Winter in the Pacific Northwest

Umm, I like the Delta and I live aboard in PNW!

Ya that be me. Hey Murr... Long time. 2005 to be exact ( when Colby and I came to kitimat). We've made an offer that was accepted on a Canoe Cove 41. Hoping to travel upcoast in the next few years. Planning on either selling the Biz or retiring in the next 6 mo. Had enough... This is pretty funny re-connecting this way!

It was 93* here today, no clouds, no wind. Perfect weather.....for Phoenix. Yup, we've temporarily traded the PNW for the SW. We just got back from 3 days at Grand Canyon. When I have time I'll post some pics. But for tomorrow, I'll be in the pool for much of the day.

Gotta go, the ice is melting in my margarita!

Well slap my ass and call me Judy! This proves conclusively that only the cream of the crop rises to be a member here on Trawler Forum

Great news on the boat...is it local, and when do you take ownership?

Will send a PM so we can catch up

Murray

Murr, did I somehow scare you off? I looked at some images of Sundowner tugs. Very nice! Might be nice to meet up central coast sometime. We are seeking solitude, hence more northerly climes. I have a craving for a fat Dungeness crab.

Hey Murr,

No, you can't scare me off that easily! I sent you fairly long winded private message, but maybe you didn't get it because you haven't been on the forum long enough?

I have to take off in a few minutes to go pick up our daughter, but will phone you once I get home. We'll catch up, and talk boats

The one thing I hate about the Delta is all the damn Dust. If the farmers aren't harvesting they're messing with the dirt. I've got o wash my boat down at least once week. That damn dust gets on your varnish, and leaves streaks dirt streaks on your deck, once a year I have wash my canvas. But then I don't have a lot of mold to worry about so I guess it balances out. The water skiing is slowing down about now but the bathing suits are still out but now they are on fishing boats. It's not that the water is too cold it's just there so many other things to do and after 6 months of skiing it's time to move on to getting ready for winter sports, you know up in the mountains about a hour and half away.

Hey Northern, Solander is a desolate rock off the coast of Brooks Penninsula - nobody goes there in the winter, certainly not me! You would think twice about going there in the summer.

Oh, I know. To me it is just the indicator of things to come. Sure nuf, it is blowing forty in the Strait right now.

A long time ago on TF someone accessed on the web that it was blowing 100 knots at Lincoln Rock in Clarence Strait not far from Thorne Bay where we lived. He sounded like he was fear'in for our safety.

Lincoln Rock is just one of those exposed places that receive lots of wind. But the town of Thorne Bay only gets about half of that. But in the winter it did blow 50 fairly often. We don't miss it but we miss much else about Thorne Bay.

Lincoln Rock in Clarence Strait is like Pt Bishop in Stephens Passage and Eldred Rock in Lynn Canal, very exposed to prevailing winds. During the winter, it seems like these places are always reporting 35 knots or more, 50 knots is very common.

But they all are important and useful to mariners as they indicate weather patterns and intensity. Experience provides for relative wind/wave conditions for intended routes.

Past summer, we sat in Meyers Chuck waiting for a southerly wind to blow through (S55 knots at Lincoln Rock). When it finally came down to S25 at Lincoln Rock, we headed for Ketchikan. Very smooth transit.

Holy crap, we had 60mph winds and heavy rain as the hurricane that hit Hawaii came ashore on Saturday. It lasted for 4 hours. We actually had waves crashing on shore and big time against the boat! My gazebo cover didn't fair very well. Had to add additional lines to the boat. Check out the blog

Northern, I apologize! In my addled state, spending my last few weeks razing and re-doing my "Captain's Cabin" (there's a sign on the door to help me locate it) and remediating the hurricane heater (it was installed by a drug rehab group, I think) I am sufficiently embarrassed to do penance - I promise to spend the entire day tomorrow committing plumbing in my bilge while I ruminate and refresh in my mind the reasons for lighthouse reports
