I also just remembered, took me 4 yrs to put jack lines on my boat, and buy a safety tether! Most of us, generally speaking, are probably sailing in less than 15-20 knots of wind, generally speaking, reasonably protected waters. Some of the safety items are not always needed, like jack line, reefs depending upon you view of them being a safety or needed item for what ever reason.....

By the way PG, welcome to the water rats nest! of BFS! As you can tell, there is more than one way to skin a cat, tell a story, help you with what ails you. Hopefully those of us with the how too, vs the scolding, are helping, even the scolding ones are probably help full is some way shape or form. Not sure that SD is paid like Simon is to be negative tho!

Charlie,

where locally were you in less than 600' of water, much less only 400' of water?

Do you want a direct email for the fellow that is running the NW solo website? PM me.

Is this the day you took Oh Joy home? I was out that day too, not too bad off of edmonds, but still was moving pretty good with a 110 and reefed main that day! I recall hitting 7 plus down wind.

Now if you practiced good seamanship you would have 1000' of chain on board and at least 4 anchors.

According to the charts, that area is about 40' deep... anchoring would have been a pretty good option. If he had stopped before he got into the approach channel...there's plenty of areas he could have stopped at.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

I was thinking fathoms too, but assuming SD went to the google/noaa online charts, at least my local area is in feet. then again, puget sound may be different than in the LA area, where fathoms would make more sense. I could not find the LA area scale etc to tell. Puget sound was listed as feet. I am not seeing a fathom vs feet listing on the google/noaa chart for the LA area.

Bubb—

Sorry, my bad.. that's 15 fathoms... the other chart, when I zoomed in a bit further was marked in feet, but the one I have the screen shot of is in FATHOMS. Still, quite a few spots only 40 feet deep or so... which would be manageable to anchor in. And the shallow water habitat to the west of the channel just inside the break water is all 15-20' deep.
