The celebrated annual Seafair Weekend is upon us, Friday August 4 to Sunday August 5, and, as always, there’s plenty to see. For the uninitiated, Seafair is the culmination of the Seafair Festival summer celebration that has been a regional cultural mainstay since 1950. Highlights include hydroplane races and, of course, the Boeing Seafair Air Show that features the Blue Angels. Live music, tasty local food, and more represent

the best a Seattle summer offers. Genesee Park on Lake Washington is generally regarded as the traditional location to best experience the event, although locals have their secret spots. Additionally, boaters can reserve space on the log boom positioned right near the hydroplane courses and Blue Angels’ flight path. Check out seafair.com for more details; online reservations of log boom space are required.

Northwest Yachting presents Rutten Race The Downtown Sailing Series makes office workers in Seattle wish they were on Elliott Bay.

August in many ways announces both the height and decline of summer as boating events pack schedules and different programs come to their ends. The popular Downtown Sailing Series out of

Elliott Bay Marina on Thursday afternoons is one such example, with the culminating final race known as the Rutten Race, sponsored by Northwest Yachting magazine, on August 10. The Rutten Race, or officially the Tom Rutten Memorial Race, is named after Tom Rutten, who tragically passed away too young after prolonged illness in 2008. Rutten was one of the co-founders and organizers of the series as well as a well-known salesman for this very magazine. Like all Downtown Sailing Series races, the primary objective of the Rutten Race is to get as many people out on the water for a good time.

Over 100 boats typically turn out for the Downtown Sailing Series' Thursday night sails.

The Downtown Sailing Series races begin at 1900 hours on Thursdays during the summer, and the race course takes the fleet along the downtown Seattle waterfront before leading them back toward the marina. The race is always followed up by a BBQ with live music for both racers and observers to mingle. For more info, check out downtownsailingseries.com.

The Killer Whale Who Changed the World By Greg Van Belle

There is little I look forward to more than finally getting the anchor set after a day of cruising so I can shut down the engines, pour a cold beverage, and settle in to read a book. With the pace of life and the proliferation of electronics in our world, getting true quiet time to relax and read without distraction is increasingly rare. Boating offers the perfect scene for diving into a good book, and our boats have always had ample bookshelf space for exactly this reason. On this particular occasion, we are anchored amongst the mooring buoys at Blake Island State Park. The kids have taken the dinghy and are wandering the beach and upland trails. I am on the aft deck reading The Killer Whale Who Changed the World. Mark Leiren-Young’s account of what turned out to be the start (and effective end) of orca captivity in North America is the forgotten

history of how a single orca, accidentally captured alive in 1964, forever altered the scientific and public perception of killer whales, and started a whirlwind of scientific advancement and conservation efforts. Here in Puget Sound we have come to know our orca pods as family. We track them and celebrate their appearances, especially when they wander south toward the populated shorelines of Seattle. There are few scenarios more thrilling than happening upon a pod of orcas while sailing the San

Juans or Gulf Islands. The reality is that only a few decades ago, orcas were considered vicious, indiscriminate killers who would feast on human beings without hesitation. That perception led to vast hunting operations to cull the killer whale populations, ostensibly to save salmon runs or protect fishermen from the dangers of marauding pods of orcas. In 1964, a group of researchers and scientists sought to kill and study an orca by harpooning it in the deep water near shore on Saturna Island. The operation did not go as planned, and instead of a dead whale that they could dissect and study in a lab, they ended up with a live juvenile orca that became a public attraction in Vancouver, B.C. The would-be hunters learned quickly that orcas have compassion and intelligence beyond what anyone imagined.

Leiren-Young’s writing makes this story come alive in ways the newspaper clippings and other accounts could not. We get to know the characters – both human and cetacean – that played key roles in creating and advancing our understanding of orcas and their place in our ecosystem. Historically speaking, the shift from public support of hunting and killing orcas to campaigns against captivity was incredibly fast, though not fast enough to erase the damage done before we caught on. Reading this book while cruising the waters these whales call home adds a layer of ownership to the narrative. You are tempted to set a heading to the islands where orcas are known to hunt. Suddenly, a trip to Saturna Island to see the site of the whale hunt that started everything becomes a to-do item. We know Continued on Page 20

Orcas are found all over the world. There are populations in the North Atlantic, the Arctic, the Southern Ocean, the North Pacific, and the South Pacific. Each region has their own food preferences, a distinct way of hunting for food, and a unique dialect. These regional populations of orcas are known as ecotypes. Some experts argue each ecotype is a separate species and that we are witnessing the origin of speciation. However, for the purposes of this article, we will refer to the different groups of orcas around the world as ecotypes. There are several ecotypes in the Southern Hemisphere, while here in the Northern Hemisphere we can claim another five ecotypes with the Type 1 and Type 2 in the eastern North Atlantic. In the North Pacific, we have the offshore killer whale, the Bigg’s killer whale (also known as a transient killer whale), and perhaps the most well-known and loved by the public here in the Pacific Northwest, the resident killer whales. Each ecotype has a preferred regional cuisine, and they can differ greatly from other ecotypes even if their territories overlap. Perhaps one of the most well-known distinctions is between the resident orcas, who have a strong preference for Chinook salmon, and transient orcas, who eat marine mammals. In New Zealand, the most coveted dish for orcas is stingray. Along with these different tastes in foods comes different hunting strategies. New Zealand orcas carefully lift stingrays off the seafloor by their tails. Whales in the Antarctic use a sophisticated level of coordination by swimming in formation under a slab of ice to create a wave, causing unsuspecting seals Continued on Page 22

or penguins on top to be washed into the water. The orcas off the coast of Patagonia may have the most dramatic hunting strategy. They purposefully beach themselves to attack young sea lions, dragging them back in to the depths. Much like how humans teach their children correct ways to hunt, farm, or gather food, orcas teach their young their traditional hunting behaviors. There are many stories of adult whales “playing” with a young seal, allowing the calves to chase it around, ultimately to the seal’s demise. These cat-and-mouse sessions teach calves how to hunt. Some of this teaching would be demonstrative, but orcas are also highly vocal, and so may pass on these behaviors through vocal communication akin to an oral history or traditional knowledge. Again, like people, each ecotype has unique sounds and vocal patterns that they employ, which researchers even refer to as dialects. Not only can a biologist identify the ecotype of an orca by its physical appearance, but also by listening to their calls. These different dialects can be as unique from each other as different languages, or as colloquial as different accents. Language reinforces community relationships, and these strong familial bonds are perhaps the most recognizable of all to us. Southern resident orcas of the Pacific Northwest will travel in large pods, which can be broken down into matrilineal family units with brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, grandfathers, and most significantly grandmothers that travel, hunt,

and survive together. The grandmothers play an important role as strong leaders for their families, and this may be due to a physiological process – menopause – that has cultural and behavioral implications These older, post-menopausal females are the matriarchs of their family units (interestingly, menopause is very rare in the natural world - killer whales and short-finned pilot whales are the only two species, besides humans, in which it has been confirmed in wild individuals). For example, Granny, a member of J-pod, was the matriarch of her “village” for as long as researchers had been tracking J-pod, close to 40 years. Ivan Reiff, the owner and operator of Western Prince Whale and Wildlife Tours based in Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands, says they would often see Granny with her son, Ruffles, swimming ahead of the pod, leading the way. Granny passed away sometime in the beginning of this year, and this hole in leadership may leave the pod at risk. Perhaps a new matriarch will rise to the challenge to help guide and weather her family through future storms, both literal and metaphorical. Some of these aspects of orca culture are so strong, however, that it could be their downfall. Southern residents’ preference for Chinook and chum salmon is so strong that it appears that they do not explore alternative food sources when salmon populations are low. On the other hand, orcas demonstrate a high level of shrewdness, much to the chagrin of commercial fishermen. Some groups of or-

cas around the world pick fish off longlines, having learned to wait for a meal to come to them rather than looking for a meal themselves. In other ways, they show flexibility, ingenuity, and adaptability to their changing environment. There are some changes that orcas are less adaptable to, and while globally the species is doing well, localized ecotypes have suffered from human activity, such as pollution, overfishing, intrusive boat interactions, and, historically, the marine mammal park trade. If it is true that these ecotypes of orcas are significantly genetically distinct, then it could be that we are not only losing a local population, but perhaps a species. As we discuss how to conserve orca populations, we need to consider both environmental and cultural aspects. As discussions of orca conservation takes place, not only can we think in the typical ecological approach, but we can also think of it in terms of a loss of culture – a loss of oral history, hunting practices, traditional diets, and collective memories. Their traditions may represent personal importance to them, a sense of identity, and history that is hard to articulate to outsiders, yet irreplaceable. This sense of belonging was something apparent to me when I would encounter Americans, especially from the Pacific Northwest, when I lived in New Zealand and Australia with my husband for a few years. There was always that unspoken feeling of mutual understanding, and most importantly, I didn’t feel the need to explain myself. I wonder if a J-pod orca would feel the need to explain themselves if they were to somehow meet a killer whale in New Zealand. Would they find common interests? Would they misunderstand each other? Would they enjoy each other’s food? These experiences are part of the frustration and intrinsic value of diversity. We should ensure the future of the orcas not only for the sake of their environment, but for the sake of their irreplaceable cultural value to the natural world.

History

The Duke, Oldest Boat on the Columbia By Peter Marsh

In early 2005, two years after I moved to Astoria, I drove upriver 30 miles with my kayak, rode the ferry from Westport, Oregon, to Puget Island, Washington, and paddled up the Welcome Slough. On this quiet inlet, I passed the ruins of the Blix boat shop, an old church, and many private docks with a mix of vintage fishing and pleasure boats, until I discovered something more unusual—a working boat with fine lines that held my attention for some time. It was the 38-foot Duke, but I had no idea of its amazing history.

It wasn't until it was donated to the Columbia River Maritime Museum in 2014 that I began to learn the full story of its working life as ferry and salmon tender during a century of change on the Columbia River. That was when I learned it was built in 1902, so it was already over 100 years old when I first saw it, which must have made it the oldest wooden boat still afloat on the Columbia. The Duke was built at the Wilson boatyard in Astoria for Johanes Ostervold, a ship captain from Norway who was the first

permanent settler on Puget Island. He had begun clearing and draining his acreage in 1884 and went on to establish a fishing operation and small farm. He began horseseining for salmon and soon found he needed a bigger tender to collect the catch and deliver it to the canneries in Westport or Clifton on the Oregon shore. Unlike modern tenders, the Duke was built for speed rather than capacity, because there was no ice available to keep the fish cool in the holds. Wilson gave the boat a long shallow keel like the sailing gillnetters that were massproduced locally, but with a wide transom stern, a long straight run aft, and a beam of 12 feet. Those were the glory years of the salmon industry, with a huge fleet

of boats and canneries running around the clock. All the cannery companies had amalgamated into the Columbia River Packers Association (CRPA). The CRPA had its own boatyard where the craft used in its operations were built and maintained. Many of the fine craftsmen in the yard were immigrants who had learned their trade in Scandinavia. The first marine gasoline engines were just becoming available in the early 1900s, but Captain Ostervold chose a reliable steam engine that spun a very large propeller. This gave the Duke a good turn of speed--when the pressure was up—and the chance to compete in the races at the Astoria Regatta—a Continued on Page 26

huge annual event with thousands of spectators on bleachers. A 1910 newspaper gave an account of the Duke winning the "cannery tender handicap race" in a close finish with the other seven starters. The CRPA added the Duke to its fleet in 1921 to collect fish and deliver goods at small fishing settlements on the lower river. Without roads connecting to the outside world, small ferries were an essential part of community life. The CRPA boats kept them connected with the outside world, and the Duke served them well for the next 40 years—except when the river froze over for six weeks in 1929 and fishing families went hungry. In the 1930s, the company boat shop replaced the Duke's steam engine with a two-cylinder petrol engine from the Troyer-Fox company, based in Seattle. These motors were actually cast in As-

toria by the Astoria Iron Works, which also produced other heavy iron equipment like bollards and winches. Many boatyards closed during the Depression, but after Pearl Harbor, retired shipwrights were called back to work to help the war effort. The Astoria Marine Construction Company won contracts to build wooden minesweepers, first for the British in the spring of 1941, then for the US in 1942. Many fishermen volunteered for the Navy,

leaving their fathers and sons to keep the canneries supplied with salmon to feed the troops. The war made fishing difficult, with a strict blackout enforced near the coast and a minefield at the river mouth. A steady flow of new ships from the big Kaiser yards upstream were constantly passing on their way to the Pacific. Many pleasure craft were requisitioned for security patrols, their hulls and brightwork obscured by regulation gray paint.

In the 1950s, the Duke was updated again with a modern Chrysler Crown six-cylinder, 240-cubicinch marine engine with 60-90 horsepower, which was a favorite for motoryachts. The boat returned to the Clifton Cannery, where a gillnetter named Andrew Marincovich admired the boat's lines. He was finally able to buy it in 1974, after the CRPA had become Bumble Bee Seafoods. He moored it under the net shed close to his house and used it for

The Columbia River is still dotted with old fish processing facilities that are ripe for curious boaters interested in history to explore. The Duke once delivered to places like these in her heyday.

towing cattle barges across the channel to Tennasillahe Island, where 1,700 acres had been diked, drained, and turned into pasture land in the early 1900s. A decade later, I was cruising along the Prairie Channel in my 21-foot plywood trimaran with Ed Hajek, owner of Ballard Inflatable Boats, when Andrew Marincovich hailed us from the dock and invited us to visit. I put the helm over, rounded up close to the ladder, and Ed slipped a line around a piling. I hung on as I climbed the slippery rungs, and emerged onto the deck where time appeared to have stood still since the 1950s. The whole place was well preserved with net racks still in use and the bluestone tank intact. But there was no one to be seen. One of the earliest salmon canneries was built there in 1873, and it became home to many Croatian and Italian families who logged and fished there until the 1920s. The Portland-Astoria railway line ran along the shore, but the village had no road connection to the rest of the state until 1937, and by then the population had already dropped precipitously. It was 1958 before electricity arrived. When I walked the planked path to Andrew's house, I realized he was probably the sole full-time inhabitant. By then, the Duke was in need of some TLC, and Andrew eventually passed it on to well-known boat builder Marvel Blix on Puget Island, who began repairs with the decks. With his son Dennis and grandson Bart helping, he tore the old planking off and found that the steamed frames, knees, and timbers had been preserved by a thick coat of oil. This inspired them to keep working, and the neighbors

Bruce Robert Campbell Passes On The Pacific Northwest boating community mourns the loss of Bruce Robert Campbell, who passed away peacefully after a battle with cancer on June 25, 2017. He was a truck driver by trade but had the soul of a sailor, and his impressive resume includes past Commodore of the South Sound Sailing Society, past Commodore of the Pacific International Yachting Association, and most recently a past Commodore of the Pacific Coast Yachting Association. Bruce was also a member of the Royal Victoria Yacht Club in B.C. and the Seattle Yacht Club. “Bruce wasn’t just a sailor, he was a boater! He defined the

term boating enthusiast and gave generously to everything he was involved in, from big-boat racing to pancake breakfasts at Port Madison. Three words to describe Bruce: involved, supportive, and understanding,” says friend Dwight Jones, manager of Elliott Bay Marina. “What a great guy, he will be sorely missed. We could use a lot more Bruce Campbells in this world! “ We’re sure that if Bruce were still with us, he’d be out on the water this August living the Pacific Northwest boating lifestyle. In lieu of condolences, readers are encouraged to donate to a charity of their choosing.

