Thanks

It appears no decision has been made on Squirrel Cove.

Welcome aboard!

We spent three and a half years cruising that area before we got tired of the cold and sailed back to Hawaii to thaw out

If you happen into the West Marine store in Gig Harbor, say "Hi" to Steve Essig from Chuck and Laura. We may be back in that neck of the woods late in 2012...

Or maybe not.

steve stark Thank you all for the warm words of welcome. Ray, I will look forward to that campfire. We waited out a fogbank at Hope Island this past August, what a beautiful spot. Must admit to a little nervousness, though, when anchored just east of the buoys watching the back eddies swirl around us!

erps We see quite a few boats out of Gig Harbor. That's a neat spot. Holler when you come through Skagit Bay again. We'll get a campfire going at Hope Island and we can swap anchor stories and heap abuse on power boaters. (from a man with almost 3000 hours on his motor)

Capnblu Welcome out of the, er closet....

Faster Welcome, Steve... Congrats on your new 'nonlurker' status!

Howdy from the PNW

Just a quick introduction and admission of guilt. I have to admit to having lurked in the background for several years and gleaned a great deal of useful direction from the community. I guess now is the time to come out of the hanging locker and profess thanks to those who frequent this forum with their advice and experience.

Barb and I keep a Hunter 340 in the Gig Harbor, WA. We started our sailing life about 10 years ago on the Columbia River and Oregon/Washington lakes with a trailerable pocket cruiser. After a few years of sourjourning north further and further, we took the plunge on a mid-sized 34' cruiser and are now pushing the limits of our explorations Northward on the Salish Sea. Living in Portland, OR and keeping the boat in Puget Sound presents its challenges in 'messing about' as often as we wish, and maintenance visits need to be a bit more carefully planned. On the upside, however, the far northern horizons and the great people we have met more than compensate for the moderately long drive.

For years, like many of you, I have dreamed of white sands and warm waters beckoning from points south and west in the Pacific. Maybe someday... but for the forseeable future, I am constantly amazed at the variety and breadth of what lies ahead of us as we push ever Northward. We've become fairly familiar with the South Sound, San Juans, Canadian Gulf Islands, and the Discovery Islands and Desolation Sound. The Broughton's beckon, as do Cape Caution, Cape Scott, the Great Bear Rainforest, and SE Alaska.

Thanks for listening, I hope I can return but a portion of what I have learned here from y'all and look forward to a little armchair sailing waiting for the thermometer to creep back above the 30's again (or the 0's for my friends to the North).

Fair winds,
