FROM THE HELM

Feeling the Love

As I write this, the preSeattle Boat Show rush grips Northwest Yachting’s Ballard headquarters. Running from January 26 to February 3, this year promises to be one for the records books, notably due to the all-new third (in-water!) Norris Comer location at Bell Harbor that includes the free parking garage. Credit where credit is due, and the organizers of the show at the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) deserve a heap of praise for the continual push to increase the profile and visibility of the Seattle Boat Show year after year. Well done! Our booth at the CenturyLink location, East 614, is coming together nicely. To make the boat show buzz even louder, I’ve been roped onto a panel as part of the event’s seminar lineup. If you pick up this issue in time, swing on by Stage #3 in North Hall for "How to Write About Your Boating Adventures" at 15:15 hours on January 29. The world needs more salty writers, and the all-star panel lineup includes successful authors Wendy Hinman (Sea Trials: Around the World on Duct Tape and Bailing Wire), Elsie Hulsizer (Voyages to Windward: Sailing Adventures on Vancouver Island's West Coast), and Christine Smith (More Faster Backwards), legendary publisher and editor of the Waggoner Cruising Guide Mark Bunzel, and of course, me, the token magazine guy. Awaken your sleeping writer, boaters! It’s also my pleasure to welcome our new salesperson, Wendy Pedersen. Look out for Wendy at the Seattle Boat Show, for she’s ready to make an introduction whether you want to conquer the Pacific Northwest market or just say hello. “I’m very excited to be on the Northwest Yachting crew!” says Pedersen. When it comes to advertising, she brings nearly two decades of professional experience that started during her internship days with KING 5 as a Western Washington University student, class of 2000. Pedersen went on to work with sales, communications, and marketing at KING 5 for several years before working as a research analyst with Nielsen Ratings at KING 5. She successfully worked at a KSTW and Comcast in sales before returning to KING 5 for seven years as a broadcast salesperson.

“What I love most about what I do is helping businesses grow,” says Pedersen. “I’m not just trying to seal the deal, I’m making a mutually beneficial partnership to last. I’ve been looking to mix things up with new professional experience, and being a part of a boating publication like Northwest Yachting is an exciting opportunity to expand my horizons.” The calendar for February doesn’t get any less busy after the show, and right out of the gate, we’ve got the iconic Winter Rendezvous (February 9 to 11) in Poulsbo, Washington, to look forward to. If you’re a Puget Sound boater, this boating Mardi Gras with a Viking twist is such a uniquely Pacific Northwest event that you’ve got to check out. I’m planning to be there for the first time this year, a perfect way to unwind after nine days of Seattle Boat Show. Look for me at Gloggfest, the townwide glogg competition. Also on my mind is all the activity around Team Wright Yachts and R2AK preparation. For those who missed the announcement feature last issue, I’m hopping aboard a Corsair 970 Sport this June to participate in the Pacific Northwest adventure race from Port Townsend, Washington, to Ketchikan, Alaska, with Team Wright Yachts. We are settling into our on-water training regimen, I’m planning my trip to Vietnam to check out our ride (currently under construction), and juggling a few awesome developments behind the scenes. Stay tuned, for this adventure is just getting started! Yes, February is all about love for the watery lifestyle and Pacific Northwest. We’ve got a lot of great content in here, including my favorite Perfect Lines centerfold image thus far (hint: we’re getting artsy and fishy). Additionally, we’d like to extend our thanks to the staff of the Hydroplane and Race Boat Museum of Kent, Washington, who were an invaluable and expert source for much of the historic imagery in our Hero Hydros feature. We also had some help from the exellent Seattle Now & Then blog run by Paul Dorpat. From our helm to yours, we hope that you have a happy Valentine’s Day on the water. Whether you’re sailing into the sunset with your loved one, or celebrating yourself with a refreshing paddle in your trusty kayak, we hope you are feeling the love this February.

Clippers Ride Again

Youngest Skipper, Nicola Henderson, Leads Visit Seattle Crew to Victory By Evin Moore

On January 16, the 70’ clipper racing sailboat Visit Seattle sailed over the finish line of Airlie Beach in Whitsunday, Australia, securing a first-place win for Race 6 of the All-Australian Leg of the high-profile Clipper Round the World Race. This win makes skipper Nicola (Nikki) Henderson the first woman and the youngest skipper ever to win a race in the global sailing contest. The boat Visit Seattle, sponsored by Seattle’s destination marketing organization, made the win at 15:05:36 local time. This stop marked the end of the All-Australian 4th Leg of the race, and the start of the Asian Pacific 5th Leg. The Whitsunday stopover also marks the half-way, 20,000-nautical mile (nm) point of the 40,000-nm event. The Clipper Round the World Race was started in 1996 by Sir Robin KnoxJohnston, the legendary first person to sail solo non-stop around the world. The

The Big Swap Meet Des Moines Yacht Club's Annual Market By Eva Seelye

Boaters from around the Pacific Northwest are emptying their lockers for this year’s annual swap meet at Des Moines Yacht Club (DMYC) happening March 24 from 09:00 to 15:00 hours. For the last 19 years, hundreds of buyers gather from every nook and cranny—sometimes even as far as Chehalis — to purchase both new and used marine-related items. Expect everything from nautical dishes, engines, tools, electronics, and boat seats to SUPs and even toilets. “Just about anything you need for marine life [will] be available,” remarks Shannan McCaslin – DMYC Swap Meet event co-manager. Find larger items such as dinghies, trailers, and even small boats in the outdoor section of the venue. With DMYC’s women’s group, First Mates (created for women whose interests are more than water-oriented), providing coffee and baked goods in the morning, and chili and

hot dogs for sale in the afternoon, it’s easy to comfortably stick around and spend a few hours or even an entire day browsing the stands. Who knows what other hidden plunder will make its way to the largest indoor marine swap meet in the state? The meet’s proceeds will support the First Mates’ mission to provide scholarships to high school students. Have a few items you’d like to sell? Purchase a space of your own or buddy up with a friend in one of the available indoor or outdoor spaces. Registration is open through Saturday, March 17, 2018. Reserve your spot by simply mailing in your registration form (found online at desmoinesyachtclub.com). Spaces are priced as follows: indoor spaces: $35; outdoor spaces: $15; commercial spaces: $100 (commercial spaces are limited).

Bradley Pilz, a local yacht broker with Denison Yachts, passed away at the age of 51 on December 28, 2017. Brad was an outdoorsman and boater who grew up cruising the rivers and lakes of his native Wenatchee, Washington. Brad attended Western Washington University and got his start in the boating industry in Bellingham. He spent the first years after college working in Sun Valley, Idaho, and it was there that he met his wife Evelyn. While in Sun Valley, Brad enjoyed kayaking, hiking in the mountains, biking, and rock climbing. Missing the sea, Bradley Pilz Brad and Evelyn moved to Seattle and started their family and a new business. He opened Sterling Yacht Center on Lake Union. Sterling operated as a yacht maintenance and repair facility for 16 years, earning a reputation for going above and beyond, with employees traveling as far as Alaska and Canada to help customers. In 2007, Brad went to work for Selene Seattle and quickly advanced to General Manager. He joined Denison Yachts in 2013, where he worked as a broker. Brad, like many brokers, forged longterm relationships with customers who remained friends for years. He was an advocate of sailing in the Pacific Northwest, spending his free time cruising the Salish Sea. Beside boating, Brad loved mountain biking and woodworking. He is survived by his wife Evelyn and daughters Brittany and Tessa, and his many friends from a life of service and dedication.

Sea Star Wasting Disease Resurfaces By Eva Seelye

West Coast starfish have been holding on for dear life since 2013, fighting to survive a mysterious disease that first appeared off the Olympic Peninsula and resulted in the loss of millions of bright-colored stars that light up the dark waters of the Pacific. The disease, now identified as the sea star wasting syndrome, first affected ochre sea stars (the most common species), mottled sea stars, leather stars, and six-armed stars before dramatically spreading to additional species from Alaska to Mexico. Affected sea stars now include the sunflower star, rainbow star, giant pink star, giant star, vermilion star, and bat star, with the sunflower and ochre stars experiencing the most geographically expansive and welldocumented declines. Though reports have shown signs of recovery in small areas of southern California, there is no evidence of a wide-scale recovery, and the disease is still affecting a substantial amount of starfish along North America’s Pacific Coast. The disease is gruesome, with the initial symptom of decaying lesions. The sea stars’ arms then begin crawling away from its body during the fragmentation stage. Lucky enough for sea stars, regeneration is in their genes.

However, if the sores open, internal organs are likely to extrude from the deflated starfish and most stars can’t survive. Sometimes the disease runs its course within just a few days. Similar disease-related sea star events have happened before, but not quite to this extent. It’s hypothesized that environmental conditions may have contributed to the outbreak, but the cause of the wide-spread disease remains unknown. Even with this devastation, one thing’s evident — our sea stars are incredibly resilient. Even with no signs of full recovery on the horizon, these robust echinoderms are far from extinct. Their ability to produce thousands of offspring, with an average lifespan of 30 years, helps in their fight for survival. Last year’s babies are now under the scope of observation and are continuing to grow and mature with only a small number affected by the disease. However, the slow loss of a vital species doesn’t go without some sort of ecological shift. Urchins are on the rise without their sunflower star predators, causing more algae-dominated communities and large areas of bare rock and crustose algae called “urchin barrens.” It’s an ongoing issue in our Pacific waters, one that scientists aren’t taking lightly.

A lifetime of Ocean Sailing Knowledge in 430 pages 200,000 Miles - A Life of Adventure by Jimmy Cornell By Greg Van Belle

There are few, if any, adventure sailors as accomplished as Jimmy Cornell. He has sailed over 200,000 miles in all oceans of the world, circumnavigated three times, and completed a successful transit of the Northwest Passage. His sailing credentials are unquestionable, and his knowledge of the cruising world is unparalleled. His publication credentials are impressive as well. My dog-eared copy of his

most famous book, World Cruising Routes has inspired many blue water fantasies of my own while I waited out the dark winter months in the Pacific Northwest. Cornell’s latest book, 200,000 Miles - A Life of Adventure, has taken up permanent residence on my nautical bookshelf. It is the perfect combination of adventure, imagery, and practicality.

miles monohull record with an average of 22.4 knots. But the 27,000-mile course became more challenging after an unfavorable encounter in the water during the first leg of the trip. His IMOCA Open 60 yacht, Hugo Boss, collided with an unidentified object on Day 13 of his voyage, snapping off the yacht’s starboard foil and nearly ending his race. Determined to finish strong despite the loss of valuable time and continual autopilot issues, he employed a few DIY tricks that he kept up his waterproof sleeve, and embraced a no-sleep mentality to finish the long haul in second place. He crushed Britain’s past record of 80 days with the fastest recorded time of 74 days, 19 hours, 35 minutes, and 15 seconds, leaving the French winner Armel Le Cléac’h with only a 16-hour lead.

The 2017 Yachting Journalists’ Association (YJA) Yachtsman and Young Sailor of the Year awards have been announced! Winners of these prestigious awards embody the apex of exceptional sailing and possess remarkable skills and expertise among established yachtsmen and women. Congratulations to the Yachtsman of the Year, Alex Thomson, and Young Sailor of the Year, Montel Fagan-Jordan.

He sailed from France to the Equator and around the Cape of Good Hope in record time (9 days, 7 hours, 2 minutes in the first leg; 17 days, 22 hours, 58 minutes in the second leg) in addition to setting an unprecedented 537 nautical-

Skiers Weep and Boaters Play: A Weak La Niña Year By Evin Moore

Why has it been relatively warm and clear in the Pacific Northwest this season? Wasn’t this supposed to be a La Niña year? It turns out that we boaters aren’t the only ones who noticed. This winter is a La Niña year in the Pacific Northwest, but the predicted cold temperatures and above average snowfall has not manifested. All across the western U.S., the 2017-2018 winter has had warmer than average temperatures and lower than average precipitation, with the exception of the western Cascades and Olympics. While La Niña usually means cold and snowy, the northwest and central part of Washington are notorious for breaking that rule. The surface-temperature of the Pacific Ocean has been affected this year by a high-pressure ridging west of California and Oregon. An area of abnormally warm water in the Pacific Ocean could also be a contributor to the warm weather. Every mid-winter, the Washington Department of Ecology holds its Water Supply Availability Committee (WSAC) meeting, where representatives from the Office of Washington State Climatologists, National Weather Service, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Army

Corps of Engineers, U.S. Bureau of Reclamations, and Natural Resources Conservation Service come together to give their report on the conditions and size of the snowpack in the Cascades and Olympic mountains. This year, the WSAC meeting is set for February 2, when experts will discuss the higher than average temperatures and the belowaverage snow fall. While snowpack levels aren’t as high as expected, they are building steadily. Most pack levels are at least 80% of normal, with some larger than average. The Upper Yakima snowpack looks encouraging, but if the water levels are too low during our summer months, the Bureau of Reclamation can slow the flow of water out of the Yakima River Basin, ensuring a steady flow of water. The snowpack of Oregon is in much worse shape than Washington’s, with some areas only experiencing 30% of the average snowfall. While warmer, drier winters are good for boating, nobody is keen about the prospect of a drought. For now, boaters, especially in Oregon, may get as many weekends of fun under their belts as the skiers this winter.

Get in Touch! We want to hear from you and see your boating pictures too!

Sailing as an activity yields some pretty epic stories, but many go unheard or forgotten. For the last few years, Corinthian Yacht Club (CYC) has turned that around and motivated fellow sailors with the astonishing, and often daring, racing and cruising experiences of CYC members and guest speakers with their Winter Speaker Series. Head over to Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle every Friday this February for an exciting dose of inspiration. February 2 marks the first of the Winter Speaker Series at CYC Clubhouse. Join Scott and Kristen Meilicke and their family as they guide you through their experience sailing from Seattle to Mexico and making it just halfway back. Two parents, two kids, and two dogs dwell on their time aboard Mango, from deck work, dolphins, and lost dinghies to almost-lost dogs on their West Coast adventure. If the evening’s title, Remember When the Boat Caught Fire? doesn’t ignite interest, what will? Can’t make it on February 2? Sign up for Escape to Alaska: Ditching the City for the Final Frontier to spend an evening exploring Alaska’s wild coast with software engineer and sailing enthusiast Hays Clark, wife Jen, and their two kids. Join them on February 9 to learn what it takes to leave your 9 to 5 behind and embark on an 11-week journey. They’ll share tips and tricks for a successful voyage accompanied by some beautiful imagery from along the way. Other evenings from the Winter Speaker Series include Canaling in the Netherlands and Sold the House, Packed up the Kids, and went Sailing. Stop by the CYC Clubhouse from 18:00 – 19:00 hours for a social hour with dinner for just $6 before the program starts at 19:00 hours. Reserve your spot online at cycseattle.org.

