Even for well-maintained boats, there will be problems of some nature. The takeaway from that, speaking for myself, is to not get bummed out when something goes haywire, but to roll with the punches and just work to resolve it. Carrying lots of spares and tools helps, as well as assistance from great guys like Al in Ketchikan. I literally work on my boat all winter to get it ready for the Alaska trip, but some things inevitably fail anyway. Hell, it's a boat. Hope to see you up Sitka way next summer. And I still have some Alaska Amber.........
You are 100% right and BTW, I am buying

Ok, I admit I’m Tardy!
Tons of stuff to get straightened out here at home, and almost done.
Promise to get it together and finish up the “lesson’s learned” post.

And just for the record, we had a blast.

O, there you are John, Say, no big deal, but the local law enforcement has been calling, something about needing a forwarding address. Have no idea what they want.

Maybe he's wanted for the "salted dog" incident. Just a thought.

Crusty Chief seems to have disappeared! Could it be he is hiding? Maybe his fuel burn was more than mine. I have heard the USCG has been running a cutter up and down the Columbia River in "Search" mode.

Finished about a week ago. 7 x 10 plastic shed and placed it on the dock. Re-did the temporary dock electric to a main panel in the shed. With the divers, demolition, new shed I am out about 12k so far. Prosecuting Attorney has the case. This will be a long process maybe up to 2 years.

Glad to hear it's done but sad to hear it could be a 2 year process. Curious about why a prosecutor is involved. Isn't this a civil matter?


On an unrelated note--we're bringing Beachcomber to PDX in mid-march some time to get new canvas done. Keep the winds calm on the river for us, will ya?


It's going to be a quick trip. Once we get to Tyee Yacht Club where we're leaving the boat for a couple of weeks, we'll meet with the canvas guy then get a rental car and head home. Lots of stuff going on right then and it's a bit of a strain to take a couple of days to take the boat down there.


Once he's done we'll get a rental car, come back down and bring the boat home.

Estamated 30k in damage and was arrested and charge with felony property damage. Once the criminal part is done, then we can proceed with the civil case if needed.
