Thanks for the info. So far one of the most amazing things I have seen on the water in 2015.

Looks like the forum video player isnt working. Here is the youtube vid.

" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350">

We decided to go on a little adventure and did a 140ish mile round trip from the Richmond Marina to Bodega Bay today. Stopped by Tiburon for some breakfast then headed out. Water was really nice out there except for the potato patch, which stirred up some freak water...huge swells and breaking waves coming from all directions. Used 13.5 gallons and took about 2 hours each way, cruising at 25-30 mph. Anyone interested in doing a group trip with a possible beach camp in Tomales Bay?

The Potato patch has rolled the older Coast Guard 42 foot lifeboat over along with one 40 foot sailboat that I know of. I have seen rouge waves there myself, and was warned to stay clear even with the 34 foot Pearson sailboat that had a heavy keel. Keep your eyes open in that area, or better yet stay out of there on an outgoing tide.

We have been talking about camping at Tomales Bay. The challenge is you are "supposed" to check in at the Point Reyes Station and pay for the campsites. Not sure if they actually check or even if they can check if you spent the night. I typically just launch at Nick's Cove and drive across the bay. My boat is way to small and slow to go from the SF Bay.

Ah yes the power of the Pacific! (Although there are some crazy waves all over the world.)
