115 lb "someone" and a motor half the weight of that someone.
Hummm. Yep. Glad I asked. The mental image of all that will carry me thru the rest of this week.

"They are smart little boats."

I have to agree. Fair to say, smarter than some owners?

....couldn't resist.

If I had known you were blonde, I would have tried to be more sensitive.

(Did she just blame it on the dog?)

Port'a boat good. (Thread anchor)

I am quickly becoming interested in the Porta Bote idea. The picture of it stowed on the forward lifelines really sold me. I will start checking those out immediately.

Thanks for the heads up. I'm planning to be back in the Puget Sound by early September so I think I should be OK. I've been watching and studying he weather patterns... it definitely gets rough but I've allowed plenty of time to hike, camp and explore while waiting for weather windows.

40 miles of open water that regularly dips below 20 feet at low tide does a lot of interesting and insane things.
