THE BIG SWITCH

I

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

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

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

FROM THE HELM

Spring Opportunity

I write this on a cloudless, golden day with a chilly consistent breeze out of the Northwest. Yesterday, the clouds socked us in and snow flurries peppered Puget Sound, and I was regaled with stories from friends who made it through Norris Comer the Toliva Shoals Race out of Olympia. Simply completing the course was considered a proper victory due to the heavy, shifting winds and biting cold. The unpredictability and raw energy of the late winter and early spring seas makes my Nordic blood sing. Who wants to languish in a tepid, swampy lagoon somewhere tropical and mountain-less? Not the boaters of the Pacific Northwest, I assure you! This time of year happens to be one of my favorites in the Pacific Northwest, and the hints of the changing season are all around us when we go boating. The first spring Chinook salmon, that most iconic of fish, are pushing into the Columbia River as seasonal migrants fly overhead, notably the elegant trumpeter swans. Now is also prime whale watching season in Puget Sound, and gray whales will once again

grace their favorite spots like Whidbey and Camano islands. I remember fondly a simple ferry trip from Seattle to Bainbridge this time last year where a gray played in our wake the whole ride. Score one point for the people’s yacht. The weekend regattas multiply like the spring rabbits, and sailors once again fill up their schedules from the relative draught of winter. Soon the sails of the racing fleets will color the horizon in force again. In the spirit of spring, I’m joining my fellow boaters with seasonal maintenance to-dos. My Albin Vega Huldra is overdue for her bottom job, and I’m researching the local DIY yards. Here’s hoping bribes of beer and pizza can lure in my friends for a boat project party! I may have to take a page from our cooking columnist, Bridget Charters, who offers hearty soup recipes this month to attract that free labor. Whatever kind of boater you are, do yourself a favor and get out on the water as much as possible this time of year. From my regular boating grounds out of Ballard, the snowy peaks of the Olympics make a sunny day a proper postcard. There’s plenty of moorage this time of year to boot, for the summer crowds think this time of year is too early. Their loss!

Annual Check In: Ruston Point $1 Billion to Boat Friendly Tacoma Development Nears Completion By Eva Seelye

Tacoma Yacht Club (TYC) lies in the center of a massive construction project to revamp the Ruston Point area of Tacoma’s waterfront as part of a larger $1 billion Point Defiance Park project. The peninsula’s $60 million plan, that began construction in 2015, has less than a year until completion. What was once a Superfund site and home to Asarco Lead and Copper Smelter will be a green landscape full of entertainment and activities. Atkinson Construction, accompanied by subcontractor KLB Construction, is converting this once contaminated area into an extensive 23-acre hillside waterfront park during phase one of construction. When complete, the peninsula attraction will boast a plaza pavilion, a gatehouse building, a storage building, site lighting, and other amenities and furnishings surrounded by landscaped terrain that will trap contaminated soils to protect Puget Sound waters.

Atkinson is known for their work on I-90 along Snoqualmie Pass East and other transportation infrastructure projects up and down the West Coast. The soil nail wall above one of TYC’s parking lots was installed last February, making final trail grading possible. There’s also a 600’ pedestrian bridge linking Ruston Way Path with Point Defiance Park for better park access. Now walkers, runners, and bicyclists can meander from downtown Tacoma along Puget Sound, passing restaurants, breweries, picnic areas, an old fireboat, and many more attractions on their way to TYC or onward to Point Defiance and its newly renovated zoo (another aspect of the construction project). Up, but not quite open to the public, the new pedestrian bridge can be seen from the top floor of TYC, with a view of the ferry starboard. Boaters can also enjoy improved access to existing

boathouse gangways with a new boattrailer parking lot. Following the newly paved pathway through the debris and early landscape design of the peninsula’s park, the beginnings of three amphitheaters appear – the future site of public events, concerts, and other festivities. Tacoma Yacht Club’s Commodore Jim Martinek recalls his initial thoughts on the clean-up project, entertaining the idea of a new landscape venue representing the TYC. “To say we are ready for the construction to be completed is an understatement,” Jim remarks. Despite the mess, grass has begun to grow where it hadn’t before, encouraging the return of local fauna. “The building now looks like it belongs to the surrounding area,” says Jim, as he snaps a quick photo of the bald eagle named “Starboard” perched on the club's flag pole. TYC organized in 1889, just weeks before Washington became the 42nd state, beginning the club house’s long history of accomplishments, setbacks, and revivals. Through economic disaster, relocation, automobile incorporation that drew business away from water recreation, an exploding yacht, and even a blizzard, TYC remained open, active, and thriving. The club sees improvements every year with the most recent, of course, being Continued on Page 18

Cruisers College Seminars for Boaters and Aspiring Boaters Alike By Eva Seelye

Boating isn’t always an easy cruise, so Waggoner Cruising Guide has teamed up with Skagit Valley College to further your boating knowledge. They are offering a series of boat-related classes to men and women every second week of the month to encourage boating engagement and education. Develop your skills further or learn something brand new at each unique course from equipment how-to’s and weather workshops to destination seminars and instruction in DIY techniques. This month offers two class options for a fee of $45. The first seminar is designed to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of your outboard engine. Skagit Valley College instructor Matt Mardesich will touch on oil changes, fuel care and

handling, lower unit testing, water pump impeller replacement, electrical systems, routine maintenance and tune-up, and winterization in this three-hour course. The class starts at 1300 hours on March 10. Discover the full capabilities your marine radar at the second seminar of the month on March 11 at 0900 hours. In addition to learning marine radar basics, Mark Bunzel (editor and publisher of Waggoner Cruising Guide) will also cover the new digital radar technologies and their abilities, how to use your digital marine radar system while underway, and how to interpret the screen display while correlating it to navigational charts, the surrounding area, and other vessels nearby. It’s important to note that this is Part 2 of a two-part course, but if you missed the first, don’t fret! Mark will begin with a review of the capabilities of the newly available digital radar systems as well as the additional information integrated into these new radar systems. Each seminar is held at the NW Center for Excellence for Marine Manufacturing & Technology in Anacortes, Wash. March’s Cruiser’s College Seminars require a fee of $45. See the Waggoner Guide’s website at waggonerguide.com for seminars through May.

the long-anticipated EPA peninsula remediation project. After completion of the club house in 1971, it took many years until the site could be capped and then cleaned. The park will see its tail end of construction towards the end of summer, but that’s not stopping TYC’s long list of exciting spring and summer activities! Locals and visitors alike can head down to the tip of Ruston Point for fun, including live music Friday and Saturday nights, test their knowledge on trivia night, indulge in a delicious meal, or spend the day lost in the view of the Olympic Mountains across the Sound on a clear day. Check out the TYC at their open house on March 26 at 1400 hours, sign up for the spring Cruise to Poulsbo, or check out their biggest event of the year: The Daffodil Marine Festival and Parade! Over 175 boats from Everett to Olympia gather every year at TYC for opening day of boating in one of the premier boating events in the Puget Sound. Boats decorated head to toe showcase the character and leadership of their club. The weekend-long celebration will take over Ruston Point regardless of final construction activities on April 13, 14, and 15. We’ll see ya there!

The Only Maintenance Book You Need Nigel Calder’s Boatowner’s Mechanical and Electrical Manual By Greg Van Belle

With longer days and even the occasional break in the clouds and rain, it is time to start looking forward to more time on the water, and that means tackling onboard projects and maintenance jobs. For me, most projects start with phone calls to everyone I know at the marina and yacht club. Has anyone worked on hydraulic steering? Who knows something about wiring a generator or installing electronics? When those overtures fail, or when I am away from the dock when something goes wrong, I turn to the expert: Nigel Calder.

Now in its fourth edition, Nigel Calder’s Boatowner’s Mechanical and Electrical Manual is an indispensable companion for just about every problem you might encounter onboard. I use Calder’s book as a reference these days, but I must confess that when the new edition hit my desk I poured a drink and settled into read it from the beginning. Calder’s writing is accessible, readable, and clear. He peppers the technical with the personal and explains processes and procedures with a clarity that eludes a lot of other marine authors.

The bulk of the text is written from a teacher’s perspective. Calder explains the theories underpinning the systems. He helps you understand how things work rather than just walking you through step-by-step processes for specific tasks. As a case in point, I was recently in the bilge of our boat trying to uncover a 12-volt issue that had been causing us problems for weeks. Our early guess was that we had a bad battery or two in the system or that the alternator was bad. The dollar signs that come Continued on Page 24

Answer Your Boating Safety Questions By Eva Seelye

Join the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary (USCGA) Saturday, March 17, from 09:00 hours to 15:00 hours at West Marine’s Portland, Oregon flagship store to have all your boating safety questions answered by the experts. Learn which life vest is right for you, which electronic flares satisfy safety requirements, and if your boat will be fined when stopped for a safety inspection. But that’s not all that’s in store for attendees. Bring your boat for a free inspection by the USCGA. If you’re somehow not quite on board, a representative from Navico Marine Electronics will be offering two sonar seminars a day (at 11:00 hours and the other at 13:00 hours on March 17 and 18) and will be available to answer any marine electronics set-up and operation questions you may have tucked up your captain’s hat. So mark your calendars, hit the road, and get her done—you’ll be safer on the water.

Sometime between January 31 and February 1, 2018, the engine room of Mitsui's commercial cargo ship MOL Prestige caught fire while en route from Vancouver, Canada, to Tokyo, Japan. The fire occurred two days into its voyage. Five crew were injured putting out the fire, three severely enough to be evacuated by helicopter. All other mariners of the 23-member crew were reported safe. The ship was without power and set adrift about 207 nautical miles SW of Haida Gwaii. The disabled ship was towed back to port by the Denise Foss tug and arrived in the Port of Seattle on February 11, 2018. U.S. Coast Guard sector Puget Sound investigators and senior investigators with the Transportation and Safety Board of Canada boarded the 876’ MOL Prestige on February 12, 2018, as part of the preliminary investigation into the cause of the fire.

Cocktail of the Month

The Bloody Caesar “Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer said to Caesar, a scene dramatized on the stage in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. March 15 is upon us, and for humanities lovers, an appropriate drink is in order. The Bloody Caesar may be familiar to the Canadian pallet, as it is more commonly served up there.

Astoria Oil Spill

By Evin Moore

The U.S. Coast Guard is finishing its clean-up of an oil spill on the Columbia River first reported on January 18, 2018 near the Cannery Pier Hotel in Astoria, Washington. The source of the oil was at first unknown; dangerous conditions made it difficult for divers to search under the pier. When conditions improved, the source of the oil was determined to be a punctured 16'-by-6'oil tank underneath a pier. The dilapidated pier fell on the tank, piercing it and causing the spill. The tank, whose existence was unknown to the hotel, was installed in 1921 and used to fire cannery boilers. The leaking tank, removed on January 30, contained over 2,200 gallons of bunker oil. This oil was removed by the Coast Guard, as well as 3,400 feet of contaminated hard boom. Approximately 6,150 gallons of an oily water mixture was removed with skimmers and a vacuum truck. The Coast Guard, working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, reported there has been minimal impact on vegetation and no accounts of contaminated animals. Clean-up has taken over 6,800 man hours; 2,160 of those from the Coast Guard and 4,700 from contractors. The Coast Guard left containment boom and an absorbent boom in place, and the booms will likely remain there for months. Twenty cubic yards of oil-contaminated material was removed; the marina-side seawall was decontaminated and the oil on the riverside seawall will be left to breakdown naturally. The Coast Guard continues to monitor the clean-up as the absorbent boom collects oil. The total cost of the spill is estimated at $900,000, which will be covered by the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund.

March Madness for Gray Whales

ODOR-FREE

By Norris Comer

The beginning of March is widely regarded as the start of gray whale season here in the Pacific Northwest, with Puget Sound acting as a prime viewing location. Grays hold a special place in the fabric of Pacific Northwest culture, as they are a coastal species of baleen (vs. toothed) whale that annually travels from Mexico’s winter breeding grounds to Alaska’s summer feeding grounds. To the delight of observers in the Pacific Northwest, females often have a calf in tow while heading up north this time of year. Their arrival between March and May is one of nature’s signals of spring’s arrival, not unlike the tulips of Skagit County, Washington or the spring Chinook runs. Gray whales, unlike most other baleen whales that pursue swarms of plankton or small fish in the water column, are bottom feeders that sift through large mouthfuls of mud. With large adults reaching lengths of around 50' and a weight of around 36 tons, they are said to typically live between 55 and 75 years. Within Puget Sound, Saratoga Passage on the east side of Whidbey Island is a magnet for grays, and ferry goers on the Mukilteo Ferry often luck out with a sighting. Online, orcanetwork.org is a continually updated crowdsourced resource for whale fans. For boaters, it’s important to respect the law and space of the animals. If you see boaters harassing the whales, please straighten them out with a hail on the VHF. If they continue, report the incident to National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Enforcement at 1-800-853-1964. Be sure to take pictures and be ready to describe the vessel.

Stay on the water longer. Fewer pumpouts are needed with Dometic’s low-water-use MasterFlush™ (0.7 liters) and VacuFlush® (0.3 liters) toilet systems. Dometic’s OdorSafe® Plus hose and innovative holding tank ECO Vent Filter combine to provide a marine sanitation system that is odor-free from start to finish.

Bell Harbor may have had some blustery days, but buyers were out in force.

Seattle Boat Show Reports Positive Growth By Norris Comer

The 71st annual Seattle Boat Show concluded on Saturday, February 3, and the 2.1% increase in attendance over last year is a great reason for the industry to celebrate. The nine-day event attracted 52,928 visitors this year, compared to the 51,864 from last year. The data indicate that visitors hailed from 43 states, fi ve Canadian provinces, and from overseas countries like Australia. The event is organized by the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA). “We were very pleased to see an increase in attendance,” said George Harris, President/

CEO of the NMTA, in a press release. “Attendees showed up with enthusiasm, ready to shop, plan, and prepare for every type of boating in the Northwest, and the reports from our exhibitors are some of the most positive we’ve seen in years.” The precise reason for the show’s uptick in attendance is anybody’s guess. The addition of the Bell Harbor in-water location was a success, according to exhibitor Ashley Harper, the Creative and Marketing Director for Alexander Marine USA. “The 2018 Seattle Boat Show proved to be our most success-

Norris, I'm the old guy who spoke with you at your booth during the Seattle Boat Show about the fact our boat, Folly, was the motor vessel setting at slip A-14 in Bell Harbor Marina on the cover of your January 2018 Northwest Yachting magazine. You said at the time you might be able to get us a framed or frameable copy of the picture. Alice and I would appreciate that very much. We cruise to Bell Harbor many times each year. It is such a wonderful location I don't understand why it isn't constantly full. I picked up copies of the December '17 and February '18 magazines while at your booth and as I read them I was reminded what great strides the magazine has made in the past two years. It is now a great read and not just a collection of ads. Congratulations! Best Wishes for Continued Success, —Dick Nelson VOLU

Ed: Thank you for the follow up, Dick! I’m glad we immortalized Folly on our cover. The photo is the work of local Seattle Photographer Rick Parchen— we refer you to him for a print without our logo (parchenphotography.com), but we'll try to get you a print of the cover as it appeared. In the meanwhile, we’ll keep busting our butts over here to put this magazine together, perhaps our own way of immortalizing Folly (of course I jest). Enjoy the read and I hope to see you out on the water one of these days. Also, readers who do find their boat in the magazine should feel free to write in. At the very least, we can usually provide a digital PDF file for your own use. Even though we’re in the biz, the rush of seeing you or your boat in the magazine is universal. Why not have a keepsake?

