EXPRESS

British Columbia’s Coastal Craft has an evolutionary design philosophy, but their latest model, the 33 Express, has a radically new look. This month, Northwest Yachting visited the company’s factory to see how the new boat came together, what it’s like on the water, and what the company has in store for the future.

MIGHTY MINIS Miniboats may be small, but they pack quite a punch. Peter Marsh and Nate Sandel share the story of how these tiny boats travel the Pacific and bring people together. What started as a cultural exchange between kids in Oregon and Japan, is now a program with global reach.

We first spied the Coastal Craft 33 Express docked in Lake Union for the Seattle Boat Show. Her clean lines and luxurious nature immediately stood out. Bystanders came up to the boat and quizzically knocked on the hull. "It's aluminum?", they asked. Yes, it is! We went up to Gibsons, British Columbia, to discover more about this boat and spent a spectacular day on Howe Sound exploring her capabilities.

FROM THE HELM Let's Work Together

To g e t h e r we a r e facing unprecedented times, unlike anything we have ever seen before. Phrases like social distancing, flattening the curve, shelter in Schelleen Rathkopf place, and self-quarantine are becoming mainstream. We are left asking ourselves if there has ever been a time like this in modern history that could help us navigate this situation. The answer is a simple NO. It was just a few weeks ago that we at Northwest Yachting were preparing the April issue. The plan was to include a feature about the many Opening Day activities around the Sound, and an extensive summertime Rendezvous Guide. Then, Washington State’s Governor Jay Inslee announced school closures due to COVID-19. This was soon followed by a ban on events of 250 people in King, Snohomish and Pierce counties. That number soon dropped to 50 people and included the entire state. Within a couple more days, gatherings were limited to 10 people. Restaurants and retail businesses were ordered to close. Now, people are

asked to stay home unless it is absolutely necessary to go out. The bottom line is that we’re asked to stay away from others to prevent the spread of the globe’s invisible enemy- COVID-19. Like many of you, our plans have been significantly altered by this pandemic. So here we are. Though we may need to physically distance ourselves from each other for a while, now is not the time to pull our support away from each other. We need each other more than ever to keep our businesses afloat and to stay the course. When this virus is controlled, and life as we knew it in pre-coronavirus days returns, we will still be looking to the waterways to take us to our happy place. In the meantime, appreciate your loved ones. Share your experiences of past Opening Days. Watch your favorite boating movie. Take your vessel out for a spin. Grab a SUP board and go explore. And at the end of the day, settle in your favorite armchair and scroll through the April issue of Northwest Yachting in the privacy of your own home and be inspired or dream of your next boat. You’ll find no shortage of small or luxury yachts, sailboats, or fishing boats inside our pages. You will also enjoy the real-life story of the Mighty Minis, a more pleasant example

of how this world is interconnected. In this time of social distancing, it reminds us that people are coming together, despite the 5,000 miles of ocean that keeps them apart. You’ll also read about two sailors who recently bought the new J/99 and have named their boats One Life and Dash for reasons that are especially meaningful. Should the event bans lift, please also check out the 2020 Rendezvous Guide on our website. There are many exciting summer meet ups in the works and fingers crossed that these are not cancelled or postponed. People need people and it is most important to remember that we are all in this together. We are in unchartered territory, but we do know one thing; COVID-19 can’t stamp out our passion for the water and for now, we plan to continue with some temporary course adjustments. As Linda Ellis suggests in her poem, The Dash, (as seen on page 36) what matters most in life is not the day we’re born or the day we die, but rather the dash in between where we really live. If you love the water, boating is part of the dash, and the coronovirus can’t touch that.

New Dates for the Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show By Lisa Samuelson

The third annual Anacortes Boat & Yacht Show is coming back to Cap Sante Marina June 25 to June 28, 2020. Produced by the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA), which also produces the popular Seattle Boat Show, the event will feature more than 300 new and brokerage boats in water, on land, and at nearby boatyards, plus a 10,000-square-foot tent of accessories and service providers. It’s the perfect place for boaters to find the boat of their dreams or upgrade their existing boat and plan their boating activities for this year. Additionally, charming Anacortes with its historic buildings, fabulous shopping, art galleries, antique stores, breweries, restaurants, and miles of public trails and shoreline access is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Originally scheduled for May 14 to 17, the show was rescheduled because of coronavirus concerns. “The safety and well-being of our staff, members, exhibitors and attendees is our first and foremost priority,” said George Harris, President & CEO of the NMTA. “In light of this and the fluid and continuously changing COVID-19 situation, our Board of Trustees met, and we made the unanimous decision to reschedule the Anacortes show to June 25-June 28, 2020.” All tickets that were pre-purchased for the original event dates will be honored during the new dates. The event will also include many special features and some great promotions.

A New Captain For Adventuress By Schelleen Rathkopf

Sound Experience recently announced that Captain Nate Seward will be at the helm of the tall ship Adventuress. The Adventuress is a well-known sight locally with its majestic sails and wonderful educational platform. The mission of the historic schooner is to bring environmental awareness of Puget Sound to students both young and old. “Nate knows Adventuress better than nearly all of us,” said Sound Experience Executive Director Catherine Collins. “He’s volunteered on her as a Port Townsend teenager more than a decade ago and has sailed aboard her for eight seasons as an educator, deckhand, bosun, second mate and chief mate.” Seward’s passion for Continued on Page 22

Point Roberts Race Week to Award the Carr Trophy By Schelleen Rathkopf

In addition to hosting the Corsair Nationals and the International 6 Metre North Americans, Point Roberts Race Week has been chosen by the Pacific Coast Yachting Association to award the Jesse L. Carr Trophy. The coveted and storied trophy is given out annually for the outstanding race achievement of a captain and crew. Different regattas are selected each year as the site for awarding the trophy. This year, Point Roberts Race Week was chosen, which is quite an honor considering this is a new venue for the event for-

18 NORTHWEST YACHTING || APRIL 2020

merly known as Whidbey Island Race Week. The Pacific Coast Yachting Association’s decision came down to a few dominant factors. The well-regarded reputation of the new Principal Race Officer (PRO) John Abel from Victoria, British Columbia, was a big plus in the event’s favor. Additional factors included the caliber of Abel’s race committee team, the addition of course umpires, Race Week's longtime history in the Pacific Northwest, and the potential draw of One-Design fleets in the region. Due to its proximity

to Canada, Point Roberts offers a truly regional competition in the Pacific Northwest with boats participating from Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia. The Carr Trophy is a perpetual trophy with a long history in the western United States and Canada to recognize the values and virtues of the championship crew and the organizational ability and talent of the captain. "The Carr Regatta grew from the Pacific Coast Championship Regatta that began in 1923,” explains Larry Mayne, current Commodore of the Pacific Coast Yacht-

ing Association. “By 1958, there were so many fleets and venues involved, that the Jesse L. Carr Regatta was born. Since 1958, the venue for the regatta has rotated between the four Pacific Coast Yacht Associations districts." The four Pacific Coast Yacht Association districts include the Pacific Northwest (Oregon, Washington and British Columbia), Northern California (Point Conception to Oregon), Los Angeles (Point Conception to and including Newport Harbor) and San Diego (South of Newport Harbor). "Over the years," Mayne continues, "the Pacific Northwest District sailors have hosted and won the Carr in 1960, 1964, 1975, 1976, 1986, 1999, and so on. The One-Design fleets have ranged in size from 18' to well over 50' and with crews of two to twenty. The Jesse L. Carr Regatta is conducted in conjunction with a carefully chosen sailing regatta and is intended to recognize the achievement of a sailing crew, participating in a One-Design portion of a larger regatta." Now in its 37th year, Point Roberts Race Week, formerly Whidbey Island Race Week, is a five-day sailboat racing regatta happening July 13-17, 2020 in Point Roberts, Washington. The regatta is open to One-Design and PHRF fleets ranging in size from 19’ to 84’.

In an effort to make the scrapping of old ships more economical and less harmful to the environment, the United States Navy has partnered with DLA Disposition Services in Bremerton to provide removal services that are expected to save millions of Department of Defense dollars in the future. "For the last 30 years, Bremerton’s Puget Sound Naval Shipyard & Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF) has deconstructed eight nuclear surface ships and more than 120 nuclear submarines, resulting in an average production of 16 million pounds of scrap every year," said Thomas McPike, an assistant project superintendent at the shipyard. With help from DLA, the new partnership will greatly reduce costs by working with commercial scrap vendors from around the globe. The man hours, equipment, and training necessary for the Navy to meet stringent demilitarization regulations will be minimized with DLA’s joint effort. By outsourcing the work to DLA, the naval shipyard can focus on upgrading and maintaining the active Navy fleet, rather than the labor-intensive process of scrapping decommissioned vessels. "The average submarine recycling effort can take up to a year to complete, typically involving the cutting of vessels into salvageable pieces, costing at least $3.3 million per barge to complete," McPike said. In addition, the shipyard is no longer allowed to

use propylene or acetylene to do the deconstruction work without capturing the harmful smoke created from the torches. The DLA contract initially calls for barge transport of about 9 million pounds of nuclear submarine pieces and shipyard facilities scrap to a firm in Tacoma. If the contractor, shipyard, and DLA agree that the performance level has met expectations, there are options for adding years of continuing support.

“We’re cautiously optimistic that this is going to go flawlessly,” said DLA Disposition Services director Mike Cannon, who traveled to the shipyard in February to observe the scrap generation process.

26th Annual Leukemia Cup Regatta By Evin Moore

The Leukemia Cup Regatta is returning to Elliott Bay Marina on June 6, making this the 26th year in a row boaters have come together for a great day of racing and to raise money for the fight against leukemia and other blood cancers.

Once they’ve formed a team, racers gather donations from family, friends, and co-workers in a competition to raise the most money. The donations go to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS), the world’s largest non-profit health organization

focused on blood cancer research and providing support for patients and their families. This support includes educational and emotional support programs, plus financial aid to cover the cost of insurance and travel costs associated with treatment.

The Seattle-based chapter of the LLS provides services for both Washington and Alaska. Charity regattas are a great way to give back while also getting out on the water. It’s because of fundraisers like the Leukemia Cup Regatta that the LLS has helped advance 46 of the 53 blood cancer treatment options approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 2017. The LLS and Elliott Bay Marina look forward to welcoming all participants. To find out more and register for the regatta, head to leukemiacup.org/events

education and maritime led him to his new role as Captain after many aquatic adventures. He’s worked at Hurricane Island Outward Bound School, Center for Wooden Boats, Northwest Maritime Center, and the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater, and has also spent time as crew of the Oliver Hazard Perry. Most recently, he was managing schooners for the Portland Schooner Company in Portland, Maine. “With over a decade of experience, Nate is a uniquely talented mariner, a deeply knowledgeable rigger, and a natural leader,” wrote a shipmate about Nate’s qualifications for this position. “He knows this particular vessel from stem to stern and he is a curator of her enduring culture, the same culture that brings crew back season after season. We hope he will continue to have the opportunity to train new crews in the capacity of Captain.” Seward is looking forward to his first sailing season as captain of Adventuress this spring. “Sound Experience helped me discover my love of teaching," Seward says, "And I look forward to seeing where I can take it in this new role.”

