Fort Bragg, California
So, I threaded the needle to get in and out of Dolphin Cove. Once inside the tiny mairina, the fun continued with very little turning room and a unoccupied sport fishing boat that was hogging the slip I needed to access the fuel dock. I had to improvise and pulled off a side tie to the end of the 6' wide fuel wharf finger... wish I would have got a photo of that! The fuel hose was too short, yet undefeated I filled jerry jugs, decanting them into the tanks. In the end the commercial wharf would probably been worth the risk of a scuff on the rail.
On the way out of Dolphin Cove I filmed the narrow pass.
