FROM THE HELM

Ironing Out the Wrinkles and Celebrating Summer’s Arrival

Spring in the Pacific Northwest can be a time of fickle weather, with rain and wind one day and warm sunshine and blue skies the next. As boaters, we have long learned to roll with the meteorological punches, to always pack warm clothes and Michelle Zeasman rain gear, and to ensure that the galley is properly provisioned with everything from watermelon slices and cold drinks to hearty soups and bottomless cups of coffee. Fortunately, summer is rapidly approaching, bringing with it thoughts of lasting high-pressure systems, long evenings, early sunrises, and—provided we don’t get dealt a classic “June-uary”—fantastic boating conditions. Spring’s evolution into summer also stands as a good metaphor for the recent changes that have been taking place at Northwest Yachting. As I’ve mentioned in this space before, the magazine underwent a full stem-to-sternpost redesign with our May issue, and we are immensely proud of our new look and refreshed content. However, we are fully aware that—much like the launch of a new yacht—it can take some time to fully iron-out the kinks, so expect to see some small tweaks in coming issues as we dial-in our new format. Think of it as the editorial equivalent of calibrating our instruments and locking in all of our favorite custom screens on the multi-function display(s). As we go through this process, my staff and I welcome feedback from our loyal readers and advertisers, so please feel free to share your thoughts on the new Northwest Yachting and how we can better serve the Pacific Northwest boating community. Speaking of our marine community, we have packed this issue with a wealth of entertaining, engaging, and insightful content meant to inform and inspire Pacific Northwest boaters. For example, managing editor Norris Comer took on two interesting features this month, the first on the ongoing efforts to restore the deteriorating Leschi moorages, the second on the upcoming Race to Alaska (R2AK), which starts in Port Townsend on

June 23 and will send the fleet of 48 fullrace entrants toward Ketchikan, Alaska. As Norris reports, the first team into Ketchikan will collect $10,000 in purse money—are you willing to brave cold waters, massive tidal rips, and marauding grizzly bears to fetch this prize? Us neither, but we sure love reading about other people’s adventures, even if vessels that carry mechanized propulsion are banned from participating. As for the Leschi moorages, we are glad to see that things are progressing, and that this important-but-dilapidated boating resource will hopefully soon receive the long-overdue love needed to bring the facility up to safe and contemporary standards. Also inside our feature well are two other engaging stories, namely a profile on hydroplane pilot Chip Hanauer, a Seattle local who become one of the most successful Unlimited Hydroplane racers in history, and an in-depth look at the impact that recently fallen fuel prices have had on local boating, from boat and pump sales to hours of on-the-water enjoyment. Additionally, we have loaded our news and cruising sections with an array of great content, from an interview with the first person to climb all seven summits (i.e., the tallest peak on each of the seven continents) and sail all seven seas, to a Ports of Call article on the newly reopened Lakebay Marina Resort, situated on southwestern Puget Sound, to our Ask the Experts interview with Tony Bulpin of Sea Hawk Paints. And that’s to say nothing of this month’s Perfect Lines centerfold spread, the winner of our Pets on Boats contest, our columns, and a roundup of the best new boats and equipment in our Arrivals and Chandlery departments (respectively). Finally, Northwest Yachting is seeking some new and colorful writers to add their unique voice to our pages. If you have long harbored an inner writer, this could be a great opportunity to shake loose your muse. If contributing your words to Northwest Yachting sounds enticing, please contact us at submissions@nwyachting.com

Boats rafting up after the first Duck Dodge of 2016 (photo: Alex Kwanten)

Dodge the Ducks If you’ve ever walked about the Lake Union area after work on Tuesdays and noticed an abnormally large fleet of sailboats cruising around, you’ve likely witnessed one of Seattle’s most conspicuous sailing traditions. Duck Dodge is about as informal as a race gets and welcomes boats of all kinds, ranging from “Fast Boats” to “Cruising/ Slow Boats” to a “Dinghy Class.” The first race of 2016 was sailed on May 10, 2016 and the last one will be held on September 6. Duck Dodge is beloved by race veterans and is perfect for the newcomers who are just beginning.

a, “Duck Dodge” in 1974 had the subtitle, “Lake Union Beer Can Regatta,” just in case people didn’t get the idea. The rules are proudly displayed online and include Rules #3, #5, #7, #9, and #11 which are all, “No hitting oneanother (with or without boats).” Rule #6 is, “Bribing the committee is against the rules (while anybody is looking).” Rule #8 is, “There is no rule number 8”. Of course, there is the all-important Rule #12, “Never make a duck change its course (Dodge the Duck).” In fact, the “Scared Duck Rule” always applies. Any yacht that comes into contact with, or substantially frightening,

In fact, the “Scared Duck Rule” always applies. Any yacht that comes into contact with, or substantially frightening, any duck must complete a 720-degree turn and apologize to the duck before continuing The race/party was originally called the, “Tenas Chuck Duck Dodge” in the Native American style. Tenas Chuck is the Native American name for Lake Union. The original handbill announcing

12 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

any duck must complete a 720-degree turn and apologize to the duck before continuing. Get the picture? Additionally, each race has a theme and the 2016 series is no exception.

Naturals like “pirate” and “skipper’s choice” are to be expected. “Star wars” and “ugly sweater” are a bit more of a surprise… but “dead presidents” and “prom”? Genius. Maybe next year they can combine the two into “dead president prom”? Think about it. The course is always the same and is built around Lake Union landmarks like the Aurora Bridge and Police Department floats. Any sailboat of any size with any crew and any sailplan is welcome, just show up at 1900 hours on a Tuesday and you’re in. How’s that for simple? It’s the perfect race for a local beginner who may be intimidated by the big league racing scene that can dominate Puget Sound. Duck Dodge definitely doesn’t end when the last boats round the course. The real fun begins as the boats raftup and the sun sinks low. Old friends reunite and new friends are made as a quintessential Seattle summer ritual comes full circle. Duck Dodge is a time to sit back in the sun with a drink and just soak it all in. You’re on a boat and nothing else matters. For details, the website is worth a visit (duckdodge.com) and information is available at info@duckdodge.org.

Bob Perry Nation Lionheart’s Concerto, a 42’ motor yacht, was designed by Perry with cues from the 1937 Bugatti Atlantic Coupe.

The 31st annual Bob Perry Rendezvous is coming up, August 1921, 2016, and there is plenty to be excited about. The party is hosted by Bob Perry himself in Port Ludlow and boats are encouraged to arrive on Thursday, August 18. A fabulous potluck with dancing to live music and the dreaded blind crew’s dinghy race are just a few

of the highlights. If you’ve got a Bob Perry-designed boat, you best make your reservations now. But did you know that Bob Perry, while he is most well-known for his sailboat designs (including such legends as the Valiant 40), has also dabbled in the world of power yachts and even designed Paul Allen’s submarine? “Powerboats feel like half a boat to me,” Perry confesses. “There’s no mast and there’s no rigging.” Spoken like a true sailor. But Perry’s list of custom power projects is impressive and range from Pacific Northwest trawlers, lobster boats, commuter launches for resorts, and even a double-ender that purposefully invokes the style of a Bugatti car with “dog bone” windows. His clients have been Pacific Northwest locals, Mainers, and a resort in the Florida Keys.

D

O

NTO W W Not just above water: Perry also designed Paul Allen’s Submarine. “I did a couple of electric boats too with Duffy (Boat Rental Company of Seattle),” recalls Perry. “It’s funny, I think just about all of my powerboat commissions came through sailing people I knew.” When it came to designing Paul Allen’s submarine, Bob Perry’s team was tasked with how the overall vessel was styled. “It wasn’t all throw pillows and doilies. We were responsible for what you saw and [it] had to include floats. There was quite a bit of sophisticated engineering involved,” Perry says. He never met Paul Allen, but pictures of the submarine (painted yellow, of course) in the famous Octopussy superyacht abound on the internet. You can meet Bob Perry yourself at the rendezvous. It’s not everyday a designer of legendary sailboats, a Bugatti-inspired powerboat, and Paul Allen’s submarine throws a party. More information on Bob Perry and the rendezvous can be found at perryboat.com. 14 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

Would you enjoy a free adventure cruise in Costa Rica and Panama? Yes? Well now is your chance. Un-cruiseAdventures is celebrating their 20th anniversary with an essay contest that is open to all. The grand prize is a free adventure cruise in Costa Rica and Panama. Un-cruise Adventures offers small-group, hands-on experiences to some of the most inspiring places in the Americas. The “boutique yacht” and small-ship travel adventure experiences of UnCruise take clients to the lesstravelled reaches where the big cruise ships don’t go. The mission? To provide guests with an enriching adventure-travel experience and to inspire an appreciation of local cultures and the natural world. The rules for the essay contest are simple and one has two options. The first is to share a memory of a past Un-Cruise Adventures voyage. Did you see your first orca pod with Un-Cruise and did it change your life? Was that beach bonfire on Mexico’s Sea of Cortez with your dad one of your best memories? The company would love to hear about it. The second option is for those who have never sailed with UnCruise Adventures. Simply write about what travelling to Costa Rica and Panama means to you. What inspires you about those places? Is your favorite animal the three-toed sloth? Share your dream and see what happens. The contest runs until June 20, 2016 and essays must be a minimum of 200 words. The lucky winners will be announced on June 27, 2016. Visit www.un-cruise.com/contest for details. ¡Buena suerte!

Seattle Yachts Merges With Northwest Yachts merger, and although they knew that Griffin was battling cancer, it seemed like he was responding well to treatment. Griffin leaves behind a host of folks who love him. “Ted was in this business because he loved it and wanted to

have fun. And that’s the same reason that we’re in the business. Let’s make it fun, that’s what Ted would want. He lived a wonderful life with two great kids, and we’re happy for the life he had and the joy he brought to us and our lives,” says Whiting. “We’re

not going to mope around, that’s not what Ted would’ve wanted.” NW Yachting wishes Seattle Yachts well with the new voyage. The Seattle office can be reached at 206-789-8044 and the Anacortes office at 360-299-0777.

Seattle Yachts and Northwest Yachts have merged their dealership and brokerage businesses as of April 15, 2016. The new company operates under the name Seattle Yachts and has offices at Shilshole Bay Marina in Seattle and Anacortes Marina in Anacortes. Their team is ready to help their clients find that perfect boat or sell their yacht that they just don’t have time for anymore. You know what they say about the two happiest days of a boater’s life, right? “The merger is going great,” says partner Peter Whiting, formerly the owner of Northwest Yachts. “We’ve got six new lines of boats,including the brand-new Nimbus line from Sweden that everybody is excited Peter Whiting about.” The new Seattle Yachts is a powerboat dealer for DeFever, Northwest, Nimbus, Paragon, President, and Eagle powerboats. The brokerage also deals with Catalina and Tayana sailboats. Northwest Yachts will continue to be the brand name of the Northwest line of trawler and expedition-style motor yachts that is sold exclusively by Seattle Yachts. “We’re expanding the Seattle office and we’ve got this larger office here in Anacortes,” continues Whiting. But success is bittersweet at Seattle Yachts, for former owner and friend of the boating community Ted Griffin succumbed to cancer in late April. “He [Griffin] was a longtime friend. We always talked about how to do something t o gether as a joint venture,” says Ted Griffin Whiting. The chance to finally work together came to fruition with the

R2AK’s Women Warriors In case you couldn’t tell from our lead feature, we’ve definitely caught the Race to Alaska fever and are equally as fascinated by the participants facing the course as the challenge itself. In a world seemingly dominated by bearded and windblown men, a team of nine women (which makes them the largest team entered in this year’s race) has steppedup to the plate. Team Kraken Up! (get it?) is set to go the full 750 miles in their cabin-less 26-foot longdory that’s fitted with eight oars. The hull is a reproduction of a boat that was designed in 1993 by Kit Africa for ocean rower Mick Bird, who spent 64 days aboard the boat rowing 2,500 miles from California to Hawaii. Team Karken Up!’s boat Onward was built to identical specs at the Community Boat Project of Port Hadlock, WA. Team Member

20 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

Julie Keim bought the longdory Onward from the Community Boat Project to help them continue their work with veterans, youth, and women in Jefferson County. We asked team members Julie Keim, Kim Carver, Jill Russell, and Marcella Branniff a few questions about them and what they expect. How did you hear about this race/what is your history with it? Have you done it before? (Keim) I watched a little bit of it last year and thought folks were absolutely crazy to take it on! I have never done anything like this before. (Carver) I was running social media for the NW Maritime Center when Jake came up with the idea. I ran the Facebook page for the first race and became caught up in the community feel of the event, so I decided I wanted to race as well.

(Russell) Last summer, I was working in Alaska and my wife, Marcella Branniff, kept mentioning the race and how she was getting addicted to it. I was on ships at the time, so didn’t have access to the race tracker on the Internet, but got excited about it just from her descriptions and exclamation that we should enter some time. Of course, I didn’t really think she was serious... (Branniff) The owner of the company I work for entered the race last year, and was a sponsor, (and entered and sponsored this year as well) so I was pretty dialed in to the thing, and I became obsessed with watching all of the teams on the race tracker once it began. There was so much drama and excitement, it was hard to watch from behind a computer screen, but I could barely tear myself away. I’d wished they’d all had video cameras onboard, or blogs, or whatever. I would have consumed it all. What does this race mean to you personally, what makes the race special? (Keim) I love Southeast Alaska! I worked on small PAX ships in southeast Alaska and I would watch in envy the small boats cruising through. Continued on Page 22

(Carver) I like the communitybuilding aspect of it; it brings together all kinds of mariners and all kind of boats. There’s nothing like it in that respect. Personally, preparing for it has motivated me to get in the best shape of my adult life. (Russell) This race is personal because it is so special. A certain amount of ludicrousness makes adventure much more enticing, and this race has that in spades. (Branniff ) Having run ships between Seattle and Alaska for most of my career, I’m familiar with the route, but I’ve never done it without at least 1000 hp. I’m looking forward to slowing down and really getting to know these waters, in a way that you just can’t at 12 knots. (No offense to all the trimarans in the race.) It feels similar to when I hiked [the Appalachian Trail from] from Georgia to Maine, and was often asked “but why are you walking when you can just drive?” If you don’t understand why that’s a

strange question, I can’t explain why this race is special. We’re rowing and sailing because you get to know yourself, your team, the water, the boat, everything, in a completely new way, and share that experience together. That’s pretty cool. Why are you doing this crazy race? What’s your motive and why not just take it easy on the couch? (Keim) I love team events! It was a great excuse to get focused on my physical and mental well-being. (Carver) Why NOT do this crazy race? Why is it that when we have less life left to enjoy, some of us get more sedentary and more scared of danger? I’m not going to spend this life watching everyone else have all the adventure! (Russell) Our team motto is Adventure or Nothing and we all stand by it. We aren’t adrenaline junkies, but I know I love the idea and reality of pushing myself, embracing being uncomfortable, and experiencing life instead of reading about it or watching from a couch. (Branniff) After enjoying two

The whole team (left to right, top row): Tara Morgan, Katie Wixom, Alice Rhomieux, Kim Carver, Heather Carter, Julie Keim; (left to right, top row): Marce Branniff, Jill Russell.

2,000+ mile hikes, I’ve learned to embraced my love of adventure for it’s own sake, including a certain amount of discomfort, fear, and the feeling that comes from redrawing the lines around your own comfort zone. I think every [entrant in the] R2AK either has or will understand the gift you give yourself when you push beyond your physical and mental comfort zones for an extended period of time. I’ve come to love that feeling, especially afterward, with a warm shower and a beer. What are you looking forward to most in the 2016 race? (Keim) Eating fish and chips at the Alaska Fish House in Ketchikan!!

(Carver) The Pre-Race Ruckus in Port Townsend, the party in Victoria, and meeting up with new friends and old along the way, like crazy Thomas Nielsen, [who is] racing on his Seascape and Dan Blanchard of Team Un-Cruise. (Russell) Finishing safely with a head full of memories. (Branniff) Meeting Roger Mann. What are you dreading most about the 2016 race? (Keim) Cold weather, and being away from loved ones! (Carver) Blisters and sores on my hands and butt. (Russell) Finishing. (Branniff) The day after we finish.

On that trip, it made it acros the Pacific to Indonesia.

Double Take

Who Is OrcaMan? For those of us familiar with Puget Sound lore, Orcaman is a known figure. Your first encounter could have been on the ferry between Seattle and Bainbridge Island when the announcer on the loudspeaker declared Orcaman’s arrival as a jetski zoomed into view. Orcaman no doubt pointed up with his left hand, his signature move, as he pulled off stunts with his black fin proudly protruding out of the back of his lifejacket. It’s possible you haven’t had an Orcaman encounter yet, but rather came across The Seattle Times’ Gabriel Campanario’s sketch series of the icon in 2011. You may have even seen kids reading stray copies of Orcaman’s comic books, The Adventures of Orcaman!, in coffee shops. We sure have. Who is Orcaman? As fate would have it, we bumped into him on one of his rounds with his work truck and invited him to coffee to meet the man behind the fin. For once, Orcaman leaves the helmet and fin in the truck. Howard N. Garton, born in 1960, is a bricklayer who calls Ballard home. His mane of hair frames his windblown face and toothy smile, and he is quick to clap his hands with laughter as he recalls his latest adventure, this one from November 2015.