Seattle Boat Show adds Bell Harbor

ES T O N S S E N I S BU

39th Boats Afloat Show Arrives The 39th annual Lake Union Boats Afloat Show of Seattle is almost upon us, and anticipation is building for industry insiders and eager boaters alike. The four-day trade show runs from Thursday, September 14, through Sunday, September 17 and always features a staggering array of ski boats, pontoon trawlers, sailboats, cruisers, megayachts, and, of course, dozens of exhibitor booths with the latest gadgets. The event is organized by the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA) and held at Chandler’s Cove in South Lake Union. A notable aspect of the

upcoming 2017 show is the fourday format. Traditionally, the show operates under a five-day format, and this year marks the first four-day show. Additionally, with the future of the area still in question due to land development plans, it’s uncertain how the Lake Union Boats Afloat Show will manifest in the coming years. This year could be the last Lake Union Boats Afloat Show as we know it. Details are still unfolding at the time of this writing, but it’s wise to stay tuned to the website for details (boatsafloatshow. com). Hours are 11:00 to 18:00

hours on weekdays (Thursday, Sept. 14 and Friday, Sept.15) and 10:00 to 18:00 hours on the weekend (Saturday, Sept. 16 and Sunday, Sept. 17). We’ll see you there.

Ranger Tugs on display at the 2016 Boats Afloat Show.

The Seattle Boat Show, January 26 to February 3, 2018, will be expanded to include a third location at the Bell Harbor Marina. The show, produced by the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) and Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA), has traditionally displayed boats at CenturyLink Field Event Center and South Lake Union and will now also include new and brokerage boats at Bell Harbor Marina. “We’re fortunate to have this opportunity to continue to grow the Seattle Boat Show as a premier destination event by expanding to the Port of Seattle’s Bell Harbor Marina on the Seattle waterfront,” said NMTA President George Harris. Exhibitor applications to display at the 2018 Seattle Boat Show in Bell Harbor Marina and CenturyLink Field Event Center are available now (see seattleboatshow. com). Applications for the venue at South Lake Union, hosting 100+ vessels, will be available in mid-October. Tickets for the 2018 Seattle Boat Show, the largest boat show on the West Coast, go on sale December 1, 2017.

NWY teams up with Cascadian Air Northwest Yachting magazine has over 30 years of Pacific Northwest marine journalism and storytelling history under its belt. Commonly known as “the big one” due to its large print format, Northwest Yachting is proudly old school in a lot of ways. We’d rather call than text and get on the water than follow Twitter feeds, if you catch our drift. But the 21st century does have a lot of great tools to offer an independent publication like ours, and the rise in visually based online storytelling has changed the way the world is entertained and informed, all from the palms of our hands with smartphones. It is in the spirit of embracing the new that we are thrilled to announce our partnership with Cascadian Air, a Pacific Northwest based videography, photography, and digital marketing company that specializes in aerial drone technology. Founders and owners Cory Lang and Dan Kasmar are already flying on NorthwestYachting assignments and are hungry for more. “We're definitely excited!” says Cory Lang. “As people who have grown up in the Pacific Northwest amidst the boats, marine culture, and everything so unique to this area, launching Cascadian Air's

partnership with Northwest Yachting is a thrilling prospect to build upon. We're looking forward to showcasing so much of what the region has to visually offer with our endeavors.” Cory Lang has over 15 years of graphic and web design, marketing, advertising, and everythingin-between experience. He has been professionally flying drones for the past few years. Dan Kasmar is the other half of Cascadian Air and a well-known Tacoma native. Previously an owner of Five Mile Skateboards, his knowledge of industrial manufacturing processes, industry marketing, and overall aptitude for launching a concept from idea to reality are some of his touted strengths. “When you boil it down, it comes to this: we're passionate, out-of-the-box thinkers whose goal is to achieve the absolute best with what's at hand. Moreover, with a keen focus on legalities and the ever changing tide of everything UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) related, our primary focus is on the proper deployment and operation of services to ensure compliance.” Keep an eye out for our team productions, both advertorial and editorial, on our YouTube channel “Northwest Yachting.”

Freedom Boat Club is opening a second Washington location in Tacoma, with a Grand Opening scheduled for Saturday, August 12. Free boat rides, as well as food and drink vendors, will be present for the festivities in the heart of Tacoma’s blossoming waterfront. Freedom Boat Club is an alternative to boat ownership where the company provides the boats, insurance, maintenance, and more while the members pay a one-time fee and monthly dues to enjoy unlimited access to the fleet. Freedom Boat Club has a broad selection of boats including cruisers, deck boats, pontoon boats, and fishing boats with multiple loca- Shawn Ottenbreit tions around Puget Sound and around the country. The Tacoma opening is a dream come true for location owner and local boater Shawn Ottenbreit. “I am thrilled to be opening the Tacoma Freedom Boat Club," says Ottenbreit.

Going somewhere? Pontoon boats like these are common in the Freedom Boat Club fleet. US Coast Guard-certified captains. We will make sure you can experience that dream and feel confident out on the water,” says Ottenbreit, a veteran of the cruising grounds of the Inside Passage from Fox Island to Alaska. “The expansive protected waters are some of the most beautiful and vibrant bodies of water in the world. With Freedom Boat Club, I can now share my passion for Pacific Northwest boating with our members. I am also very excited to be working with my counterparts Nick Hooge, owner Freedom Boat Club Seattle, and Sandy Purdon, owner Freedom Boat Club Vancouver, British Columbia, to bring more oppor-

tunities to enjoy these waters to our collective members.” Ottenbreit’s excitement for the Tacoma location is also in no small part due to the area’s offerings. “The city of Tacoma has done some amazing development of the waterfront and Thea Foss Waterway. We are also very excited to be partnering with the Foss Harbor Marina to offer extensive amenities and services to our members.” To become a member, Ottenbreit suggests texting your email address to 253-414-0155 or call toll free at 833-4MY-BOAT to arrange a tour of the club and fleet. There is a one-time membership fee and monthly dues to join.

Hampton 650 Pilothouse The 2017 Hampton 650 Pilothouse is one of Hampton Yacht Group’s most touted luxury motoryacht designs, and it’s not hard to understand why. With tons of space, a sleek modern look, and an emphasis on cruising in style, the 650 Pilothouse has plenty to offer. The features of the exterior are a good place to start, with a covered flybridge, covered cockpit table with transom seating near the aft swim step, wide sidedecks for safe walking, and cushioned foredeck lounge space. The flybridge dinette and generous seating arrangement will likely be the heart of the party on nice days. An adjustable table, helm bench, jump seat, wet bar, refrigerator, and BBQ area are featured on the flybridge. The deck, deckhouse, and flybridge are cored with high strength Divinycell. A large set of NanaWall folding glass doors act as a gateway between the aft cockpit and the cabin. The palatial interior has all the comforts of home, with a huge

salon with furnishings and entertainment center that houses a retractable 42-inch flat screen TV with a Bose surround sound system. A short set of steps forward lead up to the full galley and pilothouse, as well as more seating. Premium appliances are complemented by the owner’s choice of Corian or granite counterops and other quality fixtures. The pilothouse features two Pompanette Platinum Series helm chairs with stainless steel pedestals. For navigation electronics, the Garmin 7600 Series is standard and inclues radar, chart plotter, touch screen monitors, autopilot, GPS, two VHF radios, AIS, and magnetic compass. In short, the skipper shouldn’t be in want. Farther forward, a set of steps lead down to the three spacious staterooms and three enclosed heads. The wall-towall master suite is simply massive with an island-style super berth with en suite head (complete with walk-in shower stall).

The VIP berth also has an island-style berth. Built-in dressers, nightstands, and vanity spaces are featured in each of the three staterooms. As far as power is concerned, the 650 Pilothouse is driven by two 1,000-horsepower Caterpillar C-12.9 direct drive inboard diesel engines. The engine room is quite large, with standing headroom for good access points. There are four stations with electronic controls aboard for skippering flexibility. Two Northern Lights generators with a sound shield should give ample power for a full crew while underway. Feel like cruising in style this summer? The luxurious Hampton 650 Pilothouse is currently available from local dealer Hampton Yacht Group in Seattle. You can learn more or contact the dealership at hamptonyachtgroup.com. Priced at $2,950,000.

Selene 49 Selene Yachts Northwest, already known for their sturdy trawlers, isn’t sitting still, and the new 2017 Selene 49 now plying local waters is proof. Billed as the “next generation” of the Selene 48 model, the Selene 49 features many tweaks to the design that should make it all the more appealing to motor cruisers. The Selene 49 has a very traditional look from the outside, complete with large flybridge and mast/hydraulic boom crane combination that looks very

workboat-esque. The flybridge layout incorporates an L-shaped settee and table, a bar/sink/BBQ unit, and space for tender stowage. The hull itself is deeper than the Selene 48 and is meant to carve through the water. The interior is large and spacious for the long cruising days ahead. Many of the evolutionary tweaks of the design affect the engine. Headroom for the engine room has increased by a whole foot and the larger Cummins QSL 9.0 330-horsepower engine is stan-

dard. The manufacturer claims that at 1,800 rpm, the Selene 49 has a cruising speed of 8.5 knots for a range of 2,000 nautical miles.

Bracewell 41 Waterline Boats LLC is proud to announce their new Bracewell line, and the 2017 Bracewell 41 has recently arrived at their Seattle docks. The Bracewell 41 looks like a modern-styled Pacific Northwest trawler that’s ready to cruise. The Bracewell 41 will especially appeal to fans of the Camano 41, for the Bracewell 41 is essentially a modern upgrade to the original design. The exterior features a prominent open flybridge with a covered cockpit aft and large foredeck. The flybridge has both a full nav station and seating for gatherings. A fixed swim step will be appreciated by paddle sports enthusiasts or swimmers during the summer. The interior is quite spacious and generously lit by the many large windows. Family-style seating sits immediately to starboard upon entry to

the cabin, while the full galley and pilothouse are located forward. The cook and the captain will be working side-by-side. A set of stairs forward takes the visitor to the two enclosed berths. The master suite forward has a large island-style berth. As far as performance is concerned, the Bracewell 41 comes with a Cummins QSB 6.7 480-horsepower engine. The manufacturer

is quick to tout that the hullform is said to feature a low center of gravity. The yacht can allegedly cruise effectively at speeds between 8 and 17 knots. All in all, the 2017 Bracewell 41 looks like she’ll be right at home in the Pacific Northwest. For more information on the 2017 Bracewell 41, check out waterlineboats. com. Current price is $499,388.

Half speed boat and half cruiser, this build has many features from both schools of thought. The large swim step with aft bench-style seating and the sports-car helm say speedboat, while the dinette galley that converts into an ondeck berth/sundeck says cruiser. Seating is prominent just about everywhere in the cockpit and the foredeck is large enough for sunbathing. Access to the foredeck is via a set of integrated steps forward near the helm.

Dehler 34 The new German-made Dehler 34 is making quite the splash as it racks up recognitions and awards this year, and now this sporty performance cruiser is available in the Pacific Northwest. While the original Dehler 34 debuted in 1984, the design has evolved with many modern features sailors from racing competitors to cruisers will appreciate. With a 17.02-meter-high competition rig to maximize sail area, a Judel/Vrolijk & Co.-designed performance hull, and an optional deeper racing keel option, the Dehler 34 definitely has an emphasis on speed. The twin helm layout of the cockpit and mainsheet traveler that leads all lines back to the helm are also notable sailing characteristics. What’s fun about the Dehler 34 is that each one has a high level of customization. A lightweight carbon rig may

beckon the racer, while the foldable swim step and cockpit teak table may attract the more cruiser-minded. The interior is quite nice, especially with the generous lighting thanks to large windows and retraceable top. A full galley, nav table, foldable seating near the stepped mast, and more features are available. Two cabins, one forward and one aft, have

berths for the crew. An enclosed head is also featured. Thanks to the extensive custom options and the highly versatile design, the 2017 Dehler 34 can fill most roles a sailor could ask of a yacht this size. If you’re interested, contact the local dealer, JK3 Yachts, and check their website, jk3yachts.com, for more information and pricing.

My *Foldable* Canoe MyCanoe 2.5 || $1,290.00 Setting the anchor at beautiful, remote locations in the Pacific Northwest is often just the beginning of an exploration, and canoes are a great vehicle to discover your surroundings. They can be loaded up with people, pets, and gear for a nice day paddle, but who honestly has space for a whole canoe on deck? Enter the MyCanoe 2.5 from MyCanoe, an “origami” folding canoe that can stow into a settee and be folded into a full-size 14.5-foot canoe in 10 minutes.

When folded, the MyCanoe 2.5 fits into a case that’s 37 by 8 by 25 inches in dimension and weighs 52 pounds. When deployed, the MyCanoe can carry two occupants and a recommended load of 400 pounds. There are a variety of attachment options for the seats as well, so you can adapt to just about any scenario. The hull is made of a double-layered, marine-grade, custommanufactured polypropylene that looks tough enough. An optional stabilizer kit

MyCanoe 2.5 also has a variety of accessories, including a stabilizer kit, shown here with inflatable stabilizers and pump included. may be a good idea for those aiming for rougher or open waters. MyCanoe also makes a plethora of accessories as well as other models like the MyCanoe Plus and MyDinghy. Living the voyageur life just got a whole lot more portable. Check out oricanoe.com for more details. The MyCanoe 2.5 is priced at $1,290.

Notable Tote

EQPD Last Bags || $49.00 - $69.00 Good looking, useful, endlessly versatile, durable, and unique; it’s what we all aspire to. Now startup design/manufacturing firm EQPD (pronounced “Equipped”) of tiny Twisp, Washington, has incorporated all your admirable qualities into a simple multi-purpose tote bag that is completely waterproof, UV stable, and bleach safe. Dubbed the “Last Bag,” this handy tote is made from the same 18-oz. vinyl coated polyester fabric used for truck tarps and whitewater rafts. EQPD makes the bag to order, using #70 bonded nylon thread, high-density polyethylene plastic to reinforce the handles, and military-grade hardware. The Last Bag features a seamless folded bottom and exposed side seams, allowing the bag to stand upright and open for easy loading and unloading. Once the tote has done its work, it folds flat like a paper bag for storage and travel. EQPD designed the Last Bag to provide customers with a product that lasts longer, eliminating the need to frequently replace the item and therefore reducing the use of resources. The manufacturer guarantees this bag will deliver a “useful life,” and says they will make it right if your bag doesn’t do so. Take a shopping trip to eqpdgear.com and select from a generous array of colors. You will want either the 17-inch (size of a classic brown grocery bag) or the 21-inch, which has twice the capacity. Next, choose a standard handle or shoulder strap. Your custom tote will be created in about two weeks at a cost of about $49 to $69.

Space Age Paddle

Sup ATX Carbon Fiber Paddles || $155.00+ There’s plenty to love when it comes to carbon fiber. The material is lighter than plastic and tougher than steel, when produced properly, and is featured prominently on famous racing sailboats around the world. So it’s no surprise that carbon fiber paddles for paddleboards are emerging on the market, the Sup ATX paddles being a notable example. Sup ATX’s line of carbon fiber paddleboard paddles come in both a “pro” version with a fixed length and an adjustable version. The pro is the original paddle that features a smaller blade and a round medium flex shaft that are meant to reduce paddler fatigue. The adjustable can accommodate paddlers from 4’6” to 6’2” tall. The pro weighs 18 ounces, while the adjustable is 22 ounces. What’s more, the paddles won’t break the bank. Check out supatx.com for details. The pro is $155 and the adjustable is $195 (on sale at the time of this writing).

MOB Strobe

SpotMe Strobe || $67.81

As much as we love open water, we must respect it. Small craft mariners need extraordinary gear for extraordinary situations. Such gear is not always bulky or costly; the best designs can have the greatest impact on safety. From the UK’s Exposure Lights comes the miniature, waterproof SpotMe Strobe, meant to help sailors, paddlers, and surfers attract attention if they are in difficulty. The SpotMe strobe has a high intensity, easily activated, 250-lumen SOS beacon. It is said to be waterproof to IPX7 rating at 1-meter depth and has five hours strobe duration. Exposure Lights says the SpotMe’s focused beam is visible for one kilometer in daylight and three nautical miles at night. Made in the UK, the SpotMe is constructed of high strength, lightweight, aluminum casing and powered by a CR123 lithium battery. This compact strobe is worn in an easy access storage holster that attaches to a harness, buoyancy vest, or garment loop. The strobe is activated with a single hand squeeze operation, making it easy to operate with cold, gloved fingers. Offered with a two-year warranty, the SpotMe weight just 35 grams—light enough for the most weight-conscious dinghy racer. Order direct from the manufacturer at Exposurelights.com for about $67.81 USD, including shipping.

