RichieHD -- so that's your jersey skiff? Cool. I've always had the desire to own a crackerbox, but I suppose it'll never happen.

Hotr0d -- the left hand drive seems normal to me. My brother had a Ford FE powered Hallet back on the early 70's. Hallet used to build boats for "Bruce" of Bruce's Tires fame. All the boats were named "Big bite". My brother's boat had been one of these go fast ski race boats before he bought it. My brother was the third owner, so I imagine the boat was built back in the mid-sixties. The story we got was that Bruce owned the building on Hagenburger Court, and used to trade building rent to Hallet in exchange for one boat a year. . . .

Anyway, pilot was left, observer was right.

Sorry hOtrod, I did not look and see that you live in SAC. That boat is indeed a hotrod! It is a fine boat on the river up there.

BY the way, you can reach the bay from SAC, but I don't recommend it in your boat. It took me something like 5 or 6 trips to get to old SAC in my jet boat. Launching from south SF I just headed north trough the SF bay, san pablo bay trough the carqenis straight under the bridge. Every time I would detour to see and cruise around the old ships the navy or merchant marine has stored at anchorage, they are way cool rusting hulks of history (they are still there, i drove my vette to concord last month and crossed some bridge and saw them)

From there on the Delta was confusing, I got lost all the time and just headed back to SSF. When I bought my offshore boat the guy gave me nautical charts of all the west coast. I used them to drive that boat from San Diego to SF useing compass headings off the coast. I studdied compass diviatians which was nothing new to me (I am also a pilot) The cool thing was I left Montery on the second day and charted a compass heading to hit santa cruz. Upon leaving I was out of sight of land, 3 hours later there was santa cruz. from there a fast blast up the coast and under the gate and home.
The point is the nautical charts also included the delta. All the confusion was gone. Just like reading a road map getting to SAC was easy.
Now you have to realise my boat was a jet, no prop. In the SF bay a prop will hurt you, my jet boat was gassed way up In the 89 quake there was a lot of junk floating around in the bay In the 89 quake. The jet boat was was cool. It hit tons of crap in the bay after the 89 quake. My offshore boat, no way. it was in the water in the SFF mirina. I loved driving the jet boat after the quakke. It was way cool. Hitting pilings and doghing piling was way cool