(206) 225-3360

www.pacificmarine.org

Orcaman aboard his trusty Jetski. “I rode my jetski from here all the way to Wrangel, Alaska,” Garton laughs gleefully with a youthful gleam in his eyes. “I sure impressed the heck out of the Coast Guard, I’ll tell ya.” November, as cruisers know, is not a month known for its pleasant weather. “I actually was blown off course. My original goal was Ketchikan.” Garton, an Eagle Scout who rides a 200 HP Kawasaki jet ski is a big proponent of living a vital life. He can be found hiking around Mt. Rainier when he’s not on the water. “There aren’t enough tough guys anymore,” says Garton. “Back in the day if you lived out here, you’d have to ride over the mountains with your horse and a powder rifle just to see family for the holidays. You’d just be expected to make it, ya know?” Garton lives by a self-imposed, “Howard’s Law”, which is also a creed Orcaman is bound to. 24 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

“No one gets hurt, the process is a lot harder than originally planned, and the results are usually hysterical,” Garton recites his law. When asked what Orcaman stands for, Garton offers a copy of The Adventures of Orcaman! Issue #1 The Drab Debacle and points out the four tenets of Orcaman that are clearly displayed on the back of the book. “The Orcaman tenets. #1: Goodness, not badness. #2: Social Discourse. #3: Courtesy. #4: Don’t hurt the Earth,” Garton says. Above all, Orcaman is supposed to be about having fun. We pushed him a bit, surely environmentalists aren’t be thrilled about his gas consumption? “We don’t need to talk about that,” Garton waves off the question. “I pick garbage out of the ocean. A couple weeks ago, a floating raft of two by tens from a construction site was floating off Elliot Bay near the ferry route.” Allegedly, he rode behind the raft on his jet ski and pushed it out of harm’s way. “I’m cleaning Puget Sound one log at a time.” Garton is seeking sponsorship for a jetski voyage from Seattle to L.A., 1,000-plus nautical mile trip. That’s right, Orcaman is trying to jet ski down the West Coast of the USA in the open Pacific. “People sure talk about sponsorship. For a while there, I thought I was set to be the mascot of Elliott Bay Marina,” sighs Garton. He’s thankful that skilled bricklayers are in high demand. It appears as if, like Peter Parker or Clarke Kent, superheroes have to keep their day jobs. Things aren’t all laughs and smiles though. Garton has a few hard-earned insights on life. “Stay active, life is brutal, humans were made to be tortured,” Garton says. “Positive mental attitude is important. There’s too many deadheads and non-chance takers and routine orienters. For God’s sake, try a new restaurant!” Orcaman may not be saving the world against supervillians, like the Drab Meister from issue #1 of the comics, or be the key to stopping global climate change. But perhaps we ask too much. Above all, Orcaman is about having fun. We bid Garton farewell as he leaves for his next brick-laying gig. Will he make it to L.A.? We shall see. More information about Orcaman can be found at at orcaman.org.

History is Made as Clippers Depart The fleet from the Clipper Round The World Race has departed the Emerald City, and the local favorite Visit Seattle— along with the rest of the fleet—is sailing to New York via the Panama Canal at the time of this writing. Seattle resident and Seattle Sailing Club member Larry Garner is currently crewing aboard the vessel IchorCoal on the same leg, and we of Northwest Yachting wish him fair winds and following seas. Seattle resident Yuko Kikuchi, who completed the China leg to Seattle, is no doubt enjoying hot meals and telling fantastic stories to her friends. But Visit Seattle’s arrival made history with the appearance of Martin Frey, a 56-year-old angel investor from Utah. Frey became the first person to climb the Seven Summits (the highest mountain on

every continent—see sidebar) and sail across all seven seas with the completion of his China to Seattle leg of the Clipper Round The World Race. We caught him briefly as Visit Seattle first touched the dock at Bell Harbor Marina. “Thank you, glad to be here in Seattle!” The exuberant Frey called to the crowd waiting for Visit Seattle’s arrival. “The Pacific Ocean crossing was the toughest thing I have done out of all the challenges, including climbing Everest,” said Frey. This was in large part due to his seasickness during Pacific storms. What did he like about the race? “I loved the team aspect of the challenge. During the tough times everyone really helped each other pull through.” When asked how he felt about making history, Frey had a lot to say.

Martin Frey’s Seven Summits and Seven Seas Mountains Managed: Mount Kilimanjaro, 19,341 feet (Africa) – Summited August 21, 2005 Denali, 20,308 feet (North America) – Summited June 25, 2009 Mount Aconcagua, 22,841 feet (South America) – Summited January 11, 2011 Mount Everest, 29,029 feet (Asia) – Summited May 20, 2011

“It is an incredible sense of achievement to have completed what I set out to do eleven years ago, and I wholeheartedly thank my family for their support through the journey. We have had to prioritize a lot of things for this, but it was something I felt I had to do and I look forward to seeing where this takes me next. There are always a few adventures in the back of my head, but we will hold off until my wife comes on board for some them and go from there.” Who knows what Frey has up his sleeve or if he’s ready to take a well-earned break. If you’re interested in taking on the high seas in the Clipper Round The World Martin Frey Race, check out the website (clipperroundtheworld.com) for registration information. You could be the next Martin Frey.

Seaview Boatyard is proud to be the boatyard of choice for the Clipper Round The World yacht race. The Clipper folks know the value of having all necessary services under one roof and more importantly they needed the job done on time, or the boats couldn’t make the start line.

Explained

Share the Shore Early summer means harbor seal pupping season for inland Puget Sound waters and the Pacific Northwest coast. It’s hard to imagine a more adorable creature than a harbor seal pup with its round furry body, dabbled fur, doll-eyes, and whiskered face. The pups lounge on the beaches and old floating docks like they don’t have a care in the world as mom watches over them. But the idyllic picture hides the harsh reality of seal life, according to Seal Sitters Marine Mammal Stranding Network, an all-volunteer group dedicated to the protection of marine mammals. Their jurisdiction is West Seattle, prime location for seal pup and human interactions.

“Only 50% of harbor seals survive their first year,” says Robin Lindsay, Lead Investigator for Seal Sitters. Mother seals wean their offspring after a brief four-to-six weeks, and these “weaner” pups are left to fend for themselves. In their inexperience, exhausted pups often haul out on urban beaches where they come into contact with people and dogs. “The main thing is, people in any kind of vessel who approach hauled-out seals seriously jeopardize the health of resting seals,” says Lindsay. It’s important to know that when a seal is hauledout on land, it is taking a critical rest to go back into the sea. Interrupting

a seal’s rest and flushing it into the water forces it to expend precious calories needed to survive. Pups can be trampled or abandoned. Lindsay shares a story. “One time I was out with a biologist and [we were] observing a female who was giving birth and a speedboat full of loud people flushed the mother into the sea. She left her newborn on the shore. What is scary about that scenario is that the initial bond between mother and pup is vital, who knows if she bonded properly?” What is the best thing to do when you see a hauled-out seal pup? Leave it alone and give it at least 100 yards of space. It is perfectly normal for unweaned seal pups to be left alone on land for extended periods of time, and weaned pups who are supposed to be alone can have little outward differences in appearance to unweaned pups. The same guideline applies to seals on buoys. It’s also important to note that touching harbor seals is illegal. “Boaters need to follow the same recommendations as peo-

ple who come across them on land, so stay 100 yards away,” says Lindsay. However, if a seal pup happens to hop onto your transom or kayak, you’re in for a treat. Lindsay recommends that—provided you have the time— allow the animal to rest. “Enjoy the experience! Just make sure to not transport the pup out of the area. You do not want to separate the pup for its mother who may be swimming nearby.” If you really must go on your way, gently (and safely) ease the seal back into the water. So when it comes to seals, stay away and don’t transport them out of the area where they were found. If you’re so inclined, check out the Seal Sitters website for more information, including volunteer opportunities to get involved (sealsitters.org). If you see a seal or other marine mammal in distress on the beaches of West Seattle, call the Seal Sitters hotline at 206-905-7325. For other beaches on the Washington and Oregon Coast, call the NOAA West Coast MMSN stranding hotline at 1-866-767-6114.

Coast Guard Corner

Labels Save Lives Now that the good times of summer are upon us, it is hard to get on the water and not see a kayaker enjoying the sights. And, let’s be honest, if one kayaks long enough, odds are good that the little adventure platform will get away from its mooring. An unmanned kayak floating about may seem like a harmless enough sight to most, but to the Coast Guard, it represents a major issue. “The major issue is that during the summertime, we get a lot of runaway

kayaks,” says Executive Chief Petty Officer of Coast Guard Station Bellingham, Michael Beety. “Whatever the reason, they get loose. We get a report of an unmanned kayak and we have to search for a person. The assumption is that the person could’ve fallen overboard and that’s a big deal.” The U.S. Coast Guard has to conduct search patterns and potentially even bring in a helicopter. More often than not, an owner who was never in danger to

begin with saunters up after the cavalry has arrived. “We expend major resources on people who were never on board to begin with,” says Beety. The solution? Always label your kayak with contact information. “If people could just label their kayaks, we could stop the unnecessary searches,” says Beety. “We’ve got free waterproof stickers here at [the] Station Bellingham. Stop on by to grab one and save your kayak.” Not only does labeling your kayak ensure that you’ll get it back, it also saves the Coast Guard (and the taxpayer) all kinds of grief. Instead of calling in the chopper, all the Coast Guard or good Samaritan has to do is call the phone number labeled on the kayak. So do us all a favor and label your kayaks and other small paddlecraft. You’ll be glad you did.

Learn to Enlighten We all know the value of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education, but you can’t blame a kid for wanting to go sailing instead of hitting the books once school is out. What if you could combine the two so that the fun on the water could translate to booksmarts? US Sailing is one step ahead of us with their STEM/REACH instructor-training course. The program teaches educators to use sailing to interest middle schoolaged kids in Science, Technology,

Downtown fun with U.S.Sailing’s STEM students.

Engineering, and Math. The program is aimed at middle school teachers, sailing instructors, camp counselors, youth leaders, environmental educators, parents, and homeschoolers. The one-day course will be held on June 11, 2016 at Sail Sand Point. The cost is $150. No prior sailing experience or certifications are required. For more information or to register, check out the website (ussailing.org/education/ calendar/).

BoatU.S. Foundation simplifies Grassroots Grants The BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water just made it easier for nonprofit organizations to apply for a Grassroots Grant with a new 365-day rolling application system. The new rolling application process allows applicants to apply at any time throughout the year and should allow for a faster review process and greater flexibility with funding. The BoatU.S. memberfunded Grassroots Grants program was started over 25 years ago to award up to $10,000 to groups that help educate boaters on safe and clean boating practices. Groups range from boating clubs, communitybased groups, angling and environmental organizations, USCG Auxiliary, and U.S. Power Squadrons. Past projects have ranged from public service announcements about installing fishing line recycling bins to hands-on education about the effects of marine debris. The foundation has awarded more than $1.3 million to organizations that have developed creative projects to promote safe and clean boating on their local waterways. If you are interested in more information or applying, go to BoatU.S..org/grants.

Changes at the Coast Guard Foundation The Coast Guard Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to the education and welfare of Coast Guard members and their families, announced that President Anne Brengle will retire at the end of the year after nine years of service to the organization. “I am tremendously proud of the work we have done in the last nine years and for the opportunity

to support the Coast Guard, its service members, and their families,” said Brengle. The Coast Guard Foundation made many strides towards its goals under Brengle’s leadership, including strengthening lines of communication and collaboration with other Coast Guard serving organizations, expanding the mission of the Coast

Guard Foundation to support Coast Guard families when tragedies occur, and more. An ad-hoc board has been established to lead the search and selection process for a replacement. The committee goal is to have a new president

in position this fall in advance of the Annual Trustee’s meeting in November. To learn more about the Coast Guard Foundation, or to help support its work, please call (860) 535-0786 or visit Anne Brengle coastguardfoundation.org

Water Trails Fun The Kitsap Peninsula National Water Trails 2016 Festival is upon us and good times are coming to Silverdale, Brownsville, Keyport, and Poulsbo from June 18-19, 2016. The event is organized by the Silverdale Chamber of Commerce and is aimed at getting people outside and on the water. Saturday is loaded at the Silverdale Waterfront Park from 1000 hours to 1900 hours. Entertainment includes cultural song and dance, fireside storytelling, basket weaving, a marine touch tank, food, and much more. A visiting 65’ Coast Guard cutter will be available for tours, and of course, kayak and paddle demos will be in abundance. Participants in the five-mile Ride the Tide Raffle Paddle will be shuttled from the SilverdaleWaterfrontPark to Evergreen Park at 0800 hours. The paddlers will then make their way back down to Silverdale and should return to the party around noon. Registration is required online and includes a $5 donation to the Water Trail. Paddling-crazy Sunday focuses on the Keys to Keyport fun paddle, which is lead by Charlotte Morrison, an Olympic Kayak Club leader. This four-mile paddle starts at 1030 hours in Poulsbo and takes the fleet to Keyport and back again. Prizes from local businesses will be included in a raffle drawing for the paddlers. The paddle is for boaters of all experience levels, but one must provide their own gear for the trip, including kayak, paddle, and lifejacket.

loved being out on the water and was fascinated by it and by the creatures that live in it. That led me to study oceanography in college, which in turn led me to a career working in a variety of environmental programs. I did research on plankton at the University of Rhode Island, wrote Environmental Impact Statements for nuclear and coal-fired power plants for an engineering firm in Philadelphia. In Seattle I did shoreline planning for the City of Seattle, water-quality planning for the (now defunct) state agency the Puget Sound Water Quality Authority, and industrial waste management for Metro and King County. When I was working we spent our summer vacations (two-tothree weeks per year) sailing, primarily on the west coast of Vancouver Island. My interest in oceanography drove me to learn more about the places we visited, but I didn’t confine that to just oceanography. I also became fascinated with the history of the places we cruised. Voyages to Windward was written and published while I was still working full-time. What compels you North? What is it about B.C. and Alaska that draws you? In the first place, they’re beautiful. I love seeing the natural beauty of the places we go to. It’s a wild beauty. But they also have a hidden history that we can’t see; you can anchor in places that look pristine but were once major industrial settings: major fish processing plants or industrial whaling centers. And of course, the Native history is always there. I remember when I was growing up my mother bringing home the books of Emily Carr from the library and reading them to us. Both the stories and the illustrations intrigued me, especially her paintings of old totem poles. I wanted to go to the places she painted and wrote about. What inspired your first book, Voyages to Windward? Every time I attended a slide show or talk about the west coast of Vancouver Island, I felt there was something missing; that the speaker hadn’t captured what I saw when we were there. I took up photography seriously because


I wanted to show people what the coast was like. I enrolled in the Photographic Center Northwest’s fine art photography program and had to do a thesis. My instructor saw the photos I had taken of the

But I had to do some writing as part of the thesis. I took a class on photography and writing and [I] liked it. My book of photographs with some writing became a book of writing with lots of photographs. I learned so much more about the coast from writing about it than I did from just cruising there. Glaciers, Bears, and Totems is full of useful cruising information. Is it intended as a guide? No. It’s intended to complement the guides that others have written. It doesn’t include information like where to anchor or where the hazards are. It’s more about why you should go there and what’s unique about the places. I like to think that taking my books on a cruise enhances the cruising experience. I get more out of visiting a place when I understand its history—human and natural. I hope someone reading my books gets some of the same satisfaction. That said, I have met a lot of cruisers who use both books as guides to tell them where to cruise to. I have even met people who visited anchorages on the west coast of Vancouver Island in exactly the order I wrote about them. But of course, they all had at least one other cruising guide with them.