Find Your Bunk Gatorbak Trailer Bunk Covers || $69.64+ Gatorbak LLC’s synthetic trailer bunk covers provide durable protection for your boat and trailer. The popular do-it-yourself replacement covers eliminate soggy, smelly, damaging carpet on your trailer bunks, and improves durability, functionality, and appearance of your trailer. Gatorbak bunk covers are made with a proprietary blend of synthetic materials, and were formerly sold in just grey, black, and white. Gatorbak now offers clear bunk covers with optional customizable color LED lighting. Imagine the ease of loading your boat in low-light condi-

tions—just look out for your lighted bunks and follow the runway lights! Waterproof BlueWaterLED™ light strips can be added to trailers, lifts, and docks, even rod lockers. Match the color of your boat, your favorite team, or favorite color combos. Look for how-to tutorials and a step by step instructional video on gatorbak.com. You may want to keep in mind the benefits of eliminating shaggy carpet. According to Gatorbak, their covers prevent invasive species transfer because they don’t harbor spores and organisms that are trapped in carpet.

Nor do Gatorbak bunk covers trap sand and grit, which scratch gelcoat and metal hulls. Concerned with gelcoat blistering? Gatorbak covers dry quicker than carpet, eliminating a source of water transfer. Individual clear bunk covers are available from Gatorbak.com for $69.64 to $109.69, depending on size. Add your BlueWaterLED light strips in pairs for $49.99 to $570.00 (Gatorbak.com), with lifetime warranty. Lights are available in amber, blue, green, orange, red, and white.

Towable Ice Cream

Sea Maid Ice Cream Maker || $39.95 Why bring your own ice cream on the boat when you can make it on the go? The newest iteration of the towable Sea Maid Ice Cream Maker from Tacoma Propeller is here to help. The inventive device can mix up to 12.5 ounces of ice cream per batch in about 20 minutes. The hard plastic casing features a propeller-like design to spin from a tow line behind the boat while underway. Remember those ice cream makers that you’d normally crank manually for half an hour? Well, this maker operates with the same

principle, except the spinning propeller design does the work for you. Just mix cream and desired flavors into the metal mixing container, fill the plastic chamber with ice and half a cup of rock salt, attached a tow line to the swivel, and throw overboard for 20-25 minutes. When you pull it back in, you’re in for fresh homemade ice cream. Word of caution, the mixing container can pop off if you tow it too fast (8 knots or more) like in our first test. Making sure the canister is attached securely and towing at lower speeds should avoid that problem. The new Sea Maid Ice Cream Maker is available at tacomapropeller.com. They come in both red and blue colors and are $39.95 apiece. There’s currently a buy two-get-one-free special for $99.95.

Tree Power

Kanberra Gel || $48.64 Kanberra Gel is an all-natural blend of tea tree oils straight from Down Under that can be a boater’s best friend when it comes to taking on mildew and mold. The gel is released into the air through evaporation; simply place the container on a flat surface and remove the lid. Add the diffuser top in order to move away from “shock mode” to maintenance and protection modes that keep the boat fresh for 30 to 90 days. The Kanberra Gel leaves no scent, as it is not masking bad smells but instead killing invasive mold and the like on contact. Kanberra Gel

comes in a variety of sizes and application methods, from the classic gel containers, sprays, and wipes. See more at kanberragel. com. An eight-ounce Kanberra Gel purifier, recommended for boats up to 40 feet, is $48.64 at Fisheries Supply.

Spread the Love Spreader Light 12

The Australian company Aqualuma has unveiled their LED Spreader Light 12 (SL12), surface-mount lighting that looks ready to light up the night. The Brilliant White color scheme is reported by the manufacturer to have a color temperature of 8,000 degrees Kelvin and dish out 2,000 lumens. The compact light array of the SL12 is available in flush and bracket-mount versions that vary dimensions by fractions of inches. They are both 5 3/4” long. The SL12 can accept both 12- and 24-volt direct current (DC) power and is reverse-polarity protected. The manufacturer claims that the SL12 draws about two amps at 12-volt DC. What’s more, the SL12 has a built-in thermo control to monitor heat. The light array automatically powers down if left on during excessively hot days. The SL12 is made of marine-grade aluminum and powder coated with stainless steel or white bezel. The lens is made of a scratchresistant polymer. The cherry on top is a two-year warranty. Locate your local dealer and find more information at aqualuma.com, prices vary between $500 and $550.

Forward View Garmin Panoptix PS51-TH Many, dare we say most, motoryachts these days feature some echosounder array, and there remains an ever-growing diversity of units on the market from major manufacturers like Garmin, Simrad, Furuno, and more. While most modern yachts feature traditional echosounder systems that are either multibeam side scan and/or CHIRP in nature, forwardfacing sonar is becoming more common with advances in technology. Enter the Garmin Panoptix PS51-TH, the company’s newest forward-facing sonar unit ripe for Pacific Northwest summer voyages. The Panoptix forward-facing sonar is a thru-hull, multi-beam transducer that allows a skipper to view the seafloor ahead of a vessel in real time. As it turns out, seeing what’s in front of the boat is pretty useful compared to seeing what is directly below like most units. With front facing sonar, one can see approaching shallow water obstacles to avoid and fish signals to chase. The narrow horizontal beam swath of 20 degrees is meant to look dead ahead, with a reported 100 feet of forward range. The Panoptix is said by the manufacturer to display the water column and sea floor up

54 NORTHWEST YACHTING || AUGUST 2017

to 300 feet in depth. For those interested in the specs, the Panoptix operates at a 417 kHz frequency (relatively high for resolution feedback at shallow depths) with a 96-watt power output. The transducer is mounted via a two-inch stainless steel thru-hull mount. Other features include a built-in Attitude Heading Reference System (AHRS) sensor to help with motion stabilization in rougher conditions. The Panoptix also displays depth and temperature data because, why not? Of course, the transducer is compatible with the suite of Garmin chartplotters across the Garmin Marine Network. It is easy to imagine scenarios, both safety-related and recreational, where seeing what’s coming under the water could be beneficial. Whether you are navigating in a shallow bay with hidden rocks in the San Juans, dodging deadheads while underway at night, or chasing down schools of albacore offshore, having a Panoptix PS51-TH aboard could make the difference. If interested, you can learn more, order online, or locate your nearest dealer at buy.garmin.com. The unit is listed at $1,499.99.

Smart Beanies Incoming? L.L.Bean Pathfinder Lighted Beanie For much of the year, boaters in the Pacific Northwest have a trusty beanie on hand to keep the ole noggin warm and dry. Most of us never think to revisit the tried-and-tested design of the beanie, for its simplicity and utility may be one of its greatest attributes. L.L.Bean decided to blaze the way in beanie development with their Pathfinder Lighted Beanie that incorporates LED lighting in the design of the hat. Two LEDs face forward for distance lighting, while two are angled downward at 55 degrees to illuminate close-up objects. Basically, two LEDS forward to view the anchor rhode scope and two LEDs downward to guide your hands while you mess with the windlass. The hat itself is made of 93% polyester fleece and 7% spandex for a little stretch. The total light output is 48 lumens with an ideal beam distance of 42 feet. The lights are powered by four coin-cell batteries (included) with a reported runtime of 68 hours. Is the Pathfinder Lighted Beanie a harbinger for the “smart beanies” of the future? Perhaps a version with red light for nighttime cruising is next followed with integrated GPS. We wait with baited breath. For more info, check out llbean.com. Priced at $24.99 to $29.95 depending on color.

PERFEC T LINES Words and Photos: Ivan Reiff, owner of Western Prince Whale Watching Company [westernprince.com]

Orca Family Values In September, 2013 my friend Simon and I embarked on a nineday adventure to the Great Bear Rainforest on Neptune (a 22-foot Zodiac Hurricane). Departing Maple Bay, BC, we traversed the Strait of Georgia, cruised through Johnstone Strait, rounded Cape Caution, and eventually wound our way up to Gil Island. Our adventure was full of incredible wildlife encounters: bow riding Pacific white sided dolphins, playful northern resident killer whales on a foggy morning, mating gray whales at Cape Caution, more humpbacks than we could count, and fin whales in Camano Sound. The encounter that sticks with me most was the T2Cs (Bigg’s killer whales) near Campbell River on the way back down, pictured here in front of the vessel Content. The T2Cs are a special group of killer whales. T2C2 (T2C’s second offspring) is a 12-year-old male with severe scoliosis. He swims with a slow robotic motion and I am sure he is unable to hunt effectively. Yet his family provides for him, and the social interactions I have observed are some of the tenderest and affectionate I have seen among killer whales.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Bring the Heat! Summer is cooking and the fishing in parts of the Northwest has been as hot as the weather. Salmon, tuna, crab… it’s on for those who are out on the water. These are the long, warm, short-sleeved days that make chasing fish

worthwhile. Chinook salmon are the big draw in August, and big they can be. Kings as we call them in the States, or “springs” as they are referred to in Canada, can reach 100 pounds. Although the chances to hook (and land) a behemoth of those proportions are one in a million, catching a 30-pound Tyee-class Chinook is very possible this time of year. Many spots in our local waters and beyond still have large fish coming through. You don’t have a shot if your line isn’t in the water, so do your research and go fish! Every odd year, pink salmon return to Northwest rivers and massive schools will be swimming in the salt on their way to spawn. You don’t need downriggers or a fancy fishing machine to catch these fish. Casting pink Buzz Bomb type lures at jumping schools can be a productive blast. They aren’t the top table fare in the sea, but if they are cleaned and iced immediately, they’ll fill a smoker for treats for the in-laws and neighbors. Sockeye are great eating and should still be around in early August, too. These salmon are more difficult to catch in the salt. As they are krill eaters and schooling fish, slow shallow

trolling using a bunch of flashers and smaller offerings can be successful. However, the last time I targeted them, I caught a nice Chinook on sockeye gear at 60 feet, then dropped a large spoon down to 120 feet looking for kings and caught a sockeye. It’s fishing, go figure. Towards the end of August, coho salmon will make their appearance. Also known as silvers, these fish are aggressive biters and crazy fighters. You don’t have to use any advanced techniques on this silver horde. Hootchies and spoons, 36 inches to 48 inches behind a flasher, will work. Try to downrigger troll a bit faster and a bit shallower than for Kings. But if you mark fish on your sonar, drop down and go get ‘em. Nothing beats a jumping, cartwheeling coho on the end of your line for grins! I get a serious hankering for Dungeness crab in these summer months. Find a sandy bottom next to some structure in 30 to 60 feet of water and drop the pots. I like to use my salmon heads and carcasses for bait. The crabs love them and nothing goes to waste. Try crabbing on a mellow flood tide for a few hours during the day if you can. Sometimes this can be more productive than leaving pots overnight. Some folks think their crabs were taken, but really the critters just climbed out after the bait was gone. And some, who are convinced their pots were stolen, are just victims of strong tidal currents that sweep the traps away. As always, make sure and double check the regulations for the area you plan to crab or fish. Updates and rule changes will be posted on the websites of governing agencies. Know before you go! Learn and you won’t get burned! There are a host of events to keep the competitive angler busy throughout August. The weekend of August 12, I’ll be fishing the Washington Tuna Classic in Westport with Team Lindell Yachts. That same weekend the Juan De Fuca Salmon Derby in Pedder Bay, B.C. takes place. The next weekend of August 19 and 20, we’ll head to Richmond, B.C. to fish the Vancouver Chinook Classic with Team Parker Boats Northwest. Farther west on the same dates will be the Summer Chinook shootout in Port Renfrew, B.C.. All these Canadian tournaments are great events that raise money for great causes. Speaking of great causes, we’ll Continued on Page 94

A lifelong resident of Washington, Kevin Klein has been on the rivers, lakes, and salt waters of the Pacific Northwest since conception. In 2004 Kevin relocated to the San Juan Islands and began to write numerous articles for outdoor magazines and contribute to websites dedicated to fishing. Kevin can be found promoting sport fishing and giving seminars on boating and fishing techniques. A passion became a career when Kevin joined Inside Passage Yacht Sales as their Northwest sports and fishing representative. On any given day you may find Kevin and his wife Vicki, also an accomplished angler, plying the waters of the Northwest, spreading the word of the benefits of the boating and fishing lifestyle.

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

A Crisis is a Terrible Thing to Waste Just a few short months ago, word trickled out from the Department of Licensing (DOL) that thousands of boaters would receive letters letting them know that they had noncompliant Hull Identification Numbers (HINs). Troubled by this development, the leading boating associations, Recreational Boating Association of Washington (RBAW), Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA), and Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA), called a time-out and met with DOL to figure out what exactly this nonsense was all about. If you own a boat, you probably know that there are two places for your HIN. One is hidden and one is in plain sight. Unfortunately over time, manufacturers have not spent enough time conforming to the US Coast Guard standards. This lack of detail spurred the Coast Guard to work with the states’ licensing department to standardize all numbers. On the ground, what that has meant is that about 30,000 Washington state boaters have received letters alerting them that their HINs are noncompliant. Thankfully, your boating associations are working with these agencies and others to ensure that you can comply and get on the water as quickly as possible. At this point, I should say that if you haven’t received one of these missives from DOL, stop reading and go boating. On the other hand, if you have a letter, here is some background and suggested next steps to take. First, here’s the background (special thanks to the RBAW website, rbaw.org): The HIN is a unique, 12-digit number assigned by the manufacturer to vessels built after 1972. The Coast Guard is beginning to enforce new federal standards for HINs. The vast majority of vessels registered in Washington have HIN numbers that comply with the new standards. If your vessel’s HIN does not comply, the Washington DOL should have sent you a letter in late March with instructions. Individuals who received this notification will not be able to register, renew, or title a vessel until the HIN is updated. A vessel with a noncompliant HIN cannot be renewed online. Vessel owners with compliant HINs can renew normally, either online or in person at the County Auditor’s office or a subagent. If you did get a letter, you must visit the Auditor’s office or other Vehicle Licensing Office in order to renew your registration. The office will generate a HIN that is compliant with the new standards and order you a new Certificate of Ownership (title). Working on one specific case, the easiest fix is to ensure that the HIN digits on the letter match the HIN digits on the vessel. I have learned that there are many cases where the boat is compliant but at some time in the life of the

60 NORTHWEST YACHTING || AUGUST 2017

boat a typo was inserted into the HIN (L instead of 1, S instead of 5, etc.). Before replacing a noncompliant HIN, boaters should check that that there isn’t a typo causing the supposed noncompliance by checking the DOL letter against the actual boat. If the two (letter versus boat HIN) do not match, bring a photo or rubbing of the current HIN with you to the Vehicle Licensing Office, and your record will be updated (at no cost – thank you NMTA, RBAW, and NYBA for lobbing successfully to have DOL waive that fee). If a boater is issued a new HIN, he/she will need to update the HIN number on the vessel to comply with the new Coast Guard requirements. Under these new requirements, two identical HINs must be permanently affixed to a vessel that has a noncompliant HIN. It is recommended that the original HIN not be removed, covered up, or otherwise defaced. Rather, the new HIN should be applied adjacent to the original HIN (there is confusion on this, however, but this is the recommend practice as of May 4, 2017). Boaters must use methods (such as decals, engraved plates, embossing) that permanently fix the HIN to the vessel. These instructions are included in the letter received by vessel owners who will have to update their HINs. If you have any questions, please review the material on the DOL website at dol.wa.gov, contact the DOL Customer Service Center at 360-902-3770 or CustomerCare@dol.wa.gov, or contact your local subagent office for more information (360-378-2161). George Price from DOL (GPrice@DOL.WA.GOV) is my point person on this issue. Also, RBAW has done a great job with their website covering this issue (rbaw.org) I’ll give Wade Alonzo, Washington’s Boating Law Administrator, the last word here; “This has been a complex issue, and difficult for some of those who were affected, but I think a silver lining is that we brought stakeholders together with the Department of Licensing in productive discussions that went a long way toward fixing problems. I am pleased that we (the State Parks Boating Program) were able to help facilitate those conversations and grateful for NMTA, RBAW, Pacific Maritime Title, and Marine Documentation Service, Inc. that made them productive.”

