    Calsport Torturing KKMI

    What's the backstory here? Why pick on KKMI? Of all the yards on the Bay, I'd trust those guys to be running a clean shop. Ulterior motive or legal payoff troll?

    OK - well that last post about poor security pretty much kills any idea I had of moving there. I want to be closer to the racing, and Alameda is a long motor to both the Circle and St Fancy. At least...

    Richmond Marina

    I'm mulling on moving my boat from the Alameda Rivierra to Richmond. Partly for a change of scenery, and partly because more of our races seem to be run on The Circle courses, and Richmond is more...

    Not with 77% occupancy. They would be better off dropping the price or offering sign-on deals for new residents (first three months free, or something like that). I checked their pricing, and it's...

    Looks to me like an uncompromising guy met an uncompromising bureaucrat and now a judge needs to hold a beauty contest to figure out which of two assholes is the biggest.

    Westpoint Marina

    The problem with an ebb year is that everywhere you want to be is up-current from where you are now and for every back eddy and scrap of relief, there's a Moore 24 moving slowly or parked in it.
