Re: Sea Delivery from SFO to PNW how feasible?
If you must do this trip on a schedule, reconsider.
We used to sail out of Coos Bay, Oregon, and our boat is currently in Wrangell, Alaska. When we both worked, and had schedules to keep, we got into some nasty weather moving up and down the Oregon and Washington coasts. When we retired, and no longer had a schedule, it was much easier.
We have met a number of circumnavigators who said that the weather off the northwest coast was the worst of their entire voyage.
Given the time to wait for good weather windows, it can be pretty straightforward, though it is always cold.
