Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

Thanks. After running out of propane for my heater and waking up grumpy the sun came out. ! Think it passed over to you. I could think about getting a liveaboard slip I. Shilshole and keeping it as a base. Ill call them Monday.

I'm not a rich fancy guy but PT is a little sleepy for me. I like the happy hustle and bustle of people going out and about to ther yachts and the feel of a lively happy place.

The paper here did day thus is the oldest county in the state with the average age 57 compared to 37 nationwide.

Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

Not positive, but I believe Edmonds has sm smaller slips that might be open. Not sure about liveaboard ability on some. I'm recalling that they limit how many at a given time. say no more than 20 with 2 per dock or something to that effect. It was raining for a bit about noon, as I was down trying to clean the boat up some. Have rc duty tomorrow, race's the next two weekends opening day the first weekend in may at seattle yacht club, where we are planning to decorate my boat for the parade. it can be busy down this way.

She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!

Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

The weather is pretty terrible right now, but this is still a beautiful part of the world to be in.

Somehow despite all of the rain I've been out sailing 3 times in the last week (Wednesday, Friday, Sunday). We were lucky and picked a 4 hour window yesterday with almost no rain and even saw a sliver of blue sky. I worked on my boat all morning and was glad for the diesel heater.

However I do recognize that it's a lot easier when I'm getting back into a warm house afterwords instead of using boat heat down below.

northoceanbeach: Let us know if you do end up moving to Seattle. It would be great to see the Ranger 23 and if you are still here in May I could probably get you out for a Duck Dodge on a friend's boat.

Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

I have waited Long enough that I have to either pay a months moorage today or move so I'm going to stay here. I'm still going to come by Seattle though. I should probably go to eugene and result anyways and drop off my bike. It's really not being used as much as I thought I would and that v berth looks pretty cozy.
Plus I can title the boat there an not have to pay sales tax so the trip will pay for itself. Also my passport arrived. I could just have it mailed but there are sme things i. could do.

I've been getting things done on the boat. It looked nice when I it it and it looks nicer now. The main reason I started this early is I was afraid that if I waited until summer all the boat would be sold. So no hurry.

Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

You might check maps of the Gulf Islands and see if the bike would be useful there.

In the San Juans the town is often not near the marinas. On Lopez it is a pleasant 15 minute walk from Fisherman's Bay to the center of town. You can dock in Friday Harbor. On Orcas the town is pretty far from the public marinas though. I haven't spent enough time in the Gulf Islands to get an idea there.

I like to bring a folding bike with me. They are pretty good for the types of rides that I'll do while sailing. On my Catalina 25 one would fit under the V-berth, on my Pearson a Brompton fits nicely on the shelf by the quarterberth/aft-cabin.

Re: I've become very concerned about the weather...

Thanks Alex. I got a folding bike today and I've been riding it in the sun (and 40mph) wind to the store and back, installing clutches and cleats. Which was a success.

Looks like the weather is going to be warmer at the end of April. Sure started out cold.