The Meilicke family takes the audience aboard their Seattle to Mexico adventure on February 2 at the Corinthian Yacht Club. Talk about family goals!

NOAA: 2017 The Costliest-ever Year for U.S. Natural Disasters By Evin Moore

The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI), a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) organization, has recently announced that 2017 was the costliest year on record for the U.S. when it came to severe weather. In 2017, the U.S. experienced 16 separate weather and climate disasters that resulted in $1 billion

dollars of damage or more. This year ties 2011 for total number of $1 billion-or-more disasters, and includes three hurricanes, two flooding events, three major tornado outbreaks, five major storm events, the freeze in Georgia, a drought in North Dakota, and Western firestorms. Even though 2017 is tied with 2011 for the number of $1 billion-

or-more events, the total monetary damage for the 2017 season has set a new-record of $306 billion. This beats 2005, which set a record of $214.8 billion, due largely to hurricanes Dennis, Katrina, Rita, and Wilma. Of this year’s hurricane and other natural disasters, the insurance industry will be paying for about $135 billion worth of

damage, a new record. According to a press release from Munich RE, a major reinsurer, the total cost of natural disasters worldwide for 2017 was $330 billion. 2011 holds the record for highest global cost, at $354 billion, due mostly to earthquakes that year in Japan. Last year was certainly a year of extreme weather events, and

while not a new baseline for the following year, there does seem to be an increase in the average amount of fiscal damage caused by natural disasters every year, even when adjusted for inflation. The NCEI is often called upon to give predictions of future weather patterns, and they have compiled a list of all $1 billion-or-more events from 1980 to 2017. Since 1980, there have been 219 weather events that cost at least $1 billion (adjusted for inflation). For the years between 1980 and 2017, the annual average was 5.8 events. In the last five years, 2013 to 2017, the average was double, at 11.6 events. This indicates that the number of very destructive weather events has gone up and will continue to go up. The rising global average temperature could be a key driver in this change, as warmer air holds more rain, warmer waters create stronger hurricanes, and rising ocean waters cause more flooding, which all leads to stronger storms. Data from NOAA shows that the U.S. had its third warmest year on record, and Asian countries that experienced strong flooding also had above average temperatures. If curious, the announcement and accompanying data is available online at ncdc.noaa.gov/billions.

Massive flooding destroyed lots of property in Houston, Texas - but the worst damage has been to the the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, where significant portions of the island are still without power months later.

Mentor The truly exceptional Amazon 44, Mentor… Amazon 44 Imagine buying a well-designed, structurally 2007 • $310,000 sound steel hull and then getting to finish and fit it out to the exact specifications you’d like in an ocean-going, round-the-world-cruiser. Well, that’s exactly what Mentor’s owners did with this one-of-a-kind Amazon 44 cutter. Constructed by renowned steel boat builder Dieter Pollack, this round-chinned, raised salon vessel truly has no equal. While the hull demonstrates Pollack’s expertise in steel fabrication, the rest of the vessel – equipment, interior finish, deck layout, sail configuration – are a unique combination only found on Mentor. In 2003 with a seasoned eye reflecting their exacting standards for a world voyaging yacht, the owners began the build out of Mentor. In 2007 they launched, casting off her lines for a shakedown cruise and then setting sail for warmer climes – Mexico, Central America through the Panama Canal and on to the east coast of the United States. With raised salon, library, two staterooms and workshop, Mentor has a layout that easily supports a cruising couple or family with a child or two. Extensive load carrying capacity and tankage add to her capability, warm Honduran mahogany joinery provides warmth and traditional craftsmanship, and her tall rig easily catches the wind for superb sailing. Now back in the Pacific Northwest, she is ably plying the waters of the Salish Sea, Inside Passage and Southeast Alaska, ready for her next voyage to faraway ports and anchorages.

Bullish Market: 2017 Washington Boat Sales By Norris Comer

The Washington Department of Licensing and Washington Sea Grant have released a 2017 year-end report for new boat sales in the state, and there are many positive signs of growth for the market. The fourth quarter of 2017 compares quite favorably to the fourth quarter of 2016. New boat sales for the fourth quarter of 2017 increased by 24.5 percent in units and 30 percent in value

when compared to the fourth quarter of 2016. Additionally, brokerage boat sales increased for the fourth quarter of 2017 by 23.9 percent in units and 24.2 percent in value when compared to same quarter in 2016. Total new boats sold for the entire year increased by 249 boats from 2016, which is a 6 percent increase in total boats sold. What’s more, the total value of all new boats sold in 2017

was $218 million, a 15 percent increase from 2016. All told, the fourth quarter of 2017 raked in about $15.6 million more for the state’s industry than the fourth quarter of 2016. This news of growth continues the multi-year trend for the state’s boat sales. With regards to new boat sales, the fourth quarter of 2016 saw a 9.5 percent increase in units and 24.8 percent in value compared to the fourth quarter

of 2015. Brokerage boats saw a similar increase of 12.2 percent in units and 24.7 percent in value. If you’re really interested in the numbers, Washington Sea Grant’s website’s Community Outreach page has publicly available quarterly boat sales going back to 2007 (wsg.washington. edu).

Washington Sea Grant: $1.1 Million for Aquaculture Research By Norris Comer

Washington Sea Grant, based at the University of Washington’s College of the Environment, recently received $1.1 million ($1,123,669) in federal funding for aquaculture research. The funding was part of a total $9.3 million of aquaculture grant money from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) that has been distributed among 18 state-level Sea Grant programs across the nation. “Washington shellfish farmers have led the nation in production of high-quality cultured products for decades,” said Penny Dalton, director of Washington Sea Grant, in a press release. “Two of the projects will focus on environmental challenges the industry faces. The third will pilot commercial operations to grow sablefish.”

The lion’s share of the $1.1 million for Washington Sea Grant, $824,144, is designated for developing sablefish (aka black cod) aquaculture. The project is a collaboration between University of Washington scientists, NOAA, and tribal experts to grow 10,000 sablefish to harvest size. Another $149,530 is meant to develop genetic risk assessment tools and evaluate management strategies to mitigate shellfish diseases, while $149,995 is meant to research the functional role of shellfish habitat compared to natural habitat. Interestingly, some of those funds are meant to address “two major barriers to the sustainable growth of shellfish aquaculture in Washington: public perception and permitting.” Indeed, in the wake of the accidental farmed Atlantic salmon release last summer in the San

The grants were awarded through two competitions to select projects to develop domestic shellfish, finfish, and seaweed aquaculture industries. NOAA received 126 proposals that together requested nearly $58 million in federal funds. That Washington Sea Grant secured its $1.1 million is quite impressive.

Juan Islands and growing movement to ban farmed salmon in the state, aquaculture as a whole has suffered in the sphere of local public opinion. Will aquacultured sablefish grow into a successful, publicly embraced industry after this research? Only time will tell. Learn more at Washington Sea Grant’s website, wsg.washington.edu.

Dear Northwest Yachting, In years past, boat owners who wanted their large boats shipped to Texas or maybe the Great Lakes would have the boat taken to Clarkston, Washington, across from Lewiston, Idaho, on the Snake River to have the boat picked up by the crane at the Port of Clarkston located about 1/4 mile above the first bridge. This fall I took a client's 50' boat up there and low and behold the crane is no longer in operation. Seems they were not getting enough business to justify the safety inspections. The fix was to rent a crane which had to be brought in all the way from Spokane. I think the bill was in the low four figures. I don't know where it would have been more cost effective to have the boat hauled out, but Clarkston is no longer a safe bet. Regards, Mike Ed: Thank you for the useful scuttlebutt, Mike. This is good information for our community, both for those in the industry or recreational boaters. Keep us in the loop!

Endurance 658 LRC-11 The new year is underway with a wave of 2018 boat models, among them the Endurance 658 LRC–11 from the Hampton Yacht Group. This trawler-style motoryacht is a natural for the cruising grounds of the Pacific Northwest, with both luxury and utilitarian design aspects. As you approaches a 658–11, you sees many of the tried and true trawler features. A pair of integrated stairs lead up from the large swim step to the covered cockpit. The cockpit itself is focused on entertainment with a dining table and seating. From the cockpit, the visitor has many options. Large, protected walkways with railings lead forward on both the port and starboard. The walkways are very deepset and should be safe in just about any sea state. On the bow, a large foredeck complete with integrated seating is a natural gathering space.

If visitors venture up a set of portside steps from the cockpit, they will enter the flybridge, one of the build’s primary design features. It’s a pretty classic setup, with open aft space, a dinghy lift for the tender, covered nav station, and plenty of entertainment space forward. Sometimes a classic setup is the standard for a reason. Like many luxury yachts of this size, the expansive interior is the big draw. With large glass windows and fine woodwork, the salon is essentially a living room with plenty of cushy seating and lots of table space. The open layout leads forward to the galley, a large dining table, and helm station. The skipper will not mind the helm alone, it seems. A flight of stairs leads upward to the flybridge, below takes you to four large staterooms, each with an en suite head. As one would expect from a luxury moto-

ryacht this size, the 658–11 will not leave even the most landlubbery of us wanting when underway. As far as performance is concerned, the 658–11 is equipped with twin Caterpillar (C-12.9) direct drive diesel engines, and the manufacturer touts a cruising speed of eight knots. Again a tried-and-true reliable setup, this yacht is meant to go the distance in trawler style. Engine access is easy and spacious as well, something both owners and technicians at the boatyard will appreciate. All in all, the Endurance 658 LRC -11 seems like the newest iteration of many classic designs that have done well in the Pacific Northwest and beyond, both in urbane and rugged settings. If you’re curious, one is on display at the Seattle Boat Show for your exploration pleasure. Contact Hampton Yacht Group (hamptonyachtgroup.com) for pricing.


New & Notable Boats

T40-EY (Tactical-One Edition) A new boat line hailing from the wild waters of B.C. seeks to blend the posh comforts of luxury yachts with the durability and overbuilt ruggedness of performance aluminum boats. Enter Richmond, B.C.based Tactical Custom Boats from builder Platinum Marine, which is touting their new 40’ T40-EY (Express Yacht)Tactical One design set to launch in April. The deep vee, planning hull shape coupled with the all-aluminum build and twin outboards (Seven Marine 627-hp), gives an outward appearance of sport or military boat. However, there are

some features that are downright jaw dropping: lithium iron batteries, Seakeeper Gyro Stablizer, racecar-style helm, full floation collar, and more. Coupled with the luxurious queen-size island master stateroom, gourmet galley, and enclosed head, there are definitely yachtie features to be found too. The manufacturer lists performance numbers that suggest this boat will be quite zippy, with a 35-knot cruising speed and 50-knot maximum speed. The twin outboards mentioned previously provide 1,254 horses of power, a generous amount for

a vessel of this size. The manufacturer lists a range of 550 miles. If you want fancy and tough, check out the T40-EY Tactical One. Keep an eye out for the first ones

this year! Contact Platinum Marine for more information or you can find more at tacticalcustomboats. com. The T40-EY Tactical One is listed at $1,092,000.

Beneteau Oceanis 45 Look for the Beneteau Oceanis 45 among local dealer Signature Yachts’ models gracing the Bell Harbor in-water location at the Seattle Boat Show. The French-designed, South Carolina-built 45 has been popular for years, with many iterations playing with the central layout and themes. This sailing yacht has modern Eurocruiser written all over it from the plumb bow to the ultra-wide transom that folds out into a swim step with swim ladder. The 45 has a modern combination in the cockpit that aesthetically resembles a racer (the dual helms, wide beam, low profile) with the entertaining functionality of a cruiser (the giant foldable table in the middle of the cockpit and generous stowage). The arch over the cockpit is a defining feature, that offers a multitude of benefits: longer companionway opening on deck, speaker

mount, boom management, dodger, etc. But these sailboats aren’t popular just because of the exterior, and the 45 is no exception. Below, you’re looking at a spacious, open cabin that takes full advantage of the yacht’s 14’ 9” beam. The galley sits immediately to port of the companionway, and the salon with plenty of cushioned seating and table space stretches forward. There are a few layouts offered from the

builder with three to four cabins and two to three heads. The master suite forward has a downright decadent single berth option for the owner who wants to feel like a captain. If interested in the Oceanis 45, come see Signature Yachts’ in-water model at the Seattle Boat Show! You can also find more information at signature-yachts.com. Contact them for boat options and pricing.

2018 Nordic Tug 34 The recreational-style Nordic Tugs from Burlington, Washington, are certainly recognizable and numerous in these waters. The line includes boats from 26’ to 54’. The 2018 iteration of the Nordic Tug 34 is a continuation in many ways of the storied line, built for extended cruising in locations like the Inside Passage and Great Loop. The 34 definitely has the look with the near-plumb bow and the general feel of a Nordic. A large swim step extends aft, perfect for a stowed dinghy while cruising, along with a relatively modest cockpit with bench seating. A short ladder leads up to an open bridge with railing protection and good views. The 34 comes equipped with an optional chariot bridge with second helm station. Nordic Tugs are generally considered home away from home by their

owners, and thus feature a large, cozy interior with lots of fine woodwork. Seating around a dining table sits starboard upon entry to the cabin. A few steps forward, one enters the open helm station with seating for company. The 34 is catered toward providing accommodations for a couple or two with two staterooms.

New & Notable Boats

Targa 30.1 We’ve been eyeing these rugged Finnish Targa boats for a few months since the local dealer Cardinal Yacht Sales took on the line. The new Targa 30.1 is one of the builder’s touted designs. The 30.1 is a lot of boat in a modest package, with a LOA of 33’ 1” and a generous beam 10’ 7”. Much of that beam is taken up by the signature Targa deck layout, with deep-set, gigantic walkways on both port and starboard that lead between an open cockpit with swim step aft and a large foredeck forward. Interestingly, wraparound group seating is in the foredeck, not the cockpit at the stern. The cockpit features bench-style seating near the stern and base of the open tophouse, where a humble two-step ladder leads one to the seating and helm above. The cockpit floor opens up to access the twin Volvo Penta inboard diesel engines (with options). The 30.1 has a handsome look to it, despite the length-to-beam ratio that may sound boxy on paper.

