So are these long lines for free launch sites?
Or are they the ones you pay to launch?

Lots of people are leaving their boats and truck overnight at Windsor and getting an Uber home as a way to avoid the lines in the morning, I think that’s a dick move, but the Rangers seem to allow it.
read somewhere you pay overnight fee ($5) and next day daily pass when you do this.
if staying at a hotel I would consider this.

day like these make me put up with the Nautical timeshare BS or cherish my islander summer spot

might be a reason I am in Carlsbad.
Based on my last two trips, Fathers Day is going to be a CF as well. Might be a Friday boat, pool Saturday and boat Sunday trip.
I think that's going to be our new "norm." We are going the weekend before Father's Day and will be doing that exact thing.

This year is the first time in 6 years that we are not going to Fathers Day weekend.

It’s crazy, I bought a 28’ boat last year thinking, the bigger the better to handle the chop. Now seeing 40’ fountains, and all the center consoles, I think I should have gone bigger haha.

Everyone have a blast and be safe.

Limiting windsor ramp is maybe the most retarded thing I’ve heard recently.

A - people are still gonna launch just go somewhere else to do it
B - it fucks traffic up all over the city
C - what’s it accomplishing exactly?! Fuckin stupid ass politicians!

Makes zero sense.

Not a city thing but a State Parks deal.

How about the channel? Saw @Wendi on FB live and there were EZ ups everywhere with large groups and people on top of each other. How is that any different than boats being in there??? Social distancing was definitely happening.....

These people "running" things are idiots for sure.

Typical Havasu. Always some stupid shit going on out there. Sometimes we think about selling out and buying a place on the water up river.

It's not rocket science just self serving politicians. Any blind person can see that a 10x10 tent side by side with another, lined the channel, each having 10 people in the tent and another 10 in front in the water versus boats tied with 3-4 foot separation and possibly 8-10 people. Math doesn't add up but local votes at election do. My .02 for the day.

That last pic is both awesome and frightening! That's a whole lot of floating people. Part of me wanted to stay out this weekend...big weekends always meant the "Big Boys" roll in. Big twin I/O's, wackers and up river blown flatty's. Laying low this weekend. Figured the previous weekends have been a shit show, so a holiday will just be insane.

Thank you all for the pics. Hopefully more coming.

Badass. Glad to see people living the American way having a good time and exercising their freedom. It would be sweet if all the boaters did full throttle rev up at the same time.

Like nothing i have ever seen here before. Grid lock. Cops shut the channel. Then reopened.
Complete shit show. But everyone behaved
I dunno how many boats in the bay, few thousand maybe
I was on shore right where they shut it down. IMO they shut it down for good reason, some one was going to get hurt. Many, many, many boats with people on the deck making sure no boat bumped another, so something had to be done. It look's like no one was hurt and that from what 6 of us saw is a miracle. The police had NO other option in my eyes.

The entrance was a cluster f for sure. I wish people woulda gone in single file.

That said I have to say I was really impressed with a lot of people’s driving skills today.. It restored my faith in boaters!

there’s always a couple, and unfortunately they kinda made a mess of things right in front o. Us.
Mike Dufrese did a good job dealing with spooled up right in front of us..

even though it was a shit show, everyone was very polite and helping each other. First class from our group that was heading in.

I'm sure a prudent move by leo so each got through safe.
