FROM THE HELM

We Charge Madly Forward, 2018

The Vashon Island Race of December 2, 2017, the annual kickoff regatta to the South Sound Series, was a classic winter South Sound experience: winds less than five knots, oppressive fog, and a relentless light drizzle. I hopped aboard Norris Comer the Farr39 Crossfire, one of the fastest local sailboats, for a peek to see what the pros can do. “Yacht racing is stupid,” was the joke of the day as the crew went nowhere in a hurry, chasing light puffs and trading out foresails like dresses the day before prom. I did my best to be helpful to the bowman and effective railmeat as porpoises and seal sightings became common in Colvos Passage. I wondered if they were chasing winter blackmouth. As Vashon Island crept by and the crew, despite being soaked and cold, kept trimming and executing maneuvers at a pro level while laughing it up like lifetime tavern buddies, I fell in love with Pacific Northwest sailing all over again. The boater in me is downright giddy about this issue, for, not only do we continue to grow, but the content further cements Northwest Yachting as one of the most editorial-obsessed, unpredictable publications I’ve ever read of any genre. Throw in the boating and homegrown-local focus, and we must be blazing some kind of trail. In speaking of blazing, one example of our pioneering spirit is the feature-length examination of cannabis use on local waters. To be clear, we are neither endorsing nor lambasting marijuana use, rather consulting with contributing maritime lawyer Bill DeVoe on the confusing legal landscape we face in legal-use states. Whether you’re for or against is irrelevant with regards to this just-the-facts article. Everyone should know the law and our rights, and we are making

some kind of history as the first boating magazine I know of to even broach the topic. As always, we’re eager for your thoughts, so send ‘em over to editorial@nwyachting.com. I’m also shaking with excitement to announce that I’ll be participating in the upcoming R2AK adventure extravaganza as part of Team Wright Yachts! I’ll confess, it has been an odd kind of torture covering the infamous 750-mile, engineless race for the last two years from the sidelines, and this opportunity aboard a Corsair 970 Sport performance trimaran is a dream come true. Check out the eclectic story of the team’s formation – a story that involves humanpowered submarines, Norwegian reality TV, and plenty of fateful dreaming over beers – detailed in my feature within. Throw in our first Mexican Ports of Call installment, a riveting Ask the Experts about marine toilets, our annual Washington Marina and Fuel Dock Guide, and more, more, more, and 2018 is off to a roaring start. Thanks to our growth, I’m also pleased to unveil our three new interns. Eva Seelye, Evin Moore, and Christine Nguyen have only been with us for a few weeks but are already making their mark with the content and design of the magazine. Meet the growing team at the Northwest Yachting booth (East 614) at the Seattle Boat Show, January 26 to February 3. Load up on free copies, enter to win prizes, and exchange scuttlebutt. We look forward to meeting you, or reconnecting! I’m thrilled with the momentum of our publication and the ongoing support of our community of readers and advertisers. It’s because of you all that we work so hard to make this magazine the best it possibly can be. From our helm to yours, we wish you a 2018 full of aquatic prosperity and adventure. Best from Northwest,

Ian Farrier, 1947-2017 Legendary Multihull Designer Passes Away at 70 By Norris Comer

Ian Farrier, the multihull design legend and Pacific Northwest resident, passed away at age 70 on December 10, 2017. Farrier is best known for his foldable trimarans that have made their mark around the world from his native New Zealand to the far Arctic. His performance and adventure designs also laid the groundwork for Corsair Marine International, a successful company that Ian Farrier continues to produce designs according to Farrier’s multihull philosophy. On a personal level, I will be racing on a Farrier-inspired Corsair design (a Corsair 970 Sport) as a part of Team Wright Yachts in the upcoming R2AK adventure extravaganza (see page 78 for the full announcement). We have no additional details to report with regards to the cause of death at this time. The story goes that Farrier fell into multihulls in his early twenties as a young engineering student on the hunt for a proper offshore keelboat for a cruise to Tonga. While interested in the limited multihull options of the day, Farrier ultimately opted for a 38’ monohull keelboat for his adventure. The trip was eye-opening for him. From his engineering and boating perspective, his multihull experiences were safer, were more comfortable, and had better handling characteristics. After being exposed to the “trailer sailor” craze of the early 1970s, Farrier resolved to bring multihulls into the fold. He went to work, and the Farrier Folding System™ was invented and patented. The prototype Trailertri 18 was launched in 1974. In 1984, Farrier and his family moved to San Diego, where he received financial backing to help set up Corsair Marine. Farrier promptly designed his iconic Farrier 27 (F-27) and built the prototype. He also developed and established Corsair’s full production system and quality controls. The F-27 was, by most accounts, an overnight success. The folding system, that made the boat trailerable and easy to fit into a normal-sized slip, added an unprecedented level of versatility to the multihull sphere while still offering the benefits of performance and stability that multihull sailors love. After resigning from Corsair in 1991, Farrier joined the Pacific Northwest maritime community and moved to Bellevue, Washington. He formally ended all relationships with Corsair in December 2000 and continued to work on his own successful projects as Farrier Marine (check it out at f-boat.com). We salute Ian Farrier for his contributions to the boating world as both a sailor and designer, and we extend our condolences to his family and friends. He is in our thoughts as we prepare for our R2AK adventure aboard a Corsair 970 Sport, a boat with roots to Farrier’s genius.

True Tales of Adventure Sea Trials: Around the World on Duct Tape and Bailing Wire Review by Greg Van Belle

At one time or another, we have all fantasized about casting off and sailing away to distant oceans and tropical islands. In August 1973, the Wilcox family did just that. With plenty of near-shore sailing experience in blustery San Francisco Bay, the family of four set off in Vela, a heavily built 40’ sloop, toward Hawaii and beyond. Wendy Hinman, author of Tightwads on the Loose, brings us a very detailed story of the Wilcox family’s circumnavigation in her latest book, Sea Trials: Around the World with Duct Tape and Bailing Wire. A good adventure story has mystery, hope, challenge, and obstacles that must be overcome. Once those obstacles are dealt with, our heroes tend to live happily ever after. Unfortunately, most real-life adventures don’t respect the three-act structure in which we normally see them packaged. While many authors will manipulate the storyline a bit – omitting details here, skipping ahead there – to mold their tale into a somewhat traditional story, Hinman sticks to the script, telling the story pretty much as it happened and making liberal use of the wealth of information available to her. She is married to Garth Wilcox, who was 14 when Vela left San Francisco, so her access to the

family’s scrapbooks, clippings, photos, and manuscripts is complete. This accounts for the massive troves of detail – significant and not – throughout the book. Telling true stories is very hard. Hinman assumes no mystery here. Understanding that the reader will know that the family goes hard aground on a reef near Tonga relatively early in their journey, and acknowledging that we all know they make it home safely, she opens the book by describing the shipwreck before flashing back to the outset of the voyage. We know what is coming, we just don’t know when, and want to stick with the story for the payoff. It is exciting and interesting to see the family grow into their sea legs and learn how to live at sea. It is fascinating to be transported back to a time not that long ago when GPS wasn’t even a dream, and digital communication would have solved most of the issues the family faced. For sailors, this book is rich with information. For the sailor or for someone dreaming of circumnavigating, this book reads alterna-

tively as an inspirational tome and a harsh warning. It is stuffed full of detail that gives the reader a real sense of the day-to-day of the voyage. The reader gets to feel as if he or she is on deck as the Wilcoxes learn to deal with open ocean sailing for the first time. We learn from their mistakes, such as spending time and money fitting their boat with a working fireplace, despite their intent to spend most of their trip in the tropics. The high level of detail is also the main issue with the overall book. While sailors and boat enthusiasts can happily dwell in minute detail and extraneous information, it can make this book a little hard to sink into at times. There are threads that never get pulled and questions that never get answered. There are minor teasers that never get resolved. Throughout the book I kept finding myself either wanting a great deal more information or significantly less. The book is best as a sailor’s story, less so as an adventure story for the general public. Telling this story had to be a monumental challenge for Hinman. Her readers know the outcome before the first page, and the challenges the Wilcox family faces along the way do not lend themselves to tight, formulaic story structure. Even with her complete access to the family lore about the trip, telling good true stories and making them interesting is one of the most challenging tasks a writer can undertake. Hinman’s book is definitely worthy of a space on your bookshelf for a time at anchor when you can enjoy the immersion into the Wilcox family’s adventure-filled trip around the world.

Stranger Things: Bizarre Record Catches By Evin Moore

Mike Benoit with his massive, nearly 38-lb. Opah.

Two unusual Washington state sportfish records fell on the weekend of September 23 and 24, 2017 according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The first was the state record for largest opah. Mike Benoit, a resident of Gig Harbor, caught the opah that measured 32.5”and weighed in at 37.98 pounds. Benoit made the catch while live-bait fishing out of Westport. The new record surpasses the previous rcord-large opah catch, caught by Jim Watson 45 miles off the coast of Washington, by more than 2 pounds. The prized sportfish is native to tropical waters and rarely found in Washington. On average, one is caught every five years in the area. Even in areas where they are native, such as Hawaii, opah are still a highly prized catch. They are rare enough in the North Pacific Ocean, but in November 2017 one was caught off the coast of Maryland by angler Austin Ensor in a truly one-in-a-million catch. Reportedly, the anglers who caught it weren’t even sure what they had at first. Warm water fish found in cooler waters have become increasingly common, and studies, such as one published in 2015 by UW ocean-

ographer Curtis Deutsch, speculate the cause could be a mixture of rising ocean temperature and decreased oxygen availability. As average water temperature increases, more fish will look for cooler, oxygen-rich water, which could mean that these one-in-a-million catches will become increasingly likely. The day after Benoit’s opah catch, Erik Holcomb of Lynden caught a record setting blue shark. This blue shark measured 71” and weighed in at 49.50 pounds. Holcomb fished with using anchovies for live bait. This new record surpasses the previous record by 22 pounds (although the previous blue shark was the first ever submitted for a state record). Zachary Jackson of Arizona caught the previous record holder 57 miles off the coast of Washington. The International Game Fish Association’s world record for blue sharks is 528 pounds, so there is plenty of room for new state records. However, shark sport fishing for species uncommon in the region is not generally considered sustainable or wise practice. Perhaps our relatively wimpy Pacific Northwest record is one to be proud of after all.

Lake Coeur d’Alene Angler “Luckyâ€? Miraculous Derby Prize Win Gary March of Worley, Idaho, an avid angler, is the winner of the 2017 West Marine Northwest Salmon Derby Series’ rae grand prize: a fully-equipped, 22’ Hewescraft OceanPro aluminum boat with Honda outboards and trailer valued at around $85,000. He won with a rae ticket that deďŹ ed 4,000 to 1 odds. But March’s win is not even the most miraculous part of the story, for the Idahoan received notiďŹ cation of his prize on what might have been the worst week of his life. Tragedy struck the man on a mule deer hunting trip at Fort Peck Reservoir in northeastern Montana. “I was in an area that didn’t have cell phone coverage, and was nine miles from the boat launch when I lost control of my truck and boat. It all went o a 30’ embankment,â€? said March. March’s nickname of “Luckyâ€? seemed more like dark irony at the time. The boat and trailer were damaged while the truck was totaled. The kicker? The boat that went over the cli was also a 22’ Hewescraft OceanPro, the exact same boat as the one he won in the derby rae. We’re still crunching the numbers in our lab, but the odds of a man known as Lucky losing his boat over a cli and winning the exact same boat in a 4,000 to 1 rae drawing seems about as likely as the Sasquatch running for Governor. “How exciting for Gary to win this fully loaded boat, and I can’t wait to see him out on the water at Coeur d’Alene next summer,â€? said Mark Yuasa, a new director of the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) who coordinates the Northwest Salmon Derby Series. “There was nothing more thrilling than to hear how happy he was after winning this impressive, fully-geared ďŹ shing boat.â€?

electronics package, Scotty downriggers, Dual Electronics stereo system, and more. The cherry on top of this feelgood story is that March’s name was entered into the derby series drawing after ďŹ shing the Lake Coeur d’Alene “The Big One Derbyâ€? (July 26 to 30, 2017).

A Westport commercial crab fisherman has been convicted of stealing offshore crab pots. Larrin Breitsprecher, 57, was found guilty of possessing stolen property and related charges by a jury, and sentenced to house arrest and a fine of $5,000 by Grays Harbor County Superior Court Judge Mark McCauley. This verdict concludes an investigation by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) that began a year ago. According to WDFW Police Captain Dan Chadwick, the investigation into Breitsprecher began after a deckhand who worked for him reported to officers that Breitsprecher ordered him to steal crab pots while fishing in Westport. Officers from the Quinault Indian Nation and WDFW obtained a warrant and searched Breitsprecher’s gear shack located at the Port of Westport. They seized 32 crab pots and determined that at least 24 of these pots were stolen from other crabbers. Breitsprecher’s house arrest will begin in May and will last for 90 days. With a price of $200 to $250 dollars for a single, fully-rigged commercial crab pot, the theft of even a few can seriously cost a crab fisherperson. A loss of more than a few pots could potentially cost a fisherperson a quarter or more of his or her yearly salary. Poaching and theft of crab pots from rival commercial fishing vessels is quite common, and something that WDFW would like to get under control. According to a WDFW news release, Captain Chadwick stated that "We appreciate that the Grays Harbor prosecutor's office pursued this case, because it demonstrates that the law extends to ocean waters." Captain Chadwick also wished to express gratitude to the Quinault tribal police for their help during the investigation. Theft of crabs and crab pots is a difficult crime to prevent, as crabbing involves leaving hundreds of dollars of equipment unattended for extended amounts of time in remote locations. Some fishermen have taken to using GPS to track their buoys, locking their pots with padlocks, and some have suggested using cameras, if the pots are close to shore, to get a look at the thieves. A greater awareness of the problem would also help, so be sure to report any stolen crab pots to the police.

