Once you get enough training, go to Ayala Cove (angel island) and moor overnight. To me it is the epitome of why anyone wants to get into boating.
Powerboaters participate on this forum, many of which are former sailboaters who were converted. ... Nevertheless, you may also want to follow the Trawler Forum, a cousin of this one.

Powerboaters also enjoy Ayala Cove which I fondly remember as Hospital Cove.

Yeah. A total troll statement... but look how you got sucked into it.

Diving seabirds are a common sight at Ayala. Visit the the state's Angel Island website. Docks are only for day use. Overnight, one uses fore-and-aft moorings which can be tricky to attach because of circular tidal currents. The island provides a great view of the SF bay, and there are lots of historical sites to visit there.



The ketch on the left has it backwards. Mooring boats are to face Raccoon Strait and the Tiburon Peninsula.

The dark-hulled boat is yours truly.

That's a nice boat! Is there a thread where I can read more about her?

Thanks again for the intro to the Trawler Forum. It's been very helpful to me so far.