BC central coast. One thing about writing books is you have to give talks to sell them, which means you need to keep returning to the area to keep current. Are you working on any manuscripts now? I’m working on two manuscripts: a children’s “chapter book” about a cat sailing to Alaska and a book of photographs of native pictographs (ochre drawings on rocks). What do you think of the Northwest as a cruising ground? What B.C. and Alaska both offer is cruising in beautiful scenery to interesting places with the potential for a safe and different anchorage every night, in fact an almost unlimited number of anchorages. I’ve done bluewater cruising; my husband and I sailed here from Philadelphia by way of the Panama Canal and Hawaii. I’m glad I did it, but the best part of it for me was coming into a new anchorage and getting to know a place. I prefer anchoring every night. Any words of advice to wouldbe adventurers and writers? Writing can be challenging. No matter how much you want to write there’s also a natural resistance to just sitting down and writing. So write about what interests you. And realize you probably won’t make a living doing it; for most of us it’s supplemental income only. You can find out more about Elsie Hulsizer’s books at bit.ly/1V9Yd9u

Rendezvous Roundup

Monk’s Finest

Treat dad, granddad, great granddad, and yourself with a visit to the 20th anniversary Bell Harbor Marina Classic Weekend (June 18-19). More than 50 classic wooden vessels, many of them built prior to WWII, will be on display throughout Father’s Day weekend. This year’s “Marque Class” will feature yachts built in Seattle. Admission is complimentary. What could be better? Please wear soft-soled shoes as a courtesy (or better yet, be sure to kick off your shoes if you step aboard any of these graceful ladies) and visitors will be asked to vote for their favorite vessel. The winning boat’s name will be inscribed on a permanent plaque on display at Bell Harbor Marina, so pick wisely. Hours are 1000 hours to 1600 hours, both days. On Friday, June 17, many of the yachts will perform a sail-in parade from between 1400 hours to 1600 hours. More info is available at cya.wildapricot.org.

The 9th Annual Pacific Northwest rendezvous for the Monk 36 Trawlers Association is coming August 26 – 28, and fans of the legendary designer Ed Monk should be thrilled. The rendezvous at Deer Harbor Marina on Orcas Island in the fabled San Juans will bring in Monk-designed trawlers from all around and open with a pizza party on the dock. August 27 will feature tours of all the boats so owners can share their improvements and refinements. A bus tour is available for those who want to see Orcas Island, and the evening will feature a catered event (to be determined). The rendezvous promises to be a good time for fans of Ed Monk’s boats and is well worth checking out if you’re in the area at the right time. August 28 has a potluck and members are encouraged to bring meals to share. It’s wise to make marina reservations early, so call Deer Harbor Marina at 360-376-3037. Photo: ©RickEtsell

Small Boats Gather at Sucia Island The annual Salish Sea Small Boat Rendezvous is on for July 8 – 11 this year at Sucia Island in the northern San Juans. The island offers several bays for anchoring and many camping areas. Echo Bay on the east side has dockspace and is popular for the big boats, but the rendezvous is planned for the narrow strip of land separating Fox Cove from Fossil Bay on the southwest. The great landing beach of Fossil Bay is the planned party location. There will be bonfires in the evenings, so be ready with your s’more fixings. Composting toilets are located near the campsites. There’s potable water on the island, but be prepared to take your garbage with you.

MJM-50Z Conventional knowledge dictates that, when it comes to yacht design, you can’t have it all. What is stable doesn’t perform as well, what is beautiful can’t be rugged. Such conventional knowledge clearly doesn’t include the MJM50Z, a beautiful boat that offers the best of all worlds. The obvious place to start fawning over this beauty is her looks. Bench seating spans the length of the transom and wraps around a teak table. The nearly single-level deck leads forward to the covered pilothouse that shelters additional entertainment seating, and the helm is decked out with a Raymarine e165 Hybrid Touch multi-function display. The pilothouse easily converts

into an additional stateroom with minor adjustments. A companionway leads down three steps into the full galley and dining area that can convert to a private berth. Two heads flank the way to the full-sized captain’s quarters in the v-berth. Ample storage space abounds for extended cruising. The MJM-50Z is the first yacht to offer the Seakeeper Gyro-Stablizer as standard equipment, a piece of tech that resists the tendency for the boat to roll by spinning at 8,000 RPM to create stabilizing inertia for a smoother ride. The MJM-50Z’s fuel efficiency of .9 nautical miles per gallon at 25 knots and a top speed of 40 knots makes her an efficient machine. Part of the yacht’s

performance is due to her light, but strong, construction of pre-preg epoxy, Kevlar, E-Glass, and Corecell. Not only is the design light, but it exceeds ISO Category A Ocean requirements, the highest rating for seaworthiness issued by the International Marine Certification Institute in Brussels. Additionally, the MJM-50Z features 360-degree visibility from the helm and joystick controls to make tight maneuvers a breeze. Go ahead, have your cake and eat it too. If you’re interested, Stan Miller Yachts can give you more information. Base price is $1.7 million.

Selene 56 The new and beautiful Selene 56 carries on the proud Pacific Northwest trawler tradition with major improvements to the hull aimed to maximize performance and stability. Naturally, the new Selene 56 also keeps up the standard of luxury with an entertainment center in the salon (that one enters through double Dutchstyle doors), a full galley complete with a granite or Corian countertop (with an integrated bar), and a master stateroom with Cantalupi dome and reading lights. Although not as flashy as the Cantalupi lighting, the new Selene 56 features a next-generation hull shape that the manufacture claims has three major benefits over the previous models. Firstly, the new Selene 56 hull is deeper and places the engine in a lower position

that gives the vessel greater stability and a lower shaft angle. The deeper hull also makes for a more spacious engine room with full stand-up engine access and increased storage capacity. Secondly, the new hull has a propeller pocket that allows for an even better engine shaft angle and a larger, more

efficient propeller. Finally, the next generation hull features a “Cruisers Stern” that adds length to the waterline, and with it the hull speed and attitude of the new Selene 56. The Selene 56 is available exclusively in the Pacific Northwest from Selene Yachts Northwest. Base price is $1,250,000.

Nimbus 365 Coupe Selene 56 The Nimbus 365 Coupe 2016 is fresh from the Swedish factory and available for Pacific Northwest waters. The Nimbus 365 Coupe is a gorgeous yacht with long-distance cruising capabilities and is packed with great ideas, from the practical side-walk design of the deck to the sophisticated helm with its cutting edge Simrad NSS12 evo2 nav system. The asymmetrical side-walk deck layout makes the starboard side of the wheelhouse an extra-wide walkway and eliminates the port side-walk deck space. The genius of this move is that, instead of chopping-up the available deck space into crammed spaces split between both port and starboard, one gets a proper, easy-to-use walkway on the starboard side. This side-walk layout makes travelling between the aft swim platform and the sun-bed integrated on the foredeck a piece of cake. The Nimbus 365 Coupe also boasts four berths down below.

The standard Simrad NSS12e evo2 MFD is one of the most sophisticated chart plotters on the market. The 12” multifunction display has built-in GPS, StructureScan, CHIRP-enabled broadband sonar, full autopilot, and plenty of expansion capabilities. The helm itself is designed with the skipper in mind, from the 360-degree visibility to the electric sliding sunroof overhead to maximize

that warm summer day. Naturally, this Swedish yacht is powered with a variety of Volvo engine packages ranging from 225 – 435 horsepower. The Nimbus 365 Coupe is a fine yacht with plenty to offer for the base price of $495,000. More information is available from Seattle Yachts.

Cantius 60 The Cantius 60 is a boldly modern luxury yacht that’s planing into the future. “Uninhibited” and “unrestrained” are adjectives used when describing the Cantius 60 due to the chic look and open spaces that are designed to spoil the guests. The accommodations are many and luxurious, from the king-sized master berth to the queen-sized “VIP” berth with walk-in closet. The master head features a dual vanity arrangement and a washer and dryer setup is standard. Generous Ushaped seating graces the aft cockpit, and bench seating on the foredeck opens up the bow to entertainment. The enclosed cockpit is at the heart of the party with its own electric grill, flat-screen TV, and shower. All these spaces of the Cantius 60 are connected effortlessly with generous, light-filled walkways that take the “unrestrained” theme to another level.

The Cantius 60 is powered with a standard Volvo Penta IPS 950 package that kicks up to 725 horsepower. Joystick controls, which are increasingly becoming the industry norm due to their ease-of-use, make docking a cinch. The skipper is aided with a modern Raymarine nav package that includes a 16” gS165 multi-function

display, 4 kW radar, autopilot, and a VHF radio. In short, the Cantius 60 is ready to hit the seas in style. If this sneak peak at the Cantius 60 has your interest, Silver Seas Yachts can send you more information. Silver Seas cannot confirm a price, but a little birdie told us that the price to try is around $2,000,000.

MY37 by Fountaine Pajot The Pacific Northwest has a newcomer courtesy of Signature Yachts, who recently accepted their first delivery of an MY37 power catamaran by Fountaine Pajot Motor Yachts. The MY37 replaces the successful Highland 35 and seeks to revolutionize the entry-level power catamaran market. The MY37 is a versatile yacht that’s being lauded for its offshore performance, stability, volume, and range. One can choose from a three- or four-cabin layout to cater to personal preference or chartering appeal. It is impossible not to notice the panoramic covered flying bridge that is built to seat six comfortably at the helm and around a table. A ladder leads down to the deck and swim platform. The spacious saloon also offers multiple layouts to choose from, including a second wheelhouse or sofa lounge. The MY37 is ready to perform and looks like she will really shine as an economical cruiser.

ARRIVALS

Regency P63 and P65 The Regency P65 and P63 Motor Yachts have made their Pacific Northwest debuts and the verdict is in: these are two very nice yachts. Regency touts each of the two latest additions to the Regency Motor Yacht series as, “a blend of European sophistication, modern technology, and Northwest sensibility.” One would be hard-pressed to find someone to disagree. Word to the wise, the “P” stands for pilothouse. The Regency P65 boasts a contemporary interior by Sylvia Bolton Designs that features handcrafted walnut detailing with a

combination of satin and gloss finishes. The saloon opens aft to the deck, complete with extra-large swim ladder, and ladder to the open flybridge. One has the opportunity to dine along the whole route from the fully equipped luxury galley to the “beverage center” in the saloon to the integrated flybridge bar. Naturally, the P65 is loaded with a satellite TV and entertainment package, that includes five Samsung HD televisions and four Fusion stereo systems that puts most mansions to shame. The P63 features many of the same luxurious features but in a slightly smaller

package. The two yachts differ a bit when examined side-by-side. The P65 has a standard twin Volvo D13 900 horsepower inboard diesel setup, while the P63 has twin Cummins QSM11 715 horsepower inboard diesel engines. The two yachts feature very similar Garmin navigation systems, but the P65 has five GPSMAP 7617 multi-function displays while the P63 has four. Both the P63 and P65 have a Brower rotation davit for an included APEX A-13 Deluxe center-console inflatable tender with a 40-horsepower outboard. The P63’s davit is rated to

Rack ‘Em Up

Fresh fish? IceMule ProCatch Cooler // $89.95 - $159.95 Nothing is worse than catching a surprise big one and not having the cooler space to keep the prize fresh. Fortunately for us all, IceMule has the perfect solution with the Pro Catch Cooler, available in small (22”), medium (32”), and large (42”). The Pro Catch cooler is essentially a highend insulated dry bag that is designed to go wherever you go. The triple-fold top system makes for an easy-to-use seal to keep cool ice in and hot air out. The patented MuleSkin

material makes the heavy-duty cooler durable, and an air valve makes the Pro Catch easy to roll-up and store. The Pro Catch is also loaded with tie-down clips to mount the unit on one’s kayak, and bungee webbing for stray fishing gear storage. All in all, the IceMule Pro Catch cooler is a pretty smart and versatile product that has Father’s Day written all over it. Prices vary from $89.95 to $159.95 and the coolers are available at Fisheries Supply.

The Complete Galley Crystel Strate Cookware // $449.99+ Boats present a challenge for the serious chef. Galleys are almost always smaller and more restrictive than the house’s kitchen, and storing a large collection of pots and pans just isn’t an option. A galley almost by definition has less cookware, but what cookware it does have needs to cover all bases. Enter the Strate cookware collection from Crystel. These sleek, stainless steel pots and pans are designed with interchangeable pieces to tailor the galley to fit your needs. The six-piece collection includes a 10” frying

44 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

pan and three-and-a-half quart sauté pan with a glass lid that fits both pieces. A removable long handle and two removable side handles attach at the cook’s fancy to tackle different tasks. Strate cookware is dishwasher safe and can be used on all cooking surfaces (gas, halogen, ceramic, induction, you name it). There are also seven and 13-piece sets to trick out the galley even further. These cookware sets aren’t cheap, but they should last a lifetime. The six-piece set is priced at $449.99 at Fisheries Supply.

Magma Kayak & Paddleboard Storage Rack // $227.29 Loading up the kayaks or paddleboards onto the boat and zooming off to the San Juans is about as Pacific Northwest as boating gets. But who wants to deal with awkward, jury-rigged, on-deck storage set-ups? Wouldn’t you rather sunbath with that special someone there instead? Magma has heard our woes, and their Kayak & Paddleboard Storage Rack – Boat Mounted, is here for us. This convenient stainless steel storage rack easily attaches to straight, tapered, vertical, or diagonal stanchions and tubular railings. The rack’s mounting versatility means you can secure up to three standard SUPs off the sides, into the sides, on the bow pulpit, and more. No tools required. The standout feature of Magma’s rack is that the arms can swing out of the way when not in use. Why have a big unsightly rack deployed when the kayaks are in the water? Just flip the arms out of the way and you’re golden. The Magma Kayak & Paddleboard Storage Rack – Boat Mounted, is available at Fisheries Supply for $227.29.

Stay Warm

Musto’s ZP176 Warm Up BR2 Jacket // $225.00 It may be a warm day, but that wind chill on the water can make even the stout hearted shiver. Musto’s ZP176 Warm Up BR2 Jacket is a great choice for the ladies looking to stay warm without bundling to the point where they feel like stuffed turtles. The four-way stretch BR2 fabric provides waterproof and windproof protection and has emerged as a favorite among equestrian riders looking for a sporty fit. The stretch fabric re-

duces the amount of excess material fluttering in the wind and has the side benefit of creating a flattering profile. The roll-away hood is out of the way when lowered and provides rain protection with a slight peak. The jacket features two large pockets that are perfect for stray items or cold hands. The Musto ZP176 Warm Up BR2 Jacket is $225.00 from Fisheries Supply.

Turn on the deck spreader lights and take a look, that’s what. With Lumitec’s Zephyr LED Spreader Deck Light, you can be assured that you’ll light up the night.

The Zephyr is a versatile, 1,000-lumen unit that’s backed up with the trusted Lumitec brand. Compact (4.49” width by 2.83” depth) and ready to be mounted on spreaders, spars, radar arches, and just about anywhere else, the Zephyr is at home on just about any vessel. When mounted at

a height of 16 feet, the Zephyr purportedly illuminates an area nearly 24 feet in diameter. One can also adjust the light to aim in different angles, a handy feature in just about any scenario. The Zephyr LED spreader deck light is available at Fisheries Supply for $138.32 each.

RTIC Temperatures RTIC Coolers // $124.99+ It’s summer 2016, and for ice chest manufacturers it’s an all out war to earn our dollars and keep our ice solid on the water. RTIC Coolers leads from the frontlines with the slogan, “Half the Price of a Yeti Cooler & Holds More Ice!” An RTIC vs. Yeti comparison chart is even featured proudly on RTIC’s website (rticcoolers.com). RTIC coolers come in three sizes: the RTIC 20, 45, and 65. Notice the trend? Each model is de-

signed to compete directly with the Yeti line (Yeti Roadie 20, Yeti Tundra 45, and Yeti Tundra 65, respectively). Does RTIC really give Yeti, the reigning champs by many people’s standards, a run for its money? On price, RTIC wins handily. The RTIC 20 retails $124.99 while the Yeti Roadie 20 is $249.99. The RTIC 45? $175.99 to the Yeti Tundra 45’s $349.99. The RTIC 65 is $199.99, the Yeti Tundra 65

is $399.99. Why pay more if you don’t have to? RTIC also has an edge when it comes to customer service, with seven-year warranties compared to Yeti’s five-year warranties. Both companies’ coolers are reported to do their jobs very well, but RTIC’s coolers all hold more ice. For example, the RTIC 65 holds 70 lbs. of ice compared to the 56 lbs. capacity of the Yeti Tundra 65. The increased holding capacity of the RTIC 65 also results in a heavier cooler that weighs in dry at 36.5 lbs compared to the 29.0 lbs. of the Yeti Tundra 65. Worth it? That’s up to you. The gauntlet has been thrown and RTIC is coming at Yeti with everything they’ve got. Thus far, the RTIC motto stands up, for their coolers really are half the price and they do hold more ice. Interested? You can find RTIC coolers at RTICcooler.com.

Libation Liberation Yeti Rambler 10 Oz. Lowball // $24.99 Yeti may be fending off RTIC on the cooler battlefield, but they’ve got a lockdown on their Rambler 10 oz. Lowball cup that’s perfect for beating the heat. This cup is ready for action with a durable 18/8 stainless steel design with double-wall vacuum insulation to keep your cold drinks chilled and your hot drinks steaming. What’s more, the Yeti Rambler 10 oz. Lowball doesn’t sweat, so you won’t leave rings on your wooden navigation table as you sip ice-cold lemonade (or a mint julep, responsibly of course). The icing on the cake is that the Yeti lowball has a pop-on lid for when it’s time to plane on home. Maintenance is easy, just make sure to not use bleach or abrasive cleaners. The Yeti lowball is dishwasher safe, but you are advised against putting it in the freezer. Remove the rubber gasket of the lid for a thorough cleaning every once in a while to clean and dry. Obviousily, this metal cup is not meant for the microwave. The reviews are in and the Yeti Rambler Lowball is hard to beat as a go-to beverage container option. The Yeti Rambler 10 oz. Lowball cup is available at Fisheries Marine for $24.99. Yeti also makes 20 oz. and 30 oz. sizes that retail for $29.99 on Yeti’s website.