Double Take

Hiyu's Transformation By Eva Seelye

Last February marked the beginning of a new and vibrant life for the retired Washington State Ferry, Hiyu, as an array of Seattleites cheered the beloved vessel while it made its way from the Eagle Harbor shipyard, through the Ballard Locks, and onto Lake Union. For over 50 years, this 165’ vessel ferried passengers across Washington’s waters. Carrying a modest 34 vehicles, the little Hiyu was the leading lady for the Point Defiance-Tahlequah, Vashon Island route back in the day. With an increase in traffic and a speed limit

of only two knots, she couldn’t quite keep up with the demand. She was reassigned to the San Juan Islands inter-island route and eventually, to retirement at Eagle Harbor shipyard in 2015. “Cute” and “baby” are just a couple of the many names this little ferry has acquired over the years, ironic as “hiyu” actually means “big” or “plenty.” Other than a few claims to fame in 1999 in a Seahawks commercial and a couple forgettable films, the ferry remained in the floating shipyard with the other broken and forgotten ves-

Ingredients: • 5 750-ml bottles of port wine (go cheap, mixing quality) • 1 750-ml bottle of bourbon (or other liquor from the whiskey family) • 1 750-ml bottle of clear aquavit (or other clear liquor like vodka or white rum) • 3 whole cardamom pods (cracked) • 1 cinnamon stick • 6 whole cloves • 1 strip of orange peel • 1 8” square of cheesecloth • 3/4 cup white sugar • 15 oz. raisins • 6 oz. blanched slivered almonds

Cocktail of the Month

Glogg

Make the Drink:

Harkening from a collage of frigid Nordic countries, glogg (spelled glögg in Sweden and Iceland, gløgg in Norway and Denmark, and glögi in Finland and Estonia) has kept spirits warm during winters since time immemorial. Essentially the heated sangria of the Viking kind, glogg is annually celebrated at the upcoming Winter Rendezvous in Poulsbo via a town-wide competition known as Gloggfest. There are many twists to glogg, so experimenting to develop

your “secret family recipe” to fit in at the nearest glogg party may be in order. We offer this traditional recipe as a starting place for the aspiring glogg makers among us who want to do it right. This is a great drink for a chilly Northwest winter afternoon after the boat is safely tucked away for the evening. We’re thirsty for more recipes. For a chance to appear in the next issue, send yours to editorial@nwyachting.com

Directions: Heat port wine over medium heat to a near-simmer in a large, lidded pot. Add bourbon and aquavit, and bring back to near-simmer. While the booze concoction heats, place the cardamom pods, cinnamon stick, cloves, and orange peel onto the center of the square of cheesecloth. Gather together the edges of the cheesecloth into a bundle, and tie with twine to secure. Set aside. When the near-simmering concoction is hot, carefully light it with a long-handle match. Wearing a heatproof cooking mitt, carefully pour the sugar into the flaming concoction. Let the mixture burn for one minute. Put the lid on the stockpot to extinguish the flames, and turn off the heat. Add the cheesecloth bundle of spices, the raisins, and almonds to the warm wine mixture and let steep on low heat for one hour. Traditionalists will strain out the steeped raisins and almonds to add individually to each guest’s mug as a garnish. A small, coffee-style glass mug with handle is the proper drinking vessel. One can bottle up leftover glogg and store in the fridge for up to a year. Be sure to save the steeped raisins and almonds too in a separate covered container in the fridge, for the glogg isn’t quite the same without the traditional garnish.

The Big Thaw: Arctic Sea Ice at Record Lows By Evin Moore

Satellite images from the National Snow and Ice Data Center published December 6, 2017 show a record low amount of extant Arctic ice in the Chukchi Sea for the month of November 2017. The total amount of arctic ice was at the third lowest ever recorded in this era of satellite observation, but the amount of ice in the Chukchi Sea was well below average, which continues a year-long trend. The Chukchi Sea’s condition is a key indicator of oceanographic influence on levels of extent sea ice. The less-than-normal amount of sea ice in the Chukchi Sea could be caused by unusually warm air blowing in from the southwest.

It is also possible that a strong oceanic heat flow from the Bering Strait into the Chukchi Sea could be a factor, a view that is supported by data collected by Rebecca Woodgate of the University of Washington while on the research vessel Norseman II. To learn more and see the images for yourself, visit nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews.

Sargo is a natural beauty and has been optimized for performance with high quality Antal winches and hardware, performance sails, and low-stretch, Dyneema running rigging. Nothing shouts out “serious cruising yacht” like an unpainted aluminum hull, hard dodger, scoop stern, stern arch, solar panels and steering-vane.

Sea Ray Heads Into the Unknown By Evin Moore

On December 5, the Brunswick Corporation announced they intend to sell Sea Ray, one of their 15 brands. The classic boat brand, founded in 1959 by Cornelius Nathaniel (Connie) Ray III and purchased by Brunswick in 1986, will be sold in the first half of 2018, according to a statement released by CEO Mark Schwabero. Lazard’s Middle Market advisory group will be working as Brunswick’s investment banker for the sale, according to a press release. "Our marine strategy is focused on developing, manufacturing, and distributing market-leading products to recreational and commercial marine consumers through our portfolio of engine, boat and parts, and accessories businesses," said Schwabero. The sale comes after the third quarter earnings report from Brunswick was released on Oc-

32 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JANUARY 2018

tober 26 that showed earnings of $79 million, a loss of $6.3 million from the same period last year. Sales from the boating segment were up, but hurricane Irma hurt sales of product primarily manufactured in Florida. "This decision was made after careful consideration, and reflects the evolving contribution that the Sea Ray brand has made to our marine portfolio,” Schwabero commented. "Our remaining brands will continue to be important elements of a robust, balanced marine business, with our boat portfolio serving healthy, expanding market segments," Schwabero explained. "This more focused strategy will provide the best opportunities for growth and will complement our other marine offerings, including engines, parts, and accessories. This shift will also improve our risk and margin profile and is consistent with our commitment to drive shareholder value.”

Brunswick hopes that Sea Ray’s decades-old reputation for quality will make it an attractive opportunity for perspective buyers. "We believe that the Sea Ray business, through its leading brand and exciting product line, offers attractive value creation opportunities to a new owner," Schwabero added. "Sea Ray is an iconic brand that is rich with history, with a reputation for craftsmanship, quality, and styling. Sea Ray's manufacturing facilities are among the most advanced in the

marine industry, with talented and dedicated workforces." The Sea Ray brand will continue to be supported by Brunswick until the sale. There is no word yet on how the sale will affect Sea Ray employees at any of the Sea Ray plant locations or dealerships, one of which is in Lake Union. Lake Union Sea Ray has three locations in Western Washington. Employees worldwide have been notified of the sale and will receive updates as the sale moves forward.

Our marine strategy is focused on developing, manufacturing and distributing market-leading products to recreational and commercial marine consumers through our portfolio of engine, boat and parts, and accessories businesses. —Mark Schwabero, CEO, Brunswick Corp.

es t o N s s e n i s Bu Fisheries Supply InNEWvation Award 2017 Winners Fisheries Supply Company, a longtime Seattle-based supplier of marine products, announced the winners for the company’s fourth annual InNEWvation Award Show on November 16, 2017, at the Pacific Marine Expo. This annual event honors the best and most innovative new marine products on the market as determined by a large panel of industry experts invited by Fisheries. The methodology is simple, as the invited panelists are invited to review the products in-person and rate them on a standardized scale. Once tallied, the panelists’ ratings effectively act as votes to determine the product winners across 14 categories. Notably, Torqueedo’s Cruise Fixed Pods won both the Propulsion and Fisheries Supply Employees Choice awards. Additionally, the MOB+ Wireless

Man Overboard System won both the Grand Prize and Safety categories. Fans of Kanberra’s tea tree products will get a kick out of the company’s new Industrial Fogger & Concentrate that aerosolizes the cleansing oil, the winner of the Maintenance category. Fisheries Supply Company was founded in Seattle in 1928. Initially located on Seattle’ waterfront on Pier 4 (now renamed Pier 55), the family business is now located near Gas Works Park on north Lake Union. Touted as one of the largest, if not the largest, marine product supplier in the Pacific Northwest, they have over 100,000 products in their inventory for boat dealers; builders, and yards; chandleries; and both commercial mariners and recreational boaters. You can learn more about them at fisheriessupply.com.

WA Salmon Ban Gains Traction By Eva Seelye

After Cooke Aquaculture’s Atlantic salmon net-pen collapsed off Cypress Island in August of 2017, sending 305,000 Atlantic salmon into Puget Sound, Washington State Senator Kevin Ranker (D-Orcas Island) proposed to file an Atlantic salmon net-pen farming ban that would slowly phase out the practice through 2025. After taking state expenses and use of resources into account, State Representatives Jim Walsh (R-Aberdeen) and Drew MacEwen (R-35th District including Hood Canal) believe the issue calls for a more urgent plan of action—banning all farming of Atlantic salmon in Washington waters. If signed by Governor Jay Inslee, the ban will be effective immediately. Netpen farming of native fin fish species would still be allowed under this proposal. Samples collected by t h e Wa s h Drew MacEwen ington State Department of Fish and Wildlife have confirmed the released Atlantic salmon are disease-free and sexually immature, with Cooke Aquaculture claiming their escaped salmon feed poses no competitive risks to native fish. The company shares interest in saving wild salmon, but they Jim Walsh don’t believe the answer to restoring them is by banning salmon farming. As of now, all new permits for net-pen operations are temporarily prohibited while the state investigates August’s Atlantic salmon spill. Both the Ranker/ Walsh and MacEwen proposals will be considered on January 8 when lawmakers reconvene. JANUARY 2018 || NORTHWEST YACHTING

The purchase of Salmon Bay Marina is a step toward fulfilling our Century Agenda goal to double the number of jobs in our region associated with fishing and maritime... —Tom Albro, Comission President, Port of Seattle

said Commission President Tom Albro in a news release from the Port of Seattle. “It also protects urban industrial and maritime land, which is also environmentally wise.” he added. The Century Agenda is the Port of Seattle’s plan to add 100,000 new jobs to the Seattle area over the next 25 years, for a total of 300,000 port-related jobs in the region.

The Port wants to do this while simultaneously reducing their environmental footprint. The addition of Salmon Bay Marina, with its 60,000-square-foot space, is a step toward this goal. The space could potentially be used as space for light industry that could support maritime and manufacturing businesses in the area.

Many boaters who use the marina are asking how the purchase will affect them. In a press release, the Port of Seattle has addressed the most frequently asked questions. On the question of whether this will affect moorage rates, the Port has stated that they, like other marinas, annually review their moorage rates using a moorage rate study that compares the rates of other marinas in the region. Because the Port, as per Commission Resolution, is instructed to be run as a business, they must charge market rates,

so expect the rates to increase as any private marina would in a strong economy. Others are asking if Salmon Bay Marina customers will now have to pay the 12.84% leasehold tax that is required of those leasing public property, such as moorage space. The answer is yes, there will now be a leasehold tax on marina customers. Private marinas are not subject to this tax, so look for private moorage if you need a cheaper rate. Continued on Page 38

Besides these larger questions, the Port answered easier questions, such as whether there will be free parking; the Port does not anticipate a change to the current parking policy. The Port has stated that they will not be accommodating any guest moorage at this point, but this many be subject to change in the future. A new month-to-month lease will need to be signed by slip holders. When it comes to paperwork the Port has stated that, “All slip holders will be required to present the following: proof of Insurance in the amount of $300,000 (per RCW 53.08.480, coverage shall include general, legal, and pollution coverage), current Washington State Vessel Registration, signed Port Moorage Agreement, and signed Port Best Management Practices policy. Existing liveaboards will also have to fill out the Authorization to Liveaboard document.” The Port has stated that subleases will not be allowed, the boat houses will be removed, and that a sprinkler system will be added to the docks as a fire deterrent. The marina will be managed by the Port’s Recreational Boating Department, which already manages several marinas. There will be benefits for the slip holders once the Port takes over as owners. “If there is a maintenance issue, our professional craftspeople in Marine Maintenance will be able to respond in a timely manner. There is the ability to pay your moorage fees online. As a Port of Seattle moorage customer, you are eligible to get discounted rates at our other Port marinas. You will have access to the Recreational Boating staff,” the Port stated. For more information, check out portseattle.org and stay tuned for updates.

Intrepid Explorers

Jammin' in the Tri-Cities

Dear Northwest Yachting and Peter Schrappen, I wish I had been at the FLIBS [Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show] this year. I would love to have had an opportunity to speak with the representatives from the Northwest boating interests. My wife and I will be towing our 34’ Aspen from South Carolina to There's plenty of PNW the Bellingham, Washington, area to explore, and we're in May 2018. We here to help. plan to spend the entire summer exploring Washington, B.C., and Alaska by boat. I have used articles in your magazine for ideas of where to visit and what to see. Thank you for that! However, there is just one area that is totally frustrating me in my planning. IF you want boaters to visit the NW, then you likely expect them to tow their rigs there. This leads to the one single biggest problem that I still have not solved. Where to park the truck and boat trailer for the summer while I am exploring all of these ports and sights by boat? If I wanted to stay at just one marina, then parking is normally no issue, just park there at your marina. But where we plan to travel all about for the summer on the boat, marinas do not welcome a vehicle left there. You have me hooked, we are coming to the NW to utilize the marine facilities, restaurants and spend money, now if someone will just let me park my truck and trailer for the summer someplace so we can get started... (I really would like some help with this since I do not know the area...) Thanks, Bill Haney of Unadilla, New York

Norris, That was an interesting article you wrote We don't get any hand holding by the about your trip to Idaho (November 2017 lock master, and the lock itself is huge. It's issue).

To help ensure that your vessel is in fighting form, we’ve compiled a list of boatyards in the Puget Sound area where you can haul out your boat in preparation for the glorious spring and summer cruising ahead.

haven’t already, now is the perfect time for that bottom job and below-water inspection. Nobody wants to waste valuable cruise time at the docks dealing with problems that could’ve been avoided with a haul out earlier in the year when snow flurries and drizzle kept most of us on the mountains or by the fireplace. We’ve included helpful icons to represent some common services offered at each of these boatyards, such as power, water, pressure washing, and whether the boatyard allows

do-it-yourself repairs. You’ll find helpful contact information listed for every location, as well as websites whenever possible. As with last month’s Marina & Fuel Dock Guide, we recommend that you call your boatyard of choice in advance to ascertain whether it has the specific services you’re looking for, and if it can accommodate your boat. As always, any suggestions or comments can be shared with us via email (editorial@nwyachting.com) or snail mail.

