This is your brain on one of those Coast Guard
Celestial Navigation Classes.

This is your brain on
Bonneville's Celestial Navigation Course.
"I have taught navigation for many years and have taken other celestial navigation courses. This is by far the best and most thorough course I have ever taken." Emery

Remember when you wrote your legislator,
with your concerns about marine hazards damaging your boat,
at the Provo Marina?

Well...your voice was heard.
(Although I have have my own thoughts on dredging timing),
I have heard the closure of the Provo Marina referred to as the
Provo Marina Migration.

Let's load up the gear and head north to the
Lindon Marina.

If you haven't got a slip here...better hustle.

Pretty sure the Lindon Marina does not have a Quagga Mussel Sanitation Station.
If you are going to put a boat in Lindon, from any other body of water,
give DNR a call before you splash here.

When will Quagga Mussels hit Utah Lake?

At one point I was told it was a done deal.
and I think the possibilities are still good,
but... if as a V.I.S.B.O. (very important sail boat operator),
you feel wind instruments retrofitted to these yellow buoys,
would make your recreating experiences safer on Utah Lake
(feel free to share any actual terror,
or worse things that have happened to you while sailing on Utah Lake),
please contact Marshall Baillie ( ) with your thoughts on the subject.

Who knew that contacting your legislator would have been so well received?
Maybe we'll be fortunate enough to have real wind data to warn us of dangerous lake storms.
