San Juan Island Film

See this well done video taken on one of the three days a year when it didn't rain. I thought you easterners might enjoy what we on the left coast have to put up with.

Very nice. However I have it on good authority that most of the footage was shot on the South Island of New Zealand. So people shouldn't come here expecting to see this sort of thing as it doesn't really exist here.

Having the good fortune of cruising both coasts, I have to say the San Juans and Gulf Islands are gourmet cruising at its best. As long as beaches and swimming aren't you thing so much. Thanks for the video to bring back some great memories.

Yes, definitely not the San Juan islands. Don't recognize anything. But it looks like a nice place....

That seals the deal us Ron. Just showed my Admiral the video and she said our next boat will be capable of traveling to the San Juan's and claim those anchorages for the glory of all Californian's.

Yeah. You can tell they spent a lot of money to mislead the poor unsuspecting tourist. If if weren't raining so hard tonight, I'd hoped to scrape the ice off the windshield long enough to get down to the boat and check on things.

They say the marina ice may break early this year... Come on August!

Give credit where credit is due! This video is brought to us by our very own TF member - Darren O'Brien!

There's also lots of other great professional videos by him at pacificnwboater.com

Thanks Darren!

We're just trying not send the wrong message to those who think the boating up here is worth a damn. I'd hate for the poor disillusioned souls to think we get any of that sort of weather. It's a beautifully shot piece, but obviously not from here.

Ya'll stay away... nothing worth seeing up here...

Well wherever it is it's a beautiful spot and a well done video. Thanks for sharing. Not sure how we would cope with all your rain though, love our sunshine.

I'm with you, Craig. Let's form a Californian armada and take over the joint with our big bucks, loud stereos, 24/7 gensets and our steroid-enhanced men and silicone-enhanced young nubiles shakin' it to rap crap! That's what's missing in this video! Bring it on!!

(Nice video BTW, Darren!)

Those anchorages can definitely improve with 400 watts of Colt Ford blasting out of my stereo. Let's set it up Al

I hope your stereo equipment is water proof and don't forget the see through raingear for your enhanced passengers otherwise we won't be able to enjoy those bodies. I'm not worried though because your armada will never survive the storms off Cape Blanco.

Hey...nobody said anything about rain and wind! We're Californians...we can't get wet! And we don't wrap up our women folk in water repellent materials, (Well, some do, but they're not coming with us!)

I suspect you're right, though...we would probably never survive such blustery conditions. It just might mess up our hair plugs!

I'm officially rethinking this plan. I'll get back to you...

Just what I would expect for a flotilla from the manly port of San Francisco!

I don't see a problem with cold, blustery conditions...it just may allow our engines to run a little cooler.

Sorry Don. We have a law on the books in California that precludes the use of boats while wearing a sweater.

As Marin can also attest, California boats do not have heaters either. Another obscure law we have on the books that's strictly enforced.

Another glorious day in the PNW (Victoria BC):





Tell me things can't get cool and blustery, even during the summer, on San Francisco Bay (looking west through Raccoon Strait crossing a ship's wake, and south from the Berkeley Marina):