2014 Shannon Custom HPS 60

Motorsailer

Commissioned by a cruising couple with over 200,000 combined blue water miles, the Shannon HPS pilothouse motorsailer Ruby Kiss combines all the best attributes of their prior boats – power and sail. Ruby Kiss would be at home at anchor at a remote atoll or cruising the Inside Passage or navigating the infamous Northwest Passage. From the salon and lower helm station, the view is 270 degrees. For maneuverability and power underway, she is a twin screw vessel. For economy, she can run on one engine, giving her a 3,000mile range. Fuel and water tankage is large (640 gallons diesel, 240 gallons freshwater). Her roller furling ketch rig is easy to handle. Under either power or under sail, Ruby Kiss is set up. Ruby Kiss was laid up at the Shannon yard but finished and customized by a group of professional contractors. The end result is stunning. She has qualities that set her apart.

Whether you want info from the nearest buoy or to scout ahead to the destination port, this app provides NOAA wave, wind, atmospheric pressure, swell data, and much more. NOAA’s network of buoys is usually the first line of weather gathering data and an invaluable source of information for mariners of all stripes, from power to sail and from recreational to commerical. A skipper would do well to know what the NOAA buoys have to say, they are certainly more reliable than squinting at the horizon. The user simply searches for target buoys by current location, areas of interest, or buoy name and a wealth of useful information appears at one’s fingertips. Do you want to know the significant wave height or dominant wave period? If your answer is yes, Buoy Tracker may just be your new best friend. Compatible with iOS devices.

Hot Day? Cold Brew

Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System // $39.95 We love our coffee in the Pacific Northwest, but who really wants a piping cup of Joe on a hot day? Yet we still need our fix! Enter the BPA-free Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System that could be your source of coffee for the 2016 summer. The Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System is a simple, compact device that requires no electricity. Simply fill with water and ground coffee, steep for twelve hours, filter, and serve. Voila! Coffee aficionados rave about the benefits of cold brew, which allegedly contains fewer bitter acids and fatty oils than traditional hot brewing. If one really wants a hot cup, simply heat-up the superior cold brew and you’re in for a treat. The Toddy Cold Brew Coffee System is deceptively simple and ready for the boat. The kit includes a brewing container with handle, glass decanter with lid, two reusable filters, a rubber stopper, and instructions with a recipe guide. Available at Mrs. Cook’s for $39.95.

The rugged, low-profile unit is perfect for marine and terrestrial use wherever a lead-acid battery needs some juice. This waterproof unit provides up to 180mA charging current and protects against accidental reverse polarity battery drain. The solar cells are sheltered with a tough but thin film for maximum light exposure. Each box has one solar array, one set of battery terminal clamps, a 12V plug connector, four suction cups, and four stainless steel screws. The kicker is that these solar power kits are cheap as well. The BLSOLAR5 (5 amp) kit is $49.95 and the BLSOLAR2 (2.5 amp) is $24.95 at Fisheries Supply.

Simrad Halo Radar

Top Off the Batteries, Heisenberg EFOY Comfort Fuel Cell There are dozens of ways to charge the onboard batteries, each with pros and cons. Most of us burn some diesel by firing-up the engine or generator. Others rely on the sun for their solar panels or wind for their turbines. Sailors may have sail drive or shaft alternators on their inboard engines that turn the prop into a mini hydro-turbine. There are even towable units that are basically small hydroelectric power plants. The power parade is endless and some boat owners have gotten quite inventive with a diverse electrical breadbasket. Engines and generators are loud and pollute, solar and wind output is married to nature’s whims. What if there was a silent, environmentally friendly way to top the batteries without having to deal with cloudy days or light winds? Enter the EFOY Comfort Fuel Cell from SFC, a German energy company. This directmethanol fuel cell passively produces electricity with air and an EFOY-fuel cartridge, which is simply a 1.32 – 2.64 gallon jug of methanol and water solution. That’s it. The byproducts of the fuel cell are a liter of water for every ten liters of fuel used (wastewater goes into the bilge), minimal waste heat with roughly the CO2 output of a baby breathing in a room, and electricity that goes to your 12V batteries. Let’s break bad on this chemistry. At the heart of every fuel cell is “the stack”, which is actually several cells that include an anode, a negatively charged side, and a cathode, the positively charged side, that are separated by a membrane that acts as an electrolyte. Methanol and water are introduced on the anode side while ambient oxygen from the air enters the cathode side of the stack of cells. Free hydrogen (H+) ions, free electrons (e-), and carbon dioxide occur on the anode side, and while the H+’s migrate over the membrane electrolyte

50 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

to produce air and water-vapor waste, the e-s travel in an electrical circuit along the cathode side of the stack to produce the DC electrical current that charges the batteries. The chemical concept may be sound, but what about performance? EFOY makes three different cells, the 80, 140, and 210 models. The numbers all refer to the amp hours of power the unit is capable of putting into the battery system in a 24-hour period. EFOY claims that, over the period of a year, EFOY provides three-to-ten times as much electricity as a solar setup with the same power rating. It’s difficult to say exactly how long a fuel cartridge will last given the widely different electrical demands between boats, but the M10 fuel cartridge is supposed to last four weeks while charging 400 watt hours per day (33 ampere hours per day). More technical data and an energy demand calculator is available on the EFOY Comfort website (efoy-comfort.com). The EFOY energy cell has a host of other benefits as well. It is a smart battery charger with numerous settings to maximize the ease of use and efficiency. The unit is compact and weighs a mere 17.6 lbs. The neat thing about EFOY’s portability is that you can take the fuel cell with you on or off the water. Why not stick it in the cabin during the winter? It is worth noting that the methanol fuel solution is considered toxic and flammable. But so is diesel, and that doesn’t seem to stop anybody. It may just be time, as Mark Watney in The Martian put it, to “Science the ****” out of your boat. Fuel cells like EFOY may be the way of the future, but you aren’t going to find them in the dollar store. The EFOY 80 is sold for $2,999.00, the 140 for $4,299.00, and 210 for $5,898.99 from Fisheries Supply.

Simrad’s Halo Radar had a giant effect on the marine industry in early 2015 as one of the first solid-state, open-array systems that turned the radar world on its head. No longer were mariners forced to deal with the shortcomings of cavity magnetrons, and a new world of possibilities was opened. The Halo Radar combines much of what is best about the pulse and 4G broadband radar systems. MARPA target tracking technology can track up to ten manually selected targets, and even 20 when the radar is operating in dual-range mode. The various pre-setup modes like Harbor, Offshore, Weather, and Bird make the unit easy for anybody to use, and the exclusively compatible Simrad NSS evo2 and NSO evo2 multifunction displays are clear and beautiful. The whole system has Ethernet connectivity. The Halo is open array with a high speed of 48 RPM. and a range of up to 72 nautical miles. The array turns on with minimal start up time (unlike the old school radars). The Halo comes in three sizes, the Halo-3, -4, and -6 that retail at ($5,250.00, $5,816.00, and $6,381.00 respectively).

Sweet, Sweet Data Garmin GNX series

The modest LCD screen of a Garmin GNX display, whether we’re talking about the GNX 20 or 21, or the larger format GNX 120 or 130, is a skipper’s best friend on the water. Garmin’s GNX series is one of the finest marine instrument display lines on the market and is capable of clearly showing depth, speed, wind, and 50-plus other marine and boat parameters. The plethora of parameters includes engine and fuel data for the trawler on a cruise and water temperature data for the fisherman looking for tuna riding the temperature edge. The GNX units are very customizable with different color options to fit your needs. Red at night just makes a lot of sense sometimes. The beauty of these units is their low power consumption. The GNX 20 sucks a modest 25 milliamperes (with limited amounts of backlighting), which gives everyone reason to celebrate. The customizable user profiles allow the user to preset desired parameters for display. The preset profiles are handy when multiple skippers are involved or if you want both “cruise” and “race” preset parameters to choose from. All in all, the Garmin GNX series packs big punches in small packages. The 4” GNX 20 goes for $499.99 and the 10” GNX 130 is $1,499.99 at Fisheries Supply.

Tony’s Tackle Box By Tony Floor

Pondering the 2016 Season For weeks, I’ve been dreading writing about the negative results of this year’s North of Falcon salmon season setting process, which determines how much salmon we can bring home from our catch. However, there are some positives to recognize in the failed negotiations between the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and the tribes, such as WDFW Director Jim Unsworth’s commitment to selective fishing for chinook and coho salmon. Regardless, there is also a semi-truckload of troubling negatives around the growing tribal position toward sport salmon fishing. It’s important to understand that all of the Puget Sound tribes do not agree with the “just say no” philosophy of the Muckleshoot and Puyallup tribes in this year’s sport fishing negotiations. Earlier this year, the state developed a solid conservationbased set of regulation proposals effective March 1 when coho and chinook forecasts became public and negotiations began. The regulations were guided by the state/tribal Puget Sound Coho Salmon Management Plan and meant to protect the record low forecasted coho salmon returns. This plan is key to the development of conservation formulas for state and tribal fisheries. It’s a complicated process with lots of parties involved. Even the WDFW admits on its web site that this process is confusing! But everyone gets a say.

I really like fishing the beach at Neah Bay, especially in mid-July when the Columbia River kings are passing through, snacking at local restaurants. When the state put its chinook salmon-fishing package on the table for Puget Sound, the tribes, guided by the Muckleshoot and Puyallup, said “no.” The wheels came off the cart and—despite several attempts to re-start negotiations—there was nothing to discuss further than “no.” Historically, the state caved in negotiations with the tribes, and the Puget Sound sport salmon fishing world was handed draconian fishing regulations. These regulations offered very restrictive fishing seasons for hatchery produced chinook salmon beyond the spirit of conservation and the federal court mandated 50/50 allocation sharing formula. Today, and in recent years, the tribes are catching about 75% of the harvestable Puget Sound hatchery produced chinook salmon. And, the tribes are demanding more sport fishing closures for chinook salmon in central Puget Sound. Snap!

This snap, culminating from a failed co-manager agreement package, has been building for years. The tribes, or more accurately some of the tribes, have dictated and assumed management of Washington sport salmon fisheries. It is the state’s authority to manage our sport and commercial salmon fisheries, and that’s exactly what they are attempting to do under the umbrella of conservation and allocation. So, where do we go from here? As many of us know, especially those anglers or sport salmon fishing organizations involved in the negotiations, we sport fishermen are in uncharted waters. The state has applied for a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Fisheries permit that allows our salmon fisheries to be harvested while ensuring the protections required under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The tribes are required by NOAA to submit a request for their own permit. And, as you may also recognize, four stocks of Puget Sound chinook currently receive protection under this ESA driven scenario. Meanwhile, particularly earlier this month, some tribes have started gillnetting for spring chinook salmon as a “test” or for “ceremonial and subsistence” fisheries. In the meantime, NOAA-Fisheries has said repeatedly that they cannot predict when a permit to allow a sport salmon fishery will be granted. Their first response suggested that the state might have a permit by the end of the year. Only time will tell. Whew, now let’s visit what you can do this summer to fish for salmon. First and foremost, all coastal fishing ports (Ilwaco, Westport, La Push, and Neah Bay) will open to sport salmon fishing on July 1, seven days per week. The chinook quota for all coastal ports is 35,000 chinook, which is about half of the 2015 quota of 64,000 chinook. Ocean anglers will not be allowed to keep coho salmon excluding the Ilwaco area, which has a small quota of 19,900 coho. This small quota or mandatory release in the other three northern zones is the result of poor ocean survival rates in 2015. I’ve always liked the central and northern Washington coast in July. I further anticipate very good chinook fishing as the predominant stock of chinook is bound for the Columbia River, which plans to host another good return of 950,000 fish. Yeah baby!

JUNE 2016 // NORTHWEST YACHTING 55


On Watch By Peter Schrappen

What a whirlwind this election season will be! It doesn’t get any better than this upcoming election season. Whether you are a Democrat, Republican or, heck, even a Socialist, there’s a lot on the line for the United States and the Pacific Northwest. Prognosticating about politics is a humbling experience to say the least. I’ve written off Donald Trump more times than I can count. Given that he’s now the GOP nominee, I will think twice next time I offer a “take it to the bank” sort of prediction. On the Democratic side, Secretary Hillary Clinton has done what she needs to “win and advance” (as the sportscasters say during the NCAA March Madness tournament) in the general election. Keep in mind that it’s not just the presidency that’s up for grabs, but the new chief executive will also appoint the next Supreme Court justice. You may remember that the Senate has refused to schedule hearings for President Obama’s selection. This impasse hopefully will change once the next president is inaugurated. If that wasn’t gripping enough, there are seven statewide races that are considered open seats. When it comes to recreational boating, keep your eyes on the candidates running for Washington’s Commissioner of Public Lands and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. What’s so special about those two spots? First, the Lands Commissioner runs the state’s Department of Natural Resources (DNR). That’s important because the state owns over two million acres of tidelands. Think of the DNR as the landlord and your favorite marina as the tenant. Chances are that any work at the marina must first get approved by the DNR. Lease renewals, habitat restoration, piling removal all are part of the relationship between the DNR and the aquaticlease holders. If you are tracking government affairs, recreational boating, and those in power, pay special attention to this race. Unfortunately, the current office holder (Commissioner Peter Goldmark) drew the ire from the boating community during his three terms. Most notably, it was his op-ed in The Seattle Times targeting boaters for the woes of Puget Sound on September 13, 2013 that set back relations (entitled “We must keep boat sewage out of Puget Sound”). While relations have improved in recent weeks, this Seattle Times piece did tremendous damage to the perception of boaters. Turning now to the role of the state Schools Superintendent, the leader of public schools in Washington. There is a chance that you have not made the link between public schools and boating. At least, I did not until two years ago. It was not until I had the fortune of meeting with Superintendent Randy Dorn and was swept up with his passion around teaching basic shop skills that are so important to marine trades. Few can

56 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

explain why shop classes ever left the K-12 school system, but many boaters (and boating businesses) notice just how few young people are getting into the trades, which feed directly into boatyards. Okay, so you’ve got the top of the ticket all squared away now. My favorite part of the ballot, however, is what’s called “down ballot.” I’m talking about your state senator and state representative, the real chamber that influences boating policy like no other level of government. Wow, buckle up as we have some exciting races here, too.

When it comes to recreational boating, keep your eyes on the candidates running for Washington’s Commissioner of Public Lands and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Take a look at the state Senate. Currently, the Republicans enjoy the slimmest of majorities with a 25-24 split. Seven senators are either not running or leaving the senate to run for state-wide office. The two races to watch are 17th District (near Vancouver, WA) where longtime Senator Don Benton is retiring. Running for that seat is Democrat Tim Probst, who lost to Senator Benton by a handful of votes when he last won in 2010. Another swing seat is the 5th Legislative District where Democrat Senator Mark Mullet (Issaquah, WA) is fending off two-time House member Representative Chad Magendanz. Speaker of the state House Frank Chopp (D) and his team have held power as the majority in the House since 2002. The balance of power created by Chopp’s unprecedented run is in play as the elections heat up. Currently, it’s a 51-48 majority. It doesn’t get much slimmer than that, but then again every election Speaker Chopp comes out on top. One office holder that I haven’t touched upon is Governor Jay Inslee. He is the favorite against former Seattle Port Commissioner Bill Bryant, who is running on the GOP side. As this issue goes to print, the governor is drawing the wrath of the million or so anglers in the state because there looks to be Continued on Page 86

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Delicious Escape: One part grill, one part prep With these long summer nights it is so great to be able to grab gear, rush to the boat, and cast off the lines to leave work and the crazy traffic and noise behind; it is why we own boats! So how can we make those nights extra special? By getting organized and stocking-up on goodies so that when you head out, you have your favorites on board and lots of great food and wine to enjoy. Some of the challenges with boats are tight storage and work spaces. Basically, there is a lack of cooking space. Grilling is a great way to move some of the cooking away from the galley, and usually requires some advance prep work that can eliminate last-minute rushing around at home, delaying the start of the trip. Buy some delicious grass-fed steaks, or earlier in the week, plan for the weekend and buy chicken thighs to marinate or ground beef and lamb to make Middle Eastern kofte (a highly seasoned ground beef that is formed on skewers to grill). Once home, while you are preparing dinner, put together a quick marinade (see below) for the meats, and you can create two variations by modifying the base. Skewer the meats on 6” or 10” skewers, chicken on one and lamb or beef on the other. Store the prepared skewers in a Ziploc

bag and pour the marinade on the meat on Thursday night, squeezing the air out of the bag so the marinade is in contact with the meat. You will be ready to go for a Friday or Saturday dinner. If you don’t have time for the marinade, buy a nice dry rub and sprinkle on just before grilling. The grill is quick and easy to heat up. If the weather shifts and rain starts to fall, bake, or broil the skewers. I like to serve the skewers with some simple roasted potatoes and a green salad, with a nice jar of harissa and some plain, Greek yogurt seasoned with some salt, pepper and a bit of chopped green onion or oregano. The main course is all set, what else to serve? If you know you are heading out Friday, hit the store Thursday night for some nice cheeses, crackers, olives, and some premade salmon spread. If you don’t even have time for the skewers, many grocery stores have prepared food sections with delicious pre-prepared meats, skewers included! Large shrimp are quick and easy to put together and can be the main course. Stock up on your favorite Rosé (a favorite for many tastes), and keep some extra bottles stored under the bench seat for really last minute trips. Pick up a salad, or two, and some nice chocolates and dinner is served!

