Me too. The weather is not so much an issue for the local guys. But for me it would have meant driving in the rain for hours from Woodland to SF, and then back again. And also from LA to Woodland today in the rain, and possibly half way back to LA in the rain on Monday.

I'm just not up to that kind of travel anymore.

OK. this is really nuttso but...

As of 04:30, my location, it is not raining and, as I stepped outside, we have "high fog" as cloud cover, and, get this, a dry, gusting, wind blowing from the south...

According to the weather predictions, worst chances of rain peak (around 90%) at 10:00 and 15:00.

NOAA's long range radar is showing the rain just grazing San Francisco to the north near The Gate at this point...

Who knows.

I'm looking at the Exploratorium roof top camera (thanks for the link woodybob) and it's pouring rain in the area.

BTW, you get on a que when you go to the cam and then you get a 60 second turn at actually controlling it and you can move it as you wish. That's awesome!

The Eighth bi-annual WOODEN BOATS ON PARADE 2010

Well, THAT was a sucker hole in the storm, that's for sure... WET!!! LOL


The eighth bi-annual
WOODEN BOATS ON PARADE 2010

Sunday, October 24, 2010 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
at Spreckels Lake

Unfortunately, North Sea conditions (relatively) on Spreckles Lake claimed two boats for Davy Jones when they foundered and took water... One a pocket battleship, rwood's version the Kreigsmarine Panzerschiff DKM Lützow (ex-Deutschland) and the other an innocent tug that tried to rescue her.

Otherwise everyone pretty much stayed snug as bugs in a warm rug, tucked away in the SFMYC Clubhouse. 58 boats were on display and the event was wildly successful from my point of view... to wit; lots of beautiful boats on display, lots of people crowded around into The Clubhouse "OOooing" and AAHHhhhing" over said very pretty boats, lots of new faces, a good lunch and happy talk all round. Who could ask for better... (Yeah yeah, getting in some run time as well, I know) but all in all a pretty darned nice event for everyone I talked to.

Anywayz! Gotz pictures, just have to edit so, as always, more to come!!!!

And, as always, need some help getting names to boats, matching owner/Captains to boats and getting peoples' names... so if you know any of the foregoing - PM ME!!!!

You would not have liked the drive one bit, Kmot- it was nasty!- (sipping a warm Brandy and still drying out as I type. )

I had me a blast and I won a ESC in the raffle...

Passed another milestone as well...

Sometime around 17:00 - 17:15 today, our thread passed 10,000 views. This makes this thread one of the most visited threads on the boating forums with about 125 visits per day.

We also did it in under 82 days!!!! No thread has come this far, this quickly, EVER!!!! Correction... Dug my calculator out and for average hits per day, apparently, only four other Dock Talk threads have as many or higher daily hit counts; the Springer Sticky, the two Hansen Dam threads and the ever popular Caption This thread. Whoops... Got carried away! Still pretty darned good!

Number 23 with a bullet on the Dock Talk Hit Parade!!!