Hello Norris, On behalf of the Eckerd College Waterfront Program, I am writing to thank you for your support of this year’s 13th Annual Triton Inshore Slam Fishing Tournament. This is our biggest fundraiser for the year. It was a marvelous day and we had a wonderful turnout. Yo u r c o n t r i b u tions to this tournament help assist the efforts of the Eckerd College Waterfront Program, one of the larg es t co lleg iate wa t e r s p o r t s p r o grams in the southeastern U.S. A distinct feature of the Waterfront Program is the Eckerd community members’ ability to use the facilities without membership in a club or organization. There is, however, a team sponsored by the Waterfront for those interested in a more formal approach to membership – the Eckerd College Search and Rescue Team (EC-SAR). Our program is a crucial part of Eckerd College and remains rightful to its founding principle: “Education through Service.” While providing a reprieve from the rigors of the classroom, the Waterfront Program

Once again, we are grateful for your support for this event and our program. Truly, Theresa Szlembarski, Administrative Coordinator of the Eckerd College Waterfront Program Ed: As a proud Eckerd College and EC-SAR alum, it was my pleasure to donate Northwest Yachting magazines to our boating friends of Florida who participated in the Triton Inshore Slam. Keep up the great work with regards to fostering a community engagement approach to the water life. The efforts of the Eckerd College Waterfront Program certainly left an impact on me.

Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 Beneteau isn’t the only French boat maker in town! Wauquiez has been making quality blue-ocean cruisers for decades, and now they welcome their newest build, the Pilot Saloon 42, to their fleet come March 2018. With all Wauquiez yachts built at the company’s yard in Neuville-en-Ferrain near France’s northern border, the Pilot Saloon 42 goes best with a bottle of Champagne (the nearest iconic wine region) and a box of Belgian chocolates from next door. With modern styling and an emphasis on safety and comfort, the 42 should fit right in with other comparable Eurocruisers of 2018. Right away, one spies the hallmarks of the modern Euro-cruiser: an efficient plumb bow, a cockpit that has both the dual helms of a racer and the foldable cockpit table with seating to entertain like a cruiser, a low-profile above-waterline

design, and bow/hull chines. The 42 also features a dual-rudder configuration and two optional keels (standard vs. deep) that should equip the skipper with what he or she needs to take on open vs. inland waters of all kinds. The foldable transom is comparable to those on Beneteau, Hanse, and Dehler sailboats, and a popular, proven setup. As far as the engine is concerned, a 54 CV Yanmar SD (sail drive) is standard, while the 80 CV Yanmar SD is offered as an option. The Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 has “saloon” in the name for a reason, and some of the 42’s most standout features are below deck. The companionway is oriented forward, nearly amidships, and the hatch, when open, has an almost convertible effect on the cabin. Downstairs, a visitor is greeted by one or two layouts (two-cabin or three-cabin).

Both layouts enjoy the signature Wauquiez salon with extra lighting, thanks to the raised profile of the “pilothouse” design that offers panoramic views. The full galley and a chart table with seating is oriented port, while familystyle wraparound seating with a table sits starboard. The master suite, complete with large berth and en suite head, is located at the bow, while either one or two staterooms, also with access to another enclosed head, are aft of the stairs. Interested? The Wauquiez Pilot Saloon 42 sails her maiden voyage in March 2018, and there’s sure to be plenty of buzz. You can learn more from the Seattle-based, West Coast dealer Discovery Yachts, which recently took on the line. The base price is $449,806.

Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht At the time of this writing, a brand-new Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht is tucked aboard a transPacific shipping vessel departing its native Australia. The 5400 is en route for the West Coast to join the fleet of Seattle dealer Emerald Pacific Yachts. Considered the big sister of the new Riviera 4800 Sport Yacht (that we wrote about in our November 2017 Arrivals section), these mid-sized luxury yachts emphasize sporty performance and spacious, high-quality accommodations. Fun is the general impression upon a first glance of the 5400. Like the smaller 4800, the electric tender garage built into the transom is an enticing feature, especially for a boat this size. A generous, hydraulic swimstep aft with a recessed stainless steel swim ladder has easy access to the covered cockpit seating. One can walk forward upon either port or starboard walkways (with high railings, a good safety

feature) to the open lounge seating of the bow. The aforementioned cockpit seating is about as expansive as it gets, with wraparound seating near a large table and a summer galley (complete with epic BBQ grill station). On a nice day, the skipper can open a sun hatch over the cockpit seating and the cabin’s glass panel to essentially join both the interior and exterior spaces. The full galley, more seating, and racecar-style helm station are located inside. Notable among the accommodations is the king-sized island berth of the master suite forward.

As far as power is concerned, the 5400 comes with a Volvo Penta propulsion system with twin IPS800 D11 engines and pod drives as standard. There are joystick steering controls both at the main helm in the cabin and at a cockpit control station. If you’re looking around for a mid-sized sport yacht with greatlooking accommodations, the new Riviera 5400 Sport Yacht may be calling your name. If you’re interested, check out local dealer Emerald Pacific Yachts for more information and pricing at emeraldpacificyachts.com.

New & Notable Boats

Bavaria Sport 400 Among the many yachts making their West Coast debuts at the 2018 Seattle Boat Show are a fleet of Bavaria models, including the Virtess 420 Fly (that we previewed in our March 2017 issue), Sport 450, and Sport 400. These German-made luxury sport yachts have many popular design features, including notably generous accommodations for their sizes. The Bavaria Sport 400 (S40), is a modern-styled motor yacht that should be right at home island hopping here in the Pacific Northwest or turning heads on Lake Union. The exterior is very fun-in-the-sun oriented, complete with large swimstep off the stern, seating, and a table that eats up most of the cockpit, and a large open foredeck with a padded sun bed. The S40 comes in four very different deck layouts: Open, ST, HT, and Coupe. Perhaps the

biggest difference in these layouts is the cabin, for the Open version removes the cover of the cabin completely for a large ski boat-like experience at the helm, while the others retain, and even expand, the cabin’s prominence aboard. One can even get a S40 with an almost completely glass cabin with retractable hardtop, offering the airiness of the Open without sacrifi cing the protection of a

proper cabin. All the layouts offer four berths below for extended cruising. With the abundance of layouts, there is probably an S40 that will resonate with would-be owners. If you want to see one in person, check out local dealer JK3 Yacht Sales’ booth at the upcoming Seattle Boat Show. For more info, check out jk3yachts.com and contact them for pricing.

Specs LOA (with swim step): 43’6” • Beam: 13’1” • Draft: 3’3” Displacement (depending on deck layout): 19,059 to 20,126 lbs. Tankage (Fuel/Fresh): 198 gals./66 gals. Local Dealer: JK3 Yacht Sales, 206-285-6200

New & Notable Boats

Sabre 48 Salon Express New to the Pacific Northwest from Maine waters is the 2018 Sabre 48 Salon Express, the builder’s most popular model with over 100 sold in six years. Of course the 2018 model we’re about to experience will have new features, like a Volvo IPS system. As the childhood rhyme goes about waiting in line, sometimes being second can indeed be the best. Perhaps the defining aesthetic feature of the Express is the downright epic foredeck, an iconic Sabre feature. The ample foredeck space leaves plenty of “working” space if needed, as well as a great place to lounge while underway. Moving aft, both port and starboard walkways have high stainless steel railings for safety (remember, one hand for you and the other for the boat). The cockpit has enough seating for a family (or two) with partial protection from the elements thanks to the hardtop. Inside, the large glass windows of the cabin make for a cheery, well-lit feel. Inter-

estingly, while the cabin features the salon (with plenty of comfortable seating) and the helm, one ventures forward and down a flight of stairs to find the full galley that is positioned near the two enclosed suites (with their separate en suite enclosed heads and queen-sized berths). The layout seems like a good idea to keep the entertainment in one area and the busy cooks (and resulting pots and pans to be cleaned) below.

The Express has two inboard 550-horsepower Volvo D8 IPS 700s diesels. The manufacturer publishes a zippy cruising speed of 24 knots at 2400 RPM, with a max of 33 knots. If the Sabre 48 Salon Express catches your eye, you can learn more from local dealer Bellingham Yachts (bellinghamyachts.com). The new 48 arrives in February and is currently available for spring delivery. Base price is $1,190,000, with factory options is $1,318,750.

New & Notable Boats

Northwest 62 The April 2016 merger of yacht brokerage Seattle Yachts and Northwest Yachts (an Anacortes-based boat builder) has helped launch a flurry of new designs for 2018 that are awaiting buyers who want no-nonsense yachts that look like they can take just about anything. The Northwest Yachts line features designs ranging from 48’ to 75’, with the handsome Northwest 62 slotting right in the middle. The general appearance looks like a yacht that could double up as an expedition charter, with a dramatic plunging bow and railed space on the foredeck. The walkway aft on the starboard side is deeply seated and partially protected by the yacht’s superstructure, almost to suggest that you’ll need the added shelter for the wild waters for which the 62 is built for. Although the 62 looks like she could be made of steel, she is a fiberglass boat, albeit one with a reinforced layer of Kevlar forward to handle almost any grounding scenario.

The Portuguese flybridge is a Northwest Yachts signature, for all their designs over 48’ have one. A covered helm station with guest seating and space for a dinghy with davit are some of the attractions. The interior takes full advantage of the expansive structure with three enclosed berths and arrangements for up to nine crewmembers. There is also full standing headroom for most of the engine room, which will be appreciated

by those who want comfortable access to the twin John Deere inboard diesels (1,000 horsepower total, 500 horsepower each). There are a lot of intriguing design features at play with this local design, and we look forward to seeing the first ones ply our waterways and beyond. The Northwest 62 and her sister ships have “Alaska or Bust” written all over them. For more information, check out seattleyachts.com, the website of local dealer Seattle Yachts.

Eye of the Tiger Iris240/241 NightSpotter Handheld Thermal Scope / $2,755.00 You keep a weather eye on the horizon during the day, but let’s face it, that job is more difficult once the sun goes down. The NightSpotter Hand Held Scope from Iris Innovations takes night vision to a whole new level. Its extreme sensitivity to heat radiation— processing incredibly low temperature differences starting at 50 meter-Kelvin — allows it to detect hidden objects, channel markers, debris, and even humans in man-over-board searches in crisp, high resolution video images, all without an external light source. This compact, lightweight beacon is complete with adjustable focus settings, up to 4x digital zoom, and contains a built-in high-power LED torch, a composite video output, and adjustable brightness controls with white-hot, black-hot, and red-hot palate functions. The best part? You could say the NightSpotter is semi-

aquatic – take it out to spot wildlife or bring it home to check your pipes or roof for leaks. The portable night vision scope comes in its own neoprene pouch, but the waterproof NightSpotter Rugged Equipment Case is also available for those wanting a little more protection. It’s compact and extremely tough with custom nooks for NightSpotter accessories – i.e. battery chargers, cables, adapters and even documents. Check boat-cameras.com for your local dealer, listed on Amazon for $2,755.

Lowrance Link-6 VHF Radio / $189.00 Every vessel needs a radio; but with endless devices to choose from with various settings, colors, buttons, you name it, it can not only be pricey but also a little daunting. Lowrance’s Link-6 VHF Radio is a fantastic option on the cheaper end of the spectrum. It’s a Class D DSC-approved, waterproof, easyto-use, and relatively inexpensive marine radio that allows for clear communication. It also comes with a new easy installation process, thanks to the front-mountable design. The startup wizard will get you going in no time. Simply enter your region, country, MMSI number, call sign, GPS source, and time offset and you’re good to go. If you’re ever on the water after dark, you know how critical night vision can be. 50 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JANUARY 2018

The Link-6 VHF Radio’s LCD screen switches from its bright daytime blackon-white display to a white-on-black screen for the p.m., saving your sight for the buoys. This all-in-one radio includes multiple scan modes with all international channels – easily maneuverable with the rotary dial – as well as a dedicated Channel 16 key on both the attached four-button fist mic and the radio’s front panel. The radio also comes with a bright red distress signal button on the front, but consider hooking it up to a compatible

GPS receiver to relay your position if ever in distress. A bracket and gasket are both included for a flush-mount option if you so choose. Available in two colors: white or black. The Link-6 VHF Radio is currently $189.00 at lowrance.com.

Steppin' Up

Dan-Fender Fender2step / From $100.00

Is it a long way up or down from your dinghy or dock? Why leap when you can two-step? The Fender2step™ from Dan-Fender takes the next step with a safe and comfortable non-marring combination of inflatable fender and ladder. Use the Fender2step solo or combine multiples for even greater access to or from your topsides. Dan-Fender says the Fender2step is made with strong marine-grade PVC integrally injection molded to solid rope holds. Each fender features a high-grade metal air valve with protective dirt/salt screw cap. The manufacturer immersion tests each fender to ensure leak-free and airtight performance. Inflate your Fender2step to 2 psi at 68˚F using a standard compressor fitted with an accessory air pistol, or use a Dan-Fender hand pump.

The maximum load for this two-step fender is 225 pounds. It’s a handy size, at 22” in length, 17.7” in width, with a hold 7” deep. It weighs just 6 pounds. Dan-Fender recommends securing your Fender2step to separate strongpoints using minimum rope size of 3/8”; never tie both sides of the product to the same strongpoint. Guests and crew of all ages will dance onboard with a Fender2step in your choice of white, medium blue, or navy blue with black rope holds. Optional colors are black and grey fenders with rope holds in grey, blue, navy, or red. Find your step at Fisheries Supply or amazon.com from about $100.00. Who wouldn’t want to make that climb easier?

Pitch Without a Glitch Humphree Interceptor Trim Tabs Trim tab systems are often the unsung heroes of a boat trip. Neither loud nor flashy, the ideal humble trim tabs operate quietly under the water to offer a plethora of benefits to the boat operator, especially for planning hulls that want to get out of the hole and onto a plane quickly. Generally, trim tabs are adjustable, horizontally oriented, stainless steel hydraulic fins that help increase speed, reduce pounding, correct listing, offset prop torque, reduce fuel consumption, reduce wake size, and improve performance-related variables. Enter the new Interceptor trim tab systems from Humphree that feature many potentially gamechanging features. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that the Interceptor systems are not hydraulic, and are instead powered by a 24-VDC brushless electric motor. The aim of this design is to eliminate the “soft” response of hydraulic systems with more precise and faster control for tab adjustment. For fast boats, quick trim tab adjustment can be critical for a smooth ride.

62 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JANUARY 2018

Readily observable are the orientation and make of the blades themselves. The blades are made of high-quality composite material instead of the classic stainless steel. Provided that the composite material has the durability of steel, the contemporary design should be an upgrade purely on the merit that the operator need not worry about zinc anodes. The manufacturer still recommends a yearly inspection, but that’s wise no matter what system one uses. The orientation of the blades is vertical instead of the horizontal, and some counterintuitive physics are at play. The blades are installed on the stern like traditional tabs, but don’t operate by working against the water pressure that builds up under the hull. Rather than a horizontal fin pressing down, the vertical Interceptor blades creates a pressure area forward of the transom that lifts the stern. On paper at least, these systems should get the job done in a more compact, easily managed package with faster response times.

