Mark,
You need to lift those fenders.. that should be good fo another .2 kt

Unless you were just getting rid of the Bay funk off the fenders..

That's why I'm reluctant to display that photo. But not to worry, the fenders were brought aboard directly after the photo shoot. (My deck hand was more concerned taking photos of Mahalo Moi than taking in the fenders.) Be gentle, we had just left the bow-and-stern moorings at Ayala (Hospital) Cove at Angel Island.

I wouldn't worry about it, Mark. We see boats cruising around up here all the time with their fenders out, power and sail.. We leave ours out sometimes if we're not going far and don't want to bother pulling them up. At least yours appear to be the same color as the hull which is a classy way to go.

Two of the most powerful tugs on the coast are based in Bellingham or nearby, the Garth Foss and the Lindsey Foss. They often have fairly long runs to get to the ships they're going to be assisting. You don't see them taking in all their tires and bumpers for the cruise, right?

Drift....
Marin, while we were leaving our marina on Friday, the Garth Foss was sea trialing just off the breakwater. What a stunning piece of equipment. The stack was so large I could not believe it was the exhaust so I had to look up the boat. Yeah, it needs that stack for exhausting 8000 HP of cycloidal propulsion power. Wow....

Greek tug with Liberty ship (now museum) in the left background on St. Nicholas day when all ships tooted their horns at the appointed hour. Don't most all tugs have a high bow-wave?

My gypsy is a combination and works equally well with chain or rope. The rope is an 8 braid nylon, and the chain is 5/16" G4. Great combination for Moonstruck. No noise at night, and the rope rode takes the shock off the cleats. Beside that rope doesn't rust.

The Garth Foss has been up here for a number of years now. I don't know how the rotation with the Lindsey Foss works but we do occasionally see them on the pier together. But there's always one or the other here except when they're actually out assisting a vessel.

I can't find it quickly...but weight in the ends of a boat isn't always bad from what I have read.

It was something about being too light and affected too easily from wave forces...just don't recall the correct terminology.

Anyone have a good link to an explanation of end weight being good or bad? Tad if you are out there?

Today is the day to replace my old Purasan MSD with a new electro-scan with salt feed.

Kevin,

A little thread drift here ... Having only spent time in Beautiful Alaska during the summer, it's hard to imagine that March weather compared to here, but what is acceptable outside temp for the Alaskan boater to work outside?

Generally if its sunny, the 30's are OK but you need light gloves for any extended time. That's hoodie weather for me.

If its in the 40's especially if its sunny, that is a nice day to get things done.

As it is now, with highs in the 20's and windy I'm limiting my work outside to going to the truck, or the store for something. Yesterday I cut a piece of starboard using a skill saw in the cockpit and it was unpleasant.

Alaskans are weird. When it gets above 50 a good percentage, not everybody but a good percentage break out the shorts.

I've seen the jet skiers out the day the lake breaks up. Thats truly masochistic.

If it hits 70, then we are in our cars with the A/C cranked up.....