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Hearty Sides for Summer Evenings We all strive to stay outdoors and enjoy the nice weather, especially after such a long winter. The salmon are running, crab season is open, and the farmers’ markets are flourishing. Our sailing and boating trips are all about spending time with family and friends. Naturally, we’re doing a lot of entertaining, and it’s nice to have some hearty side dishes ready to go. Side dishes can be stashed in the freezer or made earlier in the week so that they are ready for the weekend. Dinner isn’t difficult if the dishes are quick and easy to assemble; such as grilled fish, a tossed salad, and a light pasta dish. If you prepare some delicious side dishes in advance during the week, then freeze the dishes, and transport them to the boat (or if you have a boat large enough for a deep freeze, keep them on the boat), then you are ready for some long tasty trips! I don’t know what it is about being on the water in the sun and weather, but I am always hungry at night and crave some type of rich delicious side dish to go with my grilled steak, or a warm, cheesy, layered-potato dish to go with the rest of dinner. The warm dishes that come to mind include a layered potato gratin that can be baked, cooled, wrapped tight, and frozen for reheat. Make two; have one for dinner warm out of the oven, then freeze the second

for a later dinner. Or possibly a cauliflower gratin made the same way as macaroni and cheese, with a rich béchamel sauce and cheese, could satisfy. The only difference is the cauliflower instead of the pasta. A large batch of béchamel can be made, and half can be used for the cauliflower dish and the other half for a mac and cheese. Once both are assembled, they can be frozen immediately for reheating later. Another dish, similar to mac and cheese, is a Gnocchi alla Romana made with cooked semolina (a grain similar to polenta) that is cooked, poured into a baking sheet, cooled, and cut into shapes that are layered in a baking dish with cheese; then it can be frozen for later use. All these dishes require only 30 minutes to an hour of reheating, which will give you enough time to assemble the rest of dinner. Other recipes included below are for two types of gnocchi-style dumplings that can be assembled, frozen, and reheated in a dish of tomato sauce covered with cheese. It is nice to have some fun variations to dinner, we all get in a rut at home, so these recipes are a good way to expand your knowledge and prepare some new dishes. Regardless, the best part of it all is that we are out enjoying the amazing weather and the reason we live in the great Pacific Northwest. Get cruising and savor summer!

Spinach & Ricotta Dumplings in Tomato Sauce 2 cups tightly packed cups of cooked spinach, (about 3 – 4 bunches blanched) 2 cups ricotta cheese, Italian style 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated fine, plus additional cheese for garnish 2-3 egg yolks

/2 cup all-purpose flour 1-2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoons freshly cracked black pepper Freshly grated nutmeg to taste 1/ cup Italian parsley, rough chopped 4 1

Combine the cooked spinach and ricotta in a mixing bowl. Add the parmesan, two egg yolks, and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Then add half of the flour. Using your hands or a rubber spatula, mix until just blended. Do not over work. To test if your dumpling is the right consistency, drop a dollop of the mixture from a soup spoon into boiling water. If the dumpling starts to break apart, add another quarter cup of flour and another egg yolk. Scoop heaping tablespoons of the mixture and drop into rapidly boiling salted water. As the dumplings float, allow to cook for one minute. Remove the dumplings and add to a sauté pan filled with sage and brown butter sauce. Gently coat the dumplings with butter. Garnish with fresh cracked pepper, parmesan, and Italian parsley. Once the dumplings are blanched they can be frozen and reheated in sauce.

Tomato Sauce /2 cup olive oil 3 cloves garlic, smashed 1 onion, diced medium 1

Two 28-ounce cans Italian tomatoes Large pinch of red pepper flakes (optional) 2 teaspoons fine sea salt

Freshly cracked pepper to taste Sprig of Italian parsley Sprig of basil (optional)

Combine the olive oil and garlic in a large deep saucepan and cook over medium-low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring or swirling occasionally, until the garlic is deeply colored and fragrant, add onions, season with salt and pepper, leave to sweat on low. Add the tomatoes and stir well. Turn heat up to medium, get the sauce simmering at a gentle pace, not aggressively, and simmer for half an hour. Stir from time to time. When the sauce is finished and has thickened slightly, remove from heat and press through a food mill, or puree using an immersion blender (not too much!) until the large pieces are gone. Check the sauce for salt at the end. The sauce can be cooked with meat at this point, or stored, covered, in the fridge for at least four days or frozen for up to a few months.

Cauliflower Gratin 1 large head cauliflower, cut into florets 1 pound ricotta 3 large eggs, lightly beaten 1/ cup grated parmesan 2 1/ yellow onion, medium diced 2

2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil Salt and pepper to taste Freshly grated nutmeg to taste 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped

Blanch the cauliflower in a large pot of boiling salted water. When the cauliflower is tender, refresh in cold water and drain in a colander. In a small sauté pan, heat the olive oil and add the onions, salt, and pepper, and sweat until soft. Once soft, increase the heat and add the garlic. Cook until the mixture starts to brown, spread on a plate, and cool in the refrigerator. Add the drained cauliflower to a food processor in batches, process the cauliflower to a coarse texture. Add to a bowl and stir in ricotta, eggs, onion mixture, nutmeg, and parsley. Spoon the mixture into small oiled ramekins or an oiled baking dish, and bake in a hot water bath for 20 – 30 minutes.

Gnocchi alla Romana 1 quart milk 1 cup semolina 2 ounces unsalted butter, room temperature (1/2 stick) 1/ cup parmesan cheese, finely grated 2 2 egg yolks

/2 cup prosciutto or ham, finely chopped - optional Pinch nutmeg Salt to taste Italian parsley for garnish Freshly cracked black pepper to taste 1

Heat the milk in a heavy-bottomed sauce pan, bring to a boil, and whisk in the semolina, stirring until it pulls away from the edge of the pan. Cook on low heat 10 – 15 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the butter, cheese, egg yolks, and prosciutto. Season with the nutmeg and salt. Wet a countertop or baking sheet, and pour out the semolina to 1/2 inch thickness, allow to cool, and cut into 2 1/2-inch rounds. Arrange the rounds in a buttered baking dish in rows and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Dot with butter and bake in a 350-degree oven for 20-30 minutes or until cheese is golden and bubbly. Garnish with fresh cracked pepper and Italian parsley.

Gnocchi Parisienne 1 1/2 cups water 6 ounces unsalted butter, cut into tablespoons – 1 1/2 sticks Large pinch of coarse salt 2 1/4 cups bread flour 6 eggs 1/ cup grated Gruyère cheese 2

/4 cup Parmesan, grated Pinch cayenne pepper, ground 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard 1/ teaspoon freshly ground pepper 8 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon chives, sliced thin 1 tablespoon Italian parsley, chopped fine 1

In a medium saucepan, combine the water, butter, and salt then bring to a boil. Add the flour and stir in with a wooden spoon until a smooth dough forms; lower heat and stir until it dries out and pulls away from the pan, about two to four minutes. Scrape the dough into a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle; beat mixture for one minute to let cool. Beat the eggs into the dough, one at a time, beating thoroughly between each egg. Add the cheese, cayenne salt, pepper, herbs, and the Dijon mustard. Transfer the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a plain tip. To cook: Over a pot of rapidly boiling, salted water, pipe the mixture into the pot, cutting one-inch pieces with a paring knife. Once the pot is sufficiently crowded, allow the dumplings to cook, then remove to a sauté pan of butter, then complete another batch. Once the sauté pan is full, heat the pan, and toss the gnocchi with the butter.

Aspen Takes on Alaska Northwest Yachting joins Aspen Power Catamarans’ 10,000-mile journey through Alaska and beyond aboard Knot Wafflen’, a 40-foot C120, designed and built in the PNW. Words and Photos: Norris Comer

The afternoon horizon of Petersburg, Alaska is clear except for bald eagles and jagged mountain peaks as I walk to Middle Harbor from the airport. I’m eager to rendezvous with Larry Graf - founder, owner, and lead designer of Aspen Power Catamarans - and crew after my flight from Seattle. At long last, I’m about to hop aboard a 40-foot Aspen Power Catamaran C120 for a proper multiday cruise. Bring it on! I feel as eager as I do for a few reasons. First, I’ve followed Aspen Power Catamarans for a while, and even interviewed Graf several months prior at the Aspen factory in Burlington, Washington. The tour of the bustling facility and builds in various phases of construction with the man himself was eye opening to say the least…

T

Larry Graf, The Mad Scientist “There are a ton of features on power catamarans, especially my power proa Aspen designs,” Graf said proudly before sketching out drawings for me in a conference room of his factory back in March. Graf began to tout some compelling physical concepts with regards to his hull forms. As I listened, I became progressively more interested and engaged. Buoyancy was a key topic of discussion. For example, for every inch a C120 is pushed into the water beyond her resting water-

line, she gains about 2,700 pounds of buoyancy per square inch. The tunnel section (i.e., the empty space between the two hulls) has about 22 inches of clearance at the stern, so if the boat is pushed 10 inches downward, the resulting force translates to 27,000 pounds of buoyancy pushing back. “Here’s the key; the boat only weighs 24,000 pounds. See what I’m getting at?” Graf explained. “Thanks to the buoyant forces, the boat naturally bobs through waves as a full displacement boat. The driver doesn’t get that slapping feeling like with a planing catamaran design.” Additionally, Aspen designs abide by a strict ratio of tunnel height vs. width between the hulls. For anybody who has been to a boat show, catamarans come in all shapes and sizes, with twin hulls that are set either very far apart for maximum space aboard or closer together. “The most common power catamaran design flaw is when the height of the tunnel is one foot and the width of the tunnel is five feet, for example. A one to five ratio will guarantee a boat that will get the tunnel section banged in about 12 inches of chop. You need travel; think about the hull shape as a suspension system kind of like a dirt bike,” explained Graf. All Aspen designs follow a 2.5:1 tunnel height to width ratio, the ideal for seaworthiness according to Graf. Of course, as a catamaran, Aspen power cats enjoy many of the benefits of their peers.

Thanks to the beamier design, all Aspens, even the 28-footer, have a wall-to-wall master stateroom forward with king-sized island berth. In general, power catamarans tend to be 20-30% more fuel-efficient than monohulls of similar length overall, and Aspen has capitalized on its builds’ efficiencies by incorporating a single engine design. Bottom line, Aspen claims it needs far less horsepower to achieve superior performance than its competitors. The saved weight also translates to better fuel economy. Efficiency is Graf’s mantra, and the word punctuates his explanations like exclamation points. Efficiency! Excelsior! The factory visit and more swirl in my head as I walk past the Viking statue in downtown Petersburg and close in on the harbor. Graf had some pretty bold claims from the comfortable seat in his factory. Here in Alaska, we get to put those words to the test. But getting the chance to see what a C120 can really do is only half of the reason I’m excited to hop aboard. This vessel, Knot Wafflen’, has her own story to tell. Knot Wafflen’ and her owners, married couple David

and Sue Ellen Jenkins (nicknamed “The Admiral”), are completing their Alaska leg of a 10,000-mile adventure that ends at the Annapolis Boat Show in October 2018. The journey began May 8, 2017, at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, Washington on an overcast day. I spoke with the excited couple and Sue Ellen’s brother, Captain Blake Eder, who offered his skills as a professional captain for the journey between press photo ops and speeches at the docks before takeoff. The champagne bottle was broken on the bow and the air heavy with anticipation…

The Waffle King, the Admiral, and the Mariner “I was the CEO and owner of a company called Golden Malted, which was the largest waffle company in the U.S.,” said David Jenkins when we sat around the large galley table at the Anacortes launch party. “Obviously, I’m not waffling anymore,” Jenkins joked. The name is also a nod to one of Aspen’s and most power catamarans’ design benefits: excellent tracking. While new to cruising and boat ownership, the Jenkins’ were confident in Knot Wafflen’s capabilities and knew they had Captain Eder’s salty experience to fall back on when needed. Captain Eder even manages the Knot Wafflen’s blog, link available at aspenpowercatamarans.com. “The Aspen design is incredible. Everything you read about, it does,” said Captain Eder, who holds a U.S. Coast Guard captain’s license, delivers boats professionally, and completed four years in the Navy. “I’ve got some miles,” Captain Eder grinned at his understatement. “The Aspen crew takes an incredible amount of pride in their work. I’ve gotten to know them very well and Larry (Graf) has put together an incredible team. I’m very excited; anxious to get underway and get started,” said Captain Eder.

Aspen Meets Alaska I snap out of my reflections as I walk over the old boards of Middle Harbor and approach Knot Wafflen’. No longer brand

new from the factory, she’s clocked over 2,000 nautical miles by this point having run from Anacortes up the Inside Passage through B.C. to Glacier Bay, Alaska and down to Petersburg, taking her sweet time exploring sites on the way back south. A Walker Bay inflatable paddleboard is neatly packed next to crab traps on the flybridge. She looks none the worse for wear, but definitely in summer cruising mode. Larry Graf is in the dinghy messing with the outboard as we exchange greetings. I explore the interior as Graf finishes up. The woodwork detailing is excellent, something I didn’t appreciate before. One can clearly follow the grain from top to bottom of a piece across cuts and, to be blunt, it simply looks sexy as hell. Windows run along almost the whole side of the cabin, and the access to the stern cockpit is via a large glass door and a huge window that, when flipped opened, blends the exterior with the interior nicely. Try as I might, I couldn’t find a seat where a passenger would have a bad view underway. Graf joins me, shaking his head. “A darn paper towel was sucked into the carb!” Graf half chuckles, half sighs. Before long, the crew is assembled and we are on our way to Wrangell after a trip to the fuel dock to top off the twin tanks (220 gallons total). I look at the numbers on the nav display as we dodge crab pots and aluminum fishing runabouts trolling for salmon. We’re cruising against a four-knot current, yet are still maintaining approximately 14 to 16 knots of speed at around 1.2 to 1.5 nautical miles per gallon. The display clocks about 13 to 14 gallons an hour with our RPM at 2,800 to 2,900. Let that sink in for a second. At this speed, we’re performing similarly to the cruise speed of a decent ski boat. Yet here we are, on a vessel with roomier accommodations of a comparable trawler, with similar, if not better, fuel efficiency. I’ve always believed that any given boat build was a distilled series of compromises, but what to say about a build that’s got the pros of a performance boat with the efficiency and accommodations of a trawler or tug?

Graf and I catch up at the helm in the flybridge, his favorite seat. “We may just be able to say we’re ice strong now after all the glaciers we’ve seen,” Graf says, a proud inventor. Graf has been captain aboard since the Jenkins’ crew change a few weeks ago. He drove Knot Wafflen’ to

Nothing. Knot Wafflen’ does not budge an inch over the near-beam wake. Graf looks down at the nav display, a Garmin GPSMAP 7612, that can auto route an entire voyage and drive the boat there. “Ha!” Graf exclaims. “I thought we were on autopilot the last 10 minutes. Oh well.” He nonchalantly taps the screen. Knot Wafflen’ had been tracking a straight-asan-arrow heading our entire conversation without autopilot. “Oh well?!” I muse inwardly. We arrive in Wrangell from Petersburg in a couple of hours, travelling around 40-50 nautical miles easily in an afternoon. I settled into the aft-port quarter berth, a cozy arrangement best left for 27-year-old guests like me.

