The Ayala Cove regulation is a maximum of two boats in a "raft" so as to have a maximum of four boats pulling on any one mooring buoy. Recall seeing three sailboats in a raft when we were there. One is supposed to have the bow facing toward Raccoon Strait, but a large minority of the boats were facing the wrong direction. Noted no evidence of policing by state-park rangers regarding mooring regulations or fee payments the 42 hours we were there.

I suppose the enforcement is hit or miss, depending upon staffing. Twice I have been approached by rangers in an inflatable checking for evidence of payment. They have always been cordial and professional.

If they did their homework examining actual payments, the rangers needn't necessarily interact with boaters at all regarding payment since they can observe boat name or registration number from the hull. Having/showing a self-prepared payment stub isn't evidence by itself of payment.

I've only ever seen the rangers out in a boat checking on a busy summer weekend. I have frequently seen boats in backwards, crossways or on only one ball (not bow and stern). I've also seen people arrive at dusk and leave early, thus avoiding paying. Kind of a shame as I think it raises the price for those of us who do pay. $30 is steep, at least around here, for an overnight mooring. Many places charge that for dock space w electricity. We were just at a marina last weekend for $20/night with electricity.

One of the state employees has a boat on the hard while he performs repairs. Perhaps I could convince them to allow me to run a power cord to shore...???

Lol is love to see all the cords strung together. How do you keep then out of the water Ray?

Suspend the cords from the masts, of course.

Ray, did you check out the Coot's radar reflection as you had planned?

Yep. I could see you easily. I think we were about three miles from each other at the greatest distance in San Pablo Bay. Why are you up at 03:00?

Fell asleep at 8:00 p.m. and woke up after seven hours sleep. Got little sleep the night before because Perla stayed up all night packing two large boxes containing 104 pounds of gifts and food and making last-minute shopping trips. I was concerned she would miss the 8:30 a.m. shuttle to the airport to catch her flight to the Philippines. She finished packing with only two minutes to spare.
