Re: First boat: Cal 2-27, Pearson 28 or Islander 28?

Congrats on the boat. I'll second the advice about going in and out of Coyote Pt. We were at Coyote Point up until a few months ago. We really liked it there, staff was great and the other boaters were generally friendly. Once you get in it's pretty well protected with nice weather for work days. After we got a little more comfortable we moved up to Oyster Pt as we got really tired of looking at the airport so much. Oyster Pt isn't quite as nice and there's no protection but it ends up feeling a lot closer to the City and the bay. The wind at Oyster Pt is brutal coming out of the marina towards the end of the day. You may want to consider getting on a waiting list at Brisbane if you want something more protected and you're planning on moving up this way.

Oh, believe me, I will be careful. I've looked at the depth charts around the channel, there's no room anywhere past the entrance markers. I'm sure it'll be even more exciting come summer winds.

Thanks for the tip on Brisbane, I missed it somehow when I scouted the area. Even their web site looks more inviting somehow, and it looks like it's quite a bit cheaper than Oyster Point to boot, so maybe it would be a good idea to get on a waiting list, especially with the exodus from Pete's Harbor.
