Keaton Gathering
June 29, 2008
at Buckley Cove, Stockton

Here are pictures from the Keaton Gathering held at Buckley Cove in Stockton.
We had about 11 Keaton's show up on a really nice day. Jack drove down
from Sacramento and visited with us.

After we visited and admired the boats on shore we followed Bob Dowling (v-drive owner)
up to the Stockton Water Ski Club island where we had lunch and visited.  The ski club
island is where the next Keaton Gathering on July 20th will be.

At the end of the day we all headed back down the Stockton Deep Water channel
back to Buckley Cove.  On the trip back we passed a cargo ship coming up
the channel. Surprisingly, it put out hardly any wake.