Technically, she is Reichel-Pugh designed and McConaghy built custom build. Comer confused her with Absolutely, the Farr39 he hops aboard more regularly. The magazine life is clearly taking its toll and extensive medical examinations reveal that, although he is 28, his brain during the two years with this publication has degraded significantly. He humbly seeks forgiveness for his trespass and thanks the crew for letting him aboard the Winter Vashon Race. The beers are on him for a while. The mistake has been corrected in the digital edition. We have a tweak to make in our Nautical News article Clippers Ride Again (pg. 16). Nicola (Nikki) Henderson is the youngest, but not the first woman, to win a race with the event. The correction has been made in the digital edition.

Lindell 42 Navigator Many of the local Pacific Northwest builders are flourishing in the current bullish boat industry market, and Camano Island-based Lindell Yachts is one such example. Fresh off the Seattle Boat Show, with two additional build orders on the books, the Lindell 42 Navigator is a fishing yacht to keep an eye on. And yes, we stand by the “fishing yacht” categorization, for the 42 is one of the few boats on the market that is equal parts fishing machine and luxury ride. On the rough and ready side, the 42 features the classic Pacific Northwest fishing “attack” cabin shape. Also included are standard eight Rocket Launch rod holders mounted to the aft top rail located above the open work deck that sports state-of-the-art fish holds (complete with macerator pumps for water management systems). There’s even an infused 120-gallon lighted, recirculated live well with

pump that should keep the hooks baited with the good stuff for extended trips. With twin Volvo IPS drives, the 42 can really haul it too. Sea trial data supplied by the manufacturer indicates a top speed of around 40 knots, with a more typical cruising speed of around 30 knots. The other side of the 42 is that of a proper yacht, complete with a fiberglass hull and fine interior teak trimmings. Two large staterooms are standard aboard, both with generous queen-sized berths (one aft and one forward). An enclosed head, complete with walk-in shower, is located near the forward stateroom. The salon is spacious and well-lit (thanks to the many cabin windows) with a long table and bench-style seating port and complete galley starboard. Two padded chairs sit at the helm, positioned on either side of the companionway that leads forward and down to the staterooms and head.

The exterior is also a blend of fancy and fun. The expansive cockpit/working deck aft has the space and accommodations for a fishing derby crew, yet also the swim step of an island-hopping cruiser. Walkways with high rails for safety lead forward to a large foredeck, probably the best view in the house when underway on a calm day. The Lindell 42 Navigator seems to have accomplished its goal of marrying the comforts of yachting with the performance and utilitarian emphasis of comparablysized fishing boats. When one considers that cruising and fishing are two of the Pacific Northwest’s boating specialties, it’s easy to imagine why this boat is selling. If interested in more information or pricing, check out lindellyachts.com. Inside Passage Yacht Sales (insidepassageyachtsales.com), the local dealer, lists the base price at $799,000.

Hinckley Picnic Boat 37 MK III The handsome Picnic Boat 37 Mark III from Hinckley Yachts caught our eye at the recent Seattle Boat Show, and we had to take a closer look. This boat has the look and feel of a classic – Burmese teak and traditional lines – with the functionality and convenience of a modern yacht, like a jet propulsion system, joystick controls, and composite hull. Hinckley Yachts picnic boats started around 25 years and 450 hulls ago. The newest Mark III is lighter by 1,000 lbs. (partially thanks to modern manufacturing techniques) and is powered by dual-aluminum block, 370-horsepower Yanmar inboard diesel V-8 engines. While the classification

as a “picnic boat” may conjure up images of lackadaisical lake puttering, the manufacturer boasts a nippy 32-knot cruising speed, with a maximum speed of 35 knots. Hold onto your picnic baskets! The shallow draft and design of the hull is ideal for poking around secluded bays. This is also possible thanks to the unique jet propulsion system on board. Once aboard, the Mark III’s teak-trimmed charm fully takes hold. The open cockpit leads forward to a foldable dining table situated under a hardtop cover. Just about every nook and cranny blends into seating and entertaining space. Two chairs and a helm station flank the companionway

Specs LOA: 36’ 11” • Beam: 33’ 10” • Draft: 2’ 1” Displacement (Full load): 16,100 lbs. Tankage (Fuel/Fresh/Black): 220 gals./40 gals./28 gals. Local Dealer: Hinckley Yachts, Pacific Coast Sales Department, 760-579-2431

that leads down and into the cabin. The accommodations below are warm, again partially thanks to the woodwork, and geared toward a couple’s weekend getaway. A galley, enclosed head, and suite with large V-berth is all down there. Although an East Coast boat, there’s something reminiscent of the iconic Lake Union Dreamboats that plied these waters in the 1920s. But the similarities end with the aesthetics, for the modern aspects of the Hinckley Picnic Boat Mark III 37 are all about offering that perfect day (or days) out on the water for the owner and guests. If interested, check out hinckleyyachts.com for more information and contacts. The base price is $884,900.

Four Winns Vista 275 The Four Winns line of motor boats charges into the new year with the 2018 iteration of their popular Vista 275. This boat is more than your normal runabout with plenty of entertainment-related features to maximize time on the Columbia River or Lake Washington and runs to the San Juans. The open cockpit resembles a Swiss Army knife in that most aspects of the seating arrangement can be folded, tilted, swiveled, combined, etc. Bench seating transforms into a sumptuous lounger and a wingman seat can be deployed near the racecar-style helm station to keep the skipper company. Also on deck is a wet bar with fridge, 110-volt electric grill, sink, and storage and access to the large swim step aft. Below in the cabin is where the 275 proves it can be a very capable weekender. An enclosed head, foldable table with seat-

ing that transforms into a large berth, and a full galley are all down there, far more than the sleek modern styling of the exterior would suggest at initial glance. As far as the guts are concerned, the new 2018 iteration is powered by a 350-horsepower gas MerCruiser inboard. The manufacturer claims a cruising speed of 26 knots and a maximum speed of about 35 knots.

Life Proof Boats GT Coupe Bremerton, Washington-based Life Proof Boats, a brand from Inventech Marine Solutions, always seem to catch the eye. Perhaps we can chalk it up to the bright, patented foam collars and almost paramilitary aluminum stylings? Whatever the reason, these intense performance boats come in a variety of designs, with the company primarily touting its custom-build capabilities. Many of their production build models are tearing up the waters these days, and more new designs are being schemed up in their factory as this is written. Among the new builds for 2018 is the GT Coupe, set to launch this spring. The GT Coupe has many of Life Proof Boat’s hallmarks—the bright foam collar, arrow-like performance design, and aluminum build—but with a few yacht concessions. Prominently, the open cockpit is laid out around a round dining table with benchstyle seating along the transom, essentially a tried and true runabout design. A large swim step also serves as the mount for the

dual outboard engines, rated to a maximum horsepower of 700. An open hardtop covers more seating and the helm station forward, and a companionway leads to the modest cabin forward. One gets the impression that the skipper could round the San Juans over the weekend in comfort. Also notable is the drop bow door, fast becoming a Life Proof Boats signature. The bow door turns the shallow-draft GT Coupe into something of a beach invasion specialist. Simply ease the boat onto the shoreline of choice, lower the bow door, and guests can enjoy the new destination anchor—and dinghy-free. Standard Life Proof Boat features include self-bailing decks, nonskid decking, and stainless-steel hardware. The Life Proof Boats GT Coupe is a Frankenstein’s monster in a sense—part AT ELLIOTT BAY MARINA

Hanse 588 The German Hanse sailboat line continues to innovate, and the Hanse 588 appears to be no exception. Having originally premiered in Europe during the autumn of 2017, the build has now crept over to the North American market and Pacific Northwest. An evolution from the popular 545, the 588 has enjoyed critical acclaim in the recent months. The first impression is that of a consummate plumb-bow, Euro-style performance cruiser that combines elements of a racer with the primary emphasis of luxury accommodations. Immediately noticeable is the optional hardtop that offers protection from the elements, boom management, and railed handrails for support. The hardtop does distract from the build’s otherwise wideopen, flat deck that often defines a Hanse, and it comes down to a judgement call for the owner. The center of the hardtop

is retractable to let the sun shine onto the cockpit entertainment space. The 588 also features some modern sailing benefits, like a self-tacking jibe, a patented simplified trim/reefing system, and a second forestay. The hull has a few fin keel options as well, suited to different cruising lifestyles. Immediately noticeable on deck are the sporty dual helms (with individual nav stations), maximized seating arrangements, and deployable swim step off the stern. The woodwork on the deck is gorgeous, and if ordering a custom build, you can choose either synthetic or authentic teak (depending on how much maintenance you want to do). There’s even an integrated island BBQ grill, sink, and optional refrigerator in the cockpit. This sailboat is clearly meant to entertain guests. Below, the interior takes full advantage of the generous beamy design with a large,

open layout. The new woodwork and ample window lighting make for a living room feel with a gigantic galley and plenty of entertainment space. The standard layout has a massive forward stateroom with an island berth and two double berths aft. However, the builder does offer options to tweak the berthing arrangement if desired. A buyer can also choose between a three- or four-head layout, a choice not offered for most yachts of this size. Hanses are popular for plenty of logical reasons: an emphasis of comfort, smart innovations, many custom options, and an all-around great look and feel. The Hanse 588 appears to carry on that torch into 2018. If interested in more information or pricing, feel free to check out the website of local dealer JK3 Yachts Sales, jk3hanse.com. Base price is listed at $598,600 delivered to Seattle.

Super Duty Sea-Doo Sea-Doo GTX Limited 300 Water Craft / $15,899.00 If you’re craving the chance to explore remote areas that larger boats can’t reach, or just want to feel the wind on your face as you pull back on the throttle, Sea-Doo has a new luxury toy that you might like. The 2018 GTX Limited 300 is the latest in Sea-Doo’s line of luxury water craft. Designed to perform and keep its riders comfortable at the same time, the GTX 300 features flexible seating for up to three people, a swim/sun bathing platform, and ski pylons with a tow hook. The 2018 model sits on the ST3 hull that claims improved stability over previous designs, while retaining the speed of past hulls. Modular seating allows the riders to separate seats

to clip in a cooler for a picnic lunch or remove a seat and increase the size of the swim/sun bathing platform. A storage space below the handle bars has a watertight compartment for your phone and a USB charging port. Bring your phone along and connect with Bluetooth to the waterproof audio system on board. The GTX 300 features several throttle responses: the touring mode for a smooth acceleration, sport mode for maximum

pick-up, and the eco mode for optimal fuel economy. A Rotax 1630 ACE engine provides 300 hp and a top speed of 65 mph, while the Intelligent Braking and Reverse system allows the GTX 300 to stop faster and smoother than any previous model. Bottom line: The GTX 300 isn’t your grandpa’s Sea-Doo. If the maneuverability, speed, and independence of a personal watercraft speaks to you, check out sea-doo.com for more info. Models start from $15,899.

Lather up for Injury Relief Lucas’ Papaw Ointment / $8.00

Stubbed a toes and rope burn happen to the best of us. Injuries—no matter how minor—seem to be unavoidable in a boater’s lifestyle. Maybe you use the infamous Neosporin and hydrogen peroxide duo, an absolutely surefire way to deal with cuts and scratches; but you might want to give Lucas’ Papaw Ointment a try. Its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties make it the ideal all-inclusive candidate for treating a multitude of minor injuries that occur too often on board your vessel. Lucas’ Papaw Ointment treats the usual cuts, minor open wounds, and insect bites, along with splinter and thorn-related injuries, gravel and nappy rashes, chafing, minor burns and scalds, and even chapped lips and sunburns.

46 NORTHWEST YACHTING || MARCH 2018

Lucas’ Papaw Ointment’s ingredients include fermented papaya from Queensland, Australia, a base of pharmaceutical grade petroleum jelly and wax, and a small amount of Balsam of Peru for perfume. The century-old formula was developed by Dr. T.P. Lucas, out of Brisbane, Australia, to treat numerous types of illnesses and disease. Not much has changed over the years (recipe-wise), except for its continued tenacity to keep boaters (and every other hard-working, injuryprone individual) on their feet doing what they love most. Four sizes are available for purchase: 15g tube, 25g tube, 75g jar, and a 200g jar. You can find it online for about $8.00.

Inflate, Paddle, Surf, Roll Cascade™ Series SUPs Aquaglide / $699.95 The new stand up paddleboard (SUP) Cascade™ Series by Aquaglide captures several trends in this popular industry and one model even goes beyond the SUP category. The series of inflatable SUP boards boasts high-quality and high-density drop stitch material rated for pressures up to 18 psi. In addition to their high-pressure capabilities—making them comparable to hardshell boards of the industry—they’re also reinforced with PVC layers for extra stiffness and durability, complete with a diamond-grooved EVA deckpad. But our favorite of the series is the Cascade WindSUP; it’s an all in one SUP board and windsurf board—multipurpose at its finest. This particular product includes an integrated mast base pinhole to trade out your paddle for a windsurf sail on those breezy days. Each SUP board of the Cascade Series is a great travel buddy. Roll it up and pack it into the included Crossroads DLX Backpack

to store on board in a tight space or to carry on your hike to a lake or river. Then, break out your Red Double Action Pump —also included in your SUP package—for some ocean, lake, or river paddling; or windsurfing. Nicked a fin? The series’ US fin box not only improves board stiffness, but also makes for easy replacements, as it accepts most readily available fins on the market. The tribal-inspired design is featured on all three SUP boards with a variation on the WindSUP. The smallest of the bunch at 10’ is aimed for kids to medium-weight paddlers and comes in teal. The next size up at 11’ floats those up to 230 pounds and features blue accents. The last of the SUPs at 12’ is perfect for tracking, speed, and stability for all riders. Its red color contrasted against blue waters is truly eye-catching! The Cascade Series is available at aquaglide.com starting at $699.95.

Clean Water, Peace of Mind

Acuva LED-UV Water Purifier / $649.00+

There are almost 20 million illnesses caused each year by unclean water in the U.S. alone, so why not have an extra line of defense? The LED-UV water purification system from Acuva uses a composite filter and UV radiation to destroy bacteria and viruses before they can make you sick. The Acuva was designed for use in RVs, boats, and cottages; just install the composite filter and LED-UV unit under your sink and turn it on. The composite filter removes chemicals for a more pleasant taste and the LED-UV

kills 99.9% of pathogens by using high-energy ultraviolet light to alter their DNA, disrupting their internal systems. LED lights have a five- to tenyear lifespan on average, and over that time the Acuva could purify the equivalent of thousands of water bottles, preventing waste and saving you money. LED-UV technology is considered the future of water purification because of its cost, low environmental impact, durability, and the absence of chemicals. Find out more at acuvatech.com. Products starting from $649 and up.

Wet-It! superabsorbent cloths are leaving the smelly dish rag and sponges behind. Wash dishes, wipe counters, polish chrome, dust, and get a streak-free shine on your mirrors with one of these durable and multipurpose cloths. When it needs a good clean, just stick the cloth on the top shelf of your dishwasher, throw it in your washing machine, or pop it in the microwave for a couple minutes while wet. Our favorite part – besides its compact napkin-resembling nature when dry—is the lack of smell. This cloth does not stink! When wet, it can soak up to 15 times its weight—that’s about 16 sheets of paper towels. So, you’re not just saving money, you’re saving trees, and us Pacific Northwest folks love a good green product! It’s also 100% biodegradable, breaking down in just six weeks in a home compost or 16 weeks in a commercial landfill. Each cloth lasts for up to six months in a standard home, so with two, you’re set for an entire year. The Wet-It! collection offers 14 categories of varying colors and designs. Choose a design based on the season, a crab or lobster cloth for your vessel from the Sea Life category, or just a colorful design for your year-round needs. Find their full inventory on their website wetcloths.com. Purchase your own superabsorbent cloth online from $3.95 in the U.S.

