Default Sad day at the Yardhouse!!!

The weather was great, the sea was awesome, the boat ran incredible, the food was the best.......we lost 16 slips at the Yardhouse in Long Beach!!!!! All of the slips in front of the Yardhouse have been roped off and they have installed a security gate so that we cannot even cheat!!!!

The only dock space for visitors and our normal Scope group is the long dock beside the sea wall...maybe room for four 38 foot boats!!!!

More bad news....we went to side tie and the harbor patrol will not allow us to side tie!!!!!! We just lost the best damm place to make a lunch run!!!!

We need to go to plan B!!!!! Wherever that is????

DMan...and the D is for Disdain for the city of Long Beach and Depression is around the corner!!!!

That really sucks.......I heard that was going to happen, but was hoping that it wouldn't. What does Steel have to say about it?

I don't get it. They added all the yacht docking in the area toward the new aquarium and didn't even consider the day boater. The yacht dock are and have been empty for the past two years. I'm sure they won't miss me in Lonely Beach.

I wonder if the Poker Run docks would be available to day users. They could at least keep one row of docks open for day users .... nice spot for picnic lunches.

We have the one long dock in Los Alamitos ... I wonder if they would have a problem with side-ties. Or maybe we need to take longer trips .... nice guest dock in Marina del Rey in front of El Torito. There's also the guest docks at the park next to the launch ramp in MDR ... another spot for picnic lunches.

Forget about Dana Point .... they don't like go-fast boaters.

How far is Oceanside ?

I guess we'll be making a few more than usual Catalina runs.

WTF?
