Sharing a rental truck Got a big art project? Let’s all go in on a truck to get our stuff there. Interested? Add your name:

Bonnie-3147 at kokiri dot org – renting a panel van in Sacramento. If you’re in the Sacramento area and want to transport something in it, let’s talk.

Sharing a storage space

We’re renting a space in San Leandro for $55/mo. Contact Terry Floyd (find on FB) for more info.


Memocracy 1/2 (Captain Matt Bell) – two 10-person boats.

Radio FMerisle (Captain Thipdar: thipdar {at} comcast [dot] net) – one 6-person houseboat.

3147 Yacht Club (Captain Bonnie: bonnie-3147 (at) kokiri (dot) org) – one 10-person houseboat plus a patio boat.

Patio Boat


Got spaces? Looking for a crew? Looking to crew? Make a note here:

Solara can sleep 4 complete strangers comfortably, 6 close friends cozily. Plans are to sail out of the Emeryville Marina on June 5 to meet up with the houseboat flotilla on June 6. For info on crewing the boat or sleeping arrangements, contact Terry Floyd @ (510) 207-4423 or email

Any boats looking to share/rent a sleeping spot? If so email

Floating Docks:

Will the Community Platform again make an appearance? YES! The Community Platform is in storage (along with Matt’s game platform and the privacy teepee). All of them fit neatly inside a 19’ U-Haul truck, but if more projects are going to be built this time, it is far more efficient and cost effective to rent one large truck to transport as much as can be packed, rather than multiple smaller trucks (and the Marina has some strict parking policies we have to observe). Who would like to coordinate the truck rental?

Radio FMersile and La Belle Ephemera are planning on building a floating dock specificly for a speed boat and a patio boat. It will also house La Belle Ephemera, at least until Saturday afternoon; on Saturday afternoon, the floating dock will be repositioned and repurposed for use by the performers that will be entertaining at the Saturday Night Dance Party.

In addition to what’s listed here, you can check this spread sheet for boatshares and rideshares:

Sharing a speedboat on Saturday

A 1-day speedboat rental with waterski/wakeboard package is around $350. No one waterskis the whole day, so 10-20 of us could go in on a speedboat rental, or we could charge $10/person as a passenger ferry for Saturday day trippers to offset costs.

Who’s interested:

-Scott Norman -Daniel Finfer - Matt Bell - Christine Peterson - Mike K - Zoe Miller - will bring the big pull-behind inflatable toy again - will pay up to $150 for shares - have children ages 11 and 6 who would like to go - Zachary (and I’m guessing a bunch of others from the FalseProfit houseboat) - Pablo - James H. (I’ll donate to the cause, just let me know who to send money to) - Ratha - Randy Hencken (I’m in if we can get a wakeboard).