Seattle-based S3 Maritime, a yacht systems, service, and support company, recently installed a Humphree Interceptor system on a San Juan 48 motor yacht. Greg Allen of S3 Maritime had these impressions: “I think it is important to discuss why the Interceptors represent a significant step forward in trim and roll control. By creating a high-pressure area forward of the transom, they can trim a vessel with less drag than traditional trim tabs. This equates to fuel savings. Because the Interceptors react faster than trim tabs, they can be used for roll stabilization as well as trim.” The Interceptor lineup is quite extensive with the X-series, H-series, and HE-series, with the primary variables being width and deployment depth of the blades. The X-series is targeted for boats 23’ to 60’, the H-series for boats 40’ to 150’, and the HE-series for boats 50’ to 200’. As far as installation is concerned, the manufacturer touts a one- to three-day installation time (depending on necessary prep). To see what system is best for your boat, learn about pricing, and find more information, check out humphree.com. Prices vary widely depending on model.

Left: We see one of Humphree’s Interceptor trim tabs. Notice that the fin is made of a composite instead of traditional stainless steel.

In Your Wildest Dreams Here we see the superyacht Maltese Falcon underway during the Transatlantic Race of 2011. For this stunner, the glowing prose is not hyperbole. The superyacht features the completely novel Falcon Rig that consists of three self-standing and rotating masts that hoist 15 sails for a whopping 25,791 square feet (2,400 square meters) of sail area. Built for the late Tom Perkins of entrepreneurial noteriety, the Maltese Falcon is now owned by Pleon Ltd. for epic chartering purposes. Built by Perini Navi and designed with a collaboration with naval architect Gerard Dijkstra & Partners, the superyacht has a LOA of 289 feet (88 meters). Luxurious accommodations include expansive outdoor hangout spaces, including an aft triple stepped deck and dining area, and a full gym. For an outdoor movie theater experience, a projector displays images upon one of the sails. The Maltese Falcon is one wild ride! More information is available at symaltesefalcon.com.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

All About the Blackmouth! Call me Captain Obvious for writing like Larry King in his long-defunct USA Today column, but here it goes: for my money, the best thing about the January saltwater fishing scene is winter blackmouth! OK, we all know that’s the draw in the Northwest right now. Resident Chinook in the waters of Washington and British Columbia are hardly a secret. For 50 years or so, folks have been reeling in these tasty salmon that stick around our waters gorging on baitfish and growing to 20 pounds or more. This month we’ll talk about how to get on your (fish) marks, get set, and go in the new year for blackmouth. Whether you’re an old hand or just getting started, a little primer is never a bad thing for this cold weather pursuit. First on the list for resident Chinook fishing is to make sure your boat, motors, electronics, and gear are all in good shape and ready to run. Fresh non-ethanol fuel and fuel stabilizer are key to keep the boat running in the winter. Check all your systems. Make sure your trolling motor is running well. Giving some extra attention and love to your kicker will keep it from kicking the bucket in cold-blooded

conditions. Go through the operation and connections of your electronics. A good chart plotter, sounder, and radar are all crucial to making your vessel a fish-catching machine. You need these electronics to be your eyes underwater and through the fog. You also need to know how to use them. Sit on the boat and push buttons before you go. Do I know what my plotter and sounder are telling me? Do I know their operation well enough to navigate, set marks, and find the fish? The answer to these questions can put you at the top (or bottom) of the blackmouth food chain. Hopefully you got some downrigger balls in your Christmas stocking along with some coal to burn for warmth. Fishing for winter Chinook is mostly done deep with downriggers. This can mean losing balls as you occasionally bounce bottom. Rubber snubbers like those offered by Silver Horde can save you from losing gear. The snubbers will stretch and bounce, possibly giving you that little extra forgiveness that can keep you from getting snagged on a rocky bottom. Stock up on extra gear just in case. You’ll catch the most fish by trolling aggressively near the bottom. Make sure your downriggers are operating well and they have good cable or braid spooled up and ready to go. These are the workhorse tools of the blackmouth trade. As far as terminal tackle, I like to keep it simple. These resident Chinook are on the feed. They’ll hit most of what moves down in the depths. I like to fish spoons and hootchies with some glow to them. Bait also works great in a helmet. These offerings produce best when trolled behind an 11” flasher. The flasher mimics a feeding salmon, and the blackmouth come running to see what their rotating buddy is up to. I follow a simple rule of 3’ of leader for a hootchie, 4’ for a spoon, and 5’ for bait in a helmet tied to the flasher. The main secret of success is not so much what you’re using, but where you’re using it. Put any of these offerings in front of a hungry feeder Chinook and they will bite. They’re not overthinking it, and neither should you. Concentrate on fishing effectively where the fish are. This will consistently put you on top of the docks… or the leaderboard! Speaking of leaderboard, blackmouth time means tournament time, big money, and bad weather. Since the days of the old Rosario Derby, hardcore fishermen with time on their hands during the winter like to make it interesting with dollars on the line and a little friendly competition. First up is the Resurrection Derby out of Anacortes January 6 and 7. Continued on Page 110

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

New Year, New Agendas I was recently reminded of one of my favorite Dale Carnegie quotes: “When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.” I couldn’t have said it better myself. This quote is especially true of lawmakers. On one hand, it is tempting to idealize the system of government we have. On the other hand, let’s face it: those with the better access to decision-makers get heard, and those who don’t have access are left griping that our system is broken. To that, I say that I’m not sure our system is broken. Without professionals dedicated to advancing legislative agendas, sure chaos would reign. I know, it’s easy to think that nothing ever gets done at the federal or state levels, but as you know by now, the legislative process is slow and methodical, and that’s a good thing. Let’s shift our focus to Olympia. When it comes to getting it done in Olympia, let’s first take a look back and then a look forward at the top legislative priorities of the boating industry and boating groups. First, a big win for the marine trades occurred in 2017. The Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA), as part of a larger coalition, secured over $500 million in new funding for career and technical education. Thanks to Rep. Gael Tarleton (D-Ballard) and members from both parties, vocational education is now part of Washington state’s basic education, which means that the legislature must fully fund this program now and in the future. More trumpeting from the bow about the win needs to occur! Okay, moving forward, did you know that last year was the first year in Washington history that our state’s elected representatives could not agree on a capital budget? Normally, this budget (which pays for the bricks-and-mortar projects around the state) passes unanimously. Not so in 2017. This impasse negatively affects boating and here’s why: there is about $17 million tied up in boating operations around the state that are not getting funded because there’s no capital budget. Plus, this framework outlines about $2 million worth of funding for bigger boating projects. Lastly, I know we hear a lot about pumpouts in this column. About $2.6 million worth of funding for pumpouts are lost when we don’t have a capital budget. The other priority for boating in 2018 is changing the law around the boat paint. For some context, the current law on the books phases out all copper-bottom paint by 2020 for recreational boats up to 65’. The boating industry and the Department of Ecology have independently arrived at the conclusion that this ban might cause more harm than benefit. The legislation that awaits lawmakers when they get back to business on January 8 will move the phase-out to 2021.

In the meantime (and this is the important part), other approaches to get rid of this biocide will be examined. Had I not procrastinated on this column (hey, I’m a perfectionist!), I would have totally missed a critically important decision made by the Washington State Department of Fish & Wildlife. As Northwest Yachting goes to print with this issue, the details are still dripping out of an agreement between the tribes and Washington. Let’s just say it’s multidimensional (we’re talking about treaties between federal governments: the tribes, Canada, and United States), it’s complex (Chinook salmon are listed on the Endangered Species list), and important (over half of the recreational boats are used for fishing). It’s too early to know exactly the implications of this agreement, but if a recent meeting with the Director of Fish & Wildlife was any indication, consider this material for a future column. Okay, one more issue and that’s it for 2017. No stranger to this column is the topic of the National Electrical Code, stray current, and electro-shock drowning. Working with marinas, boating safety experts, federal trade associations, and my friends at the Recreational Boating Association of Washington, I was pleased enough with a proposal that brings a rational approach to this important issue. I’m confident in our case and by the next issue, we will have heard back. If legislators are creatures of three-quarters emotion and onequarter logic, then it’s been my experience that agency staff are just the opposite. 2006 Cruisers Yachts 420 Express Twin Volvo diesels, AC-Heat, Genset, Nice! $199,000

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Healthy Eating for the New Year, You Deserve It! The beginning of January is tough for those of us trying to lose weight as a New Year’s resolution. There is the ride down the backside of December that culminates in parties, football watching, celebrations, cookie eating, more parties, fun, over-eating, and too many cocktails. For the New Year, don’t say “diet,” just endeavor to eat better. I have my favorite go-to strategies that help me immediately see results. The main thing is to not call any of this a “diet,” call it an “austerity plan.” Cut out sugar. All of it, including the fake stuff. Stop drinking sugary sodas and diet sodas, all are bad for you and the diet sodas trick your brain into craving more sugary items and alters your metabolism. If you are addicted, then wean yourself off, replacing with plain sparkling soda with a splash of real fruit juice, or better yet, kombucha, which is naturally sparkling, lightly sweetened, and made with tea. If you must have something sweet, buy some good dark chocolate (lower in sugar) in small, individual packages, and have one. If you break down and start mowing down a package of Milano cookies, endeavor to do better. Look for all the hidden sugars on the labels, but if you are removing packaged foods, the sugar will disappear. Prepare. Bring food and snacks for the day, make them in advance and have them with you. I keep different nuts in the car, and small protein bars low in carbohydrates and sugar. I will have my smoothie in the morning if I am on the go, and bring some type of crunchy salad with tuna or chicken on top for lunch. On Sundays, prepare a few items that you can use throughout the week: cooked sweet potatoes, quinoa, grilled chicken breasts, diced roast beef, boiled beets, or carrots. Assembling grain bowls or salad is fast and fun, and depending on the ingredients, can be sizable and filling. If salads aren’t your thing, make some hearty and delicious soups. Structure your mealtimes and water consumption so that the bigger meals of the day are at breakfast and lunch, then have a light dinner. Health specialists say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Your body will be in a much better place the next day. Minimize the drinking and cocktails. Treat drinking as an extracurricular weekend activity. When we were kids, ice cream and cake was a treat that we had on the weekends, and the same should hold true for booze. Drinks contain a ton of carbohydrates, and are high on the glycemic index and calorie chart. If you are going to drink, then dinner needs to be smaller and no dessert. Two glasses of wine with dinner? That equals close to a quarter of your daily calories. Lately, I have taken to cutting my cocktail mixers with a splash of flavored soda waters. Having a gin and tonic? Cut the drink with some grapefruit soda water, delicious! Same for margaritas, or just go to a spirit you like without all the flavored soda and the calories will be half. Add extra lime or lemon for flavor, or find tasty bitters to add for flavor.

Write everything down. Use an app on your phone, or carry a pad. You can’t shove anything in your mouth unless the pad is nearby. As I would start to eat something, I would have to stop myself in order to figure out where the “damn” notebook was, and by the time I found it I had realized I didn’t really need it. The act of writing down what you eat, and looking up the calories, is mind blowing. Coconut cake you say…yum, love it! My favorite… try 800 to 1,000 calories for one of our “American”-sized slices. Yikes! Write it down. Eat mostly plants, lots of them, while trying to avoid plantbased starches. The lower the glycemic index of the vegetables, the more you can have. Some are more satisfying than others, so if you really feel like potatoes, then go for it, but cut the fat that you are piling on top and counter with some sautéed kale. You don’t like vegetables? Then you need to work on that and start to love them. You will be amazed with the results. Become informed and find foods that you do love and start with those. You will be surprised at how your body responds. Go organic, or do the best you can. The big agricultural companies are very liberal with the sprays, fertilizers, desiccants, and genetic engineering, so much so that it is starting to affect our digestion, which ultimately affects our stomach, skin, gut, brain, etc. Buy local and organic, or at the very least “natural.” If the farmer is taking care of his fields with proper rotation, then the chemicals aren’t needed, and we consume a better product. Quit buying all that packaged garbage and buy organic. Put your money where your mouth is and help your body at the same time. Try to stick to the outside aisles of the store. Try to buy foods with five ingredients or less, and if you can’t understand or pronounce the words on the label, then don’t buy it, or better yet, don’t eat it. I could go on and on, truly. It wasn’t until I had a pretty severe health issue that I woke up to my diet and what I was eating. I had some help and it has been a good ten-year journey (and I am a chef!!). I have learned some amazing things along the way, dropped pounds, reduced my blood sugar, and started to sleep like a kid again. Try it! Give this thing a shot. It is not a diet, it is a life plan. Good luck, and if you see me on the street, let me know how it is going! Cheers to 2018!

My family didn’t own boats when I was younger, but we went to the Seattle Boat Show. I was never sure why my dad dragged me down to the Kingdome to look at boats and fill a goody bag with trinkets and coupons, but we went. Every year. Looking back, it may be those trips to the boat show that started my love affair with sailing and the fantasy of someday being out on the water in a boat of my own. The Seattle Boat Show is the largest

M

such show on the West Coast, and is easily one of the best in the country. With the announcement of Bell Harbor as a third location and the addition of hundreds more boats and exhibitors, there will be even more to do and see at this year ’s event January 26 to February 3. This is great for those of us who look forward to the show as soon as the first dark clouds of autumn roll into town. It also creates a problem: how do you get the most out of this huge show? I’ve

the vendors and demonstrations. Check out the schedule of events on the show’s website and mark your calendar. Weekdays are the least crowded, of course, but don’t shy away from the weekend if that’s when you can go. Whatever works out, go whenever you can commit the most time to the event. You need at least a full day to see everything, and multiple days are highly recommended if you can pull it off. When choosing which days to attend, be honest about why you’re going in the first place. If you just want to wander and dream about your next boat purchase, you can hit the show any time. Maybe take advantage of the Ales and Sails event on February 2, when brewers from around the region feature their beers that you can sip on as you stroll among the yachts. It’s hard to go wrong when you combine beautiful new boats and craft beer. A $45 ticket gets you into the show, access to the tasting, six pours, and a souvenir glass to keep onboard. Wine lovers should attend opening day, which also happens to be the night of the Uncorked event. Similar to the Ales and Sails, this opening night tradition is a wonderful introduction to the show with local wines. If you are in search of expertise and want to make some purchases, plan to be there during the week and first thing in the morning. This guarantees more time with vendors in a relaxed atmosphere. Most importantly, make time to hit the show twice during its run. I know not everyone can get away from work, but if you have a schedule flexible enough to do so, carve out two weekdays for your visits. I like to spend a day at the beginning of the event and one near the end. On my first visit, I wander about, make note of products that I am interested in, and generally get a feel of the show. Having more than one day at the

show ensures viewing everything you want to see without being a hurry.