Quench Your Thirst Nuun Hydration Tablets Just because you're drinking water, it doesn't necessarily mean that you're fully hydrated. H2O is only half the battle; getting enough electrolytes is the other half. Electrolytes are needed to produce chemical reactions within the body, but the body loses electrolytes through sweating. A glass of water replaces fluid lost, but not necessarily key electrolytes. Low electrolyte levels are often the cause of muscle spasms and cramping after exercising or spending a hot day on the water. Nuun Hydration Tablets replace lost electrolytes and keep you moving longer than just water alone. Throw a Nuun tablet into a bottle

/ $14.99 - 24.99

of water or a glass of tap water to make an instant energy drink whereever you are. Each tablet contains four electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium, and calcium), one gram of dextrose to increase the speed of absorption, vitamin C, and plant-based sweeteners of monk fruit and stevia leaf extract, which give a light sweetness. Nuun products are made in the U.S. and are certified vegan, gluten-, and GMO-free. So, if you have a marathon coming up, a day of errands, or an afternoon on deck, pick up some Nuun tablets to go the extra mile. Nuun is available at more than 5,000 outlets in the U.S.

Dry As Can Be Ugo Dry Bag / $149.00 With all the boating apps incorporated into our everyday marine lives, we may need to have a completely waterproof life jacket to keep our precious smartphones and personal items safe, afloat, and accessible. Ugo’s 100% waterproof Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) material and new-age zipper technology comes together in this waterproof-rated, compact dry bag for an overall safe, snug, and most importantly, dry smartphone solution on rough seas. The external zipper uses TIZIP® technology similar to those found on dry suits and hazmat suits. According to the manufacturer,

the Ugo zippers are tested to handle up to 10,000 zipper pulls, which sounds pretty durable to us. Unzip the dry bag to find dedicated sections for your keys, chapstick, and three to six credit card holders depending on your preferred style, with an additional inside zipper pocket commonly used for cash or medication. Boating is a given, but also consider taking it kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, or paddle boarding and submerging it underwater for

some killer photos below the surface. The case also allows smartphone use while enclosed in the dry bag so you can talk, text, take a selfie, or film a video, no matter the adventure. Some of the models feature a handy metal ring that can be affixed to a lifejacket, belt, or whatever is most convenient for the user. If the turbulent waters push your Ugo phone case 15’ below the surface, the airtight design should ensure a dry return to the surface. The case also functions in temperatures ranging between negative 20 and plus 120 degrees Farenheit, not a problem for sea level in the Pacific Northwest. The Ugo dry bag comes in five colors—the classic black/ green as well as blue/green, black/black, /orange/black, and camo/orange, and fits all smartphone models. Ugo dry bags can be purchased online from $149.00 at ugowear.com.

The Best Bags, Dry and Cool Isiga Ice Cube Bag / $1.79

A lighter, more convenient alternative to a traditional ice cube tray, the Isiga disposable ice cube bag from Ikea may find a place in your galley. The Isiga is a polyethylene bag that is filled from a tap or water pitcher and seals when it is turned upside down quickly. Simply pop the bag in the freezer until ice forms, then remove it and pull the sides away from the cubes. Break the ice into individual

cubes and use them however you need. Use a handful of cubes in a drink or fill up a couple bags to load up a cooler. When you're done, just recycle the bag like a respondsible Earth dweller. Whether you're traveling, or you want a little less clutter on board, think about picking up a 10- pack of disposable Isiga Ice Bag. The Isiga is available for $1.79 at ikea.com.

Wander Wet Bags / $32.00+ These water-resistant bags are designed to keep your phone, tablet, keys, wallet, and other essential items out of harm’s way. They are great for use any time you’re around water, whether on a boat, at the pool, beach, or lake.

App Spotlight VesselView Mobile App/ Free for iOS & Android Owners of Mercury outboard engines made in 2004 or later, lend us your ears! The new VesselView Mobile App (free) coupled with the corresponding Bluetooth module ($275) gives the user the complete engine monitoring capabilities of large integrated systems. Installation is easy, simply plug the module into the diagnostic port of your Mercury engine. When you start the engine, the device should light up to indicate that it is ready to operate. The module then sends vital engine information in real time via Bluetooth directly to your smartphone or tablet (works on both iOS and Android platforms). Once the app is opened, the smart device and Bluetooth module communicate. The phone’s GPS capabilities enhances the value of the data coming from the engine, and can help manage fuel, provide navigational knowledge, etc. The app keeps track of engine hours, can give service alerts, and more. If the engine has an issue, the app also acts as a sort of phantom mechanic to provide advice and limited diagnostic input. The VesselView Mobile App and Bluetooth module combination is a peek at what may become the standard boating technology of the future. If interested, you can learn more at mercury.vesselviewmobile.com.

Hilton's/ Free for iOS

Skipper/ Free for iOS & Android

The novel Hilton's app may be familiar to the fishingminded among us, both commercial and recreational. This app works in conjunction with the well-known hiltonsoffshore.com website that constantly updates weather, sea surface temperatures (SST), altimetry, chlorophyll, currents, and more fishing-related data. Seasoned fisherpeople know that the lives of their quarry are determined by physical parameters of Mother Nature. For example, the albacore you seek aren’t milling around the ocean at random, they are voraciously seeking food at “the edge” between cold and warm water bodies. Successful anglers utilize that precious SST data to find that edge and rake in those derby wins. The Hilton's app is another tool to aid in that endeavor, bringing the critical information right into the user’s pockets. One drawback of this cross website and mobile app system is that if the smart device can’t access the internet, info is not updated. However, the user can download and save charts for later use on the water in noreception land. If you pay the Hilton’s subscription fee, they offer a satellite phone service that will give you the newest data developments for those multiday trips. Works with iOS 5.0 or higher, $200 for the Hilton's subscription fee.

Among the many great navigational apps competing for the spotlight these days is the Skipper app, a popular and affordable option that’s been around for a while and has experienced constant updates. With Skipper, you can download NOAA raster charts (not vector charts), set waypoints, make custom routes, and more. The customizable monitor bar at the bottom of the screen can set display data like GPS coordinates, current speed, heading, ETA, and just about anything trip-related you can think of. Of course, Google satellite maps can be overlaid with the raster charts to provide a user-friendly aesthetic. While the basic version of Skipper is free, the consensus is that it’s worth the $9.99 annual fee for the upgraded version. The $9.99 annual subscription fee still ranks this app as one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, navigation app of its kind on the market today. Dollar for dollar, Skipper may just be on top. Compatible with iOS 5.0 or higher and Android.

Low Rider Kymeta Flat Panel Antenna Users of onboard satellite technology are familiar with parabolic “dish” antennas, often housed within large domes. For the uninitiated, these conspicuously mounted units sit on the highest point of a yacht and resemble clusters of giant futuristic eggs. The brand-new flat-panel satellite antenna from Redmond, Washington-based Kymeta Corp. seeks to change not only the appearance of antennas, but also transform satellite networking. Does this finally mean we can access TV, internet, cell phones, and more at sea indefinitely? Are all the tech terms just marketing jargon or is this antenna the real deal? Right off the bat, the design of the Kymeta antenna has a few notable advantages. For one, the flat, low-profile octagonal panel simplifies installation significantly. No moving parts is also a plus, making a simpler unit without vulnerable and loud mechanical components to worry about. The more compact design has Kymeta Corp. even talking about putting the panels on cars. Pragmatically, the flat antenna leaves a good first impression. The antenna’s hightech guts use thin-film transistor (TFT) technology that employs software communications rather than traditional mechanisms. The tested TFT technology is on display on LCD TVs everyday but does not typically make an appearance inside a satellite antenna, and Kymeta’s utilization is certainly novel and forward thinking. The software driven approach

54 NORTHWEST YACHTING || MARCH 2018

should translate to faster signal acquisition and tracking speed. If the software driven thing sounds gimmicky to you, it isn’t, and a published paper sponsored by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) goes into length about the clear benefits of software-defined satellite networking (Yang etc. al, 2016). Bottom line: spec-wise, the Kymeta is as high-tech as it gets at the time of this writing. Additionally, one of the greatest fears of investing in an expensive new satellite system (or any piece of tech for that matter) is that it won’t be compatible with the technology of tomorrow. What good is a system that can’t even communicate with the best satellite systems a year away? Impressively, the Kymeta communicates with GEO, MEO, and LEO connections. What are these new-fangled acronyms, you may ask? GEO stands for geosynchronous satellites, which have been in orbit since the 1960s. GEO satellites have an orbital period that matches the Earth’s rotational period, and a GEO satellite would appear to hover over a fixed point of the planet to the extraterrestrial observer. To be truly geostationary, a GEO satellite must be located over the Earth’s equator as well. For decades, GEO satellite networks dominated and still are the most common in the communication industry. MEO, Medium Earth Orbit, satellites also have been around since the 1960s. Un-

like a GEO, a MEO satellite is not in synch with a specific point on the Earth’s surface. Instead, MEO satellites operate closer to Earth’s surface than GEO satellites, and therefore have less of a relay time delay than the farther GEO satellites. A MEO satellite system of note includes GLONASS (Russian, ГЛОНАСС), often utilized by the marine industry. The “new kid” LEO, Low Earth Orbit, is the most buzzworthy of the satellite system types. The future, according to the hype, is that large constellations of tiny LEO satellites is the key to 100 percent perfect planetary communications coverage. If all goes to plan, and the proposed swarm of near-Earth satellites doesn’t collide into everything in their paths to create a fiery meteor shower of death, the Kymeta antenna is ready to take advantage of the cuttingedge system. For now, the LEO satellite swarm dream is still in its infancy, and the Kymeta panel antenna may be a few years early to truly tap into the LEO potential. All in all, from what we can tell, the new, locally grown Kymeta antenna’s offerings are not just hype. According to the science and the specs, this antenna should be the real deal. What we need now are some pioneering users to put them through their paces for the final verdict (and report on their findings!). If interested, local dealer S3 Maritime can tell you more about the technology and pricing. Heads up, you will not find one of these at your local boat swap.

Seattle Yachting The star of the recent Seattle Boat Show was probably the brand-new, 2018 Ocean Alexander (OA) 100 motoryacht on display at the in-water Bell Harbor Marina location. The OA - a company with Pacific Northwest roots - flagship in front of the Space Needle and many construction cranes under a classic winter sky is Seattle luxury yachting incarnate. This hull is currently for sale. The future owner is getting a lot of yacht. The OA 100 comes in two general layouts, an Open Flybridge and Skylounge option. The main difference between the two is the bridge, for the Skylounge features a completely enclosed flybridge while the Open Flybridge is, as its name suggests, open with a hardtop cover. Also defining of these builds is the prominent seating arrangement on the bow, complete with a large entertainment table with wraparound seating and recessed stanchion holders for a bimini top. Naturally, a big draw on a large luxury yacht like this is the interior. Different layouts are offered, including a two-master stateroom arrangement catered to a dual ownership situation. This particular hull has the on-deck, single master stateroom interior layout.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

March (Salmon) Madness! March means spring has sprung and salmon will be sought (and hopefully caught) in Northwest salt waters and rivers. While many will just start thinking of taking the boat out of storage, we’ll already be on the fishy forage! Spring Chinook from the Columbia River and Washington and Oregon’s various tributaries are the absolute best tasting salmon on the planet. If you’re not set up for fishing rivers, this is a great opportunity to hire a guide. These prized fish fight hard, and as mentioned before, are unparalleled as table fare. Make March a special salmon month with a little “springer” madness. It will most likely begin a tradition you will look forward to all year. A quick internet search will bring up many reputable guides. Fishing methods vary, but all are fun and can be productive. You’ll most likely be in a large open sled or drift boat, so make sure and dress for the Northwest’s winter/spring conditions. Then sit back and let your guide put you on the fish!

Left: Vicki Klein with a great winter Chinook caught in Roche Harbor’s 15th annual derby. She took first place in the women’s angler category, fourth place overall. Below: Returning veterans had a great time with Salmon for Soldiers at the Roche Harbor Salmon classic. Blackmouth for everyone!

Winter Chinook will still be on the feed in local waters. In the San Juans, we usually see some larger spring fish show up in March. These Chinook aren’t blackmouth, but early returning juggernauts with tight scales and purple/ chrome flanks. Not too many years ago, a few fish around 30 lbs. hit the docks during the month of March. While we may not see many of these, hatchery blackmouth should still be available for some tasty takes. Roche Harbor’s Salmon Derby kicked off the weekend before the Seattle Boat Show. This was the 15th annual event, and it just keeps getting better. Windy conditions made fishing tough, but a good time was had by all. Bob Enselman of Stanwood, Washington, took the first prize of $10,000 with his team of locals. Their top hatchery winter Chinook weighed in at a respectable 17.11 lbs. Our own Vicki Klein (aka my wife) of Team Parker Boats NW tied for fourth overall in the tournament and won top fish of all female anglers. The Friday Harbor Salmon Classic took place February 9 and 10. The top prize of $15,000 went to Trent Kies with a beautiful 19.15-lb Chinook. Proceeds from the tournament will go to the nonprofit Salmon for Soldiers. Lindell Yachts and Inside Passage Yacht Sales also donated $5,000 to Salmon for Soldiers, an organization that gets returning vets fishing. This is a great event and a very good time. The weather and fishing were pretty darn good for this one. That’s the last of the Marine Area 7 trio of winter derbies. Up first this month on the Northwest Salmon Derby circuit is the Olympic Peninsula Salmon Derby. This longstanding event takes place March 9 to 11. Top prize for the biggest whopper is a whopping $10,000! Go to gardinersalmonderby.com for more info. Next is the Everett Blackmouth Derby March 17 and 18. This tournament is put on by Puget Sound Anglers, and prospective participants can visit their website for info (pugetsoundanglers.com). Both derbies put entrants into the running for the Derby Series top prize of a brand new boat! Washington’s North of Falcon salmon season setting process will be in full swing through March. This will be an interesting year, with the resignation of Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Director Jim Unsworth in January and the controversial 10-year Chinook Management Plan that was signed and then walked back.

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

Spring Flurry on the Boating Beat As the days get longer and the Seattle Boat Show is in the rearview mirror, hopefully your attention should either shift to prepping your boat for this summer’s excursions or flipping through the local cruising guides to plan the next adventure. Like any trip, legislative success doesn’t just happen by showing up in Olympia and flipping the switch with legislators. Months of planning, visiting with the right specialists, and laying out what you are looking for applies to success in both boating and government affairs. And when the attention turns to boating politics, so much is happening that it’s hard to fit it into a neat On Watch column. Space is short and issues are complex, but here are my fast takes to keep you in the know:

Copper Legislation Got questions about copper paint? As we go to print here, the Washington House of Representatives passed House Bill 6333 that directly addresses the 2020 complete copper paint ban. First, wood boats are exempt from any copper phaseout. Second, the date moves to 2021. In the meantime, Washington’s Department of Ecology (Ecology) will look closer at leach rates and other approaches for other substitute chemicals that could be as bad, if not worse, for the environment than copper.

