  • Head count--- San Juans this weekend.

    Last call for the Island adventure 2010, I will sling launch at Skyline Marina which is closer than Cap Sante to Washington Park launch ramp. I will be in the water at 10am and then head over to Washington Park and pick up any boaters that launched there around 1030.

    I will bring a small inflatable raft to get to shore if we anchor out, it is big enough for 2 people. We'll try to get to a dock for the night.

    The min. amount of gear that will be needed is----anchoring gear, enough fuel for 75 miles on board, food and water for two days and a chart of the area. I will supply the stove and pot for heating water, coffee is not without mornings! Your boat should be able to do 20 knots in calm conditions and be able to handle 2 foot white caps anything beyond that we'll try to pick a differant route or wait it out.
    We should be back to the launch ramps by 3pm on Sunday.

    If Saturday looks real wet, lets just go on Sunday for a long day. So far the forecast calls for sun both days.

    Who is interested this year for the Island Adventure?

          Chuck beat me to my excuse.....Truck is acting weird,did a Distr, cap and rotor and will test but am leary of doing this far of a drive with a boat behind.
          Also need to gather basic needs for the stripped down Seafair.
          Will know more later today but am also teetering on the fence......

              Yeah Joe! In the shop or was. Seems GM in their wisdom makes it difficult to retrieve trouble codes. So i had a friend get them, so far just the Mass Air Flow Sensor ($100), and if that doesn't cure it, the codes lead to the 4, yes FOUR O2 sensors at $60 a piece. So Lowell, sorry I can't make it tomorrow. I have to work to pay off the tow rig expenses. And the last weather report I saw looked pretty good. [email protected]^n!
              Guess it gives me time to install the new VHF...

              Oh, and shop rates are 85 to 105 and hour. Cost 60 to get the codes my reader couldn't get to... I really love my Honda BF50

                Chuck,
                Sorry to hear that you still have troubles with the truck, at least you gave it a good try. I may still go, I need an Island break. Hope to see you soon. Lowell