COVID-19 Roils Fishing Industry By Randy Woods

All trademarks mentioned are owned by, or licensed to, the AkzoNobel group of companies. © AkzoNobel 2019.

Since the novel coronavirus emerged from China in late 2019, it has sparked a disease dubbed COVID-19 that is extremely contagious. COVID-19 is spreading around the globe like wildfire, taxing the healthcare systems of many

10391/1219

24 NORTHWEST YACHTING || APRIL 2020

countries, and killing people with compromised immune systems. The pandemic has even reached the Alaskan fishing industry, setting off alarm bells in the Alaska fishing industry not heard since the 2008 financial crisis.

Many fishing vessels that ply Alaskan waters are facing restrictions from entering Chinese ports and fresh seafood catches are currently languishing in cold-storage units. Other fishing boats are either stuck at docks, waiting for

crews to return to work, or idling in “floating quarantine zones” until the workers can be tested and declared free of the virus. Under this extended period of limbo, U.S. seafood exports to China, worth about $1 billion per year, are being threatened by the crisis. China, the numberone trade partner for the ports of Seattle and Tacoma, typically exports containers full of goods, such as clothing, toys and electronics. The containers return to China laden with Alaskan seafood and other U.S. products. Since COVID-19’s arrival, however, this flow has slowed to a trickle. Testing for the virus was ongoing in Alaska as of early March, and in Washington state, the disease’s toll was mounting with cases climbing over 2500 and deaths nearing 150. The


novel coronavirus, which can trigger acute respiratory failure in humans, has an incubation period of up to two weeks. Many parts of the world basically shut down in an attempt to halt the disease’s progress. One of the first economic fishing casualties of 2020 was the cancellation of Seafood Expo North America, set to take place March 15-17 in Boston. After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19 and evaluating the full spectrum of feedback, Diversified Communications, the show’s coordinator, decided to halt the 40th edition of the conference. This decision was soon followed by Diversified’s postponement of the Seafood Expo Global in Brussels, scheduled for April 21-23. The fishing industry

has joined the rest of the world in postponing or cancelling conferences, events, and gatherings. The Bristol Bay Regional Seafood Development Association (BBRSDA) has been following the outbreak for several months and has particularly shown an interest in Alaska’s sockeye salmon market. “At this point there are many unknowns,” read a recent statement from BBRSDA, “but in general it is disrupting industry supply chains and, as such, is generally a negative factor for markets.” The group also noted that an increasing amount of farmed salmon has been diverted away from Asia into other markets, such as the United States, which has put downward pressure on farmed salmon prices. At the same time, canned goods and frozen salmon may be seeing an

uptick in buying as people stock up for the worst of the outbreak. “BBRSDA will continue to monitor the situation moving forward,” the statement continued. “Depending on the length and severity of the crisis, there is a potential for the virus to affect staffing in processing plants. We

Geoducks, also big in Washington, can't be frozen for transit.

will post more information as it becomes available.” One of the most vulnerable sectors of the Alaskan and Pacific Northwest fisheries industry has been geoducks, the two-foot-long bivalves considered a delicacy in Chinese markets. According to the Southeast Alaska Dive Fisheries Association, 95% of the elongated clams harvested in the region are sold in China, but this year demand has plummeted in the wake of the coronavirus. Adding to the trouble is that geoducks are considered a “live market” species, so none of them can be frozen or canned for use later when demand may rise again. With the collapse of the Chinese market, prices have fallen from $5-$10 per pound to just $1 per pound today.

Zeasman-Gibbon for NMTA Board of Trustees By Schelleen Rathkopf

Northwest Yachting Publisher Michelle Zeasman-Gibbon announced her intention to run for a seat on the Board of Trustees for The Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA). The mission of the NMTA is to promote the recreational boating industry in the Michelle Pacific NorthZeasman-Gibbon west, and as a longtime recreational boater in the region, Michelle is a perfect fit. “I have a lot of marine industry experience, and I’m looking forward to the possibility of having a woman on the Board of Trustees,” Zeasman shares. “As the publisher and owner of the region’s largest boating magazine, I have a lot of resources to bring to the table that will have a positive impact on NMTA members.” There are three open positions on the NMTA Board of Trustees, and currently there are no women on the board. The NMTA Trustee Nominating Committee will select six names to appear on the ballot that will be sent out electronically to all members on May 1. Members will have until June 5 to vote, and they’re encouraged to vote for the candidate who can best serve the Pacific Northwest marine industry. The results will be announced in June, and new Board members will take office on July 1st. The NMTA is the nation’s largest regional marine association and represents more than 700 companies in the recreational boating industry, including boat dealers, boat brokers, marinas, boatyards, manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers. The NMTA produces the Seattle Boat Show, the West Coast’s largest boat show.

Seattle-based Crow’s Nest Yachts has opened a new office in Bellingham, Washington. With offices servicing San Diego and Newport Beach in California, and Seattle and Anacortes in Washington, this expansion is good news for boaters in north Puget Sound. Consistent with Crow’s Nest Yachts commitment to providing expert service to their customers, the new office will be staffed with four experienced brokers, including Curt Bagley, David Bagley, Gary Ramburg, and Jerry Koch. Curt Bagley entered the boat business in 1978 with a career spanning 42 years in the industry. An active member in the community, Bagley has worked for several dealerships including Olympic Boat Centers. Following in his father’s footsteps, David Bagley started selling boats in 2010, and will soon be a 10-year veteran. Gary Ramberg comes with over 40 years of sales experience and is the previous owner of Diamond Yacht Sales of Blaine. After a brief stint in retirement, Ramberg missed the industry and is looking forward to his new post. Ramberg’s expertise lies in his knowledge of mechanical and electrical systems. After living in California for 20 years, Jerry Koch is happy to be back in the Pacific Northwest. Koch got his start in the business at Olympic Boat Centers in Vancouver BC, and specializes in power boats from 30’ to 125’. With the addition of the Bellingham office, Crow’s Nest Yachts has grown to 4 offices with 17 brokers. Since 1974, Crow’s Nest has been helping owners get matched up with the perfect yacht; from small to high performance yachts and fishing yachts to oceancrossing yachts. Whether it’s buying or selling, the marine experts at Crow’s Nest Yachts have this region covered. For more information, visit crowsnestyachts.com.

Words That Work

Dear Northwest Yachting, I’m confused! Peter Schrappen does a great job at keeping us up to speed on maritime legal and legislative issues, but the March column has me scratching my head. In the On Watch column titled "Words That Work," he addresses the issue of the ban on copper bottom paint. In paragraph 2, he writes, "No ban (on copper paint) without a plan." But in the next paragraph, he cites the phrase that "carried the day" as, "Why are we banning a product with a safer alternative in place?" I'm as confused as a newborn baby in a topless bar. Did he mean, "Why are we banning a product without a safer product in place?" Great magazine that keeps those of us beyond the smell of salt water in touch with boating. Keep up the great work! Dave Elliott, Bozeman, Montana Dear Dave, thank you for reading and holding me accountable. You are 100% correct. "Why are we banning a product without a safer alternative in place?" is the real question, worded correctly. And here’s an update for you: They agreed with us! All my best and keep Bozeman beautiful.

Dear Northwest Yachting Transducer Specialist, I’m looking into bedding a forward object detection transducer in my hull for protection from floating debris and wanted to ask for some advice. Is it reasonable to presume a Garmin Panoptix PS31 or PS51, which operates best below 8 knots, could be epoxied into the bow bilge of a 20' Cuddy (at a location below the water line and at forward angle that considers bow rise at and below 8 knots)? Also, do you know if any similar installations have been attempted and if so, has the performance been measured? I reached out to Garmin support, who suggested I’d be happier with Livescope on a stick. Can a LVS12 or LVS32 be installed bedded in epoxy inside the bow bilge? Pete, a Die-Hard DIY Dear Pete, A forward-looking sonar transducer definitely needs to be installed with a through-hull transducer or on a stick. The transducer needs to be in the water and looking straight forward. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to mount the transducer in the inside of the hull and glue it with epoxy. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance. Jeff Cote, Pacific Yacht Systems

Portland Shipbuilding Company History

Your Pacific Northwest Source for White Glove Service in Marine and Recreational Finance

Dear Schelleen, It was nice talking to you at the Seattle Boat Show regarding the August issue of Northwest Yachting that included the article regarding my great grandfather, grandfather, and my father' s business, Portland Shipbuilding Company, in Portland Oregon. When I was a kid, I remember being at the shipyard and talking to many of the men that were pictured in the piece. However, one fact was omitted from the article. My Dad, also named Charles M. Nelson, was the foreman for many years and worked side by side with my grandfather during the last 25 years the company was in business. I was surprised that Larry Barber, a personal friend of my Dad’s and who I also knew back in the ‘50s, didn't mention that fact. Anyway, thanks again for a great article. Gary Nelson

J/99 The J/99 short-handed, offshore monohull speedster is the new kid in town and catching the attention of sailboat racers and cruisers alike. The racing yacht is designed by Alan Johnstone and built by J/Boats, which started production in 2019 out of their Rhode Island facility. The newest addition to the J/Sport line, she is crew-friendly and offshore-capable, combining comfortable interior accommodations with the tillerdriven responsiveness of a sport boat. The interior features twin aft cabins, a proper sit-down forward facing nav station, an Lshaped galley, and a private forward head with sail locker. “The J/99 opens up a wide range of sailing possibilities,” commented designer Alan Johnstone. “ The versatile sail plan, balanced hull form, and efficient cockpit will work as well for short-handed offshore sailing as for weekend sailing with friends. The J/99

packs a lot of performance and versatility into a manageable size and budget.” Those who visited the Seattle Boat Show this past January may have spotted David Miller’s J/99 One Life featured in the Sail Northwest space. She was hard to miss with her hull’s striking custom design of bright swirling black and blue lines. I caught up with David Miller, and Ken Machtley, another new J/99 owner, to hear what they had to say about the new racy sailboat. “Over the last couple of years, I fell in love with racing, single-handing, and cruising Puget Sound,” explains David Miller. “The J/99 is a race boat capable of being raced with just one person or a full crew. It’s also comfy enough down below with headroom and berths to cruise. I’d been looking at similar-sized boats from X-yachts, Elan, J/105s and J/109s. Then J/Boats sent out the design brief for the J/99 two years ago, and I pretty much fell in love at first sight.” Ken Machtley, who many in the sailing community may know as the skipper of J/33 Dash, just purchased the new J/99 with his partner Stephanie Arnold. His boat is in production and expected to be delivered in early summer. “The size is good for our experience level and ambitions,” he shares. “The J/88 was too small, and the J/111 was larger than what we needed. We have the Martin 242 for buoy racing. The J/99 will be

for double-handed races, plus crewed races we wouldn’t otherwise do on the Martin 242, like Round-the-County.” One benefit of the J/99, in Machtley’s view, is the aluminum mast that may help keep maintenance and insurance costs down. “The non-overlapping headsail will make for easier tacks,” he explains, “and the headsail furler will make for much easier sail transitions. He also likes the cleaner cockpit, with no traveler to step over, and where lines are easier to manage. They’ve also added a refrigerator to their new J/99 because cold beer is a good thing! In terms of racing options, David Miller was drawn to the sturdy autopilot and the specially designed mast with an option that frees him from fooling with boltropes. “I like the versatile sail plan and the water ballast was also a huge draw. For me, it’s all about its ability to allow me to choose crew —regardless of gender, age, and mobility—for their sailing expertise and not their mass. Hopefully, we’ll have the bugs worked out by the time Ken’s boat gets here!” The big question on many racers’ minds is whether the J/99 will be the next One Design sweetheart in the Pacific Northwest. Currently, Machtley knows of three J/99s sold in our area. His boat, when delivered this summer, will primarily sail in the Bellingham and Orcas Island area. Miller’s

