I'm there

If I get the DCB serviced, I'll be @ Orwood's @ 9AM !!!!!!!!!!!
If not, the day sure won't cost as much @ $4.50/gallon!:mad:

If you did a straight run to old town from Orwoods without stopping at bars along the way, how long would it take? I am thinking cruising at 50mph, only slowing for the no wake zones and maybe checking the map a few times. Also, how many miles is it?

I think there are 2 ways of going..the deep water channel is a straight shot..I'm guessing maybe a little over an hour..or if you take the Sac river along 160 add another 30 minutes..

Watch out for the Old Man !!!!!!!!!

What a ride yesterday! Thx Greg for navigating us thru the windy assed main channel. Hwy 160 cutoff was a winner. Would have hated to be on the deep water channel all trip. Wonder if the Coast Guard ever found that drownding victim in Locke? Next time, I'll fill the tanks all the way, so we don't have to stop for gas in the Ozarks.

Coast Guard "You guys see an 84 year old man with a blue jacket and straw hat floating anywhere"?

WTF?? Yea, we saw him a 1/2 mile back..didn't have gas money so we left him.

50 mph time

I think it was a good 2 hours each way from Orwood's to Sacto on hwy 160 river. Maybe shoerter on deep water channel, but it was choppy enough Thursday. We were going 60-70 mph and went thru maybe 2 rough water patches and 2-3 no wake zones (flew thru another!) It's a once a summer trip, usually stay towards Stockton for way more water. Also, nothing great about the water up there? Only 2 ways in and out, bet it gets crowded during the summer up there.

Boring AND a really rough ride

From what I saw, traveling the deep water channel is a rough ride. Looked like 2-3 foot swells, whitecaps, etc. Talk about a no fun ride!

Sacramento from DB doesn't take that long (hour fifteen or so)if you hold a decent cruise speed and don't slow for the 5 zones wherever it's legal to do so (200' away from docks with moored boats or marinas). I had this little sprint on the way home from there last September. :D It's quicker to get to the Golden Gate because there are no 5 zones on that trip. From on plane outside the 5 zone at Discovery Bay to the Golden Gate Bridge in 45 minutes! :|err
