Seattle Boat and Afloat show

The Seattle Boat and Afloat show is January 24 to Feb 3, 2008.* there is a free shuttle that runs between the boat show, Quest Field and Afloat show South end of lakeunion., and the same ticket gets you into both.*

*
Since we use to live where the Afloat show is being held, I will be down/around a couple of times visiting/looking/wandering..* I am hoping to meet some of you during the boat afloat show, or if you pass by Everett, 30 miles north of Seattle, stop by and see the big ugly slow trawler.

RE: Seattle Boat and Afloat show

Frank** * I live in Bellingham, and can't speak highly enough of life in this city. Bellingham is a University town (Western Washington State University), a respected school, therefore having a good cultural base, and geographically perfect in its location. Right between Vancouver, BC and Seattle (when you absolutely insist on a big city fix), with snow skiing just fifty miles to the east, and the San Juan Islands at your doorstep. Nearly on the Canadian border, the Gulf Islands are only a partial day cruise away. The Port of Bellingham maintains moorage in both Squalicum Harbor (Bellingham), and about twenty miles north at Blaine Harbor (city of Blaine). New comers often have to accept moorage in Blaine for a few years before they can get into Squalicum Harbor. Great restaurants, hospital, book stores, parks, and climate all join to make Bellingham a great place to live. Real Estate prices and moorage are much better than the Edmonds area as well. *I must warn you however that many a Californian has turned and run after a dark and gloomy northwest winter. Even our summers can be very cool, wet and unpredictable, so do be prepared. Call or write any time for a chat about life up here. 360-815-2797, carey@textype.com.

Frank -

A little south of B-ham is Anacortes, and a couple of miles inland is Burlington where I'm currently building a house while living on the boat at Anacortes.* This area is a little less sophisticated than Bellingham (i.e., you're not required to own a Prius* to live here ).* But it's a bit less expensive, and there are slips available.

Seattle Boat Show August 6 9


*
There is a Seattle Boat Afloat Show August 6 9 at Shilshole Marina that some of you might be interest in attending.* Its not as big as January show but most of the name bands will be there.* A good time to be able to go on and compare boats.* The best show is still the big January Boats Show and Trawler Fest.* Besides the Boat Show, there is a lot to see and do in the Puget Sound.* Heck, come on up and visit as Everett has vacancies also and a lot to offer, but we sure miss Lake Union right down town Seattle.*
