    Default Whittier Ramp April 13

    Went to Whittier last night April 13, 2013 to start sea trials. Here is the report for the Shrimp opener on the 15th.

    The road is mostly clear. The parking lot has some lumps of ice that you can park on, but space is limited. If people park willy nilly there will be no room. There is no way in Hades the parking lot across the tracks will be open. The ramp has quite a bit of ice on the one lane to the right (West). The other two lanes in the middle are open enough. There is some old snow/ice with a whole lot of gravel mixed in at the top of the ramp. I did not slip once. Go slow of course. I was in 4 wheel with studs.

    It was blowing pretty hard. Gusts to 30 according to the weather report. Miserable cold at the launch and parking lot. Miserable boating I would imagine. I did not get the boat off the trailer however. Y-pipe leak.

    With a leaking exhaust, I was in no hurry put the boat in the water. I have it back at the mechanic now to sort it all out. So, no I did not stay. No reason with it blowing nuclear and having a leaking boat.