So far, Machtley is unaware of any One Design rules being formed. If the popularity of the J/99 grows as racers look for a boat they can both race competitively and cruise comfortably, this may all change. Both Miller and Machtley purchased their new J/99s from Bob Ross and Ben Braden of Sail Northwest in Seattle and both had positive experiences. “I’m relatively new to sailing,” Miller explains, “and my first sail was just six years ago. In navigating the purchase of One Life, Bob and Ben were rocks that I leaned on heavily. They’ve been fabulous to work with, as has everyone in this process.” “Prism Graphics brought what I had in my head for her hull art to life and I’m just thrilled how she looks. Josh Butler at Doyle Sails Seattle has been hugely helpful, and he will continue to be as we trailblaze J/99 sail and rig setup here in the Pacific Northwest’s light winds. CSR has also been amazing. Everyone at CSR truly treated One Life like their own boat and it shows inside and out.” CSR

One Life sails will fly in Seattle and the third J/99 was purchased by a skipper in Olympia. “There’s a lot of excitement around the new 2024 Olympics double-handed offshore event happening in Paris,” Machtley adds, “and a growing interest in double-handed racing in the region.” Miller agrees about the growing interest in the 2024 Olympics and double-handed sailing events in general. “Double-hand racing is growing pretty much everywhere but on the West Coast, but I expect the J/99 to be a big player here.” Miller’s hope is that race organizers will incorporate double-handed races into the 2021 racing season plans. For scoring, the double-handers could race in their regular PHRF class, but also have a virtual class where all these competitors could also be scored together. “This is a little easier with condition adjusted rating systems, but I think all of us are laid back enough locally that we can adapt,” he says with a grin, “and yes, One Life is already registered for Point Roberts Race Week and is looking forward to it!”

Ocean Alexander 90R dows, guests will be bathed in natural light and gifted with spectacular views. Though the 90R includes separate crew quarters, the yacht is designed to be owner operated. A Glendinning handheld remote control is just one of the many special features that makes her so user friendly. With a 35-foot cable attached, it gives boat operators total control of both transmission and throttle from either side of the boat. The portable control station puts the same operational features of the 90R’s fixed control station in the boat operator’s hands, which makes for easier docking and maneuvering – especially in tight spots. The helm, located in the enclosed bridge deck, is a skipper’s dream with fully functioning touch screens and the latest aeronautical-inspired technology to make travel on the 90R safe, efficient, and as easy as possible. The Octoplex system, which

gives easy monitoring and control of all the electrical systems on board, was originally designed for the aerospace industry and other “zero failure tolerant” environments. Check out the March issue of Northwest Yachting for the full feature about the 90R and find out why she is stealing the hearts of all who meet her.

Pack It Up Yeti Panga Pack Dry bags often sacrifice usability and convenience for their waterproof status. Heavy materials and complicated ways of closing the bag will keep the water out, but also prevent easy access to your gear. The Panga Pack from Yeti is a waterproof bag with a backpack design that is simple and easy to open. The backpack is constructed from a high-density nylon and thermo-

plastic urethane, making it resistant to falls, punctures, and abrasions even though it weighs just four pounds when empty. Ergonomic shoulder straps provide comfort, while the removable webbing chest strap and hip belt provide support while you walk or hike. Interior sleeves and mesh pouches provide partitioning to keep your items secure when you’re on the

Unstuck from the Muck AnchorRescue II There are plenty of things your anchor can snag on underwater, from thick vegetation to sunken chains and cables. Getting an anchor unstuck in a situation like that can be nearly impossible and ruin a day of boating. AnchorRescue II, an anchor recovery device from Scanmar International, just might be able to help in such a situation. The system integrates with the existing anchor system on board and uses just three pieces. A metal slider is placed on the main anchor chain, and a small tether chain is attached to the crown of the anchor on one end and the slider on the other end. When the anchor is functioning normally, these pieces rest and don’t affect the anchor in any way. When the anchor becomes snagged on

an object, a third piece of the AnchorRescue II travels down the main chain and attaches to the metal slider. This collar pulls on the slider, which in turns pulls on the tether chain, changing the angle of the anchor and easing extraction from the obstruction. An upgrade on the previous model, the AnchorRescue II can be attached to any anchor chain ranging from 1/4” to 3/8”. It can attach to just about any boat’s anchor and can even be transferred to different boats. Anyone who’s broken an anchor system knows how frustrating it can be, especially in remote locations. Avoid this headache and visit scanmarinternational.com to check out the AnchorRescue II, selling for $289.

move. Two rows of loops provide plenty of options to attach gear and equipment with carabiners or strapping the bag down to SUPs and kayaks. To get your hands on a backpack that stands up to any wet condition you throw at it and protects your valuables, visit yeti.com. Panga packs sell for $299.

BluHorizon Binoculars When you’re at the helm, you’ll spend plenty of time behind a pair of binoculars, making sure nothing on the horizon is sneaking up on you. Why not use a pair of binoculars that are comfortable and don’t strain your eyes? The BluHorizon Binoculars from Steiner can help keep your eyes comfortable with their AutoBright technology, which reacts to sunlight and reduces glare and bright spots. The binoculars automatically change the light transmission of the lenses for clarity whether you are viewing water, snow, sand, or ice. The lenses use the same principles as eyeglasses that are photosensitive and adjust brightness based on sunlight levels. The body of the binoculars are protected by a textured rubber armor that leaves it rainproof and resistant to dust and sand. Soft, foldable rubber cups protect eyes from sidelight, wind, and grit, providing a clearer view. The BluHorizons are available in either an 8x or 10x magnification and the body mea-

If you’re in the market for a compact pair of binoculars that are comfortable and reduce glare on the water, check out the BluHorizons on steiner-optics.com. Starting at $225.

When something breaks on your boat, you’ll likely need something a little bit stronger than duct tape. The quick drying adhesive SikaForce 315 from Sika Marine can be applied to plastic parts and/or metal components for repair and will dry in just a few minutes. SikaForce is a polyurethane adhesive packaged in a 25-ml syringe-style cartridge that allows for easy dispensing by hand, eliminating the need for an applicator gun. The glue can be applied to a wide range of substrates with minimal surface preparation. While some other similar products require hand-mixing, SikaForce 315 is packaged with three static mixers to ensure a proper homogenous mix. Head over to usa.sika.com to pick up a bottle of adhesive for unexpected repairs. SikaForce sells for about $30.

Jackery 500 Portable Power Station Getting away from it all can be great, but we sometimes forget that “all” includes a reliable power source. Camping can be made far more enjoyable with just enough power to keep your GPS, phone, flashlights, or electric fans charged. The Jackery 500 has enough juice to charge just about any handheld electronics and can even power small appliances or CPAP machines. The Jackery 500 is a 518Wh Lithium portable power station and is equipped with a USB charging port, a 12V DC car port, and a standard AC outlet. With that much power, the generator can recharge an iPhone an average of 50 times, a laptop seven times, and a GoPro camera 90 plus times. Compared to gas generators, electric generators are much quieter, give off no fumes, and are safer because they do not expel carbon monoxide gas. The Jackery 500 can be recharged using the AC

boats

or DC outlet or with a compatible solar panel. The solar panels from Jackery are optimized for use with the power station, and can provide constant energy in sunny conditions. Weighing in at just 13 pounds, the generator is small enough to travel anywhere. Besides camping, the Jackery 500 can also serve as an emergency back-up generator for small appliances in your boat. If you’d like a compact way to recharge your gear when your away from the wall outlets, check out the Jackery 500 on jackery.com. Units sell for $500.

The OLAS Guardian from ACR pulls double duty as both a man overboard alarm and a wireless kill switch. The Guardian unit attaches to your engine and creates a wireless connection with up to 15 wireless OLAS transmitters, which are worn by your family, crew, and even pets. If there is a crew overboard situation, these transmitters can cut off the engine within two seconds and sound the alarm on the Guardian unit. The engine restarts after five seconds, allowing crew still on board to quickly perform rescue maneuvers. Transmitters detect if the wearer is in water or a distance from the boat, giving wearers two layers of security. The kill switch works on any power boat, motorboat, or RIB, and gives skippers the confidence that no crew overboard situation will go unnoticed. The Guardian can connect with the ACR OLAS

app, which provides a clear map showing the direction of the crew member in the water and provide suggestions for Mayday calls. The OLAS app allows for customized names for each transmitter, selects which devices can cause an engine cut-off, monitors the battery levels of transmitters, and more. Wireless function eliminates the need to constantly detach and reattach physical kill switches when you move around on board. The OLAS Guardian can be used alongside an existing kill cord switch and will still operate if the physical kill cord has not been attached to the pilot. The OLAS Guardian has a range that makes it ideal for boats under 50 feet, although there is an extender unit that increases the range to 80 feet. If you are looking for additional safety equipment to increase your peace of mind on the water, check out acrartex.com. Units sell for $250.

Digital Delivery Podcast Preview // Litzenbergers’ Sailing Podcast The Litzenbergers’ Sailing Podcast is hosted by Breena and Spencer Litzenberger, a sailing couple who have been sailing since they were in their twenties. Over the years, they have owned seven sailboats, using the boat for a season or two and then selling it at the end of the year before purchasing the next one. They have owned a Tartan 43c, a Searunner 37, a Westerly Windrush 25, a 33' Bruce Roberts Spray Design, and a 30’ Irwin Citation. This style of boating

has given them a wide range of experiences on different boats and coasts, and they bring all this experience to their listeners. Topics include hacks for making onboard living more comfortable, sailing with family, DIY projects, boating security, and much more. The Litzenbergers’ record their podcast aboard their Rumba 41 Tarka, which they describe as their dreamboat. To check out the podcast, head over to thelitzenbergers.com and start listening.

Even as the weather slowly shows signs of warming, the waters we cruise on will remain cold for most of the year, usually hovering between 40°F (4°C) and 55°F (13°C). While these temperatures may seem innocuous when we dip a toe in, the low temperature can add an extra layer of danger to a man overboard situation. In an effort to build an understanding of the effects of cold water on the body and reduce the number of cold water accidents every year, a team of information technology professionals have created the Cold Water Survival Time Calculator. The calculator uses data gathered by medical researchers and calculates the likely time someone would survive in cold water based on the temperature of the water. Simply enter a water temperature, and the calculator will give an estimation of how long the average person would survive. To check out the calculator, head to goodcalculators.com. The calculator will work on most laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

One of the best things about owning a boat is all the exploring you can do, and the expanded range of parks and public lands that boaters can access. Before your next boating trip, check out the information on thousands of parks in the U.S. with the Oh Ranger! Park Finder app. This app lets users search for parks based on location or what activity they are looking to do. Oh Ranger! has information on nearly every piece of public land in the U.S. including national parks, national forests, wildlife refuges, and state and local parks. Activities listed include bird watching, fishing, camping, boating, water sports, hunting, hiking, and bicycling. Maps of the parks, park overviews, lodging information, events, important phone numbers, seasonal weather conditions, and nearby attractions are also included for users. When you’re thinking about taking a trip on the boat this summer, be sure to check out everything that public parks have to offer on the Oh Ranger! app. Available free on iOS and Android.

