Artist's Description

SEEING THIS BOAT WITH IT’S TOP ALL WIND BLOWN, IT BROUGHT TO MIND PARASAILING, ONLY ON A SHORTER ROPE. SINCE THIS TOP IS CALLED A BIMINI TOP I JUST THOUGHT THIS PHOTO SHOULD BE CALLED “BIMINI SAILING”. I DON’T KNOW IF THIS GUY CAUGHT ANY FISH THAT DAY OR NOT, BUT I DO KNOW THAT HE MOVED AROUND ON THE WATERS SURFACE A LOT MORE THAN HE WANTED TO. I’VE BEEN THERE MYSELF WHEN I WAS ANCHORED IN A TIDEL AREA OF THE SACRAMENTO DELTA WATER WAYS AND THE TIDE STOPPED MOVING, BUT THE WIND DIDN’T. BELIEVE ME, THE WIND BLOWS A LOT IN THE AREA THAT I LIKE TO FISH IN. THAT’S PART OF THE REASON TRAVIS AFB WAS BUILT WHERE IT IS. THE WINDS PREDOMINANTLY COME OUT OF THE WEST ACROSS THE SAN FRANISICO, SAN PABLO AND SUISUN BAYS. SO THE WIND TAKES CONTROL OF YOUR BOAT AND BLOWS YOU ALL AROUND THE ANCHOR ROPE. IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP YOUR LINE ON THE BOTTOM AND STILL BE ABLE TO TELL WHAT IS A BITE AND WHAT IS YOUR WEIGHT HANGING UP ON THE SURFACE CLUTTER. SO I JUST USUALLY TROLL OR LIFT MY WEIGHT UP OFF THE BOTTOM BY ABOUT ONE FOOT UNTIL THE TIDE STARTS RUNNING AND THE BOAT SETTLES DOWN.
