...because if you didn't, you missed the best day in a month or so.

95 degees and flat water.

Thanks Scotty and Andrea for the pulls.

I didn't get pics of everyone, and, my pictures suck! oh well.

You found good water yesterday eh Mike? I was on vics from 10AM to close to noon. It was not good. I guess we left too early.

I'm loving their 215 wake. It's perfect.

We seem to be in that 1.5 to 2 days with wind and then a day off pattern right now. The wind literally went dead about 2:00 sunday afternoon J-Rod, I've seen that happen so many times but it's still kind of amazing how fast it goes. Glad you got to enjoy it today.

Doug- Scott was out sunday morning like you were and he said it wasn't that good, but by the time I got off work sunday afternoon the wind had died and it was super hot. I was stewing and pouting all night because he didn't want to go back out. Luckily yesterday was good or I would have gone crazy! Our friend the wind is def. back today

JR- your homies have the best set up possible for evenings when the wind dies all of a sudden like on Sun. Next time that happens I'm calling you guys.

Yesterday was great, it was nice to share vics with you guys. Me, Jpod, and BT were out on my charcoal VLX. Unfortunately we had to get in a screaming match with that dude out there in that little outboard boat, going the opposite way on the slough. He sprayed our boat because we made the turn at the south end. After a little conversation he bounced and didn't come back. Overall super fun day, see you guys out there soon.

man looks great sunday was awesome after about 2 as said. but man i think we were the only boat not rippin huge power turns. I usually make the turn to at the south end but havent said rich said the cops would be enforcing it. He was right there was a po po sitting there right after you make the turn he was just waiting for people to f- up

ya we made the turn at the end of vics and this dude started screaming yelling 5 mph; so we just waved and laughed. Sure enough as we were sitting about half way down they drove by and the old man was skiing and sprayed our boat (no respect at all). So me and Jpod decided to go have some words with them and talk about courtesy; so we drove up and there and had a bit of a confrontation. The guy ended up not saying anything once we pulled up, and they took off. Never saw them again. Its funny having newbees telling you the rules of the delta when we are out there a couple times a week, as he was driving the opposite way on vics on a butter day.

damn thanks Nick. On weekdays, we have been powering through that turn, unless we see boats there of course.

Honestly though, good luck getting that ticket to stick in court with NO signs or bouys at all. That sounds easily beatable, unless you have threaded between boats and caused an unsafe situation.

On the weekends of course, we avoid that area entirely.

Nice....enforcing the rule a the turn, but not giving a crap about the directional rule. Spraying a boat is never okay. I don't care what the other boat has done.

we smash thru that turn on weekdays as well. we saw those skiers last nite as well. they didnt really have a clue as to what the hell they were doing.

j-rod they actually pulled one of the old 5mph signs up from the bottom of the d or something theres one now on the right side on the levy. I just had a funny feeling and didnt turn thru that time boy was i glad. I think i saw you guys coming back in the older cie boat when we were heading out there by the bridge.

I believe in Cali. it's twelve and under must wear a lifevest at all times on the boat Matt, so to answer your question, yes it's a law.

12 and under while the vessel is "under way".
Old     (wake_upppp)      Join Date: Nov 2003       06-10-2008, 7:07 PM Reply   
"UNDERWAY- Not anchored, tied to shore or aground; making progress through the water"
So basicaly if the boat is free floating in the water, it's considered underway.

The CC Sheriff stopped by the island on Memorial Day to see how we are doing. My wife thinks she's John Walsh/AMW or something and likes to give them a hard time and advice about catching the guys who have been looting the island. Anyhow I did ask them if the 5 is in effect given the buoys/signs not being there and they said it's no different then a speed limit sign missing on a road - ignorance of the law/no excuse . . . . . anyway you get the picture. You might be able to beat it in court but it's probably better to just not do it on the weekends when they're lurking there.

I've seen that old guy skiing, in fact he ran the 5 in front of the island last time I was there so I don't know where he gets off hassling anyone. The one direction thing really started with wakeboarding in the mid 90's, we used to go every which way up and down there in the 80's when there was way less boats.

Being able to make that turn when it's not crowded is great but keep in mind the risk with the law. They may quit enforcing it someday if there are no accidents and when/if our cabins/docks are gone but in the mean time I still think it's risky & dangerous on the crowded weekends.

