PNW would be Washington State...you are on BC's South Coast

Hi Murray,
Yes, technically you are correct, but someone from England would probably not care about that. Don't you have more important things to worry about?? I know I do!

Steve,
Congrats on your new Tug! I wish you great fun and save travels!!
Tom

Pet peeve or not, the PNW by most non marine sources includes BC, Oregon and Washington. Cascadia is a long forgotten term that was tossed around 150 years ago or so when boundaries were being discussed from the Juneau area down to the Columbia.

Wikipedia is a good simple starting place for geographical descriptions. Many tomes suggest SE Alaska and a small bit of the Yukon are in the PNW.

And yes Murray, I perfectly understand your reasons and viewpoint for desiring a separation from the US. The Douglas cruising guides differentiate the BC regions too, fitting with your desires. It definitely simplifies book and region titles.

I put a provision in the sale agreement that the boat is at the buyers risk while under survey,and make sure the surveyors know. Tends to moderate any over the top testing.

The price agreed is quite a bit lower than that mentioned in the advert, the problem is that there are no other NT37's for sale in the UK / Europe to compare with, so any thoughts on pricing / how the boat is specced would be appreciated.

I'll run the boat at WOT for half an hour or so, what should the engine temperature should be reading? I'm expecting 16-17 knots depending on how dirty her bum is.

Any other comments on the pro's or cons on this boat.

Thanks all

Steve
Hi, Congratulations on being a new NT skipper. Here are some of the information you asked.


my NT 37 wot is rmp is 3065 and sped is 17-18,5 Depending on the loading of water, fuel and other stuff.

Temperature is all rmp range 78-80 C°.

I think the price is good for you if the boat is okay.

My mom is Canadian and grew up on Vancouver Island. Always called that area the PNW. This reference also included the Puget Sound area and Olympic Peninsula. It also included the western part of BC.

Then shouldn't it be the Pacific North East, as it's in the north east corner of the Pacific Ocean? North American North West would make much more sense

I understand your point. I do try to recall to either refer to the waters as the PNW and BC or to the Salish Sea depending not the areas discussed.

Of course, there are other misnomers that are common. For example, I try not to refer to US citizens as “Americans”. Canadians are just as “American” as US citizens since we share the same continent.

Commendable but don’t forget those Chileans...they’re Americans too!

Pacific North west has always, in my experience, referred to the Washington & Oregon states when discussing ocean waterways. As in the Pacific North West of the US. The BC coast is the BC coast.

Exactly.

If anything the Sunshine Coast could be referred to as the PSW of Canada.

note to US residents. - The rest of the world does not use the USA as the centre of the universe to reference everything else from.
