Bay Area Antifoul Paint Choices

Dido. on D also. have 34 Irwin but cant recall slip #. Its towards the end and on land side. Only been there a few months but love it. Great place in comparison to marinas in New Jersey (home port) and was surprised how reasonable as NJ averaged $2,000 to $3,000 for 4 months. However, surprisingly, slips are the only thing we''ve found reasonble in the Bay Area, but truely enjoying the local. Thx for the tips on cruising. Is Angel Island worth exploring and I assume anchorage is on Tiberon side - would that be correct or do the have a dock? Safe for overnight anchorage? Also, sailed over to Pier 39 w/kids recently to spend the night. Lots of fun but they put you next to the sea lion dock which is fun for the first 45 minutes of barking. Then you decide to sleep and relize they dont. Any thoughts on where to berth for a night and still be close to city attractions? Also, drove up Rt 1 (or as they say, "took the 1")to Bodega Bay last Sat. Cool town, reminded me of smaller sea coast towns in New England with crabs the size of Maine lobsters. Is it a difficult sail fro our area or do most of the locals usually hang a left once clearing Golden Gate and head South? Monteray a good weekend cruise (ie..wind, currents)? Again, Thx for your thoughts.
