The GB50 has always been one of my favorite! Welcome aboard! We keep our GB42 in the SF Bay Area and know of a few GB50s around here. Good luck and hope to see her someday...you guys too!

Caught the current just right but visibility was zero through the channel. Radar and GPS to Hat Island the perfect weather! Just off Eliza Island now.

Update and photos of It's All Good

Two months into ownership and it really is all good. The boat is performing very well, handling the winds and moderate seas of the Pacific NW. Just back from a weekend in Winslow on Bainbridge Is. Watched the Seahawks do their thing ! Here are a few photos of the boat in Edmonds Marina in December. The one photo shows the previous boat (still for sale) 'Shoot The Moon' (red sailboat) and the bow of 'It's All Good'.

Happy New Year to all, good health and fair seas and of course warm winds.

Cheers!

Don and Teresa

dkwills -- Looks very nice. If you are so inclined ... join the Puget Sound Grand Banks Owners Association (no cost) and bring her to the Rendezvous in Roche Harbor May 8-11th.

The GB 50 is a sweet ride and yes, we are warmer and drier already, plus the nice warm showers are very nice too ! Now it's just getting used to a boat that is a little slower on the response to helm changes. I must admit though, it is a great boat to be out on whether a day trip or a longer cruise. We are looking forward to being out a lot this spring, summer and fall.
Cheers !
Don
