Why don’t you sail down to Redwood City yourself? If your Pearson is in good shape, this shouldn’t be much of a problem, just a long day. The big thing is to plan your trip according to the tides. When are you contemplating making the move? I can check your route against the currents if I know the date. When the South Bay ebbs, you will be sailing against the (strongest) current in the ship channel. Is your engine in good working order? (Can you provide some specifics on your boat- I’m not that familiar with Pearsons.) It’s an easy reach across the slot to Pac Bell Park. As is the leg from the Park to the San Mateo Bridge. Depending upon your draft, you may need to stay in the channel and to the west of the San Bruno Shoal. South of the Bridge, the channel narrows considerably. Stay in the channel, there is no water to speak of outside of the channel. Also, be careful going up the Redwood City Slough, I don’t think that they are maintaining that channel anymore and again, it gets real shallow, real soon. Are you in the new marina there? It looks real nice in the Pictures from Lat 38. I haven’t been down that way since 2000-2001 so my knowledge isn’t that current, but you will gain the local knowledge pretty quick once you’re down there. Unfortunately, my dance card is a little full for the next month so I can’t help you, but you should do fine on your own.
