Son and grandson - Florida bound out of Gulfport - great trip! One of quite a few. And one reason out of quite a few.

Looks like a Glendenning synch where you only use one lever


Or it's heck-a-va turn....

The most important thing in that pic is the young man wearing a PFD. Bravo.

The Glendenning sync needs the passive throttle slightly engaged - maybe it is.

Memories. Been on the water a good portion of my life, now 62. Started working on my dads tugs about age 10, first trip to Alaska from Seattle at 12 on an old wood tug with a heavy duty Atlas of 200HP. Spent the whole summer working in and around Sitka, towing logs, logging camp floats, barges, what have you. Who could forget that? Had boats of my own and taken the kids on trips to the San Juans on an old Monk cruiser, the navy whaleboat and hope to soon with the 34 CHB just bought. I once threatened to leave the area and move to Montana. Neighbor lady said ha, no way, you got too much salt water in your veins. I poo poohed that, but she was right.

She was right... that's for sure. In my mid 20's to early 30's I left San Diego and spent 9 + years in upper Sierra Nevada Mountains. Made money, had great time. Left the Sierras in 1983 for SF Bay Area waters. Never intend to leave!

Fun, Fun, Fun


Note: As you might be able to tell... LOL


In bottom photo Cooper was a bit pissed... cause, the current had taken him some 100's of feet from our Tolly. We hollered to him that if he wanted to get back he'd better learn real quick how to row correctly. At first he was all over the map... with us yelling explanations on how to row. When he got back he knew how to row; but, at first was madder than a wet hen!! I call that a speed learning row course. He mellowed out and was soon laughing about his adventure!

Gathering spot for very busy and dispersed families........
Three generations aboard this weekend in honor of Mother's Day which has become a little tradition.
Priceless.

Badger is our Base Camp to Adventure in our corner of BC's north coast, where almost all the islands and mainland bays are uninhabited, there's virtually no private land or docks in anchorages, miles of beaches without footprints, forests & mountains with only game trails, and where you can go days without seeing another boat

(Zain, casting a glance back towards Badger at anchor in McMicking Inlet, Campania Island)

When I was working I used to say that being on the boat was my chance to escape the insanity of work and go to the peaceful quiet of the boat.


Now that I'm retired I just say "because I can".


IMHO there's no greater way to spend a day than goofing off on the boat with one or more of the grandkids. Doesn't matter if we're on our SeaRay or on the Whaler. Being out there with a 5 year old with wide eyes and an eagerness to learn just makes my whole day.