No Discharge Zone Where are we with the No Discharge Zone? While Ecology can be our friend with the above antifouling issue, they are our foe on this one -- so goes politics (and life). This state agency is moving forward with outreach plans to address how this measure will impact boaters. Meanwhile, the Marine Alliance continues to lobby the White House and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that there is neither a need for pump-out capacity (nor common sense) that would justify this one. Disclaimer: I have strong opinions and have spent the last six years rolling around on this issue.

Fish Fight What’s the latest on recreational fishing? A year ago, Tony Floor would have covered the Chinook Harvest Management Plan in depth for you. Sans Tony, that responsibility comes to me. On December 1, 2017, a secretive deal was made between the Tribes and Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WFDW) that would essentially end recreational Chinook salmon fishing in Puget Sound for 10 years. By late January, anglers and boating businesses put up justified objections, winning over a majority of the WDFW commissioners. This citizen-appointed body has asked for timeout. Also, the WDFW head, Director Jim Unsworth,

resigned in late January and the department’s leadership is in transition.

Industry News The Boat Show was the perfect setting to take an inventory on where things stood. The annual career fair that I organize for the Seattle Boat Show brought together 30-odd companies and 150 attendees. During the Boat Show, 35 school districts (and me) met across the street with the State Superintendent Chris Reykdal on February 1 to launch the maritime iteration of Core Plus. In a nutshell, Core Plus is an organized movement to get shop class back into Washington’s high schools. So much progress, and so much interest and money from us taxpayers means that solutions are on the way for the next generation of marine trades. If you like good news, bookmark the Core Plus website (core-plus.org).

Electric Code Saga Why should you care about the National Electrical Code? If you have power on your boat, then you should know how much stray current is escaping from your vessel. If you visit a marina, you want to know that it will not lose power. All this electricity is regulated through a process under the auspices of the National Electrical Code. The bad news is that the new code that the rest of the country adopted is completely unattainable for marinas. The good news is that Washington’s Labor & Industries agency has pressed pause 2006 Cruisers Yachts 420 Express Twin Volvo diesels, AC-Heat, Genset, Nice! $199,000

If you are looking for any more info or have an issue that has you scratching your head, drop me a line (Peter@nmta. net) and let me know what’s happening. I can either (try to) explain the lay of the land on the legislative front, or I’ll join you in the head scratch (okay, that’s gross) and add it to my “to do list.” Peter Schrappen is the NMTA’s Government Affairs Director and the Clean Boating Foundation’s Executive Director.

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Soups to Get You Through the Last of the Rain Spring in the Northwest can be slow to arrive. The daphne is blooming, both flowers and weeds are starting to sprout, but it is still a bit cold to spend the day lounging on foredeck. The boat needs a wash, systems need to be checked, and a work party on the boat is in order. Why not make a batch of soup, go down to the boat, get your chores done, and invite some friends for dinner after the work is done? It could be icy, pouring rain, bright and cold, hailing, warm and 70 degrees, a wind storm…who knows? Northwesterners don’t let the weather stop us. The tough part is making the decision to ski or work on the boat. Yet, it is sure nice to have the boat ready for that sudden, warm, spring day! Soups are great. They are delicious and warming, whether they are light and delicate or hardy and soul soothing. The soup is the meal, all you need to buy is a nice big loaf of bread and something yummy for dessert! Depending on the type of soup you decide to make, select a delicious bottle of red to enjoy with the meal. When guests arrive, have a nice bottle of bubbles ready with a wedge of cheese, crackers, and olives. The soup can be done in advance and simmering on the stove, or you could tote a crock pot down and use that to warm the soup. Once you decide to make soup, make a large batch to enjoy for future meals. I love soup for breakfast with a poached egg on top, or I grab one of my frozen tubs of soup and take it for lunch

at work. It is a quick and delicious meal. Most soups can easily be reheated and served quickly and are great if you are out of time or under the weather. My favorite soup is a minestrone- style soup with beans added for a little protein hit. When you start making soup, plan on making two types in one session. The base ingredients and methods are essentially the same. It is a one-pot job, so select a soup pot with a heavy bottom, something you might use for pasta or stew, and sweat your vegetables in layers to develop the flavors. Season at the beginning, middle, and end right before you are ready to serve. If you like your soup lightly seasoned, then put salt and pepper on the table. Select a nice chicken or vegetable stock for your soup. There are some great products on the market, but if you buy stock, always buy the low sodium so you can control the salt content. As a final note, do not overcook the soup to mush unless it is a puree soup — there will be a lot of flavor lost in overcooking. Enjoy your evening with friends, and maybe go out at the end of the pier and say a prayer to the weather gods for a gentle spring transition. Enjoy!

1 bay leaf 1 /4 cup brandy 1 /2 cup red wine 1 quart brown veal or beef stock (can substitute brown chicken)

Heat large soup/pasta pot. Add oil and butter, and sauté onions until a dark golden brown. Season with salt. Deglaze with brandy and wine, cooking until onions are dark (not burnt). Add remaining stocks, bay leaf, and thyme. Bring broth to a simmer and reduce by a third. Fill onion soup in ceramic crocks or soup bowls. Top with one slice of toast and 1/4 cup of cheese and bake under broiler until golden brown (toast recipe below). Serve immediately.

Gourmet Cheese Toast 4 slices French baguette, toasted with olive oil and salt 1 cup Gruyère cheese, grated

Potato Leek Soup 2 bay leaves 6 sprigs fresh rosemary, or 2 teaspoons crushed dried rosemary 4 sprigs fresh flat-leaf parsley 1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns 3 tablespoons olive oil 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 4 stalks celery, cut into 1/4-inch dice 6 leeks, white parts only, thinly sliced 4 shallots, diced

Heat olive oil and butter in a medium stockpot. Add celery, leeks, shallots, and garlic; cook on medium-low heat until very soft, about 45 minutes, stirring only occasionally. Do not brown. Add potatoes, stock, and reserved bouquet garni (recipe below). Bring mixture to a boil, and then reduce to a gentle simmer. Cook until potatoes are very tender, about 40 minutes. Remove bouquet garni and discard. Working in batches, pass half of the soup through a food mill, fitted with a medium disk, into a large saucepan OR use an immersion blender. Add remaining chunky soup. Place the saucepan on medium-low heat to warm soup. Slowly stir in milk and cream, and season with salt and pepper. BOUQUET GARNI: Wrap bay leaves, rosemary, parsley, and peppercorns in a piece of cheesecloth. Then tie with a piece of kitchen twine and set aside.

Coconut Curry Cauliflower Soup 1 whole head of cauliflower, roughly chopped 3 teaspoons olive oil 1 teaspoon sea salt 1 medium onion, chopped 4 large carrots, chopped 2 tablespoons ginger, chopped 3 garlic cloves, crushed with your knife

1 teaspoon ground turmeric 1-4 tablespoons Thai curry paste 5 cups stock (veggie, but chicken works too) 1 can coconut milk (15 oz.) Sea salt, to taste Sliced green onion, chili peppers, cilantro, chili oil, and freshly squeezed lime juice to garnish

Begin by roasting or sautéing the cauliflower (you could also use leftovers from last night!). Then heat two teaspoons of olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the carrots and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until both the carrots and onion are brown, about 10 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the turmeric and Thai curry paste, cook for 1 more minute. Deglaze the pan with a splash of the stock, scraping the bottom of the pot to remove the dark bits. Add the remaining stock and bring the pot to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and gently simmer. Put the cauliflower into the pot (reserve a few small pieces for garnish, if you’d like). Using an immersion blender (or working in small batches using a regular blender) blend the soup until it is very smooth. Add the coconut milk and season to taste with sea salt. Serve the soup garnished with the reserved cauliflower florets and garnishes.

Over the last decade, I’ve been privileged many times to be aboard the Royal Canadian Navy ship that establishes one end of the Swiftsure International Yacht Race’s start line. The ship anchors off Victoria’s Clover Point, a small thumb of land jutting out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. To the south of the anchorage, the snow-topped Olympic Mountains create a majestic backdrop. Swiftsure, the largest yacht race on North America’s Pacific Coast, is a rugged, exacting, col-

O

orful, international competition. Winds can be brisk, or it can be a frustrating “Driftsure.” Occasionally, after the start, the flooding tide can sweep boats back way past the start line—as far back as San Juan Island. I’m delighted to hang over the ship’s bulwarks, watching from above the more than 200 sailboats participating in the race every year. Competitors come from British Columbia, Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and California. They duel with a cornucopia of vessels—sloops, ketches,

are magnificent—pure white, traditional red, silvery gray, golden, black. The boats are filled with lively crews, in colorful foulies, their adrenaline high. Then, a loud blast. The naval ship lets off a canon shot, signalling the start of a race. Whitish smoke wafts over nearby sails. The first group of racers is off!

75 Races AND COUNTING In 2018, Swiftsure will celebrate its 75th run on May 24 to 28. It wasn’t always smooth sailing, though. In 1930, six sailors from the Seattle (SYC), Royal Vancouver (Royal Van), and Royal Victoria (Royal Vic) yacht clubs figured it was time for a good race. Over a few toddies, they decided to race the following day from Cadboro Bay and round the lightship, Swiftsure (hence the race’s name), anchored on Swiftsure Bank. The Royal Ocean Racing Club rules were applied; and SYC’s “skimming dish schooner” Claribel won. The following year, four yachts entered the event, with only one—Royal Vancouver’s Westward Ho—finishing the

race. The Depression depressed racing— a single contest was held in 1934. During World War II, many sailors patrolled the waters to spot Japanese subs; racing wasn’t considered patriotic. But in June 1947, with post-war optimism blooming, 15 yachts, using the Cruising Club of America handicap system, lined up near Brotchie Ledge and began an annual tradition that hasn’t flagged since. Between 1948 and 1950, the race started in Port Townsend to bypass the notorious Race Passage currents, but in 1951 the Royal Victoria Yacht Club became the permanent host. The race has started off Victoria ever since. Over the years, Swiftsure grew to attract as many as 400 competing boats, then settled back to a couple of hundred annually. The choice in 1960 to hold Swiftsure on the U.S. Memorial Day weekend helped attract boats coming from afar. The traditional course is the Swiftsure Lightship Classic (138.2 nautical miles [nm]), but other courses were added as interest grew. By 1962, after many skippers felt their boats were too small to

As they mill about awaiting the start of one of the five races they’ve signed up for (six in 2018), it’s amazing how such a throng of boats– sails raised, the use of engines outlawed– avoids colliding. The boats juggle, jockey, and slither narrowly past each other, jostling within inches of competitors. The sails, lit by a blazing sun,

were outside the average family’s means. But the growing affluence of the post-war ‘50s and ‘60s, combined with the invention of fiberglass boat construction material, allowed less well-heeled people to own boats. As Daniel Spurr wrote in Heart of Glass: Fiberglass Boats and the Men Who Built Them, “Indeed, were it not for fiberglass, hundreds of thousands of people, like myself, might never have taken to the water as we have… in everything from canoes to sportfishermen to sleek sloops and homely ketches.” Along with changes in boat-building material, sails also benefitted from new tech. Our first Swiftsure racers used cotton or hemp sails. The invention of Dacron and nylon sails allowed sails to be much lighter and maintained a much better shape. Today’s carbon-fiber reinforced sails have produced an almost meteoric improvement, offering ever-higher performance, lighter weight, and greater stretch resistance.

Similarly, today’s sailors use cored synthetic lines that combine such materials as aramid fibre, Kevlar, Technora, and Vectran. They’re much lighter, tougher, and UV- and stretch-resistant than the old ropes made of hemp, cotton, linen, or jute. And they’re lots easier on the hands. “I think the first Swiftsurers would also be impressed by the change in clothing,” said Ron Jewula, who has 25 Swiftsure races under his keel. “We wear lightweight, waterproof foul weather gear and drysuits. Breathable stuff with bright colors. Much better than the old, heavy, and uncomfortable oil slickers that made everyone look the same.” Ron added that feeding a crew, especially on coldish overnight races, is much easier than in the past. “Most boats have a fridge, stove, and propane,” he said. “You can eat pretty well on freeze-dried food and keep up your strength.” He recalls the 2009 race when one of the crew was cooking while “the moon shone through the clouds. We had a beautiful run around

reach Swiftsure Bank, the race committee introduced a shorter race to Clallam Bay, 15 miles west of Port Angeles, calling it the Juan de Fuca Race (78.7 nm). It proved a success, and by 1969, nearly 50 boats competed. The 1988 addition of the Cape Flattery Race (101.9 nm), falling almost halfway between the Swiftsure Lightship Classic and the Juan de Fuca courses, attracted many larger yachts. The Hein Bank Race (118.1 nm), introduced in 2015 (just 20 nm shorter than the Swiftsure Lightship Classic), gives great competition to larger, faster boats not wishing to stick their nose into the open Pacific. Finally, the Swiftsure Inshore Classic, whose courses are determined for each race after reviewing weather and tidal current predictions, was added in 2004.

1971: 35+ knot winds during the race dismasted six boats just after the start. Forty-four competitors withdrew.

1967: The Pacific Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) handicap system was introduced. Tacoma Yacht Club’s Rain Bird was the first PHRF winner. Rain Bird is seen here at a later date with the smaller sailboat Klickitat.

1970

1976: Swiftsure is known for its stringent safety regulations. Boats have run aground, shipped water, turned turtle, and collided, but only one person has died. In 1976, Native Dancer’s skipper, Wilbur Willard, was swept out of the cockpit near Bonilla Point during a gale.

the Navy ship on the Bank and a closereach back. A textbook race.” But the following year, no one ate a bite. “It was total slop,” Ron said. “We got within 10 miles of the Navy ship on the Bank at nine in the evening. Big waves, no wind, just sloshing around. Everyone was seasick. We finally got around the mark 12 hours later.” Modern electronic navigational aids have replaced the dead reckoning of the past. I can imagine the early racers gazing in wonder at today’s chart plotters showing the yacht’s exact GPS location, with radar overlay to boot. Or reading the names of the freighters plying the Strait on AIS. Or seeing how hardware/software informs sailors when to tack, their boat’s wind direction and speed, the prevailing currents, and existing depths. “These electronics allow us to continually play the tacks,” said Bob Bentham, who’s competed 17 times. “And now that SPOTs [race trackers] are carried aboard

Race Challenges Weather and winds. As Bruce Hedrick (formerly with Northwest Yachting magazine) told me, “Perhaps the reason Swiftsure is so popular is that no two races are ever the same. It’s said, in fact, that NOAA sends its weather forecasters to the Pacific Northwest to teach them humility.” Besides the fickle weather, racers agree Race Passage always tests the best of sailors. The currents in the passage between Race Rocks and Vancouver Island’s rocks can reach 6 knots. The 2018 Swiftsure won’t be an exception—a strong flood will run until 15:48 hours on Saturday. When tall racing tales are told, many of them focus on Race Passage mishaps. John Buchan, a long-time competitor, struck a rock in 1976 when returning in the fog. “We were bucking the tide and had no wind,” he recalls. “When we got jammed

all long course boats, there’s no guessing where each competitor is located.”

1997: At 120’, SYC’s Extra Beat was the largest yacht to enter the 1997 Swiftsure Exhibition Race. The Frers 120 was ineligible to compete because of its movable ballast.

on that rock, I turned on the engine to get off.” He sailed on and won the race, only to be disqualified. “I had to turn on that engine for safety,” he said, still a bit disgruntled. “We’ve sailed white-knuckled through Race Passage,” said Ron Jewula. “It’s the intensity of navigation. Lots of boats have nailed one of those islets here. Yet it’s an adrenaline high when you’re screaming through the Passage at midnight even when you’re tired and goofy.”