DRESS FOR SUCCESS It’s Seattle. It’s winter. Much of the show is outdoors on the water. You don’t need to wear your offshore foul weather gear (actually, please don’t), but be prepared for the weather forecast. And wear deck shoes. Many of the boats at the South Lake Union and Bell Harbor locations are privately owned, and you want to respect the owners. Don’t overdress, though. When you get inside at the CenturyLink location, you don’t want to be lugging around heavy jackets. Alternatively, if you adhere to my rule of spending at least two separate days at the show, plan one for the outdoor locations and one for the indoor exhibits.

MAKE A PLAN As wonderful as it is to simply wander among the boats and vendors waiting for something new and interesting to catch your eye, you will see more of what you are after if you do a little planning. The redesigned Seattle Boat Show website has constantly updated lists of seminars, exhibitions, vendors, and special events. Put the seminars you want to see in your smartphone calendar so you don’t miss anything. Plan your parking and transportation as well. With the addition of Bell Harbor this year, there will be free parking available at the Bell Street Pier Garage. Shuttles will move attendees between the three locations, so park where it is most convenient for you and use public transportation to make sure you get to each venue during your visit. My tip on transportation and parking is this: if you aren’t planning to buy a lot of merchandise, park off-site and ride the train into King Station. Or do what Continued on Page 74

we’ve done in the past: reserve a night at a downtown marina like Elliott Bay, stay onboard, and take a cab or rideshare into the event. No matter what else you do, buy your tickets online before the show. This year an online ticket comes with additional perks like free parking, a coupon for a one-hour kayak, SUP, bike, or skate rental from Mountain to Sound Outfitters, a complimentary order of french fries or seared green beans at Quality Athletics, $10 Gift Certificate per order to Chandler’s Crabhouse and Daniel’s Broiler, and more.

SHOP We save many of our big purchases for the show, hoping to make the most of the deep show discounts and the expertise of brand representatives.

Last year we used the boat show as our opportunity to upgrade the electronics on our new (to us) 34’ trawler. Being able to talk directly with someone who knew the ins and outs of the product, interface, and installation was invaluable. They had installed equipment on boats like ours before. We got a good price and had the representative’s business card in our back pocket in case we had questions later. You simply don’t get that when you order online or even from a local shop. You can also use your purchasing power to your advantage at the show. When I was refitting our old sloop, I knew I was going to be spending a big chunk of money on an engine, electronics, and sails. When vendors know you are a serious buyer, they will spend time with you and work with you to get the

best deal possible. And little things add up. The electronics suite I installed required specialty wiring and connectors, all of which they threw in for me. If I had purchased the suite on my own, I would have paid for every single little part. A similar thing happened with the new diesel engine that I put a down payment on at the show. Small upgrades, wiring harnesses, and plumbing fittings were thrown in because I was working directly with the experts. That year I saved at least 25 percent on things I was going to have to purchase anyway. The boat show saved my budget. Don’t be afraid to negotiate and haggle. Don’t be afraid to ask for free swag. Also, don’t expect every vendor or shop to give things away for free, but if you see that there are trinkets or giveaways at a booth, stroll up and ask what it takes to get what they are giving away. If you lay down your credit card for thousands of dollars in chart plotters and radios, it isn’t unreasonable to ask if you can have a hat or T-shirt. If you are shopping for big ticket items, part of what you are doing at the show is creating relationships. The women and men who represent the products you are buying are experts, and perhaps the greatest benefit of boat show shopping is having access to these experts going forward. When I was installing the diesel engine I purchased at the boat show, I called the lead mechanic for the company as I worked through the more technical aspects of the job. Invaluable. He even sent a rep out to help me, free of charge. If you are using the show to complete a project onboard, come prepared. Bring a shopping list. Carry a list of dimensions, sizes, colors, and other information you might need when making large purchases. This keeps you on task and helps make sure you are getting everything you need. Load up your phone with photos of your project as well. This makes explaining projects or choosing equipment even more efficient. Near the end of the show, some discounts get deeper and the giveaways get a little more aggressive. Anyone who has worked a trade show of any kind knows that vendors would rather unload their remaining merchandise than pack up and ship it home.

STAY THE NIGHT For many people, getting downtown is a hassle. Traffic and parking can be stressful, and there is often pressure to get the most out of a small time window. The Seattle Boat Show partners with several local hotels who offer discounts for attendees. Continued on Page 76

Staying downtown for the show allows you to take advantage of multiple visits. You can even sneak back to the room to rest and recharge between visits to the three locations. Perhaps best of all, staying overnight downtown creates an opportunity to make the experience more appealing to a reluctant first mate. A day at the show, dinner downtown, and a hotel stay? That is a heck of a date night. Check the Seattle Boat Show website for details on hotel partners. I can’t recommend this strategy enough. The hidden bonus is that most of the retailers, vendors, and exhibitioners stay in town at the same hotels, so you might get some “bonus” time with industry experts.

TAKE THE CREW This year ’s Kids Aqua Zone will have plenty of fun activities for the junior crew, and sharing the boating experience with the little ones is a good way to ensure you will have crew for the coming years. When my kids were little, I loved watching them explore the new yachts on display. They would imagine themselves living aboard and stand at the helm to pretend they were navigating the high seas. As we walked away from every boat, they would beg me to buy one. I had to admit, I was always easily sucked into their fantasies. The show is a safe, fun environment for kids. Many vendors give away trinkets and samples, and kids treat each booth like a nautical trick-or-treat adventure. If your junior crew is up to the challenge, devise a scavenger hunt for them and set them off in search of treasure. The show is big, so be sure they are comfortable and know where to meet you when they are done. Pro tip: a set of cheap two-way radios work great at the indoor show. You can stay in touch with your young ones as they explore the show on their own. If you are shopping for a new boat, you need to take the whole team with you. Get everyone onboard a few boats. Try out the space. Think about cabin layouts and sleeping arrangements. Especially on smaller boats, it really helps to have the whole tribe aboard to see how the boat might work for you on the water. And speaking of being on the water, make sure to get out to the docks at South Lake Union and Bell Harbor with the family. Even moored to the dock, there is something more “real” about being aboard on the water. If you are porting little ones with you, bring their life jackets to keep them safe on the docks and

onboard the yachts. There are always loaner PFDs available as well.

...OR GO IT ALONE Your family and friends are great. They might even be good crew. And yes, there are a lot of things for the kids to do at the show. However, if you are on a mission at the show, nothing beats a solo trip. Take the family on one day and then come back on your own for a more focused show experience. Navigating the show alone gives you total freedom to explore, linger, relax, and shop. You can circle back and take your time. You don’t have to worry if your crew is bored with your obsession with the new fishing gear.

DO EVERYTHING Enter every drawing. Sign up for every mailing list. Take every free giveaway. Marinas give away free nights. Boat yards raffle off haul outs. Years ago, we opened an email account just for boating-related communication. This is the email we give to people we meet at marinas and anchorages around the Northwest. It is the email we use when we buy products online or sign into boating user groups. Give everyone at the show your “boating” email address. This way you can enter all of the drawings and sweepstakes, get all the advertising blasts, and keep it all separate from more tedious communications, like from your boss. If you don’t already have one, consider making up a business card with your name, email, and boat information to hand out to people you meet. We keep a stack of these cards onboard, and I carry them with me to events like the boat show. Finally, if you have recently bought or sold a boat, done a big refit, or spent any time with a shop or mechanic, ask them about their connection to the show. Your marina likely has a booth where you could spend a few hours handing out information in exchange for free entry. Brokers and shops have comp tickets to give away to their customers.

COME SEE US! Whatever your boat show plans, please make time to swing by the Northwest Yachting booth (East 614!). We’d love to say hello, hear your feedback, and share our latest issue of the magazine. Greg Van Belle grew up sailing, cruising, and fishing Puget Sound.

R2AK 2016’s Team Bad Kitty heading north (photo by Liv von Oelreich)

LOOKING AT R2AK 2018 FROM WITHIN Northwest Yachting and Wright Yachts are teaming up to compete in the infamous 750-nautical mile adventure race from Port Townsend to Ketchikan. Unsupported and engineless, Team Wright Yachts chases adventure and glory! The starting line of the Race to Alaska (R2AK) 2017 is blanketed by what I like to call a total “gray out,” a soup-like weather phenomenon where fog and water blend together into a gray stillness so complete that it can be hard to know which way is up. I stand on the flybridge of the media boat where I nurse a cup of courtesy coffee and double check my camera lenses before the starting gun at 05:00 hours. The winds tore through Port Townsend the night before, over 30 knots they say, yet this morning is

calm with glasslike conditions. The wind is supposed to pick up later, and with a day of crossing the Strait of Juan de Fuca unfolding before the racers, I feel anxious even though I don’t have my hide on the line. I’m just a writer on assignment with Northwest Yachting magazine. The loosely assembled racers, from the paddleboarders to the performance multihulls, look less like a hardened pre-race fleet and more like a parade of odd experiments born from a maritime collaboration of Pinocchio’s creator Gep-


TEAM WRIGHT YACHTS

SCOTT WALLINGFORD Ever since I first set sail on the family’s Catalina 30 as a kid in southern California, I’ve wanted to do something like this! For years I’ve been working as a marine mechanic and now a yacht broker. Now we’re going for the gold, and no matter what, we’re going to have a lot of fun. AGE: 34 OCCUPATION: YACHT BROKER EXPERIENCE: SAILOR, NORWEGIAN CELEBRITY, MARINE MECHANIC

petto and Leonardo da Vinci. Monohulls feature pairs of home-installed threshing oars that, under other circumstances, would merit double, even triple, takes. Team North2Alaska, sailing a self-built aluminum Maryland fishing sharpie made by an Alaskan commercial fishing family, tanks a stagnant course as it waits to begin, while a small collection of paddleboards cluster. San Juan Island local Karl Kruger of Team Heart of Gold is among them. He is about to make R2AK history as the first to paddleboard the entire 750 nautical miles to Ketchikan. He accomplishes this superhuman feat by consuming specially made nutritional wafers every 20 minutes. I eat a complimentary doughnut aboard the media yacht. Mmm, maple bar! Boom! The starting cannon of the Northwest Maritime Center reports from shore, and the racers are off - as much as they can be without wind to work with. The paddlers may have their day yet, and even begin to take the lead to the demoralization of the performance multihulls. From shore, hundreds of onlookers packed onto the boardwalk cheer as the Soviet-era Russian choir music rolls over the water from loudspeakers per R2AK tradition, extolling the glory of a defunct Motherland. The media boat plies the water effortlessly as I snap shots of the scene. The music and festivities fade as we leave the starting line behind, and the only sounds beyond the media boat’s engines and my camera clicks are those of paddles and the occasional banging of limp rigging. The fun is over, and the “fun” begins. I want to do it. I resolve inwardly, at once disdainful of my media yacht comforts and the promise of a warm bed awaiting me ashore. The maple bar turns sour in my mouth, the onboard heating, loathsome! But how? Flash forward to today, and I’m preparing - physically, mentally, intellectually, spiritually - as a member of Team Wright Yachts, an alliance between brokerage Wright Yachts, Northwest Yachting magazine, and Corsair Marine International for the 2018 race. What was that saying grandpa was fond of? Be careful

what you wish for? I should have been taking notes…

R2AK 101 For the uninitiated, the R2AK (Race to Alaska) has emerged as one of the world’s most notorious adventure races. Organized by the hipsters of boating who call the Northwest Maritime Center of Port Townsend home, race organizer Jake Beattie and race boss Daniel Evans have been key personalities to the R2AK’s continued success since the race’s inception over beers. “The idea crystallized at the 2014 Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend. There was a group of us sitting around in the beer garden and the conversation centered around how we get people on the water without engines and with sails came up,” Beattie told me in an interview before the 2016 race (that I also covered from the sidelines in our June 2016 issue as a feature, R2AK: Race or Revolution?). The philosophical foundation of what was to become R2AK

was to challenge the rule heavy, big money, corporate way of doing things that Beattie and company perceived as dominating the sailboat racing world. The idea was to inspire greatness in the lay-sailor versus glorifying the haves over the have-nots. Where few of us watch the America’s Cup and think that they can participate, R2AK is meant to get sailors off their couches and onto the wild, glorious blue. The race’s ban on resupplying and engines is also meant to bring seamanship back to its roots, away from the blinking screens, automation, and leisure cruising of the 21st Century. Yachting, this ain’t. Beattie, Evans, and company schemed up the current two-leg, 750-nautical mile R2AK route from Port Townsend to Ketchikan. The first 40-nautical mile leg from Port Townsend to Victoria, B.C. across the Strait of Juan de Fuca is no joke. The exposed, often hellish, stretch of water is meant to wash out teams while they are still within easy recovery distance, and purposefully serves as a filter fairer than

any formalized equipment list to keep unprepared teams safe from truly dangerous situations hundreds of miles from help. The first leg can also be raced on its own to give sailors who want a taste of the glory, but who don’t want to or can’t do the whole thing, a seat at the racer’s table. Racers who make it to Victoria are rewarded with a festive evening and a free preparation day before taking on the 710-nautical mile stretch to Ketchikan. Obstacles like Seymour Narrows, with its jaw-dropping tide swing of 18 knots, litter the route as do the much talked about freight ships and grizzly bears. At the end of it all, a $10,000 prize nailed to a piece of wood awaits the first-place team. Second place? A pair of infamous steak knives. Another rule instituted in 2017 was that each finisher is offered $10,000 for their boat, a tempting trade for the classic R2AK dirtbag badass who embraced the spirit of the race to complete it aboard some kind of marvelous homemade kiteboard/ peddle/swan boat contraption made of milk cartons. But R2AK is not just about first place. It also features a swath of coveted awards, like the prestigious Dirt Bag Award

for the finisher with the cheapest boat; that being the true goal of many participants. “Some of the best stories come from those who stick it out in a boat they pulled out of the blackberries bushes and fixed up,” says Daniel Evans. “Every finisher is a winner when it comes to this race.” With a reported completion rate of less than 40 percent, Evans’ sentiment is appropriate. While the 2016 record still stands at three days, 20 hours, and 13 minutes by

Team MAD Dog Racing (aboard a Marstrom M32 sailing catamaran), the many kayaks, rowboats, paddleboarders, and others often grabbed the spotlight away from the fast boats with harrowing stories such as making camp ashore to weather storms in Swiss Family Robinson-esque experiences. The first iteration of the race in 2015 gained international fame as racers and press from all over the world flocked to participate and watch. The upcoming 2018 race will be the fourth iteration, and buzz around whether the 2016 speed record will fall, and what other epic firsts await, is ubiquitous in boat nerd circles.