Skagway, Tracey Arm, and then back to Juneau. “We then went to Haines. It was blowing a gale, but we went anyway. Boat ran great through five to seven footers.” As far as Graf’s favorite part of the voyage, “The coolest places were Tracey Arm and Endicott Arm, south of Juneau.” A ski boat roars past the other way and I instinctively brace for the three-foot wake.

The weather the next day is not ideal for our 80 or so nautical mile cruise to Ketchikan. A low-lying fog sets in and drizzle is the norm as we run south in the morning. Visibility out the cabin is appreciated by crew, who relax and watch the scenery pass by. We anchor at Anan Falls, and Graf and I venture to shore on the dinghy to chance a bear sighting in the Tongass rainforest. Alas, we beat the salmon run and there are no bears to be found, but Graf and I have a good time nonetheless enjoying the freedom of cruising life. “My big advice to wannabe Alaskan adventurers is to do it in your own boat. You get to go where you want and do it on your own schedule,” Graf says as we motor back to Knot Wafflen’. Turns out, Nick Graf (Larry Graf’s son and Aspen employee) was hard at work aboard while we bumped around the woods and now touts a 50-pound halibut. Although not marketed as a fishing machine, the Aspen C120 does have a wide cockpit that gives Nick Graf ample space to process his prize.

becomes choppier, but even so, Knot Wafflen’ is good to her name. Even following quartering seas in the three- to six-foot range, conditions that most would not desire in a power catamaran, don’t faze her as she keeps up a lively 16 to 18 knots of cruising speed. Like all boats, a full-on beam sea at low speeds does get her rocking, but I can hardly fault her for that. In fact, her tracking and handling abilities seem to become more pronounced at higher speeds in rougher weather, unlike most monohulls I’ve been on. Knot Wafflen’ pulls into Ketchikan for the night without a fuss, and we celebrate with a few rounds of drinks at the nearby restaurant The Landing.

Final Verdict The morning in Ketchikan signals the end of the trip for our crew. We clean up our respective messes and part ways as owner David Jenkins and Captain Blake Eder arrive into town to take the helm. I catch up with them for their thoughts on the adventure thus far. Knot Wafflen’ is

equipped with a spare alternator, but it’s on the blink. Turns out, there’s something up with the auxiliary alternator itself, for this is the second auxiliary alternator failure on the trip. For safety, the two are waiting for the new installation. “We had another one that was supposed to be shipped in today, but unfortunately they had a tornado in Huntsville, Alabama where it is and so we’re not getting it today,” Jenkins sighs. “We spent a lot of time in Ketchikan before, so we’re going to head out. The boat with its redundant systems is easily operable without this extra alternator. It’s disconnected right now and we’ve got the primary alternator on the engine that’ll operate like any normal boat. It’s good that Aspen has the extra alternator to charge the battery bank, so if it fails we have the backup system.” Jenkins is also clear that the alternator failure is not Aspen’s fault and their support has been excellent. Jenkins looks forward to some “guy time” with Captain Eder on the boat when she’s running again. Fishing and seeing the west side of Prince of Wales Island are the priorities.

As far as the magnificence of Alaska is concerned, “Everybody thinks things are bigger in Texas, but that only holds true until you get to Alaska. That’s the truth.” Like Graf, Jenkins thought Tracey Arm was the coolest stretch, even beating out Glacier Bay. But has Knot Wafflen’ lived up to the Aspen C120 hype? “Absolutely,” Jenkins says without pause. “When you have heavy seas, it’s just a matter of getting to the right speeds and then you’re cruising on top of the waves. You can cruise at 16 to 18 knots on the crests and it’s amazing.” When pressed, Jenkins and Captain Eder admit that the yacht doesn’t maneuver well in reverse. But how much of a boat’s life is spent in reverse? Additionally, standard bow and stern thrusters make tight maneuvers virtually in place. “Most cruising boats we’ve come across are 8- to 10-knot boats, and the sphere of travel is so much smaller. In Alaska, you do not want to go into a tide with the wind at your back building up the waves. Because of the speed and distances this boat can travel, we were able to leave Ketchikan, get all the way to Wrangell Narrows at high tide, and get through the narrows to Petersburg in less than a day. Most boats around here would take at least two days to do that. Once in Petersburg, we refueled and were up in Tracey Arm at sundown. Ketchikan to Tracey Arm in one day. Just about anybody else would take three days. That speaks for itself.” I wish Jenkins and Captain Eder luck as I head back to land for good this time. The Pacific transit down the West Coast to California and Mexico await after the summer in Alaska, another test for Knot Wafflen’. Any sensible skipper contemplating an open Pacific voyage must answer the nagging internal question: Is my boat up to it? I take a last look at Knot Wafflen’ as I walk from the marina and easily imagine her arriving in the Sea of Cortez fresh from Pacific Northwest waters. She has, by all accounts, lived up to the hype so far. For Knot Wafflen’, a 10,000-mile journey to Annapolis isn’t really that far after all.

HAIDA Gwaii

Osprey, moored in Skedan’s Anchorage. 74 NORTHWEST YACHTING || AUGUST 2017


Boaters who visit the remote archipelago of Haida Gwaii (formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands) and its National Park, Gwaii Haanas, will be rewarded with old growth forests, unique indigenous wildlife, ancient village sites, and majestic Native art. They will also find some of the Pacifi c Northwest’s roughest waters and challenging passages. The two trips my husband Steve and I made in our Annapolis 44 sloop, Osprey, were among the most memorable and challenging trips of our 40 years of cruising this coast.

T

Preparation A trip to Haida Gwaii can easily take a whole summer. As you would for preparing for a trip to Southeast Alaska, you need to carry a full set of spares and develop a long-distance cruising mindset. A typical cruise from the Salish Sea requires a two-tothree week journey up the Inside Passage, a day-long crossing of Hecate Strait, time for shopping, repairs, and playing tourist in Skidegate Inlet, followed by another twoto-three week journey into Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site. Cruising the archipelago’s west coast can add two or more weeks. Your cruise may include three weeks, or even more, without access to treated potable water, fuel, groceries, or a garbage drop-off. You need to know how many miles you can cruise on a tank of fuel, how many days you can go on a tank of water, how much food you need to carry, and where you’re going to stow several weeks of trash. When leaving Haida Gwaii, sailboats and slow powerboats must plan for an overnight crossing to the Bella Bella area or a 36-hour trip around the north tip of Vancouver Island to Winter Harbour. But what you discover when you reach Haida Gwaii is a place like no other on Earth.

there are unique species of plants and animals found only on Haida Gwaii. As on islands everywhere, the introduction of non-native species threatens Haida Gwaii. Sitka black-tailed deer, for example, were introduced in the 1880s to supplement people’s diets. Deer numbers have grown to the point that the Park is now undertaking a deer eradication project to limit their numbers.

Human History Members of the Haida Nation have lived on Haida Gwaii for more than 10,000 years. Their numbers before the arrival of Europeans have been estimated as high as 20,000. In their large war canoes, they ranged up and down the Northwest coast, trading with other tribes and raiding villages. Following the first contact with Europeans, Haida art flourished with wealth from the fur trade and new iron tools that allowed the carving of larger and more elaborate poles and other artworks. But smallpox, other diseases, and intertribal warfare took their toll. By the late 1800s, fewer than 500 native people occupied Haida Gwaii. Abandoning their southern villages, the Haida consolidated in Skidegate and Old Masset, on Graham Island, leaving behind their monumental poles and grand houses as reminders of their glory. After the decline of the fur trade, the islands attracted fishing, mining, and forestry. By the 1980s, the rate of logging threatened the archipelago’s natural environment and the Haida’s traditional resources. Protests from the Haida Nation raised the issue of tribal land rights and at-

tracted international attention. The government of Canada negotiated with the Haida Nation, creating the Gwaii Haanas National Park, jointly managed by the Haida Nation and the government of Canada.

Weather & Climate Thanks to Haida Gwaii’s offshore location, the wind blows stronger there, fog is more frequent, and temperatures are milder than on the mainland or Vancouver Island. July is the driest month, while August is the warmest. A backbone of mountains running down the middle of the archipelago shields Haida Gwaii’s east coast from the worst of the precipitation, making it drier than the west coast (52 inches vs 168 inches). During summer northwesterlies, neither coast is likely to have rain but the west coast is likely to have more fog.

Skidegate Inlet Skidegate Inlet, between Graham Island on the north and Moresby Island on the south, is Haida Gwaii’s primary center of commerce. The Inlet has two marinas: Sandspit Marina on the Inlet’s south side and Queen Charlotte City Harbour Authority on the north. The Sandspit Marina is modern and spacious with a fuel dock, showers, and power, but other than being close to the Sandspit Airport for crew changes, the Sandspit village itself offers few amenities. At Queen Charlotte Harbour you may need to raft or even anchor. The village of Queen Charlotte (known as Queen Charlotte City until residents became tired of tourists asking, “Where’s the city?”) offers a grocery store, a hardware store, a Visitors’ Information Centre, a hospital,

Natural History Haida Gwaii sits at the very edge of the North American continent and its continental shelf. That location and the 60-mile distance from the mainland gave us the Haida culture and Haida Gwaii’s unique geology and biology. Portions of the archipelago remained ice-free during the last glaciation, creating isolated pockets where plants and animals survived to evolve with unique characteristics. Haida Gwaii’s black bears, for example, are the largest black bears anywhere, and

clinic, pharmacy, restaurants, coffee shops, and gift shops. You can also rent a car for side trips to Old Masset, Tow Hill, or other tourist destinations. The north side of the Inlet is home to the Haida Heritage Centre at Skidegate. A visit there is the best way to acquaint yourself with Haida art, culture, and history. Recently carved poles grace the Haida Culture Centre, evidence of a renaissance in the Haida culture. Don’t look for public transportation to the Centre, but you can hitchhike or anchor off Jewell Island and take your dinghy ashore. Once you leave Skidegate Inlet and head south down the east side of Moresby Island, you enter an area of scenic anchorages, forested islands, and ancient village sites. Prevailing westerlies ensure much of your trip down this coast will be in protected waters, with only short trips along more exposed headlands including Skedans Point, Lyell Island, Scudder Point (with wild rips not noted in any guide), and the stretch along Benjamin, Goodwin, and Ikeda points. The longest open water stretch will be the 40 nautical miles from Skidegate Inlet to Skedans, just north of the Park. Five sites, four in Gwaii Haanas Park and one (Skedans) on a separate Haida National Park Reserve, are manned by Haida Watchmen. The Watchmen are employed by the Park and will welcome you and give you a tour. They live onsite during the summer. Regulations allow only 12

visitors at a time at each site. Call on VHF channel 6 for permission to come ashore. Because the Haida built their villages for access by canoes, not modern cruising boats, their village sites can be poor anchorages, open to weather, and clogged with kelp and rocks. Up-to-date charts are critical. Overnight anchorage at the managed sites is neither encouraged nor practical. Few cruisers will have time to visit all the east coast’s many anchorages, but most will want to see all the managed sites. Plan your cruise around them and choose other anchorages for their features and convenience to the sites. Skedans has original carved memorial and mortuary poles and one of the most spectacular settings: a park-like area on Skedans Point under the shadow of high basalt cliffs. Tanu (T’aanu Linagaay) lies 11 miles south, inside the park. You will walk on mossy trails lined by clam shells among what was once a thriving village with large community houses. The Watchmen will show you how to recognize house sites from their house pits and fallen house poles. From Tanu you have the option of anchoring nearby before heading southeast to the next site, Windy Bay, or heading west to explore the marshes and creeks of the tree-lined harbors of Anna and Echo harbors. Watch for Sandhill cranes along the shores and eagles nesting in the trees.

NECESSARY Permits Visiting Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site on the southern two-thirds of Moresby Island requires a permit and a fee. Fees are per person per day (free in 2017 for the Canadian sesquicentennial and $19.60 per person in 2018) for a maximum of six days with no additional fees beyond that time. Season permits, which give flexibility, are also available for the same six-day fee. To get permits call 1-877-559-8818. To enter the park, you must have a mandatory orientation, either in Skidegate or via a DVD issued with your permit. The reservation system limits the number of visitors to the park at any one time, so it is best to apply as soon as you know your plans. Parks officials note, however, that the park is rarely “full.” They want to encourage independent boaters and are available by phone for questions.

Windy Bay (Hlk’yah Linagaay) has an impressive stand of old-growth forest and interesting recent history. At Windy Bay, the Haida Nation and Hadia Gwaii residents made their stand in 1987 against massive clear cutting that was destroying their homeland’s environment. A newly constructed longhouse commemorates the event. Watchmen will explain the interdependence of their people and the forest and point out culturally modified trees (CMTs) — cedar trees with strips of bark removed for weaving. Other trees show the marks of old burns where canoe makers tested them for potential as canoe logs. Remnants of clear cuts in surrounding hills are sobering reminders of what Haida Gwaii would be like today without the vision and perseverance of the Haida Nation. Hot Spring Island, (Gandll K’in Gwaay. yaay) six miles south, lost its hot springs in an earthquake in 2012. Geologists are cautiously optimistic the springs will return, but for now the only warm water is below the high tide mark. But the view of green islands and blue water from the island’s hiking trails are worth the stop. As the crow flies, it’s 30 nautical miles from Hot Spring Island to the next managed site, SGang Gwaay on Anthony Island — many more miles if you have the time to explore the waterways in between. It’s worth the extra time. You can scramble up Continued on Page 78

S’gang Gwaay, the fifth and best known of the managed sites, is located off the exposed southwest coast of Moresby island. The cluster of standing mortuary poles, longhouse sites, and middens have earned it the status of both a National Historic Site and a World Heritage Site. We have seen it twice. The first time we approached S’gang Gwaay from the east, just in time to see the stand mortuary poles emerge from the fog. The second time, we approached from the northwest to see the poles gleaming in the sunshine. Both times the first sight of the cluster of poles made my heart jump. Walking among them, I felt the need for silence.

I felt the presence of former villagers’ ghosts hovering nearby.

Moreseby Island’s West Coast Boaters who brave the tortuous and current-swept Skidegate Narrows to head south down the west coast of Moresby Island will find a mountainous, rockbound coast exposed to the full fury of the Pacific and indented by a series of inlets, sounds, and bays. Although much of the coast is in Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, you’ll see few other boats. If that is unnerving, know that if an extreme emergency occurs, there is good VHF reception with Prince Rupert Coast Guard. The coast’s smaller bays and inlets are unsurveyed (they are shown as white on the charts) and lack navigation marks. Entering them is a daunting prospect, particularly in fog with strong or galeforce westerlies behind you. Keep a sharp lookout and be ready to change

course quickly. The Canadian government’s reference, Sailing Directions, lists rocks and reefs reported by fishermen over the years. Sketches in Exploring the North Coast of British Columbia: Blunden Harbour to Dixon Entrance, the Douglass’ cruising guide, are invaluable, although not always 100% accurate. Use your own best judgment. It’s about 85 nautical miles from the west end of Skidegate Narrows to Houston Stewart Channel and Rose Harbour. With a strong wind behind you, you could sail the coast in two to three days. With a wind against you, it might take you a week or more. But the coast boasts many anchorages worth visiting, including Buck Channel, the site of the ancient village site of Chaatl with two magnificent standing totem poles, and Sunday Inlet with its awe-inspiring Pinnacle Rocks. As you cruise down the coast, albatross soar Continued on Page 99

PLANNING YOUR Route Boats cruising to Haida Gwaii from the Salish Sea have a choice of routes:

Crossing Hecate Strait Hecate Strait, between the mainland and Haida Gwaii, is famous for its strong currents, high winds, and shallow waters; a combination that conspires to create steep seas and a rough crossing. If your route takes you across Hecate Strait, the choice of a crossing location will be one of the most important decisions of your trip. Because Hecate Strait narrows as it goes north, the farther north your departure point, the shorter the crossing, and, assuming prevailing northwesterlies, the easier the passage. Possible routes: Browning Entrance area to Skidegate Inlet: Larsen Harbour (60 nm) or Spicer Islands (69 nm). This is the most common and easiest route. Dogfish Bank halfway across provides partial protection from the seas, and sailboats will be slightly off the wind. Arriving at Skidegate Inlet puts you in a position for a southbound cruise through the Park. Points farther south on Hecate Strait to Rose Harbour: Leaving farther south and landing at Rose Harbour near Haida Gwaii’s southern tip can take a day or 78 NORTHWEST YACHTING || AUGUST 2017

two off your trip. Landing at Rose Harbour, or at any location in the Gwaii Haanas Park, requires a permit in hand and self-orientation with a DVD. Watch the weather carefully when taking this route. It can put you in the full brunt of northwesters barreling down Hecate Strait. Arriving at Rose Harbour in the south end works especially well if you plan on cruising both east and west coasts of Moresby Island. It allows you to go north up the east side and south down the west side. Departure options include Borrowman Bay on Aristazabel Island (74 nm) and Gillian Harbour (73 nm) in the Estevan Group.

