Re: Bay Area meet up

Owe an update to y'all. Thanks to 'Camino' for reaching out. We are OK, house escaped the fires, but just the ongoing reshuffling of displaced people has been time consuming. Won't bore you with the details, but 30,000+ displaced people need to go somewhere. Everyone I know has been involved in that...

Re: Bay Area meet up

At this juncture, we must list ourselves as MAYBE. Another fire in Butte County, Paradise/Magalia area. Our humble abode is not directly effected, but this recent fire may give rise to PG&E making good on shutting power to outlying areas of Butte and other locales. I'd like to avoid returning to a r...

Re: Bay Area meet up

Thanks for doing the leg work. Am currently out of the Bay Area in the 'State of Jefferson' visiting daughter. Can send all info to listed email address Thursday. What can we bring? I have some moonshine that is 123 proof. It's sea blue in color. If no one cares to sip it, could use for BBQ lighter ...

Re: Bay Area meet up

C-

We are 30 amp. You mentioned insurance and other paperwork in a prior post. Can send to you or direct to powers that be. Just let me know where to direct.

Thanks so much for making the effort and if I can smooth the waters in anyway, give a holler.

Re: Bay Area meet up

We are in. Let me know what I need to do regarding slip rental. Electricity would be nice, boat best heated by electric, but not essential. Definitely want to hear the bold and retold tails of the SHTP and all else. Our sail plan would be to leave Coyote Point early Saturday morning, depart on Sunda...

Re: Bay Area meet up

We'd be interested. October is booked but proposed November weekend currently free in our calendar. Probably a slip advised for us. Our last anchoring experience left a lot to be desired. Ha!

Re: F 28 -Water tanks draining into bilge

Our F35-Pedrick sloop is similar as described in AlanK's post. Didn't know until we overfilled the tanks one day, the vent/overflow hose drains into bilge. Not sure if it has a high loop. We have two tanks, one under port settee and one under V-berth. Unsure if a post-production install. I will be f...
