So, what's up with Oyster Point? With that new rip-rap seawall along the shoreline,
launching looks way unfriendly. Is there a plan to put in launch ramps? It's a shame
to lose that launch site.

Without the Oyster Point launch area, I know of two other launch points into "Flying
Tigers Bay". One is the Haskins Road access. It's a bit of a pain (long walk without
using the 4x4 "road") but useable.

The other is the shore access point behind Genentech. That launch seems to be in a
huge wind shadow. Anyone tried launching from there?

Are there any other access points to that area that I'm missing?
