Will do on the inflatable, altho most cruising plans have been put off. Need to go into skinny spending mode. Gotta hope the housing market turns back to normal at least sooner than later, or boat will have to go! Along with keeping Sheryl in business! not in BK court!

But any way.......Hope to see you out their next week. We had a few highs of 15-20 boats last summer on some of the wed nights. Do you have a race course guide? ie what courses the number are, where the marks are etc? I think I have an extra on my boat. Marianne/Skal across from you can probably get you one, the fleet cptn "Gay" on further down your dock on Excentric. Along with 3-4 other folks on yours and C dock. I tried doing my first race with out a guide, what a joke, but there were other issues for us not finishing, that is a good story over a beer!LOL

Yep, what marty says is basically a good surmise. You really need to tabulate what kind of cruising you want. Myself I went with the 38 Barberis as I was tired of not having amenities on my Catalina 27, and I had the old boat so decked out adding the amenities -she rode about 2 inches above spec'd waterline. Beyond the increase in fees (which I never really got hit with because I rented a 38 foot slip for my 27 footer), the major challenge is in the docking and handling the high freeboard during such. So, my new one is a balance of performance and comfort while cruising...

But there sure are a plethora of options out there... you'll know it when you see it. I don't do all the races as of yet - but do participate in the Thursday Night races at Elliott Bay. More than welcome to hitch a ride...

We keep our boat out at the Port Hadlock Marina, we'd be happy to show her off to anyone thinking of buying a similiar boat. We're there every weekend. Marty is right about the shower though, none in our boat, but for our price range we didn't see many boats with showers and those that did were in poor shape (because they were in our price range. ) So we'll be making due with a camp shower for now.

Thanks again, all, for the great info and the hospitality!

Being a typical grubby guy (!), I my initial thought would be that I could probably live without the shower, but the smarter half of me (my wife) would likely rectify that bad decision very quickly.

We've cruised the San Juans for two years now. We find that it's best for everybody to tie up to a dock every other day. We shower then, and don't use the shower on the boat much.

Generally, we, and the previous owner, use a Sun Shower sitting on the deck and dropped through a hatch into the head compartment.

Our boat has hot water, but only after being plugged into the dock or running the engine for a while.

It's nice to have, though.

But not a huge deal, I think. It's hard to work up a sweat when it's 60 degrees and raining!