CORSAIR 970 SPORT

A TALE OF TWO “NORWEGIANS”

The Corsair 970 Sport is an evolution of the Corsair 31(C31), and is a performance trimaran that’s built to both zip around the race course and take on the wildest horizons. With more interior space and functional tweaks to the rigging and layout, the 970 is touted by the manufacturer to have the performance of the C31 with the comforts of the larger C37. Not only that, but the boat’s patented folding system puts the boat onto a trailer for marina-less storage and increased versatility.

The beginnings of Team Wright Yachts came about over beers, not unlike the seed of the idea that would lead to R2AK’s creation. Yacht broker Scott Wallingford and I met for the first time at Hattie’s Hat in Ballard to reminisce over a Norwegian reality TV show we had both “starred” in, Alt for Norge. The show takes 12 Americans of Norwegian decent who’ve never been to Norway before and pits them in elimination-style cultural challenges for the grand prize: to meet one’s estranged Norwegian relatives. Turns out, we both lived in Seattle and wanted to story swap about the experience. “We joke around that Norris is the ‘boat guy’ from Season 5, and I’m the ‘boat guy’ from Season 6,” says Wallingford. “I guess it’s a popular trope over there. Vikings and all.” With an estimated viewership of over 500,000 (about a tenth of Norway’s population) and annually awarded the Gulruten Award (aka Norwegian Emmy, “Nemmy”) for best Reality TV Show, Alt for Norge is recruiting for Season 9 at the time of this writing. Wallingford and I would remain good friends, initially bonding over a Norwegian Continued on Page 82

reality TV show and ultimately over a love of boats and sailing. He a broker and I Northwest Yachting magazine’s managing editor and was a liveaboard at the time. R2AK was on both our bucket lists, and from then on always managed to worm its way into conversation when boats and beer were combined.

I am looking forward to sailing with a great group of people and pushing the boundaries! The uncertainty of what lies between Victoria and Alaska is what fuels my fire, and I will not rest until we step onto the dock in Ketchikan!

A FATEFUL SAIL WITH ROB Wallingford ultimately ended up working with Rob Wright of Wright Yacht Sales, a small brokerage with a Shilshole Bay Marina office. He wasn’t working long for the brokerage before I was invited on a fateful sail with not only Rob Wright, but Australian Richard Ward, the owner and designer of Seawind sailing catamarans whose company had recently acquired Corsair Marine International. I excited for a great day of sailing, but a surprise awaited me at the dock. “Katie?!” I blurted as I stepped aboard to behold none other than NOAA Corps Officer and one of my marine science college peers from Eckerd College in Florida, Kathryn Richwine. Since graduation, she has been cutting her nautical teeth at sea for the last two years deployed aboard the NOAA Ship Fairweather above the Arctic Circle. Now a full-fledged mariner with stories to back it up, I certainly didn’t expect to see her aboard. “Norris?!” She laughed. “What are the odds?” I’m still crunching the numbers on that one. She introduced me to Li Sung, a not-active-duty Navy Commander who is a partner with Rob Wright’s chartering company aboard the Seawind 1160 catamaran Amelia (that we sailed that day) while attending the University of Washington for his PhD in Ocean Engineering. Turns out, Sung is an active member of the university’s human-powered submarine team, he is a sort of human-powered inventor genius.

What became a fantastic reunion sail with Rob Wright, Richard Ward, Li Sung, and Kathryn Richwine turned fateful as R2AK once again entered the conversation after a few *responsible* beers were consumed. We parted ways, but it wasn’t long before I got the text from Wallingford: “It’s happening dude. R u in?”

WANTED: AN ABLE SHIP Team Wright Yachts took form: Officer Richwine the Arctic explorer, Li Sung the Navy Commander and mechanical genius submariner/budding professor, and the two Norwegian sailor TV personalities. But we needed a boat, and Rob Wright and Richard Ward delivered. In a move that also showcases one of Corsair Marine International’s newer builds, Wright Yachts secured a Corsair 970 Sport for our use in the race. “Richard Ward and I had been talking about ways to grow Corsair in the Pacific Northwest, so the timing of it all is just too perfect,” says Rob Wright. The 970 is an evolution of the Corsair 31 (C31), a similar boat to 2017’s secondplace Team Big Broderna’s Corsair F31R. The four-crew team lost their first-place position by a mere six minutes to Team Pure & Wild/Freeburd, a three-crew team aboard 8.5 trimaran, who passed them on the home stretch. The C31 has also been the boat of choice for a highly publicized Arctic adventure

during which legendary Norwegian sailors and explorers Børge Ousland and Thorleif Thorleifson transited both the infamous Northwest and Northeast Passages of the Arctic in a single season. “The Corsair 970 Sport is the kind of boat that’s been proven to perform in this race during years past,” said Rob Wright. The manufacturer touts the 970 as having 15% more interior space, a more functional extended cockpit, aft deck mainsheet track, and high-volume floats for increased stability compared to the C31. Like the C31 before it, the 970 features a retractable daggerboard design, and is completely trailerable with the patented folding system.

WHAT NOW? Now that Team Wright Yachts has the basics covered, namely crew and boat, the real challenge has begun. As the team members officially register and fall into their perspective roles, preparation becomes the name of the game. “It’s exciting!” says Michelle GibbonZeasman, owner and publisher of Northwest Yachting magazine. “If we lose our managing editor, I’ll cry… but if he comes back with those damned second-place steak knives, I’m cutting off all his toes with them!” Gibbon-Zeasman and Wright are spearheading the managerial side of Team Wright Yachts to do what they can to supContinued on Page 84

The team is planning to go in person to check it out, and be able to say, “back in ‘Nam,” in casual conversation. “I’m looking forward to that final round of Q and A at the factory,” says Rob Wright, who is shepherding the racing machine from drawing board to Ketchikan. “The trip should be awesome!” Come June 14, I will once again hear the cannon of the Northwest Maritime Center of Port Townsend that marks the start of R2AK.

HIGH STAKES MARIJUANA ON THE WATER

Widespread recreational marijuana use in the PaciямБc Northwest is no secret, but what does that mean for our boaters? BY BILL DEVOE, ATTORNEY AT LAW

86 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JANUARY 2018


As a responsible boater, you should be familiar with the laws involving marijuana usage to know what risks you are exposed to as a boater or, more significantly, as a boat owner. For example, even if you do not use, there is a high likelihood at some point that one of your guest or invitees will bring—legally under Washington state law—marijuana onto your boat. That guest or invitee will be placing you at some risk, especially if your boat is boarded and searched by the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG).

F

State Law vs. Federal Law Public opinion on recreational use of marijuana has shifted substantially. According to a 2017 Gallup poll, 64 percent of Americans think marijuana should be legalized for recreational use. Washington is one of eight states, including Alaska, California, Colorado, Massachusetts, Maine, Nevada, and Oregon, as well as the District of Columbia, that have legalized certain recreational uses of marijuana. There are more states that may decide to legalize the recreational use of marijuana, most likely the Western states of Arizona and Montana. If you are on the waters of Washington or Oregon, you are in a state that has legalized recreational and medical use of marijuana. However, if you are on a boat on the navigable waters of the United States, you are exposing yourself to a violation of federal law and the resulting penalties for that violation. The conflicting powers of state vs. federal law is a source of confusion regarding recreational marijuana use. Small amounts of marijuana aboard that is legal under state law is generally left to the state enforcement authorities to regulate, and that legal use is not a federal enforcement priority. To understand the rights and risks of using marijuana as a boater , you must comprehend the state law in which you are boating and the current federal law.

THE WASHINGTON WAY Washington recreational use law is a good example of state powers at play, and the law of other states that have le-

galized marijuana are similar with some variations. In Washington, only adults age 21 years and older can purchase and possess up to one ounce of useable marijuana (the bud), 16 ounces of marijuana infused edibles in solid form, 72 ounces in liquid form, or seven grams of marijuana concentrates. Selling and buying marijuana is strictly regulated in Washington. It can only be sold and purchased at statelicensed retail stores. A valid photo ID is always required and no one under 21 is allowed on a retail premises. It remains a felony for anyone not a licensed retailer to sell or provide marijuana to anyone else. Providing or selling marijuana to a minor under the age of 18 can result in up to ten years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.

THE WASHINGTON BOATER The many variables at play with regards to marijuana usage are compounded aboard. It is illegal to consume marijuana in view of the public, and it is illegal to operate a vessel under the influence of marijuana if you have concentration of five nanograms (ng) or more of active THC (the main psychoactive chemical in cannabis is delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol, commonly known as THC) per milliliter of blood (5 ng/ml). The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board recommends waiting five hours before operating a vehicle, and the

recommendation would be the same for operating a boat. The recommended wait time would be longer after consuming edible marijuana products. Operating a boat under the influence of marijuana is a gross misdemeanor and could result in jail time of almost a year and a $5,000 fine. When an operator of a vessel is arrested for operating under the influence of marijuana, the vessel can be impounded, possibly triggering a lengthy and costly procedure. Finally, taking marijuana outside the state of Washington (for example, taking marijuana to the nearby inland waters of Idaho, a non-recreational using state) is illegal at all levels of government and could result in significant penalties. If you are caught using marijuana illegally by Washington authorities, you might receive a ticket or citation and pay a fine. The penalties increase if you are caught selling to people under the age of 21, and growing, buying, and/or selling without a state license.

The FedS Federal law differs from Washington law concerning the recreational use of marijuana, and Washington law does not preempt federal law. Anti-use federal and pro-use state laws appear to be going in different directions under the current federal Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The production, distribution, sale, possession, and use of marijuana are still prohibited

If you haven’t kept up with the proliferation of marijuana dispensaries and the products, you might be surprised at the astounding array of items made with marijuana, including chocolates, candies, and even drops and sodas. If you or your guests step aboard with these items, you’ll need to be aware of how the law views them.

Canada has marijuana-friendly laws, but don’t venture to Canada with any marijuana products on your boat. Washington state law prohibits transporting marijuana to Canada even if legally possessed in Washington.

under federal law and may be prosecuted under the law of the United States. Recreational use is illegal under federal law everywhere in the United States, but your risk in the state of Washington will be greater on the navigable waters of the United States, including inland rivers, national parks, and national forests, because of federal jurisdiction and authority in those areas. Tribal lands may also have different policies concerning the use of marijuana and its possession. The federal government regulates drugs through the Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. § 811), which does not recognize the difference between the medical and recreational uses of marijuana. These laws are generally applied only against persons who possess, cultivate, and/or distribute large quantities of marijuana. Under federal law, marijuana is treated like other controlled substances, such as cocaine and heroin. The federal government places every controlled substance in a schedule, according to its relative potential for abuse and medicinal value. Under the CSA, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, which means that the federal government views marijuana as

highly addictive and having no medical value. Doctors may not legally “prescribe” marijuana for medical use under federal law, though they can “recommend” its use under the First Amendment. As recently as November 2017, Attorney General Sessions indicated there might be a shift toward more vigilant enforcement of the current federal marijuana laws. Under the previous administration, there was a directive, laid out in the Cole Memorandum, that adopted the approach of deferring to the state law regarding lower level marijuana enforcement. Sessions recently said, “It’s my view that the use of marijuana is detrimental, and we should not give encouragement in any way to it, and it represents a federal violation, which is in the law and it’s subject to being enforced, and our priorities will have to be focused on all the things and challenges we face.” He added, “We’ll

Marijuana Legalization Timeline 1996: California becomes the first state to legalize medical marijuana use. This is the first example of marijuana legalization in the United States. 1998: Alaska, Oregon, and Washington become the next states to legalize medical marijuana. 1999-Present Day: States continue to legalize medical marijuana. At the time of this writing, a total of 29 states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana use. 2012: Colorado and Washington become the first states to legalize recreational use of marijuana. 2014: Alaska, Oregon, and the District of Columbia also legalize recreational use. 2016: California, Maine, Massachusetts, and Nevada legalize recreational use. At the time of this writing, this brings up the number of recreational use states to eight plus the District of Columbia. 2016-2017: States have continued to legalize medical marijuana with the latest being Arkansas, Florida, North Dakota, Ohio, and Pennsylvania in 2016. Most recently, West Virginia joined the medical use states in 2017.

be working our way through to a rational policy. But I don’t want to suggest in any way that this department believes that marijuana is harmless and people should not avoid it.”

GRAY AREA The U.S. Attorney’s office in Western Washington and federal law enforcement are still guided by the Cole Memorandum, which has not been replaced. This memorandum was prepared in August 2013 by the Office of the Deputy Attorney General at the Department of Justice, and was intended to give guidance to all United States attorneys regarding marijuana enforcement, mainly in states with legalized marijuana. The memorandum establishes or recognizes certain enforcement priorities that are particularly important for the federal government. The memorandum recognizes that the Department of Justice has not historically focused resources toward prosecuting people who possess and use small amounts of marijuana on private property. It also recognized that the federal government will leave the lower level enforcement to local authorities unless the marijuana activities threaten harm to the federal enforcement priorities. While reserving complete prosecutorial discretion, the memorandum provides that state enforcement would remain the primary means of addressing marijuanarelated activities in those states such as Washington that have enacted laws legalizing marijuana in some form and have implemented a strong and effective regulatory enforcement system. According to the directive, this means that the primary enforcement of the use of small amounts of marijuana on board a boat will likely be left to the state enforcement authorities, and that legal use under state law will not be a priority of the federal enforcement authorities.

