Mt. Rainier tells you all you need to know about Seattle weather. If you can't see it, it's raining. If you can, it's going to rain.

I know for a fact that shot was taken off Los Angeles. You're just trying to spread rumors that sometimes the sun comes out in the PNW.

That's gotta be the same "Moon River" that's on the cover of Northwest Yachting magazine for November 2014. As for rain, we got our first "storm" in 8 months last week. Every bit of 1/4" of rain. That means we have 7 3/4" to go to make our average 8" of rainfall.

Re; Moon River it is the same. It did not rain today but real cold for my liking. I did a row around portage bay anyway the dam sun was in my eyes a lot. MR also made the cover of Soundings and was a feature boat in a previous JD power source publication. Never expected that much notoriety since I made a point of not allowing MR to be shown in any of the boat shows much to the disappointment of Devlin.

Moon River looks a bit more than a "day cruiser".

I don't know why Devlin and soundings designated MR as a day boat. I did specify and made certain that MR would be an easy single hander for the short runs I do every few weeks when not Summer cruising. The boat is well set up for Longer PNW cruising for two or four with births for more but I would consider that crowding the interior. I personally consider MR as a PNW version of a Down East semi displacement express cruiser that is happy to travel at displacement speeds as I frequently do.

I did not keep a copy of Soundings and don't remember the month. The article is over a year old. If you want more information and pictures there is a fair amount including build shots on Devlin boats internet site just Google Devlin boats.

The covered slip keeps sun(what sun)and water off but not dirt that blows in or spider droppings.
When I was in Portage bay it was fresh water?

It is still fresh water and maybe a bit more polluted. The flush more figurative and just happens because it is fresh water. My thinking is that the more fluids of any type that get to move around the engine the better and in this case no need to hook up the dock water. Instead of salt Portage Bay has Mill weed and I do my share to break it up.

We took full advantage of the pouring sunshine with a trip to Dock Street Marina in Tacoma. We visited Harmons Brew Pub, the WA State History Museum, and the LeMay/America's Car Museum. As you can see, the car museum has many of the classics...

But when there isn't rain, we got something better. . . WIND!!

All you need now is. . . a Puget Sound car wash offered by WSF!!

MV Cathlamet is 328' long with a beam of 78'; weighs in at 2477 tons unloaded. One of several 130 car, Issaquah Class ferries Operated in Puget Sound by Washington State Ferries. I wonder how many of these car owners immediately traded their car in??

Do you know what route that was that these pictures were taken of? Keystone?

Carl-- It was the Mukilteo-Clinton run. The photographer was by the Mukilteo lighthouse. Winds were in excess of 50 mph. The photos were taken by Ross Fotheringham on October 18, 2007.

Those are amazing. The cars in the front must have really wished they were in the back.
