jimmyb116 is on a distinguished road
As a child 6-8 years old I cruised from Victoria BC Canada to Panama and beyond. My parents were experienced as was the boat, and we had done the outside of Vancouver island several times to the queen Charlot's.
But what I remember most was the Oregon coast, we got hammered for several days off Fort Bragg Mendocino, this in no place to be in bad weather.
There was a US coast Guard cutter that got severely damaged in the same storm. Good luck unfortunately i was to young to give you information but it left a lasting impression.
