So here we sit in Ilwaco waiting for a weather window. We've had some time to clean up the boat a bit, do some reading and upload some videos. Doug and I walked the length of town and that took 10 minutes including some time to buy some smoked Black Cod.
It seems to take forever to upload videos here so I'm just providing the links to Youtube.

Great video's guys. It looked like a fun trip so far and you didn't get major beat up. Can't beat that at sea. It looks cold to me though. How cold is it there?

I don't know why but TF's software duplicated every one of those videos. Check the number in the upper left corner of each video to watch each one only once.....unless of course you want to watch one a couple of times.

Capthead, it's running 55 - 60. Pretty comfortable.

That's good for inside but I like to steer from the fly bridge and down here it's usually 70's and above on the water this time of year. I saw the vids were duplicated and also noticed the numbers so I skipped every other one.

Thanks for the videos. Short, choppy sea-states are often encountered in the San Francisco Estuary's bays, not dissimilar to the seas you encountered. Decided not to take my boat out today because of the strong winds presently here.

This is great and am enjoying the learning. Thank you for posting. This is a similar boat to what we'd seriously consider owning one day.

If I'd have had my wits about me I would have provided an introduction for a co-worker of mine who was in Ilwaco earlier Monday at the marina. He would have loved to have met you and talked boats for a while. I would have provided a little warmup beverage for you all. He favors a single malt.

We ran from Brookings to Ilwaco on Sunday and had one of the nicest days on the North Pacific I have had. We were able to do 25 knots all the way. 11 hours and 30 minutes dock to dock. Are you using a weather forecaster or just sailflow and buoy reports from NOAA? A fast boat did open up new possibilities in that you could do the trip entirely in the daytime and tied to the dock at night.

Your boat should be named Rapid Transit. We will engage Omni Bob for the first time tomorrow morning at 5:30 am for a go-no-go second opinion. This will be the first time we have used a weather router. And yes, daytime only is a better deal if you can do the speed (and pay for the fuel - ouch).

We are running Nobeltec Odyssey as primary and Navionics as secondary.

Left Ilwaco at 6am. Doing well but now about equally rough with the other day. We are getting used to it so it doesn't seem so bad now. Sure hard to type however. Past Cannon Beach, Tillamook in hour or so.

So far Verizon continues to give us good service. Spot is on if you want to follow along.