The novel quirks of the exterior are only magnified in the interior, in a good way. Cabin access from both starboard and port doors, unlike the classic aft entrance from the cockpit, leads right into the nav station, chart table, galley, and entrance to the v-berth (with two berths within). That’s right, the Finns have somehow combined all these things in a compact, and somehow perfectly functional and good-looking,

layout. Going aft, one passes the dinette (with foldable table and convertible seats) and then ends up in the aft cabin, where two more berths and an enclosed head are located. A written description doesn’t give all the clever, unorthodox, and refreshing tweaks of the Targa 30.1 justice. If interested, you can explore one at the Seattle Boat Show at the indoor CenturyLink Field location. You can find out more info and pricing details at cardinalyachtsales.com.

Specs LOA: 33’ 1” • Beam: 10’ 7” Displacement: 12,125 lbs. Tankage (Fuel/Fresh/Black): 158 gals./31 gals./26 gals. Local Dealer: Cardinal Yacht Sales, 360-647-5555

The Sailor’s Smartwatch Garmin quatix 5 Smart Watch / $550.00+ The quatix 5 wants to do it all–GPS navigation, autopilot control, race timing, and fitness tracking–in one compact time piece. This watch is the latest from Garmin’s Marine series and it was crafted with yachters in mind. The quatix 5 is made to integrate itself into your boat systems. For example, autopilot can be controlled right from the watch; connect it to the GHC 20 autopilot unit and steer the vessel from anywhere on board. Link it with a compatible Garmin chartplotter to see temperature, depth, wind, and speed live on your wrist. The quatix 5 comes equipped with GPS navigation and built-in altimeter, barometer, and a three-

axis electronic compass. Take some of the guesswork out of racing and take advantage of a virtual starting line displayed on the face of the Garmin smartwatch. With this tool and the race countdown feature, you’ll always know precisely how far you are from the start of a race. The quatix 5 also collects all your sport data, whether you are paddleboarding, kayaking, or water skiing. Your speed, distance traveled, distance per stroke, total number of strokes, and even lap times are all recorded and stored for later review. And when not on the water, use the fitness tracker to monitor everything from heart rate and total steps to calories burned.

The quatix 5 has a stainless steel case that measures 1.2” and a silicon or stainless steel band, and is waterproof up to 10 ATM (atmospheres), which means the watch can withstand 10 times the pressure at sea level. The quatix 5 can be found on garmin.com and is available in different styles from $550.

Just In Reach

Garmin InReach Explorer / $449.99 The Garmin InReach Explorer is a satellite two-way text communication device made for those who want to leave the beaten trail and be their own pathfinder, while giving themselves and their families peace of mind. Navigation, communication, and SOS services are all features of the Explorer, which uses the Iridium satellite network to stay connected anywhere a conventional cellphone would be well out of range of a cell tower. The Explorer allows you to exchange text messages with another Explorer in the field or any cellphone or e-mail address in the world, while GPS tracking lets

your family and friends follow your progress with preset waypoints. The device also provides GPS map guidance with a topography map, plus a built-in barometric altimeter, accelerometer, and compass. Weather reports are also at your fingertips with the standard and premium weather packages offered by Garmin. GEOS, a leading emergency response solution, handles any SOS sent by an Explorer. If you want to explore farther than you ever have, while staying in contact, think about the Garmin InReach Explorer, available from garmin.com for $449.99, plus subscription.

One Tough Tote

“The Last Bag” Tote Bag from eqpd / $30.00+

The people at eqpd believe that one of the ways you make a truly eco-friendly product is to make a product that never needs to be thrown away or replaced. The company, based in Washington's Methow Valley, set out to create a bag that will last a lifetime and never end up in a landfill. The Last Bag is a tote bag that’s as durable as it gets and aims to be the last such bag you’ll ever need. It may just be the thing for the marine environment. The bags are constructed out of vinyl-coated polyester fabric, which is often used in whitewater rafts and is

Totes come in three sizes; single-wide, double-wide, and a log tote, sized for firewood. They come in a solid build, a mesh build that can drain water, as well as a leather tote. The company even offers a Log Tote for bundles of freshly chopped firewood. Some design styles are more urbane than others. If you’re in the market for an eco-friendly bag, or just for a very sturdy product, check out the eqpd Last Bag tote at eqpdgear.com. The Last Bag comes in a variety of styles and colors, with a starting price of around $30.

The base and handles are made from recycled plastic, the thread is bonded nylon, and the rivets are made from black-oxidized brass and steel so they will never rust. Jonathan Baker is the founder of eqpd and senior designer at their Twisp manufacturing location. He has 20 years of industrial design experience working as a freelance designer, and started eqpd to reflect his philosophy of honest simplicity and durable design.

A Fish Finder for Everyone Deeper Smart Fishfinder 3.0 / $200.00 Designed to be “four fish finders in one,” the Deeper Smart Fishfinder 3.0 attempts to fill several niches at once. The Deeper can be used as an ice flasher to identify a great spot before you start drilling. You can attach it to serve as sonar on your kayak or power boat, and then easily move it to another vessel. And with a diameter of 2.5’’ and a weight of 3.2 oz., the Deeper can also be cast from the shore to locate a bountiful fishing spot for the day. The product automatically saves

every location it’s dropped in, so you never forget a great location again. With no wires and minimal set up, the manufacturers, Deeper Sonar, advertise the ability for an angler to get the Deeper working and in the water just minutes after opening it for the first time. Use your phone or iPad to download the Deeper app to see fish and submerged structures live on your screen. The Deeper can connect to your device at a maximum range of 150’, and has a

depth range of 3’ to 130’. It charges in two hours and lasts for four hours of continuous use. Check out deepersonar.com if you’re interested in upgrading your fishing tech. The device starts at $200, the app is free on iPhone and Android.

A Very Fishy Gift

Mystery Tackle Box Subscription / $14.99 - 24.99 The subscription box business, which sends subscribers a monthly box in the mail that contains an assortment of surprise goodies, has taken off in recent years. These services introduce their customers to brands and products they might never have tried before and offer special deals so subscribers can save money. There are boxes out there for every interest, from books to makeup to socks, and even rare meats. So, it’s about time that a subscription box for anglers has arrived. Mystery Tackle Box sends their customers a box every month filled with hand-picked lures. This service features over 100 brands and

introduces thousands of anglers to new products. The boxes are tailored to specific fishing interests such as bass, inshore saltwater, ice fishing, walleye, panfish, catfish, and trout fishing. Two levels of boxes are offered, with the regular priced at $14.99 and offering $25 in products, and the Pro going for $24.99 and offering $40 worth of products.

Lumitec Maxillume Flood Light / $1,000.00+ The annual Fisheries Supply boating product InNEWvation Award in the lighting category went to Lumitec for their Maxillume tr150 and x500 flood lights. These lights were designed by Lumitec for commercial application and work well for marine vehicles or dockside application. The tr150 provides 20,000 true measured lumens and the x500 provides 50,000 true measured lumens. Both are LED lights, which prevent hot-restrike issues or shut-

downs related to blown bulbs or ballasts. The Maxillume series are tested to military standards to resist shock and vibration. Lumitec lights are made of cast aluminum and tempered glass and sealed against water and dirt. If your boat has been a little too dim, think about checking out the Lumitec Maxillume flood lights series. The x500 retails for about $3,900 and the tr150 for $1,000. Both are available on fisheriessupply.com.

Grundéns Stormlight Jacket / $179.00

A winner of Fisheries Supply InNEWvation award in the plumbing category, the Trident 321 Series Ocean-Flex Hose is designed to be used in both commercial and recreational vessels for a variety of applications. Suitable to use in fuel fill, vent diesel and gasoline (Type A1), lube oil, wet exhaust, water, bilge, coolant, drains, and sanitation

applications. This hose resists aging, fire, heat, cold, and ozone. The tube and sleeve are made of black nitrile and are reinforced by multiple textile spirals and a dual steel wire helix. It is rated for temperatures ranging from -20° F to 212°F and comes in lengths of 12.5’, 25’, and 50’. If you want to improve your hose system, consider the award-winning products from Trident. Ocean-Flex hose is available at fisheriessupply.com. The 12.5’ length starts at $167.

The Clean Way is a simple solution to the problem of fuel burps, sprayed and splashed droplets, and overfills at the pump. The Clean Way is a device that can be fitted over your boat’s fuel fill opening and uses a chamber with a series of baffles to catch the fuel that can spill out during refueling. The mess is captured and then easily drains back into the fuel tank, or can be held temporarily in the chamber. Each device is made from a heavy-duty composite that is resistant to chemicals and fuels. The Clean Way can be used with gasoline or diesel fuel, and comes with adapters that allow it to be used with any deck fuel plate and fuel nozzle. A 1.5” deck fill, a 1.75” deck fill, and a 2” deck fill all come in the kit, along with small and large nozzle adapters. Choose between a 12” Clean Way or the new 10” model for easier storage. Keep your boat, yourself, and the waters you cruise clean from oil spills with the Clean Way Fuel Fill, available for $40 from cleanwayfuelfill.com.

A light shell coat from Grundéns, the Stormlight jacket, was built with anglers in mind. The jacket is made of stretchable two-layer nylon material that keeps you dry during heavy rainfall and constant spray, while remaining comfortably breathable. Grundéns’ founder, Carl Grundén was the son of a fisherman who entered the fishing industry as a ship’s chandler. When he realized that his customers needed waterproof clothing, he started producing it himself and founded Grundéns Regnkläder AB in 1926.

Carbon Power Firefly Oasis Microcell Carbon Foam Batteries The good news about marine batteries in 2018 is that there have never been so many options. However, psychologist Barry Schwartz’s Paradox of Choice comes to mind. More choices should leave consumers feeling liberated, but often the reality is simply an increase in anxiety. The difference in modern marine batteries goes all the way to the fundamental chemistry within, and a showdown of sorts is emerging between lead acid and lithium ion batteries within the recreational boating sphere. Absorbent glass mat (AGM) lead acid batteries h a ve t h u s f a r been stealing the show as maintenance-free, more efficient manifestations of the traditional wet lead acid batteries, while lithium ion batteries for the general recreational boater are still largely regarded as cost prohibitive and “in the works.” Among the AGM family of marine batteries is Firefly International Energy’s Oasis battery line, manufactured using Microcell™ Carbon Foam technology with impressive results. The concept is relatively

56 NORTHWEST YACHTING || FEBRUARY 2018

simple, for the Illinois-based company replaced the traditional fiberglass mat internal structure with carbon foam. All AGM batteries differ from other lead acid batteries because they replace the distilled water of traditional models with maintenance-free solid, conductive fiberglass material (the GM [glass mat] part of AGM). By replacing fiberglass with carbon, Firefly has addressed or mitigated problems of older AGM batteries. For starters, one of the drawbacks of AGM batteries is sulfation, or the crystallization of lead sulfate. The lead and lead dioxide (the active materials of lead acid battery plates) react with the sulfuric acid in the electrolyte to form lead sulfate crystals. The crystals steal lead from the battery system, ultimately reducing the battery’s effectiveness and lifespan. Sulfation is common with batteries that are repeatedly discharged and recharged, and active boaters are prime offenders. The carbon foam of the Firefly batteries is more resistant to sulfation, thus keeping

the battery healthier and more efficient for longer. The resistance to sulfation has many profound implications for the carbon foam batteries. The manufacturer is quick to tout a greater depth of discharge, thanks to the material’s sulfation resistance. For most batteries, it is unwise to discharge beyond 50% or so of their capacity for the sake of longevity. The carbon foam design allows for near-complete discharges of rated capacity without performance loss. The increased longevity adds to a superior life cycle and versatility to one’s boat systems. If replacing traditional AGMs with carbon foam ones, it goes to reason that fewer carbon foam batteries will be needed thanks to the increased power draw capabilities. All in all, carbon foam technology is probably going to be featured in more AGM batteries as time goes on, especially as lithium ion continues to work out the kinks. For now, Firefly International Energy seems to be leading the charge. More information, including an abundance of hard data about Firefly Energy’s Microcell™ Carbon Foam batteries, is available at fireflyenergy.com.

Left: You might think that carbon foam batteries are lighter, but Firefly’s Oasis line of AGM batteries are roughly equivalent in weight to their lead-acid counterparts.


THE BIG SWITCH

I

t seems like we’ve been sailors forever. We began sailing in college and shortly after we married (37 years ago!) we bought our first sailboat. Thirty years and 5 sailboats later we were sailing a 48’ semi-custom beauty, but thought we might be ready for a change. A few years earlier, we had tied up alongside a Selene 43 trawler. I admit that when we went to look at trawlers we were afraid sailing friends might see us but it immediately felt right. Selenes are efficient boats that are built with the quality of our sailboat,

with well-found systems and high levels of craftsmanship, boats that we can trust in an open ocean or inland waters. What we have found since going “to the other side” has amazed us. We see a lot more of the Pacific Northwest’s spectacular scenery and wildlife than we ever did before. Having visibility from the flybridge, from the comfort of the pilothouse or salon translates into more whale and bear sightings. It is easier to make long passages and at the end of the day we arrive rested and not tired from being tossed about.

Our friends and family enjoy SaltHeart as much as we do. There is one consistent message we hear from everyone we have aboard: “It’s the trip of a lifetime!” The bottom line is that we have no regrets. We still have sailing friends, but our days of pushing an aluminum stick upwind are over. With the Selene we can cruise in comfort in all seasons. When we looked at other trawlers and powerboats we never found one that offered everything we found in our Selene. SaltHeart is our ship of a lifetime for our trip of a lifetime.

