No idiot.... and I'm sure CB was just trying to be helpful... but to the uninitiated that stretch of coast has a horrendous reputation, esp outside the summer season.

Your stated desire to do some cruising/exploring seems to point to either a trailerable or to the idea of keeping a boat somewhat remote from where you live, but in a better cruising region like Puget Sound. Weekend cruising and quick overnighters are going to be less attractive or limited without actually moving up or down a coast that is known for bad weather and bar harbours.

Maybe you just need to try to get transferred to an area where your liveaboard/cruising dreams are more easily achieved!!
