Weellll, not such a big deal after all. Crossed from Everett to Kingston last Friday during a small craft advisory about 1100 to find 10 knots SSE wind, 6" wind chop. Returned Kingston to Everett on Sunday at 0945 despite the gale warning into a roaring 6 knots, building to 12 knots SE wind, 12" wind chop. No spray on the windshield either day.

Local Salish Sea weather is VERY location specific, and timing is everything. Taking advantage of land masses to provide a lee, altering course as appropriate to minimize vessel motion, turn up the heater, enjoy!

By the way, the Kingston Marina lights are fantastic! Kudos to the City and Port of Kingston for providing such a nice vista during Christmas.
