Good for you, John. I wish I could be at the boat this week. Take some pics to show us. Looks like you are a Buffet fan. He is not a great singer, but you can't be sad listening to his music.

I will say that Cabbage Key has one of the best cheese burgers around. Another great cheeseburger is on Daufuskie Island, SC at Jack's grill in the golf club house at Melrose.

Let's go cruising!

All food tastes better when checking the oil in the boat is a prerequisite to go get it!

Couldn't agree more. Only Marin won't let anymore people in. Maine is great. Long Island/naraganset area is great. The Chesapeake is great. The ICW is great. The Keys are great. SW Florida is great. That;s what I love about this country. So much to see. So much to do.

That's right. Gate's closed.

I like the third photo. I'm inclined to think it's Princess Louisa although I've never seen it from this angle on the water.

But more interesting to me is the boat in the foreground. I've seen it before, not in person but I think in a photo on this forum. IIRC it was put up by old fishboat guy in a thread about fishboat conversions. I was so impressed by it I downloaded the photo and added it to my library of boats. Best looking conversion I've ever seen.

On a side note for the PNW guys. Since your water is so cold is marine growth on the hull/running gear a big issue out there?

Nsail- those are awesome pictures! LOVE the one of the trawler in the mist. That is truly one of the best trawler shots I've seen in a while. I like the lines on your boat- looks super nice.

TWii thank you for starting this thread. It is nice to come look at beautiful photos and take a little break! And now I have Jimmy Buffet songs in my head. I agree with Don, JB is an awful singer but he sure sings good songs.

Marin, you are correct on both counts - It is Princess Louisa Inlet, and the boat is a converted 1952 seiner, the Cape Ross. The pictures don't do it justice, as its a beautiful, beautiful boat. And, the people on it were extremely nice. You can find more info on it at capeross.com

I've attached another picture of it (sorry about missing the bow in this shot).

And Woodsong - thanks for the compliments. We love this boat! I've also included a shot of Chatterbox Falls, which is the source of the mist.

Yes but the rate of growth is probably way slower than on boats in warmer waters and with longer, sunnier days.

The beautiful Les Chenaux Islands in northern Lake Huron where access is only by boat. This is near Hessel, MI, where woodies abound and are treasured. Every turn presents incredible sights such as this. Boat houses are frequently more elegant than the homes.

That's a really great shot, Larry. The only Lakes I've had any experience with are Michigan and Superior at Isle Royale. Are there lots of things like barrel back and torpedo stern Chris Crafts and Hackers and Gar Woods in the area you've pictured?

Marin et all,

Note the woodie in the previously pictured boat house called "Whitecap". there also appears to be a "Duffy" style boat as well.

One of the largest and most popular wooden boat shows is held in Hessel, MI, each year and it is coming up Aug 11. Entries come from all across the US.

http://dotsub.com/media/b5ee5ada-5b3...ec4b/embed/eng

The E. J. Mertaugh Boat Works is located there and they specialize in restoration of wooden boats.

EJ Mertaugh Boat Works | Northern Michigan Boat Yard and Marina

There is even a Great Lakes Boat Building School in nearby Cedarville which seeks to maintain and preserve the tradition boat building skills.

Great Lakes Boat Building School

Wooden boat shows are fairly common at port cities around MI including large ones in Presque Isle, Bay Harbor, Traverse City, Pentwater and even one in our Spring Lake. Restoring and owning woodies is a romance and passion here almost as popular as restoring and owning Detroit cars.

Make sure you pack some karma when cruising remote locations. I love the out of the way places here in BC, away from marinas, away from the marked and busy anchorages. I live on board at a dock in the city with pleasure boat traffic daily by my door. We have no want to cruise to such regular crowded places.

But I am the odd guy out. I am aware of the risks, I love the no cell phone no VHF reception and spotty GPS coverage of remote cruising. I am prepared as best I can to cruise into these areas. I try to expect the unexpected.

So the oldfishboat sticks out when itís the only boat around. When some one has issues close by to us yet too far out for usual help. I am the go too guy so it seems. Is what it is.

The admiral after this last long weekend is not all that happy with our cruising experiences. Three days of what should have been fun in the sun ended in me spending almost two of the days working on and towing pleasure vessels that where very happy to have us close by. One tow with my 12 foot Livingston took almost three hours after the original try and fix beach side that took Ĺ hour. I got too work on an old 90 HP merc outboard where the owner had no idea how the motor cover came off. I did walk away from a guy trying to anchor beside us when I found he had no actual anchor. I had the chance to work on a brand new jet boat second trip out for the family, with a skipper on board that had even brought a full set of tools. I even ended the trip towing a 17 footer home for a couple that added some time to our 5 hour trip making it 6.5 hours.

Not a real great way to spend the 17 year anniversary.

I loved the life choice my life style. This up and coming weekend we had plans to get out and about again. But the admiral is out, and at this stage out for? I hope time will pass and she will get that bug again. But this time I am not too sure. These events at times have placed her in uncomfortable places. Not fair of me yet how do you not help them in some need. However this seems to be part of our regular cruising experience.

Yup just donít be there.

Just sharing some experience.

Larry--- If you have--- or have the time and occasion to take--- any nice photos of things like classic Hackers and Gar Woods from your area up there I'd love to see them. I guess you could post them in this discussion but if not maybe in the Interior Waters "bucket." I really like the designs these guys came up with and while I know very little about either brand I always enjoy seeing pictures of their boats. They're great reminders of what design aesthetics can be.