The KnowWake app is a handy resource for nearly every waterfront location in the U.S., Canada, and the Caribbean, with both saltwater and fresh water sites covered. The app presents the locations of restaurants, marinas, dive areas, snorkel areas, boat ramps, fuel docks, and raft-ups. A no-wake map uses a green, yellow, and red map to make confusing local wake regulations crystal clear. Areas marked in orange on the map are approved for high speeds and water sports. Everyone in the KnowWake community contributes information to the app, increasing the amount of locations available and accuracy of the maps. An augmented reality feature allows you to view the app through your camera and see the icons and map features right in front of you. An SOS feature can be used to alert others of an emergency on the water or to lend a helping hand yourself. Download the KnowWake app free for iOS or Android, and maybe you’ll discover a few hidden on-the-water gems.

Boating with Missy By Melissa Gervais

The World Needs More Phil Collins There is nothing better than relaxing in a lounge chair on the back deck with the sun hitting your eyelids. The only interruption is the odd cry of a gull or the splash of a seal. A boater’s happy place. That is until you hear: “Are you sleeping?” Trick question. You’ve heard this voice before, and the conversation never ends quickly. She is a talker and has just learned that the Royals have moved to the Gulf Islands and wants to know if this is true. Her sister’s best friend posted something on Facebook or Instagram, and she can’t believe it. “Have you heard? Do you know anyone in North Saanich? How long would it take to get there by boat?” Are you kidding me? I work hard all week, and my weekends are sacred to me. It is my one chance to chill and not think about anything. So what do I do? Keep my eyes closed and hope she moves along? Not a chance. I invite her onboard, pour two glasses of wine, and listen to the whole secondhand scandal. Sometimes there is no way out. Or is there? Can you tell someone, politely, to get out of your sunbeam? I find it ironic that boating covers the entire social spectrum from anti-social loner to over-the-top floating party, where you can’t get enough people on board. It is both an individual and a team sport. A few summers ago, I spent most weekends at the high-end of the party Richter scale. I decided to take a weekend off and anchor in a secluded bay with a stack of magazines, the new Palm Bay strawberry grapefruit mimosa, and a jumbo bag of Miss Vickie’s. I was midway into Anna Wintour’s take on the summer frolic gown when I hear— “Missy? Everything OK?” Again, are you kidding me? I like to poke fun at some of the characters I have met on my seagoing travels. A few need to wear a shirt more often or get a pedicure. A few more need to listen just once

T

or google appropriate humor. They are entertaining, to say the least. But on the flip side, I have met some of the most incredible people who have become good friends. We don’t have to see each other often, but when we do, we pick up right where we left off. One of the outstations that I visit regularly has a group of communal picnic tables. If you are feeling social, pull up a seat. I was taking my dog to the beach and saw a couple who I didn’t recognize, but they landed firmly on my fun-radar. I stopped and introduced myself; they were relatively new members of the club and hadn’t met many people. They offered me a glass of bubbles, and we chatted back and forth like we had known each other for years. The dog missed his walk and I met some lifelong friends. Sometimes it seems so random, but that is the thing about boating—we already have a lot in common. After many fun summers, they moved away for a job opportunity on a tropical island, but we stayed in touch. One day out of the blue, they called and said, “Why don’t you come and visit?” Initially, I didn’t hesistate about the visit, but then I paused. I had never met their kids, been to their house, or even seen them in street clothes. The only thing we shared was sunny afternoons on the boat. At the end of the day, that was enough, and I went to the Bahamas. I am grateful for every day I have on the water and all of the people I meet. However, there are some days that boating, like life, presents people, situations, or conversations that don’t inspire. We live in a polite society so we don’t display annoyance, besides you have no idea what other people are going through or have endured. Sometimes, it is not about you. And sometimes, you are the first smile of their day. Share your sunbeam. Back to my sunny but interrupted repose that day on the back deck. Once the Royals’ change of address was confirmed and my unannounced guest left, I returned to my lounger and solitude when this familiar song came on the radio: Tell everybody I’m on my way New friends and new places to see With blue skies ahead yes I’m on my way And there’s nowhere else that I’d rather be -Phil Collins “On My Way”

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

Frequently Asked (Political) Questions Have you noticed that on just about every website, there’s a section of frequently asked questions (FAQ) to help you even before you need help? Instead of a tick-tock chronology, or the highlights and lowlights or a blowby-blow debrief of the most recent legislative session, I thought I’d share some of the more common questions that have come over my transom.

At last, boaters have a safeguard in place to alleviate the worry of having to go copper free. Another win for boaters had to with the Derelict Vessel Removal Program (DVRP). With the change in the law (SB 6528), there will be a pilot boat recycling program and an adjustment in the length of boats needing insurance. Now boats 35 feet or longer are required to have insurance, previously the minimum was 65 feet.

Why would anyone run for the state legislature?

What’s next between now and election day?

They certainly don’t do it for the money. Washington state senators make $52,766 and state representatives bring home $48,731. I accept the premise that as a group, they want to leave our state better than they found it. While I don’t agree with how they always go about solving our state’s woes, I do find it easier to give lawmakers the benefit of the doubt. It’s what author Brene Brown talks about in Daring Greatly -“the assumption of positive intent.”

When it comes to state legislative boating advocacy, now is the time when the lion’s share of the work gets done. After catching their breath, lawmakers head home and are willing to meet and visit boating businesses to learn more about our agenda. These first-hand experiences with decision makers make it easier to stand out from the crowd of interests in Olympia. With 3,674 bills introduced these past two years (aka “a biennium”), it’s too easy to get lost in the shuffle. As my friend Rick Gladych taught me, “It’s not who you know, but who knows you.”

H

How can I find out who represents me? That’s an easy one. Play around with www.leg.wa.gov and the “find your legislator” tab or drop me a line and I can help you: Peter@nmta.net Why is there so much money in politics and where does that money go? Ah, a two-parter. They say that money is the mother’s milk of politics. As you know, advertising and marketing campaigns are expensive. That’s essentially what a political campaign is: Selling oneself to the middle part of the voters’ bell curve. Television ads aren’t free. Mail pieces do not receive complimentary postage at the post office. As to where the money goes, keep in mind that over 90 percent of incumbents win re-election. This occurs for a variety of reasons, not least of which is that these candidates have more money than their opponents. If you donate to a safe incumbent in the state legislature, that money does not stay in that race. It is transferred to the entire caucus leadership. The party leaders then divvy up the money into swing districts and challengers. The more money an incumbent can transfer (technically, it’s called surplussing), the more influence the well-heeled incumbent has in the caucus. How did the last session go for boaters? You want some sunshine? I’m pleased to report that the bill to phase out copper-bottom paint from the 2021 deadline moved to 2026 and will only occur if there is a reliable and readily available option available. Senate Bill 6210 passed both chambers unanimously.

How can I, as a voter, play a bigger role in the legislative process? As someone who likes to read about history, it’s one thing to read history, it’s another thing to make history. Whether it’s boating (I hope it is) or another cause near and dear to your hearts, associate yourself with likeminded individuals in a larger group. Latch onto a group like the Recreational Boating Association of Washington (RBAW) and help us get more stuff done in Olympia. In our case, politics matter because an inordinate amount of decisions affecting our passion is decided by nonboaters. That’s just the way it is. That said, why not help your lawmakers get more oriented around boating by befriending them with timely articles? Are your two state representatives and state senator interested in mental health funding in Olympia? I can help you with that one, by the way, if you contact me. Just mail them a copy of the book: Blue Mind: The surprising science that shows how being near, in, on, or under water can make you happier, healthier, more connected and better at what you do. And on that note, curling up with a good book seems like a good idea right about now. I’m going to head over to Captain’s Nautical in Ballard and get caught up with some reading.

Determining the 2020-2021 Season It’s a very important time for salmon anglers as we’re within days of the final outcome of the 2020-2021 salmon fishing season setting process that will determine where we can fish and the amount of our salmon catch. While we await the verdict, issues are still being hashed out in meetings between state, federal and tribal co-fishery managers, as well as sport and commercial fishing constituents. Each group is vying for fishing opportunities, but also focusing on the bigger picture of conserving wild salmon stocks that are protected under the federal Endangered Species Act. There is also a myriad of other issues ranging from killer whales and pollution runoff to habitat restoration and protection. Once it’s signed, sealed, and delivered around April 10, the paperwork will be my roadmap on where to go salmon fishing this summer and fall. In early March, the public had their first glimpse of forecasts showing the salmon returns are down across the board, a trend dating back to 2016. “For Puget Sound Chinook, we’re a little lower on certain stocks, but general numbers of hatchery returns are about where they have been,” said Mark Baltzell with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s

is mid-summer through November. The preliminary Columbia River Chinook return looks rosy on paper with computer-generated forecasts. In the past few years, those returns were dismal when fish were dealing with in-river drought conditions and the “Blob” in the Pacific Ocean. An estimated 430,000 Columbia River fall Chinook are expected in 2020 compared to 340,400 predicted and an actual return of 375,700 in 2019, and 365,600 predicted and 290,900 actual return in 2018. The upriver bright Chinook make up the bulk with a 2020 forecast of 233,400 compared to 158,400 predicted and 212,200 actual returns in 2019. The lower Columbia River “tule” hatchery Chinook (a driver for ocean salmon fisheries) is predicted at 51,000— down from a forecast 54,500 but up from actual return of 48,900 in 2019. On the Washington coast, the Willapa Bay Chinook forecast is up with 31,185 compared to 28,100 in 2019. This is a popular inner-bay fishery from August through Labor Day weekend. A low coho forecast of 268,700 is expected to arrive off the Washington and Oregon coast compared to a preseason forecast of 1,009,600 last year and an actual return of 408,100 in 2019. Of that, around 181,000 are predicted

Some, like the mid-Hood Canal Chinook stocks, are quite alarming with just 39 Chinook forecasted to return in 2020 compared to 286 in 2019, while a Stillaguamish predicted return of 901 Chinook is up from 888 in 2019. The Puget Sound Coho return is expected to see a dip in 2020, with a forecast of 523,498 compared to 708,521 in 2019.

Spring Fishing Options Break out of the winter doldrums and get the boat on the water for decent early spring salmon fishing opportunities. These include the western Strait of Juan de Fuca (Area 5), which is open for hatchery Chinook fishing through April 30, and the eastern Strait (Area 6) open through April 15; San Juan Islands (Area 7) and northern Puget Sound (Area 9) are open through April 15. The south-central Puget Sound (Area 11), Hood Canal (Area 12), and east side of Whidbey Island (Areas 8-1 and 8-2) are open through April 30. Southern Puget Sound (Area 13) is open year-round. Central Puget Sound (Area 10) is closed for salmon and should reopen later this summer. Salmon aren’t the only noteworthy fish species to catch. The coastal lingcod fishery is open off Ilwaco, Westport, La Push, and Neah Bay west of the Bonilla-Tatoosh boundary line. Areas east of Bonilla-Tatoosh open April 16. Many inner-Puget Sound areas open May 1. The eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca and most of Puget Sound open for halibut on April 16, earlier than in past years when the season didn’t begin until early May. The western Strait, Ilwaco, La Push, and Neah Bay opens April 30 for halibut. For dates on when fishing is open or closed and regulations, visit wdfw.wa.gov.