Kofte

Herb Marinade: for Meats, Chicken or Shrimp

2 pounds ground lamb or beef 1/4 cup minced fresh mint 1/2 cup coarsely grated onion 2 garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon ground cumin 1+1/2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt, to taste 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, to taste 1 tablespoon minced parsley 1 egg 1 tablespoon fresh harissa 2 tablespoons (or more) olive oil, divided 2 tablespoons yogurt

1 cup chopped green onions 1/2 cup chopped fresh flat leaf parsley 3 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme 2 tablespoons chopped garlic 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest 2 teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

Blend lamb, with herbs, onion, garlic, spices, harissa, yogurt and oil in a mixing bowl, add the egg and massage into mixture. Form two-to-three oz balls of meat onto skewers, creating an oval shape. Chill until ready to grill. Grill on a hot grill for eight to ten minutes, cooking until just a bit of pink is left for a nice medium rare. Serve with rice, a yogurt sauce and some harissa.

Blend the herbs and onions in a bowl, add the garlic, lemon zest, salt, and pepper. Pour in the olive oil and blend. For a smoother consistency, you can pulse in a food processor. Rub the meat with the marinade (store beef and lamb for up to four days, chicken, fish and shrimp for two days), and store in a Ziploc bag or storage container.

All you have to do is sail or row from Port Townsend. The good? You pick your vessel and crew. The bad? No propulsion engines or supply drops are allowed to assist with the 750 miles of twisting water flanked by Canadian and American wilderness. You will face some of the world’s most extreme tidal shifts and endure hypothermia-inducing North Pacific temperatures. Gale-force winds may force you ashore to camp in bear country and who knows what you’ll eat when the supplies run low.

But the grizzlies will be the least of your worries, for you’re not the only one after the prize. A staggeringly diverse fleet of vessels manned by local legends and internationally recognized athletes are on your tail and they’ll stop at nothing to beat you. These rivals include a National Geographic Explorer, a madman who is paddle boarding the whole way, and a tireless robot. Still interested? Welcome to the Race to Alaska (aka, the “R2AK”). The R2AK is a race like no other, and 2016 marks the second iteration of the increasingly high-profile event that consumes Port Townsend every June. The rules are brutal in their simplicity. The participant checks in at Port Townsend on June 22 with an engineless vessel and hand-picked crew. R2AK is “self-supplied,” which means no supply drops or support systems are allowed and all resources used must be available to all participants. Selfsupplied translates to no meet ups with smiling family members for a spare halyard and words of encouragement on the route, and certainly no following boats to make sure everything is ok, however, a stop in town at a local chandlery or grocery store on the route is acceptable. R2AK 2016 consists of two legs, the first of which begins on June 23. Leg 1 is a 40-mile qualifying stretch from Port Townsend to Victoria B.C. across the Straight of Juan de Fuca meant to give the competitors a taste of real water. Some racers plan to race only Leg 1, for a taste of the glory is enough for many comers. Larger vessels face a real challenge at the entrance to Victoria itself because sailing is illegal in the harbor. Many rely on oars or homemade pedal contraptions, some jury-rigged from bicycle components or cannibalized off of pedal-driven kayaks.

Leg 2 runs from Victoria to Ketchikan and begins the next day on June 24. Any routing is fair game as long as two waypoints are hit. Waypoint #1 is Seymour Narrows, a 2.7 nautical mile-long channel between Vancouver Island and mainland B.C. that sees some of the largest tidal shifts in the world. 15-knot tides are not uncommon through the narrow channel that is about 2,460 feet wide on average. It is said that even gray whales have to wait for a favorable tide to pass. Waypoint #2 is Bella Bella, on British Columbia’s Campbell Island, which is situated on Queen Charlotte Sound. If you’ve made it this far, you’re looking at the final stretch of water through the Hecate Strait and across Dixon Entrance to the finishing line. The route is a puzzle meant to delight armchair navigators and daunt participants, and the event’s laissez-faire rules make the riddle even more complex. What boat to choose? A large, high-performance sailboat can clean house on a windy day, but what happens when there’s not a puff in sight and the tide tears against you? Maybe a rowing craft is the way to go. More crew means more muscle, but also more mouths to feed. Do you prepare enough supplies for a week or a month? You don’t want to run out of supplies, but every pound aboard is weight that makes one slower. So works the mind of an R2AK competitor whose thoughts wander northward. It becomes clear as one digs into the R2AK story that this adventure race is about more than the money and bragging rights. Talk of the R2AK lights up the eyes of landlubbers and sea salts alike, of professionals and amateurs, sailors and rowers. What is this intangible power, this essence Continued on Page 62

of something that inspires the adventurer in observer and participant alike? We turn to Jake Beattie, a founder of the R2AK and Executive Director of the Northwest Maritime Center in Port Townsend, Washington, for answers. The conversation becomes philosophical pretty quick when we asked him to describe what R2AK means to him. “You think I’d be better at that question, seeing how we’re going on two years now,” Beattie thinks aloud as he collects his thoughts. “It’s as much a race as a celebration for the human spirit. It’s an opportunity for people to propel themselves into an adventure of a lifetime.” He

“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 around how we get people on the water without engines and with sails came up.” continues to grasp at the right words, to define the ethos of authenticity that gives R2AK its magical quality. “This race is meant to be a recalibration of assumptions of what yacht racing is meant to be. It’s just the people and the coastline where nature is the arbiter of whether or not you’re doing a good job.” We talk about the origin of R2AK. “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 around how we get people on the water without engines and with sails came up.” The theme of an increased need for people of all types, not just the regatta crowd, to hit the water in an adventurous fashion emerged. NASA’s X-Prize with space research was going on around the time and helped fuel Beattie and company’s

fire. Beattie’s frustration with the highly structured world of traditional races was echoed by his conspirators. “I just hate rules in general, and yacht racing has so many rules,” Beattie reflects. The idea of an engineless, self-supplied race to Alaska with a $10,000 cash prize was proposed. Word spread and things started to get really exciting. What began in the beer garden became a reality, and 35 teams stepped up to the plate to go the entire 750 miles. The event’s website racked in 11.5 million hits in June of 2015 as millions caught the fever. Some contestants, like 2015 winner Team Elsie Piddock and crew aboard a high-performance Ferrier F-25C trimaran, were dedicated racers. Others were locals, fired-up amateurs who resurrected boats they found in blackberry bushes as winter projects. Race day 2015 was a sight to behold. “It was the craziest starting line I’ve ever seen,” says Beattie, about the start of Leg 1, which brought the fleet from Port Townsend to Victoria. “There were at least a thousand people at five in the morning. I was blown away by how many people paid attention to the race. It must’ve been the largest non-beer related traffic jam in Port Townsend I’ve ever seen.” Bearded young kayakers mingled with sailing athletes. Sailboats retrofitted to row and rowboats redesigned to sail abounded, a fleet of misfit toys and Frankenstein monsters that were ready for anything. Locals offered free pie and coffee, dogs whined as they were lead away from their masters. The fleet was off with the shot of a gun. The inaugural R2AK didn’t fail to deliver adventures fit for legend. Most of the speculation was that low summer winds would be the major obstacle for the racers, but the exact opposite turned out to be true. The summer of 2015 was an 80-year record high for winds and a gale held for an entire week. Seymour Narrows weeded out about half the fleet, but sealed victory for Team Elsie Piddock. These bold sailors went all out with sail and human power to reach the narrows in time to make it through before the rest of the fleet was stymied by extreme unfavorable tides. The day or so lead solidified Team Elsie Piddock’s victory, but the story didn’t end when the $10,000 was claimed. The last of the 15 winning teams

(for everyone who finishes the R2AK is a winner), Team Barefoot Wooden Boats, arrived in Ketchikan 23 days after launch from Victoria. Many teams endured hellacious conditions and borderline survival situations in which they were sometimes forced to camp ashore in the wilderness. “The race turned into a story of human tenacity. The racers who were out there longer pulled off incredible feats of seamanship and survival. The adventure stories that came out of this thing… I still read about them and am impressed,” says Beattie. The booming success of the 2015 event only spread the word further, and now 48 teams are prepared to go to Ketchikan


One of the biggest riddles to the R2AK was determining the best horse for the course. Here a Catamaran and a Trimaran beat to weather heading north during the 2015 event.

for 2016. And the characters have only gotten more colorful. “There is a trend in the entry this year that the faster boats are getting really fast. We have a few top tier teams that have the ability and vessel to, if there is any wind at all, fell Piddock’s record (of five days, one hour and 55 minutes),” says Beattie. At the extreme sailing end of the spectrum is Tritium Racing, a 73’ racing trimaran from Southern California, that’s owned by former America’s Cup sailor John Sangmeister and includes racing skipper Ryan Breymaier. And when we say extreme sailing, we mean it. At the time of this writing, the team plans to make the transfer from L.A. to Puget

Sound in four days. They will compete in the Swiftsure International Yacht Race as a shakedown cruise and then tackle the R2AK after removing their engine. But the riddle of R2AK remains. Light racing boats will have to be doubly concerned with the many floating logs on the course. Also, what happens if the wind calms? As impressive as the high-tech Tritium Racing is, rumor has it they will have to kedge in and out of Victoria Harbor. Among the human-power champions is French rowing legend Matheiu Bonnier. This former veterinarian-turned rowing boat builder has solo rowed the Atlantic (2009) and the Northern Passage

(2010). He will pilot one of the Liteboats from his factory. He looks forward to witnessing the nature and is less excited about the possibility of foul weather. At the very end of the rowing extreme is Karl Kruger, who is tackling the entire 750 miles with his custom Starboard Ace GT paddleboard. That’s right. A paddleboard. “I’ve been paddling since not long after I could walk. My father was half Algonquin and was himself raised paddling canoes and running around in the mountains. I got the same sort of training. My dad was nuts. No really, he was nuts,” says Kruger. Kruger and his wife Continued on Page 64

Jessica run Kruger Escapes Ski/Sail/Surf, a sailing charter company based out of Orcas Island. “Personally, this race means a heck of a lot to me,” Kruger says. “There are days when this race really does seem nuts to me. Then other days, I think about all of the heavy conditions I have been out in on my boards and I realize that with judicious planning and decision making, this thing is far more doable for me than moving to the city and getting a real job. I think during the right year, a fast paddle-driven craft could win this race. This may not be my year, but I have to try.” What is he dreading? “The finish line. I’ll need a new goal,” says Kruger.

“My philosophy has always been to go out and take on interesting challenges. When you do stuff like this you feel truly alive. It’s grueling, it hurts, and can be scary, but the experiences and memories are priceless.” Another competitor is a total machine. No, literally, a competitor for 2016 is an autonomous sailing robot. NavOcean is a company based out of Seattle that develops autonomous sailing vessels for science research, and they’ve entered their prototype Nav2 ASV model for Leg 1. The robot is about six feet long, weighs 85 pounds and is meant to be an easily deployable and affordable data collecting option for scientists. The Nav2 features an un-stayed carbon-fiber mast and plenty of solar panels to power the unit’s “brain.” “We have some friends who were involved with the race last year,” explains NavOcean President Scott Duncan. “R2AK is an unconventional race, so we thought it’d be a fun idea to enter an unconventional candidate.” What does Jake Beattie think? “The writing is on the wall. Robots are taking over,” Beattie says. “Ocean robots are probably not going to take over the world, but there is some pretty amazing artificial intelligence out there and it’s up to us humans how we use that technology,” Duncan laughs, privy to knowledge that perhaps we don’t need to know. A few contestants have unfinished business from 2015. Colin Angus, National Geographic’s 2007 Adventurer of the Year, experienced a vessel-destroying disaster on the pavement days before R2AK 2015. Angus’ prototype was wrecked in a trailer mishap and there wasn’t time to recover. This year promises to be different. “My philosophy has always been to go out and take on interesting challenges. When you do stuff like this you feel truly alive. It’s grueling, it hurts, and can be scary, but the experiences and memories are priceless,” says Angus. He will be racing aboard a sailing RowCruiser, an adaption of a sliding seat rowing vessel with a small cabin that Angus and his team designed. “I remember a few years ago when I completed my human-powered circumnavigation of Vancouver Island and break-

ing the existing speed record. The joy I felt upon completing that grueling circuit… it was pure exhilaration,” recalls Angus. Thomas Nielsen returns to R2AK as a sponsored solo-racer aboard a Seascape 18, a Classe-Mini type of sport boat from Europe that is new to the West Coast. Nielsen raced in 2015 with partner Scott Veirs in a custom-made 17’ cat boat that focused on human power. “I see this race as more of an adventure race than a sailing event, as human power can play as big a part as sailing for contestants. This is my idea of fun!” says Nielsen. What does he dread most? “Nothing. This race is a good way for a high-energy insomniac to seem normal.” Is Nielsen’s rise from self-sponsorship with a custom boat in 2015 to new European boat with sponsors in 2016 anecdotal of R2AK’s trajectory? Will that beer garden authenticity wane as boats get more expensive, the competitors more high-profile, and the riddle of the route less mysterious? “If this turns into another big fancy yacht race, I don’t have any interest,” says Beattie. “The ethic of accessibility of the water is what we’re trying to do.” Race organizers will no doubt learn a lot from this year and all options are on the table for 2017. New and different waypoints could be established to keep competitors on their toes and the riddle fresh. R2AK 2016 has the exact same format as last year, which could either serve competitors well or work against them. On the pro side is that the course has been run before and lessons learned the hard way need not be learned again. The con is what worked in 2015, a year of record winds, could misalign expectations with reality. The R2AK is a race that strives for a rare breed of authenticity, one that reminds us of what it means to explore wild places without the pretentions and rules of lands civilized. R2AK demands Iditarod spirit and Wright Brothers ingenuity. Competitors need Oregon Trail preparation and the iron guts of astronauts. $10,000 is nailed to a tree in Ketchikan and it could be yours.

One-on-One with Hydroplane champ Chip Hanauer

If you follow the sport of hydroplane racing, chances are high that Hanauer has entered household-name status in your world. Words & New Photos by Ozzie Wiese The chance of anybody beating Chip Hanauer’s recordsetting seven consecutive Gold Cup wins is slim. Could you imagine any pro team winning seven world championships in row, say seven consecutive Super Bowls (even the Seahawks)? So how did Hanuaer become so fast? Of all the stories you may have heard where a person was born with the need for speed, Hanauer’s

T

66 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

story stands out. Hanauer was born on July 1, 1954, in Seattle, and it only took the young Hanauer six or seven years before he confided with his farther that he wanted to be a race driver when he grew tall. While the young Hanauer couldn’t exactly specify what kind of race driver he wanted to be, his need for speed was already there, but this clarity would come with a few additional years and formative experiences. “When I started growing up I knew I wanted to be a race driver,” says Hanauer, many years

ex post facto. “I didn’t care if I was dead or paralyzed. Growing up in Seattle, it was odd because racing wasn’t on television much. The only racing we had in Seattle at the time was Seafair. On one of my first camping trips to Crescent Bar [Ed Note: this is situated ten miles north of Vantage, WA] where we were camping, they had an outboard racing class for [kids] ages 9-12. I immediately knew that was it: This is what I wanted to do. The desire Continued on Page 68

Hanauer’s first boat, which he purchased for $250 while he was still an adolescant wasn’t fast enough to command podium finishes, so he soon enlisted the help of his father, a skilled “wood butcher” to help him design and build faster rides. While Hanauer’s first sponsor was a band called the “Barney Armstrong Machine”, it wasn’t long before his racecourse credentials were enough to attract the attention of The Squire Shop, a nationally known team and Hanauer’s springboard to future fame. Continued from Page 66

to race was so strong and so innate; it just felt that I was born with it. I enjoyed some other things, but racing stirred the passion in my soul.” With the passion to race just burning, Hanauer’s next step was to buy his own boat. He did what countless dreamers who were rich with vision but shy on working capital had done before him: manual labor. Hanauer started washing cars, but he soon found himself shining shoes and working a paper route to save as much as he could. After months of hard, nose-to-the-grindstone work, serendipity struck as an ad for a J-Stock hydroplane boat appeared in the Seattle Times. Hanuer bought the boat for $250. While the young Hanauer had big dreams for his new-to-him boat, odds are excellent that its former owner saw little more than an awkward

August 8, 1982 - Hanauer flies across Lake Washington, with the SR520 bridge in the background, at the Emerald Cup. Coming less than a year after predecessor Bill Muncey’s death, Hanauer had already won the Stroh’s APBA Gold Cup race at Detroit that June - his first unlimited Hydroplane victory - and would bring home the trophy at the “home-field” Emerald Cup that year and again in 1983.

adolescent with a handful of cash in his mitt — certainly not a future world-class racer. Hanauer still needed money to fund his racing. To raise funds, he flipped hamburgers at Jack’s Drive-In in Newport Hills. While Hanauer’s father was initially opposed to his son’s high-speed habit, his career demanded that he spend large chunks of time away from the family. He relented in his stance towards his son’s racing passion and even became supportive of his racing and the two grew closer. The real plus was that his dad was a pretty good “wood butcher” as well. This worked to Hanauer’s advantage, as his first boat wasn’t especially competitive, so his dad helped to build him a new one. This new boat proved herself to be quick, and the senior Hanauer soon found himself building most of his son’s fleet.

