New member in the PNW

Hello all! Sending this from South Dakota as the early snows continue. My wife and I are about to become live-aboards in Blaine, WA and plan to explore the Inland Passage (maybe on to Alaska) for the next several years. We have purchased a Camargue 48 Aft Cabin twin diesel that is currently on the hard in La Conner, WA being re-fitted. We plan to arrive Blaine by mid-November. Looking for news, advice and sharing with boaters in the region or with pertinent info. We have been boating (both power and sail) for 30+ years! but know we have a lot to learn. Look forward to our discussions!

We lived in the Seattle/
Bellingham area for 8 yrs in the 80's so know what it can be like. Looking forward to becoming a "mossback" again.

Hello Still Waters, did you make the move to Blain? How is everything going for you?