2018: New Tricks for an Old Dog This year’s contest introduces the Legends of Swiftsure race, an inshore day-race for boats built in 1967 or earlier. Boats that haven’t raced any of the Swiftsure long courses since 2010 may also enter this contest. In addition, a one-design Six Metre race is planned for the Inshore course. And, as so many multihulls are now entering Swiftsure, a Juan de Fuca Multihull race has been added. Continued on Page 68

2014: Nine Oregon boats that had completed the Oregon Offshore Race opted to stay in Victoria and entered Swiftsure — doubling their race quota. HMCS Oriole, helmed by Jeff Kibble, wins the Lanterne Rouge trophy, recognizing fortitude, discipline, and “stick-to-it-iveness.” She is the last boat to finish within the time limit of 06:00, Monday.

2010

2017: Swiftsure’s Race Tracker (SPOT), developed by Royal Vic’s Alec Matthews, received over 500,000 views. The previous year, the website crashed—too many folks logged on. The system has since been beefed up.

Swiftsure is hoping that retired U.S. Navy Rear Admiral Robert McLinton will be able to join the race in May. In 2016, at age 90, he was the oldest skipper to compete. When I spoke with Bob, who resides in Sequim, he said he’ll come if he can sell his J/35 Intrepid and replace it with a J/105. I asked him what has contributed to such a long sailing life. His Annapolis Naval Academy training started his 39-year

waterborne career, but he’s also biked from Los Angeles to Boston and from Swartz Bay, B.C. to Mexico, for a total of 24,000 miles. He’s proud his rides raised $51,000 for charity. The exercise and dedication have kept him sailing and in good shape. If any Northwest Yachting readers can help Bob switch boats so he can compete in Swiftsure at age 92, give him a shout! The race’s 75th iteration is shaping up to be yet another memorable one. For those

curious about more details and the latest developments, the event’s official website is a great resource (swiftsure.org). Marianne Scott is an award-winning marine author who writes for magazines around the world. She has contributed to Northwest Yachting since 2001. She’s sailed round-trip from Victoria to French Polynesia in a 35’ sailboat, circumnavigated the Baltic Sea, traversed the rivers of the Netherlands, and recently completed a 2,700 NM voyage to Alaska.

LOVE ME

Choosing a dinghy is one of the most important decisions for a boat owner, especially for cruisers who will use it heavily in both emergency and for-fun situations.

By Norris Comer

70 NORTHWEST YACHTING || MARCH 2018

I was high on life as Bainbridge Island’s newest sailor during the sweltering, wildfire-themed summer of 2015. Sick of Florida, where I had lived my last college semesters and some change aboard a beat-up Catalina 27 (1973), I had purchased one of the few remaining Pacific Northwest-based Albin Vega sailboats sight unseen over the internet for a screaming deal (a divorce was in the seller ’s calculations somewhere). The exploits of young explorers on a budget like Norwegian Jarle Andhøy and American Matt Rutherford had clearly left their mark on me.

I

Starting at the white beaches of St. Petersburg, I loaded up my 2003 Hyundai Accent with my meager post-college possessions, strapped my bike to the rack, and floored it across this great country through Baton Rouge swampland, green Texan spring, Rocky Mountain snow flurries, and finally, the most beautiful of them all, Winslow Wharf Marina. When I finally had my first alone time with my new purchase, Huldra, the euphoria took second seat to my curiosity. What goodies had I inherited? I was relieved to find the essentials and some pleasant surprises, like non-


expired flares. The owner had wisely taken whatever toolbox probably lived aboard, bad news for me, but human. Notably, there was a lack of a dinghy. To accomplish all the Pacific Northwest sailing fantasies I dreamed of, I knew I was going to need a good one. That evening as I made my rounds to the neighbors, an old duffer and I hit it off. Turns out, he had a dinghy, a venerable Avon that he was trying to get rid of for $200. Flushed with hubris, I bought it on the spot and virtually ran back to my boat to take it for a test spin. After exhausting myself with the old foot pump, assembling the faded wood oars, weaseling in the hardwood floorboard inserts, and straining to deploy the cumbersome thing over Huldra’s generous freeboard, I realized there was no hard transom for an outboard bracket on the Avon. Of course, there was a small leak that I spent some time hunting for and patching. I also realized, if I was serious about cruising, this was a lot of dinghy for one person to handle. The scenarios ran through my head, and unless I was in still seas with only a short distance to travel, my options were limited. No zippy inlet exploration for me. Although I didn’t regret my purchase and went on to use my Avon often, I quietly vowed to do a better job next time with my dinghy purchase. I offer the following input not as an enlightened guru, but rather as a fellow boater who has learned a thing or two the hard way.

STEP #1: KNOW THYSELF Before you charge into the nearest dinghy supply store and promptly get overwhelmed, I recommend that you spare some moments of self-reflection. Think about not just what you want, but what can you do? What kind of platform is your boat? If you’ve got high freeboard and a bad back, you should think twice about a set-up that involves heavy lifting. Does this mean you go more minimalist, or do you go bigger with a davit system?

What kind of seas do you regularly take on? Seaworthiness in a tender can be vital for those taking on the alluring waters of the north. This initial step of self-reflection is important to ground yourself in the reality of your situation. Know who you are, what your boat offers, and what your needs are before proceeding.

STEP #2: CONSIDER THE VARIABLES While it can be easy, and even fun, to lose oneself in the dozens of potential questions related to dinghy/tender purchases, it may be easiest to distill the entire thought process down to two fundamental variables: in-water performance and on-deck stowability. Dinghies and tenders are offered in such abundance, you could probably plot the evolutionary tree like the taxonomic one used in biology, and they differ about as much as the kingdoms Animalia and Fungi. Once you address these two variables, you’ve at least determined whether you are animal or mushroom. Variable 1: In-Water Performance: What do I want and need to do? Dreamer (Non-Motorized): If you are an avid sailor and/or paddler and are considering a completely non-motorized dinghy route, then first you must fess up and admit that you are an eccentric idealist (who we love). While a tenable position, the truth is that you have multiplied the factors you must consider as you’ve reduced what you must purchase. If you plan to cruise extensively, trips to shore will involve paddling against the current or sailing upwind, even if all you need is ice for your Old Fashioned from the gas station. Revisit the “Know Thyself” sec-

tion, meditate a bit, and then proceed. If you fall into this camp, you still have choices to make. You will probably want something that can move a decent amount of cargo and the occasional passenger at least, and for that there are many inflatables offered that do not feature a built-in hard transom for a mounted outboard. The Avon inflatable from my anecdote falls into this camp, the pros including easy stowage and paddles that disassemble. If you insist on using kayaks or a paddleboard as your primary tender, then do yourself a favor and get a touring model. Although inept as a cargo/ passenger mule, they can at least boast decent seakeeping ability. An inflatable kayak or paddleboard, like the Airis line from locally based company Walker Bay, is probably minimalist incarnate as far as ease of stowability and no motors. Shore Mule Dinghy (Motorized): It is probably safe to bet that most dinghies fall into this category. Both minimalist and pragmatic, this category’s job is to get maximum people and cargo to and from shore, thanks to a trusty low-horsepower outboard motor and perhaps some maneuvering with a pair of oars. The choices available in this group can get truly staggering. If we take just one Walker Bay product line as an example, we’re in their Odyssey territory. These boats are completely inflatable, including the floor. They are rated to a recommended 4.5 to 8 horsepower from single short-shaft outboard engines. While you may be able to get dinghies like this on a plane, that’s not their primary purpose in life. These are the putt-putts of the dinghy world, and when paired with a trusty four-stroke outboard, generally

Washington-based Bullfrog Boats feature a novel solid-foam hull incased with strong aluminum. The design is lightweight and unsinkable, and center console versions like the one pictured here are popular.

Left: The non-motorized kayak option is not without its rewards, and it’s hard to beat the minimalistic purity. A tandem style like the one pictured allows for that special someone to make the experience extra romantic. Right: The shore mule is probably the most common approach, and bays further from the mooring field become much more accessible with a few sips of gasoline.

bottom with inflatable gunwales. A British invention, the first RIBs appeared in the 1960s by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Offering the performance of proper solid hulls with some of the portability and convenience of inflatables, RIBs remain the go-to tender choices for those who can manage them on deck (we’ll come back to that later). Also innovative are designs like Bellingham, Washington-based Bullfrog Boats. These tenders have a completely solid hull built of buoyant polyurethane foam incased within strong and lightweight aluminum. Unsinkable in a very literal sense and quite strong, the light construction makes it a bit more manageable on deck. Prominent in the performance tender family is the center console layout. RIBs, Bullfrog Boats, and builders of solid-hull aluminum and fiberglass tenders tend to offer both the traditional mountedoutboard and tiller approach and the center console options that give the tender a “real” helm and nav station. Once we get into the center console realm, the tender category evolves into models that are just as capable as comparably-sized

enjoy long lives with low maintenance. To be a shore mule, a dinghy does not necessarily have to be inflatable. Companies like Porta-Bote out of California have been successfully making “origami” tenders for years. These hard-panel boats can assemble and disassemble like large, simple puzzles, essentially giving many of the pros of hard-bottom performance with the pros of inflatablelike stowability. However, due to the nature of seakeeping, the generally higher cost, and increasing complexity, most hard-bottom dinghies tend to leave the purely “shore mule” category for the glitzier category we’re about to dive into. Performance Tender (Motorized): With this category, we are no longer in dinghy territory, but rather Tender Town. Generally, the terms dinghy and tender are synonymous, although most consider dinghies to be the smaller, simpler variety, while tenders are proper hard-hulled boats unto themselves. Perhaps dinghies are to boats what tenders are to yachts? Regardless, the entry level to this world are the rigid-hull inflatable boats (RIBs). This popular tender design features a hard

ski boats or runabouts. This bracket also is where things can get very customizable, with some companies offering completely custom builds for larger yachts with specific demands. Additionally, there are hard-bottomed tenders that are compatible with sail rig packages so the non-motorized dreamers mentioned before can have their cake and eat it too. In exchange for the capabilities of a “real boat,” these tenders become the most cumbersome to stow aboard. Not only is a large mothership required, but also some kind of hoist, davit system, or jerry-rigged lashing is necessary. Some, usually sailors with less deck space for their length overall, will resort to towing a solid-hull. Whatever the solution is, a general rule is that the larger and more tricked out the tender, the more consideration is needed to stow it safely and conveniently aboard. Variable 2: On-Deck Stowability: How far will I go to get this thing aboard? Modern boaters are not the first to dream of owning a large, completely tricked-out boat that is also impossibly easy to stow. The Viking god Baldr was said to have the “greatest of all ships” (according to the ancient Gylfaginning) named Hringhorni that could also fold up into a pocket. The fact that the Vikings fantasized about such a ship in their mythology puts the idea on the plane of the Holy Grail in terms of real-world possibilities. The on-deck consideration is what grounds many of the decisions made with the on-water goals. Simply put, an aluminum center console with integrated sound system blasting Jimmy Buffet may be the dream, but if you’re at the helm of a 20-something-foot Ranger Tug, you’re probably out of luck. By that same token, that inflatable kayak will roll up nicely to stow aboard, but one should be realistic about what conditions such a dinghy can handle. In an effort to balance the in-water considerations with the on-deck ones at a glance, I’ve sketched out this chart (Fig.1). Several common dinghy/tender types Continued on Page 74

Although undoubtedly a great ride, the mothership will need to be large and well-equipped. Bottom Line: top marks for in-water, low marks for on-deck (Fig. 1, p.72).

Continued from Page 72

have been given a general, unscientific score from me based upon the two variables mentioned previousily and plotted. The y-axis represents the In-Water Score (cargo carrying and performance abilities) and the x-axis represents the On-Deck Score (ease of stowability). I’m sure the exact scores could be endlessly debated and tweaked around dock talk circles, but hey, we’ve got to start somewhere. Send a letter with your input!

STEP #3: GO FORTH! You’ve reflected upon your own abilities and needs. You’ve navigated a few of the fundamental crossroads with your research and know generally where you plan to be on the chart. Now is the time to leave the glowing computer screen and internet research behind to go into the field on a hunt! I always recommend starting your search at the bulletin boards of marinas and by talking to other boaters who’ve used the dinghies you’re considering. A certain RIB could look great on paper, but somebody whose owned one may have useful bits of information with regards to the on-deck situation.

Also from Walker Bay is the Airis line of inflatable standup paddleboards. These are so stowable they fit into a backpack, but what about cargo? Bottom Line: low in-water score, top marks on-deck (Fig. 1. p.72).

Additionally, perfectly good dinghies tend to end up as leftovers in garages or boatyards. Those marina bulletin boards can be excellent sources for leads, often for a great price. They can also be good opportunities for first encounters that bring the tender from the product catalogue to life. Internet equivalents like Craigslist can also bear fruit, but generally the listings on a marina bulletin board are a bit more reliable, personable, and bona fide. In the perfect world, you’d be able to squeeze in a boat show before your big purchase. A big boat show offers excellent in-person exposure to just about everything in the market, with exhibitor experts who are eager to share information and cut a deal. Avoid the impulse purchase but remember those special offers when you collect business cards. If you do end up going with them, the “deal of a lifetime” they offered is worth bringing up again. Once you’ve chatted to your fellow boaters, scanned the local marina bulletin boards, glanced over Craigslist, and ideally squeezed in a boat show, it’s time to go to your local dealer. At this point in

your search, you should be knowledgeable about the subject and know what you’re looking for. This makes you far less susceptible to canned sales pitches and equips you to ask the important questions. If you’re open to a wide variety of inflatables, then you should have plenty of options wherever you go. If you’re after something very specific, you may want to visit the manufacturer ’s website to locate the nearest dealer. The goal is that once you’re at the store, you’ve got a short list of final candidates and a few very specific questions. The journey will be well worth it, for even a low-end dinghy or good kayak can put you back one or two thousand bucks. If you are going the high-end custom tender route, you best build a great relationship with the company you’re working with. At this point, you will be shelling out tens of thousands, and you owe it to yourself to get your money’s worth. The final thought I offer is that there is a very distinct possibility that your wellbeing will be dependent upon your tender at one point or another during your exciting boating career. A perfect fit between dinghy and skipper is a truly magical thing, and, unless there is a dog aboard, it’ll be your best friend through the best and worst days on the water.

Looking INTO THE

FUTURE Boating has benefitted from the fruits of technology like everything else, and there's plenty to keep our eyes on in the years to come.

When I was a kid, one of my favorite board games was Mars 2020 in which players compete to get their space program to the Red Planet first. There’s always been a mystique around the year 2020, and now that I’m writing about boat tech in 2018, I find myself thinking about the state of boating technology of today and in the near future.