Has anyone noticed the shallow spot has moved off the turn and is now well into the open area right in front of our island? If that continues to build up and starts growing something besides the grass that's showing now at low tide Victoria may get extended!

are you guys talking about the turn at the end by the houses?? man those signs are always gone. on sunday i had a good set going down, i was riding vics and there was a sherrif boat just chillen in the middle, as we started to pass the sheriff come out of the cabin and did the cut off sign so we stoped the boat, his exact words were " when my blue lights are on stop the boat" he looked pissed, the really gay part is his lights wernt on at all and he jacked my clean run. besides the point that hecktic out there.

i got a ticket there a few weeks ago for smashin from secret past the houses onto vics. the boys were really quite nice ab it. he asked us what we were doing and we told him. no more 5mph signs so we didnt think we had to slow down. he said thats all fine and dandy but within 200ft of a moored vessel the speed limit is 5mph. so he wrote me a ticket and now we know and we went on our way.

so now i'm confused as to what rich posted ab the 5's being missing or not posted cuz from what i was told by the sheriff is that as long as theres no boats tied up to the docks then you can go as fast as you think is safe thru there.

"within 200ft of a moored vessel "

What a joke. You could have a hundred cops writing tickets all day at the delta if this were to be enforced. Is Vics even 200 feet wide?

After some long discussions with the Sheriffs (bad memories from last season) it goes something like this. Any legally posted 5mph or no wake zone you are required to adhere to the posting with in 200 ft of the posted area. Any vessel anchored or moored (tied to a dock) you must slow to a speed that will not create a wake that may cause damage to the vessels anchored or moored. If you cause any damage you legally can be liable for the damage. Then the infamous Blue lights on the Sheriff's boat. Any time they are on you must slow to 5 mph. And it is true if the posted 5 mph signs or boyes (sp) are missing it still remains your responsibility to know where the 5 mph areas are. That part just kills me.
The biggest offenders on the Delta are the big cabin cruiser that do not yeld to us smaller vessels. They are not supposed to blow by us with downed riders putting the smaller vessels in danger of taking on water or capsizing. I have only seen one ever get stopped by the Coast Guard.

What about the 5mph between Orwood and Discovery Bay? After they built that dock, a 5 mph sign was put up. Last year boats seemed to slow down for it. Now days now one slows down. Is it a legit 5?
Old     (kikitlo)      Join Date: Jul 2005       06-11-2008, 12:51 PM Reply   
I believe the sign near Orwood says "5mph when boats are moored" or something along those lines

One of our club members got a ticket 5 years ago for pulling someone by the people beaching their boats at low tide on the return leg of victoria right there at the big cut based on that law Jrod mentioned above. (I sh@t you not!).

over 1,000 mile of water ways. If you know the area you can always find a place with just a few boats if any.

The delta goes from Sacramento to Tracy and out to the bay. Hundreds of miles of sloughs. The ones you hear about on here (railroad, vics, grantline, ect.) are choice areas that are up to 3 miles long and roughly 200 feet wide. And yes virtually any day of the year you can find butter out there.

How deep is it out there out of curiosity?
Old     (nsolis220)      Join Date: May 2007       06-12-2008, 12:08 PM Reply   
like 3-100 ft. you gotta know it or you could end up in dome trouble.

t doesnt just go from sac to tracy lik a river its a maze of sloughs from those places, Thats why theres so many miles.

it varies, theres a daily tide of a couple feet. but I was watching a depth finder the other day and the highest I saw (not on plane) was 11.8 and the shalowest was 2.1 but there are deep water areas in the delta too. They bring in huge cargo ships down them

I've been jonesin to check out the delta with the family, wife and 2 boys 4 and 9. We've only been on the Sac river once near D-town and we normally go to folsom or a lake close by. Wanted to know where we could go in the delta for swim, tube and ride maybe some food and drink after...Oh, I probably will be launching out of Lodi, Stockton or Brannen Island since I'm in Elk Grove... Any advice would be appreciated. PS I'm pretty sure I'll stay away from Ski Beach, heard to many stories about that place on WW!

I'm glad I read this thread, I have been blasting by the island at the end of Vics w/o slowing from both directions thinkin its all good, never with boats tied up tho,
So that area is still a 5, I guess you gotta drop the riders at the end and drag them around instead of whippiing the u like we been doing...

Oh and we saw the old guy slaloming out there on Saturday at about noon, shot us a mean dirty look and we were just driving, and this was south of the island down by that dredge, freakin elitists!!
