Kevin:

My bellwether for this trip, other than a good router, are the weather buoys. They look pretty good right now for N CA about 150 mi offshore with pressure steady, waves less than 9 -10 combined and winds from the North 15 to 25. The Oregon coastal marine forecast looks better for next 3 days than Monday - Tuesday.

But, we will hear from ASeduction soon. What say you GFC? You did this trip a few months ago following similar weather worries and advice.

In Suasalito and heading out tomorrow mid morning. I also have a Sea Ray that will be running with us, but he will be stopping in Eureka and I will be going to Crescent City. Good window. Hope I can make it to Newport. Then if bad weather comes, I can just wait there and then all I need is a good day window....

First day in the books, leaving mid morning for the big pond. Pics on blog.

Alaska Sea Duction, you posted while I was writing this!

Have a great trip!!!!!

This trip does not seem that difficult, unless you try to make it in one long passage.

People make too much out of Coastal Cruising. Its a series of one day cruises. If the weather is bad, stay put. When you have a one day window, move on. Enjoy the sights, and the towns. If you get somewhere mid afternoon, great! Explore, get a good meal, relax. Thats Coastal Cruising.

This is how I'd do it in my boat.

Mouth of SF Bay to Bodega Bay 45NM 1/2 day to 1 day depending on starting point. Make a nice cruise of it.

Bodega Harbor, in the N part of Bodega Bay, is
an important commercial fishing base and, in season,
an active sports fishing and recreation harbor. During
salmon season more than 500 fishing craft either anchor
just outside in the shelter of the N part of the bay
or dock at the numerous marinas inside the harbor.

Bodega Bay to Noyo Basin 100NM This is a 1 day trip.


The lower section of Noyo River is the principal
commercial and sport fishing center of this section of
the coast. Many fishing boats are based here. Most of
the facilities extend along both banks of the river to
about 0.5 mile above the entrance. Water and ice can
be obtained at several fishhouses with wharves having
depths from 4 to 8 feet alongside. Berths, gasoline,
diesel fuel, water, ice, marine supplies, and launching
ramps are available at the facilities along the river and
at Fort Bragg. Machine shops and marine railways can
handle vessels up to 45 feet for hull and engine repairs.
The phone number for the Noyo Basin Harbormaster is
707–964–4719.

Noyo Basin to Eureka 70NM This is a one day trip, enjoy the ride.


Transient berths with electricity are available at the
marina on the S side of Woodley Island and at Eureka
Public Marina (4048'14"N., 12410'36"W.). Water, gasoline,
diesel fuel, marine supplies, and launching ramps

are available in Humboldt Bay.


Eureka to Crescent City 65NM A nice day of kicking back at 8 knots.

Crescent City to Coos Bay 125NM This is one where I'd use the boats speed and get after it. Leave in the morning, arrive at Happy Hour.

Your weather timing was very good, 24/7 did it. I had my layman's weather router hat on watching you. Even your pit stop was quick, NASCAR like in fact. If you'd goofed around with 8 hour jaunts no telling where you'd be holed up now.

What RPM did you run the 3208s at?

Glad you made it safely.

This was clearly a delivery only trip for you. Something based on a schedule, and wanting to get there as quickly as possible.

Great job of making the delivery fit your needs, and the weather!

You got your boat home. Now time to enjoy her.

Yeah. You did a great job of keeping the move on. You had a sliding weather window and optimized it to get you delivered and home. Looks like the window closed right behind you too. Congrats on a well executed reposition.

Tom,

You may be addressing this in your trip recap, but what speeds were you running at with 1900 and 2200 RPMs?
