn't found money for dredging the marina and the two-mile approach channel to handle the silting.

They actually dredged "recently", after all the hue and cry that there was no money and they were doomed.* We just had lunch there in December...
