We are also on the San Joaquin River Delta, nearish to Art and very close to Flywright and CPseudonym. We boat year round and love that we can be anchored out in quiet seclusion just a short trip from our slip.

We are in a covered slip and miss the views from an open slip but not the heat. We are at the end of the dock though, but for the side tie next to us, so still have somewhat of a view.

Another Puget Sound boater here- we moor on Lake Union, and can be on the salty Sound in about 30 minutes. We often take spins around the Lake or Lake Washington, as well as do frequent weekend trips to places like Bainbridge Island, Gig Harbor, Poulsbo, and Bremerton.

Yup- it IS God's country!

What do you consider to be a short trip?

I'm interested in that comment as my daughter lives in Kirkland and I have the opportunity to buy a small trawler for chugging around the lake. I say trawler because I have seen, in person, what those Lake Washington winds can do. The private docks, however, are loaded with Cobalts of all sizes.

If you were to take a complete circle of Lake Washington a 8 knots, how long would it take?

Our favorite place (thank you Al) is 45 minutes if we don't have to wait for the bridge to open. An hour if we do have to wait. There are a plethora of other places within an hour or two. Come visit.

Walt, Lake Washington is about 22 miles long. A trawler putting around the lake (about 45 miles total) at 8 knots can make a full day of it. You can anchor at Andrews Bay, Gene Coulon Park, Cozy Cove, Juanita Bay, Kirkland Marina, Meydenbauer Bay, and Yarrow Bay as part of your cruise, though.

Lake Washington is about 25 miles long so about 8 to 10 hours. Being fresh we use to tow the run about out in the middle and ski/tube/scurf all day, use the Eagle as a mother ship. There are only a couple places to anchor. Most were usually packed so we just drift. Go out about 10 before the thermals kicked up and back about 7 when the thermals died down.

We miss Lake Union.

So, we're talking about 4-6 miles from your slip?

Those last 4 (red) are relatively close together. I'm not familiar with the other 3 and their location on the lake. I've been through the locks a couple of times and what little I know about Seattle, I'd probably wind up at Elliot Bay. I was curious about the lake but I'd prefer being on the sound. Actually, my preference would be up where Marin is but he said it's closed to all Californians.

Wait a minute now, I thought Marin was from California?

I just plotted it on Open CPN.

It's 7.2 NM from PG's marina along a lazy stretch of the south fork of the Mokelumne River. At the end of that trek lies a very serene, private and peaceful lagoon...just a 5 minute dinghy ride from a store/restaurant/bar/water toy rentals. Everytime I go there I feel like I'm a hundred miles from civilization.

That's right, Sausalito. But when I was just a wee lad my mother realized the terrible mistake that had been made so we emigrated to Hawaii where I lived until I moved to the PNW almost three decades later.

Sausalito was just a fishing and railroad town when we lived there with a smattering of artists and writers (of which my father was one) living on derelict boats in the harbor. We didn't live on a boat, we lived in a fisherman's cottage one block off of Bridgeway.

I've been back once, sent by my employer in the 1980s to hire a helicopter and film a huge saltwater pumping rig Boeing had been involved with heading out of the bay and under the bridge bound for Prudhoe Bay in Alaska. Afterwards I had some time to kill so I drove over to Sausalito, Tiburon, and San Anselmo, places I had spent time as a little kid. Needless to say there was no resemblance of any kind to the towns as I remembered them.

Other than to change planes at SFO or LAX I have not been back to California since.

In Tiburon, I miss the railroad yard, turntable, and dock for loading railroad cars on barges for voyages across the bay.

Yes, I spent a lot of time there watching the switch engines work. My mom and I even got to ride one around the yard for awhile.

Maybe it just seems that fast...I always underestimate that trip. Now I know why!

My home port is Tupelo, Ms., birthplace of Elvis!! My boat is located 20 miles east on the Tombigbee Waterway, a man-made canal which is about 45 miles south of the Tennessee River. The waterway connects the Tn Riversystem to the Gulf of Mexico. Out my back door, I see all the Loopers pass by in the Fall. Jolly Time
