We had a lovely dinner at the Point restaurant in Rio Vista last night. It was the "change of watch" for Ox Bow Yacht Club and Matt was installed as Commodore. The meal and service were great! If you're ever in Rio Vista, give them a try. They have a small dock on the Sacramento River, or there is s large dock at Delta Marina right behind the restaurant.
Our webasto was blowing cold air this morning (after working fine all night). Luckily it turned out to be the easiest thing we've ever fixed on the boat. A quick breaker reset and we are back to being toasty warm.

We were "harbor master" this weekend, which meant we cleaned off the tables for dinner and took home the trash and sign in sheet. It was a gorgeous weekend and Hulk had a great time with the other dogs there.

Heading over to Devil's Isle. Saw three freighters already in just five minutes on the river. One passed right in front of us as we turned into the main river. We're turning off onto a freighter free slough now.
