We considered going into the Augres River instead of Northport 'cause of the meager channel there. At 5:45pm I called on the VHF for depth information at the river mouth but couldn't raise anyone at the State dock or at the Augres Yacht Club. I even called the State Dock on the cell phone and no answer. We finally entered Northport after the wind and waves subsided.
Can you tell me the depth at the mouth for future reference? Also, do you know the status of the State Dock? And finally, what's a pirate festival?
Countdemonet LOL.. lemme guess.. a retired accountant? Banker? very clever name indeed!
Oh yes.. and welcome to Sailnet!
