I am a single-hander, although I do sometimes cruise with family or friends on board. My homeport is Elliott Bay Marina, Seattle WA, and I cruise anywhere from Puget Sound to Alaska.



I donít live aboard, but I do spend months cruising each year .... :-)

Welcome! A few of us are at EBM as well!

Welcome, from another EBM neighbor. I wish I had been there last night for the fireworks from the Space Needle.

Al, I find the air traffic completely non- intrusive and the vibe below the Magnolia Bluff anything but industrial.

I like EBM as well! I am struggling a bit with getting a slip that works. I get a club discount on docks H and I, but the larger slips face the wrong way for my bow in/starboard tie confuguration☹️

I agree. The vibe is totally different once you get into the marina grounds. We love Maggie's and palisade. All it needs is a coffee shop!

Wifey B: We were at Elliott Bay briefly and couldn't believe all the negative opinions we'd heard, especially here, were of the same place. We loved the marina.

At least some of the negative reviews stem from a couple of issues. It is on the expensive side and it is a ways away from downtown.

The only real knock on EBM is being broadside to the prevailing wind. Eventually Sue will get the right slip. Slips are hard to come by in Seattle, choice slips are of course harder yet to come by. Don’t forget Sue, you get a discount at Maggi’s.

Yep. And tight fairways. On the other hand once you get used to them everywhere else is a piece of cake.

I look at price as a matter of fact, rather than as a reviewable topic. Often it leads to distorted reviews. Think is it can be looked up and it is what it is. It's often a major influence in selection though. I do hate seeing though a review of a very expensive restaurant giving it only 1 star because it's expensive. Did they not know when they went there? Similarly just because a restaurant is cheap doesn't make their food any better or worse, just less expensive.

Distance from downtown is a bit of a negative, depending on one's need.

Hi Dave, I think I got a win (slipwise) today! The VERY wide sailboat that shared my new, longer slip moved down the dock. I checked at the marina office to see who was moving in. Got the good news that the other half of the slip will be a permanent SYC guest slip!!

Or claim it's 45' and hope they don't notice. I actually saw someone try a 5' lie recently. The dockmaster walked over, furious with them. They said they'd pay the extra. The dockmaster told them they didn't have a slip for them. They pointed to the empty slips. The dockmaster repeated "Sir, we have not a slip for you. You must leave now." I was shocked, but kind of impressed.

No, no, no, you silly girls! I’m talking about the dingy. If I brought the big boat I would have to eat at Palisades not Maggi’s. ��

Welcome, the Nordic's are excellent boats.

We spend the winter in Anacortes, and go to Alaska in May. Last year 34 DeFever, this year 34 American Tug. Hope to see you along the way.

Hi Sue,
Welcome both to the forum and to the family of Nordic Tug owners. Terry and I are good friends with Gary and Ginger and heard about you through them. We bought our own (new to us) tug in late 2016, and traveled north to Prince Rupert with G and G this past summer. Good fun and great trip. This summer, we are probably heading around Vancouver Island. Hope we get to meet, and maybe travel some together.
Regards,
Tom and Terry

Thanks, T&T!

My tentative cruising plan is the North BC Coast this summer. I have also been trying to put together a February cruise to Princess Louisa, but haven’t found a buddy boat (I usually cruise solo, but though that the winter trip would be best with at least one other boat).

I hope to see you out on the water!