Ask Nigel By Nigel Barron

From Point A to Point B, Part II In last month’s Northwest Yachting, we addressed the issue about purchasing a boat from out of state and having it moved. Daniel J. wrote in and asked about hiring a captain to deliver the boat instead. There are advantages and disadvantages to water deliveries that warrant special consideration as the logistics get ironed out. Some advantages would be savings on the trucking costs and yard bills, but let’s work on the assumption that the boat can be feasibly trucked. If you’re buying a boat in New England, you can have the boat trucked to Seattle in seven days. By water, it may take months. If the boat is not on the same continent, it may make sense to explore some of the shipping companies such as Dockwise Yacht Transport (formerly Dockwise) as an option. If you have plans to cruise in the Caribbean, it may make sense to truck it to Florida. Another logistical issue to consider is the type of boat and if it is really up to the task. If you bought a 40-foot day sailor, or bowrider, it most definitely makes sense to put it on a truck. Whether the boat is sail or power, you’ll have some truck and yard costs that will be eliminated. However, you will also want to consider some added expenses associated with a water delivery. Before making that call to a captain, it’s important to consider if the boat is prepared for a blue water delivery. Any good captain is going to require a current survey and proof that deficiencies have been corrected before agreeing to the delivery. For power boats, greater emphasis is placed on a mechanical survey, whereas with a sailboat, more attention is placed on a rigging survey. After the survey items are considered and any issues corrected, there are additional items that may be necessary to make a blue water delivery. Considerations such as whether the boat has a current life raft or an Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon (EPIRB), as these items can be costly. Are there mechanical spares onboard, offshore sails, and/or offshore communications? These are the questions to ask when you start analyzing what additional costs you may need to absorb. Another big consideration is calculating the fuel; how many gallons per hour that the boat uses and its range so you know how many fuel stops will be required. Staffing the delivery crew must also be factored in as you determine the cost per person for food and any other fees that you may be required to pay, including airfare and hotels. Determining a delivery plan from Point A to Point B in advance is key so you can factor the number of days on the water into your cost analysis. Probably the biggest unknown involved with a water delivery are the costs associated with wear and tear. The

average boat gets about 100 hours of usage a year. That breaks down to basically four days. A trip from San Francisco to Seattle, for example, could easily put two years’ worth of wear and tear on the boat and systems. That’s a lot. When and if you do start looking for a delivery captain, my advice is that you ask around and talk to people you trust. If you purchased the boat from a broker, they may be able to refer someone. There are also plenty of online forums where you can ask for recommendations and read reviews. Finding someone who is familiar with your brand or type of boat is a plus and worth some extra digging. Not all boats are created equal and neither are all captains. Speak to your insurance agent to check if the insurance company has any specific requirements

Finding someone who is familiar with your brand or type of boat is a plus and worth some extra digging. Not all boats are created equal and neither are all captains. or licenses that the captain may need. Find out if the captain you’re considering has made deliveries on the same route and if so, on what types of boats. Other questions to explore include whether they have their own liability insurance, a current captain’s license, and what tonnage boats they have sailed. Some captains will charge more if the owner comes along, so this is a question to address up front. Thanks for the question, Daniel J. The short answer is that in some cases, it just doesn’t make sense to hire a captain to deliver your boat. Do you have a question about your boat, your friend’s boat or a stranger’s boat but didn’t know who to ask? If so, please ask me and we may explore the answer in a future column!

British Columbia’s Coastal Craft has an evolutionary design philosophy, but their latest model, the 33 Express, has a radically new look. I visited the company’s factory to see how the new boat came together, what it’s like on the water, and what the company has in store for the future.

WORDS AND PHOTOS:

ALEX KWANTEN

56 NORTHWEST YACHTING || APRIL 2020

A silver and black boat appears on the horizon, leaving a white wake as it approaches. The shape is deceptive. From a distance, it’s hard to discern how big or small it is. The sleek, unadorned coupe gives no hint to its construction or origin. Deeply tinted windows seem flush with the boat’s clean,

A

uninterrupted surfaces. No rails, chrome flourishes, or unnecessary details are to be seen. Whatever it is, this boat is moving fast. At 40 mph, it passes by in a silvery flash; nearly 40 feet from anchor to outboard. The hum of the twin outboards quickly fades as the boat speeds away. The only


clue to its identity? Chrome script on the side that reads, “Coastal Craft 33 Express.” Coastal Craft, based in the town of Gibsons on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast, is best known as a manufacturer of durable and capable aluminum fishing boats, but it’s also a company always exploring new waters. After years of building larger and ever more consumer-friendly boats, the company made headlines in 2014 for building a series of 65’ luxury yachts. The aluminum yachts brought Coastal into the world of luxury boating to widespread applause. Now, the company is trying to create a hybrid of sport and luxury with that silver flash that sped by me—the 33 Express. The key word here? Aluminum. This material allows a boat to be both strong and lightweight, plus aluminum resists corrosion so it functions well both in salt and fresh water. By selecting aluminum as a main building material, Coastal Craft is free from the constraints of fiberglass molds. The company has taken advantage of this flexibility and is known for innovation along with a reputation for impeccable fit and finish. Those winning qualities are embedded in the 33 Express, which came out of the factory in late 2019 and debut at the Seattle Boat Show in January 2020. It was there that I overheard boaters saying, “Is that really made of aluminum?” and “Wow, that’s gonna be a star in Miami.” That’s exactly the response Coastal Craft’s founder and President Jeff Rhodes wanted. The Coastal Craft team created the stylish design for new markets like California and South Florida. Coastal leveraged its expertise to maximum effect both in design and performance with this build. Below the gunwale, the Express shares a great deal with another relatively new Coastal Craft boat - the 33 ProFish, introduced in 2018. Above it, however, the 33 Express is characterized by a radically different cabin with an emphasis on style and luxury. The Express is only fractionally wider than its ProFish sister overall, but the cabin is considerably wider within the hull’s footprint. That’s specifically to give it a large, airy salon and a big back deck. A huge sunroof sits up top, offering the option of boating al fresco but providing a sealed top in sunny Miami or rainy Seattle. The salon’s glass doors open to an expansive aft deck. Coastal’s core customers are fishing people and the 33 Express is adept at fishing; but the emphasis is on functional luxury both inside and out.

“We were looking to give boaters a different kind of platform,” Rhodes says, “something which had fishing amenities, but also something designed to be a social space.” On this boat, the stereo equipment and fine interior fittings are as important as rod holders and bait boxes. The slick exterior is a result of cloaking all that entertaining space in a creative way. “We were aiming for a really clean and crisp look while maintaining functionality,” Rhodes adds. The flush glass, swept back windshield, and clean lines give the boat a distinctive 21st-century look and would be just at home in Biscayne Bay or Newport Beach as in the fjords of Howe Sound. Like an Arc'teryx® jacket (another British Columbia favorite), it’s stylish and comfortable but gives away nothing in functionality. According to Rhodes, customers already want more of these boats. A 41-foot variation of the Express is due in 2021, but first, here’s our look at the 33 Express.

EVOLUTIONARY DESIGN “Sometimes at a show, a customer will notice that we’ve put a box or a handle or a feature in a particularly convenient place and ask us how we thought of it,” says Coastal Craft Operations Manager Jason Dugal. “Usually, it’s because somebody asked for it and it worked, so we made it available for everyone.” No two aluminum boats are exactly alike because they are assembled in a jig

from sheet aluminum alloy, and Coastal Craft allows a high degree of customization on each boat. But the company doesn’t make oneoffs. Instead, it applies lessons learned in each build to all the boats built after that. Simply put, it’s “kaizen,” the Japanese term for continuous improvement, that’s at work on every single build. “When we say we allow customization,” Dugal adds, “We really do.” By keeping certain structural and basic elements the same, the boat can be tailored without adding too much extra cost or complexity. Additional features can also be adopted by modifying the boat even after it’s built. On my visit to the factory, two boats were being modified, and the lessons learned will be applied to future builds. The company gets a great deal of feedback (and sometimes visits) from its owners. “We always have a spot for them at Gibsons Marina,” Dugal says. No sooner did the words come out of his mouth, than he pauses and smiles, “Now that I said that, I know I’m going to have a day where seven boats show up at once.” Feedback from customers who were more interested in cruising than fishing prompted Jeff Rhodes to conceive of the 33 Express. “Most people were suggesting that 80 percent of the time they wanted the big salon and the big back deck,” he adds, “and were willing to compromise on accommodations. They wanted to have more people on board and more usable space for them.” For those reasons, the

Clockwise from above: The giant sunroof lets light stream into the airy salon despite the heavy tinting on the side windows. Black walnut panels, light upholstery, and a smooth quartz countertop define your surfaces and give the salon a proper luxury look. As with the exterior, the design is simple and clean.

salon dominates the hull, with a six-anda-half foot berth at the front. “Having now built two and shown them extensively, most customers respond that the salon feels more like a 40- or 45-footer than a 33,” he adds. It does feel big, and the huge glass area and sunroof belie its actual size. I sampled Hull #2, built for Floridian sunshine with tinted windows. “The boat is ideal for a couple’s cruiser or a small family,” Rhodes says, “and in markets like Florida and California, there’s less overnighting than in the Pacific Northwest.” You could still do overnight trips with friends and family, as the dining space converts into a second berth if needed, and optional fuel tanks and a generator (inherited from the ProFish) can

take you out very far. Rhodes, however, sees the Express primarily as a day-and-night entertainer rather than a distance cruiser. Although the interior structure is derived from the ProFish, there’s more of a luxury emphasis inside the Express. Beautifully finished black walnut cabinetry and paneling dominate, with storage in every conceivable spot with push-button handles. The glassy expanses are framed by long accent lights that brighten the interior. “The Express interior is essentially a scaled-down version of our 65 interiors,” says Coastal Craft Joinery Manager Tyler McMullen. “Same fit and finish, same accents and details, just simplified and more compact.” Even boaters just over six

GIBSONS Although it’s only an hour northwest from Vancouver, B.C., Gibsons feels like another, and much quieter, world. Accessible only by B.C. Ferries, the picturesque town, founded in 1886 with a current population of 4,600, is the gateway to British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast. Nestled within expansive parks and stunning views of Howe Sound and the Strait of Georgia, the town is divided into the newer areas of Upper Gibsons and the older Lower Gibsons, with a small waterfront business district by Gibsons Marina that features fun shops and great walking areas. The centerpiece of lower Gibsons is Molly’s Reach, once just a fictional restaurant featured in the CBC television show The Beachcombers that became the real thing after the show ended. Be sure to try the fish & chips.

feet tall won’t be cramped in the Express’ confines. The berth up front is modest, but the sloped sides of the front of the hull add some room and convenience. Space in the galley is well organized and comprehensive. Owners can choose their own setup, but everything is within easy reach. After a day out fishing, you could easily fry up a couple of salmon fillets and a side dish on the Force 10 electric range without having to contort yourself or interrupt your passengers while they play rummy at the dining table. The head is simple and reasonably large for a boat of this size. A shower is optional, but given the boat’s mission, Rhodes expects few will be spec’d out in that way. The non-shower head is also finished in dark walnut with the same high-quality joinery as the rest of the interior. “We’re really in love with that dark walnut,” says McMullen, “It’s a very rich finish and lightweight. To keep overall weight down, lightening holes are drilled in places customers cannot see, that keeps efficiency up but doesn’t affect quality. Joinery doesn’t end at woodwork either,” he adds, “because aluminum varies with welding, the flush exterior windows were also a challenge. Ordering and fitting the glass requires very precise measurements and tolerances.” From any real distance, say 5 feet or more, the entire window setup looks like one sheet of uninterrupted glass. The design could easily have come from the pen of iPhone designer Jony Ive.


