    Joe, if we go with the boat, you and Kristen are more than welcome to hang with us.

    Dave wants to get closer to the date, and check out weather patterns - we won't go if the weather is bad.

    That would be assume if you guys make the trip. I am starting to get a headcount and reconfirming with others. Last time we had 5 PWC's and I think all 5 are planning on making a return. If AL and Crew shows up, that could be another 5 PWC's. 2 SoCal folks have shown interest (Buckdog aka Darrell + Lewis Lipstone). So I think the ride will range between 5 and 12 PWC.

    I'm interested, pending good weather.

    Where exactly are you guys planning on launching?

    What is required/recommended in terms of gear?

    wetsuit
    helmet
    VHF radio
    spot
    EPIRB

    We are going regardless of weather. The only thing that will stop us is rain. Last time I had on a wetsuit to prepare for the worst and it was sunny and glass. My SPOT is with me on every ride. You should do it. Here is a link to the event (via FaceBook) with all the details: https://www.facebook.com/events/715084591892833/

    Looks like we are free Oct 11th, and Kaitlyn will be with her other dad. So just Kristen and I. PM with details, like what to wear / bring, how much gas money, food, what ever else?

    Never been to fleet week before, and grew up here. Hopefully, its not boring

    Try this link for more details(https://www.facebook.com/events/715084591892833/). In terms of how much money to bring, that depends on how much fuel you will need. Last time we went in 2012 we rode 71 miles total. I would plan for around 100 miles of riding if your thinking how much fuel money you will need. You will need a launch fee which I believe is $10. Depending on where you are coming from, you may have toll. $6 to $8 depending on how many axles you have. Bring food, snack, and drinks. We eat on the water. Some people that don't have ample storage have a backpack on with all their food and drinks in there. Being that we don't know what the weather will be like, you will want to plan for the worse. So wetsuit, etc. Will it be fun, YES. There is no better view on the water to watch the Blue Angels and all the big ships. San Francisco is one of the more beautiful cities around and to have an event like Fleet Week there makes it a really fun affair.

    In regards to you and your wife on a 700cc PWC, good luck. That is the best way I can describe it. The reason I say that, the water can be rough if it is windy and with the amount of boats on the water...it can be a hand full. When we went last time it was GLASS all the way to the SF Bay and back. Inside the Bay around Alcatraz it was more rough because of all the boat traffic. But once you get there...your just floating around. Some folks will probably want to go out under the Golden Gate Bridge if the water conditions are favorable. Something to think about. PM me or reply here with anymore questions.
