Quick Update

POLARIS, our brand new (used) 1979 Pearson 365 Ketch should have departed Olympia, WA yesterday or today enroute to us at Seward, Alaska!!!! ETA in Seward, weather permitting, is on or about the fourth of July.

Needless to say, we are chomping at the bit waiting to recieve her.

V/R

Dave

That's got to be an agonizing wait. Try to distract your mind by watching cartoons, eating lots of ice cream and playing with silly string. This method has worked for me in the past. Before you know it, your ship will have come in. In any event, good luck with the new boat!

You might try supplementing the ice cream with some pork spare ribs! Live high on the HAWG while you wait.

Good luck with her and congrats! Ketches rule!!

Engine overheating problems caused the delivery skipper to put in at Nanaimo, BC. Found BARNICALS growing in the heat exchanger. Right now they are cooking up bouillabaisse in a local radiator shop. Expectation is that the heat exchanger will be reinstalled this afternoon or (more likely) tomorrow morning.

Good news Dave!

We'll be vacating D25 this weekend.

Are you going to be able to meet him for the Gulf crossing?

No. He's got his son with him and doesn't want to take on 'passengers' without a certified life raft. I didn't push the issue, although I WAS a little dissapointed.

I've asked him to give us a revised ETA based on 1) the maintenance delay in B.C and 2) the ave. boatspeed he'll be able to maintain once the repairs are completed. We should have an idea within a couple of days, but I REALLY don't expect him until AFTER the fourth of July weekend.

BARNICALS!!!

Tip?

Assuming a safe and professional delivery, what would be a customary tip for the delivery skipper and his crew?

UPDATE: After a long summer coordinating the delivery of our new 1979 Pearson 365 Ketch, she is finally in her home slip in Seward, Alaska!

After our first delivery skipper quit on us after safely delivering POLARIS from Washington to Juneau, we worked with another skipper (and I'd be MORE than glad to give him a rousing recommendation if PM'd).

My wife and I, along with our delivery skipper, left Juneau, Alaska just over two weeks ago, dodged (sort of) two gales and arrived in Seward last Thursday at just about midnight.

The crossing of the Gulf was EVERYTHING we expected and one of the take-aways that we (my wife and I) have from our adventure is that our dream of sailing away when I retire is ABSOLUTELY do-able.

This is awesome. I can't believe Skipper #1 just quit? That's not cool.

I just recently visited Seward, it's a BEAUTIFUL place! So many sailboats in their slips though I didn't see many out on the water!