While the Hanauer family suffered the serious loss of Chip’s mother the year before he began racing, Hanauer’s father wisely used boatbuilding as a way to strengthen his bond with his son. “We grew up together,” recalls Hanauer. “The family unit when I was growing up was my dad, my brother, and me. My brother was much more traditional than me as he excelled in track and field. I don’t think many people knew I had a brother. And now the roles have switched from when I was the well-known hydroplane driver and he was my brother in the background, to where now he is the well-known CEO of a social-services company and I am just the brother.” Hanauer and his brother were both faced with tough challenges that were at least partly due the untimely passing of their mother. Hanauer signed-up for a special needs program to get out of high school for an hour every day. In lieu of high school classes (which he hated), Hanauer was assigned to work with a student named Kinnon who suffered from motor-skills challenges. To Hanauer’s surprise, he absolutely loved


the work and decided he truly enjoyed working with children with special needs. He went on to become a special-needs teacher. Hanauer’s strange start to driving his first true unlimited hydroplane was made stranger by his sponsor, a band called the “Barney Armstrong Machine.” While the boat wasn’t particularly competitive for an entire race in the late 70’s, it often crossed the starting line in the pole position before getting passed later on the racecourse. Hanauer supported himself by working as a school teacher in a not-affluent Port Townsend and driving hydroplane boats on the weekend. His routine was about to change forever. The dismissal bell rang one afternoon and the secretary announced that there was a man who was wearing a suit and driving a nice Cadillac—two abnormalities in Port Townsend in the late 70s. The man introduced himself as Bob Steil, owner of The Squire Shop hydroplane racing team. Steil took Hanauer to dinner and offered him the driving position on the Squire Shop hydroplane team in 1979. Prior to his unlimited driving, Hanauer won numerous championships in all classes and was continually moving up to the next class before as he finally arrived at the unlimited ranks. “At the time I was still teaching school in Port Townsend, I flew to Miami to race. When I got done racing, I had to be back [in

Hanauer’s career took flight once he joined The Squire Shop hydroplane racing team, and future team colors would include major international brands including Atlas Van Lines, Budweiser and Miller. Hanauer could have pressed to beat Bill Muncey’s record of 62 wins, he instead chose to let Muncey’s record stand in a respectful nod to one of the sport’s all-time greats.

“I wanted to be best driver and never let the team down. If I did, I was brutal on myself. I took it seriously and I put extreme pressure on myself. ” the] classroom by Monday morning. I took the redeye to Seattle, but [I] missed the last ferry that night, so I ended up spending the night in my car. [Luckily,] I got the early morning ferry and walked into the classroom [on time]. So I went racing in Miami on Sunday and walked in the classroom Monday and never went home [in between]!” These days Hanauer has time to just sit and reflect. He says that he doesn’t really miss the actual racing. What he misses the most is the great relationship he had with his team and working together towards a common goal. Back then, road trips could last as long as eight weeks at a time. While this time away from his home life was never easy, Hanauer says that when it came to his success, the key was his total commitment to the sport, with his body, mind, and soul. This included constantly working-out at the gym and even working with a sports psychologist, which was quite an unusual move at the time. When asked what the difference is between a good hydroplane driver and a great one, Hanauer becomes philosophical. “This is an intangible,” he says. “You just can’t quantify this.” While Hanauer’s career enjoyed many highs—including winning his seventh consecutive Gold Cup in 1988 and a National Championship in 1990—the early 90s weren’t a particularly successful time for him.

While Hanauer elected to let the late Bill Muncey’s record of 62 wins stand, that certainly didn’t stop him from savoring his victories and hoisting the occasional trophy in celebration with his fans and sponsors (right).

Continued from Page 69

Hanauer briefly left hydroplane racing at the end of the 1990 season for a berth on the Toyota auto-racing team, but by 1992 he was back at the helm of Bernie Little’s Miss Budweiser racing team in 1992. A series of accidents and wrecks followed, some more serious than others, and these ultimately compelled Hanauer to retire in 1996. “You can be successful and not happy and very happy and not successful,” says Hanauer. “At the height of my hydro career, I was hugely successful [in the 90s] but I was horribly unhappy, almost to the point of [feeling] suicidal. All of a sudden I started to lose my ability to speak. The depression that came

with that made me very unhappy.” Hanauer’s unhappiness went on for nearly three years without a diagnosis, before a chance encounter helped give him new direction. While Hanauer was travelling through an airport, Bruce Beerman— who happened to be the president of Hanauer’s high-school class—approached him and reintroduced himself. As providence would have it, Beerman had recovered from the same voice affliction, and, after some conversation, Beerman told Hanauer, “You have spasmodic dysphonia and I know where you can get treatment for it.” Thanks to this random meeting with a figure from his past, Hanauer’s spasmodic dysphonia is now under

While Hanauer experienced a serious need for speed as a young man, his current pursuits include learning the flamenco guitar and mastering windshifts on his 12-foot wooden sailboat, both mindful activities that require paitence, dedication and an unwavering attention to detail.

control. Hanauer now spends his time playing the flamenco guitar, which he took up at age 55, and racing 12-foot sailboats. Most importantly, he is still giving 100% effort to both pursuits. “I am now studying flamenco guitar, [and] it’s something I have to work extremely hard [at]. For me, racing just came natural. The key to everything is training your central nervous system to do what you want it to do automatically. And when you start doing something as early I did [with racing] it just came automatically. It becomes embedded in your central nervous system. It came to point that when I got in a boat everything worked like it was on automatic. [I] just didn’t have to think about doing this and that and etc…. When it comes to racing, I really don’t have any recollection of it. I was just in what they call ‘the zone.’ That was the beauty of it. When you are operating in that place it’s magical, just magical.” For all of this magic, Hanauer chose a curious path when—after winning 61 victories on his different hydroplane boats—he opted to retire, rather than trying to beat the late, great Bill Muncey’s record of a stunning 62 victories. “I wanted Bill (Muncey) to keep the all time record of 62 intact,” says Hanauer of his retirement. “I had no plan, I just felt it was time. We all need the time and the courage to reinvent ourselves.” When asked if there was something that was unique to his style of boat driving, Hanauer says, “for me, beyond the danger and the pain of crashing was being the very best ‘boat part’. I wanted to be best driver and never let the team down. If I did, I was brutal on myself. I took it seriously and I put extreme pressure on myself.” “I accomplished everything I wanted to do,” continues Hanauer. While many remember Hanauer for his driver accomplishments, he would like to be remembered for his life-saving safety improvements, which includes the Indy type seatbelts and the enclosed canopy. As for the future, Hanauer is happy to trade his hydroplane for his 12-foot hand built sailboat and his flamenco guitar, two areas of his life that he applies a lot of attention and practice. “The biggest satisfaction for me is when people come up to me and tell me how much I inspired them when I was a world class hydroplane driver,” says Hanauer. “[Now,] my number-one goal is to be the best I can be in all the activities I enjoy, be it [as a] flamenco guitar player, sailboat racer, dog owner, or community member.”

SHOWDOWN At LESCHI MARINA

The furthest pier on the south side of Leschi Marina has been impassable for some time. Fenced-off with ample warning signs, two derelict sailboats are marooned on it. 72 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016


Searching for solutions After years of neglect at Leschi MARINA Words: Norris Comer The neighborhood of Leschi is a beautiful corner of Seatt le nestled on the western shores of Lake Washington. The roads wind through deep green forests and past suburban homes ranging from lakeside condos to mid-century ramblers. The cherry trees of Leschi Park blossom in the spring, and the park is the perfect place to take in the Lake Washington views during the summer. One walks through the waterfront retail district and passes kids with ice cream cones and jogging power couples. A dragon boat practices drills off the lake’s shore. The Corinthian Yacht Club maintains a presence, and many Thistle sailing dinghies from the racing community are stored on the Leschi Marina docks. But the idyllic picture is marred when one takes a second look at the public Leschi Marina and notices telltale signs of neglect. Whole sections of dock appear vacant or closed, and sinking segments barely peek above the waterline. Holes in the walkway’s rott ing wood create an ankle-breaking gauntlet. Approximately 38 of 214 (or about 18%) wet-moorage slips are unusable, and do not generate any revenue. Entire docks have been removed because they threatened to drift free and become navigational hazards. Why is Leschi Marina in such a deteriorated state and is there any hope in sight to salvage its dismal moorage situation? Some readers may be familiar with the multi-year batt le to fi x-up Leschi Marina, but we decided to investigate and provide a concise and unbiased take of the marina’s past, present, and future.

Photos: Alex Kwanten The origins of Leschi Marina’s woes go back decades. The city-owned moorages of both Leschi Marina and the nearby Lakewood Marina were managed under contract by a concessionaire, Schober and Associates, for over 28 years for day-to-day operations and minor repairs. The most recent renewal with Schober and Associates was a seven-year contract signed by the Parks and Neighborhoods Committ ee of City Council of Seatt le (the City) in 2007. But day-to-day operations and minor repairs only get a marina so far, and public funding for the major renovations remained elusive. One obstacle that marinas often face when seeking public funding has to do with usage numbers. It can be a challenge to convince a city to fund an expensive project that’s utilized by relatively few tax payers instead of comparably expensive renovations to, say, a public pool or zoo that caters to thousands of residents and visitors. The funding can was kicked down the road, and Leschi Marina devolved toward the sorry state we see today. It was time to reach out to the private sector. In spring 2013, the City sought an operator with a request for proposal (RFP) who was interested in making a substantial private investment in the moorage facilities. Two organizations stepped up to the plate with their perspective proposals to fi x up Leschi Marina and Lakewood Marina, namely Schober and Associates and Foss Waterway Management (FWM). FWM’s proposal was chosen by the City. “We had the opportunity to repair and replace the marina for an ongoing contract,” says Dwight Jones, a partner Continued on Page 74

of FWM. “We had a new vision of what Leschi Marina could be, and we didn’t want to bore people and be predictable. We weren’t given any instructions, so we thought of something new.” Unfortunately for FWM, “something new” was exactly what some members of the Leschi community feared. The FWM’s 2013 proposal envisioned larger slips and a boater-oriented clubhouse, which stirred up a local controversy. Leschi Marina has traditionally catered to small craft like the Thistle fl eet and dragon boats, not large luxury yachts. Also, people worried that a swim dock that doubles as an unoffi cial police boat moorage would be jeopardized by increased motorboat traffi c. Contentious public forums brought out the passions of anti-FWM-proposal individuals and community groups. “We want the marina to stay, but we don’t want it expanded with big boats,” says Diane Mor-

Community Council’s other CoPresident. Snell is a California transplant who looks at the private condos that have taken over much of the waterfront with wary eyes. In her book, the more chances the public has to access the water the bett er. “There were people at the meeting (one of the many public forums) who claimed, ‘Motorized watercraft aren’t recreational’,” says FWM’s Jones in disbelief. “To have a discussion that boats with motors are not recreational boats is quite a statement, wouldn’t you say?” “We have our idealists,” says Morris, referring to Leschi Marina’s traditional sailing and rowing users. “I’m glad they’re around.” Meanwhile, the forces of nature and time continued to wear away at Leschi Marina as renovation momentum stalled. Seatt le Parks and Recreation (Parks) estimated in 2014 that there was still time to make the necessary repairs

To be clear, the arrangement with FWM isn’t a contract for a deal to fix-up Leschi Marina. Rather, it is an agreement to negotiate a contract between FWM and the City that will hopefully result in a deal to fixup the marina. Still, progress is progress.

Leschi Marina has long been home to smaller boats and dinghies, and the new plan provides space for boats of all lengths, from Lasers to small yachts.

ris, Co-President of the Leschi Community Council. “We don’t want big boaters and motorboats coming in because it’s hard on the shoreline. We have kids that swim down there and motor traffi c can be dangerous to them.” Concerns about FWM’s proposal and what it would mean for public access to the lake abounded, but these protests were met with pro-FWM proposal voices that saw a revitalized Leschi Marina as the key to increasing public access to the highly developed shoreline. Ultimately, the City nullifi ed FWM’s 2013 proposal when the public debate became too intense. “We were disappointed it didn’t keep up, it’s hard that we’re late and not investing in any upkeep,” says Diane Snell, Leschi

before complete refurbishing would be needed, but the clock was ticking. Four million dollars of public money was allocated to see to critical repairs and assist future eff orts to save Leschi Marina. Nevertheless, estimates from Reid Middleton Inc., an engineering fi rm, put the fi nal cost of repairs in the ballpark of $11 million. The future of Leschi Marina looked bleak indeed. But democracy lumbered onward, and FWM was given another chance. “We’ve put out the RFP for an operator and went with the Superintendent-approved Foss operator proposal,” says Dewey Pott er, the acting Communications Manager of Parks. The city released another RFP, and FWM submitt ed a new proposal in 2015. An agreement to negotiate with


the City on a contract was reached after a highly public process. The new FWM proposal is more of a revamp of the current layout and less of the “new vision” of 2013. FWM appears to have incorporated the community’s passionate feedback. Small boats are the focus of FWM’s proposal in this latest round. To be clear, the arrangement with FWM isn’t a contract for a deal to fi x up Leschi Marina. Rather, it is an agreement to negotiate a contract between FWM and the City that will hopefully result in a deal to fi x up the marina. Still, progress is progress. “We want to be inclusive, not exclusive,” Jones says. “I think everyone will be pleased [with the new FWM proposal]. The whole facility will improve and there will be bett er accessibility for everyone. Kayaking access, great waterfront views, and bett er facilities help everyone.” “Now that’s it’s been sett led with Foss, I feel pretty good about them,” says Snell. “They understand our sailing heritage and I think they’ll do a good job. I’m tentatively optimistic, and Dwight Jones of Foss is great to work with.” “What Parks assured us [with regards to the 2015 FWM proposal], is that we won’t have big motorized vessels,” says Morris. “I’m very optimistic,” says Jones. “We’re boaters and we like running marinas and we like making people happy.” Jones sees the four million dollars of public funds to get the project started as a reassuring sign. “In the fi rst RFP, the city made no mention of any contribution to the project. In this last one they have some money for the marina. If our new proposal is what the City wants done and will help pay for, then we’ll work with the City to fi nd a way that it’ll happen.” Now that FWM’s proposal survived public scrutiny, the onus is on the City to off er FWM a contract to negotiate. Although optimism abounds, it is clear that nobody should celebrate until the paperwork is signed. Leschi Marina languishes in the meanwhile, subject to nature’s irreverent ways as it sinks into the lake piece by piece.

LESCHI PARK It is said the Duwamish people called Leschi Park “Lushootseed”, or “Changes-Its-Faces”, in reference to a powerful supernatural serpent that was said to live in the area. Like the snake Lushootseed, the faces of Leshi Park continue to change. Leschi Park is an 18.5-acre park in the Leschi neighborhood of Seatt le, Washington. The park’s history is intertwined with both Native Americans and the iconic developments of a budding Seatt le. The park is named after Chief Leschi (1808-1858), a chief of the Nisqually Native American tribe who was hanged after protesting the terms of the Medicine Creek Treaty of December 26, 1854. Acting Governor Charles H. Mason ordered that Leschi be taken into “protective custody” and the Puget Sound War was sparked as Leschi became a war chief and resisted the militiamen who came after him. Leschi was ultimately taken into custody in November of 1856 after being at large for nearly a year. He was hanged despite many vocal supporters and controversy. The neighborhood of Leschi was named after the chief in the late 1880. Over a century later, Chief Leschi was exonerated in 2004. Leschi Park was also an important center of Seatt le’s development. The park was a major stop for steamboats from the 1890s – 1910s, and an iconic cable car route terminated at Leschi Park from Pioneer Square during 1888 – 1940. Seatt le’s fi rst zoo was even located at Leschi Park before it moved to Woodland Park in 1903. Leschi Park was also one of the many Seatt le parks graced by the touch of the legendary Olmsted Brothers in the early 1900s. Park planners across the country recognize Seatt le’s Olmsted parks as some of the best preserved and best designed in the United States.

