Used to fish from Port Sulphur on down to the "end of the earth" with a buddy from Buras...in fact he and I are having a reunion of sorts as I will be fishing with him at the end of the month for the first time in 20 years.

Venice would have what we called, at Charity Hospital ER, an unfavorable tattoo to tooth ratio

BTW the wife's family are from Boothville and she grew up in Jesuit Bend.

We're at the Port of Kennewick Marina on Clover Island in Kennewick, WA. We have a 20' x 60' covered slip for $250/month. The marina is about 10 minutes from home, it's only about 8-9 years old and is a very nice marina as you can see from the second photo.

Clover Island YC (where we belong) is just a couple of hundred yards from where we moor the boat. We don't keep it at the club because they don't have boathouses or slips large enough. That sounds pretentious but it's really not meant to, simply a statement of fact.

THose are nice looking covered slips...Unfortunately in our area we only have old rickety wooden covered slips. Makes me nervous to even walk down the covered dock. One of the marina's had a fire under their covered slips last year...Took out 60 some boats. It was not pretty...

Live aboard at harbor day club in marathon, in the Florida keys. Own the slip and have everything you need on the island, two grocery stores ,home depot, many restaurants good to great, four yards for haul outs, sunsets from the tiki hut or aboard, great cruising to the west coast of Florida or the Bahamas,or the lower keys and key west. Slips range from 35 ft to 70 ft, and with only 24 owners it's small and private, and a Paradise found.Some slips are for sale ,and we are a live aboard community. Pm me for more.

Some of these slip prices sure sound reasonable for interesting locations. Heck here in Rockport Texas it's $400 plus a month, and Rockport is not all that interesting

For the past 3 seasons we have moored "Timeless" in North Saanich Marina, one of several marinas in Tsehum Harbour near Sidney BC. Got a great deal on a boathouse so moved inside from an open slip in December. Moorage is more expensive but maintenance is easier. Brightwork has never looked better!

You mean Home Port?
LaConner WA
Same as Adelaide post #43

First pic is at the south end of town at the Rainbow Bridge.

Second is at the marina at the north end of town.

Third is of my slip when we arrived from Alaska. We are now two slips away. Lousy pic but it shows where Willy lives.

We live 30 miles up the Skagit River at Concrete.

Eric, that's quite a fleet of woodies you've got there! Do they live there, or was there some big meetup? Beautiful boats.

La Conner is a popular place for boat "shows." There are events put on by various clubs or organizations featuring different kinds of vessels. I've been to a couple of classic boat events there over the years, most of which tend to feature wood boats in beautiful condition. I suspect this might be what was going on when Eric took his picture as it's one of the docks these events tend to use there.

We are with you Dave. It is the middle of summer and my wife would not trade the mooring ball for a marina if they paid us $18.50 a foot to stay there (the price of a cheap marina here). Different strokes for different folks.

Sorry guys I've been runn'in around.
Oliver that's funny. You used seven words to describe the Tug and missed the target by a good knotical mile w each word. Oliver that's the Maggie B .. a real tug but not a working tug any more. It was owned by a very nice and savy gentleman that died fairly reciently. I'll miss him. He died suddenly of a heart attack. We're three stalls north of there now. I worry about the Maggie but his kids will probably sell her and that way there's a good chance she'll get a good new owner. I just hope the "kids" don't try to use her. Old wood boats need special owners. There's another old wood boat for sale on our float. A 1937 strip planked Chris Craft in what appears to be quite good condition. No bling but good solid bones it appears but a survey would be needed to confirm that ... nice boat though. She's 31', heavy on the cabin and has twin Yanmar JH engines. $29K but the price will come down. I might like her myself. I'm sure she'd be a very comfortable cruising boat. A typical old wood cruiser in style but the cabin lines aren't as graceful as the later Chris's were. The hull looks more like a Richardson or a Mathews.

Wayfarer,
That's the Classic Car and Boat show .. as predicted by Marin. Thanks for wipe'in up for me Marin. I had a thread on one of the past shows perhaps it can be found. May make another one this year. Chris is anxious to go bye bye on the boat and I gave up on my electrical problem so still don't know when we'll get underway. Got a mechanic coming next Tues. Would like to run up to QC Sound.

Don't tease us with the Chris Craft description Eric and leave us hanging without a picture.

Sorry Craig,
Don't have any but just for my friends I'll take a few. The old fellow that used to be aboard quite often has'nt been around for at least several months. Boat is'nt listed. It's a by owner for sale thing in the cabin window. The color is old looking white (not bad) and the Danforth anchor is really old .. cast iron it looks. Wheelhouse windows open w hinges on the top.

Heron, that's a nice writeup and recommendation for the Little Washington waterfront. We're across the river, Cypress Landing Marina on Chocowinity Bay. The one thing neither of us have is a convenient fuel dock. Are there any plans to add fuel service there?
