    Re: Twilight Zone Current

    was your out drive straight?
    was your anchor rope directly out the bow?
    was the boat heavier to one side?
    these will make the boat slip to one side in the current and or wind

    Twilight Zone Current

    Experienced a very strange phenamenon.....somebody please explain to me.

    Yesterday and today I went to fish around the Bay Farm Bridge which connects the island of Alameda to Oakland airport. The tide was going out, I could see the weed and bubbles flowing out INTO THE BAY. However, my boat was floating AWAY from the bay and into the estuary.

    There was some wind from the bay toward the estuary, but it was intermittent and not realy enough to counter the current. I was in a small aluminum boat.

    Why was I floating opposite of the current?
