I must say I am learning somethings that I did know.

Hey Rick, I understand that sometimes a tug and barge can not just pull in to a cove and anchor to wait out a storm. Have to steam in circles until the weather improves. Does that happen often?

True John I shouldn't be so flippant. It is interesting to learn about the different conditions in different boating locales other than the sf bay and delta. I've only had limited experience in a couple other places. None in PNW, which sounds hairy to say the least!!

Al I hate fishing. but thanks. Is that restaurant at your marina every going to reopen? Hope they got rid of all the rats.

Greetings,
Ms. Jennifer. Those that think they know it all really bother those of us who do.

All around the globe there are prevailing currents that invalidate the notion that currents and tides are in equilibrium. The entire East Coast of the US and Northern Europe is impacted by the Gulf Stream, Pacific Coast by the Japanese Current and East Coast Australia/NZ by the Tasman Current. Around the Horn there is a continual current in one direction. Etc Etc

As Murray knows, currents in the PNW can be tough to predict. George Vancouver noted variable currents 220 years ago as he sailed through the inland passages and was completely flummoxed by neap tides.

So no, tides and currents will seldom balance out. The earth's rotation, seasonal tilt, highly variable storms, seasonal winds and slippery water will insure that will never happen.

Geeeez!! It's not about fishing, PG!!

I don't think it'll be opening anytime soon, besides this is the slowest season. If it opens in the spring, I'll be happily surprised. I just won't order anything with peppercorns, capers or raisins.

Al and Mark should do an exercise video. I can see it now. Maybe "Gangman Style".

I'll bet they have to close again once all the rats are gone...

Illinois or New Orleans.

Some get irate if not pronounced as the locals

Yep Skip agree.. found sounds more like fun - New funlander

Is this post relevant to this seemingly endless thread? (Youíre just making it longer Mike. Yeah I know.)

Itís about the PNW. Check.

Itís about tides. Check.

It has a amazing photo of recent high tides in Seattle. It's as bad as a So. FL. hurricane.

Those of you who live there are probably familiar with this, but to me it was new, and interesting, and I never saw anything about it in the media. I feel for the people who might have suffered damage.

High tide in Olalla Bay

Oh, that. That happens all the time up here. The people who live right on the waterline have long since learned to deal with it. It's the price you pay for a hell of a view.

Here are two shots of typical weather up here. No big deal, it just happens and people continue on as normal. We've been on the Mukilteo-Clinton (Whidbey Island) ferry in these conditions. Nothing exciting except you have to remember to run your car through a car wash on the way home to get the salt off.

I don't like fishing either. I'd prefer to drink and pass along the beers.

A larger version of my Carquinez Strait travels this last Tuesday except the water came over my pilothouse/bridge. Haven't we all had such events?
