Pm me and I will give you his contact info.

Congrats! I've always loved a Portuguese bridge, and your Bluewater has a lovely, saucy sheer. Yes, more pics please!

I just found out this morning that my friend sold his this past week also. It was listed in FL.He made the trip from San Diego and did the entire loop. These are great boats . I wish I could've picked his up . You rarely find them on the east coast.

Thanks all! Finally had time to steal some photos from my wife's phone so I could post a play-by-play of our trip up.

Pics or it didn't happen right?

1. Leaving Olympia. Pea soup.
2. We saw lot's of "fogbows" (Seadogs) along the way.
3. Trusty little Navionics app alongside Radar and cross checking charts and depths got us through the fog. (best app ever).
4. Finally, we're out of the fog at the Tacoma narrows
5 & 6. Time to enjoy the view
7 & 8. Taking turns at the helm. Gotta say a pilothouse with the heat on is a nice way to sail in the PNW!
9 & 10. The Ballard Locks on our way to our slip in South Lake Union
