The purchase price is just the starting point in sailboat boat ownership.  It will suck money out of your wallet day after day from this point forward.

Ruedi Reservoir near Aspen. This was late in the day boats were coming off the lake but plenty of wake surfing and there’s a sailboat marina too. Wouldn’t pull our boat here but we found a campsite and taking the fifth wheel and renting a wake surf boat does kinda seem like winning.

Rent a wetsuit, too. That water is not warm.

Well we learned to wake surf on Whitefish Lake in MT so yeah either a wet suit or have balls of stone or something.

 

Btw I really like Basalt. A bit of a covid outbreak so we are laying low but the town is charming.

Everyone loves Basalt. That's why it is almost as expensive as Aspen.

Cool ass place, no doubt.

Figured as much given the views and the stellar places to fish with aspen then so close. Our cabin is way up on Ruedi Creek Road 40 min away from the town. I like this even better. Anyway back to boating.

Yep that's a Trump flag. The OC contingent (mostly Trojans) are Trump thumpers. And there are a lot of them out here.

I see things haven't changed much since I lived out that way.

So how do the moorings work there? First come first serve? Reservation system? What?

Ran across this today on my wake boarding group:


From one of our customers in Cedar Lake, Indiana. Someone sunk their $300k+ Pavati wake boat, then swamped his Jeep and Raptor while trying to drag the Pavati out Should have tried the helicopter first @thequalifiedcaptain #thequalifiedcaptain @captknotright #captknotright @failarmy #failarmy

More money than sense. That is going to be a fun phone call with the insurance guy.

There’s a reason your insurance is more expensive the first few years of boat ownership.

Scrolling through the comments, it looks like they identified the guy as godzilla1350 on Instagram.

.  Yes, first come first serve.  No reservation.  The reason I rolled out on Friday.

It’s only been open about a year.  Toyon Grill.  Sits above the conservancy center.  Nice outdoor patio.  I was adamant we eat outdoors because it was bazaar.  The island completely shut down for months but holy shit the mask wearing was MAYBE 30%.  I was stunned.  And I feel like I probably got the rona.   They were totally paranoid because they have a small hospital but Jesus the rona is going to blow up there and most of the OC trumper areas.

I like the early-80s runabout trying to help them out.

Lake Austin was pretty packed yesterday.

Tons of idoits still don't understand what "no wake zone" means near the 360 bridge. Boat cops were definitely busy all day.

@thequalifiedcaptain has a few more pics.

$300K and it doesn't even look like the boat has the stripper poke option on it

I like it, too.  Notice, it is still floating comfortably ON TOP OF the water. :)

Dude has a bigger truck in his garage and a helicopter. I’m thinking the kid took out the boat and forgot the plug and then used cars poorly to save it. Just idiocy all around.

I don't think the stripper poke option is available if the Pavati is not floating.

True.  And you usually have to pay extra, but maybe not if you have a $300k boat that floats.

Headed from San Pedro to Marina Del Rey. The wife will drive the boy down, and he and I will roll to Channel Islands Harbor where we have a rental for a week starting Tuesday. Going fishing with a bunch of the boy's buddies on Tuesday. We'll do our best to not get the rona. So this is the site where they filmed the Catalina Wine Mixer with Catalina Island in the background. And yes, it's a Trump property.

Have our little armada in front of our rental house. The boat is about 150yds away as we are just onboard of a bridge I can't get under with my mast. Great little house though.

Made it out on LT tonight. Tubing and cliff jumping for the boys. Noticed mattress Mack is having his fireworks at 930pm on Saturday. Lago vista cancelled all of their festivities except their fireworks, claiming this will be the grandest fireworks display in their history. We may be double watching fireworks shows this weekend with Starnes Island tomorrow and Mack or Lago vista Saturday.