PERFECT LINES Artwork and Words: Ray Troll

Salmon Family Tree My Salmon Family Tree artwork was originally created for Dave Montgomeryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s King of Fish: the Thousand Year Run of Salmon book. I worked with various scientists to draw an evolutionary tree of salmon, depicting the relationships between the different species. The Pacific salmon are drawn at the top of the tree. From left to right: the masu or cherry salmon is a Japanese species, Chinook (king) and coho (silver) are sister species, chum (dog) and pink (humpy) are sister species, and sockeye (red) and the extinct saber tooth salmon (aka giant spike toothed salmon) are closely related species. Steelhead and western trout are also included in the Pacific salmon family. This image is available as a signed poster and t-shirt from trollart.com. Bio: Basing his art on the latest scientific discoveries, award-winning Ray Troll brings street-smart sensibility to the worlds of ichthyology and paleontology. Notably, he was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship (with Dr. Kirk Johnson) for their book project Cruisin' the Eternal Coastline: West Coast Fossils from Baja to Barrow in 2011. He has illustrated and co-authored 11 books, appeared on the Discovery Channel, lectured at Cornell, Harvard, and Yale, and shown work at the Smithsonian. Two fish are named in his honor; a New Zealand species of ratfish called Hydrolagus trolli and a prehistoric genus of Italian herring called Trollichthys. From his studio above the Tongass Narrows in rain-swept Ketchikan, Alaska, Ray Troll draws and paints fishy images that migrate into museums, books, and magazines.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Share the Love! February fishing in the Northwest will have some opportunities in the salt, and a lot more in the lakes and rivers. With Valentine’s Day right in the middle of the month, it’s a good time to think about sharing the love of fishing with your spouse or significant other. Unless, of course, that’s already your favorite thing to do together. Whatever you do and wherever you do it, make sure to bundle up with some of those warm clothes you got for Christmas. Baby, it’s cold outside! Brrrrr! We can also have some beautiful sunny days this time of year. You’re really missing out if you don’t take advantage of the boating and fishing opportunities the Northwest has to offer this month. You’ll have some beautiful, uncrowded days if you watch the weather and pick your days. It’s pretty special being in solitude out there with the fish, birds, sea life, and your sweetheart. Blackmouth fishing is still the big draw in the saltwater this month. This is definitely one of my favorite Chinook fisheries. It’s mostly done trolling with downriggers. However, this is some very technically challenging trolling complete with structure, currents, points, and pinnacles.

It’s a lot of concentration and focused fishing. If done right, it’s hardcore fishing, especially in my backyard–the San Juan Islands. I usually use spoons this time of year. Silver Horde or Gibbs Tackle 3”-4” hardware really seems to produce in our winter Chinook fishery. Tie these to 48” of 25-lb leader behind an 11” flasher and hang on. Try to keep your downrigger cable at 25-45 degrees of blowback angle. If possible, troll with the tide. This will usually produce the most bites. Squidding is another good way to get groceries from the saltwater in February. Puget Sound has a very productive squid fishery right now. By boat or just from one of the open piers, the best squidding is usually done at night. The key is light. Find a place with some light shining on it from boats or buildings and equipment and you might just find the squid. Or, from a boat you can use your own lighting. There’s an art to it, but it’s mostly casting and retrieving multi-hooked jigs through the water. A limit of fresh squid gets guests running for a special and unique feast. It pretty much IS the party anytime the calamari appear. Many large lakes are open to fishing in the Northwest in the winter. Lake Chelan, for example, has a great lake trout fishery this time of year. Whether you trailer a boat over or go with a guide, it’s beautiful up there. You have a chance to catch a real lunker in Chelan! The state record mackinaw, a 35.1-lb behemoth, was caught in February 2013 out of this long lake. There’s some cold-weather opportunities in Eastern Washington and Idaho for Kokanee now, too. These landlocked sockeye salmon are hard fighting, fun to catch, and great to eat. Might be worth the drive to the snowy side! Steelhead also can provide great fishing in February. Whether it’s a catch-and-release trip to the Olympic Peninsula with a shot at shaking hands with a giant ocean-fresh chromer or tangling with some of the big hatchery B-run steelies on Idaho’s Clearwater river, it’s an adventure waiting to happen. There is nothing better than the feel of a rip-snorting steelhead trying to strip all the line off your reel as he heads back to the ocean. This is a good time to hire a guide and enjoy a day with a pro. Cold temps are forgotten in some of the most beautiful rivers in the world as adrenaline takes over. It you’ve never fished for our Continued on Page 98

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

Legislative Session and Copper Ban Flips For the average boater, the nitty gritty of the state legislative session may be more than a little opaque. Not to worry, for by the time you get through this month’s column, you’ll be tuned in and ready to throw your political weight behind the issues that matter for the Pacific Northwest boating community! Notably, there are some substantial changes looming to the impending copper bottom paint ban. Essentially, the ban is no longer a ban, but we’ll get back to that in a minute. The basics: 60 days is the length of the 2018 legislative session in Washington (January 8 to March 8, 2018). Each Washington resident gets three members for their delegation: one senator and two state representatives for each of the 49 districts, each evenly distributed by population. The 49 state senators and 98 state representatives had about 2,000 bills to consider when the legislature convened on January 8. That 2,000 number may sound worrisomely high, but most of the bills never pass stage one. And for the rest, it’s all about delegation. Often, there is an unspoken present mindset to “tell me what I need to know at the right time with the right language in the right setting.” Lobbyists must convey complex syllogisms into three bullet points, regardless of the topic. Each bill has a Cliff Notes version, and the successful ones were shared in detail (what I would consider “pre-selling”) during the dog days of summer. While the rest of the sane world is out boating, bills are won or lost during the meatier conversations at in-district visits that occur when the days are long and the coffees iced. Of the list of marine-related bills on the docket, I am paying the most attention to the bill to adjust the copper bottom paint legislation, which awkwardly began the phase-out on January 1, 2018 for new boats in Washington. When I last reported in detail to you all (King Copper is Dead, March 2016), it looked like the state and boaters were content enough with the ban on copper. “Eyes wide open” was the quote from Scott Anderson of CSR Marine, which described his attitude toward the impending ban. Well, that was then, and this is now. Much has happened. Where to start? First, as boaters read that previous article, one by one they banded together and formed a pretty impressive grassroots effort to put the brakes on the complete phase-out. Instead, the Northwest Marine Trade Association’s (NMTA) board put forward a solution around tackling copper in Puget Sound by looking at leach rates, not the end of the pipe in boatyards, to reduce copper in the nation’s second largest estuary. This decision was not made in a vacuum. Looking farther south to California as a role model, boaters will soon have many of the higher copper-leaching paints off the market. While not a complete ban, the list is shortened to about 80 paints from the current list of 200 bottom paints. Washington boaters seemed happy enough with the list, and away I went with my marching orders.

62 NORTHWEST YACHTING || FEBRUARY 2018

Just as remarkable, Washington’s Department of (Ecology) found the copper alternatives, “as bad as copper, if not worse, for the environment.” Something had to give with the current law, which passed in 2011. So goes politics, for Ecology and the NMTA can disagree on the No Discharge Zone, while on the other hand we can remind each other that we are not single-issue organizations and it’s not unheard of to work toward common goals. In this case, it’s changing the current copper law. This proposed bill does a couple of things. First, it allows boatyards to get their moment in the sun. While Washington has one of the nation’s toughest and eco-conscious boatyard permitting processes, the string of successes we’ve had has me shouting from the rooftops. During the legislative testimony and meetings with a targeted list of legislators, I’m going to be doing some old-fashioned bragging about how much cleaner boatyards are now compared to 2011. Specifically, the media copper concentration coming off at boatyards during storms was 410 parts per billion in 2011. From 2015 to 2017, that number has shrunk to 25 parts per billion. If you are wondering what percentage of the copper burden comes from boatyards, it’s staggeringly small: boatyards contribute .011% of all the copper in Puget Sound. Some say that number is still too big. To that I say, well, I don’t say much, and move onto other conversations. Second, the complete phase-out gets moved to 2021. In the meantime, Ecology will begin to take a deeper dive at the 2006 Cruisers Yachts 420 Express Twin Volvo diesels, AC-Heat, Genset, Nice! $199,000

No one wants to change out one pollutant (in this case copper) for something worse for the environment. After presenting for a recent crowd of enthusiastic boaters gathered at North Seattle Community College, the group encouraged me to make the copper saga a regular topic of my column here. While I can’t promise that, I can tell you that I’m looking forward to getting the best bill possible for the 238,000 registered boat owners in our beautiful state. Stay vigilant this legislative session, boaters! Peter Schrappen is the NMTA’s Government Affairs Director and the Clean Boating Foundation’s Executive Director.

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Dinner for Two, a Perfect Size for a Boat! Large-scale entertaining on a boat is difficult, with the lack of cooking space, scant storage, and all the favorite platters at home. But it is nice to dine on a boat, for it can be beautiful if the weather cooperates, and the boat can be taken out for a late afternoon run to enjoy the sunset. It’s February and the weather has been mild, so why don’t you plan on taking the boat out on Valentine’s Day to treat your loved one to a dinner on the water! Dinner for two is an easy endeavor, and much of it can be organized at home. The easiest entrees to organize are those that are braised. Braised pot roast, braised beef shanks, osso buco, braised pork butt, and more. The braised meat can be cooked in advance, and due to the fat and moisture content of the meat, it holds well and reheats easily. A soup can be made in advance and reheated, a salad can be assembled ahead of time and dressed just before dinner, and a nice antipasto plate can be the starter. Most good caterers do the advance work at the shop, then it is just a matter of warming a few things for dinner. Dinner can be organized earlier in the week, with osso buco made, cheese grated, onions minced, and the dessert ready to bake. For a romantic evening, it is always important to have a lovely setting. Have nice music playing, maybe some John Coltrane or a soft Bossa Nova. Buy some flowers or a pot of primroses to put on the table, and set the table in advance so your sweetie doesn’t need to help with the work. For your guest’s arrival, have the champagne on ice, or chill a nice rose cremant or prosecco wine. With the bubbles, have a little something to nibble on, like some olives, crackers, and a fancy soft cheese. The dinner should be ready and kept warm in the

oven or on the stove, so you can enjoy the company of your guest. The only task should be the opening of the bubbles. When you feel it is time to start dinner, get your guest seated at the table, light the candles (yes, candles), and take a few moments to organize yourself in the kitchen. Serve the first course, (I have included a marinated salad from Sicily that can be made in advance) and set out the plates for the osso buco. Have the risotto simmering on the stove, or reheat it in the oven along with the sautéed greens you made in advance. Sit down with your guest and enjoy the salad. When it comes time to serve the osso buco, it is always nice to have a bottle of red wine open and ready to serve with the entrée course. Before you sit down, be sure to turn the oven up to 400 degrees for the yummy molten chocolate cake for dessert! This restaurant-proven cake was is warm, somewhat liquid, and can be built in advance and popped in the oven for a quick ten minutes. The cake is great served with a dollop of cream or a scoop of ice cream. You will wow your guest! As you finish dinner, have a small gift ready and a plan for a after-dinner drink up on deck to see the stars. With all this effort and organization, your romantic dinner for St. Valentine’s Day will be a hit! Who knows what will happen later? Good luck! Bridget Charters is a longtime sailor and the Chef Director of the Hot Stove Society, a cooking school in downtown Seattle operated by Tom Douglas Restaurants. See more at hotstovesociety.com.

Osso Buco 1 clove garlic Pinch of red pepper flakes 1 filet of anchovies, minced 1 carrot, small dice 2 stalks celery, small dice 1 yellow onion, small dice 1 leek, cleaned and diced 4 Roma tomatoes, peeled and diced - optional 1 bay leave 1 sprig rosemary

1 branch sage 1 /2 lemon 2 cups white wine 2-3 cups chicken stock Olive oil Salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste Italian parsley Veal shanks – 2” cut Flour

Season the shanks and dust with flour. Heat a large sauté pan and add olive oil. Sear the shanks golden on both sides and set aside. In another pan that is deep enough to hold the shanks, sauté the carrots, onions, leeks, and celery. Allow to sweat. Once translucent, increase the heat, and add the chopped herbs, anchovies and garlic, sauté until the herbs crackle. Add the tomatoes, and white wine. Allow the wine to cook down, add the stock and parsley, and adjust the seasoning. Add the shanks to the vegetable mixture and allow to cook for about two to three hours. Meat should be soft and pulling from the bone. Serve with risotto or a soft polenta.

64 NORTHWEST YACHTING || FEBRUARY 2018


Squash Risotto 1 1/2 cups carnaroli rice - 2 handfuls per person (A good variety of rice, otherwise Arborio will do) 2 – 3 tablespoons butter 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 /2 yellow onion – minced fine

1 cup butternut squash – diced small 1 /2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated fine Salt and pepper 3 cup chicken stock (have heating in a sauce pan) 2 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped

Sweat the onion in the butter (can substitute extra virgin olive oil), add the squash, season, and add the rice. Allow to cook for a few minutes until the rice crackles. Deglaze with white wine, allow the wine to cook off, and start adding the hot stock, ladle by ladle. A “veil” of broth will always cover the rice. Cook on medium high, stirring constantly. Add the stock as the rest is absorbed. Cook the rice until al dente (like in pasta). The risotto should be somewhat loose and wet. Pull from the heat, check seasoning, add the cheese and butter, cover, and allow to sit for a few minutes.

Part II: Aspen Swings South Last time we hopped aboard the Aspen C120 Knot Wafflen’, it was in SE Alaska, and the owners David and Sue Ellen Jenkins were just beginning their 10,000-mile tour from Anacortes, Washington to Annapolis, Maryland. Where are they now? I caught up with the adventure yacht south of the border in the beautiful Gulf of California, Mexico. Words and Photos: Norris Comer I stand on the flybridge of Knot Wafflen’, where I look forward to an adventure with both familiar and exotic elements. The boat and I are well acquainted, but we are both on the unfamiliar waters of Bahia La Paz in the Gulf of California. The first time I was aboard was last spring in Anacortes, Washington, during a festive bon voyage affair under an overcast sky. The owners, David and Sue Ellen Jenkins, were launching their 10,000-mile tour to Annapolis, Maryland via Alaska, the West Coast, Baja California, an across Mexico overland trailer journey, the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean, and up the East Coast. Spirits were high, the new boater owners eager students on the cruising life learning curve. The second time aboard Knot Wafflen’ was in SE Alaska where I got to really see what it was made of on the drizzly Tongass Narrows. Not only was it a great adventure in one of the world’s notable cruising grounds, but I was impressed with the C120’s performance in a variety of sea states and weather conditions. Turns out, the boasts of designer and Aspen Power Catamaran co-owner Larry Graf were not idle. You can read more about that leg of the adventure in our

I

August 2017 edition in the feature 10,000 Miles: Aspen Takes on Alaska (available at nwyachting.com).

