Winter in the Pacific Northwest

So I was thinking that we in the PNW are lucky as we can boat year round. For our friends east and north of us, they can come by this thread from time to time to help them with cabin fever/water fever.
To help this craving, we in the PNW can post our latest adventures fee of snow and ice and upload pictures to help our poor friends whose boats are dry docked and covered by snow and ice or sitting in a lonely building waiting for boating season.

I will start:

Winter is our favorite time in the PNW, followed in order by spring, fall, and summer. But winter is not all hearts and flowers. Attached photo was taken two winters ago when we were in temporary moorage while F and G docks were being replaced with new ones. Yes, that's ice.....

We lived on the boat in the Seattle area. May, June, September where our boating month as the marinas and water where not crowed. October thru April the boat was covered and winterized. When we first got the boat we left the dock several times in the winter, but as the years rolled by less and less. We installed a Webasto diesel heating and camvas enclosure the stern deck and pilot house, so its comfortable away from the dock.

We are presently previewing the California coast and the bay area. The rest of this week we will be in the Delta area, staying at Koa sites. Summer PNW and winter in California. Have to buy another boat for the Bay area. A go faster boat that has less covered/enclosed living area. Being we live on a boat we are comfortable in the 31 ft motor
home with tip outs its about the same area the boat has. I wish we had the run about rather than the SUV. Might charter rent a boat and explore the water side.

Anyway, if the boat is winter out fitted you can boat year around in the PNW.

Well ... despite the view, I'll take the Northwest. The movers come this weekend. Next stop Poulsbo, WA. We are looking forward to spending more time on the boat (especially this winter) than we have been able to in the past.

yes, wilderness cruising is nice!

But the boat is all put up until March, and I spend winters dreaming of warmer waters!

SICK - SICK - SICK, I REALLY DON'T WANT TO HEAR THIS!!! We are leaving Montana tomorrow to re-take possession of our boat in Portland. All the tools in our mobile inventory is in the "Mexican Stagecoach" for the boat. All I hear on this post is ice, snow, heaters, babe's in tropical underwear. Some one send me some good news!!! I'm changing my location to Portland so can really get some current good weather forecast!!

Oh, you would like a good forecast?

Well its not the Pacific NW, but SW Pacific instead. Not good for the weekend but looking nice for heading out on Tuesday for a few days. Temps in Celsius.

Now let's be realistic. Winter weather here often calls for sweaters/sweatshirts although some still wear shorts.

I will start:
You do know its not winter yet don't you?
Not to mention we've had the warmest fall in the last 20 years..
I love my boat..but I hate walking down a icy dock.
The water might not be frozen but when its 40 and blowing 30 its just too damn cold to do the boat thing.
For me that is the time of year to crank up the webasto and get all the inside the boat stuff done.
Winter is the only time I envy folks in Florida.

"Winter is the only time I envy folks in Florida."

The RV crowd have figured out that Corpus Christi is about the same latitude as Tampa and Port Isabel about the same as Miami. To far out of the way for most East coast boaters but dandy for us folks. It does get windy though!

It's the rain train. Can be either a fall or winter event but usually both.
Rain = warm.
