We've never put together a reunion from this site. Up until a few years
ago, Correct Craft put on an event every year at Marine World, and many of us met there. I've also met severl people from the site who have stopped by my house in Discovery Bay. You are welcome to do so as well.

I've thought about trying to put together a group out here, several times. But two things work against me. 1) our kids summers are barely 8 weeks long, and we fill them up pretty well 2) a little thing called work.

No West Coast love - too far to make it to the meets on the other side of the country.

Sounds like we need a Lake Powell Meet!!!! Or Lake Tahoe Meet!!

If you put it together, I'll be there.

But, not too far to attend others. Towed my boat to Green Lake Wisconsin. Was an adventure and a blast.

So West Coast people - list the best lakes to meet so we can pick one and get something planned.

I would suggest Lake Powell or Tahoe - Just because the scenery would make it that much better.   Any other lakes that would be about middle ground for everyone?

I have only been out twice this year :( Gonna hit Lake Mead up this weekend if the weather holds out.

Tahoe is a great place. But, it can be challenging for small
ski boats, is very cold in terms of water sports, and, it can be a challenge to find lodging in the summer. Strictly for boat show activities, it's great. In addition to the annual wooden boat show, Riva and other have conducted their international reuinions in Tahoe.

Bass Lake would be a fantastic site. Somewhat like GreenLake. Unfortunately, the crowds would be prohibitive.

I think Shaver Lake, outside Fresno, would work. Not too many hotels,
but a big campsite right on the lake, a few motels, and lots of private residences for rent.

Shasta is possible, but it's really big, and really spread out.

Maybe some place small like Buena Vista?

I'd like to get this back to the top.

I'm all in for a Lake Powell or Lake Mead. I have a fondness for Havasu as well. 2015 is DONE, so how about 2016?

Its too late to adequately plan a worthwhile event in time for people to get it on their calendars for the year.

Havasu sounds good - Mead is so low the ramps really suck right now, Haven't even made it out this year. Maybe this weekend :D hasn't warmed up yet and been busy with other things.

Bump Bump - Have been tied up with other things lately and not on here but the weather is nice and ready to get the boat out.

Do we have anybody up for Havasu or Mead?

Hi All,
Please allow me to stick my foot in my mouth here... This thread is 2 years old now... Looking for the perfect place may never happen.. Of course you need to pick a spot that is hopefully conducive to smaller boats, have a ramp worth using and generally a place to go during the day while on the water and perhaps a camp ground or hotel that everyone can converge on.
If you continue to just ask for opinions, that's all you'll ever get, and in the end never hook up with anyone.
Someone has to take the ball and run with it. Get 2-3 others to agree on a destination and post the dates... You'll find out that more people will come out than you think. Thats how all the mini gathering have started, and many sustained life over the years. Someone has to start them..
Green Lake, WI started in 2006 !!!! This reunion in central Wisconsin started out by a small group of us planning a weekend at a lake and within 3 years, we had 50 boats and 200 people attend.....

2015 is Dead,,,, In the South West??? Whaaaaattt...
Just do it !!!!

I have read this post that has been running for years now and there has not been a West Coast Reunion yet. But, I am with Mojo on this, you just need to set a date and make it happen. I see that there are only 11 West Coast people who have posted on this site with BKhallpass having traveled the entire country to events. I ran the numbers in mileage to a center point from the people who have posted on here.

This location is in my back yard and I can not think of a better location for boats our size, for water skiing or boarding, waterfront dry camping (no hook ups), local lodging, home rentals, resort rentals and such. I am located just outside Lake Almanor California. The distances from various locations are Seattle to Lake Almanor 672, San Diego to Lake Almanor 653, Las Vegas to Lake Almanor 566, Salt Lake to Lake Almanor 633, Boise to Lake Almanor 539, Phoenix to Lake Almanor 850. These are all great distances to travel towing a boat. However, the distances points to the fact that lake Almanor is a central location for the West Coast. It is a very popular camping, skiing, fishing location and camp grounds are hard to come by.

I recommend a camp ground owned by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) called Rocky Point Camp Ground. They have first come first serve camp sites which are packed all season long and they also have two group sites that you can make reservations for. One site has 16 spots for trailers/motor-homes and 4 tent only area, pit toilets and no showers. The cost is about $500 a day for the group area. The smaller group area is $350 a day. There is also lodging within one hour or less for those not wanting to camp.

The other group site is a loop that has 10 regular camp sites also water front. I am willing to attempt to make reservations for this location if the group is will to make the trip. Making reservations can not be done until Feb-1 2017 @ 8:00 AM So specific dates could not be confirmed until after that time.

Another option is staying in local lodging and making day trips to the lake as our family does from our home. This may be easier to schedule as lodging would be easier to book by the individual This would allow selecting a specific date that may get booked prior to our group booking. There is lodging in Chester California and in Susanville California. I live in a very rural location and have quite a bit of parking for boats if owners were concerned about parking their boat over night at a hotel.

like most of you we spend our time in the summers hanging out at the lake with friends. So, the more the merrier and we will call it the West Coast Correct Craft Reunion.
Let me know what you think.


I took photos today of the group camp area and the boat ramp and will post them.

J D that is just a gorgeous area would love to go there.

        We are now talking going to Powell next summer the first week in July, We will be renting the big daddy house boat staying a week. Only thing is we put in on the east side I think at Dangling Rope Marina ? and I'm guessing Craig your on the west side? Since I have not been there yet I don't know how far the group will go west.

Keep the information flowing. So far there is not much feed back on this topic. Locally I have talked with 5 families who are interested. A few of them are members on this site that have not been active in a while but are interested in a reunion.

I have never talked to anyone that skied Lake Almanor, I have driven past the lake.
What conditions do you find at Almanor?   It is very pretty in the pictures.
Any Glass available? It is so far from everything I would think traffic is minimal.

As you see in the pictures the lake is glass. This is typical for early spring and fall. Anytime a storm is present there is enough wave action to sink a boat. I found a 20 ft boat two weeks ago left on a buoy sunk that appeared to have been in the water most of the summer and owners were not around. This is not common and it appeared neglect was involved in this case.
