She's heard it all before.

Actually, if I'm not mistaken, this is during the Coot Tour and you were doing the talking!

(but I had that coming after posting that 'Running with Fenders' shot.)

Jankovich always does that. I prefer Mikes Main Channel or going around to Fish Harbor and that fuel dock. The problem with both of those is no finger dock they are piers only and you need a deck hand holding the boat off. I think the one in that harbor is United Petroleum if my memory serves me right and he's usually .05 cheaper than Jankovich. Also, they have a direct pipe line to the refinery. That's fresh diesel!

SF Bay/Delta Fuel

In mid November, I ran the boat up to Bodega Bay for crabbing and stopped by the local fuel doc near Jack London Square for a bit if fuel. It was $5.09 per gallon, so I didn't top up. Boat US shows that they give a discount to members, but they don't.

I will be bringing the boat back to Alameda near the end of December and want to top it up to avoid tank condensation during the cold damp winter. It will need 225 to 250 gallons, so a little side trip to Pittsburg could make sense. Anybody have the current prices on fuel in the area? BTW, the Chevron doc at Bodega Bay is currently $4.09 per gallon, which is a full buck a gallon less than Oakland.

You may want to go over to San Francisco I think the best price in the bay area was over by the Ferry terminal forget which location but there are only a couple to choose from, that was earlier this year.

Alameda has become pricey although easy convienent to many to stop and fuel up

Last month we pulled into Dog River Marina in Mobile Bay and topped off at $3.60 a gallon which was 4.25 a gallon in Orange Beach AL.

No wonder diesel gets called red gold compared to a few years ago.

Give Gashouse Cove Marina a call, 415-567-8880. They are near the St. Francis Yacht Club and Fort Mason. I've never fueled there but many folks say they are the cheapest in the Bay. I don't own the joint!

Called Gashouse Cove Marina and their price is $4.99 a gallon. Yikes! Not much better than Oakland. Looks like I will be topping up in Bodega Bay and save a couple hundred dollars! We will be doing some exploring in the delta and up the rivers next year, so we will be checking out those fuel stops.

Thanks for the feedback.

Diesel in the Delta is usually in the neighborhood of $4 a gallon, ($3.80 to $4.20, whatever). Prices include taxes.

Oh well! So much for Gashouse. Your plan to fill in Bodega Bay is good. You can top-off in Pittsburg on your way to the Delta the first of the year.

Let us know when you're going to the Delta. A number of us met in Pittsburg last January and had a good time.

My recommendation is to call around and check when you're ready to buy. The prices vary so greatly that today's discount place can be tomorrow's high price. Typical low price candidates I check regularly (within my range of feasibility) are Pittsburg, Antioch and Vallejo.

I look forward to meeting other bay/delta trawler folk. We are still fairly new to trawlers and the boating community. I will keep my eyes open for any postings of a get-together.

Remwines,

We have a little social group where we converse on plans for local trips. Here's the link. http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/g...+cruisers.html I sent you an invitation to join in the discussions. We enjoy periodic get togethers throughout the bay and delta areas.

Three of us, Giggitoni, markpierce and I, keep our boats in Vallejo, so we're close to the delta and the bay. I look forward to meeting up with you.

We Delta folk have installed security cameras at the Antioch bridge to warn us of their approach. Although our intel network has advised us that at least one has begun arming his boat for an attempt to penetrate our blockade at the bridge.

In October when I filled up ($1695) Antioch was the cheapest. The farther into the bay you got, the more expensive it was.

I have seen those cameras! I had to have the force-field dropped when I left!

It's best to sneak out of the Delta under the cover of darkness with your tail gunner on full alert.

As both Al and A-S-D found out earlier this year we have no problem letting folks out. Returning will make you long for the TSA lines at the airport on a holiday weekend.

Playing the banjo keeps us occupied until the assault
