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.
