Check with construction supply companies . Not like Home Depot but contractor supply companies that supply things like saw blades, concrete release,safety equipment etc.Google sand bags. WS

There is a sand bag filling station at the entrance to the Palo Alto sailing area. Not sure if they have free "bags" but there's a mountain of sand there for the taking. I can check later this week I have a customer down there.

I love that GIF you're using for your avatar. That said, somehow I think it would be funnier if it just kept searching, rather than offering the last two comments. But, that's just me. It's still pretty humorous.

How many do you need? We could probably spot you a few or include a larger # in our next order (next week and we have them in a few days after the order).

Question is, what would happen if those were laid down on San Pablo bay muck. We have a secret spot that works great on a medium to high tide, but is too exposed otherwise. A few yards of hard bottom would increase our sailable days there. Case in point, last three days were sailable if there had been a bit more water.
