45' Seas off Vancouver Island

A big low pressure storm off the west coast of Vancouver Island is producing some monstrous waves. The USCG has closed the Columbia bar because of dangerous conditions as well as some others. Wish I could get out to the coast to see this one, but I'm glad I'm not out in it

Kind of makes the whole 'coastal' vs 'blue water' sailing argument sound kind of silly.

Well, if you go out there and sail in it, you won't have to imagine it...

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.

Brian- I asked Laurie if we could take the boat out there so I could get some pictures for you. She just looked at me kinda funny and hasn't said anything to me since. Sorry, no pics.

Dude - that is seriously scary stuff. There's "big" - then there's 45'.
