Howard, I never knew Dana Point went through that but I spent a few days there in the early 2000's, maybe 2003, and I noticed that on the dock I was on there were only two boats that had a friendly and party atmosphere going on. The dock across from my boat had people aboard several boats and they just stared at us having fun aboard.
It's too bad boating got polarized and much like the political scene today, it seems like.
I went to the marina yesterday for the first time in a week and now being two months a landlubber, you should have heard all the "I miss you guys, it's very quiet here now, when are you coming down?" I guess it's nice to be missed but I say it's time for equal sharing when we do get together.
