A Foggy Thanksgiving Weekend on the CA Delta

This morning I saw the last part of Sam Peckinpah's 1975 film The Killer Elite starring James Caan and Robert Duvall.**It's an awful*movie.

Anyway, the ending scenes take place on a staysail ketch and the reserve/mothball fleet in Suisun Bay.* There are various "sailing" scenes, views of bay bridges, as well as the fleet.* That part was worth watching.* It's obvious the mothball fleet has since*been rotated/recycled.

RE: A Foggy Thanksgiving Weekend on the CA Delta

PG, The fog moves in and out throughout the winter on the delta, depending on cloud cover, temp, winds and rain.

Yesterday we arrived at the boat at noon with no fog. We enjoyed the Delta Loop Lighted Boat Parade from our boat tied up at the Moore's Riverboat Restaurant dock. We enjoyed another great dinner at the restaurant ($17 excellent Prime Rib dinner!!), then to an impromptu marina party with the Shed A party crowd!

After a cold clear night, this morning I woke up to a thick fog. (...the weather, not my head...) Then we walked back across the parking lot to Moore's Riverboat for breakfast of Prime Rib and eggs & Lobster Omelet!! Gotta love that delta food!!

By the time we started our drive home at 11AM, the fog had burned off.

*Why not???

But I post lots and lots of pictures.* And not just of my boat.

Just sayin', not criticizing!

We should have a rendezvous in the delta next year; Moore's Riverboat?* We have a lot of members in the general vicinity.* We hope to have the boat up there April -August.

RE: A Foggy Thanksgiving Weekend on the CA Delta

I'm planning to come out your way from Oct 3-14, 2012 for Fleet Week and the following week. Will probably berth at Brickyard Cove in Richmond where our friends have their boat. We should rendezvous there, too! How about it, Coot? Ray? Mark and Cindy? Jlamb15? Anyone in the Bay/Delta area? (Maybe this should be its own separate thread...)

Yeah!

Read mixed reviews of Moore's, but I'm game.

So Al, how many boats will be able to raft at your Pt. Richmond friend's dock?

Around here those are called "poule d' eau", pronounced pool doo.
