Hey everyone! My name is Rob and I moved out here to CA from Minneapolis with my girlfriend (now fiance) Donna about a year ago and we brought our Velocity 260 with us :)

So far we have boated on Don Pedro a few times but we really like the Delta a lot better. Since we don't know anyone and don't really know where to go we haven't really ventured out past ski beach and Windmill Cove. We live in Modesto so we always trailer up to Ladd's marina in Stockton and just kind of hang around that area (but it gets kinda boring). I don't even know where any other boat launches are besides Ladd's! (kind of pathetic I know!) To be honest the boating last year wasn't really that fun for us because it seems like everyone has wakeboard boats and that's not really our style of boating. But I think that's all about to change!!

I recently met Jeff Glow (owner of Smooth as Glass) when I went to get some fiberglass work done on my engine hatch and he told me about this website and the Delta Lunch Bunch. Then through him I met Drew over at Boatworks (he is installing some Dana trim tabs on my boat). I can already tell both of these guys are cool as hell and much closer to my personality type and my interests than what who I've met so far out on the water.

I bought my boat when I was living in Louisiana and owned it down there for about 7 years. Since then I moved to MI and boated there for a few years on Lake St. Clair, then Minnesota on Lake Minnetonka, and now here! I'm going to do my best to come out on March 19 and hopefully meet some more of the Delta Lunch Bunch.

I'm looking forward to boating with guys that have similar style boats as me. See you on the water!!

It doesn't look like I will make it out tomorrow because my boat is still in the middle of getting trim tabs installed. I should be good to go for the next event though! Everyone be safe out there and look forward to meeting you all next time!

Well driving through a rainstorm probably would not be the best way to be introduced to a navigational nightmare you will quickly learn and love.
