This website has, it states, four members. I would like to know who you are......all four of us. Hal Schell would be sad about this. I guess times are a changing.......not me. I will hang in until I am the last and then I will post messages to myself. I love the old swamp

The delta scares me. I'd get lost or smack a half submerged piling or snag. Either that or get hit by some drunk in his speed boat. I like the ocean where it's nice and safe.

I was just curious as to who we four are. I grew up as a toddler fishing with parents at Helen & Hermans . I now reside in Fresno but bring my boat up every time I can get away. I was not seeking any information about anyone other than what their tie to the delta is. I always see website names and know there interesting folks behind those odd Internet handles

Not sure what 4 you're referring. I'm sure they'll show up sooner or later. My father used to take me to franks tract just so he could catch 3 more stripers. That was in the 50's.

There was a time, a few years back, that I was the only RO on the west coast. I don't feel so lonely anymore.

I've been hanging out in the delta since 1992; though not so much any more since having to sell my boat in 2012. Still remember the first time up there. I lived in Marin at the time. We went up there right after the 4th of July. We were cruising through a weird little town called Isleton. Saw some signs - we were like, "What the heck is a Crawdad Festival?". We finished the afternoon at Das Cliff Haus (those steamed oysters!!!). Unfortunately, both are long gone. Ever since that first trip, for many years, couldn't get enough of the place. I guess times change. I get up to The Point, Fosters and some of the other establishments on occasion. Still would like to get back on the water.

Hi guys! This is a voice from the past...... remember me??? It is fun to see names that I still remember and things about old times when I had my boat. Times do change.....some for the better, some not. Charlie fixed up my boat and turned it over to my son who towed and barged it up to Nome Alaska were it has lived ever since. The first 2 seasons of a TV show about gold dredges in the Baring Sea, he and the boat were hired to take the underwater photographers out to film. Once in a while I would see her tied up at the dock on the TV show.....

Now to my question: Someone I know is considering buying a 34' boat which needs to be hauled and bottom painted among other cosmetic work. What boat yard in the Stockton area would you recommend? Also, is the canvas guy at Tower Park still in business? I forget his name?????

Thanks!!!!!

Can't help with the haul out. Perhaps check the Delta Chambers website. Yeah, the canvas shop is still at Tower Park. Here is the website.

Hi DBH and ginman!!!

Ya, I'm still alive and well. I do enjoy my new life, but still miss the Delta and boating.... I spend time on facebook these days. I see Al's pictures of fishing which I enjoy. Retirement seems to be going well for him!

Ah, yes----west coat canvas!!! I just could not remember the name of it, one of my new issues of being in my 70s :( Well, it turns out my friend has decided he better get his taxes finish to see how much he'll owe Uncle Sam Obummmer before he makes any financial decisions, so a boat is on the back burner. I think he woke from his dream of an older boat for a few bucks when I started talking about getting it surveyed and insured..... good ole reality.

Take care and enjoy a safe and sane boating season!
Fond memories, Liz

Never mind if you can't reach me. I need a couple of weeks to straighten things out. I will have the same old handle and avatar. If not, I'm gone. Peace, dudes. And be careful of the delta bars (they aren't all under water).

Hi Liz, great to hear from you! It's been a long time.

And look who else showed up: Yzer! (Dan, isn't it?)

Nice to see some old friends are still lurking about.

Reporting in from the way north headwaters of the Delta! <G>

Hey Speedo, if El Nino continues, you may have a full lake again. We've only been there one time and it was 2 years ago. We are thinking of bringing our travel trailer and boat up for a week this coming summer.
We no longer keep a big boat in the water and now just have a 22' Cobalt bowrider to ply the various waterways. The Delta is still our favorite.

Three full lakes: Oroville, Shasta and Whiskeytown. I currently split my time between Chico and Redding.

My wife and I discovered boating relatively late in life. Bought our first boat in 2004. We got a 19' runabout thinking we weren't sure if we would really like it or not. We moved up quickly to a 27' express, then a 34' cruiser and now live on our 47' aft-cabin Atlantic. I guess we liked it!


I'm not afraid to die. I'm afraid to be alive without being aware of it.

I tried to go to The Point a couple weeks ago but the traffic holdup due to construction on the Three Mile Slough bridge on 160 was so bad, I turned around and went home. I understand the work has been completed. Maybe next weekend when it dries out a bit and warms up.