A PNW Boat in Mexico The boat may be familiar, but the scenery is not. I’ve never been to Mexico, and the warm azure waters, red cliffs dotted with saguaro cactus, and expansive white-sand beaches are the exact opposite of the cold green waters, white-capped mountain backdrop, and pebble beaches of my native Puget Sound. The same goes for Knot Wafflen’, which has spent most of its life in the North Pacific. Now it’s in air-conditioning country, not heater territory. Down here we need to worry about UV degradation, not moisture rot. How will it do? The boat is already pushing 7,000 nautical miles, thanks to the many cruising detours, and on a trajectory to easily surpass 10,000 miles by the time it reaches the finish line on the East Coast. Like my time in Alaska, I’m aboard with Larry and Nick (Aspen salesman) Graf, a father-son duo. Larry’s favorite place is at the helm of the covered flybridge where he can take in the scenery. He usually has a cookie nearby to appease his sweet tooth. I’m chatting with him as we leave Marina CostaBaja behind in La Paz as this journey starts. FEBRUARY 2018 || NORTHWEST YACHTING

“Aspen (Power Catamarans) has become a real family affair!” Larry says of the company. Nick isn’t the only other Graf in the business, with his brother Steven and a few in-laws on board. For the Grafs, a boating family, the passion has become a career. In the cockpit, Nick inflates a giant pink flamingo float-toy that he picked up at the marina store for a handful of pesos. “El Flamingo” would be our unofficial mascot for the trip.

Aspen C120: Trawler Mode I look at Knot Wafflen’s performance stats on the Garmin display. We’re cruising at a conservative 6.5 knots after a detour to El Mogote, a peninsula near La Paz that’s known for visiting whale sharks and open public beaches. We got the tip from a local bartender in La Paz the night prior, but we do not luck out with a whale shark sighting. Our eyes turn to the islands in the Gulf and our living-off-the-hook ambitions. Our speed of 6.5 knots is a typical one for a trawler or tug, some of the boating world’s favorite adventure cruising models. A typical trawler owner should be proud of a fuel efficiency of around two

nautical miles per gallon. Knot Wafflen’ is pulling a remarkable six nautical miles per gallon on this calm day in Mexico, with a mild headwind of about five knots. We’re operating at an easy 1,350 rpm, and some simple math brings us to about 1.5 gallons per hour. “The thing I really like about Aspens is that they can do both the trawler thing, with amazing fuel efficiency, but also perform very efficiently at higher speeds,” comments Larry, hinting at what’s to come. El Mogote fades behind as Isla Espíritu Santo comes into view. This 31-square-mile island is completely protected as part of the Area de Proteccion de Flora y Fauna – Islas del Golfo de California (APFF-IGC) and was declared a part of a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1995. As we approach the southern tip of the island, fiery cliffs crowned with cactus rise to greet us, almost as if the Grand Canyon somehow dove into the Mediterranean Sea. The sun sets and, after a somewhat harrowing photo shoot where I have my camera in one hand and the tiller of the dinghy’s 9.9-hp outboard in the other, we plan our final moves before dark. The

plan was to put down the anchor for the night, but Larry eyes the increasing and shifting wind, from easterly to westerly. It’s forecasted to grow to 15 or more knots overnight, and the charts show less protection from the new westerly wind. He makes the call to jog back to Marina CostaBaja for the night. Once there, we scheme the next few days from the comfort of the slip with a few shots of congratulatory tequila for our first day boating in Mexico. ¡Salud!

¡Aventura! We’re up early and underway the next day, a loose tequila-inspired scheme plotted out. Nick, an avid angler, is quick to drop a few lures, and we give trolling a brief shot. After not catching anything, we pull them in to get moving. The Aspen’s wide cockpit, while not specifically designed for angling, certainly has plenty of space and comes standard with a few rod holders. Perhaps future iterations will include more angler-centric features, like a live bait well or larger icebox for catch storage, but for now, the basics are covered. We ease past Puerto Balandra on the Baja Peninsula for a peak of El Hongo, an abnormal rock formation where a boulder is perched precariously on a narrow pillar of stone. It’s a brief detour to check another item off our Baja bucket list before we steer a course away from the mainland and take on the San Lorenzo Channel. We plan to drop anchor off La Playa Bonanza on Isla Espíritu Santo for lunch and to get in some quality beach time. While in transit, Knot Wafflen’s excellent tracking is on full display. Aspens, like many multihulls, naturally maintain straight courses with minimal management. In our case, Knot Wafflen’s tracking prowess is revealed by accident. “Huh,” Larry says, amused. “I forgot to put it on autopilot. Oh well, I didn’t notice,” he laughs. I, the one distracting him, can attest that he didn’t even touch the wheel for the last two or so nautical miles, despite the 10-knot southwesterly breeze. I don’t know if I’ve ever been on another boat that tracks like that, and, true to its name, the boat is not waffling.


Golfo de California Prime Cruising Territory

Golfo de California (the Gulf of California, also known as the Sea of Cortez) is a world-class cruising destination bordered by the Mexican states of Baja California Sur, Sonora, and Sinaloa. With over 5,000 species of macroinvertebrates, over 30 species of whales and dolphins (including the world’s smallest and most endangered porpoise, the vaquita, and the world’s largest animal, the blue whale), manta rays, Humboldt squid, leatherback sea turtles, coral reefs, and more marine life, the gulf is one of the most biodiverse locations on the planet. Large sections of it are part of an official UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Gulf is considered a true ecological gem. Baja California is the world’s secondlongest peninsula and home to about two million people.

Once we arrive at La Playa Bonanza, we spend a few hours on the hook. The multimile stretch of white beach is completely deserted, and I snorkel the hard coral reef right offshore. The reef is crackling with activity, and curtains of bright tropical fish - from the beaked parrotfish to the schools of butterflyfish-part for my passing. Hours pass by all too quickly and it’s time to hop aboard. We have miles to go still. We continue along the west side of Isla Espíritu Santo, past Punta Lobos (Wolf Point), Lago la Salina (Salt Lake), and Punta el Pailebote (Pilotboat Point). A stretch of sea caves scar up the cliffs, and volcanic layers of basalt cut across the rose-colored sandstone. The effect is a raw, prehistoric one, and I, for one, feel like we had drifted into a geology textbook. We push north past the tip of the island to Los Islotes, effectively a sea mount that overshot the water surface boobies. I’ll admit, more than a few boobie by a few hundred feet.

What exactly is going on here? It’s worth an area called Los Cuevitas, which is rumored to be home to the iconic blue-footed digging into a few of the C120’s features to

find out why it’s performing so efficiently. The design is a single screw, with the one engine sitting in the starboard hull. Therein lies part of the secret to the build’s fuel efficiency: less engine required. Thanks to the efficient power proa multihull design, less engine effort is needed for the comparable performance to other boats. Lower power needs means a smaller, lighter engine to achieve that performance, which in turn reduces the overall weight of the vessel, and then increases the efficiency. There is a meritocratic cycle going on here that starts with the hull shape, reduces the drawbacks of a large cumbersome engine, and ends with top-notch fuel efficiency. Another feature that increases the efficiency are the dual trim tabs that Larry actively manages according to sea state to squeeze the most mileage out of a gallon. Fuel efficiency provides another great ripple effect for a boater’s experience: adventure range with less fuel. The C120 comes with a standard 220-gallon fuel tank, and we can play with my Mexico numbers a bit to see roughly what to expect fuel consumption-wise. If we take the trawlerlike performance numbers (about 6 knots) in ideal conditions from the previous day and compare them to the more demanding Continued on Page 70

sport cruiser performance into a decent headwind and chop of this day, we’ve got a pretty good range of typical data to examine. Knot Wafflen’, outfitted for cruising with four passengers aboard, has demonstrated a fuel consumption range of 6 nautical miles per gallon to 1.2 nautical miles per gallon, meaning a total travel range of around 1,320 nautical miles (conservative cruising in calm waters) to around 260 nautical miles (fast cruising into rough headwind). Not only is this comparable to larger, bulkier, more fuel-guzzling trawlers, but Knot Wafflen’ is using a fraction of the total fuel, saving dollars at the pump and carbon in our atmosphere. I eagerly keep an eye on our stats, curious as to how far we’ll travel and how much fuel we’ll eat up on this trip.

The rest of the day passes as a sort of sun-drenched daydream. I manage a quick dip at Los Islotes. Schools of rays and fish ripple the water around me. Our visit is brief, and (while I don’t see any), manta rays, great hammerhead sharks, and whales are supposed to be common. The day stays blustery as we make headway to Isla San Francisco for exploration and a night on the hook in Bahia San Francisco. Notable

about the Aspen C120 is the comfort of the ride. There is some kind of voodoo going on with the hull, which Larry chalks up to purposeful design elements. “The power proa hull is asymmetrical and the tunnel design is unique,” says Larry. “The inner chine grows quite a bit. If you are going into a head sea and you want to bob, there’s quite a bit of lift there because the inner chine is about three times the size of the outer chine, which allows the boat to lift very well.” There are also some features in the top of the tunnel as the vertical wall rolls into it. “There is a step there that breaks off the water and creates a bubble water zone that helps with the cushioning at different speeds. There’s also a large asymmetrical wave breaker down the center of the tunnel that helps a bit in a tight chop. The wavebreaker also stiffens up the hull and gives us a wonderful place to run wires and cables to the dash.” Additionally, the tunnel height to tunnel width ratio is quite steep at 5:1. While many catamaran designs go wider to maximize interior space, going too wide invites wave slap. While the Aspen’s higher tunnel design is not impervious to that slapping feeling, the performance in the day’s breeze and chop is quite smooth compared to what Continued on Page 72

The El Hongo Saga Repairing Playa Balandra’s Cherished Mushroom Rock The story of El Hongo (The Mushroom) is a strange one. The unique volcanic rock formation of Puerto Balandra has become something of a cultural landmark, a readily identifiable symbol of La Paz. A selfie with El Hongo has become a sort of ritual for many La Paz locals and visitors. However, abuse of El Hongo by climbers and touchers toppled the iconic rock several years ago. The La Paz community promptly glued it back to its original position, and one can find the seam if you look close enough.

The 10,000mile Journey

Top: Knot Wafflen’ cruising past the red cliffs of Isla Espíritu Santo, right at home. Photo taken one handed, with the dinghy’s tiller in the other.

Being the boat nerd that I am, I look at our performance numbers. The conditions today are different yet again, and now we have about 8 to 10 knots of wind at our backs with about one-foot waves. For many boats, especially multihulls, quartering following seas are a nightmare. However, at 17 knots at 2,870 rpm, we’re surfing. We sip fuel at 1.2 nautical miles per gallon for around 14 gallons per hour. We pull into our slip and divvy out clean-up chores. We want to leave Knot Wafflen’ in great shape for Jenkinses, who are planning to hop aboard again sometime in the coming days. As Larry and I prepare to search for propane (quite an endeavor in La Paz) and the others spearhead the deck swabbing, I look at the final numbers. All in all, we boated non-stop for four full days and traveled more than 120 nautical miles. Our total fuel consumption? About 60 gallons, or about a quarter of the tank. The whole trip flashes before my eyes, all made possible by the modest consumption of 60 gallons of diesel. Norris Comer is the managing editor of Northwest Yachting magazine.

Only You

CAN PREVENT MICROFIBER POLLUTION Microplastics, and specifically microfibers, have emerged as one of the hot-button water pollution issues of the 21st century. Although the scale of the problem is daunting, the scientific community and both the private and public sectors are beginning to take action.

By ROGER McAFEE

84 NORTHWEST YACHTING || FEBRUARY 2018

Turns out, the solution to microplastics pollution may come down to everyday folks like us, and boaters can lead the charge. What are microplastics, anyway? Microplastics are small plastic pieces less than 5mm (0.2”) long that are harmful to our oceans and waterways. We have known for some time that plastics are the main

T

type of marine debris in the oceans and Great Lakes of North America. Some very preliminary research is showing similar problems in other ocean and lake systems around the world. Plastics are so widely used because they are tough, don’t deteriorate easily, and are quickly, easily, and cheaply made. The things that make plastics so dangerous in


small enough to enter the microplastic classification. These pieces are small enough to be eaten by fish that mistake them for food, and that’s how many microplastics get into the food chain. Other newly understood sources of microplastics entering the waterways come from everyday items used by millions of people daily in the Western world – makeups, facial scrubs, and even toothpaste. Plastic microbeads are used in the manufacturing of these products. They have been used in personal care products for more than 50 years. Until about five years ago, most consumers were unaware that the use of microplastics was so widespread. On December 28, 2015, former U.S. President Barack Obama signed the MicrobeadFree Waters Act of 2015, which prohibited the use of plastic microbeads in cosmetics and personal care products. Time will tell how the current Administration and Congress handle the issue. The British Parliament passed legislation prohibiting plastic microbeads in personal care products by the end of 2017, and pressure to do the same is being applied to other governments around the world. The war against microbeads used in manufactured products has been fully engaged, and it appears that progress is being made in that battle.

THE NEW THREAT: THE CLOTHES ON OUR BACKS

Left: A lionfish eyes a plastic bag, perhaps wondering whether it is a jellyfish. Plastic pollution is a global phenomena that affects waters both near and far.

the environment is that they are tough, don’t deteriorate easily, and are quickly, easily, and cheaply made. Plastics end up in the ocean in many ways and in many forms. Some are simply thrown in by boaters or those who frequent beaches and shorelines as visible litter. Some wash into oceans and lakes with flooding or tsunamis. Larger pieces

However, another, potentially more insidious, plastic by-product is making its way into waterways around the world, and it’s the result of washing certain types of modern clothing. Many of the clothing items worn, from yoga pants to waterproof jackets and fleeces, are made of polyester threads. Almost all fleeces and other wicking and breathable products are woven of the same type of thread. Chemically, the material is polyene terephthalate, also

are obvious, and as more people, boaters and non-boaters alike, become aware of this type of pollution, thousands of shoreline residents across North America spend a day or two a year on organized waterways and beach cleanups. As the larger pieces break down due to wave action and scrubbing along beaches and river banks, they become

We all know what traditional plastic litter looks like, but what we see on the beach is just a part of the story. Plastic in the ocean environment erodes, not unlike rock, thanks to forces like wave action until the plastic pieces are microscopic. In some ways, the microplastic form is more insidious, as it is invisible to the naked eye and easily injested by marine life.

known as PET. Many of these threads are made of used plastic bottles or worn-out clothing, which are crushed, shredded, melted, and extruded to make the polyester thread used in many fleece, athletic performance, and other products. What the world is now dealing with are the small bits of PET thread that break off a garment every time it’s washed. They are not the chemical pollutants or the byproduct of industrial production. They are what has been termed “structural pollutants." This revelation has led to headlines in the popular press along the lines of, “Your yoga pants (or fleece jackets, breathable clothing, microfiber wiping cloths, etc.) are poisoning our oceans.” The other headline that appears regularly is something like, “If you’re eating seafood, you’re eating plas-

tic.” In the first headline, if we substitute the word “polluting” for “poisoning”, we would be able to say both popular press headlines would be accurate.