Foss Waterway Management (FWM) is a Northwest marina operator with over 25 years of experience owning and operating marinas in Puget Sound. FWM operates the City of Tacoma Marina and has contributed over one million dollars of investment to the property. FWM has worked with the EPA, Department of Ecology, and the City of Tacoma to successfully remove the area from active Super Fund status. FWM members also own and operate Foss Landing Marina in Tacoma, which is the fi rst heated indoor dry stack marina in King and Pierce County. Additionally, FWM members include both the majority owner (and General Manager) of Elliott Bay Marina in Seatt le. Elliott Bay is the largest privately owned marina on the West Coast with the capacity to accommodate 1,250 boats from 25’-250’ in length. Elliott Bay Marina was completed in 1991 at a cost of over $42 million and includes two restaurants, two boat brokerages, two marine repair facilities, a state-of-the-art fuel dock, and over 17 acres of grounds. Public access is provided along a waterfront esplanade with two parks on either end. JUNE 2016 // NORTHWEST YACHTING 75

Cratering Oil Prices Equate to Good Times

for PNW Boaters Dave Morrison knows boating. Since 1977, he and his family have operated Morrison’s Fuel Dock, located next to the Aurora Bridge on the Ship Canal in Seattle. Morrison sees people at their happiest. Customers stop by his convenience store and gas station to fuel up as they head out on vacation or on their way home from a typical Lake Union outing. Morrison sees a steady stream of boaters at his fuel pumps, and, according to him, lower fuel prices are the driving force. “Business is good,” says Morrison, peering out from his window overlooking Lake Union.“And while that’s due to several reasons, the one that sticks out is the low cost of fuel is changing boating behavior in the area.” He should know. The Morrisons have seen about everything when it comes to fuel prices. When they opened almost four decades ago, the average price of gas was 65 cents a gallon. Adjusted for inflation, gas is cheaper today than it was then. “I get the advantage of knowing my customers and what makes them tick. What I used to see was that consumers were completely filling their tanks for trips to the San Juans and back for the weekend. This behavior dropped considerably when prices were high, because it didn’t make sense to spend thousands of dollars in fuel just to jump up to the islands for a few days,” Morrison says. “But now people are doing that once again.” Lower fuel prices are not just a Washington phenomenon. According to the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), which tracks gas prices and their relationship to boating activity, the cost of a gallon of gas nationally is $2.22. In Washington, the price for a gallon of gas is $2.38. Carl Blackwell, director of the NMMA Discover Boating Campaign, echoes Morrison’s connection of gas prices to consumers’ moods. “Fuel savings may encourage current boat owners to use their boats more. Or for someone thinking about buying a boat, it could be just the

factor that motivates them to buy,” says Blackwell. “Lower gas prices can also help reduce a potential barrier for a new boater looking to get on the water.” There is a boating resurgence going on in Washington and across the nation. Conventional wisdom says that lower gas prices will translate to increased boat sales. Washington leads the country in boat sales, but that is due to more than the cost of fuel. The summer weather, the tremendous fishing seasons in recent years, and the price of gas have come together for a once-in-a-lifetime moment for boaters. George Harris, president of the Northwest Marine Trade Association, credits NMTA’s Grow Boating Campaign and events like the Seattle Boat Show for driving turnout on the water. “We are fortunate to have consumers who can’t get enough of Northwest boating. Looking around the various sites to boat, who can blame them?” says Harris. Yacht brokers agree that cheap oil leads to a spike in boat sales and more chances of fun on the water. With the number of boats sold and the total dollar sales of those boats increasing after the Great Recession, lower fuel prices are a favorable tailwind for continued growth in the boat manufacturing, retailing, and brokerage industries. “For a long time, it seemed that everyone at boat shows was hyperconcerned about the cost of fuel. This concern is rarely mentioned now, and we’re back to selling the joy of boating — not just the comparative fuel economy of particular designs,” says Scott Helker, principal of Waterline Boats of Seattle and builder of Helmsman Trawlers. “In truth, fuel costs were never more than a small component of boat ownership, but the dampening effect of high fuel costs was tangible. Our sales are enjoying the benefit of the overall improved economic picture, including lower fuel prices.” It’s a national success story, too, according to Blackwell.

water and NMMA measures boating participation around the United States. The numbers appear to be going in the right direction. In 2014, of the 242.5 million adults living in the United States, 87.3 million – or 37%– participated in recreational boating at least once, according the NMMA Statistical Abstract. Blackwell believes the key is hooking future boaters when they are young. Children who boated or attended a boat show are more likely to boat as adults. In 2014, 78% of boating participants had boated when they were children, compared to 37% of nonparticipants. In a recent national study commissioned by NMMA, 40% of current boaters

in gas prices impacts the federal government’s move to increased ethanol blends,” he says. The federal government’s Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), first adopted in 2005, is aimed at increasing domestic production of fuel. “I hear from boaters that the ethanol (or corn-based) blends are killing their engines,” says Morrison, referring to several national studies that have shown harmful effects of a blend of 10% ethanol with 90% conventional petroleum. Cars, with their bigger engines, seem to adequately handle ethanol, but studies have shown that marine engines struggle because ethanol burns hotter. The next increase in the ethanol blend,

“All the conditions are in place for a great trip to Alaska, and fuel prices certainly come into play,” attended boat shows as a child compared to 11% of nonparticipants. “I’ve been doing this for so long now that I’ve seen kids come and go, and now these kids are all grown up with kids of their own, creating memories throughout Puget Sound,” says Morrison of his customers. Morrison not only benefits from a convenient Lake Union location, but he also operates an ethanol-free pump, which he said boaters seem to prefer. “It will be interesting to see how the sustained dip

moving it from 10% to 15%, is set for this year. Educating federally elected officials on the detrimental effects of ethanol has brought NMMA and Boat U.S. together along with other boating stakeholders. For the last four years, this issue has been a priority for the American Boating Congress, the annual twoday lobbying trip in Washington, D.C., for the nation’s $121 billion recreational-boating industry. The conference is spearheaded by NMMA and brings together about 50 cosponsors from around the country, includ-

ing Northwest Yachting and the Northwest Marine Trade Association. “It’s too early to say just what role the drop in gas prices will have in the need for ethanol. We are hitting the gas pedal once again in 2016 to make the case that ethanol-free gas is the preferred option for boaters and the boating industry,” says Rick Gladych of Raven Offshore Yacht Shipping, a Seattle-based company that specializes in shipping boats around the world. Gladych cited the effect of gas prices on business and consumer spending. “Lower gas prices are certainly good for boaters – it’s like a pay raise every time they fill their tanks – but it’s also a huge development for the various businesses that cater to boats of all sizes,” he says. “My company is thriving, and the price of gas is a big reason for that.” Inexpensive fuel bodes well for summer boating, and Morrison is bullish about this summer’s prospects. “If the spring and summer of 2016 is warm and sunny, especially on the weekends when people are more able to use their boats, sales will most likely be even better than last year,” he said. Morrison is not alone in his optimism. Keith Hallman owns a 47-foot Nordhavn and is planning a June trip to Alaska. “All the conditions are in place for a great trip to Alaska, and fuel prices certainly come into play,” Hallman says. Paul Sorensen is an economist who focuses on recreational boating at BST Associates, a strategic consulting firm. Sorensen agrees that it’s uncertain how long this decline in fuel costs will last and suggests boaters should take advantage of the drop while they can. “I’ve seen prices rise pretty quickly over the years,” Sorensen says. “National

The Tax Man If taxes have you feeling the summer blues, there is a solution in the Evergreen State. Washington voters passed a citizen initiative in 1976 that provides a system to recoup taxes used for purchasing fuel. While the process is a little cumbersome, boaters who save their receipts and fill out the paperwork can get their taxes refunded. Over 90% of boaters, however, do not take advantage of this. Where do these non-refunded taxes go? Into a special account called the Boating Facilities Program administered by Washington’s Recreation and Conservation Office. The program holds the money – about $15 million every two years. Then, cities, towns, and state agencies apply for grants to fund boating projects around the state. In a “Shark Tank” manner, they make a pitch to a grant review committee and ask for financial support. It is “boating democracy” at work. Boaters put their taxes forward for communities to come up with their best and brightest ideas. Boaters sit on the grant review committee and get to decide how this pool of money is allocated.

The Real Price With respect to Washington, it’s really not that much for a gallon of gas. Without a state income tax, Washington uses gas taxes to improve roads and highways. For each gallon of gas, you pay 44.5 cents a gallon in state taxes and 18.4 cents in federal gas taxes. Also, there will be an increase of 4.9 cents per gallon starting July 1, putting the total state tax at 49.4 cents. Based on current rates, that would make it the second-highest gas tax in the nation behind Pennsylvania, according to the American Petroleum Institute.

and international issues, production and demand of fuel all play a role in the price. The frustrating part is that all of these aspects are outside the control of the boater.” However, many industry observers expect prices will remain low. The U.S. Energy Information Administration recently projected that the national average retail price of regular-grade gasoline is expected to be $2.04 per gallon this summer, down from an average of $2.63 per gallon last summer. If this happens, this would mark the lowest summer average since 2004. According to the department, if the 2016 gasoline price forecast is met, it would save the average U.S. household about $350 compared with 2015, with annual average motor fuel expenditures at the lowest level in 12 years.” Boaters will definitely save money as well, according to Sorensen. In the meantime, Morrison hopes boaters continue with their travels. “Lower fuel prices are encouraging to first-time boat owners because operation costs do not seem as daunting. Also, many current owners are moving up to larger boats. This may have something to do with low fuel prices, as well as low interest rates,” says Morrison. “Plus, boat owners are taking their boats to the San Juans and back for the weekend. Now it makes complete sense,” says Morrison. “And don’t forget to tell your readers that I sell more than gas!”

Corn Loses Leverage There is a relationship between low fuel costs, the Renewable Fuel Standard, and ethanol production. Ethanol loses a lot of its price advantages when oil prices drop, according to Nicole Vasilaros, vice president of Federal and Legal Affairs for NMMA. The margins get to the point where ethanol is no longer cost advantageous, especially when factoring in the miles-per-gallon difference between higher ethanol blends and low or ethanol-free gasoline. The ethanol industry in recent months has been forced to increase exports and find new markets (best exemplified by a recent exploratory trip to

China by ethanol executives) to offset expected losses in domestic sales resulting from cheaper oil prices. Their only saving grace is the Renewable Fuel Standard — pushing supply on consumers who do not demand their product. “Lower gas prices, innovations in transportation technologies, and the change in consumer behavior all underscore the importance of reforming the RFS,” says Vasilaros. “It is a broken law that no longer meets the realities of the present market. It’s bad for consumers, and it continues to jeopardize the safety of boat owners across the U.S. It’s time for Congress and the Administration to fix the RFS.”

FINISHING LINE

In Full Swing Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson Summer is upon us, and the Pacifi c Northwest sailboatracing world is in full swing. As is tradition, the second Tuesday of May marked the start of Duck Dodge season. With bikinis and smiles replacing the traditional boots and grimaces, it was a fantastic kickoff to a summer of freshwater sailing. The fl eet was as strong as ever on May 10, with the sizes of boats ranging from Paul LeMarch’s Santa Cruz 70 Neptune’s Car all the way down to those brave folks in the Lasers. The course took boats on a lap around Lake Union and a pleasant northerly wind gave everyone a nice push. The festivities continued after the

race with boats rafting-up in the center of the lake and partying late into the evening. Across town in Lake Washington, the Corinthian Yacht Club’s Lake Evening Series gives those looking for a bit more racing focus an opportunity to get out on the water. Each week the J/24s race around the buoys on Tuesday nights, while the Thistles, T-Birds, and San Juan 24s get their turn to race on Wednesday evening. While the fi rst few evenings of the series left something to be desired due to light winds, everyone enjoyed catching up with old friends and gett ing their boats setup for the summer races.

Meanwhile on Puget Sound, CYC off ers PHRF handicap racing on Wednesday evenings and One Design racing on Thursdays. Sloop Tavern Yacht Club is also in the weeknight mix and has started up their increasingly popular Monday night Ballard Cup. With an impressive 65 boats registered so far, the series has established itself as the perfect balance of fun and competition. Seven separate divisions, including a non-fl ying sails start, makes it easy and fun for a huge range of boats and sailors with diff erent skill levels. No matt er what type of boat you have or the kind of racing you want, there’s an evening that is tailor made for you.

On the weekend of May 7 and 8, The Sloop Tavern celebrated its 9th running of the doublehanded Race to The Straights. This now cult-like event took sailors north to Port Townsend for a night of festivities and followed it up with a lightair batt le home the next day. Despite a forecast for strong northerly wind the fl eet fought light breeze and unfavorable current that made playing the shoreline crucial en route to Port Townsend. As the faster boats neared the shortened course mark, the 1700 hours time limit signaled that it was time to fi reup the noisemakers and make way to Point Hudson Marina for the après party. The wind fi nally increased as the afternoon wore on. Joe Grieser and his crew on the classic half-tonner The Fabulous Hagar saw over 40 knots of wind as they entered the breakwater! The sea state was so intense that several of the boats broke thru-hull fi tt ings as they fell off waves and scrambled to stop the water infl ow as they reached the safety of the marina. A somewhat groggy group of sailors made their way to the start line off Point Hudson Buoy to race home the next morning. The wind was again light, and with tides now running in a strong ebb, it was going to be a long day. The race proved to be a game of leapfrog as boats worked south along the shoreline, ducking in and out of swirling current, with those unfortunate enough to get caught too far out being pushed back towards the starting line at alarming pace. At the end of the day, only 40 of the 137 registered boats fi nished, in no small part to the race committ ee staying on station late to take the times of incoming boats. Seatt le Yacht Club kicked-off their big boat-racing calendar last month with the fi rst of the Tri-Island Series, Smith Island, on April 30. With light air forecasted for most of the morning and a promise of wind in the afternoon, it was a tactical challenge to be in the right place when the breeze fi nally fi lled in. Early on, being able to change sails as the wind swirled around was key and allowed those boats with good crew work to escape early and build some substantial leads. What was meant to be a light-air batt le developed into a wonderful day of sailing as the afternoon breeze sett led into a nice 10-15 knot northerly. Thanks to a nice push from the


tides, many of the faster boats were able to roll along the beach at well above ten knots as they sailed up Puget Sound towards the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Spinnakers were dragged on deck and hoisted as navigators worked their way through the shallows around Smith Island. The downwind run back to Seatt le was just as challenging as the current switched to a fl ood just before sunset. Shifting breeze, swirling current, lack of sleep, and an impressively dark night all played their part as the fl eet worked towards the fl ashing lights of the fi nishing line off Shilshole Bay Marina. It was a relentless push by crews to stay focused and—ultimately—success came down to the last jibe between the two TP52’s Glory and Smoke, who fi nished within 10 seconds of one another after well over 12 hours of racing. With the fi rst boats fi nishing just before 2200 hours and the last in the early hours of the morning, the whole fl eet owes the race committ ee a thank you for a long day on the water. On May 14, the second race in the Seatt le Yacht Club TriIsland Series took the fl eet south

around Vashon Island. Another light air start forced the fl eet to split and work the shorelines as they bridged from puff to puff . At the south end of the island the wind shut off completely for a short time and the fl eet began to compress. A new wind line formed to the south and began to work its way towards the racecourse, allowing the boats in the right place to escape around the point and hoist their kites. A light air run back through Colvos Passage allowed many skippers to sneak away by using the cur-

rent to their advantage. As the leaders reached the north end of Vashon all bets were off as the tide changed to a fl ood and many crews found themselves fi ghting to get across the Sound in search of relief along the shore. A steady breeze was a welcomed as boats rounded West Point and headed towards the fi nishing line. It was all smiles aboard Charlie Macaulay’s Absolutely as they crossed the fi nishing line ahead of the several of the IRC division boats and secured a very strong win in the PHRF 0 division.

Next month, we pick up with the One Design fl eets again at the Pacifi c Northwest One Design Regatt a, otherwise known as POD (formerly known as the Seatt le NOOD). The big boats also have a fair bit on their plate with the last race of the TriIsland Series, Blake Island (June 4), and of course the legendary Swiftsure International Yacht Race (May 26-30), which starts and ends in beautiful Victoria B.C. Stay tuned!

Racers has their work cut out for them in the infamous, well-loved Race to the Straits from Shilshole to Port Townsend. The annual double-handed race just saw its 14th iteration and shows no sign of stopping.

