Memorial Day docking???

Post by Mister Kay » Mon May 22, 2006 9:03 am

I can't remember a Memorial Day where the weather was suppose to be so nice, anyon ethink there is a chance they will fill up?? Just worried that we are coming with 3 boats but not until Sat at noon???

I know there hasn't been much of a problem the last 2 years, but we usually get there on Friday.


Thoughts on this???????????????

If it is anything like last year, we never even went four deep. I hope there is a better turn out, but I don't think you'll get shut out by any means.

I think we should go over to A (best party spot for us if we can get close to the fingers), but I will try to get a hold of someone over there ahead of time.

Although I am sure Zosia wants me over on C.

Kindy, are you going to C again. I will call you and you can tell me how it is.

It's not that big of a deal, I am not a big fan of B dock though.

Let's aim for the inside of A and go from there, unless Kindy is over on C with some open spots.

We're playing it by ear. I haven't been to A yet, So I may check it out, but we'll see.

Extremely looking forward to the trip, though!

I honestly don't think you'll have to worry about the docks being filled this weekend. Hopefully there will be a good turnout, but I would not expect the docks to be totally full. The price of gas is still pretty high (they don't fluctuate the way they do on land) so that will deter some people as well.....especially the people that only make a few trips a year.

Hey everyone. New to this Board. I didn't know it existed. Anyone ever dock at Fox's Dock? I have been going there the last couple of years but I do have friends who dock at the public docks. Antway, hope to tip a few this year with you on this board. By the way, anyone ever take advantage of the free internet service offered by I think C dock?

LAptop stays at home, too drunk to use it at the bay, and I haven't been there since I got it, I know of some friends that used it there and it worked find.

They used it to look up the weather to get home and that's about it.


I don't plan on gettting much work done there!! :D

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to use it for weather also and for checking email. First "overnight" to the bay should be June 9,10,11. Been on a few day trippers so far this year.
