Gale force winds in the PNW starting last night.

This is a short video I took this afternoon. Does the weather no justice. We watched waves breaking against the jerry protecting our little moorage.

My scuppers need some attention, I had about ten gallons of water in the laz last night due to a few cracks and the wave braking against the swimstep.

Had the same weather here in Campbell River - winds to 55 MPH (sorry, my wind meter is in MPH not knots.) Lots of action but the biggest thing was the noise.

There is a bilge but it sits just about an inch above the bottom of the laz so it can collect quite a bit of water prior to it kicking on. I just manually evacuated it. I am going to be replacing the scuppers and working on finding the leaks for a dry laz.

Check NDBC buoy 46029. Columbia River Buoy. AIS show several ships standing by off of the Columbia river. Bar is closed even to ships when seas exceed 20 feet. I cannot imagine how miserable it must be to be on a ship just jilling around in that kind of conditions.........

Hmm. . . Maybe that explains why I had 3 plastic garbage bins and a couple of lids pinned against my garage door this morning. The address on one of the lids was from nearly a mile away, but it didn't fit any of the cans. I'll have to return the lid. . . at least the owner will know the direction their bin went. lol

We'll see if pasting a link to our Facebook page works... We had 50mph gusts the other night. Woke up to find a Tolly 40 had dragged her mooring all the way across the bay here in Port Ludlow and ended up across from us and wedged against the outer dock. She missed us by about 50 feet...

Hey, it worked! Hit the next or previous button to see the angle from our boat.