Join the Party The nexus of the Lakebay Marina Resort will undoubtedly be home base for visiting boaters, and there is plenty to do for someone fresh off the water. The wooden boardwalk has enough space for a small army to socialize on, and the Lakebay Café is ready to serve-up Alaskan cod fish n’ chips ($14.99) and ice cream ($6.95 for a double scoop). Ample indoor seating invites guests into the classically styled building. Grated fishing holes cut through the boards underfoot make the place a living, and potentially edible, aquarium. Nightfall brings about the real flavor of the place. Lights shine under the grated fishing holes where squid are said to school. The ink stains on the walls must’ve come from somewhere. Live music plays Thursday-Sunday nights, and when the Beatnicks toured through in May it was a full house. Wine, from the local winery, and craft beer tastings are often scheduled, and who knows what Mark Scott has up his sleeve in the future. It’s a great time waiting to happen, and it’s where all rentals and moorage business takes place for boaters.

oaters rejoice, for as of May, the gem known as Lakebay Marina is open for business. Lakebay Marina owner Mark Scott is the man of the hour in the wake of the marina’s reopening and there is much to celebrate, and do, amongst the marina’s rejuvenated buzz of activity. Floating docks lead up to the commanding marina store and café perched on a generous boardwalk. A whole new bar and stage were under construction at the time of this writing to give the weekly live bands a proper venue. Locals and visitors mingle with ice cream cones in hand as they look at fi sh swimming between the barnacle-encrusted pilings. One forgets about the available Wi-Fi as one sits around a picnic table with checkered tablecloth and takes in the summer view. Beachfront campsites, available for rent, cluster near the shoreline. Lakebay Marina is nestled in Mayo Cove, a small off shoot of the Carr Inlet in the southern reaches of Puget Sound, on the southern part of the Kitsap Peninsula. The marina has roots that go back to 1932 when it was established by the Lorenz-Berntson Navigation Company to be a primary port of operation for lumber. Lakebay Marina also stands as one of the few historic Mosquito Fleet ports still in existence. The Mosquito boats were iconic transportation steamers that plied Puget Sound, especially during the years between both World Wars. Skippers must be mindful of the tides when visiting Lakebay Marina, for a minus three-foot tide makes att empting the passage into Mayo Cove a treacherous task in any vessel with a draft of four or more feet. Make sure to follow the cut of the channel, which makes a west-east oriented “Z” shape. The pumpout dock is a few hundred feet across the water from the marina and, like most of the cove, can be tricky to access during low tide. Ethanol-free gas is available at the fuel dock. The website, lakebaymarina.com, has a wealth of useful information.

Suit up, Grab a Paddle The warm, sheltered waters of Lakebay and Penrose Park offer hours of paddlebased entertainment opportunities. High tide opens up the inner bay and one can venture quite far into the forested island where locals say the old historic mill of Carl Lorenz, a German lumber icon of the early 1900s, still stands. A fit person at high tide may be able to portage all the way up to Bay Lake. Paddle the other way into Mayo Cove and a watery playground emerges. Exit the channel into Carr Inlet and hang starboard to hug the Penrose Park shoreline for a taste of green forests and mountain views. It’s worth noting that the tip of the point is still private property. Kayaks and stand-up paddleboards are available for rent from Lakebay Marina for $20 an hour. If paddles aren’t your thing, the water right off the dock is made for summer swimming.

Trails Beckon Penrose Point State Park is a 165-acre park that’s located on Mayo Cove and Carr Inlet that offers plenty of trails to enjoy on a lay-day afternoon. Old madrona (Arbutus menziesii) trees and all kinds of fungi give plenty for the nature lovers among us to fawn over. Mt. Rainier looks great across Delano Bay on a clear day, and dogs are allowed on leash. It’s a bit of a trek around the water from Lakebay Marina, but swimming a few hundred feet from the marina and across the channel lands the explorer in Penrose Point Park just as well. It’s your trip and you can do what you want, right?

Freshwater Dip Bay Lake is a short walk up the road from Lakebay Marina and is a great freshwater swimming hole. Some say there are trout in the lake, others say there’s too much milfoil to tell. We saw at least one angler reel in an eight-incher, so there have to be a few. Regardless, Bay Lake’s proximity to Lakebay Marina makes it an enticing place to take a dip on a hot summer day.

Hit the Links The Trophy Lake Golf & Casting Club is a bit of a schlep, but if you can find Mark Scott he’ll give you a lift for cheap. Trophy Lake features a Pacific Northwest log-cabin style and seeks to blend both fishing and golf into an all-in-one destination that’s got Father’s Day written all over it. The Dry Fly Café serves up Northwest-style meals everyday from 0700 hours to 1400 hours. Trophy Lake is also a convention space that caters to weddings and corporate events.

Anchorage and Docking Anchoring – The amount of available slips is a bit hard to say because the marina practices stern-to-stern and sideby-side rafting docking techniques. Nevertheless, Mark Scott estimates easy moorage for twelve to fifteen vessels of various sizes and more with proper vessel organization. Calling ahead is a good idea (253-884-3350). Daily moorage: $1.00/foot, power additional $6.00/day, or daily rate of $5.00. Monthly moorage: $7.50/foot, plus $25.00 maintenance fee on all boats. Boat launch: $5.00 to launch. Includes in and out and parking. Boat towing: Lakebay Marina is available to help you 24/7, 7-days-a-week. They claim to beat any published marine towing rate by 20%.

New Nautical Coatings, Inc. of Clearwater, Florida was established in 1978 and is dedicated to bringing the highest-quality products to today’s mariner. Sea Hawk paints are manufactured by Nautical Coatings Inc. and are American-made. The Sea Hawk guarantee promises that when certain Sea Hawk paints, including Tony Bulpin’s favorite BioCopTF, are applied by a certified Sea Hawk Applicator in the correct manner described in the technical brochures, the coating will remain intact and not show any barnacle growth on the coating for an entire year (provided the hull is maintained on a monthly basis). That’s a pretty bold claim from a Florida-based paint company! Check them out at seahawkpaints.com.

84 NORTHWEST YACHTING // JUNE 2016

he canon fi re from Opening Day has subsided and summer is in full swing. Families with their boats pack the Ballard Locks and motor out to their favorite Puget Sound destinations while schools of stand-up paddleboards roam Lake Union in the sunshine. But warm water also means more growth on boat hulls and stress on the bott om paint. The bottom-paint industry offers an overwhelming, and sometimes controversial, array of options in which one paint rarely emerges as the end-all choice. Washington is also the fi rst state to introduce a copper ban for all bott om paints by 2020, a move that has major ramifi cations for boaters and the environment. We turned to Tony Bulpin of Sea Hawk Paints for this edition of Ask the Experts. Bulpin covers the West Coast from Alaska to San Diego as a distributor and representative of Sea Hawk Paints. We invited him to our offi ce to share a cup of coff ee and talk business. Q: Where do you personally stand, ablative or hard paints? (Chuckles) I’ve been thinking about this all weekend. When you write this article, all kinds of people are going to disagree because there are a lot of philosophies out there. I know I’m not going to change people. My professional opinion is that ablative paints are typically bett er for the recreational market. Hard paints rely on old technology that is designed to release biocide at

a certain rate and then go dead. You’re then left with a layer of paint with no biocide and over time you get that buildup of hard paint layers. Eventually those layers start popping off . That’s why when you go to a boatyard you can see 50% of the boats have some repair on their hulls. Those boats weren’t properly prepped for the paint job or those hard paints are starting to give way. What I always say is that, by going to a harder ablative paint, you’ll get the best of both worlds. You don’t get the buildup of paint overtime where you have to strip the old layers and start again. Stripping down those paint layers is where the money comes in. Q: How do environmental concerns affect paints, and what factors come into play in the Puget Sound area? We’ve got a lot of fresh, brackish, and saltwater, so you get all of the above. You also get warmer waters up in the Gulf Islands and there can be a lot of hard growth in summer. But for the most part, we’re soft growth. In the summer months you get some hard growth, but winters are longer and days are shorter, so we tend to get soft growth. That’s why I recommend a dual biocide, which means an algaecide and copper element to prevent the hard growth. You know, it’s all about the cost-per-pint of paint for some. But between the fuel economy of having a clean hull and the fewer haul outs you require with

the proper bott om job, the actual paint cost is such a small portion of the total cost. The price of the paint is just the tip of the iceberg. Q: What role should the boatyard play in my bottom-paint choices? Should I do a lot of my own shopping? I say trust the boatyard, but ask a lot of questions. Ask about dual biocides. Ask about copper-free paints. Ask about hard versus ablative. When you ask the questions, it lets the boatyard know that you’re somewhat educated. Ask questions and it shows that you care about what goes on the bott om of your boat. Make sure the boat is prepped properly and that you know everything about the bott om. Is it going to need to be stripped at some point? Does it need an epoxy barrier? I say, “This is our budget; let’s meet once a week on that budget so we’re all on the same page.” You don’t want to get hit by a big bill at the end and have it explained to you why it’s so big. I’ve been surprised at boatyards and I’m the guilty one. I didn’t pay att ention to the process. At the end of the day, if we’re all on the same page as to cost, we’re all happy when the bill comes. The boatyards are there to service your boat. Go to your boatyard and have the boatyard give you a quote fi rst before you make a decision. Q: When should you get a barrier coat? I always recommend a barrier coat when the boat is brought down to [its] gel coat. The reason is that a barrier coat is a hard barrier. Gel coat and fi berglass can be very porous. It doesn’t look porous, but they’ve got a lot of porosity to it. What porosity means is that millions of tiny litt le pinholes exist that att ract moisture. That moisture can create blisters, so I always recommend a barrier coat at a proper mil thickness to be a water barrier between bott om paint and the bottom of the boat. If I were to paint a brand-new boat, I’d use an epoxy barrier coat to encapsulate the bott om and to act as an adhesion promoter. You need to sand the bott om of the boat for that mechanical bond, and then you create a chemical bond from that barrier coat to that bott om paint. A barrier coat is important, I don’t care what boat you say it is. Not just as a barrier, but as an adhesion promoter. There are lots of schools of thought on that, some


believe Vinylester resins will not blister. But, in my opinion, epoxy barrier coats have proven to be the best bott om barrier coat. Make sure you have the proper dry-fi lm thickness. In my experience, that means 10-15 millimeters dry. Q: Any tips with a bottom job for a typical Pacific Northwest yacht? Apply two to three coats of Sea Hawk barrier coat product and two coats of BioCop TF with a third coat at the waterline and wear areas. Your leading edges, your waterline, and your rudder are all wear areas and I recommend a third coat on [those areas]. Q: What makes Sea Hawk’s BioCop TF your favorite product? It’s a dual biocide, meaning it utilizes the traditional copper biocide with zinc almandine algaecide in a harder ablative fi nish. I say it’s the perfect paint for all areas, including South Florida. It’s used on megayachts up here in the Northwest as well. It performs and continues to perform. Our sales in that product are up over 70% this last year. Q: Let’s dive into the copper ban. What does the future look like? What is going to replace copper? There are a lot of products on the horizon, meaning biocides. I AT ELLIOTT BAY MARINA

don’t want to speak to anything specifi c because they’re still being tested, but they’re out there. Copper is a bad thing in high concentrations, but Sea Hawk has stared to reduce the copper. Some states have gone for not a complete ban but a reduction in the release rate of paints. That’s what Sea Hawk is trying to do, to control the release of copper and come up with paints with no copper. We want to make sure that whatever we put into the environment won’t be harmful. We have test panels on our raft in Florida that are performing as good as copper based paint. Sea Hawk has three diff erent copper-free paints (Mission Bay, Smart Solution, and Mission Bay Waterbased) that are all working, they just work diff erently than copper-based paints. With copper-free paints, you will see soft growth, which is a big part of this area. So, it is a bit of a problem. You get soft growth on all the copper-free paints, you just got to be aware that you will see that. And you don’t get the life out of them that you get out of traditional copperbased paints.

The copper ban doesn’t go into eff ect until 2018 for new boats. Any new boats sold in the state of Washington can’t have copper on the bott om. Used boats, or previously coated boats, have until 2020. So you can use copper products until 2020. This is proposed legislation that isn’t law yet, and it could change. I’m not saying that it will, I’m just saying there could be amendments to the legislation. Washington is the only state that has introduced a copper ban. California has introduced copper reduction, but not a ban. Copper is kind of like when you’re hungry and you go to a restaurant and you see that double burger. You think, “Wow! That’s what I want. It’s only $2 more for the second paddy.” But do you need that extra paddy? No. It’s just extra fat. The way Sea Hawk paints are designed, our lower copper load, hard modifi ed epoxy performs just as well as our highest load. We made a higher load because that is what everyone wanted. People thought more copper was bett er. In my experience, more is not necessarily bett er. There is a point of diminishing return.

TONY BULPIN Tony Bulpin is a distributor and representative for Sea Hawk paints and covers the entire West Coast from Alaska to San Diego. He has worked with Sea Hawk for nine years and is a firm believer in the products he sells as both a professional and boater. Bulpin is a proud father of two who got into the maritime business at Seattle’s Fisheries Supply 27 years ago. He evolved into the paint world and started distributing and representing different topside paints. Bulpin then moved into distributing and representing bottom paints with Sea Hawk. He believes in looking at paints “in the real world” and attributes his, and Sea Hawk’s, success to great ongoing relationships with customers and time spent walking the docks to see what works. he can be reached at tony@seahawkpaints.com.

Tony’s Tackle Box Continued from Page 55

However, I really like fishing the beach at Neah Bay, especially in mid-July when the Columbia River kings are passing through, snacking at local restaurants. Glad to meet you and welcome aboard. This is also a year to maintain a sharp focus on fishing for king salmon in the shallow waters of Willapa Bay. Willapa is forecasted to entertain 40,000 king 

salmon that will produce a lot of smiles on anglers’ faces. Fishing is tough in the Bay during big tides as the current can seem to produce more grassy debris than all the wheat farms in eastern Washington. Installing flotation and outboard engines on a wheat combine is an option. Willapa Bay lit up in early August last year and stayed very good into early September. Remember, the best bite always occurs near high slack. Plan to stay a few days and save me a spot if you’re trailering that way.

If you’re a planner like me, this is the last call to develop your summer salmon fishing plans for this tough year for Washington salmon anglers. If none of these suggestions turn your wheel here at home, I’ll see you on the west side of Vancouver Island. Believe me, there is nothing wrong with the Queen’s king salmon! In the meantime, let the spot prawn shrimp season in the eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca and San Juan Islands continue. Mercy! I love shrimp parades! See you on the water! 

On Watch Continued from Page 56

no summer salmon fishing season in Puget Sound. Not only does this sow discontent among a vocal voting bloc (recreational anglers), but it also delivers a blow to the companies that rely on fishing to sell boats and tackle, and the towns supporting the derbies and tourism. Time will tell how this lack of summer salmon fishing in Puget Sound will play out, but it boils down to a lack of agreement between the tribes and the State of Washington. From what I can tell, this situation is very complex. Governor Inslee has to balance an incredible amount of well-organized and vocal interests (most notably the tribes and recreational anglers), and at the fulcrum of this teeter-totter is Judge Boldt’s decision in 1974. Who knows how this will play out, but it would seem that this election-year controversy is not optimal. Then again, Donald Trump is likely going to be at the top of the ticket, which would play well for Democrat’s chances at the polls this November in Washington. As I close this out, have you noticed that campaign mailers are already arriving? Death, taxes, and campaign advertisements, oh my! I’m always blown away by the number of mailings from candidates. I scratch my head as to why smart people would waste thousands of dollars on junk mail. Maybe that mail works or, more likely, campaign consultants, who make money on each piece of mail, have convinced candidates that they work. Regardless, when I get a flyer, I can’t wait to read it. Maybe that’s me. Then again, I set my Sunday alarm for 6 am so I can watch Meet the Press (so you don’t have to.)

Corrections We would like to apologize to our wonderful food columnist Bridget Charters. The last sentence of her piece from our May issue, A Midsummer Night's Gathering, was cut off. It should have read, 'If you end up hosting an impromptu party, put a pot of water on for an Italian fish pasta to satisfy the crowd.'

And, as some have pointed out that our Eagle Harbor Port of Call had a picture of Blakely Harbor instead of Pritchard Park. They were correct, well spotted.


Pets on Boats

“Are we leaving the dock? I’ve got places to be.”

Pearl the Jack Russell terrier is the Pets on Boats star for June. She’s a whirlwind of energy who is a real cuddler after she’s treed a few squirrels. Pearl loves the finer things in life, like sunbathing on the swim step of her mom’s Bayliner 4788 moored at Elliott bay Marina. Pets on Boats is one of Northwest Yachting’s newest departments. The idea is simple: Take a cute or funny photo of your favorite pet aboard your favorite boat, scribble down a funny photo caption, and send it to us at norris@nwyachting.com. We will collect images and captions and then our staff will select the best combination of imagery and words. Each monthly winner will have the honor of seeing his or her photo and caption run in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and we will also set you up with a Northwest Yachting care package. Remember — we’re looking for the best combination of image and words, so grab your favorite four-legged (or winged) crewmember, cast off the docking lines, and get creative with your camera and notepad.
