jrd22 Next to Seattle, Portland has the most boats for sale in the PNW. Pick up a copy of 48 Degrees North mag. at any West Marine or other boat store, lot's of listings. Good luck.

CharlieCobra I'm sure you can find someone up here for that.

dschield Thanks for the reply. I'm guessing there are plenty of people for hire to transport the boat from Seattle to a coastal harbor.

CharlieCobra Seattle for buying a boat. Where ya live for mooring it if you're wanting to go sailing in the Pacific. Anywhere North of ya puts you a looong way from the actual ocean.

Ocean sailing in the Pacific NW

Good afternoon,

I live in Portland, OR. I haven't sailed in the last 15 years but I'm finally ready to start again. The last time I sailed I crewed a Beneteau 38 from California to Tahiti. I want get a boat for a weekend hobby - relearn what I've forgotten and eventually gain more offshore experience. My question is, what is the best harbor closest to Portland? One with a good selection of boats for sale and that isn't too far of a drive, say compared to Port Townsend or Bellingham. I feel like I'm starting from scratch again, but my main goals are to sail down the coast to SF then across to Hawaii. That's a few years away.
