The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.
Want to keep your mobile devices charged or use a small appliance away from shore? If your bareboat charter plans include being away from the dock for more than a few hours, beforehand, it's a good idea to understand your boat's electrical system and how to properly utiitize it.
San Francisco Bay's strong winds are a challenge to boats even when they are resting at the dock. Properly tying dock lines and fenders will limit your boat's motion in the slip and help protect her from damage caused by being pushed against the dock by the wind.