MICROFIBER SCIENCE REPORT Researchers around the world have decided to call these bits of polyester thread microfibers. While garments made of this type of fabric are widely worn now, polyester fabrics first burst onto the scene nearly half a century ago. They were the basic material used in “disco” or “leisure” suits, and were considered the height of fashion in the late 1960s and into the 1970s. Now most workout gear, waterproof jacket shells, and fleeces are made of the same basic material. We are seeing a major move among makers of soft furniture – couches

and padded chairs — to use stain-proof fabric made of microfibers. All these products shed plastic thread particles when they are washed. Exercise clothing, because of the nature of its use, is washed almost every time it’s worn. A University of California study has found that 1.7 grams (0.06 oz.) of microfibers are shed every time a synthetic fleece jacket is washed. These particles make their way into the waterways, where they are ingested by fish and other organisms. Research done by the State University of New York examined fish caught in the Great Lakes and found microfibers had woven themselves into their gastro-intestinal tracts. These same microfibers are the second most common type of pollution in Lake Michigan. An Australian study has concluded that microfibers make up 85 percent of humanproduced debris along shorelines around the world. Other research - focusing on both salt and freshwater shorelines - supports the finding of the Australian study. British Columbia research revealed that 25,000 plastic particles and microfibers were contained in one cubic meter of water collected along the B.C. Coast. Washing a single sweater can release up to 10,000 bits of microfiber, according to the research. The Nanaimo campus of Vancouver Island University has been examining B.C. shellfish, and Dr. Sarah Dudas is leading this team that has harvested thousands of


oysters from various locations along the B.C. Coast. She reports finding microfibers in almost every oyster. Dr. Dudas says research has yet to determine how microfibers might affect food safety or food security. She reports excellent cooperation from oyster farmers along the B.C. Coast. “The industry put some money into our study,” she says, “and we leveraged that to obtain additional funds from the government, and shell fish farmers along the coast want to be kept up to date on our research.” Research is being done locally at sewage treatment plants to measure the amount and type of microfibers coming into the sewage plants and to check again after treatment to see what is discharged. We understand the Vancouver Aquarium has done some effective research into this topic, but aquarium policy forbids their staff from discussing their work with the media without prior approval from the public relations department.

THE PRIVATE SECTOR STEPS UP Patagonia Outdoor Clothing and Gear, one of the largest manufacturers of clothing made of synthetic material, has embarked on a program to educate buyers to combat microfibers. The company plans to provide customers with information on the care of any synthetic product, not just its own. Patagonia will advise customers that research shows synthetic jackets washed in top-loading washing machines shed five times more microfibers than those washed in a front loader. It will also make available, at its cost, a Guppy Friend bag into which a user can put synthetic clothing for washing. The bag and clothing is washed normally, but the tight weave of the bag material stops much of the microfibers from going into the washer’s drain. The microfibers can then be taken from the bag and disposed of as ordinary garbage. These bags are now available for $20 at all Patagonia outlets in Europe and North America. Patagonia also recommends the installation of a permanent washing machine filter, Wexco’s Filtrol 160, to help reduce the microfibers going down the drain. This filter was developed years ago to keep lint out of septic fields. The company also notes a device currently under development called Cora Ball that, when thrown into a washer along with the clothes, gathers up microfibers, which can be removed and disposed of in normal garbage.

A number of washing machine manufacturers are working on built-in filter systems that will trap microfibers for easy removal like most dryers trap lint. Researchers are also examining the possibility that additional filtering at sewage treatment plants might be helpful in reducing microfibers in the waterways. Patagonia and other fleece manufacturers are reminding users that it is not necessary to wash any good quality fleece item after a single wearing. For example, they note that if the outer shell of a breathablefleece lined jacket gets muddy, it can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or sponge. Other manufacturers also remind users that many items can be hand rinsed in freshwater and hung to dry naturally. It is clear that various manufacturers of fleece clothing are taking the microfiber issue very seriously. Even retailers who do not manufacture products, such as Vancouver B.C. Mountain Equipment Co-Op, make cash contributions to ongoing research projects. In fact, a major, two-year research project examining microfibers in the waters from Texas to the Florida Keys is currently underway. This particular research uses both professionals and volunteers as part of the project and, therefore, hopes to recover more data than if it was done by paid personnel only.

WHAT CAN YOU DO? Individual boaters can help reduce microfiber pollution by using 100% cot-

ton cleaning cloths on board, rather than microfiber cleaning cloths. They can also dress against the cold by wearing cotton or wool garments rather than fleece clothing. When replacing washing machines, either on their boats or at home, they can opt for front loaders. Staying tuned with the developments in washing machine filters and products like the Cora Ball and Guppy Friend bag is also key, and such measures may need to become regular household practice. In general, most researchers agree that an informed public can, and will, be the first line of defense against further microfiber pollution. There is no doubt that fleece fabrics are excellent clothing items that the public now accepts and will continue to demand. There is also no doubt that fleece manufacturers and retailers have stepped up to the plate to find a way to counterattack the environmental impact of their products. Under such circumstances, many in the marine industry are satisfied that it won’t be long before a solution to the microfiber problem surfaces. Until then, boaters should stay vigilant on the issue. We are facing a big mess, but we can all do our part to restore our plastic-free oceans. Roger McAfee is a Canada-based lifelong boater and writer.

Hero Hydros

How Courageous underdogs and history-making Hydroplanes helped put Postwar Seattle on the map

T

BY PETER MARSH

88 NORTHWEST YACHTING || FEBRUARY 2018

There’s not a week that goes by these days without someone on some kind of boat trying to set a record for speed or distance. They may use human/wind/motor/solar power, or try some novelty event like “largest boat tie-up.” That’s an achievement that the public can easily understand! It was set by 1,651 boats on a lake in Kentucky in 2010, according to the Guinness Book of Records (surely, Seattle could take a shot at it one

day!). But the record that really stands out above all others is for the fastest speed over a “measured mile” course — the unlimited world water speed record — and Seattle has already held that prize. Between 1920 and 1939, the race to win this title turned into a deadly transAtlantic rivalry between the USA and the UK, the speed doubled from 70 mph to 140 mph, and the drivers who survived became national heroes. After World War II,


City in the headlines at a time when Seattle had no professional sports teams nor many claims to fame. The owner of the boat and also the driver for the record run, went on to become the most celebrated sportsman in the Emerald City for several years, and turned Seattle into the hydro-racing capital of the world. But can you name him? Here’s a clue: in 1956, a year after he died—from a heart attack, not a boat crash—the city of Seattle named a park on Lake Washington after him. The Stan S. Sayres Memorial Park is a mile south of the Interstate 90 Bridge and, fittingly, became the site of the pits for the annual Seafair Hydroplane Races. Sayres ran a Chrysler dealership and began his racing career in fast cars. He became fascinated by the homemade raceboats he saw racing around the Northwest in the 1930s. After the war, thousands of men returned to Washington and found jobs in the aero- and boat-building industries. Many of them had experienced the thrill of piloting high-speed warplanes and rescue boats in the war and were soon looking for ways to experience that kind of excitement in peacetime motor sports. They began to experiment with a new style of speedboat—the three-point hydroplane—and tested it in races run by the Seattle Outboard Association on Green Lake, or in the demanding annual 13-mile Sammamish Slough Race.

Seattle’s first Thunderboat

powerboat racing returned to the Detroit area, the traditional center of the sport, but was swiftly overtaken by an upstart team from Seattle. Seventy years ago they began designing the boat that just two years later would stun the sport by breaking the world record with a two-way run of 160 mph on Lake Washington. Their boat was called Slo-mo-shun IV, a name that continues to resonate in the Pacific Northwest because it put the Emerald

But Sayres was planning for a boat far bigger and faster than the Northwest had ever seen. By 1948, he had recruited Boeing engineer Ted Jones as his designer and Anchor Jensen as the builder of his new boat. Seventy years ago, they began their assault on the high-stakes American powerboat circuit. That summer, they attended the Amerian Power Boat Associatin (APBA) Gold Cup in Detroit to find out what the country’s leading teams were doing. They learned that the traditional stepped-hull boats were being replaced with the first big hydroplanes. This gave Jones the confidence to draw a hydro that could maximize the potential of the three-point concept by supporting the boat on just the aft end of the sponsons, with the partially submerged propeller providing the third point. These are still the essential features of the hydros today, even though they are powered by 3,000-horsepower gas turbine engines that

weigh around 800 lbs., about half as much as a piston engine. Construction began at the Jensen Motor Boat Company in Portage Bay in the fall of 1948. The 28’ x 11’ hull was built of bestquality aircraft spruce and 1/2” plywood specially laid up to their specifications using mahogany veneers by the Elliott Bay Mill Company. The joints in the frames are all sandwiched with aluminum gussets and plates—as I found out when I looked inside the sponsons a few years ago. The bottom was protected by an oak keel. All this was to ensure the hull was tough enough to withstand the pounding as it skimmed over the water at speeds in excess of 100 mph. For power, they bought a surplus World War II Allison V-12 aero-engine that originally put out a maximum of 1200 hp at 3,000 rpm. With a 1:3 custom-built gearbox by Western Gear Works, the motor could spin the 13.5" x 25" two-bladed prop at a stunning 12,000 rpm. The complete boat weighed well under 5,000 lbs. and proved to be very stiff and durable—it was still winning races five years later. These super-charged aero engines were the key to hydro development for the next 40 years, and thousands of them

were auctioned off by the government. With the power to push a fighter plane at over 350 mph, the sky was the limit for powerboat racing in the early 1950s.

Lake Washington's World Record

On June 26, 1950, the Slo-Mo-Shun IV took the local media and the speed-boating world by surprise when it ran through the gates at a one-mile course on Lake Washington in a new record speed of 160 mph. This required a return run within an hour to comply with rules of the venerable Union Internationale Motonautique, the international governing body of powerboat racing based in the Mediterranean principality of Monaco. The average of the two runs comfortably beat the old time of 141 mph set by Sir Malcolm Campbell in the golden age of record breaking between the two world wars. Today, this feat looks so breathtaking, I certainly thought it was the crowning moment of the season, but I was mistaken!

The morning's events were barely appreciated in Seattle, and the world record was really just a warm-up for the team’s real goal: beating the Eastern establishment in the Gold Cup, the biggest event on the power boat racing circuit, to be held in Detroit in July. However, the Detroit News was clearly aware of the threat posed by Sayres and his team, because the fastest anyone had gone in North America at that time was 127 mph. The paper warned its readers, "Boat Going 160 mph Just A Blur-Detroit is Next Stop." A public subscription drive in the Seattle area enabled Sayres to take a full crew back east with the boat on a flatbed truck. When the Slo-Mo-Shun IV arrived in mid-July, Sayres told the Detroit newspaper reporters, "It's really a backyard-built boat, a rule-ofthumb job that's been perfected by what you might call seat-of-the-pants experiences in test runs. We want to find out if our boat is as good on the racecourse as it's proved on the straightaway.”

The novelty of this backwoods effort quickly wore off during the first heat of the 1950 Gold Cup as driver Jones and crewman Mike Welsch guided Slo-MoShun IV through a 30-mile display of unbelievable speed. The Seattle boat won at a record average of 80 mph and lapped every boat in the field. After three rounds, they had annihilated the competition and won the right to hold the next Gold Cup on Lake Washington. To prove this was no fluke, they also went on to claim first place in the Harmsworth International Trophy race, and became the first craft ever to be timed at 100 mph in a competition around a closed course. When the victorious team returned home, they learned that the first Seafair, a centennial celebration for “the boating capital of the world,” had been a great success with parades, athletic events with small boat races on Green Lake, and also the site of the Aqua Follies in the new 5,500 seat Aqua Theater, built in a mere 75 days. The event was such

Fatal Attraction

Pushing the Speed envelope on Water a triumph that it was held the following year and is still an annual event. The second Seafair was an even bigger hit with the first Unlimited powerboat race west of Detroit. Seattle caught “hydro mania” and never looked back. Sayres had a second boat, Slo-Mo-Shun V, sharing the boathouse of his estate, conveniently sited on Hunts Point on the east shore of Lake Washington. The new boat was slightly faster on the turns of the race course and had a 1500-hp Rolls Royce Merlin engine, which propelled it to victory in the Gold Cup. Hundreds of thousands of spectators watched that race, which was broadcast live on King 5 TV. This gave a huge boost to Seafair, long before the Mariners, Seahawks, or Sonics came to town. Stanley Sayres, the “Speedboat King,” was just what the sport’s promotion needed. He found himself making speeches, displaying Slo-Mo-Shun IV at fundraising rallies, and most satisfyingly receiving the backing of a newspaper campaign to keep the Slo-Mo-Shun IV at the top of the U.S. speedboat class at a cost of more than $30,000 a year. Through the next winter, the Slo-Mo-Shun IV was tuned to perfection, until Sayres was ready to run the measured mile again. He succeeded brilliantly and drove Slo-Mo-Shun IV to 185 mph on the first leg; the return was slower, but his average was still 178.5 mph. He had now raised Englishman Malcolm Campbell’s mark by 37 mph—an impressive increase of over 25 percent. The boat’s last big victory was a third Gold Cup win at the 1954 Seafair. In 1956, Seattle’s favorite boat crashed at 150 mph during a trial run on the Detroit River, inflicting serious injuries to driver Joe Taggart, who would never race again. The battered hulk of Slo-Mo-Shun IV was returned to its homeport, and was eventually re-built

by Anchor Jensen. In 1959, it was donated to the Museum Of History and Industry (MOHAI), now on the south end of Lake Union. Footage of the boat can also be seen and heard on YouTube.