Open Water Routes Southern Ports to Rose Harbour: With the right boat and the right wind (a 15-knot southerly would be perfect), you can depart from any number of ports from Port Hardy (157 nm) to Seaforth Channel (103 nm). The Ocean Route: If you’re prepared for an extended ocean sail, it may be faster to sail up the west coast of Vancouver Island and across Queen Charlotte Sound.

ISLE 360

Racers en-route from Port Hardy to Winter Harbour.

A DISTANCE RACE WITH A SOCIAL PROGRAM Preparing for any two-week sailing race takes a lot of effort; planning for the weather, knowing your crew members’ strengths, making sure your boat is stocked, and more. Then you look at the map of Vancouver Island and realize that no matter what you bring, or how much you think you are ready, you are going to need more. As the starting clock ticks down the final seconds before the fourth leg of the 2017 Van Isle 360 begins, the fleet of 30 racing yachts push one another, ducking and weaving. This scene looks like the beginning of a Rolex championship regatta or offshore classic, except that the only spectators are bears roaming the beach and eagles soaring above. As the clock hits zero, the fleet comes onto the wind and a loud bang is heard across the water. Onboard the 1D48 Flash, our

rig goes slack as we realize the forestay is no longer attached to the mast. The sails come down, halyards go forward for safety, and we head for the nearest marina — the three-dock, four-building town of Browns Point just north of Seymour Narrows. Most would assume that the adventure is over, but in this race solving problems is part of the strategy. Using nothing more than a sharp file and a hammer, the forestay is fitted back into the mast. We arrive at the next stop as the sun sets to the applause


of our competition and continue around Vancouver Island. And this was only day four of the two-week race. The Van Isle 360 stands out from any race I’ve ever taken part. Stopping everywhere from the bustling tourist city of Victoria to the remote village of Winter Harbour, with its year-round population of ten, this race covers the complete spectrum of what sailing in the Pacific Northwest offers. Especially challenging is that the only spare parts allowed are what you bring aboard or deliver via chartered airplane. The old saying, “If it was easy, then everyone would do it” rings true as the marathon leg race not only requires a crew of seasoned sailors, but also resourceful boat builders and clever mechanics to keep the fleet moving for 14 days straight. Race director and owner of Blast Performance Sailing, Jeff Motley, sums it up perfectly, “What makes Van Isle unique is the fact that it is 580 nautical miles but there are a few stops along the way. It’s not like Transpac or Vic Maui, where you lose track of your competition for two weeks. Every night everyone gets back together again to trade stories and ask about each other’s adventures.” Asking someone why they would want to sail a boat around Vancouver Island, let alone race it, results in a wide range of answers. Some are there for the competition, while others are looking for a challenge, but everyone comes ready for an adventure. The race was the brain child of Wayne Gorey and Tim Knight, who in 1999 proposed a race around Vancouver Island, partly for the competition, but mostly to see if it could be done. No one knew if a scheduled multi-stage event was even possible, with the shifting winds, currents through the Inside Passage, and the potentially deadly offshore conditions on the island’s outside edge, not to mention the logistical challenge of a new town every night. Understandably, before 1990 such a race had never been attempted. The first race was held and nicknamed the “Ambassador Race” and was made possible by generous sponsorship from local British Columbia businesses. Hence this traveling circus of a yacht race was created and became an instant success. The following

two races were held back-to-back in 2000 and 2001. But after three years on the trot, many involved wondered if perhaps a biannual format was more appropriate going forward. Blast Performance Sailing stepped in to run the now biannual race in 2003. The initial changes saw a shift away from the large corporate sponsors and a migration towards a participant-supported event. This transition made it possible for the race to be self-supporting and consequently enabled race organizers and participants to plan without fear of needing sponsorships to take on this race’s challenges. Jeff Motley recognizes the commitment required from skippers and crew members to participate. “Especially the young guys. They are giving up all of their vacation to come do this, and you want to make sure when they come that the event itself is fun,” says Motley. Now nearly 20 years old, Van Isle, as it has become known, has remained the pinnacle for many Northwest sailors’ bucket lists. At its core, the race takes part over two weeks every odd year, leaving from Nanaimo and sailing coun-

terclockwise around Vancouver Island. Perhaps the most alluring part of this race is the opportunity to stop at all the communities around the island that even the most seasoned cruiser would not discover. The stops have shifted around over the years based on interest of the communities as well as for the benefit of the racing. This year ’s 2017 race took place over nine legs with the shortest being just over 24 nautical miles through Discovery Passage, and the longest haul, a grueling 140 offshore miles.

NANAIMO The start and end of the race takes place in the city of Nanaimo. Nestled in a bay directly west of the city of Vancouver, Nanaimo is a prime location to begin any northern yachting trip. It’s convenient with daily direct flights from Seattle and Vancouver in addition to Tsawwassen ferry access. From here, boats undergo safety inspections and skippers meet to get everyone accounted for and ready to start racing. After the starting gun, the fleet heads south around the harbor entrance and then north into the Strait of Georgia.

COMOX Traditionally the second stop along the route, Comox has now taken center stage as the destination of the first leg. Being the first stop, not many yet long for the comforts of home, but with great local restaurants and watering holes, it is a fine place to set the stage for the weeks to come. The next morning the departing fleet crosses the sometimes-treacherous sandbar that protects the marina and continues north towards Campbell River.

FOCUS

SAFETY

Located at the entrance to Queen Charlotte Strait, the traditional fishing village has grown into a full-on destination for anyone traveling north. The town’s success is in no small part to Seymour Narrows, located a few miles north of the marina and home to some of the most aggressive currents in the world, over 16 knots at some points. Everything from small pleasure boats to commercial vessels wait for the currents to change to make their way through the passage. The tough decision for the fleet is either heading through the Narrows from Browns Bay or waking up before the sun to make their way through the Narrows during the tide change. The race to Hardwicke Island feels more like sailing the Columbia Gorge than the Northwest Passage. With the shoreline little more than half-mile wide at parts, and ripping currents pushing along at five knots, this leg will always have a special place in my

Compared to other adventure races, Van Isle stands out due to the focus on safety. “One of the big challenges is keeping the Safety Equipment Regulations reasonable enough for the conditions you’re going to encounter. A lot of people argue that it is really a coastal race, but once you leave Port Hardy, it’s not a coastal race anymore,” says Motley. Supporting the Canadian Coast Guard’s efforts and mandating Safety at Sea for a minimum number of crew was one of the first steps that Blast

memory as one of the best days of upwind sailing I’ve experienced.

HARDWICKE ISLAND Perhaps the most unconventional stop on the course is Hardwicke Island, for this stop puts sailors on an overnight campout, rafted off an anchored fish farm. A full BBQ is hosted on the farm, and there are plenty of knowledgeable staff on site to answer questions and teach sailors about the science of fish farming. This is always a great opportunity for crews to spend time hanging around the boats without running off to dinner or to check into hotels. This most recent race saw several collisions on the leg to the fish farm, so it was a mad scramble as crews tried to make repairs using only what was available to them on board. In most cases, they had nothing! The next day’s race continues through the narrow channels of Queen Charlotte Straits and into the gorgeous storm hole of Telegraph Cove.

TELEGRAPH COVE Telegraph Cove feels familiar to anyone who has sailed to Roche Harbor in the San Juan Islands, for it parallels the same small town feel. Quaint cottages line the shore and the one bar in town is constantly bustling with sailors during the stopover. The difference lies in the ever-present wildlife such as the endless warnings of bears ransacking garbage cans, and the orca pods that can be seen passing by. The whale museum is not to be missed, and the small coffee stand at the head of the dock has some of the best breakfast burritos I have found north of Victoria. After a full 24-hour lay day, the

Performance Sailing took upon when they took over the race. Motley stands by the decision and states, “If it kills the race, it kills the race.” There is no arguing with the call, putting safety first has made the event more fun as racers know how to handle themselves and assist the Coast Guard when presented with an emergency. This focus on crew preparedness stood out in a situation this most recent race during the leg leaving Telegraph Cove when the J/111 65 Red Roses broke its rudder sailing downwind in a strong breeze. Radio communication plus the active and appropriate response of both the crew onboard and nearby racers allowed the boat to be towed into a safe harbor. So prepared was the crew that many of them were willing and able to jump onboard with competitors and complete the race! Continuing with the focus on safety, AIS transponders will be made mandatory for all competitors for the 2019 edition of the race. Be prepared!

fleet heads out on a short jaunt through the islands and into Johnstone Straits to the top of the island and with a stop at Port Hardy.

PORT HARDY Originally established as a trading outpost by the Hudson Bay Company, Port Hardy plays host to the last stop along the inside of Vancouver Island. The town sits at the literal end of the road and is home to a very active First Nations community as well the Canadian Coast Guard station that looks after the racing fleet as they head over the top of the island. This stop is normally a changing of the guard as many crew members swap out and take advantage of the direct flight from Vancouver International Airport. After the new crew settles in, it’s off to Winter Harbour.

WINTER HARBOUR One of the most remote harbors in the world, Winter Harbour boasts a safe harbor, one payphone, and 10 year-round residents eager to make racers feel at home. Located deep in a natural harbor just south of the northwest point of Cape Scott, the small fishing community was once home to hundreds of commercial fishermen. As salmon populations declined in the area, the fishing opportunities moved north, taking much of the town with them. The race brings a wave of fresh faces into the small enclave, and with miles of hiking trails and beaches to explore, it is a worthy stop along the race route. The town comes together and hosts a terrific BBQ during a lay day as boats and crews recover from the trip over the top of the island and prepare for the 140-nauticalmile, offshore leg to Ucluelet.

few days of offshore sailing. Located at the mouth of Barkley Sound, it is a welcome sight complete with a very well-equipped chandlery and plenty of dock space for crews to empty out boats and dry out interiors. A highlight of this stopover is the community’s involvement, for the town hosts a salmon BBQ at the newly finished community center and invites local grade school children to come down and tour the boats. After leaving “Ukee” the fleet heads towards the bustling metropolis of Victoria, coming in through the Strait of Juan de Fuca on what has become affectionately known as the “One Way Swiftsure.” While the first 20 nautical miles are open ocean, the finish of the race follows the traditional course used for decades, allowing many Northwest racing veterans to put old-school, local knowledge to use.

VICTORIA Well known to racers, Victoria marks the end of the ocean legs and a warm welcome back to the city. It is a bit of a culture shock to come right into the Inner Harbor and be thrown among the cruise ship crowd and hordes of people walking the docks. Official festivities are held at the Royal Victoria Yacht Club with the traditional awards and a fantastic dinner held on the lawn of the club. The final leg of the race is a roll of the dice, as the course is an open race from Victoria back to where it all began in Nanaimo. The route takes the fleet through the Gulf Islands whatever way they choose, making for some heart pounding, close-quarters racing as well as some regretful tactical decisions if you lose sight of competition only to see them emerge around the next island clear ahead. Coming into the finish, racers are filled with an awkward combination of comfort, relief, and dread as the adventure comes to an end and the realities of real life begin to flood in.

Understanding that the event is as much a logistical challenge as a tactical one, Blast Performance Sailing together with seasoned Van Isle veterans are compiling The Roadies Road Book. This guide will contain the information you will need to take on the Van Isle 360 with your own boat. The road crew logistics are where seasoned teams seem to have it dialed in: the roadies wake up with the racers, pack the house or hotel, find everyone’s things they couldn’t be bothered to keep track of, and much more, all before breakfast. This guide is written in the spirit of the race, for veterans want nothing more than for everyone to have the opportunity. “That’s what the race is about. You try to describe to people that if you come and do this race, you’re going to become part of a close-knit group. If you’ve done Van Isle, you mention it and people come out of the woodwork to help you out. It’s that type of race. On the start line there is lot of tactical maneuvering, but back on land it’s all hands-on deck to help get things fixed,” says Motley. The community style of racing sets this adventure apart from the all-out grand prix battling of yacht racing. The 2017 event had boats rebuilding transmissions, repairing broken bow pulpits, and creating makeshift man-overboard poles using spare battens and crab pot floats. When someone needed something, the entire fleet pooled together to keep the show moving forward and everyone safe and able to race hard. Typical camaraderie for Van Isle.

PRO TIPS

It is easy to get carried away with the festivities and racing. Finding time to explore the towns and cities during the stopovers is perhaps what makes the race so cool. The lay days are great opportunities to explore this remote part of the world and take advantage of the local attractions. Over the years, racers have done everything from chartering fishing guides in Winter Harbour to whale watching in Telegraph Cove. The locations make this race special and keep people coming back for more. With the race on schedule for 2019, the regular faces are already beginning to plan crew lists and request time off from work.

BEING THE

CAPTAIN The Bricks and Mortar of being comfortable and competent at thE helm

B y C a p ta i n S k i p A n d e r s o n

84 NORTHWEST YACHTING || AUGUST 2017

As a boating instructor and lifelong mariner, I’ve grown to see the voyage to becoming captain is as much about cultivating a philosophy as it is about logging a certain number of miles or passing exams. Being Captain is less about receiving a license and more about becoming one with oneself, others, and nature. In my efforts to categorize the

A

different elements of becoming captain, I turn to metaphor: bricks versus mortar. My use of the term “bricks” refers to the thousands of physical details that go into boating. Bricks refers to the “to do” or “to get” list that’s never fully done, the checklist that’s always growing, and frankly, the focus of most boaters. This is not where I want to take this dialogue.


Approach 1: The Leap of Faith Some boaters “wing it” every time they get underway, counting on pure luck to serve them well time after time. The problem with that approach is that the Laws of Probability invariably catch up with them eventually, typically at the worst time, in the worst place, and usually in the worst way. Approach 2: A method to your madness Imagine loving your avocation so much you delve deeply into every aspect that bears directly on your enjoyment of the sport. This approach will not only create a safer environment in which to operate, for yourself and for other boats/ boaters around you, but also vastly improve your experience both on the water and alongside the dock. Let’s compare these two approaches thematically: 1. Approach 1: “Are you kidding? I don’t need training.” Approach 2: “Hey, perhaps I’ll learn something I can really use!” 2. Approach 1: “I pay my mechanic to handle that.” Approach 2: “Please show me what to do, so I’ll know what to do in an emergency.” 3. Approach 1: “Hey, I’m the Skipper here! Stand back – I’ll handle this!” Approach 2: “Here, let me share how to do that properly … it could make a difference if one of us gets hurt.” 4. Approach 1: “Hold my beer and watch this!” Approach 2: Pace is everything – slow, assured, confident boat handling is the result of years of studied practice. A disciplined approach is a safer, happier bet.

Being the Captain is as much about cultivating awareness and a love of learning new things as it is about logging sea time.

