Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

Evidently what the southern water naysayers don't understand is the full enclosure usually zips off down to a bimini type thing. Then there are the "world cruisers" who trade off what looks like a tuna tower with solar panels, wind gen radar, dingy davit and more on the boat.... The alternative being a bigger alternator. :>)

That sounds like a very quick run. Keen to see the video. Shame about running out of fuel at the end but you got her in ok by the sounds of it. What was the heater?

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

I think it was a webasto ..... with temperature heater control. The key with this is that they only burn about .1 gallons/hour as long as they turn down when the temperature is reached. For some reason the thing ran full bore for hours on end which I think it what consumed the fuel.

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

I have now read Mack's write-up of the trip, and I understand where we differ in describing a passage. When I would say that I had averaged x knots for passage, it would be from anchor up to anchor down. What he seems to have meant is the average speed after doing the slow parts getting out of harbour and across the bar, and before doing the slow parts going up the Straits and into harbour... the fast, downwind surfing parts. i have no problems with that boat averaging ten knots for that part of the voyage.

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

Yep no worries Jim. That 10 knot average started just after we crossed the bar, and for the 160 nautical mile run up to Flattery. The rest of it was about 7.5 knots.

I think I snagged a picture of your ass end as you left the boat haven.........I'll look.

That's a sweet run indeed. Especially at this time of year.

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

Oh man ..... I would have waited for that ..... I am the man that got up at 5 am and got us out of there so we could get to lake union in time.

Lets keep in touch. I will try and keep the forum abreast of when I do deliveries.

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

Yes, by all means let me know.
It's cool being on the dock I am, if you have to be on a dock anyway.
I get to see some killer boats come through there.

Just had a play with Open CPN, I got 140 miles from Columbia River mouth to Cape Flattery?

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

That is interesting because in mapquest form the middle of the Columbia river bar to just past Duntze rock is 158 nautical miles.

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

Sure Mapquest isn't set to statute miles instead of Nautical miles?

Re: Delivery -> sleigh ride

Columbia River Bar Buoy G3 to a point West of Tatoosh Light (104 T) is 134 NM while keeping the boat on the 30 fathom line.

Tatoosh Light on Tatoosh Island is 0.6 NM NNW of Cape Flattery and is as close to Cape Flattery as I've ever been in my 10 or so trips out there/around there.

160 NM from the G3 buoy on the River Bar on the way to Port Angles would put you NNE of Pillar Point 23 NM ESE of Neah Bay.

The cockpit enclosure makes perfect sense to me after many downwind trips in that body of water. It is cold at night in the middle of August and probably miserable in February.