THE FACTORY RIDING THE EXPRESS After my tour of the factory and a detailed look at the 33 Express’s interior, it was time for the main event—a ride on the speedster. Dugal, McMullen, and I set out aboard Hull #2 from Gibsons Marina. Joystick control is a frequently chosen option, but Hull #2 only has throttle controls. We backed away slowly from the dock crowded with boats and calmly moved out into Shoal Channel. As it was weekday, and a cold one at that, we had the water pretty much to ourselves aside from a few barges and a lonely old tug-and-barge pair cleaning up stray lumber near the New Brighton public dock. Howe Sound and Gibsons became famous throughout Canada in the 1970s and 1980s, thanks to the long-running TV show The Beachcombers. The show followed the misadventures of Greek-Canadian log salvager Nick Adonidas (played by actor Bruno Gerussi) and his tug Persephone as they kept coastline free of stray lumber. Then, as now, there’s plenty of debris that breaks away from the log booms moving down from the giant lumber and pulp operations at Port Mellon. With our eyes peeled, we gradually picked up speed past Keats Island and then Gambier Island. One of the advantages of an aluminum boat is durability, and Coastal Craft’s aluminum structures are not an exception. If you hit a deadhead at 35 knots, for example, it may hurt your paint but you won’t sink. All Coastal Crafts sport lightweight planing hulls, and by extension, the Express is very fast. It has a quoted top speed of 41 knots, but in clean water you’d hardly know how fast you were moving unless you were watching the instruments. It might be different in nasty chop, but the shallow draft (just 2 feet) and modest deadrise give the boat a smooth ride and ski-boat agility. “It’s a ton of fun being able to make tight turns at 40 mph,” Dugal says. The boat corners quickly indeed, but it feels stable. Two optional gas-powered Mercury Marine Verado 400s push the boat to the tune of 800 horsepower. They’re ethanolfriendly, too. “The standard engines are the Verado 350, but you can option up or option down,” says Rhodes. The company began switching its designs to outboards a few years ago in part to offer more space on their boats, and because outboard technology became more reliable and efficient. The twin engines return good fuel economy in the Express: One nautical mile per gallon at 30 knots, depending on the water and your disposition to winding it up. None of this action detracts from the soft confines of the boat. It’s not hard to

CRAFTING ON THE SUNSHINE COAST Since 1996, Coastal Craft has delivered more than 140 of its aluminum boats to customers across Canada and the Unites States. In the company’s early years, it specialized in work boats for logging, rescue, and whale watching operations. In 2001, a customer requested one of those boats be outfitted belowdecks with creature comforts such as a sleeping area and a head. So it was then that Coastal’s modern line took shape, eventually leading to the firm’s 65’ luxury yachts in 2014. At the beginning and now, Coastal builds according to the customer’s wants and needs. Coastal Craft produces all its boats and most of the components in a facility in upper Gibsons, British Columbia. About 35 employees hum away welding, painting, producing wood fixtures, and assembling. The bucolic location, about two miles from Gibsons Marina, offers a high standard of living for the employees with lower overhead costs than in nearby Vancouver. Each hull starts out as sheets of aluminum which are MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welded into shape, and the structure formed in a massive jig. Once the boat is structurally complete, it moves into the paint booth, and finally to the outfitting area. Between these steps, individual components are assembled in a modular way by small teams. The woodshop hums with the sound of machines and sanding. Everything from electronics panels to instruments are assembled with meticulous care. Components are then installed in an approach that saves time and supports quality control. The build process is a model of efficiency, informed by Toyota’s famous “just in time” and team-oriented methods of production. Teamwork in action is easy to observe in Coastal Craft’s facility because the process is so refined and the individual teams – usually no more than five people – so organized. At any given time, six boats may be in various stages of production. Case in point? We boarded a 33’ ProFish in the outfitting area at 9:40 am when it had no instruments or ceiling panels. Only the structure of the galley was assembled. By 2:30 pm, the ceiling soffits, galley countertop, and some of the helm instruments were carefully crafted and put in place. Many customers also bring their boats back for service and modification after delivery. Because the hulls are aluminum, a great deal of extra customization can be done later. While I was there, one boat was in the outfitting area was getting an extended deck roof and a watertight side door added to the hull. The current outfitting area was built for the construction of the big 65s, but now houses two bays where smaller boats can be in process simultaneously.

DUAL PURPOSE DECKS At the time we were on board, Hull #2 had no rails installed. This offers the visual experience in entirely unadulterated form, but you have to be careful putting out your fenders. “When we built that hull, we were fairly sure it would be sold to a customer in South Florida,” says Jeff, who explains that there’s a bit of a bias against rails in Florida. “Rails can be distracting with the glare, and there’s also an aesthetic preference.” At the very least, he suspects many owners will fit at least a top rail to grab on to when heading to the bow. Out back, Hull #2 also differs from Hull #1 in that the deck is set up with a bent towards recreational fishing. “It isn’t exactly set up as we’d see in the Pacific Northwest for salmon or bottom fishing,

MIGHTY MINIS By Peter Marsh & Nate Sandel

“Miniboats may be small, but they are mighty,” explains Nate Sandel, Education Director at the Columbia River Maritime Museum. “We’ve seen these boats capture the imagination of our students, but also many people from around the world who encounter the boats, help with a rescue, or simply follow the boats’ progress online.”

There’s a heated debate going on among yachtsmen in clubs and committees all over the world about how to recruit young people to the sport. “Get ‘em young” is one idea, and requires investments in dinghies, instructors, waterfront facilities, not to mention strong financial support from parents. In Astoria, at the mouth of the mighty Columbia River, the Columbia Maritime

Museum (CRMM) has found a unique way to interest children from grades 5-7 in boats, geography, navigation, and even international studies. They partner with a school in Japan to assemble 5-foot-long sailing Miniboats to launch on a very long voyage towards each other’s countries, carried by the prevailing winds and currents across the mighty Pacific Ocean. Miniboats were introduced in 2008 on the East Coast by an organization called Educational Passages, which has enabled classes around the world to launch Miniboats on voyages, mostly across the Atlantic. This caught the imagination of Nate Sandel, CRMM education director, when he first saw a Miniboat at a STEMposium in Portland early in 2017. When he returned to Astoria, Sandel explained to the museum’s directors how this would be a perfect fit for schools around the Columbia River and was given approval to develop the CRMM Miniboat Program, a unique project linking students on both sides of the Pacific. Sandel started out by developing a curriculum, contacting local schools, meeting the Japanese consul in Portland, and looking for a sponsor to cover the cost of the boats and other expenses. Pacific Power was eager to become the business sponsor, as well as provide their engineers as mentors. The Japanese Consul General in Portland agreed to find partner classes on the northeastern coast of Japan. With this strong backing of the program, Sandel put out a call to fifth grade teachers in Oregon and Southwest Washington to participate beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.

Sit up straight and pay attention, you at the back! This is the way it works for the lucky schools and kids chosen to participate. Each American class receives two bare fiberglass hulls: one it will fit out and launch on the West Coast, and one is brought to Japan for its partner class to launch. Three classes are chosen each year, and Sandel visits them once a week and leads them through the long list of jobs to be completed. He puts students in charge of everything, and encourages them to name their groups as quartermasters, sail designers, keel engineers, cargo trackers, documentarians, etc. Their boats may be smaller than ours, but their tasks include every aspect of fitting out a bare hull—from sanding and applying anti-fouling paint and topside enamel to attaching the deck with waterproof sealant, working on a large tarp, and wearing aprons and disposable gloves. Some assembly is required – the keel must be ballasted and the mast glued in place. Some students write the press releases for local media and letters to their sister school using Google Translator. Others study weather maps and GPS systems. Finally, the students decide on a name together, pick a drop-off point, and pick out the small gifts and souvenirs they want to pack under the deck before she sets sail.

THE LITTLE EXPLORERS “At fifth grade, it’s such a year of growth for kids to learn about the world outside of our coastal region,” said teacher Sarah Collins from Gearhart, Oregon. “There are kids halfway around the globe

that are just like them and who are participating in the same thing and thinking about us, and we’re thinking about them,” she said. “It’s making them more global citizens versus just kids from Gearhart and Seaside, and has helped them understand science, measurements, and more.” There is already a remarkable connection between Gearhart and Japan that happened after the 2011 tsunami. A wooden torii (or gate) to a Shinto shrine in Okuki that was carried away by the flood eventually washed up on the Gearhart beach. The Portland Japanese Garden arranged for it to be returned in 2012. The Okuki school is next to the torii, so Sandel chose this school to be the partner to Gearhart. Although the students were very young during the tsunami, they understand that this is an important gift their town has made and that it has won the respect of Okuki’s people. While the boats are at sea, students on both sides of the Pacific track their progress via the solar-powered GPS units that ping their locations to NOAA satellites. The teachers also work the boats into lesson plans to study weather, maps, math, and more. After three years, Sandel is proud to report that over 1,200 students on both sides of the Pacific Ocean have been involved in the launch of 27 Miniboats, which have traveled almost 60,000 nautical miles—a number that climbs daily.

THE BIG VOYAGE “While it would be amazing if one of the boats makes it across, the project is really about introducing students on both sides

of the Pacific to the wider world beyond their shores,” Sandel reflects. “It’s sort of like sending your kid away to college: this boat has been a weekly part of their life for a whole school year, and it was the kids’ hard work that has made this all happen. So the launch is always a really exciting, bittersweet moment.” Sandel took the Gearhart boat S/V American Sunset aboard a Columbia River Bar Pilot boat heading out the mouth of the Columbia to the Pacific where it was left to the mercy of the wind and currents. The class chose the mouth of the Columbia with the hope their boat would ride the Alaska Current across the Pacific to the north. Other classes have asked U.S. Coast Guard and southbound freighters to launch their Miniboats off Baja, Mexico, hoping they’ll catch the North Equatorial Current to Japan. “The Miniboat Program offers an extraordinary way for 5th through 7th grade students in our region to learn crucial STEAM skills, discover future careers, and build international connections that will last a lifetime," shares Alisa Dunlap, Clatsop County regional business manager at Pacific Power. "We know STEAM skills

are important part of building opportunity for the future, especially in the small communities we serve. We are excited to support a program dedicated to enriching the education of young learners and empowering them to try new things and explore their creativity.” STEAM fields are defined as science and technology, interpreted through engineering and the arts, and based in mathematics. Every November, Sandel packs up the Miniboats American students build for their partner classes, navigates their bulky shape through airport security, and travels the 4,500 miles to Japan to deliver them himself. He takes his young daughter Hudson along. “She is named after the explorer Henry Hudson,” he explained. Her presence attracts more attention from Japanese of all ages, and they were met and welcomed by many officials, teachers, and pupils. The boats arrive with gifts from the American students in their hull, gifts like books and saltwater taffy. Then the Japanese students finish decorating the boats, seal their own local mementos in the hull, stage their own maritime ceremony, and Continued on Page 66

The Amazing Voyage of the S/V Nishi Kaze

Top left: Agreeing on a suitable name for the boat is an important lesson, and a difficult decision! Top right: This Miniboat is resting in the rescue cradle on the stern of the Columbia Bar Pilots boat. The pilots lowered and launched the tiny vessel on their next trip over the bar. Above: The class listens to a Coast Guardsman on the deck of the U. S. Coast Guard Cutter STEADFAST, moored at Astoria’s 17th St. Pier, opposite the museum. The cutter’s crew launched the Miniboat off Baja Mexico on March 8.

