My friend launches his C-Dory out of Bodega and can go most anywhere, but he carries a lot of fuel. He often drives far past Salt Point.
I can also sling launch my Zodiac, so that opens up me up to Still Water Cove Carmel, and Point Arena.
Right outside the gate, on the North side there is a small cove we often run out to, and shut down for a float. The fish finder always lights off, so someday I wouldn't mind catching it on a slack incoming tide and jump overboard. I have seen 15' of vis there horizontal roughly.
Tworotorturbo, I need to share more info than I am willing to type. We should go for a boat ride, and chat
