Default New Bay Area fisherman

Hi folks - getting familiar with THT. Mr Mbuna steered me this way, thanks mbuna!

I live up in Sausalito, looking to purchase my first boat. Been doing a lot of research, getting pumped up! I've been fishing and on/around boats all my life, mostly in SoCal, but never been the owner operator. Purpose of the boat would be both for fishing and family fun, definitely want to get out on the open ocean. Pilothouse style, around 22-26', looking at both glass and aluminum. Parker, Osprey, Defiance, Steiger, North River, Duckworth, a few more, all looking good! Planning to have the boat on a slip to start here in Sausalito, will be getting all the right training, plenty of calm water to practice on before heading out the GG.

So - before I buy - looking to find folks around that might have those style boats, that might be willing to take on a friendly hitchhiker. I'd be willing to pony up for the gas to take a ride, see what the boats feel like. Anywhere in the Bay Area would be good, I can come to you!

Also, I've been trying to sign up with the Coastside Fishing Club site, seems the site is having some technical issues, registered and paid the fee, but can't seem to post. That looks like a great club with lots of great local dialog for Bay Area folks.

Anyhow - good to be here, I look forward to making some local fishing friends, and hope to see you out on the water!

Were you ever able to get on "Coastside"? We did have issues.

There's also a Judge 27' in Napa if you're interested in one (not mine and didn't end up trying to get a ride).