In truth, luck is just that, luck. Time has a way of teaching us that inexperience, ignorance, and false bravado attract bad luck in a big way, while good sense, training, and a temperate, professional approach to boating attracts good luck in an equally big way. Bottom line? Neither physics nor the sea care about you. If you care about you, recognize here and now that the flavor of luck you earn is driven solely by the choices you make. In the spirit of facilitating good luck, I offer positive characteristics I associate with becoming captain. Romance and the Sea: I do not refer to the passion between two people, but rather about our rampant, infectious fervor for boating fueled by our natural attraction to water. Just as in human relationships, the man-boat attraction can be tough to characterize. People naturally long to be close to moving water. Deception Pass, Multnomah Falls, and even dining at local waterfront restaurants are huge draws. Walking in the wet sand along the surf line in Grayland or Westport is seductive to most. Throw in sailing, fishing, waterskiing, cruising, diving, etc., and you get the idea. The mysterious attraction may actually enhance our experience with boats. That said, I still think it’s useful to pause once in a while to reflect on how you got where you did regarding boating. To me, the words “why” and “be” dig at the heart of our passion for the sea, and better influence what kind of captain you’ll end up being. Staying in that mindful conversation may better serve to fuel your passion, and could help you become a better captain.

When you’re at the helm, you’re responsible for everyone on board. Your ability to put safety and skill above ego is critical. (Photo: Jan Anderson)

Instead, I’ll address what I call “mortar,” the essence that holds it all together. It is the mortar of boating that drives us to different levels of experiences and really (no, really!) is what we’re seeking in our insatiable passion for boating. With mortar in mind, here are two a p p ro a c h e s b o a t e r s t a k e t o w a rd becoming Captain:

Thirst for growth: Sharp boat operators are open to learning new things, yet also reinforce old principles while remaining open to mentoring. With the right training, whether afloat or in a classroom, you’ll likely be exposed to fresh ideas, tips, tricks, and techniques that you’ll find useful for years to come. Even if you consider a course too advanced or too tough, engage for all you’re worth – you may surprise yourself. Of course, additional training alone can’t guarantee that you’ll avoid disaster, but it should better your odds. Conversely, an untrained cavalier attitude may create a disturbing outcome that could in an instant change your entire perspective on what “should have been.” A periodic pause for training could save you a lifetime of regret. Cast of characters: There are many skippers so enamored with themselves they imagine they are the model of perfect boating, as is, right out of the box, without even a lick of experience. These are arguably the most dangerous boaters on the planet, unwittingly relying on pure luck to return home safely at the end of the day. Grow your experience to a point where you are able to spot these fellas a full nautical mile away and steer clear. At the opposite end of the spectrum, there are those lifelong boaters that relish every opportunity to be on the water, all the while respecting the elements, tending to the material condition of their vessel, exposing themselves to new ideas and initiatives, engaging in training at every opportunity to stretch their universe well beyond what they know they know, effusing courtesy to other boaters along the way on every voyage they undertake, sharing their experiences and experience with all those to whom it may matter, and cherishing every form of all things nautical — draw closer to these types. Fortunately, we are blessed with countless good folk that function off the water,

or in the periphery of our boating worlds. Examples range from the countless volunteers that run sailing regattas every year to the dad laboring over the brightwork on his old wooden classic so that his son may treasure those memories after he is gone. Connect with the right crowd, and you can continually work toward an everimproving level of spatial awareness on the water, embrace a more powerful, integrated approach to boating, and have more fun. Confidence through experience: As the old saying goes, good judgment comes

Hey fellas, consider letting the whole family take you for a drive on the water occasionally.

from experience; experience comes from bad judgment. Bad judgment can only be fully exorcized by getting underway – classroom discussions alone will never suffice in the real world. Take in your mooring lines and stretch your experience envelope a bit by developing challenging voyage plans. Guys love being in charge, whether or not they should be. Heck, “macho men” know how to switch on the radar then ignore it, steer the boat hard aground, start the engines without cooling water, plumb the head directly overboard, navigate without charts, tune the radio to the wrong channel, approach a mooring too fast, forget to turn on the navigation lights, care less about their wake, blame the fog for their mishap, and laugh when a passenger gets seasick.

north to the Wherever Islands, sailing regattas every weekend, powerboat rendezvous’ here and there, or fishermen hooking up with other fishermen to pursue their lifelong dreams. The combinations are endless. What fun! But then in a flash, the unthinkable happens and the dark side of boating rears its head. A classic (non-gory) example is the large 143-foot retired tug boat that ran aground just inside the R4 buoy off Shilshole Bay Marina. Its amateur crew found a “professional” shallow spot, then blamed the grounding on a faulty radar and fog — and even declared on Facebook the grounding was “through no fault of the crew.” These mariners clearly can’t even grasp the notion of common sense, let alone the Laws of the Sea, especially regarding Captains ultimately taking responsibility no matter what. When things go wrong on the water, the sequence of events leading to disaster is typically a series of poor decisions, omissions, or blunders. It is the skipper’s responsibility to manage these elements in advance to avert problems. Take the time to define your interpretation of responsibility for your actions, your crew, your planning, your conduct, your decisions, your preparedness, your attitude, and on and on and on. Doing so will earn you far more freedom for the structure and order you embrace, fun for all the effort you applied in advance, pride from your well-found preparedness, and ultimately, peace in knowing you’re on the right path.

Be deliberatve about doing that which is right: We must admit, for life to be in balance, for every plus there must be a minus, for every good a bad, for every right a wrong, for every angel a demon. The bottom line, then, is this: mariners need to be taught to operate effectively in that tiny confined space between good and bad. Do good, don’t do bad. Essentially, make better decisions from the standpoint of knowing what’s right, and take a powerful proactive stance against doing wrong. To ignore the possibility of bad is wholly unrealistic. It’s a-l-w-a-y-s there, just across the water from good, waiting to pounce. Remember: the universe in balance. Enduring vigilance: Imagine the possibility of elevating your boating to a different level, operating at a more enlightened stratum. When you are on the water, see the front and the back of the mirror; sense the dangers and the joys simultaneously. When you fish, consider carefully the moment; when you sail, be the wind and the water. When approaching shoal water trust your senses to alert you and train until your instincts are consistently cradled in that sweet spot. The dangers are real, your responses should be certain to recognize and repel them. The joys are also real, your senses better equipped to embrace them. Life will invariably present you with both sides of this balanced equation – deal with it. If you’re the captain, for goodness sakes be the Captain, for there can be only one. Study, train, practice, respect the elements, examine your charts, know your boat, understand your limitations, discuss potential dangers, and embrace your responsibilities, yet always maintain a sharp lookout for pure joy, for it’s there in abundance. And as with all lookouts, actual or philosophical, you have a duty to see what can be seen. DREAM SAILORS A few years ago, my wife Jan and I were stunned by a child sailing his OPTI sailboat in a youth regatta held in the Center Sound. He was trailing the rest of the fleet by a quarter-mile, yet did he care? As he

quietly passed, you could clearly tell this was before this young fella grasped the idea of winning or losing, before he knew it was somehow important to sail really, really fast, before he was taught it was important to keep up. He was as content as content could be, and I was shaken to my boating core. This moment remains seared into my mind as utter proof of our natural love of boating. Do you remember this sensation? Too few people slow down long enough to do so. This natural harmonic resonance is the why of being on the water, in the water, and about the water. Witnessing this child sail by us sent the following message loud and clear: constantly reclaim your reason and never forget your love. Boating provides opportunities for life-changing moments. Paths carefully selected and followed wisely can lead to profound fulfillment, and for a moment, everything is in balance. We now have lifelong memories with which we can regale our friends and families, sharing our special circumstance, our excitement, our life lesson, our new-found inner peace, and our bliss. Whatever your intentions or your path, however, just know this at some point your dreams will be beyond your reach. Time has its way of narrowing your options. And, more sadly, even if you fulfill your dream, at some point it will end. But if you’ve played big - really, really big - when reality all too soon whispers “it’s over” quietly into your heart, you won’t be dismayed; you’ll be grateful for the power of your dreams, Captain.

Husband and wife Skip and Jan Anderson are two licensed captains and owners of the Flagship Maritime school in Tacoma, Washington (flagshipmaritimellc.com). Captain Skip is a lifetime boater, Navy veteran, and professional mariner. Captain Jan is the owner of Jan’s Marine Photography and longtime photography contributor of Northwest Yachting magazine. They are pictured here with Mocha, the sea dog and professional “student relaxer”.

BRICKWORK

FOUNDATION Every day we get inquiries regarding what it takes to earn a captain’s license. Is it difficult? What are the benefits? Our bottom line is this: if you have sufficient sea service, if you are a hard-working student (notice I didn’t write “smart”), and if you have the will to prevail over a mound of administrative requirements, you, too, can earn your captain’s license. For starters there’s, the Operator of Uninspected Passenger Vessel, a.k.a. “six-pack” license. Fifty-six hours in the classroom, four examinations, done. Then you can choose to upgrade to the Master 25- (or) 50- (or) 100-ton license, depending on your sea service and experience on the water, to broaden your horizons further. Why do it at all? Plenty of people come through the training for the professional grade instruction, which can really help insurance rates. Many, many agencies have sent officers through for a variety of reasons. For the most part, though, people are simply seeking another path for their lives. They’ve loved boating, and thought “what can I do with my experience afloat?” Many are tired of their humdrum careers and are anxious to shift gears. Earning your license can open up pathways you never even knew existed. Some of the greatest benefits of taking a class alongside other mariners is sharing ideas, sharing dreams and aspirations, discovering new possibilities, and partnering for your future. Learn navigation, study rules of the road, and broaden your awareness of deck seamanship, but understand this: your training reaches far beyond course content and could well be a declaration of independence from a lifestyle in which society would leave you embroiled. Sure, there is class work, a mighty volume of information to study, exams to pass, and paperwork to process. But that’s all only “stuff.” Don’t balk at the “stuff,” the bricks of boating. But remember the mortar, the essence and passion of boating, that holds it all together. Keep your eye on your goal and you’ll do great, Captain!

RACING SHEET

Adult Summer Camp Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson Looking at the summer calendar between the fireworks of the Fourth of July and the Blue Angels of Seafair sits Whidbey Island Race Week (WIRW). Held every summer for the past 35 years, the event has stayed true to its roots, providing racers with five days of windward and leeward short course racing. Attracting some of the most competitive fleets, and the most outrageous sailors in search of an all-out good time both on and off the water, WIRW is an annual Pacific Northwest highlight. Sixty-two boats broken into five PHRF and two one-design classes made

up the 2017 fleet, with the evergrowing J/105’s leading the way and putting 13 boats on the line. The smooth waters of Penn Cove and the thermal breeze coming in from the Strait of Juan de Fuca made for perfect conditions. The first day of racing got underway with a textbook Penn Cove westerly and all fleets enjoyed three races to kick off the week. Steady breeze built into the afternoon and allowed the heavier boats to reach their full potential. After the race, the party began on the dock, as music was blasting from the committee boat on their way in and sails were folded up for the evening.

Tuesday morning came and brought with it more sunshine and wind. As the wind from the previous night settled down, the standings began to take shape as three more races for each fleet began to separate out the larger fleets. Racing got underway on time, and shifting currents played havoc both on the racers and the racecourse itself. Midweek, the fleet was in full pink in support of The Pink Boat Regatta, which supports breast cancer research and will be hosted this fall on Lake Union. Wednesday’s racing took a moment to get things underway but as the wind filled in from the west, it turned

into another classic day in Penn Cove. The wind was shifty and most fleets worked close into shore to stay within a favorable tide in the typical toilet bowl currents. Thursday saw a return of the steady winds and racing was underway on time. Action on the water was exciting, thanks to the grudge matches now brewing as the overall points battle continued. Light wind gave a clear advantage to the more powerful sport boats, but the day was not without its surprises as one wind shift could be the difference between first and last. Thanks to those thrown out from the previous races, a big shift in the scores brought several tight fleets closer together and reignited several rivalries. The final day of WIRW week brings a mix of feelings. For those that have been at the regatta for the entire week, it’s nearly time to return to “real life,” and those coming in partway through are just getting into the swing of things. Blurry-eyed racers took to the now familiar waters of Oak Harbor with a shifty westerly breeze filling or not filling the sails. The light winds gave some advantage to the light sport boats, but with many boats only a few points from the podium everyone was fighting hard ‘til the bitter end. With the highlights of summer racing behind us, the racing crowd looks towards the weeknight series to hold us over until the weekend regattas of the fall are upon us. Keep checking here for the latest racing news and be sure to get out on the water and enjoy the Pacific Northwest summer!

P RTS OF CALL Words & Photos: Norris Comer Take any two visitors to Ketchikan and you’re bound to hear two very different stories. Located on Revillagigedo Island and within the Tongass National Forest, Alaska’s first and most southeastern town serves as a beacon to independent adventurers and luxuriating cruise ship passengers alike. As I write this, a local commercial fisherman with hands of leather could be commingling in The Alaskan Fish House with an exhausted Port Townsend sailor who recently crossed the R2AK finish line. Uncle Rob and Aunt Judith eavesdrop during a cruise-ship stopover. The fisherman and the sailor seek to best each other with sea stories while Rob and Judith listen in, mouths agape, and offer to pay for the beers as they reach for their fanny packs. Throw in the backdrop of historic sawmills and brothels turned souvenir shops with a few local dive bars, and one starts to get the flavor of the one and only Ketchikan. While it is tempting for visitors, whether they arrive on their own boats or a cruise ship, to treat Ketchikan as a rare port of call in wild Alaska, there’s plenty to see for an extended trip. More than 8,000 people happily live here year ‘round, and with the wealth of hiking trails, float plane companies, fishing opportunities, cruising grounds, cultural heritage, wildlife, and more, it’s easy to understand why. The climate of Ketchikan and most of the Tongass rainforest is mild, but also very wet due to the maritime influences. If you thought Seattle’s annual precipitation of around 37 inches a year was a lot, Ketchikan’s approximately 152 inches (over 12 feet) will leave you speechless. The flip side to the wetness is an annual average low of around 40 degrees Fahrenheit. It may be best to think of SE Alaska in general as Puget Sound on steroids rather than the stereotypical Iditarod-hosting, Mt. Denali-boasting, tundra-covered Alaska. For boaters, Ketchikan is one of the major bastions of civilization along the Inside Passage and usually the point of re-entry to the United States from Canadian waters to the south. Skippers will find plenty of moorage here and just about all the support infrastructure (service shops, boat yards, grocery stores, bars, etc.) one could ask for. Ketchikan sits on the eastern side of the Tongass Narrows. The main obstacles to approach are the variety of craft such as the airport ferry, the aforementioned cruise ships, float planes, commercial fishing vessels, tugs, barges, and more, that, when viewed all at once, are reminiscent of Richard Scarry’s Busy Town children’s book. As a result, it’s best to make the transit in daylight, especially during the summer. There are a variety of land accommodations available, ranging from the upscale Cape Fox Lodge to the economical Eagle View Hostel (tell Dale we sent you there).

Cruise Ship Hub Ketchikan’s cruise ship district is effectively a town within a town. When the cruise ships arrive between May and September, the local population doubles as ships unleash their passenger hordes upon the land until 1800 hours. The area is roughly bounded by Thomas Basin to the south and the Arctic Bar & Liquor Store to the north, and a walk down Main Street or Mission Street is rather lively when the cruise ships are in. Fur mongers peddle wolf pelts and pilots on the sidewalks offer flying tours of a lifetime. The Great Alaskan Lumberjack Show, one part roadside attraction and other lumber sporting event, is a hoot. Even if one doesn’t buy anything, there’s plenty to see and do.

