I really appreciate all the input! Itís been a few years since I had a boat and you good people reminded me of some things I had forgotten. So the current plan is to make for Martinez marina and complete the trip the next day or even the next week. I will motor to Martinez and probably till we get into the bay proper. Then depending on winds and so on hopefully we will get a chance to let them fly. I will keep a watchful eye out for ship traffic. I use to sail out of Antioch marina all the time. My last boat, a Neptune 24 was moored there. Once again I am reminded of the kindness of strangers and fellow sailors. Thanks again and have a Happy New Year!
I wish you all Good winds and Following Seas.
