@Tahoe540 and I are heading to the Delta the first weekend of Oct. Plan as of now is I'm taking my Daytona and he is bringing his toy hauler and we are camping at windmill cove. Hoping to meet up with @RogerThat99 for some liver damage drinking after the boat is put away of course. Looking to run to Orwood Friday am to meet up with some peeps from the DLB. Who from here is going and where are you staying/launching?

There's a few of us coming down from Oregon that will be running around with the rest of the hoodlums on Friday the 2nd, then staying the weekend in hopes of laying down some miles Saturday and Sunday. If my balls drop again, the wind/tides cooperate, and my tour guide is up to it, I am hopeful for a Bay trip one of those days. If that doesn't work, oh well, we'll burn some fuel in the back waters. I am leaving my boat at B&W for the winter in hopes of making it down 1 or 2 times a month to put some winter miles on.

I plan to be there. I live about 30 minutes south of Orwood so I will just drive up in the morning. Is the "leave Orwood" time posted? I'm assuming it's around 10:00am.

We will be there on Oct 2 for Hookie Day. Plenty of miles to run on Sat & Sun also if anyone is interested. SF Bay, Petaluma, Napa or just up to Sacramento are all great destinations depending on wind but it usually lays down in October.
Hit up Nenas in Stockton for great Mexican food & secure docks, just get code from staff b4 returning to your boat.

How’s the ride over on the water from Windmill to Orwood?

Can’t wait to run around with you all, I’m super stoked for this trip.

I knew this day would come. I’m actually surprised not sooner.
I’ve been boatless a year and a half now.
I know I’ll have no problem getting a ride but this is the prime example of why I liked having my own boat.
I might have to inquire with a couple peeps that had boats but for whatever reason ended up in mine. 😃

You can get there 37 different ways, well maybe not that many. A cell phone map can get you anywhere you need and you can't pick a bad route. You will travel by Discovery Bay and the community on the water is something to see. There are plenty of places to stop for fuel through the delta. Its a great place to tick away some miles on the boat.

this would be a cool time to do it , there is always a boat to follow as the group is diverse with floats.

We have talked about getting together some time, there is room in my boat. I just need to make an arrangement or two and confirm I am a go.

I think the biggest Hookie Day I remember was around 65 boats. That year we had everything from the smaller Rayson Caft v-drive to a 44 Skater, and everything in between. I don't think I have ever seen less than 40 boats. Plenty of big boats, small boats, fast boats, and slow boats. There is always a group to follow.

I still don’t have my new boat but I will probably still make it.

I am not bringing the Toon to this one cuz it sucks on the Delta. lol My buddy is probably going with his boat. I would rather roll on his boat.

So I am a definite maybe. ;):cool:

Let us know if you wanna make the run. I can take my Toon if necessary and give yore entourage a ride if you need one. It’s just sitting at my house 45 minutes away.

Its slow (40 mph) and the wrong boat to see the Delta but it’s got a big cooler ;)

The delta is more fun if the boat can go at least 65 mph (or more)

for what??

I have always wanted to run the delta.. it’s my b day??

What's the usual time that they leave Orwood? My current plan is to be in the water by 9:00am.

I hope you make it, looking forward to meeting you and all of the other DLB crew that I haven't met yet.

Anyone have recommendations for short term storage down there? Looking to maybe leave my boat down for Oct. and hit the Trump parade on the 17th and the Halloween parade on the 24th.

Short term indoor storage will be tuff to find. Delta boat storage @ B&W Resort would probably have outdoor short term storage but they don't have any covered outdoor. Good luck

I will talk to the owner where I keep my boat at 5 Star Marina, our ramp comes into the warehouse and backed in with a forklift. Shouldn’t be a problem. PM me you’re number.