Creek Street Stroll Modern Creek Street is a charming boardwalk through historic wood buildings perched over Ketchikan Creek that is a visitor must-do. Artisans selling watercolors of historic sites like the Tongass Historical Museum attracts the eye, and one can even watch the salmon running up the river below. In many ways, Creek Street feels like the cultural heart of the town. But Creek Street has a history, described on many informative plaques on the walk, that is quite scandalous. Whores! Yes, whores. Creek Street was an epicenter of prostitution, one of the town’s most profitable industries that peaked during Prohibition and was outlawed in the 1950s. Married Man’s Trail, now a walkable pathway, was historically the discreet backdoor route to the red-light district for those who didn’t want to be seen entering from the front. Stories abound of industrious madams who started with nothing and rose to become some of Alaska’s most powerful women, and of the decades-long struggle the working houses had with the god-fearing community. According to the local literature, Madam Annie Watkins, a black woman from Arkansas, was one of the most eloquent defenders of her community, “The picture you paint of Creek Street isn’t a pretty one… if some citizens would mind their own business, and stop running around, up and down the streets, trying to make trouble without a cause… we people could live in peace. We, too, have a soul, heart and feeling,” Watkins wrote to the Ketchikan Daily News in 1956. Annie’s Place and many other preserved working house still stand on the walk. Who else thinks Creek Street should be an HBO miniseries?

Tours Galore Alaska calls to adventurous souls, and Ketchikan has a concentrated offering of tours for just about everyone. Whether you’re looking for a guided bus tour or to ride a zip line through the Tongass rainforest canopy with Alaska Canopy Adventures, Ketchikan has it all. Float plane trips to Misty Fjords and fishing charters to chase down halibut and salmon are also very popular. We hopped aboard the Aleutian Ballad, a Deadliest Catch crabbing vessel turned commercial fishing tour boat, and highly recommend it. The actual guys from the show walk guests through the process with the real gear in live time, and all the various captured critters are placed in an open aquarium to be interacted with. We even caught a Giant Pacific Octopus to play with! The best resource to turn to is the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau at 131 Front Street and visit-ketchikan.com.

Wild Side Visitors to Alaska should bring a good pair of shoes, for America’s largest and wildest state is ripe for hiking. Ketchikan has a great system of trails of varying difficulty that could keep somebody busy for quite some time. A scenic trail system that’ll easily burn up an afternoon winds around Lake Ward, and one can venture uphill a few miles to Lake Perseverance or even farther for an all-day, well-planned adventure. Deer Mountain and Dude Mountain are also local favorites. Be responsible! The rough-and-ready local Alaskans will be the first to warn you to tell somebody in town of your hiking plans, so check the weather, prepare for cold rain (no cotton clothing!), and pick up a free loan locator beacon from the Ketchikan Visitors Bureau. The locals have more than their fair share of trail horror stories from unprepared scrubs. You will not impress anybody by being a tough guy and getting lost. Be smart and enjoy!

Totem Bright State Park

The original inhabitants of Ketchikan are the native peoples who have lived on the island for thousands of years, and the cultural impact is apparent everywhere one turns. Totem Bight State Park is a must and may be the finest collection of totem poles I’ve ever been to. The totems are woven together with a forested trail and plenty of fascinating information. According to the information at the park, totem poles were traditionally allowed to fall with age and left to rot to give back to the Earth. It was up to the community to re-carve the story into a new totem. Consequently, the totems in the park are the results of a resurgence of the practice from the early/mid 20th century. A $2 northbound public bus ticket takes you right from downtown to the park entrance, which has an admission fee of $5.

Ketchikan is one of the best towns in the area for boaters to resupply as one of the largest, best connected communities along the Inside Passage. As far as food is concerned, you’ll find a wider selection here than most places in Southeast Alaska. A Safeway in the Ketchikan Plaza mall will be a welcome sight for cruisers seeking to resupply. The Alaskan Fish House on Salmon Landing is a staple for casual fish-n’-chips style fare. They also tout “Alaska’s finest craft beer, mediocre wine, and locally roasted coffee.” You can get three pieces of local Pacific cod [$12.99], silver salmon [$13.99], or Alaskan halibut [$18.99], and a bowl of Smoked Salmon Chowder with cornbread for $7.99. If you’re feeling more upscale, take the mechanical incline from Creek Street up to the Cape Fox Lodge. Popular appetizers include their famous Baked Brie and Crab Dip [$15] and the Crab and Jalapeño Wontons [$13]. Seafood entrees like Halibut Olympia [$36] are the norm on the full dinner menu. While you’re there, grab a cocktail at the bar and watch the twilight over Tongass Narrows.

BOAT LIFTS F E AT U R I N G

PHIL RIISE

“Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.”

—John F. Kennedy

E PHIL RIISE Phile Riise is the owner of Seaview Boatyard Inc. and manages his three boatyards in Washington. He joined the company in 1974 at the age of 20 under the original owners, Roland Cooper and Bob Burgeson. He’s been working hard and climbing the ladder ever since. “Curiosity is my middle name,” says Riise. “As far as I’m concerned, the best policy for hiring people is if I get somebody who is curious and driven, I’ll take him or her all day long. That’s a great candidate as far as I’m concerned.” Although he says his family was too poor to own nice Tonka truck toys, he now proudly says, “I get to play with life-size Tonka toys.” His son, Tiel Riise, works with Phil at Seaview as Vice President of operations. Of Tiel, "He couldn't make a father more proud," says Phil.

xperienced boat owners are familiar with the haul-out ritual (and the anxiety associated with it). Most of us are too nervous watching our precious babies being hoisted up out of the water onto the slings to pause and appreciate the lift itself, but there’s a lot going on worthy of our interest. Industrial-sized boat lifts are far more than simply metal crossbeams with cables, especially these days when innovation increasingly reigns over tradition both on and off the water. New players on the industrial boat lift scene, notably in Italy, are starting to break out designs that resemble remote-controlled robots more than maritime forklifts. Even features like the cab, the cage in which the operator manually controls the lift, are being phased out. The imagination goes a bit wild at this juncture. Perhaps boat lifts will be taking verbal commands in the near future? Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey could become a cautionary tale. To learn more about boat lifts, we turn to Phil Riise, owner of Seaview Boatyard, Inc., for his insight into the topic. Riise owns and manages three boatyards in Washington and is well acquainted with the industrial boat lift market, having just purchased a brand new, state-of-the-art Italian boat lift from the company Boat Lift. The new 80-ton machine

is expected to be installed come October at the Seaview Boatyard in Shilshole Bay Marina. Q: Firstly, I’ll state the obvious and say that I know next to nothing about the boat lift world and I’m looking forward to learning a thing or two. Do you have any tips for boaters who are planning to utilize a yard’s lift? The first thing that a boat owner really needs to be aware of is, no matter where they go, is to know the bottom of your boat. Critically, know where the shaft exits the hull. Go online and make sure you have an underbody drawing of your boat and make sure the operator knows where to set the slings. If you don’t have that, it’s at your fingertips so you’ve got no excuse. At our yard we have a boat catalogue so we know where to set the sling. It’s imperative the boat owner makes it his or her responsibility as well. The operator needs to know way before the boat is in the slings. Number two, it’s a good idea for the boat owner to take an assessment of the lift. Are the slings dirty or worn? Is the lift clean and orderly, or is there oil dripping everywhere? Everyone should understand where to haul the boat and are things in good shape. Presentation is a big deal in this business. If things look pretty rough, you should consider hauling elsewhere. We at the Seaview yards have a strict maintenance regimen. Q: Are there many different kinds of industrial boat lifts? You bet. There are several lift manufacturers that build machines around the world. We’ve got two or three main ones in the United States, with the clearly dominant one being Marine Travelift of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. There used to be more industrial

boat lift makers in the States, but it’s principally down to three. For our lifts, starting in 1980 when we bought our first, we’ve bought 13 Marine Travelifts over the tenure of our business. We’ve mostly been very satisfied and they are the local standard. Interestingly enough, though, Italian boat lift manufacturers seem to be on the rise, and they have two or three players as well. I decided to expand my horizons a bit when I knew we needed a new lift for the first time, and have been very impressed with some of the Italian companies. Q: So Travelift is a brand, not a type? One always hears Travelift as if it is a type of machinery, but is it more like saying Ziploc instead of plastic bag? Yes, Marine Travelift is a brand and it’s been in business for a long time, I want to say since the 1950s. I was good friends with original owners of Travelift and bought all my lifts from them except this last one. Since I’ve owned and operated 13 Travelifts, most of the time I’ve considered them the Cadillac. They still build a good lift to this day, and are still widely considered the industry leader. But like everything, you have to continue to innovate and be competitive in the marketplace, and there are other ones that are nipping at their heels now. Q: What kinds of innovations helped lead Marine Travelift to the top? In the case of Marine Travelift, they had superior maneuverability and features that separated them from the competition. Ninety-degree steering was new back then, so the two rear tires could stay stationary during a turn and the lift could move in place. Maneuverability with the Marine Travelift was key, and it made them superior to everyone


else out there at that time and for the foreseeable future, up until recently. Also, the maneuverability of the adjustment of the slings was new. Our first machine had one sling that was adjustable with the other fixed, an AMO model. That used to be new, but now there are two different styles. With the older AMO models, one sling hoist is fixed so that it will not move while the other is adjustable. The one sling is on the forward side of the main beam, and the aft sling toward the cab is maneuverable and had to be adjusted from the cab. Most current models out there are BFM (Beam Forward Machines), which means the beam is forward and the two sling adjusts are behind the beam. Both slings are adjustable. The new lift that we’re purchasing is a BFM. You have a lot of maneuverability with the slings, and the operator can adjust everything from the cab. One of the newest moves for Marine Travelift is that they offer the ability to operate from the cab and also via remote control. You can operate alongside the machine, or wherever for that matter. It’s very beneficial, safer and more efficient. We bought our first remote control from Marine Travelift in 2004. It’s fairly standard today, but back in 2004 it was an option. That purchase is still in operation, it’s our 165-ton machine in Bellingham. There are a few manufacturers that don’t offer remote packages, but the more innovative ones do offer that package. Q: Let’s get a sense of scale here. What are big and small sizes when we’re talking about industrial boat lifts? In large part, if you looked at a cross section of the typical Pacific Northwest boatyard, the average boatyard comes in at around 55 tons like at our West Yard. There are tons that are 30or 35-ton lifts as well. As you get higher in capacity, the number starts shrinking. It’s related to the cross section of the average boat size and it makes sense. At one point, I had three in that range, and currently I have two. We will probably hang onto our 55-ton machine at the Shilshole yard because it’s a capacity thing. We’re so busy we really need two machines. At the North Yard, we

have two lifts, a 65- and 35-ton. Q: So what’s the big deal about the new lift from Italy you’ve ordered? You seem pretty excited! I’ve been actively looking for a new machine for at least two or three years now, and thinking about it for even longer. It’s my belief that anyone in business needs to look at their market and how to serve their market to the best of their ability, and look for new opportunities. We’ve seen an increase with regards to boat size in our customer base, and a lot of marinas have reconfigured a lot of their slips to accommodate larger vessels. We looked at our location in Seattle, and it’s a fairly small yard. We went through a recent expansion in 2016 because we were at capacity during peak season. So in conjunction with the size of the yard, I was looking for machines that would be more maneuverable. We added around 10,000 square feet, approximately 12 more boats stalls. Currently we can work with boats up to 60 feet, but we are working and expanding to serve boats up to 75 feet. It all comes down to maneuverability. I went out to bid, I looked at three different lift manufacturers and, ironically, one of them was in the States, Marine Travelift, and the other two were in Italy. I, of course, knew about Marine Travelift and have been a loyal customer, but I heard from folks to take look at Ascom in Italy. I took at hard look and went down to check some out in San Diego, and was about ready to make an order but came to know

another one, Boat Lift in Italy. I got to tell you, it was cool to put my head up and look around a bit for once. Really do my due diligence and see what’s out there. Before I knew it, three weeks later, I found myself flown to Italy to check out the facility. I was blown away! The largest size machine they had was a 400-ton, the smallest a 60-ton. Ours is an 80-ton. Q: What are some specifics about Boat Lift machines that you like? These guys have a huge manufacturing and fabrication company and are into building robotics. This machine is all-wheel drive, that means four-wheel steering, and the remote package is standard. The lift can turn 90 degrees virtually in place while crabbing. Amazing stuff! It can basically turn inside of itself. Talk about ultimate maneuverability. There’s also no cab. When I saw that, I asked, ‘Where’s the cab?’ and the sales rep I was with replied, ‘Why do you need a cab?’ The cool thing is that it has three different ways of operation: remote, computer backup (a pendant hardwired to it like a computer mouse), and if all else fails, you can open a compartment to operate the machine manually. On top of that, there’s two other items. We ordered what we call “extreme beam forward,” so the top beam, instead of being in line with the forward columns, is four feet forward. It gets that top beam away from the main beam so things like stays don’t have to

Seaview, home to lifts great and small.

be detached. Some will, but many won’t. The extreme beam forward also gets the obstacle away from flybridge and tophouse, so you can properly sling the boat and still have a balanced load.

Nomar Bumpers are a softmounted bumper which absorbs impact and allows you to slide in and out of your slip with NO FRICTION, DRAG OR MARRING of your hull. This makes for a safer & less stressful docking experience by allowing everyone to stay on board. Nomar® Bumpers eliminate the need for fenders & are perfect for tight docking situations and narrow slips. They also allow the vessel closer to the dock for easier and safer boarding.

overhead and fog may obscure the land, making glimpses of the rockbound coast even more awe-inspiring. In theory, you could sail north from Rose Harbour up the west coast of Moresby Island and east through Skidegate Narrows, but the eastbound transit of the Narrows is considered riskier for sailboats. Visiting Skidegate Inlet before transiting the Narrows also allows a visit to the Sandspit Coast Guard Station to check on the status of navigation marks and discuss your approach to the Narrows.

Rose Harbor Most cruisers will make Rose Harbour their last stop in Haida

Gwaii. A former industrial whaling center, Rose Harbour has some of the few privately owned properties in the park. An afternoon spent poking among the old machinery and structures of the whaling center is intriguing. This is a place to relax – to make last minute repairs for the return trip, to compare stories with other boaters, and perhaps to eat at one of the several guesthouses. It’s also a place to wait for the right weather. We waited out a southerly gale there on our first trip and a northerly gale on our second. Our two trips to Haida Gwaii have been among the most interesting and rewarding of our North-

S’Gang Gwaay mortuary poles. west cruises. We learned about a culture that almost vanished, saw and admired the famous monumental Haida art, enjoyed fantastic scenery and wildlife, and tested our navigational skills to the utmost.

Have questions about how the Classifieds work? Look no further! I placed my ad on January 5, why is it not in the January issue? The deadline for ad submission is the 5th of each month for the NEXT month’s issue. In the above example, the January issue would have come out on January 1st. You cannot retroactively place an ad in a magazine that has already been printed.

What is the best way to ensure that my ad ends up in the issue I want it in? Sometimes snail mail submissions arrive too late to be put in the issue for which they were intended. The most efficient way to place your classified ad is to use the very simple form on our website. Just go to the Place a Classified section, upload your photo, type up your copy, and pay via Paypal (you do not need to have a Paypal account to do this, just a viable credit card).

48 OFFSHORE YACHTFISHER 1986 WORTH WAITING 4 just returned from 4 year Mexico cruise; great live aboard. Good condition, well equipped. Twin Cummins; 12kw generator; solar, SSB, GPS, AIS, radar, VHF. 2 stateroom; down galley/settee; large queen master berth, large cockpit, new bottom paint, varnish. Detail specs, description & over 50 pictures @mvworthwaiting4.com. $199,900 Anacortes. P07176-12

I placed an “Until it Sells” ad, why has my ad been removed from the magazine? If you refer to our “Place a Classified” page, you’ll see that the “Until it Sells” ad will run up to 6 months. However, if the boat sells BEFORE that six months is up, we will remove the ad per the client’s request. The benefit of an “Until it Sells” ad is that you’re paying only $100 more than a one month ad for up to five more months.