U.S. Coast GUARD ENFORCEMENT The USCG’s position and requirements are that it enforces federal laws on fed-


erally navigable waterways of the U.S along with federal partners under the guidance of the Department of Justice. Commercial operators, operators of federally inspected vessels, and the public are required to comply with all federal laws and regulations. Under the Maritime Drug and Law Enforcement Act, the transportation of a significant amount of a controlled substance, regardless of its form, is illegal. Boating under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance in the states of Washington and Oregon is illegal and can result in an arrest and a DUI (Driving Under the Influence charge). If the USCG encounters marijuana or marijuana product in volumes larger than for personal use, it will follow the federal procedures for taking law enforcement action in cases involving controlled substances. The USCG is generally concerned with two categories of violations: illegal commercial sale of marijuana, and operating under the influence. The USCG often coordinates with law enforcement partners when marijuana is discovered in violation of federal law, and may take any of several actions, including issuance of violations or referral to the Department of Justice for prosecution, depending on circumstances. The USCG most often coordinates with state police and local authorities as appropriate, especially in cases of operator impairment. The USCG’s position is in line with the rest of the federal government; state laws have not altered federal laws prohibiting the manufacture, production, distribution, possession, or use of marijuana. Marijuana remains illegal under federal law, and the USCG will continue to enforce federal laws and regulations within its jurisdiction. Obviously, the concern and risk for recreational users aboard is the illegality under federal law and the broad authority of the USCG to board and inspect your boat. The USCG does not need probable cause to board and inspect your boat. This means that you must be prepared for a boarding at any time from both a safety and an illegal substance perspective. If you are going to possess and use marijuana on board a boat, you need to recognize this risk. You should make sure your guests understand this risk, even if you are not a marijuana user, so you and

your guest are not surprised if marijuana should be found on board the boat.

MARINAS If you are on your boat or a friend’s boat in a marina, you should give thought to what that marina’s policy is concerning the use of marijuana. Almost all marina moorage is governed by contract and rules incorporated into that contract. Most marinas in Washington have no rule against the legal use of marijuana under state law. Marinas are generally addressing marijuana like alcohol: you must obey the state law and not bother your neighbors.

CANADA As a boater in the Northwest, you need to think about the risks of taking marijuana into Canada. It is illegal under Washington law to take marijuana to Canada, even if it is legally possessed under Washington state law. If you are boating in the Pacific Northwest with legal marijuana on board, you are committing a crime if you take it into Canada. Regarding Canada, it is moving quickly toward being the second country in the world, after Uruguay, to have nationwide legalization of recreational marijuana use, with a target date of not later than July 1, 2018. It would then be like Washington state, but the entire country would be on the same page, unlike here in the U.S. where some states have legalized marijuana and others have not.

In summary, due to the legality of marijuana under Washington state law and the pervasiveness of the number of people who use marijuana products, you as a boater have some risk of federal enforcement if using marijuana. You should take reasonable steps to limit that risk and not flaunt that use in front of the USCG or other federal authorities, and take steps to inform your guests and invitees of this risk. If you are stopped for your use, and if legal under Washington law, the penalty would likely be fairly light. All boaters, as with all legal users of marijuana, should be aware of any shift in federal enforcement policy that might increase the legal risks of using marijuana while aboard. At the end of the day, you’re the captain of your vessel and you make the decisions. The feeling of freedom and autonomy are why we love boating, no? Whether you’re pro, anti, or neutral to marijuana usage, knowing the law and your rights is as important as knowing the Rules of the Road. Stay informed and continue to create fun, safe memories here in boating paradise. Bill DeVoe has practiced maritime law for over 25 years. A portion of his practice provides advice and representation on a cross-section of maritime matters. His firm, the Law Office of William DeVoe, can be reached at 206-251-1688 (williamdevoelaw.com).

Here we see docked Seattle law enforcement patrol vessels. The protocols guiding marijuana enforcement for these officers are very different than the federally controlled U.S. Coast Guard assets, who view all marijuana use as illegal abuse of a Schedule I drug. (Photo: Joe Wolf)

Washington By Northwest Yachting Editorial Staff The beginning of a new year means the dawn of your newest boating chapter! To aid you with your boating plans, we offer this updated version of our annual Washington Marina and Fuel Dock Guide. Hopefully, our research will give you a useful snapshot of the marina scene of the state, specifically in the Puget Sound region. Of course, many great marinas exist on the West Coast, along the Columbia River, and on the inland waters, but there is material enough for those regions to merit separate guides.

T

As always, we’re eager for scuttlebutt and the newest updates regarding your favorite marinas or docks you regularly visit, so please send your intel to editorial@nwyachting.com so we can keep this guide as updated as possible. In the meantime, use this guide as a supplement (not a replacement!) to your standard navigation resources. We recommend calling ahead or visiting the website of any marina you plan to visit - changes at facilities happen all year long, so it’s always wise to check. See you out on the water!

RACING SHEET

Winter Vashon: Singing in the Rain Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson The sunny days of Whidbey Island Race Week are a distant memory, and most casual observers would assume that the boats are tucked away with heaters drying the sails Not for the faint of heart, the South Sound Series takes those foolish enough to race in the winter on a beautiful tour of the waters south of Alki Point. The first race of the series took the racing fleet around Vashon Island, starting out from Tacoma Yacht Club on December 2. The course for this race is simple:

leave Vashon Island to starboard while passing outside an anchored committee boat, which has the option of being used as a shortened course mark. The forecast called for light winds and rain, and for once the computer models, unfortunately, got it exactly right. The rain began as I rode in the car heading south from Seattle, and stayed with us through the entire day. On board Charlie Macaulay’s Farr39 Absolutely, the rain did little to dampen our spirits, as it had been weeks

since the crew was all together and it was hard to get a word in among the laughter. Racing got under way with the non-flying sails class, complete with roasts in the oven, starting at 09:30 hours. The first PHRF race fleets headed out at 10:00 hours, with the bigger and faster boats bringing up the rear. As with most of the fleet, Absolutely found just enough wind to get us away from the starting line and to the opening of Colvos Passage, after which things began to get interesting.

Left to right: Crews depended heavily on their foul weather gear for the Vashon Island Race (aka Winter Vashon); the warm ferry tempts racers in low winds, heads focused up and forward to chase race-saving puffs in low winds. 102 NORTHWEST YACHTING || JANUARY 2018

Luckily, currents were in our favor most of the day, but being able to connect the dots between puffs of wind was all that separated those in front from those left adrift. It was a nonstop game of cat and mouse as fingers of wind kept leads changing and crews scrambling to not be left behind. The race committee graciously shortened the course, finishing the race at the north end of Vashon Island. The wind did leave something to be desired, but with only brief moments of absolute still-


Results: Winter Vashon 2017/South Sound #1 ness, it was just enough to keep most of us stubborn sailors out in the rain until the halfway point. Out to an early lead and nailing nearly every shift, Mike and Brad Jones onboard Sidewinder and Alex Simanis on Poke and Destroy were just barely overtaken by the big boats right before the race finished. At the end of the day, the South Sound experts onboard the 11-meter McSwoosh took home the prize for overall winner, closely followed by John Hoag onboard his recently purchased boat Chinook, and rounding out the podium were the hometown heroes on Tantivy. Staying out in front through the day, Jenny Leitzinger’s Kahuna set the bar for the big boat fleet, making every right move to stay with a pack of faster boats to correct out minutes ahead of the competition. The standings are tight across all the fleets, and will make for some interesting head-to-head racing in the remaining three races. The South Sound Series continues January 6 with the Duwamish Head Race hosted by the Three Tree Point Yacht Club out of Des Moines, Washington. This race has been a day of extremes, be that high and low winds, and even darkness as last year’s race kept the fleet on the water well after sunset. The next race of the series takes the fleet as far south as Toliva Shoals, hosted by Olympia Yacht Club on February 17. The series culminates with the Gig Harbor Island Race on March 17. Offering up the possibility of everything from sunshine to snowstorms, the South Sound Series, while not for those afraid of a bit of hardship, is an absolute fantastic tribute to the true ruggedness the Pacific Northwest offers.

Listed are select results from the 2017 Winter Vashon Races held Dec. 2, 2017. CAL 20

La Paz, Mexico Words and Photos by Norris Comer The appropriately named city of La Paz, Spanish for “The Peace”, is a favorite winter base for cruisers who live the snowbird, sun-chasing lifestyle. Like the gray whales who make the same pilgrimage, Pacific Northwest boaters have traveled south to the Gulf of California in the winter and made the spring voyage back north en route to Alaskan summers since time immemorial. La Paz, the state capital of Mexico’s Baja California Sur, has been a desirable destination, resupply point, and launchpad for aboriginal communities, the Spanish conquistadors, John Steinbeck, and visiting boaters through the ages. Tucked inside the Gulf of California on the eastern side of the Baja Peninsula, the large and protected Bahía de La Paz is simultaneously spared the full wrath of open Pacific weather and is located near many of the area’s most alluring islands and destinations. Older guide books often paint La Paz as a sleepy, picturesque fishing town with a sportfishing and tourism focus. However, La Paz of 2018 is no more a small fishing town than is Olympia, Washington, with a growing population of over 250,000 and a lively urban culture. Make no mistake, La Paz is a proper city. While one can stay within the boating and tourism bubbles that naturally form around the resorts and marinas, there’s plenty of authentic Mexico a stone’s throw away in the form of historic sites, public art, excellent museums, great restaurants, and, best of all, friendly locals who love their city. Additionally, it bears underscoring that La Paz is in a Spanish-speaking country. You will not be in the vast, surreal touristscape of Cabo San Lucas, and most of the locals speak their native Spanish with no need nor interest to learn English. Knowing Spanish basics and having at least one person in your group who can converse will go a long way to navigating and enjoying what the city has to offer. At the very least, say “hola” instead of hello and “gracias” instead of thank you to show some respeto por la cultura (respect for the culture). As with any unfamiliar location, good sense and the buddy system go a long way to keeping crewmembers safe and happy. For boaters, La Paz is helpfully loaded with many excellent marinas, boatyards, and supply stores. Marina La Paz and Marina Cortez are the nucleus of a boat-friendly district in the heart of downtown near the Abaroa Boat Yard and the local go-to boat supply store, Lopez Marine. Farther north a few miles, Marina CostaBaja is a high-end marina within a resort, complete with associated restaurants and businesses. The Bercovich Boat Works boatyard (Talleres Navales Bercovich) is a full-service yard near the fuel dock of Marina CostaBaja for those in need.

1. The Walk A proper coastal city needs a proper picturesque waterfront walkway, and El Malecón fulfills that role splendidly. The promenade runs along the centrally located street Paseo Alvaro Obregon and provides excellent pedestrian access to the city’s underbelly of restaurants and attractions on one side and beaches and ocean views on the other. The open stretch of walkways, with a designated bike lane, is lined with palm trees and blooming tropical flowers, and dotted with charming white benches and playful historic monuments. Included among these monuments are a smiling Jacques Cousteau (who loved the area), a mother and calf vaquita (the world’s smallest and rarest porpoise found only in the Gulf of California), and a monument to the pescador (fisherman).

2. Iconic Boat: Panga The presence of the fisherman is still very real in La Paz, as evident by the fleet of commercial fishing and tourism pangas often moored on the beach along El Malecón. The panga is an iconic boat with roots going back to canoe-like boats called cayucos used by the indigenous people. After the fiberglass revolution of the 60s and 70s, the panga as we know it emerged as the best way for small groups of people to travel over and work on the water. Today, unless one brought their own boat, most will experience the water with charters that involve a basic, but reliable and stouthearted, panga. Another good reason to start your La Paz exploration at El Malecón is that a tourism information center is located on the walkway, near the intersection of Calle 5 de Mayo. There’s plenty to see, and some local orientation never hurt anybody.

3. Flavors, Scents, and Sounds! Of course, you shouldn’t restrict your La Paz experience just to El Malecón, and an inland journey bears plenty of fruit, sometimes literally. The Mercado de Municipal General Nicolas de Bravo is a quintessential La Paz experience, the Mexican version of a Pike Place Market. One can find freshly caught local seafood, chicken, and eggs straight from nearby farms, the cheapest fruit and vegetables right from the harvest, and what may be the best empanadas in town. Stacks of cut sugar cane, piles of vanilla, and braids of dried chili peppers will be unfamiliar delights for those hailing from the North. The market is located on Calle Nicolas Bravo (surprise!) between Guillermo Prieto and Ignacio Ramirez streets, about five blocks inland from El Malecón.

4. Love of the Sea The sea is an intrinsic part of La Paz’s character, and the local love of the ocean is apparent around every corner in the form of the sculptures along El Malecón, painted murals, and the beloved Museo de La Ballena y Ciencias del Mar (Whale and Ocean Science Museum). Located on the intersection of Paseo Alvaro Obregon and 16 de Septiembre streets, the museum is a top-notch organization and a must for those who can’t get enough of the ocean.

5. Calle 5 de Mayo Another good street for inland exploration is Calle 5 de Mayo. As one wanders from El Malecón, Jardin Velasco is one of La Paz’s charming, character-defining parks that’s worth a visit on the street. As one continues inland down the street from the park, one passes bars, restaurants, a book store, shops, and more until Ignacio Manuel Altamirano street, where the Museo Regional de Antropologia E Historia de Baja California Sur (Regional Museum of Anthropology and History of Baja California Sur) stands. If you’re interested in the history of the region (which you should be), this small but interesting museum can easily eat up a few hours. Entrance is about $2, and it’s worth noting that the exhibits are not in English.


Arte! Cultura!

La Paz is one of the few big cities on the Baja peninsula, and as such, it is a natural gathering place for artists and cultural landmarks. The Centro de Artes, Tradiciones y Culturas Populares, an art school, is one such testament to the local art scene. If you’re looking to browse or buy, the Galeria de Arte Tonantzin, Casa Parra Galeria, and the Casa del Artesano Sudcaliforniano are all galleries and craft stores with an excellent array of souvenirs and art. Visitors can take an authentic slice of La Paz home with them and support local Mexican artists at the same time. For the thespians in our midst, La Paz is home to a handful of active theaters. Teatro al Aire Libre and Teatro La Paz are two such stages next to each other near a rotunda park (Rotondo de Los Sudcalifornianos Ilustres) on Miguel L. de Legaspy street. Note that performances are in Spanish.

