Re: Jerry's Gas Tax !......

Seems as though there are some knowledgeable people posting on this topic and could possibly provide an answer. Why aren't any new resevoirs being planned or built in California? For the price of those tunnels, I would think the state could purchase land and build at least a few more. I don't hear ...

Re: Not satisfied with your mapping?

Travis,
You helped me get the Navionics Upgrade Card earlier this year.
I just did an update on the Navionics site, but none of the Discovery Bay or Delta Coves (ghost marina) sonar mapping you did, which shows on the Navionics Webapp, shows up on my card.
