South South West West can only mean So Cal Diego. Will be getting the boat on the water here in the next few weeks and was wondering if there were any others that might be interested in meeting up for a boat gawking meet and greet? Maybe cruise Humphrey's on the Bay and take in a evening of free concerts on the water? Pretty good schedule coming up...
Is there anything planned on Mission Bay or San Diego Harbor? It's mid July and the weather is nice.
We live in the San Fernando Valley of L A, it's a bit of a drive so we prefer a 2 or 3 day get together. Also need a bit of warning.
If someone would like to come up here, we can buddy boat to Catalina, the Isthmus or Avalon, for a couple of days.
I'm in SE LA County. I will be boating out of Long Beach, mainly, but would like to hit as many So.Cal. lakes as I can over the next couple of years.
I just bought my Glass Magic Ranger. It will need some love, but the engine runs great. I'll be receiving it back from the boatyard maybe next week (water impeller, lower end oil), but won't have time to splash her until about a week after that.
Should give us plenty of time to plan something, right?
Hi, what kind of boating are you interested in? Day trips or over_nighters? Most places involve a fairly long drive thru heavy traffic so we prefer at least a 2 day trip. But then we live aboard on the water & when traveling long distances to get there.
The Calif lakes are all part of the drinking water so you cannot over night, also your boat and motor must be clean & dry to pass the Quagga mussel inspection.
We're interested in meeting up anywhere along the coast from San Diego North including buddy boating to Catalina, the Colorado River from Lake Powell South, Puget Sound (Washington State), the Sacramento River Delta, etc.
I am at parker Arizona this weekend and although hot, it's great fun. Havasu is probably nice also. Mission Bay or SD Bay is always fun or maybe some lakes in San berdandino co., big Bear is always pretty.
Maybe we could do this in sept when it's more mild weather?...and I get my lower unit repaired.
I got everything done that's gonna be done, so I'm probably splashing at Marine Stadium in Long Beach on Sunday. Gonna do some testing with the boat.
One thing I'm really interested in learning about is what waterways are available to me for boating with my two-stroke engine. I bought the mussel sticker when I registered her, but do I need anything else?
I'm interested in all the CA lakes plus the Colorado river and those lakes (Mead, Mojave, Havasu). Is there a central location on the web where I can find all pertinent restrictions?
There is no state wide restocking on two strokes, thankfully. They are only banned in a handful of lakes that are used for drinking water.
You can find the info and the lakes they are off limits here
Yes the mussel sticker is required, they just ask what water it was in last when you launch and quickly inspect the boat.
I think I will try to get up on the Colorado River again between Parker and Laughlin soon. Maybe Lake Havasu. Probably in late September.
I've always wanted to cruise that exact stretch of river. How long do you suppose it would take? Maybe start on Havasu and cruise upsteam to have lunch. There's a ramp and a dive bar in the middle of Bullhead maybe 5-10 miles south of the dam. Burger and a beer and then sorta float back down the river?
Do they keep enough water in the river to boat anymore? I haven't been to Laughlin for ten years or so.