The Home Stretch

During the 1990s, both Slo-Mo-Shun IV and Slo-Mo-Shun V were restored to running condition at the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum, headed by Dr. Ken Muscatel. In June 1999, Slo-Mo-Shun IV re-enacted her 1950 record run at Sand Point in tribute to the 50th year of Seafair with Dr. Muscatel driving. Designer Jones and builder Jensen were on-hand to witness the final chapter of the history-making saga. Local enthusiasts of the sport are in luck, for the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Kent is the nation's only public museum dedicated solely to powerboat racing. The museum is dedicated to preserving and exhibiting important artifacts from the sport and has restored over 20 hydros. It is open Tuesday through Saturday (more info on their website at thunderboats.ning.com). In their archive, I learned that the record for a piston-powered, propeller-driven boat was increased to 200 mph in the USA in 1962 and still stands. Since 2000, the turbine-powered unlimited hydros have pushed the open propeller-driven record to 220 mph. Peter Marsh grew up in Greenwich, UK, started dinghy sailing in 1963, and witnessed the start of the Singlehanded Trans-Atlantic Race in 1964. He was involved in early trimaran development, then joined Major H.W. Tilman for a voyage to the Arctic in 1971. He came to the United States in 1972 and has only built one more multihull, a small open trimaran that he cruised to Alaska twice in the 1980s, plus a 1986 voyage on the Great Lakes. He described those voyages in his first stories for Northwest Yachting magazine. He has lived in Astoria since 2002. Read many of his stories at www.sea-to-summit.net

Left: Stanley Sayres in the early 1950s. Right: Slo-mo-shun V returned to Lake Washington in all her glory for SeaFair 1999.

In 1955, the unlimited record was raised far beyond the reach of the propeller boats, thanks to the introduction of surplus fighter jet engines providing pure thrust. The first mark, set by Sir Malcolm Campbell’s son Donald, was 202 mph in a boat with a jet loaned from the Royal Air Force for a project of “national importance.” It was also the first boat fitted with an enclosed cockpit for improved airflow and safety. In seven successive attempts in Bluebird K7 over the next decade, the younger Campbell raised the water speed record from 202.32 mph to 276.33 mph, culminating in 1964 when he broke both water and land speed records. He finally succeeded in equaling his father’s achievements, becoming a popular hero in post-war Britain as he pursued his “magnificent obsession.” But in 1967 on a cold January morning in England’s scenic Lake District, he let his reputation overcome his caution and pushed the aging Bluebird K7 over 300 mph until it pitch-poled backwards. It exploded when it hit the water, killing him instantly. That ensured his immortality as a British icon and one of the last of the old-school, upper-class overachievers. But less than six months after his death, the record was brought back to the USA by Lee Taylor with a speed of 285 mph. He held it for a decade, then lost it to the self-taught Australian Lee Taylor designer/builder/driver Ken Warby’s phenomenal 317.5 mph. Taylor too was killed in 1980 going about 270 mph in his terrifyingly missile-shaped 40’ rocket boat. (“At least he died doing something he loved,” his wife said in a TV interview). Craig Arfons, from a landspeed record-breaking family, was the second American to die chasing Warby’s mark when his boat somersaulted at about 300 mph in 1989. They are three of the dozen or more men who have died in attempts to raise the world water speed record. Mercifully, the Slo-Mo-Shun’s never killed any of their drivers, but chasing the world record looks like the deadliest game this side of Russian Roulette! This appalling death rate makes 78-year-old Ken Warby the sole member of the world’s most exclusive club: a living water-speed record breaker. Believe it or not, his 48-year-old son hopes to break his dad’s record in the coming year. We’ll keep you posted!

RACING SHEET

Winter Magic for Duwamish Head Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson The second race of the South Sound Sailing Series, the main sailboat racing event of February in Puget Sound, was hosted by the Three Tree Point Yacht Club out of Des Moines Marina. The day kicked off with hot coffee and cold rain on the docks as crews arrived and boats played a game of jenga to get in and out of the tight slips. The course took fleets northward to the Duwamish Head mark, just off Alki beach; then westward to Blakely Rock, off Bainbridge Island, and

finally back to finish near the pier in Des Moines. With over 60 boats taking part, the often-frigid winter race series is outpacing many summer events, even during a time of the year when many boats sit idle at their slips. Leaving the marina, the wind defied the forecast, gusting into the high teens as the starts got rolling around 09:30 with signal flags flying from the end of the marina pier. The always comfortable cruising class got underway as the rest of the racing fleet hoisted

sails and finalized positions for the day. The racing fleet starts got underway shortly after, with the small boats heading off first and the big boats with the fancy sails starting at the back. Jockeying around at the start was made even more exciting by a short line set tight into the pier, and wind conditions making the pin end of the line far more favorable. Several boats made big gains off the line by staying away from the pile-up of boats and sneaking away with clear air after the start.

Shifting wind and big puffs made for exciting reaching conditions off the very sporty start line. More than a few boats got caught off-guard by a blast of wind and found themselves rounding up out of control. As the fleet worked its way north past Fauntleroy, the clouds began to break, and the wind settled down into a nice eight- to ten-knot breeze, aka ideal winter sailing conditions. Reaching the lighthouse at Alki is the easy part of this race, but getting into Elliott Bay to round


Results: Duwamish Head/South Sound Series #2 the Duwamish Head pilings is a different beast all together. A game of “how tight do you cut the corner” plagued the fleet, with several boats gybing for the mark too soon, only to run out of wind in the lee of West Seattle. Those who were far enough from the mark still struggled to get around and back out into the steady wind away from shore. The westward reach across to Blakely Rocks was made more complicated by the pile-up of boats rounding the mark, making clean air and good boat speed critical to stay with the pack. Rounding the rocks was nothing out of the ordinary, yet always nail biting with eyes locked on the depth sounder as tacticians endlessly asked if crews were clear of the rocks off the west tip. As the upwind sailing began, a large pod of orcas worked through the fleet as the bulk of boats passed the southern tip of Bainbridge Island. Several large males and a handful of mother and calf pairs were an amazing thing to see in the shadow of the Seattle skyline. Fortunately, the whales brought good fortune and the wind held out, although shifted around to the south, and brought the fleet to the finish line before dying off for the evening. Up next for the Northwest racing fleet is the Tolvia Shoals Race, the third installment of the South Sound Series, held even farther south and hosted by the Olympia Yacht Club. The Toliva Shoals Race is the longest of the four-race series and one of the only times each year that Seattle-based boats venture south of Tacoma to sail. With past races offering everything from sunshine and no wind to howling snowstorms, it is anyone’s guess what’s in store this year. Bring it, I say!

Listed are select results from the 2017 Winter Vashon Races held Dec. 2, 2017. Boat

P RTS OF CALL

Hayden Island, OR By Norris Comer Hayden Island is an understated, boat-friendly intersection for some of the Pacific Northwest’s grandest crossroads. Perched a stone’s throw south and upstream of the Columbia River and Willamette River confluence, Hayden Island joins neighboring Sauvie Island as one of Oregon’s distinctive river islands with its own unique culture and history. Not only is it located near the river confluence, but it also sits on the I-5 corridor, an access route that makes Hayden Island feel less like an island and more like an extension of the mainland. While technically part of Portland, Oregon, it really feels like its own half-town, sitting equidistant between “real” Portland and Vancouver, Washington. Throw in more details, like the undeveloped western half, the marinas around every corner, and the floating home communities, and there really isn’t anywhere else quite like it. What other island sits on the passages between the Cascade Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Canada and Mexico (via I-5), the Willamette and Columbia rivers, and Oregon and Washington border? The island’s history of many names reflects the place’s crossroads past. In 1792, Lieutenant William Robert Broughton, commander of the Royal Navy survey brig HMS Chatham, called it Menzies after a botanist aboard. Lewis and Clark named it Canoe Island in 1805; the Hudson Bay Company called it Vancouver Island; a Colonel named it after himself (Shaw); and ultimately local settler Gay Hayden made his home there in 1851, winning the naming tug of war once and for all. Hayden Island is a natural stop for both resupply and recreation. The water access and surplus of moorage options have made Hayden Island a proper marine hub. Many of the area’s yacht brokers, chandleries, craftspeople, etc., are eager to offer their services. Its strategic position is one of Hayden Island’s greatest assets, and the island has plenty of river fun to offer in its own right.

H

94 NORTHWEST YACHTING || FEBRUARY 2018

1. River Fun For the visiting boater, two of the main draws to Hayden Island are the mighty Columbia and Willamette Rivers that join near Hayden Island’s western/northern tip. Whether one is cruising up or down stream, these epic waterways can take the boater toward Mt. Hood views or to the Pacific Ocean. Sailors can enjoy a stiff breeze when it comes from the Columbia Gorge to the east, while those power boaters can enjoy a laidback river float with friends, especially in the hot summer months.

2. Tax Free Comfort One of Hayden Island’s major fixtures is the Janzten Beach Center, essentially a classically American collection of gigantic corporate chains (West Marine, Staples, The Home Depot, Target, Toys R Us, etc.) set on an expansive parking lot. The mall may seem out of place to the visitor, but there is a reason for its location on Hayden Island: taxes. Oregon has no state sales tax, while Washington does. Hayden Island, situated on the border of Washington and on the I-5 corridor, is a perfect location for Washington residents in nearby Vancouver to do their shopping. Essentially a thrifty shopper’s paradise, it is a good place for boaters to stock up on just about anything they need on their way up or down the rivers.

3. Westward Green While the eastern half of Hayden Island, with its marinas, businesses, and communities, is meant to draw people, the western half of Hayden Island is the exact opposite. The north-south railroad tracks cut a stark border for West Hayden Island, which is undeveloped with a future in flux. The roughly 826 acres is hailed by the Audubon Society of Portland as “one of Portland’s most important natural areas,” with bottomland hardwood forest, wetlands, meadows, floodplains, and shallow water habitat right on the iconic confluence. The Port of Portland backed off from a 2014 proposal to annex West Hayden Island for development, and many locals and environmental groups are seeking the area’s official protection. In the meantime, West Hayden Island is fenced off to the public, but hopefully that will change soon.


4. Expo!

Columbia River

N

Just across the I-5 bridge to the south is the Portland Expo Center, one of the city’s largest and most active venue spaces. There is always something going on at the Expo, from the boater-centric Portland Boat Show (January every year) and Pacific Northwest Sportsman Show (February 7 to 11 this year), to events like the 62nd Annual Portland Roadster Show (March 16 to 18) and a Tequila and Taco Festival (March 24). It’s a happening place, and a long walk (one or two miles each way), short bike ride, or easy taxi/ridesharing service from the island’s marinas. Notably, the bridge has protected pedestrian walkways. Find out more about what’s going on at the Portland Expo Center at expocenter.org/events.

Gastronomy If you’re fresh off the water, hungry, and need to feed the family, there’s a plethora of agreeable restaurant chains in the nearby Jantzen Beach Center; think Panera Bread, Denny’s, BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse, and the like. However, if you really want to get a feel of the place, there are a handful of irreplaceable on-the-river local restaurants smattered along the east side of the island. Places like the Island Café, Hidden Bay Café, and Menjiro are the real-deal boater go-tos. Island Café and Hidden Bay Café are both delightful, vaguely Tiki mom-andpop establishments that serve up a good burger and tasty novel cocktails. The Hidden Bay Café kitchen staff spontaneously made a batch of mouthwatering banana pudding from scratch when I was there last and were basically giving it away. Local sailors dug in while comparing thoughts on a recent race. Menjiro is an adorable waterfront restaurant that serves up fantastic Japanese food. I had the Salmon JapaBowl, which was healthy, tasty, satisfying, and very affordable ($9.50).

“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail." —Benjamin Franklin

G David Farber David Farber is the store manager of Seattle’s Fisheries Supply Company and has been working there for the last 14 years. He grew up in the Midwest, canoeing on lakes and enjoying the water aboard rented pontoon boats until his true boater awoke in college. Farber joined the Hoofer Sailing Club (the second largest college sailing club in the country) between his freshman and sophomore year at the University of Wisconsin and was hooked. He made his way out to the sailboat racing community of the Pacific Northwest in the late ‘90s and has been a boating gear junky in the industry ever since.

earing up can be a decisive activity for boaters. The sheer variety and volume of available products in a large chandlery can induce panic in some, while uncensored boat nerd joy consumes others. Additionally, the increasingly techy scene adds a new layer of complexity and capability to boat stuff that many love while others avoid. With the cruising days of spring just around the corner, we sat down with David Farber, store manager of Fisheries Supply, to talk about everything gear, from safety equipment to electronic gizmos, defining 2018 Pacific Northwest boating. Q: It’s boat show season, and there’s probably going to be plenty of new boat owners on the scene with all kinds of experience levels. What would you say to the new boat owner who needs to gear up? Whether it’s a power or a sail boat, the first thing to do is go over the U.S. Coast Guard checklist of what’s required. A lot of people who buy a boat are surprised by how much is on the list and how little their new boat came with. Some brokers are really good about going through and helping customers with that. Often, production-style boats are pretty barebones, but specialized Coast Guard compliance kits are often for sale. As far as safety gear, we’re talking about your fire extinguishers, pyrotechnics, safety lights, etc.