Around La Paz

Gastronomy La Paz has plenty of restaurants of all kinds. The hub of options around El Malecón are largely catered toward the tourists who stay in the hotels of that area. It’s easy to let the imagination run wild when picturing the ex-pats who founded businesses like Vancouver Wings, The Steakhouse with its Texas Longhorn logo, and the vaguely Floridian tiki bar Tailhunter Cantina (all actual places). There’s even an Applebee’s and a Burger King. If you want the real local deal, it’s best to ask around. As mentioned earlier, the empanadas, seafood, and local foods available at the market on Calle Nicolas Bravo are as genuine as it gets. There’s countless bars, cafes, and taquerias around every corner, and depending where you are in town, the locals know what’s what. Cuál es el mejor restaurante en La Paz? Cuál es tu favorito? (Which is the best restaurant in La Paz? Which one is your favorite?). For the cruiser who just wants to resupply with minimal fuss, a Sam’s Club, Walmart, Home Depot, Carl’s Jr., and the like can be found about two miles southsoutheast in a corporate-dominated, inexplicably large cluster of chain businesses that could very well be a piece of America dropped from the sky. Although by no means cultural landmarks, they are noteworthy for those who are in need of supplies and an umbilical cord to the USA.

they happen 8. Slice of Paradise I was at one of the bars of Marina CostaBaja when I first heard of El Mogote as a tip from the local bartender. Turns out, the charming waterfront beach of El Malecón is just a teaser for El Mogote, a large peninsula that lies across the Canal de La Paz. The peninsula, mostly a nature reserve, stretches about five miles from land, west to east, with access to the Baja mainland to the west via a road. Of course, access can be achieved just about anywhere by boat, with the wide open, virtually untouched beaches of the northern edge being the main draw. The long stretch of beautiful, untouched sand dunes and warm, shallow waters are perfect for a picnic-and-swim combination. Sandy bottom anchorage is a breeze in most conditions for approaching boats, just mind the depth sounder. A campground is also available along the unnamed road, perhaps a temptation after a few days living off the hook. What makes the north side of El Mogote truly world-class is that it is haven for whale sharks, the largest fish in the world. These majestic filter feeders gather by the dozens within easy paddling and snorkeling distance from the beach, and fleets of pangas loaded with snorkeling tourists are common sights during the whale shark season (early winter to late spring). If swimming with whale sharks is on your bucket list, El Mogote is a La Paz must-do.

Besides the gorgeous northern side, the eastern tip of the peninsula has a few upscale resorts and a major golf course, Paraiso del Mar Golf, for those interested. To the south, several pockets of mangroves may attract paddlers who have an interest in the unique, and important, biome inhabited by exotic birds and young fish who call the briny root systems home.

9. Nearby Boat Stop: Isla Espiritu Santo A major reason boaters frequent La Paz is that it is a perfect launch pad for ports of call nearby! Isla Espiritu Santo is just over 10 nautical miles to the north and a protected nature reserve. With many perfect bays, dramatic geologic formations, and tons of wildlife, the island is a world-class destination unto itself at La Paz’s doorstep. There are many suitable bays for anchoring around the island for most conditions, and Isla Partida is practically attached to the north with even more bays, beaches, and sites to explore.

10. Nearby Boat Stop: Los Isolotes Los Isolotes are dramatic towering natural sculptures of rock rising out of the sea populated by a wide variety of wildlife. California sea lions lounge on the rocks between seafood feasts and birds ranging from frigate birds to blue-footed boobies roost on the cliff faces. Schools of rays and fish ripple just under the surface in visible masses, and great hammerhead sharks, manta rays, and dolphins are fairly common. It’s truly wild, and what’s more, there are mooring balls in place to make diving or snorkeling them all the easier. If you don’t have your own boat in La Paz, there is a staggering plethora of tourism agencies that are able to get you out to those nearby La Paz treasures. Many of these companies operate in offices near the marinas and along El Malecón. Do your research and go!

C O U R T P E R C I VA L OF MONKEY FIST MARINE

“If you’re embarking around the world in a hot-air balloon, don’t forget the toilet paper” —Sir Richard Branson

F Court Percival Court Percival has been boating his entire life. An active Sea Scout, he grew into the Seattle maritime industry and has been working with Monkey Fist Marine LLC since 2004. His typical day includes a long list of in-water projects. Percival currently owns an Islander 36 sailboat. “When did I get into boating? My parents bought their first boat when I was two, and I was always helping my dad fix it up,” Percival says proudly.

ull disclosure, I personally love the topic of marine toilets. I remember well my college days living aboard a recently acquired, beat-up 1973 Catalina 27 in St. Petersburg, Florida as a new boat owner and water life novice. While attempting to replace the rusted-out mounting bolts of the trusty, pump-action Raritan macerator head, I accidentally induced a small, continual flood of water from where the ancient, crumbling bolts had created a crude seal that I had broken. No problem, I was sure I could shut the seacock to stop the flow of water, right? Well, it turned out that the thru hull valve was corroded open and could not be closed. My boat was essentially pipelining water aboard. The growing leak at the base of the toilet was also a bad time to learn that this boat, true to 1970s boating practice but illegal in 2012, had no holding tank. What was supposed to be a basic replacement of old bolts at the base of a toilet turned into a shipwreck in the works. As my feeble duct tape fixes failed and the water, flaked with organic matter decades in the making, tasked the bilge pump, my chuckles turned into bitter swears. Was this the end to my sailing career, reduced to ruin by an old toilet? I ultimately leapt overboard with a rubber mallet and drove a wood plug into the thru hull open-

ing. My sailboat stayed that way for quite some before I rallied the willpower to revisit the issue. I share this story to reinforce the case that a boat’s marine toilet is important. Notice also that I’ve been saying “toilet” instead of “head.” For the record, toilets are called toilets at sea, for a head is simply the nautical term for bathroom. In other words, you will find the toilet within the head. This esoteric point was brought up to me by Court Percival of Monkey Fist Marine, LLC, a marine service company that operates out of Elliott Bay Marina in Seattle. Percival has decades in the marine business under his belt, and has been the marine toilet guru at Monkey Fist Marine since 2004. I picked his seasoned mind to untangle the fascinating, and important, world of marine toilets. Q: In short, what are the different kinds of marine toilets available to a boater on the market in 2018? What does the array of systems look like? Broadly speaking, you’ve got the classic manual macerator-style toilet, you’ve got your electric flush toilets, compost toilets, and the VacuFlush. Some models from Head Hunter are a slightly different breed, one that uses water pressure, called the Royal Flush. It uses a water-jet type of technology; a series of valves and the boat’s water pressure system to whoosh it through like a water jet. It’s kind of like what you’ll find in a urinal or public bathroom. Q:You were talking about VacuFlush technology. How exactly does that work? The original design was by Mansfield back in the 1970s, and they used a vacuum pump and separate

accumulator tank. Now they have what is called a vacuum generator, the VG2 model and now the VG4 with a much quieter motor. The basic design is that you have an accumulator tank of some kind and a pump that’s mounted in the engine room or wherever, and it works kind of like an airplane toilet. You turn that machine on, it pumps to create barometric pressure in the system, eight to ten inches of mercury (unit of pressure equal to about 30 millibars of pressure). When you depress the foot pedal, the barometric pressure equalizes (as per Dalton’s law of partial pressures, P1V1 = P2V2) and, whoosh! The contents of the toilet get sucked in the system. As the system rebuilds its vacuum, the system cycles through until the line is clear. One benefit of this system is that the line is completely cleared of waste, and that results in less head odor and less water use. The average macerating toilet uses a half gallon or more of water per flush, while the VacuFlush toilets use a pint or two depending on how long you depress the pedal. For boats with the necessary room and that can provide the power consumption for the generator, VacuFlush is the way to go. Q: When it comes to VacuFlush, space and power consumption can be the limiting factors? Yes, although VacuFlush does draw a lot less power than even smaller electric toilets. Most Jabsco electric toilets, for example, require a 20-amp fuse, while a vacuum flush toilet usually just needs a 10-amp fuse. The vacuum flush draws considerably less power. Compared to a macerator


style toilet, they also have less water draw. But you do need more space for the equipment. Q: Have you seen a progression of marine toilet technology over your boating career? The technology has certainly come a long way. Compost toilets have appeared in various forms over the last 10 or 15 years, and VacuFlush has also improved. They keep coming out with new, clearly improved versions of their vacuum generator products. The new ones have larger components that are easier for us technicians to work on, and generally are quieter and have fewer problems. A lot of the electric toilets have evolved too. These days, some models are pretty fancy. You can get heated seat warmers, bidets, push buttons… those kinds of things. Most marine toilets that I see when you talk about very mainstream products, like the Jabscos and Raritan PH2s, those pump macerator toilets have been around without significant changes since the 1960s for a reason. On the larger boats, toilets tend to be the modern, electric and VacuFlush variety, but the smaller sailboat or runabout toilets have been doing fine for 40 or 50 years. Q: Are the classic pump-action Raritans holding up just fine in the modern era? I would say, hands down, that Raritan’s PH2 is the best macerator, manual toilet for most small boat or sailboat applications. Those are doing just fine. Some of those Beneteaus and the like are molded around the head, so there isn’t space to install a VacuFlush-style marine toilet. They need larger bases that don’t fit in the typical head for a 35’ to 40’ sailboat. Throw onto that the fact that sailors generally don’t want complicated, power-consuming devices, and those classic compact manual designs are still very popular. Q: It sounds like the ideal toilet differs depending upon what kind of boat you’re working with. Marine toilets are not a “one-size-fits-all” kind of industry? Absolutely, there are many different models out there for a reason. Often, you’ll simply have to use an electric-style toilet because you don’t have the space for a vacuum flush, for example.

Q: Do you have any pro tips for those who want to reduce odor? Any secret aces up your sleeve? Well, it sounds simple, but keep that tank empty. Really, don’t use the boat over the weekend and let it sit for two weeks. Even if you use the toilet only three or four times, that will create odor if it is left to sit for extended time. Empty and flush it, often. When you do flush it, don’t just flush it once either. Flush it two or three times with freshwater. I see folks who will sit there and fill it completely with freshwater, then pump it out before filling it 100% again. That’s unnecessary, you only need to fill it up a quarter of the way. All of the crap, literally crap, is at the bottom of the tank, so you only need to fill it up a quarter or the way, wait, and pump it out. Repeat one or two more times, and you’re golden. There are a few additive products that I like. NOFLEX is a great powder digestor that is commonly sold. Q: Is there is something to the additives? It’s not just a gimmick? Additives are great, but what I do find is that people will use multiple additives at once and the enzymes will compete with each other. Just use one of the additives as instructed at a time. NOFLEX is great for short-term use, but the enzymes only live for 24 hours. If you’re going to let the boat sit for an extended period of time, K.O. Kills Odors works well. I’m not pushing any products, but these are some that I recommend.

Percival taking a look at a VacuFlush toilet, a popular family of marine toilets for mid-sized to large yachts.

Q: Let’s talk about compost heads. You seem kind of unconvinced based upon what you’ve seen. What do you have to say about them? Compost heads are a really nice concept, but I haven’t seen them large enough to handle the use of two people for an extended trip to say the San Juan Islands or what have you, largely due to a lack of needed air flow. Bottom line is that boats don’t move fast enough for extended periods of time to create

the necessary air flow of adequate circulation. Also, the compost units I’ve seen aren’t very large and can’t hold much before being full. Q: A lot of compost models I’ve seen have tried to cut out the holding tank entirely. Would a compost system with the capacity of a holding tank work out in your opinion? They’ve tried that years back in the 1970s. Hatteras had a Weir Skimmer kind of system, which Continued on Page 115

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Continued from Page 67

The $10,000 top prize will draw anglers from all over for this event. Proceeds go toward salmon enhancement projects. Go to resurrectionderby.com for more info. Next on the circuit is the 15th annual Roche Harbor Salmon Classic. The biggest Chinook caught in this tournament will win $10,000. If the top fish is over 30 pounds, the prize will go to $30,000! That’s a big spicy meatball of cash! Both derbies are part of the Northwest Marine Trade Association’s Northwest Salmon Derby Series. Participants

will be entered in the yearly drawing for the Derby Series top prize fishing boat. Fishing for big bucks and with boats to be had…I like it! That’s a wrap for this month on the hottest things going in the freezing temps. Next month keeps on trolling along with blackmouth in the salt and more excitement in our rivers. Until then, let’s all make 2018 a great year and go get some!

Kevin’s Pick: No matter what fish you’re chasing in the Northwest, good electronics are a big key to success. I use my Garmin chartplotter/sounder as a second sense of sight and extra sensory perception when fishing. I’ve always found their products to be intuitive and easy to use. Garmin offers touch screen or button control, depending on your personal preference. The echoMAP and GPSMAP charts are great for showing underwater contours and fishy structure. Their sonar and transducers with HD-ID, CHIRP, ClearVu, and SideVu technology really help locate bait and fish. Check out the full line up at garmin.com.

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

MARINE

Continued from Page 109

is basically a very large tank where you put your deposits on one end and it travels through a series of three different compartments. The solids are transfer to one spot, the liquids to another, and by the time it gets to the end, clean water goes over the side. This technology actually came from trains and is still used today. The problem is that boats don’t go 60 miles an hour, and that’s important for the necessary airfl ow. These systems are run by gravity, which also requires the waste to be a solid mass. The macerator toilets used in the marine sphere reduce the waste to fine particulates, which doesn’t work as well with the gravity-fed approach. Q: It looks like we’re heading for a Puget Sound-wide No Discharge Zone for recreational boaters. How will that effect what kind of marine toilets you work with? For starters, I just want to say that I’m fully in support of the proposed Puget Sound No Discharge Zone. With the facilities that we have these days and the better technology boaters have at their disposal, there’s just no need to flush it all overboard anymore. It’s not necessary; it isn’t the 1970s anymore. How does this legislation potentially effect my business? I’ve never been a big proponent of systems that treat sewage aboard, so it’s all in line with my

Monkey Fist LLC's dockside headquarters on Elliott Bay Marina's G Dock. Their technicians are mobile and travel to local clients.

marine head philosophy. Those overboard systems have always been persnickety and never worked properly. What’s more, they require saltwater to work, so if you’re boating on Lake Union or something, it doesn’t even treat the water properly before it is dumped. I’ve heard people say that they’ve been using their Electric-Sani for 20 years and it’s never given them a problem. Well, good for you, you’re the one motoring away who doesn’t have to deal with the mess. I’ve always had the stance where we should install a complete system with a tank and do it right. This Puget Sound No Discharge Zone is a long time coming.

Q: Do you see any marine toilet industry-disrupting technology on the horizon? Are you anticipating going to a boat show and being floored by a product because “holy crap (pun intended) they actually DID it!”? I think, as time goes on and we keep getting greener and greener, that a composting style toilet will become more popular and emerge as the industry favorite. It's kind of like electric motors for boats, because green is in demand for boaters. The next trend setter will probably be the ecologically-minded compost system that many boaters have been waiting for.

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

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

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.
