Well. That answers the "Why do you carry a firearm on your boat?" question I saw on another forum. I'm proud to live and boat in a state that supports open carry, stand your ground, and other 2nd amendment rights.

One of my neighbors on the Ship Canal found a homeless person living in his boat. I've seen dozens of needles floating on Lake Union and scattered about parks and sidewalks.

Time to get cruising!
As a resident of Alaska who visits Seattle a couple times a year, I retain a 9mm CC firearm alongside a a non-resident Washington state CC permit.
Just saying, Welcome to Seattle,a true Left Coast quagmire.

If you passed through Canada going from Alaska to Seattle and vice versa wouldn't that be a real no no? Or does some marine rule override the standard 'no handguns in Canada' law?

I've caught a group partying on my boat when I walked up late at night who I would have probably otherwise been oblivious to. There were just kids looking for a cool place to hang out and drink.
I suspect a lot of us have no idea what goes on at our boats at night when we're away.

We've caught kids intending to but our alarms went off and my wife spoke to the over the speaker. Talk about a couple jumping.

This is Texas. I sleep with a 9mm single stack on the ledge next to the bed.

I just walked up with my phone camera recording and the light on and asked if they could state their names for the police dispatcher on speaker phone, lol.
Never saw em scatter so fast.

You are correct, however, we stow the gun in Seattle, yet we can transport one via the Alaska Ferry to Bellingham, or claim it in a locked container, were we to fly. We often drive from Prince Rupert to Seattle, while one can feel naked for the duration, there is less of a concern while amongst Canadians, fellow North country folks. It is when we are back into the gross elements of big city life that we are aware of our surroundings, and time of day.

Same here, backed up by a 'Greener" hanging on the bed stead.

In Texas you might need that to defend yourself against a drunk cop entering your apartment by mistake, thinking it was hers. Only if you are black though.