Make sure the gear has official U.S. Coast Guard approval and that the life jacket situation is under control. You need to have the right number of life jackets aboard for the number of people on your boat. Most marine stores will only carry U.S. Coast Guard-approved products, but of course there are exceptions to look out for. Around here, we get a lot of Canadian boaters in American waters and vice versa, so those Canadian regulations need to be considered as well. Q: What are the differences in gear requirements between the USA and Canada? As far as number of items, more are required in Canada, but the different item approvals can be a bit confusing. A product may be made with a particular market in mind, so it will have one approval but not the other, for example. We [Americans] do luck out on overall expenditures. For example, in the States, a typical recreational boat just needs three visual signals, flares or lights, that can be seen day or night. Canada requires 12 visual devices. Some of them can be daytime only, like smokes. Vessels over a certain length also have to carry a fire axe and bucket. You do need to comply with Canadian regulations if you’re staying in their waters for a certain extended period of time. If you’re below that number of days, you can use the rules of the country of which the boat is flagged. Q: As long as we’re on the topic of safety, can you go over the different life jacket styles? In your experience, what are the most popular and why? The U.S. Coast Guard has their designations for life jackets (I, II, III, IV, and V), but that doesn’t

matter too much for the boater. A U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jacket is a U.S. Coast Guardapproved life jacket and counts regardless of the type it is. Those types matter more when there are paid passengers and paid crew aboard, for then the regulations are little different. Type I is the sort of vintage horseshoe that goes over your head, and it keeps the wearer’s face above the water regardless of the wearer’s consciousness. They are often associated with what we put on kids in a canoe or kayak. When we think about keeping people safe on a boat, I think it’s important to keep comfort of use in mind. Some of them will turn people upright, while others are just made to be buoyant and will not turn a facedown wearer upright on its own. Just something to keep in mind. For those who tend to be kayaking, canoe, dinghy sailing, the traditional Type III’s are common. Type IIIs are the ones that are used for waterskiing or wakeboarding. They tend to be more comfortable, but won’t naturally turn the wearer upright. However, a lifejacket worn is infinitely superior to no life jacket at all. And then you have your inflatables [Type III or Type V] that range in style and pricing. You can pick up inflatables for around $100 that automatically inflate when they come in contact with water. I almost always recommend automatic inflating life jackets unless the wearer is doing an activity like flyfishing or paddleboarding, where they are in the water a lot and have more opportunity to manually pull the inflate tab in case of


an emergency. When it comes to serious open-water angling, sailing, being offshore, etc. and you’ve accidentally fallen overboard, something has gone very wrong. My feeling is that you want it to go off automatically in that kind of situation. If somebody is doing something that’s active or close to the water, I prefer the traditional foam lifejacket (Type I, II, or III). They can provide some comfort when seated or leaning back against a seat, and it’s nicer to get wet, get dry, get wet again, and not have to worry about carrying re-arm kits. For cruising around on a sailboat or fishing on a powerboat, I’d say the inflatable will be the most comfortable for people. Q: What would you say are the top things boaters tend to forget? You want to check out things that will make your day nicer. If the boat has a head, have toilet paper. If it’s colder, bring extra layers. We’re in the Northwest, and the waters of Puget Sound are always around 50 degrees. Even on a warm 80-degree day, if you get some decent wind over the water it may get chilly. There are a lot of nice added pieces of safety gear these days that are just good ideas. People with smaller boaters don’t always think about the need for a VHF radio as much, but they should. The do-everything smart device is nice for a lot of things, but it has its drawbacks as well. Smartphones aren’t built for being on the water, they are susceptible to moisture, they don’t float without specialty cases, and you can get out of cell phone range quite easily with the terrain that we have here. Also, you don’t know the phone number of the stranger’s boat next to you in an emergency! For all these reasons and more, I always recommend that boaters have a VHF radio aboard regardless of vessel size. The scenarios are endless where a VHF makes the differences; you can be a small sailboat with a down mast and hailing a nearby powerboat for help saves the day, or you’re on your powerboat and the engine goes out – something that can happen when something as simple as a plastic bag gets sucked into it – and that radio links you to help. Q: There is a giant variety of boatingrelated attire, some of it very niche or

specialized. How do non-fashionista boaters proceed? Boat clothing can be very diverse, but there is some crossover between different boating and land-based activities. Here in the Pacific Northwest, people tend to be familiar with what it takes to be in the outdoor environment. Skiing, snowboarding, hiking, backpacking, the same rules apply. You want to dress in layers for what environment you’re in. Cotton breathes great in warm environments, but can actually be dangerous in cold, wet environments. Around here, generally, it’s better to wear synthetic or wool thermal layers close to the skin. Jeans can get cold and wet, so fleece, rain pants, and spray tops are popular. You can definitely use your outdoor or mountain gear for boating too! A lot of folks don’t like to do that because exposure to saltwater will start to aggressively break down the fabrics unless properly maintained. Q: What about gear maintenance? Just about every little thing has associated maintenance that can increase its lifespan, no? As with parts of a boat, maintaining helps. With fabrics, there’s protectants like 303 (303 Fabric Guard). Coating your fenders with a UV protectant makes them last longer. You can really get a lot of extra life. With clothing, people sometimes think you shouldn’t wash high-tech fabrics, but you should. Wash them with appropriate detergent.

Fisheries Supply Company Fisheries Supply Company has been an iconic Seattle marine supply store since it opened in 1928. Originally located at Pier 55 on Elliott Bay, Fisheries served the area’s commercial fishermen and canneries. Flash forward 90 years, and today Fisheries is located near Gasworks Park and Lake Union. The company sells just about anything a boater would need in both recreational and commercial spheres. If you can’t drop in personally, their website has their full inventory as well.

Even helm seats are increasingly diverse, complex, and capable. Maybe they will be integrated with our phones in the near future?

Check your batteries, that’s something they tend to forget to do. Boats don’t get used as often as cars, while cars are regularly started and charging the batteries. If you have a traditional lead acid battery, you want to pop those open to make sure there’s water inside. Q: Smart devices seem to be taking a more prominent role aboard. Do you have any thoughts about boat gear trends of 2018? There have been some great innovations with regards to safety. For example, people are finding

that it can be easy to accidentally let your pyrotechnic flares expire. Now, both Weems & Plath and Orion (common pyrotechnics manufacturers) are coming out with electronic LED signaling devices. Lights and flags may replace some pyrotechnics. Of course, if you’re going to a remote place with terrain visibility issues, having pyrotechnics is good. But if you’re in Lake Washington or Shilshole Bay, switching out the Continued on Page 103

special steelhead, you must do it at least once in your life. It’s a true Northwest experience The first stop of 2018 on the Northwest Marine Trade Association’s Northwest Salmon Derby Series was the Resurrection Salmon Derby, held January 6 and 7. Jason Squibb took home the $10,000 top prize with an 18.28-lb. hatchery Chinook. Entry into these derbies qualifies for a chance at the Derby Series Grand Prize fishing boat! Tournaments are a really good way to connect with other

anglers and have fun fishing. You never know … you just might win something too. The Roche Harbor Salmon Classic also took place in January, but results were not in as of this writing. The Friday Harbor Salmon Classic takes place February 9 and 10. We’ll be out there competing for the big $15,000 top prize! Until next month, stay warm, stay dry, stay tuned, and stay involved! Let’s get out there, share the love, and go get some!

Kevin’s Pick: Gibbs-Delta of British Columbia make a great assortment of gear for the Northwest fisherman. For February salmon, I use the Skinny G spoons in “Bon Chovy” or “No Bananas” colors behind one of their Highliner or Oki 11” flashers. They’ve got the UV and glow that attract big Chinook down deep. Founded in 1908, Gibbs is Canada’s largest tackle manufacturer. “They have everything you need to catch fish above or below the border!” Check out their full line up at gibbsdelta.com. Top: Local fisher Todd Kelly took this awesome action shot of the Gibbs’ Skinny G in the “Bon Chovy” color! Bottom: Winter steelhead storm the Northwest’s rivers in February, and Gibbs’ tackle spoons are there to greet them. Another great Todd Kelly pic.

Pets on Boats

This German Shepherd, Tanks Jacobs-Hedin, is best pals with Jody Hedin and Karin Jacobs of Portland, Oregon, and loves to boat with his people “anywhere, anytime.” A true boat dog, he even waits patiently inside the dinghy at the dock for his people to catch up and get going. The idea behind Pets on Boats is simple: Take a cute or funny photo of your pet aboard your favorite boat, scribble down a funny photo caption, and send it to us with a bio of the pet at editorial@nwyachting.com. We collect images with captions, and our staff selects the best submission. Each monthly winners will have the honor of seeing their pet photo and caption run in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and will also receive a Northwest Yachting care package.

NOMAR BUMPERS ®

Visit us at:

Booth E203

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. For more information, visit our website, or call for a FREE price quote.

ASK THE EXPERTS

BOAT

Continued from Page 97

pyrotechnics for LED light visuals can be a good thing because you don’t need to worry about expiration or disposing of hazardous materials. Just make sure you have spare batteries. In addition, there are a lot of nice signaling devices for when people fall overboard. There are a few MOB (Man Overboard) devices, one of which can be put into a wristband or neck lanyard. When that device strays more than 30 or so feet from the Bluetooth base, it will sound an alarm. You can even wire it so that the alarm cuts off a gas engine. It’s easy to imagine a scenario where this kind of setup could save a life, like if someone goes over while the other crewmate is below deck. Weems & Plath has come out with a large key fob that sends out an alarm to a cellular device when somebody goes over. Another trend is that electronics are starting to do more.

just about every system on your boat. We haven’t brought any companies like this on board yet at Fisheries, but we’re looking at a few different systems that you can wire up that either broadcast sensor information via cellular chip or Wi-Fi at a marina, and you can monitor all the systems on your boat from home. For example, if power’s out at the marina during a big storm, you can check on your bilge pump activity and battery power levels. I helped a gentleman a few years ago whose batteries were completely killed because his kids had gone out, left every system on, and didn’t recharge the boat. A monitoring system like I mentioned might’ve saved those batteries. Chargers are becoming both more sophisticated and easier to use at the same time. The tradition has been to plug into shore power or alternator engine, but

Now is a great time of year to think about doing those boat projects versus waiting until the big rush right before the spring and summer seasons. There are limitations to the handheld devices, partially because not a lot of effort is going into standalone handheld devices right now. For most companies, the focus is going into mobile smart devices that pair with an onboard device. For example, to get a proper GPS signal on your phone, you can pair it with an onboard device like the Garmin Glow, that feeds the info to your phone. It has the same 10-Hertz GPS receiver that their $10,000 systems have but for $99. There are other companies doing that kind of thing as well, that’s just one example. Wireless technology onboard is taking off as well. If you really want to, you can monitor

people who want to be conservative on fuel consumption try to run their generators a bit less. There’s a cultural aspect to the Pacific Northwest where boaters don’t want to disturb their neighbors with a loud genset first thing in the morning when you wake up, which is nice. There are newer technologies in the electrical field that are growing. We’re carrying the EFOY (a division of global energy company SFC) fuel cells and they’re nice. You do have to keep in mind what they are meant to do. They won’t be dishing out a ton of power to charge all the batteries, run the water maker, watch TV, and run a microwave all at the same time. They are

just meant to maintain your batteries. EFOY fuel cells replace solar in a lot of applications. I don’t know if I’d recommend it for the wild blue, but it runs on methanol and produces distilled water, which can be used for the batteries, and a little CO2. Q: Our phones these days can do so much, and it’s cool, but are there some cons to that? I think so. I equate it to putting all your eggs in one basket. When it comes to navigation, for example, I think it should be a secondary tool instead of primary. A lot of people are relying on the apps, and many of those apps are wonderful and comparable to a traditional chartplotter device. However, you are relying on the hardware provided by phone companies that is typically fragile, the GPS receivers aren’t nearly as good, the screens aren’t typically sunlight readable, and while some of the phones are getting better with water and weatherproofing, they are still not on the level of a Garmin or Raymarine chartplotter that are built to be exposed and rained on 24/7. Also, some folks are relying on website information as primary navigation, like marinetraffic.com. Those websites are amazing, but people forget that the information on there is delayed. The information is travelling through relay stations, through servers, across the web, etc. You must remember where that information is coming from. Q: What are your thoughts about the increasing use of AIS (automatic identification system) in the recreational sphere?

I think a growing number of people should have AIS on their boats. We sell AIS MOB devices that, if your boat has AIS aboard, it would put the distress signal on the chartplotter. If you look at the U.S., it’s certainly growing, but if you look at Europe, the number of users has gone up exponentially. There’s a lot of great safety considerations around here that AIS is good for, like the commercial marine traffic. The more AIS users, the more everyone is going to be aware of whose around them. AIS also allows for direct calling, similar to VHF. If a boat has AIS and you have an AIS receiver, you can identify them and directly call them. It’s like doing a phone call almost. That’s definitely nice, and I think AIS is a great safety tool with an easier learning curve than radar. Of course, radar shows boats that don’t have an AIS device. Q: Any words of advice to boaters planning to make the most out of boat show season? Boat shows are a great time to look at these products. Fisheries Supply is going to have a lot of them on display at our booth at the Seattle Boat Show, and surrounding our booth tends to be a lot of manufacturers that we deal with. Now is a great time of year to think about doing those boat projects versus waiting until the big rush right before the spring and summer seasons. We hope we can help you out!

NO5

A fully-restored classic wood pocket cruiser, designed by Bill Garden and built by Gordon Lacey as a salmon fishing launch in Brentwood Bay, Boat House No. 5 is stunning example of this cat boat design. After an $85,000 restoration by Philbrooks Boatyard from stem to stern, including engine and electrical, this vessel truly defines the term "Bristol Condition". Her gleaming paint and flawless varnish set Boat House No. 5 apart as a "one of a kind" picnic/day boat, while boasting a full sleeping cabin and proper marine head in her cozy fore cabin. Winner for â&#x20AC;&#x153;best Pocket Cruiserâ&#x20AC;? at the 2014 Victoria Classic Boat Festival.

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 1.

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).

1993 46’ GRAND BANKS EUROPA Twin 3208 TA CAT Diesel Engines. Galley up Model. Full Electronics, Thrusters. Zodiac with 15 HP 4 Stroke Yamaha. Maintained in Freshwater, Boat House Kept. Veteran NW Cruiser, all records available. $349,500 Contact Byron Hanke, Oregon Yacht Sales, (360) 904-7544. P641-2

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.

Spyglass Out & About

1. The Vancouver International Boat Show (January 17 to 21)

was a big hit this year. 2. The Portland Boat Show was also in January (10 to 14). Don't we all feel like this little guy on a jet ski? 3. "But... I want it!" Again, a kid at the Portland Boat Show reminds us all how we feel on the inside. 4.  Murray Johnson of B.C.'s Tactical Custom Boats mans his booth at the Vancouver International Boat Show. 5. Tactical Custom Boats with a model of their new T40-EY build. Hull #1 is due to launch this spring! 6. Here we see a Pets on Boats outtake of Tanks Jacobs-Hedin (this month's winner) on the dinghy. 7. The crew of Crossfire huddles up for a post-race analysis after the Winter Vashon Island Race. The race was the first iteration of the South Sound Series this year, the next of which is Toliva Shoals this month. 8. A bowperson's view from aboard Crossfire at the Winter Vashon Island Race. Low wind, cold rain, and plenty of fog! 9. The idyllic scene is a postcard from David and Carrol, who are cruising aboard their Nordhavn in Baja, Mexico. 10. The Seven Marine 627-horsepower outboards attract a crowd at the Vancouver International Boat Show. 11. Slo-Mo-Shun V, the star of one of our features this month, is enjoying retirement as a display at the Hydroplane and Raceboat Museum in Kent, Washington.
