Are you sure she's going to say yes? Could be a long way back to the dock.. Sorry, I'm not on the West Coast but I hope someone who is will step up.

Also, be sure you have the ring tied securely to a lanyard around your neck. It would totally suck for it to go overboard in a flurry of excitement and wind.

I hope you find someone to help you with this- I would definitely do it but I recently moved my boat up to Big Bear lake so I could rebuild my trailer.

Good luck! Maybe ask at local sailing clubs, or yacht clubs? If you found a race boat to volunteer crew on, perhaps the captain would be inclined to do this for you after knowing you?

Does anyone even know of some good sailing clubs or marinas to call and see if they have any sailors that they know of that would help, i called a few places but they all want me to rent/charter a boat for hundreds of dollars and i cant spend that much....the ring was enough haha

casioqv, you have any friends you can pass this along to that are still down here?

Sorry, I can't really help other than suggest putting an ad on the bulletin board at local yacht clubs and craigslist.

I asked The Admiral to marry me by sailing her past a sign on the beach. I used a wedding aisle runner, and doubled it up for two lines of text. I painted the message on it (Make sure you use the paint that will work with the runner plastic)

She wasn't wearing her glasses, so it took a couple passes at the sign before she noticed it. She didn't say anything for a while, which was a might uncomfortable. Later she told me that she was waiting for me to get on my knee. I was busy sailing the boat that was definitely too shallow for comfort.

22 years and 4 sailboats later, we're still married.

Good luck!

Wish I could help you, Ty, but BC is quite a ways up the coast. Best wishes for both of you.

First - don't dismiss CP. He usually speaks from experience.

Second - that's not a beer, it's a Corona. Calling Corona a beer is like calling the Hunter Edge a yacht. I'm always surprised at how many people don't know how the tradition of putting a lime in the neck got started...

Third - I hope that something gels in the next week for you. There are a lot of boats in Newport Beach, CA. I suggest posting a flyer (print out your first post) in some of the local marinas and yacht clubs.

Good luck!
