I have just moved to the bay area about a year ago from Michigan. Bought a boat from my Dad and brought it out from Michigan and rehabbed the whole boat all summer. We have only taken it out a few times and heard people go out in December even. I noticed that you post threads every once in a while and thought you would be the best person to ask about this poker runs and boating excursions. I had to use you as a reference for signing up, hope you don't mind. Send me a message when you get a chance, I am very interested in joining what groups might be available.
