Re: Bridge one, sailboat zero

I live just south of there. Last time I went through that bridge, I couldn't get the bridgetender to answer my call on VHF channel 9 after several calls. I finally used the horn and he saw me and raised the bridge. I assume the bridgetender still has no VHF radio, which may account for the debacle. Last years christmas boat parade went smoothly as the bridge was raised for the entire parade.
