The straights of Georgia were particularly mean this year. Usually they are bad one day in ten during the summer. This year it seemed they were good one day in ten. I got stuck in Silva Bay for days.

The blow-boaters were happy 9 of those 10 days by the sound of it.

"The blow-boaters were happy 9 of those 10 days by the sound of it.''

Ha! When I was one of them, before coming to the dark side, the best crossings ever were when the wind was NW 20 to 25, on the quarter when coming from Nanaimo. What a blast! Now, on the quarter I don't mind what the wind is, or the wave height. On the beam is worst, but getting beat up with it on the nose is no fun. My crew yesterday had spent 2 months in SE AK this summer, in a blow boat without a full cover over the cockpit. He was very happy to be inside, chugging across a very flat, calm sea.