In 2017, the first year of the Columbia River Miniboat program, the fourth-grade class at Richmond Elementary School in Portland, Oregon, fitted out the S/V Nishi Kaze (“Western Wind” in Japanese). Then the 5-footlong boat was loaded on the cable ship Decisive that was waiting at anchor in Astoria, Oregon, and finally launched off the coast of Baja, Mexico, on December 2 at a position selected by the students. After sailing west—at least for most of the time—for 398 days and covering 12,672 miles, the GPS stopped transmitting somewhere in Micronesia. Seventy-six days later, the museum received an email message from Monika Eeru, a resident of Tarawa, Kiribati: “We found one boat and a small plastic paper with a piece of paper write on this website.” Three months later, Sandel found himself on a Fiji Airways flight bound for Tarawa, 5,000 miles from Portland with a layover in Nadi, Fiji. He had five days to locate and repair the Nishi Kaze and send it back out into the Pacific on its way west. Every day was an adventure and he wrote about this amazing experience in the CRMM’s quarterly journal, The Quarterdeck. Very few yachts ever visit these remote low-lying islands, where the sea is never more than a short walk away and small skiffs are the only way to travel between the atolls. “After thirty-eight hours of travel, we made our final approach into the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen,” Sandel wrote. “The man next to me asked what I was doing traveling to Kiribati-pronounced “kiri-bass.” This island nation is the third leastvisited country in the world, so the Kiribati people are always curious when they see i-matang (foreigners). I went into a tenminute rant about the Miniboats and the one I was trying to rescue. As we got off the plane, the man handed me his card and said to drop by the Parliament Building to visit him. I had been sitting next to Kiribati’s Minister of Commerce!” At baggage claim, an excessively cheerful, apparently drunk Australian with a wild

mustache, and dressed for the outback, introduced himself. “Hi mate—I’m very interested in what you’re doing. If you have any troubles, contact me—I’ve been coming here to work for twenty years, and I know all the locals. I’m at Mary’s Hotel.” Little did Sandel know that the gregarious Gary would become his go-to guy to navigate his way through the local customs and across the lagoon. Kiribati is the only county in the world spanning all hemispheres. Tarawa, part of the Gilbert Islands, was the setting of one of the bloodiest battles of WWII. The highest point in Kiribati is two meters above sea level, making it one of the most endangered countries in the world. After arriving at his hotel, Sandel set out to hire a boat to take him across the lagoon to North Tarawa, the Miniboat’s reported location. To his surprise, every boatman he asked wanted between $800 and $1,400 for the trip; more money than he had budgeted for or was even carrying with him. He walked disappointedly back to the hotel in the tropical heat, ordered an ice-cold Fiji Gold beer, and started pondering what to do next. He had only 51 hours left in Kiribati, no transportation, and only the name of a village on a small islet on the other side of the lagoon. Then in walked Outback Gary. “Find yer boat, mate?” he asked. Sandel explained about the high price and his lack of time. “Don’t panic, mate, I’ll find you a boat for $400” — any more than that

When he returned, he proudly announced: “Mate, I got the gardener from the embassy to take us in his personal boat for $200 plus $50 for fuel! Hell, mate—we’re going to get your boat back!” The next day, they arrived at the hut of an islander named Bobo who owned the 11’ outboard boat that would carry them to the village of Nuatabu. Nate was relieved to see Gary had found two real life jackets that he tossed into the boat along with food, beer, and a case of water. Bobo reckoned it would take an hour, but it soon became evident that he had not mastered the traditional style of navigation. Luckily, they ran into an old man fishing in an outrigger canoe who pointed the way to the right islet. A crowd of children welcomed them, and led the way through the village where the i-matang quickly created a stir; a parade formed to escort the strangers to the empty hut where the S/V Nishi Kaze sat. The villagers explained how they spotted it, and that one villager swam out and guided it safely over the reef. Several people signed the new sail Sandel was carrying, they exchanged small gifts, and it was time to head back to Bobo’s boat to beat the tide back across the lagoon. A tropical squall hit 30 minutes later. The waves kicked up, and they were pelted with rain that would scare an Oregonian. The islands disappeared in the downpour, and several waves nearly capsized the boat. When they arrived back at the wharf

way, but the Nishi Kaze was reluctant to leave and turned back towards the reef.

Bobo with the Nishi Kaze

none the worse for wear, the Minister of Commerce and his wife were waiting, having heard through the island grapevine that they had left to get the Miniboat. Sandel spent the evening repairing the Nishi Kaze for the relaunch the next day. He opened the cargo hatch and found the AP3 GPS transmitter had come away from its mount. He built a new, more secure base for the new transmitter, switched out the sail, and applied a coat of bottom paint. Strolling around town that night, he felt confident that the mission could be completed—with Gary’s help. Early the next day, Gary was back and raring to go. He had located the perfect spot to launch at the southern tip of the atoll. When they arrived, he parked the Subaru Forester and tried carrying the boat the mile-long walk over coral to reach the open ocean. By now, Sandel was thinking more like a local, so he climbed over the road barrier, dropped the Miniboat into a channel, and began swimming it towards an opening in the reef, under the watchful eyes of three fishermen. He gave it one more big push to send the boat on its

Kiribati Kids

One of the fishermen stripped down, dove in the water, and swam over to the foreigner who, despite all his efforts and hopes, was about to be smashed into the reef along with the boat. “Hold my flippers,” the man said. He swam to the Nishi Kaze, grabbed the keel and pulled it to safety. Then he swam fifty meters out to sea where the Miniboat immediately caught a gust and took off like an outrigger canoe catching the trade wind. “It was an out-of-body experience,” Sandal recalled. “At that moment, I reflected on the meaning of the Nishi Kaze to those kids, and the overall meaning of the project. This Miniboat, built by kids in Japan and the United States to foster friendship between them, was now sailing away from Tarawa, where 75 years ago 6,000 of both our countrymen died fighting each other.” He learned later that the fisherman was the Police Inspector for all of Kiribati—yet another connection with this model boat that had set so bravely from Oregon thousands of miles and world away. “I was blown away by the seemingly impossible co-existence of poverty and happiness. The Kiribati have very little, but are still the happiest people I have ever met,” he wrote. Nate Sandel is a graduate of Central Michigan University and has worked at the CRMM since 2005. He has taught in 37 states, five countries, and counting. For more information visit crmm.org or email sandel@crmm.org.

choose local sailors to set the boats on their course to America. It might seem far-fetched to think that a tiny boat, glued together and brightly painted by 10 year olds, could sail across the Pacific on its own, but as I was writing this piece on March 8, the Miniboat Facebook page was updated with this message: “We are happy to report that yesterday, S/V Philbert (Columbia City Elementary) and S/V Boat-A-Lahti (from Hilda Lahti Elementary School in Astoria, Oregon, and on its fourth attempt) were launched at sunset off the coast of Mexico by the crew of the U. S. Coast Guard Cutter STEADFAST.” So more boats are on their way west towards the islands of Micronesia through a world of seagulls and whales, wind and waves.

This year’s participants include 7th graders from Warrenton Grade School in Warrenton, Oregon, 5th graders at Columbia City Elementary School in Columbia City, Oregon, and 7th graders from Wy’East Middle School in Vancouver, Washington. They may still be blown onto the beach in Baja, but some that went before them are more than halfway across. “The boats that crash or hug the shore may give me heart attacks but they’re the really exciting ones,” said Sandel. “That’s because crashing is rarely the end of their story. I promise my students that I will chase down any shipwrecked Miniboat, no matter where it goes.” Each hull carries a message in multiple languages asking finders to take the Miniboat to the nearest

Then Sandel works with that class and local sailors to get the boat fixed up and back on course. “The cool thing is every time these boats land somewhere, we’re engaging a new group of people,” Sandel pointed out. Peter Marsh grew up in Greenwich, UK, started dinghy sailing in 1963, and witnessed the start of the Singlehanded Trans-Atlantic Race in 1964. He was involved in early trimaran development, then joined Major H.W. Tilman for a voyage to the Arctic in 1971. He came to the United States in 1972 and has only built one more multihull, a small open trimaran that he cruised to Alaska twice in the 1980s, plus a 1986 voyage on the Great Lakes. He described those voyages in his first stories for Northwest Yachting magazine. He has lived in Astoria since 2002. Read many of his stories at www.sea-to-summit.net

Pictures 1-5: Race conditions were nearly perfect March 7 for Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle’s race to Blakely Rock, the first race of the Center Sound Series. But the Race Committee scrambled when they learned that the only mark they had set for this race had drifted into the shipping lanes, to the chagrin of the Matson container ship captain who was travelling northbound at roughly 20 knots at the time. Sadly, the race had to be abandoned for safety and USCG permit compliance reasons. CYC is exploring alternative locations to set this pesky roving mark in the future. (Photos 1-4: Arden Rathkopf)

Aluminum can do anything: This 30' sport fishing Coastal Craft is in for "maintenance," and by that, we mean that two-foot section of the side of the hull was being cut out and a water-right swiveling door installed, while the roof of the boat was also being modified for a two-foot extension over the back deck. It's the adaptable, workable nature of aluminum that makes it possible.. Hand Crafted: We got to watch as all of the pieces for these Coastal Craft trim sets were CNC cut and assembled with loving care.

