    Question Friday dinner run, who's in?

    Rob (Lake PAL) and I are planning to run the Shortbus up to either Wimpy's or Giusiti's tomorrow for an "early" dinner (back to south delta by dark). Any others want to boat along with us? I'll buy the first round.

    Also, any opinions as to food fare at both joints?

    Be very careful just above Walnut Grove Marina at the 5 mph buoy is a log/tree sticking out of the water just a little bit. It is on the marina side just above the buoy and +/- 60' toward the marina side. Hope this helps

    Deltarat, we'll get gas at Bull Frog and can meet at Old River bridge... like 3ish? Would probably want to leave Walnut Grove around 5ish to head back. I don't have the white light and no time to pick up a stick-on. Will PM you my cell. Text me your plans.

    Paul... we'll give you a holler when close... maybe 4ish and probably Wimpy's.

    Default Great day, hope to get a few more like it

    We had a great cruise last Friday. The water was perfect and Shortbus' Stoker loves the twists & turns run to/from Wimpys! We had some decent grub with PTC and a beer or two. Good to see you Paul. As you can see in the these pics the water was miserable. Sorry DeltaRat could not make it. Hope everything is ok Terry

    Oceangoer, before you say it, NO the blue boat behind the cavalier is not faster than my deckboat! Almost, but not quite.
