More work...but I'm retired right.
I'm envious as hell! Ever since I saw Henry Fonda in "On Golden Pond", I've lusted for a place like that and apparently you have it.

Port of Everett, second largest marina on the West Coast. Proud home of Naval Station Everett and the worlds largest building, where they build the Boeing jumbo jets!

Must be a long walk to the toilet from some of those berths.
Doing the washing would be an all day job , looks like you would have to take a cut lunch.
Sure is a big establishment.

Smile Home port Jupiter Florida

Our home port is Jupiter Florida. We love this town which once upon a time was a sleepy little town. Word is out and this town is booming. People are nice here, water quality is great with the gulfstream so close to our inlet.Our 05 MAINSHIP 34 Trawler is a joy to pilot and gives us great enjoyment. Too bad we couldn't keep Jupiter a secret.

Our home port is Queen City Yacht Club, Portage Bay, Seattle WA. The bay is located between Lake Union and Lake Washington. Our transit time to the Locks and into Puget Sound is about 30 minutes and we can usually be into the saltwater in a half-hour more. What Paua Hana said about Lake Washington anchorages is right on. You can anchor overnight in Andrews Bay and Cozy Cove. Both are very protected and Andrews is surrounded on 3 sides by a park. Cozy is surrounded by houses but it's still pretty nice. I don't know if you can overnight in Meydenbauer. Kirkland Marina can be rough on a busy day due to boat wakes, and is a real bear in a strong S SW wind. This year, two boats sunk at the dock in a wind storm. One of them, a Bayliner 3688, had one wing of its cockpit and a portion of its transom torn off.

She also had a house nearby and if I was very lucky would be at the restaurant and invite us dock behind her home for a few days. She had a swimming pool which in my mind was an outstanding thing to own!

As for home ports, the boat says Pensacola because Kidlet has a house there. Home is where the boat is, and currently we are on the Gulf coast gearing up for the engine swap. It's a boat -- stuff takes longer than anticipated always.

Still, I'm afloat so it's all good. And here in Carrabelle, the phosphorescent comb jellyfish (specifically, the rainbow variety) are in the river. If you're in the neighborhood, dump a bucket of water on the swim platform and watch the lights dance. It's nifty.

I saw these back on the other side of Panama City last January, and am not sure the duration of the visit. They only arrived last week so hopefully will remain for a time.

Mini-science lesson: Comb jellyfish do not sting. I wrote an article about 'em ... let me see: (here it is)

Janice142 Article Carrabelle Sparkles

It's nifty as heck. I will say that I'm not seeing the quantity of sparkles I saw further west and I have no idea why that is. Perhaps someone else knows?

Janice, thanks for reminding me of this.40 years or more ago we anchored overnight many time at Cape Lookout, NC. Our sons were about 6 & 8. They would play in the water and sand all day. We would put them back in the cockpit to shower the sand off in the evening. Because we had limited water we would first hose them off first with the saltwater wash down pump hose. The turbulence caused by the pump would activate the phosphorescent particles in the water. To see them standing there with little sparkellies all over their tanned bodies was so cute. Days gone by, but still great memories.