From revolutions in solid state semiconductors for radar, 3-D forward facing sonar, remote vessel monitoring systems, the prospect of 100 percent planetary satellite coverage, all the things one can do with a smart device, and more, boating today can resemble a Mars mission in more ways than one. Here we look at some of the techy treats and trends defining boating in 2018. By


erable cavity magnetron technology is officially on the outs in favor of silicon carbide semiconductors. Cavity magnetrons were critical during the WWII era to make radar work aboard. The essential premise is that a high-powered vacuum tube generates microwaves via a stream of electrons interacting with a magnetic field moving past a series of open metal cavities (cavity resonators). Solid state silicon carbide semiconductors came onto the marine radar scene in the early 2000s and have been chipping away at cavity magnetron’s dominance. The advantages of solid state semiconductors are wideband capabilities, instant activation, longer lifespan, lower power consumption, lighter weight, and a more compact design. While companies are still making cavity magnetron radars for both the commercial and recreational spheres– with Furuno even introducing a new line of magnetron radars (“X-band” series)–cavity magnetron is definitely on the run from solid state. Boaters should expect even more capable radars in the coming years thanks to the general superiority of solid state units. In the meanwhile, be sure to give cavity magnetron units you come across a well-earned salute. We’ll never know how many mariners’ lives and vessels the technology has saved. SONAR CIRCUS

no means a complete summary, these are just a relative handful of all the futuristic offerings already here or soon available. Word of caution: remember to own the tech, not be owned by it. We will always need skilled skippers at the helm. Exit: Cavity Magnetrons The consensus from the modern radar manufacturer community is that the ven-

The innovations around sonar are happening at an ever-increasing pace, and at this point it feels almost as if engineers are pulling off miracles based on bold inter-company dares. Take forward looking sonar, for example. Forward looking units direct a narrow acoustic beam forward to see what’s coming, not just what’s underneath. Companies like Simrad with their ForwardScan and EchoPilot’s forward looking sonar units have done well with two-dimensional imaging for the last few years. Garmin’s recent introduction of the Panoptix sonar unit allows you to see what’s coming in all three dimensions. Just about every parameter of beam manipulation is constantly being pushed to the next level with no plateau in sight.

ren Marine now make compact, non-invasively installed sensors that can monitor boat position, battery voltage, engine metrics, bilge pump activity, temperature, and even motion for security purposes. This information is fed to the owner’s smart device remotely, essentially acting as a permanent first mate aboard when you’re away. Innovations in this field will likely include more ways to physically control the boat from a distance as well. For example, if one is monitoring moisture during a wet Pacific Northwest winter, perhaps he or she could remotely turn on the dehumidifier from home with a touch of the screen? We’re not far from that reality being commonplace. PAIR AND PLAY It would be impossible to write about boating technology and not mention the rise of the smart device as a tool on board. The vast potential is obvious, as there is an app for just about everything from weather to navigation. The smart device will likely continue to become an even more prominent presence aboard in years to come. However, there are limitations of smart device technology. Take navigation as a case study. A modern GPS chartplotter will utilize a proper 10-hertz receiver to get an accurate coordinate fix, but no 2018 smart phone has that kind of capability

Above: Siren Marine's vessel monitoring system works with a central hub, mountable sensors, and an app. Below: Garmin's Panoptix 3D forward facing sonar is pictured below in the field. Why look down when you can look ahead?

Not only does it make a loud noise to alert the skipper, but the last known coordinates (presumably the location where the person went over) are also displayed. A handy display of the bearing to the overboard coordinates and distance to the point are also displayed, so the skipper can easily drive the boat in the right direction. Overall, it’s a simple, ingenious use of the smart device that costs around $90. PLANETARY CONNECTIVITY

The CrewWatcher is a device and app combination that's meant to help with man overboard situations. The small orange unit easily attaches to a life jacket. When contact with a linked smart device is broken by falling into the water, a compass view to the overboard person (or pet) is displayed for ease of retrieval.

with its GPS locator. The key to maximize the smart device in this instance is to pair it with an on-board GPS receiver, sold for around $100. The receiver is unobtrusively mounted somewhere aboard, and the wireless technology transmits that GPS data directly into the smart device that acts as a handheld display screen. The pair and play strategy is a clever one that addresses the on-average less powerful capabilities of smart devices that by themselves are a jack of all traits, master of none when it comes to roles aboard.

One great example of how a smart device can fill a niche aboard is the CrewWatcher, a crew overboard alarm device and app combo that hit the market last year. The CrewWatcher is housed in a waterproof plastic casing that’s easily worn. The device is in constant wireless communication with a linked onboard smart device, and unless somebody goes over, will go unnoticed during the boat trip. If somebody does go over, the wireless connection is broken and the app automatically triggers a man overboard alarm.

Autonomous Wakeboarder The Personal Watercraft That Comes When You Call It The autonomous technology of land and sky with aerial drones is finding its way onto the water. One such example is the new SOLO personal watercraft, a remotely-controlled, high-powered aquatic drone boat that is designed to pull a tech savvy water skier/wakeboarder. The sporty fiberglass craft is 675 pounds and propelled by a 150-horsepower threecylinder, four-stroke Rotax inboard gas engine. The user controls the craft via wireless technology, and the SOLO cuts the engine automatically when it runs more than 40’ feet from the operator. It can even be summoned to the operator at idle if commanded to do so. More info is available at solowatersports.com. 78 NORTHWEST YACHTING || MARCH 2018

The promise of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites, largely considered the most practical way to cover 100% of the planet, is captivating the communications industry. The idea is to blanket Earth in a swarm of small LEO satellites, which are different than the current far-orbit geo-synchronous Earth orbit (GEO) and medium-Earth orbit (MEO) satellites that have made up the backbone of communications since the 1960s. The consequence for this LEO effort is that cellular, internet, etc. coverage will probably become a reality farther and farther from shore. Redmond, Washington-based Kymeta Corp. has made a new flat-panel satellite antenna that does away with the dish design we’re familiar with. This antenna is built to integrate with the current GEO and MEO systems, as well as the LEO one that is in the works. Although there are not nearly enough LEO satellites to fulfill the dream of planetary coverage now, it’s definitely possible within the decade. ELECTRIC SLIDE Electricity takes a more central role aboard these days, largely thanks to continuous improvement of batteries and battery banks. While lead acid remains the most common battery type, improvements within the lead acid family are making leapfrog advances. Within the lead acid family, absorbent glass mat batteries (AGMs) are replacing the distilled water of old-school lead acid batteries with maintenance-free solid, conductive fiberglass material. These AGM batteries store substantially more electricity for their weight than their wet lead acid counterparts and are priced well at a few hundred dollars more per unit. Within the last year or so, the fiberglass in some AGM batteries has been replaced with carbon foam (notably the Firefly Energy Oasis Microcell™ Carbon Foam line). The carbon foam is more resistant to sulfation, the crystallization of lead sulfate often brought on from frequent


intense energy draws of lead acid batteries. Sulfation is the leading cause of death for traditional lead acid batteries. Thanks to the sulfation resistance, a user can draw from a carbon foam battery more aggressively, even down to near-zero, without consequence. Lithium ion batteries also make sporadic appearances aboard these days, but they are largely considered cost prohibitive and have some quirks that haven’t translated perfectly from land to sea yet. One such quirk is that overcharging lithium ion batteries is not a benign process, and they can overheat and even explode. Having a smart charging system goes a long way to prevent this, but boaters will have a steeper learning curve with these than more common and affordable AGMs. The previously mentioned smart chargers are also a landmark of boating technology evolution and should continue to improve in the coming years. Every kind of battery has its idiosyncrasies when it comes to charging up, and smart chargers are programmable to the proper sequence to match one’s batteries. The modern combination of a smart charger and a carbon foam AGM battery bank is about as sweet as it gets in 2018. Throw into the mix a monitoring system that talks to your smart phone (or watch), and you’re on your way to be a posterchild for the 21st century boater. Advances in electrical technology are also prompting more manufacturers to take a stab at all-electric and electric hybrid propulsion technology. A notable company in this field is the German-based Torqeedo. Mostly known for their all-electric outboards, they have developed the Deep Blue Hybrid technology that combines large battery banks and a high voltage diesel generator to convert sailboats 40' to 80' into aquatic Priuses. While this technology is still taking its baby steps, it’s not inconceivable that the concept becomes more and more feasible as batteries get smaller and more powerful.

Above, Left to Right: The Torqeedo Deep Blue i system utilizes the BMW i high capacity batteries from the car manufacturer to make an electric hybrid sportboat; Here we see the guts of the Deep Blue i system.

One such example is the SmartFind G8 AIS and Kannad SafePro AIS EPIRBs from the McMurdo Group that hit the market last year. These are the first to integrate a handheld EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon, activates an international satellite search and rescue system) with an AIS. With AIS devices that now fit in the palm of a hand, the safety of AIS is much easier to tap into. AIS is only as good as the number of boaters who use it, and in this regard, boating Americans have traditionally been less

enamored with the tech than their European counterparts. However, that trend appears to be changing as more Americans hop onto the AIS bandwagon with more convenient devices. Expect more casual AIS use among American recreational boaters in the years to come. Norris Comer is the managing editor of Northwest Yachting magazine.

Hull Innovations The "Star Wars" Foiling Hull Innovations with regards to hull design have been a hallmark of the marine sphere since the prehistoric beginning of boats. It’s a given that hull designs from the recreational to the commercial will continue to be tweaked and evolve with time, and it seems inevitable that hull forms will also become higher performing and more specialized. One such example is the recently unveiled AC75 concept for the upcoming 36th America’s Cup (2021). The fully foiling monohull from Emirates Team New Zealand and Luna Rossa design teams features highly adjustable twin canting T-foils. The AC75 will adjust these twin foils dependent upon the situation to do anything from taking, increasing stability, docking, or righting itself from a capsize. Remember in "Star Wars: A New Hope" when the Rebels in their X-wing starfighters “lock S-foils in attack positions” before attacking the death star? It’s kind of like that. Check it out at americascup.com.

AIS: SIMPLER AND STATESIDE The automatic identification system (AIS) that tracks vessels by constantly relaying vessels’ positions is not new technology, but the AIS device market is getting more compact and user-friendly. Large commercial vessels, forced to do so out of legal compliance, have utilized AIS for years but the systems were not necessarily geared toward small recreational craft.

Built in 1962, the Hecate Ranger once roamed B.C.’s waters as a forest service workhorse. Today, she’s a very unique pleasure yacht. Our longtime friends Ken Lane and Kirsten Thomassen invited my husband Garth Wilcox and me to come aboard their motoryacht, the Hecate Ranger, to Victoria for the Classic Boat Show this past summer. It didn’t take but a second to say yes. I had already helped bring their new “baby” down from Port Townsend after they’d commissioned her, although “baby” might be a serious understatement for the gorgeous 65-footer they’d acquired in the fall of 2015. For Ken and Kirsten, longtime sailboat racers, venturing into motor boats was a paradigm shift. They weren’t in the market for another boat. At that point, they already had their hands full with both a Thistle and Thunderbird sailboats. But the previous owner of the Hecate Ranger, John Woodard, had recently died. The vessel had been his love, a boat he’d doted upon and lived aboard for nearly 20 years. Ken and Kirsten realized this beauty needed a new caretaker. That led to tours of the vessel, which sparked fantasies of possibly living aboard. Though the vessel never officially went on the market, Ken and Kirsten soon considered themselves serious buyers—understandable once you see her. The vessel is eye candy for the wooden boat aficionado with clean lines and a stately beauty. She has stain-glassed windows and is filled with antique brass lamps, artwork, finely carved furniture,

O

and oriental carpets that could grace a fine craftsman home. Everywhere you look detailed flourishes—such as forged bronze fittings, door handles and signage, moldings to support shelving, and nautical-themed extras—add to her appeal. She’s carefully outfitted with all the comforts of home, including a fridge/ freezer, microwave, trash compactor, washer/dryer, and more. With four staterooms, there’s plenty of room for entertaining inside and on the upper or lower deck of the fantail. Even a diehard sailor is vulnerable to her charms, and I, too, fell under her spell. After considerable maintenance at Haven Boat Works in Port Townsend, Washington, Ken and Kirsten were eager to enjoy her. That first time out of the yard in early 2016, I joined them to guide this beauty down the Sound and back into the slip across from the Bainbridge ferry dock where she’d spent many years. There she holds a commanding view of Eagle Harbor from her fantail, but Ken and Kirsten planned to explore farther afield in the Salish Sea aboard their “new” boat. On one of their first cruises, they headed to Port Townsend for the start of the second Race to Alaska (R2AK) to cheer on their daughter and son-in-law, who were racing aboard Jungle Kitty. Ken and Kirsten anchored Hecate Ranger on the start line, and I mean on the start line, which they discovered shortly before

boats began lining up. Needless to say, they had a front row seat for the starting sequence. Garth and I were sorry to miss that trip up the Sound for the race start and the chance to relax aboard in the San Juan Islands while their kids slogged the rest of the way to a second-place finish in Ketchikan, Alaska. We were not about to miss another chance to cruise this luxurious yacht.

WORKING HERITAGE Despite her appearance, Hecate Ranger was not born of luxury. She began her life as a workboat in the British Columbia Forestry Service fleet, one of hundreds of vessels that plied the rough waters in and around British Columbia. These boats connected lonely rough-andtumble logging communities and station outposts spread out over thousands of miles along the coastline. According to Michael Coney, author of Forest Ranger, Ahoy (Porthole Press, Sidney BC, 1983), “Since 1911 the wooden ships of the Forest Service have fought the seas, bearing their crews across storm-tossed straits, through tide-torn channels, up inlets where the wind howls like an animal, wherever there is work to be done, wherever the job takes them...” Life on the rugged west coast of British Columbia was hard. Roads were few and air transport in its infancy; so the ocean was the highway for loggers, fisherman, and other hardy people who

Hecate Ranger had many memorable moments in the forestry service, some happy, some ignoble. Clockwise from top left: One of many rendezvous with aerial monitoring hardware, in this case a Bell 206 Helicopter; Downtime 70’s-style - taking a swim by swinging off the outriggers; The crew taking in some downtime ashore among driftwood logs after a long day (Photos: Warren Berg).

lived in isolated groups on the edge of the rocky wilderness.” By the end of WWI, logging was on the upswing. New ranger stations opened, and the Forest Branch had accumulated a fair-sized fleet. Initially, I assumed all forest boats looked like the Hecate Ranger, but soon learned that nearly every boat was different. According to Coney, there were eleven Assistant Ranger launches that were 32’ long, built of fir and cedar, nicknamed “Blimps” because their portly styling was reminiscent of the wartime non-rigid airships. Some of them were rented, but most were purchased from among the serviceable boats available

at the time. They patrolled and policed logging operations in diverse conditions, and were also used for administration, inspections, and fire suppression. The fleet transported equipment and tree seedlings, and also served as accommodations for the rangers. As Coney notes drily in his book, some were more suitable than others.

THE SIXTIES & BEYOND The Forestry fleet continued to expand. In the early sixties, John Paynter, the head of the B.C. Forest Service, wanted a boat capable of operating across Hecate Strait and around the Queen Charlotte islands, now known as Haida Gwaii. The Hecate

FOREST SERVICE FLEET MISADVENTURES Anecdotes shared by Michael Coney in his book Forest Ranger, Ahoy (Porthole Press, Sidney BC, 1983) One of the fleet, the Leila R., seemed cursed by bad luck. In January of 1921, the Leila R. went missing. She was presumed to be lost in storms off the coast while transporting a prisoner. In fact, after losing steerage, she had drifted for many hours before running aground on Banks Island. On her next voyage, her rear gasoline tank exploded after catching fire when a drunken crewmember was burning paint off the rails with a blow torch. Considered not worth saving, the boat was scuttled and sunk in 20 feet. Despite this bleak assessment, she was later raised and repaired at great expense and returned to service by the end of the year. She had one final disaster in 1924, when she The passenger ship Lady Cynthia ran onto the rocks during a storm. sliced the A.L.

Sadly, several crew members were lost, either sucked into the churning blades of the aft half of their boat or drowned in the accident. One man managed to pull himself aboard the aft half of the A.L. Bryant, only to realize the forward part of the boat was missing. Along with him, several others had to be rescued from the floating bow. Another man was submerged in the engine compartment.

