Petaluma Turning Basin

Just in case you thought Petaluma Turning Basin was too shallow or too small, I attach a photo of our 70 footer there this month. An easy ride in past the D Street Bridge at high tide then tie up on the public dock. Only 4.5 foot of water at low tide but is deep mud so as long as you don't mind a little keel dipping, all was well. We are 5.5 feet but really had no problems. I know the army corp will dredge there one day but meanwhile is just fine as long as you time the tide. A great boaters destination in the Bay Area.

I agree, lelievre12. A few of us guys had a nice time there last year. I don't remember much about the trip...



We're looking forward to returning soon. Thanks for digging a trough for us to follow.

Here's a site with soundings from the US Army Corps of Engineers

Al,

You have my total respect. A guy who knows how to party and in another life is a professional pilot is a guy to admire.

Wow You guy's party too hard for me. Don't get too close to the day markers on the south side of the entrance channel back into the bay. Don't ask me how I know.
