Skipper wanted Seattle to Portland

Need help getting my recently purchased Albin Vega 27 from Seattle to Portland. I'm a USCG licensed merchant mariner(3rd Mate AGT) but have very little experience under sail. Rather than have it transported by land I think it would be beneficial for myself to crew under an experienced captain. Or just someone who half way knows what they are doing and is crazy enough to come... Pay is negotiable.

Yep it would be. That's the reason I was asking what his timeframe was so it could be planned for a decient weather window right now isn't the best unless the boat is in top shape I would recommend waiting at least a month and a half.

Re: Skipper wanted Seattle to Portland

I'm in no major hurry, I'm mostly just weighing options and seeking advice. It's not tip top, the engine is temperamental and the last time I tried I wasn't able to get it going(although it was also below freezing). Temped to just put an outboard on it... It's currently at the Shishole bay guest moorage. I would like to at least get it out of there as I'm paying $25/day.

A few options I have considered:
A)Ship it to Portland from its current location.
B)Sail it down to Olympia and then ship it to Portland.
C)Sail it down the coast weather permitting.

Option A is certainly the easy way out but I would much rather get some experience. Option B and C would require getting the engine serviced and or putting an outboard on it

Re: Skipper wanted Seattle to Portland

I'd find cheaper moorage and wait a few months at least if plan C comes to being... (assuming the vessel is made fit for that passage in the meantime - and that probably means more than just being able to start the engine)

It's roughly 350nm rhumbline, the last 90 upriver to Portland so obviously the engine is going to be critical. Juan de Fuca can be tricky, and an outboard won't do much good in a big westerly.

Re: Skipper wanted Seattle to Portland

Rob, if you are ever in the neighborhood maybe you would be interested in stopping by and determining for yourself if the boat is fit for the voyage? I can't PM since I'm new to sailnet.

That wouldn't be a big issue for me however I would like to point you to the bremerton marina as a close location to move I lay about two hundred a month here and they have many slips available while we get you and your vessel ready for the trip down the coast I take it you live in Portland or at least that area. Shoot me an email at rnewby1@ hotmail and welcome to sailnet keep posting you will get there. Faster than you think

Re: Skipper wanted Seattle to Portland

Personally I'd just move it by truck. That is a challenging trip on which to learn your yacht.

You should be able to get a month to month spot in Shilshole. At this time of year they almost always have 30' slips available. It isn't as cheap as Bremerton (or Oak Harbor or Everett), but would be easy to move.