Ranger was designed to be that boat. She was constructed of yellow cedar in 1962 by West Coast Salvage, a marine salvage shipyard on False Creek, with a keel and a keelson, sister keels running alongside the keelson, and a false keel on the bottom. Her keel structure is T-shaped, about 4’ wide and 4’ deep to protect her in the event that she ran onto a rock. She was built to be super strong, with 2” thick planking and an oak frame 10” center-to-center, for use in a high-stress environment. These were quality construction materials that were once cheap and abundant: clear, old-growth timber. All equipment and outfitting was commercial quality that was easy to repair and maintain. Initially she had a rolling problem, so shortly after she was built they added lead ballast. Unfortunately, it tended to disappear back in the days when the price of lead rose to a highmarket value. The Hecate Ranger was the largest boat ever built for the B.C. Forest Service and quickly became the queen of the fleet. Despite her graceful lines, Hecate Ranger was a workboat, and she, too, had her moments of embarrassment. In July 1979, while getting underway in the early hours, the Hecate Ranger struck Datum Rock in Chatham Sound. There she sat, high and dry, until they could pull her off. The official account of the incident blamed an overreliance on older radar units with idiosyncrasies, but some of the co-ed crew aboard reported later that it might have had more to do with a lack of attention on all parts resulting from hangovers after a wild party the evening before.

THE END OF THE FLEET When the B.C. Forestry fleet was no longer needed, it was disbanded, and most of its vessels sold to private parties. Like all the Forest Service boats, Hecate Ranger was gray when Frank Huff bought


the boat from the B.C. government in 1984. She had originally come with berths for 12 and a galley that was walled off from the mess hall, but these features were changed in her early days of private use. Huff took the vessel to Alaska a number of times. Batwings had been added for stabilizing to reduce roll, though it is unclear when this modification occurred. It was an unusual idea that turned out to be a bad one. When John Woodard bought the boat, he immediately made modifications. One of the first things to go were the batwings. In 2001, John Woodard revamped the boat extensively at Anderson Shipwrights next to the old Marco drydock on the south side of the Ship Canal in Seattle. He removed the tow winch, added the fantail and the overhead walkways, and extended the upper deck. He replaced and reinforced the bulwarks and ladders to the upper deck. He also added the many touches that gave her a regal style. Like Cinderella, she was transformed into a beauty. With all the comforts of home, John enjoyed living aboard her for nearly 20 years.

The Hecate Ranger ran aground in 1979 on Datum Rock in Chatham Sound. While technology was blamed initially, it seems likely that human error played a bigger factor in the incident.

fleet attempts to keep track of as many B.C. Ranger vessels as they can. Many of these former B.C. Rangers can be found sprinkled around Salish Sea marinas today. A rugged vessel with “Ranger” in its name might well be one of the former fleet. In 2017, the fleet chose to coincide the Rendezvous with the Victoria Classic Boat Festival. Eager to see all these classic vessels, Garth and I were keen to join Ken and Kirsten for the fun. We all had a wonderful weekend meeting fellow owners of the B.C. Forest Rangers and exploring their boats. This was the first

time that Hecate Ranger had attended a Rendezvous in many years, and members were excited to see her again. As Ken Lane told fellow fleet members when they gathered aboard for cocktails, tours, and photos, “It’s an honor to be the caretaker of a vessel with such a rich history, even for a little while.” Wendy Hinman is an adventurer, speaker, and the award-winning author of two books: Tightwads on the Loose and Sea Trials. For more information, please visit wendyhinman.com.

RESTORATION In 2015, when Ken Lane first bought the boat, he took her to Haven Boat Works in Port Townsend. The primary task was to replace the original spikes that fastened the hull and to re-caulk all the seams, but he tackled many other projects as well while the boat was pulled apart. With his newly-restored boat ready, Ken Lane reached out to fellow B.C. forest fleet owners. They were ecstatic to have Hecate Ranger return to the fleet association, which formed in 1992 after the B.C. Ranger vessels were sold into private hands. It was Norm Wright, a new owner living on the retired Ranger launch Nesika, who contacted other owners and suggested a B.C. Ranger Rendezvous. The first gathering in 1992 marked the beginning of a long-standing tradition that has continued for more than 20 years. Every year there’s a squadron reunion, usually scheduled during the long Canadian weekend in late August. Each year, different boats attend and the

RACING SHEET

A Wild Ride in the South Sound Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson February 17 marked the third installment of the winter South Sound Series, the Toliva Shoals race, and it was frankly a thrilling exercise in insanity. Hosted by Olympia Yacht Club, the race is the furthest south of any major Northwest competition and starts from the state capital itself. The race is a favorite and always interesting as most racers rarely make it south of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge in the normal course of a season. On Saturday morning, tor-

rential rain and winds blowing cars around on I-5 set the tone on the way south from Seattle, and those of us in the back seat continually refreshed forecast apps in hopes that something was going to change. As we arrived at the marina, rigged the boat for the heavy conditions, double checked everyone’s safety gear, and shoved off the dock, we were constantly evaluating the fun-todanger ratio. The course is more complicated than most in the Pacific

Northwest, snaking around the South Sound inlets and islands. Leaving Olympia, the fleets headed toward Dofflemyer Point and then Johnson Point to make their way out into the Nisqually River Delta. Heading counter clockwise, the boats leave Anderson Island to port, then round the Toliva Shoals bell buoy to continue along McNeil Island under the shadow of the penitentiary. Then it’s back through Dana Passage to the finish in Budd Inlet under the

shadow of the capitol building. The prestart dealt with wind in the high teens and occasional puffs into the twenties. Most crews opted for a reefed main and blade jib setup as the knockdown puffs made for some white-knuckle moments as the fleet jockeyed for position during the starting sequence. Cruising fleets got under way first with little drama and no spinnakers flying. As the racing fleets began to line up for their starts, it was all that skippers and crews could

Results: Toliva Shoals/South Sound Series #3 do to avoid collisions. Off the start line was a drag race with the westerly winds shifting violently as the puffs rolled through the fleet, forcing many boats to round up with some near misses making for exciting moments. Several brave crews tried to hoist spinnakers and were quickly reprimanded for their efforts with dramatic wipeouts or broken gear as the puffs intensified near Dofflemyer Point. After rounding the point, the big boats were mixed up with smaller fleets, making for some excitement as wild roundups resulted in some close calls. The drama was intensified by several blown out sails and even a broken boom onboard the 51’ EQUUS. Impressively, a broken boom didn’t stop the well-practiced team from safely hoisting a storm trysail and finishing the race in second in the PHRF 3 class. On board Charlie Macaulay’s Farr39 Absolutely, we kept preparing to shake out our reefed main and get more power, but each time were politely reprimanded by an intense shifting puff. Staying steadily above 10 knots of boat speed with the blade jib and a reefed mainsail was enough for us as we worked through the fleet towards Anderson Island. On the run to the Toliva Shoals bell buoy we finally mustered the courage to hoist the smallest spinnaker we had onboard and were rewarded with a steady 15 knots on the ego meter (boat speed). A few roundups and a safe douse was all we were looking for as we prepared to sail upwind in what was now steadily 30 knots of wind. The steep chop made upwind progress difficult on the lightweight Absolutely. Ronald Holbrook and crew onboard Constellation did a fantastic job of setting up their boat for the conditions and worked their way past us to finish in second behind the venerable J/160 JAM, who led the way throughout the race. While days such as these are few and far between, it is important to learn from racing in high winds. While the adrenaline of taking waves over the bow and double-digit boat speed are

P RTS OF CALL

Olympia, Washington By Eva Seelye Venture as far south in Puget Sound as your keel allows, and you’ll stumble upon Washington’s capital city of Olympia. The capitol building’s masonry dome (the fourth largest in the world) towers overhead, as do the majestic Olympics to the west as you glide into Percival Landing. The city boasts a small-town vibe, which is pleasantly surprising given its legislative role. Olympia’s mismatched feel is accentuated by its architecture, renovated after earthquakes from past centuries, that imparts a grungy and intriguing look. Today, 19th century designs share walls with contemporary buildings, offering a surface-level understanding of “Oly’s” extensive history in a visual fashion. Incredible wall murals and other public art beckon visitors into the quiet city streets for deeper insights into the quirks and hidden secrets of the states’s capital. Arts and entertainment dominate much of Oly’s downtown attractions. Film, drama, and music are in no short supply – Rainy Day Records is a favorite for tunes, be it for live performances or for purchase. Vintage shops and moody cafes are on every corner, interspersed with bronze medallions that show off more historic landmarks than I could count. Banners drape across streets urging passersby to consider the environment. With over 40 local parks and a quality wildlife refuge, it’s easy to see the wildlife and natural landscapes Olympians strive to protect. If hippy culture means being environmentally aware, then Olympia is as hippy as it gets. Olympia wasn’t always green and grunge. The city began with the Salishin Squaxin Island People, traveling in canoes to and from the future town of Olympia. The first European settlers followed. The town once relied mostly on the famed Mosquito Fleet to ferry passengers,

products, and supplies into the town, finding it was much easier to use the water as a freeway than to clear a road through the dense forest. The waterfront quickly became a maritime hub, putting Olympia on the map as the first port of entry in Puget Sound. The two World Wars exponentially contributed to Olympia’s economic growth; the once prominent lumber industry boomed, and a wealth of military-related cargo was shipped out of its port. Today, the city’s

economy is largely fueled by the government, but remnants of pre-capital Olympia – built on the northern end of the Oregon Trail - still finds its way into the city’s culture. Visiting boaters are spoiled for accommodations, most of which are located within walking distance of Olympia’s delights. Settle into one of Olympia’s four marinas, or temporarily dock downtown at Port Plaza for a free four-hour stay.

1. Capital Visit Washington became a U.S. Territory in 1853, immediately naming Olympia as the provisional territorial capital. Regardless of challenges by surrounding towns for the sought-after title, Olympia was named the official capital when Washington became the 42nd state in 1889. World War I encouraged economic and governmental growth, which led to the completion of Washington’s Legislative Building in 1928, featuring the tallest masonry dome in North America at that time. After a few earthquakes and renovation projects, Olympia has developed into the government-fueled port city it is today. Take a free guided or self-guided tour tailored to your interests through Washington’s capitol grounds between the hours of 1000 and 1500 hours on weekdays and 1100 and 1500 hours on weekends. See the Legislative Building aka The Washington State Capitol, Botanical Gardens, Governor’s Mansion, or get an introduction to representative democracy on a civic education tour. Stroll through the grounds at your leisure, exploring the many monuments and memorial sites sprinkled throughout. Picket signs optional!

2. Farm Fresh Head over to the Olympia Farmer’s Market on Capital Way N for 152 days of fresh, local goods from small-scale producers – one of Olympia’s top-notch attractions for residents and visitors alike. The Olympia community has been coming together for 42 years to enjoy and celebrate local produce, fresh fruit, baked goods, artisan crafts, seafood, meat and dairy. Food from the best restaurants around can be found at the market as well in a structure completely dedicated to the weekly event. Pick up clams and oysters straight out of Puget Sound from market vendor Sound Fresh, add a few veggies to the mix, and head back to your vessel to cook up an incredible feast before heading back to the market for live music on Saturday nights! Days vary with the seasons, but you can always count on visiting from 1000 to 1500 hours every Saturday. Visit their website olympiafarmersmarket.com for details and vendor information.


3. Tugboat Charm

South Sound

N

Olympia’s Percival Landing is home to a vintage 100-year-old tugboat, Sand Man. The 60’ tug was built in 1908 by Crawford & Reid of Tacoma where it spent its younger years as a commercial vessel in Puget Sound. Thirteen years after Sand Man raced in Olympia’s annual Labor Day tugboat race, she retired in 1987 to undergo a few restorations. The nonprofit organization, The Sand Man Foundation, was established in 1997 with the purpose of restoring and maintaining the unique tugboat.

The original wood planking, decks, and cabins had significantly deteriorated over the years, leaving the vessel in need of some serious repairs. The foundation replaced much of the wood while maintaining its original structure from 1999 to 2005. In 1998, the vessel was listed on the National Register of Historic Places and was re-launched on September 1, 2005 after nearly seven years on land. She’s now docked at Port Plaza and operates as a floating museum dedicated to the maritime heritage of Olympia and South Puget Sound. The tug is free of charge and open to the public on most weekends year-round. See tugsandman.com for more details.

Gastronomy Craving Vietnamese? Oly’s got it. Thai? Easy. A burger the size of your face? Head over to Tugboat Annie’s. With South Puget Sound’s booming shellfish industry, Budd Bay Café is a popular must-do. I dined at this classic Northwest fish house with a view over West Bay accompanying my lunch. Warm sourdough bread followed me to the booth; a fantastic toasty starter preceding my appetizer of Budd Bay Dungeness crab cakes with red bell pepper aioli ($13.99). They weren’t messing around; these cakes were all crab - dense and delicious. The seafood fanatic that I am, I chose the seafood mixed grill with tri-citrus butter for my lunch entree – a sampler of sorts. Once they said it’s their most popular dish, there was no need for further review. The dish came with fresh salmon, blackened true cod, and prawns, served with rice pilaf and fresh vegetables ($26.99).

5. Arts and Culture

6. The Oly Stage

Olympia is crawling with art and culture. Public art dots Olympia’s 1,200 acres of parks, galleries peak out of street-front windows, and alleyways are lined with intricate murals. There are plenty of great boutique shops ripe with gifts for loved ones (and treats for yourself).

It’s next to impossible to have a dull night at The Washington Center for Performing Arts (The Center). The Center has long been a community gathering place even before its current reincarnation that occurred in 1985. Beginning as the Liberty Theater in 1924, the building was almost completely rebuilt, with the exception of its exterior walls that encase the modern interior with a 1920’s architectural façade.

Another example of Olympia’s culture lies almost hidden without a sign on the edge of Water Street on the outskirts of Heritage Park. The community-driven Procession of Species studio offers an open invitation to gather, create, and express your appreciation of the natural world. Take one of their many low-cost workshops, or attend the studio on your own to make a giant puppet, float, costume, mask, batik, and more which will then be featured in the annual Earth Day Procession of the Species – part of a seven-week program of art, music, and dance workshops dedicated to inspiring understanding, appreciation, and protection of wildlife and wild places. Or participate in an Olympia Arts Walk. Twice a year (in April and October), thousands of Olympians gather downtown for innovative artistic experiences. Businesses and organizations transform their spaces into creative outlets filled with demonstrations, art, and performances. Each block is filled with incredible eye-catching experiences; you never know what might pop up in Olympia’s artistic streets!

“Life is 440 horsepower in a 2-cylinder engine."

—Henry Miller

Terry McCartney

Terry McCartney has been around boats since his childhood and got his start on the water playing around with and working on his own boats as a kid. He learned through necessity how to take care of a boat and motor. His first paying gig in the boat industry was in high school. He worked at a boatyard fixing outboard motors, and from there got into hydroplane racing and hydroplane outboards. During this time McCartney met Greg Jacobsen, who would later become his business partner. He and Jacobsen together purchased Jacobsen’s Marine from founder Bob Jacobsen.

Tom Ross

Tom Ross, much like McCartney, grew up around boats and anglers. He remembers crabbing with his dad at five years old, and many times in his childhood took his dinghy cruising around Camano Island. McCartney gave him is first job, going to work at Jacobsen’s Marine, at 16 years old.

