I just had my boat hauled for a bottom job in the Rio Vista area of California and I was told that the nexxt day a 38 ft Hunter was being hauled for inspection due to being lifted two ft out of the water on the main channel by a whale. There names are Delta and Dawn a mama whale and her cub, and they are being hearded down the river by fire boats with water hoses 70 miles back to San Francisco and the ocean. Today they were given antibiotics for the third time to help correct wounds recieved by props and the effect of fresh water on there skin and wounds. As of now they are circling the river in front of the Rio Vista bridge and the marine experts are giving them the weekend off from travel due to the holiday boat traffic.
