Carolena,

You've got the boat I want.

On the NT I'd get a small crane and put it on the aft cabin top.

Anytime you get a chance put up pics of your NT32.

Our boat came with Weaver Snap Davits made for swim grids. Here's their website, and a photo they probably don't mind if I use to illustrate;

Those shots are all stock shots (Getty Images- 550743NZ254, 6398754NZ263, and 5935916NZ059) from the South Island in New Zealand. Murray's a professional photographer. Child's play to Photoshop your boat into them. Lord knows why he did it--- it just attracts more bozos to the area. Same reason I do, I guess. Makes for a better looking photo.

My avatar's the same deal only I don't have much knowledge of Photoshop. So I had one of our graphics guys at work put our boat into a New Zealand shot I snagged off the web.

Marin's right. You should all stay away from BC. It's horrible here.

Plus I don't ever want to feel the need to lock up my dinghy.

Yeah, the half-dozen times I've visited Victoria, BC, the weather has been sunny and bright.

It's true that it sucks here and that it's an awful, brutish place. You'd best all stay on the well trod Inside Passage than venture up any of these long, annoyingly windy channels on BC's north coast what with there being no safe anchorages and all. Just sayin......

Murray - thanks. Davits is probably the way we would need to go, only problem is we JUST fit in our slip now and with the dink on the back would probably extend past the end pilings (prohibited at our marina).

Eric - thanks for the compliment. We also love the Willard. The upper deck on the NT would seem to make sense, but we have a bimini that covers it making a crane impractical. Here on the Chessy, shade in the summer is paramount. I'll try to get some pictures of Carolena II to post (we've only had her since early winter, so not many photo ops yet).

You don't want to know how many Canuck's I know that came here because it's so wonderful up north. Just sayin'

Carolena,
If you were on the "right" coast I'd swap ya boats but yours is probably worth 2 to 4 times as much as my old Willard.

I was going to use davits before we decided to leave Alaska but moorage is so expensive down here the davit idea is OUT.

Now I'm thinking of a trick way to use our 18' Kevlar canoe. It can go as fast as Willy on less than 4hp.

A lot of my neighbors are from WA, B.C.,OR and points north. They all tell me how wonderful it is up there but I've been noticing that they All are here 9 months out of the year. My daughter lives in the Seattle area and has also lived in San Diego for several years. She and her family were here 3 weeks ago and all I heard was how she misses SoCal. Yes, this is the land of fruits and nuts but it is also the land of the best weather in the world!

Murray,
We anchored here in this dreary, cold and desolate place.

Not far from shore it was 400'deep. We anchored at 100' deep hoping we'd not swing onto the beach at low tide. I tried to put another anchor off the stern in 15' of water but there was some kind of grass that would not accept an anchor fluke. So we anchored at 2-1 scope and thankfully there was no wind. And if your'e wondering I did set the GPS anchor alarm. Think'in of you Murray I think you'd like one of those.


Walt, How'd you do that double picture stunt?

Hi Eric,

Why do you use the above combination? Wouldn't at lease 30-40ft of the heavier chain be simpler? (I'm no expert so I'm asking in earnest).
