Ok seriously, I have a question about those. My love snores...like...OBNOXIOUSLY. I use ear plugs often just so I can sleep. However, I'm wondering if that's a detriment on a boat? Thinking of all the things that CAN happen, from anchor dragging to unwelcome visitors, seems like ear plugs might not be a good thing?

Love snores...

DiverChick71
Have you thought of connecting your love to a 12V APAP machine with a comfortable mask?

His doctor should cooperate...

There's a few guys I know from work (military) that have these things.

The guys themselves say it works pretty good, despite the odd look of the mask. They said their wives LOVE them because it keeps them from snoring and keeping them up all night.

Definately something to look into. The smallest I've seen one guy had was about the size of a camcorder bag. On a boat, it wouldn't take too much space.

Re: Sheesh, What Am I Forgetting . . .

The Etchells class rules require two buckets -- guess that provides for "his and hers".

Hats... with brims, for sunny days ... these can happen even in the Pacific NW.

First day of shakedown was awesome . Learning........don't make it to the narrows at the wrong tide . Didn't think it was possible to be making 7.5 knots water speed , and 0 knots speed over ground . I an very intimate with one red buoy now . It was off the port side of the boat for hours it seems . Made it from olympia to blakely harbor , and called it a day . All is well , as long as my lovely wife is in the v birth (she is the one in the middle of the picture ) , headed for dungeness bay to throw out a crab trap tomorrow , heard that is the spot for catching crab . I an clueless really . Buying the license and the crab pot exceeded my knowledge of crabbing . And apparently when asked what will you be fishing for , dinner, is not the correct response.

Not as many boats this summer as usual, you shouldn't have trouble finding room to anchor. BTW, Blakely Island has the best ice cream in the islands:-))
Do you think these boaters leaving Victoria harbor know the danger they're facing entering the Strait of Juan de Fuca?

It looks like you hit the weather window as well.
Have a great time up there.

Aleck bay was awesome , thru a crab pot over , and it was full of dungeness crab in about 20 mins , only a couple females in the whole bunch . More legal keepers than we were supposed to have . Love the san juans so far . Little fog to try out my new radar this morning . Worked like a champ . Couldn't be any happier with this new garmin stuff . Makes even a newbie confident .

Aleck bay at dusk , and everybody has warned me that this time of year it can be hard to find somewhere to anchor . Place all to ourselves .
