A 34x 16 foot slip with horrible access goes for $1245 / month.
That'll keep the riff-raff out. Astounding!

On my dock (62' slips) most pay $900 a month, but after various fees more like $1100, and we ARE the riff-raff! The fancy expensive marina is around the next point...

So jealous-especially given the weather here the last two years. Wish I could join you, but must keep head down and working for now so we can shove off soon...

Bridge clearence is 65 ft both auto and RR, do you clear ? We get compariable weather to the BaHa in the summer with some very warm August weather in 105 deg range but dry because of the desert around the water. We already had 90 deg's and today was 84 and partly cloudy. Don't get me wrong we love sailing around the San Juan's in August.

Yup, we are doing the SJ's for August of this year ourselves. Our bridge clearance is 79', so I don't think we'll be making it that far up! Too bad, I don't even remember what 90 feels like anymore...

Hah, fair weather friend! Gulf Islands in January, now that's good living. Now where did I put my survival suit and parka?

Ha! That's why we have a palatial pilothouse and hydronic heating with all power furling on remotes- we can do the San Juans in January in our PJ's.

Just come off Cape Flattery with all those toys- I haven't been out there yet when it's above 50 degrees...

Re: Ocean Work Next Week - PNW the Real Thing

Simple finances- I was paying Bellingham 400 dollars a month for sitting there. I can berth in Warrenton for less than 100. The haul out fees here are cheaper too, and there is no sales tax. The list goes on. I'm just cheap Charlie. Youv'e know me long enough to verify that. I am two days from prime cruising ground, rather than one. And I have decent wind all summer long.