RACING SHEET

Sailing into Spring Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson While some of the best sailors in western Washington claim there is no sailing south of Alki, clearly, they have not gone far enough. Marking the second half of the season-bending South Sound Series, the Toliva Shoals race once again knocked it out of the park for a fantastic day on the water. While the fleet enjoyed a relatively calm delivery south from Seattle, the wind had some tricks in store for race day. A gusty breeze starting out in the high teens welcomed sailors after a cramped car ride down I-5. The forecast had everyone excited for the first big wind race of the year and those of us on board Absolutely, Charlie Macaulay’s Farr 39, were eager to shake things out. Motoring out to the start line felt almost boring, but we were quickly corrected. We exited the channel with no sail up and were nearly knocked down from what must have been the largest puff of the day. We headed

W

upwind to hoist the mainsail and rigged things to allow us to shorten sails by reefing, a rare experience in the Northwest. Working out towards the start line, crews perked up as 25-knot puffs came rolling down the bay from the capitol building. We watched the cruising classes get underway with a fair bit of excitement as large spinnakers were set and 1980’s death rolls commenced. Alternating between spinnaker pole and boom touching the water is never a good sign, but within minutes things settled down, the racing fleet sequence began to take shape, and the tempo of race day took over. The fleets got underway with little drama and moved quickly as the wind built behind them. The name of the game for this race was traffic management. Even on board the nimble Absolutely, we found ourselves intermixed with the bulk of the fleet for most of the race. The opening spinnaker run off the line had its fair share

of excitement, but with big boats “shrimping” spinnakers and little boats making huge gains by never setting a kite to begin with, it was a mixed bag. As the day continued, our focus shifted to optimizing what wind we had, with the breeze going from 20 to 2 knots in a matter of seconds and back to 20 in half that. Staying in the pressure and making the best of the twists and turns of the course quickly separated the fleet through the narrow racecourse. The final run to the turning mark at Toliva Shoals was the make or break point. Top speeds and wide smiles filled the fleet before crews settled into hiking upwind all the way back to Olympia to finish. Not to be outdone by the state capital, Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle kicked off the spring racing season with the annual Center Sound Series on March 7th. This year’s race was to be a traditional course, out and around Blakely Rock, northward

to a pre-set mark near Edmonds and back to the finish. Although the current global medical situation, aka coronavirus, put a halt to the post-race activities, the stage was set for a fantastic day on the water. Things began with a questionable forecast calling for a 5- to 10-knot southerly and an abrupt change to a 10-knot northerly around noon, basically a convergence zone occurred directly over the racecourse. With it being anyone’s guess how things would play out, racing got underway on schedule and the waves of boats began to work their way towards Blakely Rock with a bit of oscillation in the breeze. The first part of the day rolled along like normal, with the majority of the fleet choosing to work tight along the breakwater and maximize the outflow of water from the locks to gain the upper hand. As the fleet neared the rocks themselves, the wind shifted to make the lay line a complicated matter, resulting in more than a handful of arguments between the navigators and boat owners bickering about how close to navigate the hazard that was our race mark. All is well that ends well, no major reports of groundings circulated the fleet, and up the spinnakers went for the kite run to the north. Once around the rocks, things remained scattered as boats darted every which way in hopes of outsmarting the competition. The venerable Sachem showed how


Results: Toliva Shoals 2020 wrong they could be by pulling the spinnaker pole as far back as it could go and sailing maximum speed towards the turning mark set off Edmonds. All the while, Sachem was holding pace with much faster boats, which were working significantly harder. On the approach to the northern turning mark, stated to be one nautical mile east of the mid-channel buoy, it became clear that the buoy was not where it was meant to be. As we neared it on Absolutely, it was little more than 100 yards away from the mid-channel buoy. A deep draft freighter outbound from Seattle was bearing down on the fleet, and it became abundantly clear that this was not the race committee’s plan. The call came out over the radio, shortly after the first dozen boats had rounded the mark, that the race was to be abandoned due to the turning mark drifting into the shipping lane. The early talk from the race committee was to attempt to restart and run another race, but the realities of that set in quickly. After a few minutes of scrambling, it was decided that racing was done for the day. A spokesperson associated with Corinthian Yacht Club later told me, “It has become abundantly clear that the topography challenges associated with setting this specific mark, in approximately 700 feet of water, are too unpredictable to reliably use it as a turning mark. Going forward, the fleet can expect to see the position of this mark adjusted to ensure a predictable location.” I have high hopes this will solve the problem that has been reoccurring for several years in a row. At the end of it all, it was a wonderful sail back to Shilshole Bay Marina with the wind in our face and sunshine to top it off. While the turning mark incident was a frustrating end to an otherwise picture-perfect opening race, I have my hopes set on a fantastic season and cannot wait to get back on the water and line up against our friends once again.

P RTS OF CALL

Mirador Paseo Centenario, an overlook near the southwest edge of Mazatlán

Mazatlán, Mexico By Deane Hislop

Mazatlán is a central Pacific port city in the Mexican state of Sinaloa that offers a historic Spanish colonial town, established in 1531, and a tenmile-long sandy beach. The vibe is laid back and tranquilo, but there’s no lack of things to do and see, making it a must-see for world cruisers. Mazatlán, meaning “place of deer” in the Nahuatl language, was a sleepy fishing village until the early 19th century, when it became a bustling port receiving vessels from as far away as Asia and Europe. In the 1930s, tourism took hold as a major industry, but it declined as visitors moved on to the planned tourist

M

destinations in Mexico like Cancun, and Ixtapa in the ‘70s. In recent years, this architecturally rich city has undergone a renaissance thanks to a restoration movement that has helped preserve and revamp the beautiful historic district and buildings. In a world where cruisers and travelers are searching for authenticity, a local experience, and "the real Mexico," you can't do much better than Mazatlán. Picture cobblestone streets flanked with vibrantly painted colonial houses and leafy plazas with cafes, gardens, kiosks, and restaurants with tables spilling out into the street. There are beautiful churches, a historic

theater, street vendors, and murals. A sprawling malecón (boardwalk), the longest in Mexico, hugs the Pacific shoreline and is lined with beach resorts and palapa bars serving ceviche and cervaza. Pacifico brewery, one of the most popular Mexican beers, is based in Mazatlán. It’s easy to get around Mazatlán with the ample number of taxis. Besides the normal taxis, the tourist areas also have many small, white, open-topped taxis called pulmonias, which look like golf carts on steroids. They are everywhere and you won’t have to wait long for one, but make sure that you bargain about the price before hopping in.

Open Air Market

Located in the Centro Historico district since 1900, the Mercado Jose Maria Pino Suarez Market is a great shopping experience that has been an attraction for visitors and locals alike. The market is divided in sections by food types. Shoppers find aisles with fresh seafood, chicken, beef, pork, and what seems to be miles of aisles of fresh fruits and vegetables. The Central Mercado also has local cheese vendors featuring some delicious, locally produced cheeses, as well as herb and spice shops. Beyond food, the Mercado has numerous shops and vendors of T-shirts, hats and all sorts of souvenirs.

Take a Stroll

The palm-lined Malecón is a 13-mile long seawall, one of the longest in the world, that runs the length of the bay. Atop the seawall is a wide path that you will see people walking, running, and bicycling on from early morning to late at night. Along the Avenida del Mar portion of the Malecón, there are monuments and statues commemorating family, women, continuation of life, the Pacifico Brewery, pulmonia taxis, and fishermen. There is plenty of action on this boardwalk. In addition to the public art, there are bars, dance clubs, and restaurants to be discovered along the Malecón. For some high-risk excitement, watch the cliff divers at the Glorieta Rodolfo Sánchez Taboada park. They jump from heights of 20 meters into relatively shallow water. Known as clavadistas, these daring men leap off a small platform high above the crashing waves. They must time their dive very carefully to not hit the rocks.

Time Your Visit

The Carnival in Mazatlán is a late February/early March annual event. The Malecón is the site of all the fun and craziness of the Carnival. It’s reported to be the third largest in the world after Rio De Janeiro and New Orleans. There are big parades down the Malecón, large shows at the baseball stadium, fireworks and a big party at Olas Altas Beach. Since it is Mazatlán and the home of Pacifico brewery, there is plenty of cerveza flowing! Top to Bottom: Mercado Jose Maria Pino Suarez; One of Mazatlán's famous and ever-present iguanas; Una Pulmonia, which is definitely more fun than an Uber.

Rest, Eat & Drink

The Plaza Machado is the heart of the Centro Historico, with its many fine restaurants and shops encompassing the square. It is one of the loveliest plazas in all of Mexico and reminds me of the piazzas of Italy. This is a great place to sit and watch people. The plaza was once a marsh area fed by the ocean. A seawall was constructed in 1832, drying out the area and making it suitable for building. The Plaza was originally constructed in 1837 and is the oldest plaza in Mazatlán. Once referred to as Paseo de las Naranjas (Orange Tree Walk) because of the orange trees that surrounded the space, the plaza quickly became a focal point for the community and is a place where Mazatlán residents of all social classes gathered. The beautiful iron gazebo in the center of the square was built in 1870, serving as a platform for performers and further cementing the plaza as a central public place.

Keep the Faith

No day spent exploring Centro Historico would be complete without visiting the Basilica de la Inmaculada Concepcion. Construction started under Bishop Pedro Loza y Pardave in 1856, but the cathedral was not completed until 1899 due to Mazatlán’s turbulent history. In 1937, the church was elevated to the status of a basilica, which is a Roman Catholic church or cathedral given special ceremonial privileges by the Pope. Inside the Basilica, the image of the city’s patron saint, the Virgen de la Purisima Conception (Virgin of the Immaculate Conception) floats over the main altar. Overhead, soaring renaissance domes and golden gothic arches create an airy and spiritual space. The Basilica also features a unique cross-over of religions: each of its 28 stained glass windows incorporates a Star of David which were installed in gratitude for the donation of construction funds by a wealthy Mazatlán Jewish family. The Basilica also has a majestic organ built in Paris by Aristide Cavaille-Coo, who is considered one of the greatest organ builders in the nineteenth century.

Plenty to Do

Once you have completed exploring Old Mazatlán, there is still more to do and see. There are any number of tours that can take you to a 19th-century mansion, spectacular ecosystems, the Baluarte Bridge (certified by Guinness World Record as the world’s highest suspension bridge), and museums. Spend time snorkeling the islands just offshore. Explore these beautiful islands and discover the amazing creatures that inhabit them or go whale watching. Deep-sea fishing for some of the largest predators of the Pacific and bottom fishing around Mazatlán’s outer reefs, shelves, and dozens of shipwrecks lure many fishermen to these waters. Mazatlán also offers three golf courses. Whether you are an experienced golfer or just learning the game, Mazatlán golf courses will challenge you.

There is no shortage of excellent restaurants in Mazatlán. The origin of today’s Mexican cuisine is a product of the Olmec, Toltec, Aztec and Maya cultures and each region provides its unique spin on this historic cuisine. In Mazatlán, seafood is a mainstay.

Restaurant Panchos

For local flavors, it’s hard to beat Ponchos. This oceanfront establishment features seafood and Mexican cuisine. We enjoyed an appetizer of tequila cheese that was prepared tableside. Our meal of coconut shrimp and chicken mole were ever so tasty and large.

Casa 46, located in what was once the city museum, offers interesting and creative dishes with a view over Plaza Machado. It is beautiful at night when the square comes to life with craft stalls and families taking a stroll.

We had another excellent dinner at Casa Loma. What can go wrong when your waiter spontaneously breaks into song? He was delightful. Great menu, good drinks, and a wonderful ambience in a Spanish-style courtyard awaits the Casa Loma patron.

Cruisers have a few marinas to choose from in Mazatlán. The more popular are the El Cid Marina and the Marina Mazatlán. The channel into the marinas is dredged to 15 feet. El Cid Marina can accommodate vessels to 120 feet in length, and offers 30-, 50- and 100-amp power, diesel fuel, pumpout station, water, laundry, 24hour security, and full privileges at El Cid’s four resort hotels with access to championship golf course, nine tennis courts, fitness center, spa and salon, and restaurants. Marina Mazatlán is a 428-slip facility offering fuel, 30-, 50- and 100-amp power, water, secure docks, showers, garbage, pumpout, and laundry.
