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
@renodaytona
Outside parking is $10/day there. They have cabins to rent right there and relatively cheap premium gas on the dock.

Thanks for the info.

Got hooked up with 5 Star marina in Stockton if I decide to leave the boat for a few weeks.

I read on Facebook that someone was up on the bridge pointing a rifle at boaters?

@lake p.a.l. @707dog @RogerThat99 @Bullet28 @HighVoltage329

You guys hear anything locally about a bridge shooter as mentioned by RD?

Is it Friday yet? @Tahoe540 and I will be pulling into windmill cove around 5pm Thursday, does anyone know if their café and bar is open during the week with the COVID shiz going on?
I did. It was in Sacramento, not really the Delta. I haven't heard of any shots where actually fired, some just said a person on a bridge pointed a rifle at them. Could have been a rifle, a pellet gun, an airsoft, or a paintball gun.

^^^what he said. LOTS of bridges on the delta???
It was the Tower Bridge in Old Sac.

Here is the text of the post:

"Shooter on Tower Bridge, Sacramento! We just drove under the bridge south bound and looked up to see a Male on North East side of the bridge who pointed a rifle right at us. We hit the throttle out of there and called 911. Sorry for the typos and edits, I'm a bit Shakey and unnerved from the incident."

I didn’t hear anything about a shooter on a bridge, I was out all day Saturday on a V Drive run. Windmill should be open, I’m sure we will end up there on Friday also. I’ll meet you in front of Windmill at 8:00.

So it sounds like we are going to change our plan up a bit. We are going to rent a cabin at B&W instead of dragging @Tahoe540 's toy hauler over to windmill cove for the weekend. Waiting on reservation confirmation right now.

Anyone ever stayed at the cabins at B&W?

I think it opens around noon. We were there about 3 weeks ago - only allowed in the bar to pick up ur beer then had to go outside (we were the only ones there at lunch time). Food was "meh" at best. Place was filthy and the few workers that were there looked like their favorite pet had just been shot. I think grusom has really put some of these places on the brink of no return. It is criminal. On a positive note, Tiki Lagoon (great bartender) was amazing and packed and Orwood was incredible - can't say enough great things about Cindy and the tight ship she runs there. Moore's Riverboat was a dive - tried to go in - it looked abandoned. Same as Spindrift - filthy and not a soul in sight. One of these years we will join u guys. Have a great run!

Have always wanted to do the Delta. I guess I drove over some part of it, on the way up to Oregon a few times??

Looked awful impressive to me!

Confirmed 1st stop is Windmill. Food is not great as mentioned previously. Most have beverages on their boats & have the ability to walk to those boats as needed. Be safe everyone. If you see my slow white refrigerator looking boat stop & say hi.

I'm trying to leave work a little earlier than originally planned tomorrow🤞, we will see what happens. If so I think we will be pulling into Windmill around 3:00pm tomorrow afternoon maybe a little earlier.

@Bullet28 see you at 8am in front of windmill Friday. Here is a pic of my Daytona if you can't make out the pic in my avatar.

Beautiful 25, what are specs on motor & drive? Whats your happy cruise speed? You will have plenty of boats to follow & not be left behind. Safe travels down the hill. You may want to go toward Whiskey Slough then make a right to miss a narrow tunnel to get to Windmill. The road used to be bumpy as hell getting back there. Maybe Rogerthat or someone that drives cars to Windmill will help out.

Thanks @lake p.a.l. Motor just finished in June this year by @Tahoe540 and myself. It's a 572 big block, Bryant Racing crank, Oliver Rods, Icon pistons, Brodix Big Brodie heads, T&D shaft rockers, all Teague valve train components, Mooneyham 14-71 blower, Superchiller, dual 1050 dominators. Just have a Bravo 1 outdrive for now. I'm easy on her out of the hole and all around for the most part, she cruises at 70ish around 3000-3300rpm. New interior, and outdrive are on the list for winter upgrades/projects.

We will take I5 to highway 4 into windmill, yeah the road into windmill sucks, just have to go slow. I went with @RogerThat99 for big cat a couple times and stayed there.

Sounds like a nice setup. There will be plenty of outboards running WFO trying to get the big block guys to play, fyi.

This was my question. Still not 100% but I am thinking that I will launch at B&W. It would be great to run over with the group as I have no experience in the bottom half of the delta. I am fairly decent on the part near me but have not explored south much beyond Twitchell. How fast are the slow boats on this run? The Cobalt is built for comfort not speed.

Any kids on this run?

B and w works great for peeps coming from north and Napa/vallaho(spel) and Sacramento,you avoid bridge toll and 30+ more miles towing

How’s the smoke situation down there? It’s horrible in Reno now, just started again today. Can’t even see the hills behind my house. I hope to get a reprieve from that this weekend.