O

ther than the boat hull itself, and rigging when applicable, the motor is the biggest factor in a how a boat performs. Outboard motors are traditionally seen on smaller craft, but with their versatility and convenience, the outboard motor has become more favored among manufacturers of larger boats. This increased popularity has inspired us to dive into outboards and get the info you need for your next motor purchase. The motor you choose can make or break your boating experience, so you need to know what you’re looking for. There’s an outboard that’s best for trolling around in a dinghy at 3 knots, another for spending a few days offshore fishing, a different one for opening the throttle to make some waves, and everything in between. Outboards come in different strokes, a range of horse powers, various weights, and utilize different fuel sources. The perfect motor for your craft might not even be close to what someone else needs to get the job done; the battle is finding the perfect Goldilocks fit for your craft. And that’s just the beginning, for outboard owners should know how to clean the motor, how to store it, and what fuel is best. We decided to sit down with Terry McCartney and Tom Ross of Jacobsen’s Marine, an outboard motor dealer in Edmonds, Washington, and asked them about all things outboard motors.

Q: What advice would you give a brand new boater on what outboard to purchase? Terry: Well, the place to start would be to figure out what you want to do, what type of boating you see yourself doing, and if it’s a boat you’re going to cruise with. Once you’ve established your needs with a boat, that dictates your needs in an engine. To have an adequate performing boat, depending on its size and weight, will determine how big a motor you need. Tom: We have a lot of entry level guys that come through, and it’s good to keep it simple. You don’t want to overwhelm them with a big boat, especially if they’re going into boating for the first time. Think 19-footer, single-axel trailer, single engine, reliable. The 19’ Grady White is probably one of our most popular entry-level boats. Q: What are some advantages of an outboard over an inboard motor? Terry: Winterization is not as big of a factor with outboards. With outboard motors, there’s no need to drain them and they’re less complicated than inboards, so they’re less costly to own. You mentioned inboards, well there’s straight inboards which have the shaft and the rudder and fixed strut, that’s big boats usually 36' and above. Inboard/outboards are common 34' and below, where you have an automotive engine that’s been converted to marine, and then the PTO (power take off) is in a horizontal plane. It’s gotta go down, and then it’s gotta go to the propeller, so you have two transmissions. That way involves a lot more through-hulls with U-joints and gimble bearings,

bellows, more vulnerable moving parts, and because the engine was an automotive engine that’s been converted, the life expectancy has been diminished. It’s not uncommon to see a ten-year-old stern drive boat on its second engine. It’s also nice not to have to worry about a through-hull with outboards. Tom: For safety, no throughhulls is great. I remember once a real nice 28’ boat across the way was nose up, half-sunk in the water. They suspected that one of the through-hull fittings or a bellows leaked and caused it to take on water, sunk it, through no fault of the owner, just happenstance. Outboard boats can be built as unsinkable boats. Grady White is an example. That company builds boats for people who want to fish offshore. They’re strictly outboard boats, and the thing that really pushed them into that (outboard motors) is a guy fishing 50 miles out into the ocean finds some comfort knowing that he’s in an unsinkable boat. If it’s a case where they can fill the boat with foam and make it self-bailing, you can’t put enough water in it to cause it to go under. An inboard has a big hole in the floor where the engine sits down below the waterline. If you swamp the cockpit, it fills the engine room with water. Now you have a big cast iron anchor in the back that pulls the boat under. Also, there’s no ignition source down in the bilge with outboards. With inboard/outboards, you have to run a fan for four or five minutes before you try and start it just to evacuate any fumes from below deck. With an outboard boat, there’s nothing in the bilge that


could spark or blow it up. Q: Outboards come in both a pull-start and an electric-start. What are the pros and cons of each? Terry: Well the electric-start has to have a battery. If it’s a portable boat, and you don’t want a 30-lb. battery to deal with, you’re going to limit yourself to a pull-start motor. Tom: There are specific guys that want that pull-start, like a sailor, to keep down the weight. You just want something simple, like a six-horse power, pull-start with internal gas tank. Everything is contained. If you don’t want it aboard, you can take it off. Maybe an owner of a larger boat just wants a backup motor. A true redundancy back-up has a pull start because there’s no electrical going to it. You can start it whenever, long as you’ve got fuel. Q: What are the pros and cons of short shaft outboards vs. long shaft outboards? Terry: Well the propellers are always the same distance below the bottom of the boat. In the event of a long shaft, that just means they’ve built the back of the boat up higher, and they’ve put a long shaft motor on. The propeller stays in the same place when the motor is mounted, but the transom is raised up 5” from a short shaft situation. It’s a sea worthiness thing usually and as an axillary motor on a big boat. If we have a 20’ boat with a main engine and a little trolling motor, they’ll almost always be a long shaft or an extra-long shaft. That’s because big boats are in big seas, and as the boat is out moving in the chop and the guys are just trolling at two knots, the higher the motor is above the waterline and the more protected it is from getting drenched. A small inflatable would usually be a short shaft, 15”, and that’s based on the manufacturers design. You have to cater to the boat, and they’re built for short shaft, long shaft, extra-long shaft, and there’s even an ultra-long shaft, 30” model. Some of our big offshore fishing boats are equipped with a single engine and a 30” shaft. It’s all about matching the motor to the boat. The boat builder dictates what the boat needs, and then the dealer or the consumer has to outfit the boat accordingly. Q: What is your most popular outboard motor?

Terry: That’s a tough one, there isn’t any one model. Tom: They range from two and half to 350 horse power, and we sell them all. It’s about getting the right shoe for Cinderella. Terry: Exactly. For a tender market, it’s all about portability. A boater wants to be able to carry it and then break it down. One thing to think about is do you want enough power to plane the boat, and get up on a step and go 15, 20 knots, or is it just a bay boat that’s going to go 3 or 4 knots? A boater that’s going to go 3 to 4 knots buys a four or six horsepower. A boater that wants to plane it, and still pick up the motor, buys a 9.9, because that’s the biggest you can get and still carry it around. When you get to the boaters who have a console in the boat (where you’re driving it from a steering station), they often want electric start, power trim and tilt, and remote controls. They’re going to buy the 20-plus horsepower. Q: Are there any brand standouts? Tom: In horse power, it all just depends what bracket you’re at. For the small four to six horse powers, I don’t think anyone can touch the Yamaha. Terry: I think across the board, Yamaha is thought of by the industry as the king of the hill. They are the motor that the guides, commercial fishermen, and other working boaters use. Generally, Yamahas are simple enough in that they’re extremely reliable. It’s kind

Jacobsen’s Marine Founder Bob Jacobsen started Jacobsen’s Marine in 1951, originally in the Ballard district of Seattle, Washington. A consummate boater, Jacobsen was an avid outboard racer. Bob eventually sold the business to his son Greg Jacobsen and business partner Terry McCartney, who have kept the tradition of outboard excellence alive and well in the current Edmonds, Washington, location.

of like a modern Toyota technology; very similar fuel injection and similar block and running gear design. They’re probably either number one or number two in terms of volume sold. Mercury is usually right up there in production, in terms of market share. Q: What does the fuel injection bring to the table? Terry: The engine is self-managed, so you don’t have to know how to start it. You don’t have to know how to choke it, you just

push the button or pull the string. It self-manages the throttle, choke, and fuel system. Tom: Fuel injection helps with longevity too because we’re not seeing them coming back for carburetor issues. Carburetor issues are usually the biggest thing we see because people don’t run their outboard all year round. They run it for two, three months and then store it. Terry: If they don’t properly store the outboard, the fuel system Continued on Page 99

New Anacortes Boat and Yacht Show Taking Form By Norris Comer

A recent announcement from the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA) that unveiled plans for the inaugural Anacortes Boat and Yacht Show, May 17 through 20, naturally prompted curiosity about specifics. The driving force behind the show is a partnership between the NMTA and the Anacortes Chamber of Commerce (ACC). “In looking for a producer of a boat show in Anacortes, we were all so impressed with the

professionalism of the staff at the NMTA,” said Stephanie Hamilton, President of the ACC. “We have a shared vision of building a show that is for everyone.” Although, as with any new show, there is a steep learning curve, NMTA President George Harris says exhibitor applications are coming in. At the time of this writing, there are 28 official applicants with an expectation of around 125. The physical layout of the show will mostly be hosted

Volvo Penta Wins Award By Norris Comer

Volvo Penta received the annual Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI) Award presented by the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) for the company’s marine sterndrives on February 16 at the Miami International Boat Show. Notably, this win was Volvo Penta’s 15th consecutive in the category in a row, making it the only marine sterndrive manufacturer to win the award so many times. “We are especially grateful for the efforts of our boatbuilder and dealer partners who played a big role in this unprecedented 15th consecutive CSI award,” said Ron Huibers, president of Volvo Penta of the Americas. “Our next-generation gasoline engines together with the awardwinning Forward Drive and Easy Drain innovations, have won accolades for their strong performance, fuel efficiency, and proven reliability; and all are backed by our comprehensive warranty programs.” 92 NORTHWEST YACHTING || MARCH 2018

The award signifies that the sterndrives achieved and maintained a standard of 90 percent or higher in customer satisfaction scores. The scores are based upon surveys of customers who purchased a new boat or engine during the period from January 1 to December 31, 2017. Volvo Penta has approximately 3,500 dealers in over 130 countries, with diesel and gasoline engines ranging from 10 to 1,000 horsepower.

Ron Huibders accepts the 15th consecutive CSI Award for Volvo.

at Cap Sante Marina with a shuttle bus connecting exhibitors at the Anacortes Marina hub to the south. A circus-style tent for boating accessory exhibitors and space for trailered boats is planned for the parking lot of Cap Sante. “The timing is right,” says Harris. “Boat business is good right now, and manufacturers are building more boats and new models, and dealers have more inventory.” Within the NMTA, familiar industry names sit on the Anacortes

Boat and Yacht Show Committee, with Chair Andy Schwenk of Northwest Rigging at the helm. Other members include Mary LeFleur (ALT Insurance Group), Howard Bean (North Harbor Diesel), Kelly Hawley (Tom-N-Jerry’s Boat Center), Russ Meixner (West Yachts), Larry Graf (Aspen Power Catamarans), Paul Sorensen (BST Associates), Steve Brown (Seaworthy Yachts and Brokerage), and Mark Bunzel (Fine Edge Publishing). Notably, the timing is not far off from the Bremerton-based Trawlerfest (May 5 to 8). Perhaps a boater can set a northerly course through the Sound to attend both shows? For those interested in exhibiting, the deadline is March 30. Point of contact is Katie McPhail via phone (206-634-0911) or email (katiemc@ nmta.net).

Stohr named WDFW Acting Director By Evin Moore

Joe Stohr has been selected by the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission to serve as the acting director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), according to a press release. Stohr, 61, has served as the deputy director of the WDFW for over ten years. He took the position of deputy director in 2007, where he oversaw department operations, including budget and finance, capital project management, performance and accountability, risk management, and human resources. Stohr is stepping in to replace former director Dr. Jim Unsworth, who announced his resignation in late January 2018 after serving for three years. The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission is a citizen panel appointed by the governor to set policy for the WDFW, and they will soon begin a nationwide search for a permanent director. “In the meantime, we know we are leaving the agency in very capable hands by placing Joe in charge,” said Brad Smith, chair of the commission. “His leadership

and extensive experience will be very helpful as we begin the search for a new director.” Before joining the WDFW Stohr, a longtime Olympia resident, worked for the Department of Ecology for 21 years, overseeing different programs, including water resources, oil spill prevenJoe Stohr tion and response, and hazardous waste management. Before that he was at the Department of Health for four years. As acting director, Stohr will be responsible for providing strategic direction and operational oversight for WDFW employees all over the state, and for transforming policy from the state Legislature into action. Stohr has appointed Amy Windrope, WDFW’s regional director for northern Puget Sound, to serve as his deputy director during his time as acting director.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Continued from Page 59

The plan could have shut down salmon fishing in most marine areas in the state. I would strongly recommend that anyone who is interested and involved in salmon fishing in the Northwest do their own reading and research on fishing issues to educate yourself. Then, if possible, attend a North of Falcon meeting that is open to the public. Information for meeting times and dates are on the WDFW website at wdfw.wa.gov. Another great way to learn and get involved is to join

recreational fishing groups such as Puget Sound Anglers (PSA). PSA has many chapters around the state and conducts monthly meetings that usually delve into fishing advocacy issues plus have a “How to Fish” component. Go to pugetsoundanglers.org for more info. Next month we will touch on opportunities to catch spot prawns, ling cod, and halibut…oh my! Until then, march right down to the boat, spring into action, and go get some!

Kevin’s Pick: For downrigger fishing, I’ve been very happy with my St. Croix Wild River downrigging rods. They have proven to be tough enough to stand up to my abuse and sensitive enough to feel the fight of a big king salmon. Available in useful actions and sizes, these rods are a great step up from bargain equipment into a real pro setup. I prefer the 10’6” model in moderate action and heavy power. Made from top quality materials and components, St. Croix rods are also backed by a great warranty. Go to stcroixrods.com for a look.

Pets on Boats

Winslow is a Maine Coon cat who loves the Northwest Yachting lifestyle. This sailor kitty is often seen with his human sidekicks, the Parkers, where he is happiest aboard a boat on Puget Sound with a fish in his mouth. Someday he’ll learn that halibut grow to be much bigger than this one, and he probably won’t be able to process his emotions. The idea behind Pets on Boats is simple: Take a cute or funny photo of your pet aboard your favorite boat, scribble down a funny photo caption, and send it to us with a bio of the pet at editorial@nwyachting.com. Our staff selects the best submission. Each monthly winners will have the honor of seeing their pet photo and caption run in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and will also receive a Northwest Yachting care package.

TATOOSH is only a 57 year old Classic beauty. Yet she can romp the ocean blue like a true youngster with grace, style and comfort. We’ve been coastal cruising TATOOSH for the past 28 years, and sailed her across to the South Pacific in 2014. Designed by Ben Seaborn in Seattle, built by Vic Franck Boatbuilding in Seattle, and owned by prominence in Seattle during the 60s70s, TATOOSH then pranced around Hawaii and the South Seas with Peter Fonda at the helm for another decade (clothing was optional).

This georgeous 80 foot ketch has legs! And she still shines and sparkles. I’m thinking one of you 30 year old “techy-whippersnappers” would have an eye for style, be brave enough to cast off your VR headset and get outdoors to smell the salty air. Or perhaps actually live on TATOOSH for maybe way cheaper than a studio apartment in Seattle’s Allentown.

Price reduced to $395,000.

ASK THE EXPERTS

OUTBOARDS Continued from Page 91

gets gunked up, and then it won’t run in the spring. Tom: And some guys go to ARCO to get the normal street gas. That gas has 10 percent ethanol in it, and that doesn’t store. It just doesn’t store. Terry: Ethanol has got a shelf life of about 90 days, and in a car that’s not a big deal, because in 90 days you’ll go through a tank of gas. In an outboard, it can be six months without use, and that’s a problem. Also, in regard to fuel injection, the manufacturers are going to fuel injection to meet emissions standards. Q: Has the ethanol thing really thrown a curve ball in what you guys do? Tom: Yeah it did. I think 2007 was the year the flyers started going out. Terry: I think what we saw is that the engines run fine on ethanol, but ethanol is 10 percent methyl-ethyl-alcohol, a solvent. When you take a fuel system (fuel tank and fuel hoses) that has been collecting varnish for 10, 15, 20 years, when you splash gasoline on the sides and top of a gas tank and it dries, it forms a thin layer of varnish. You keep splashing the sides and top of the tank and it keeps

the size of a sharp pencil tip and easy to clog. It doesn’t take much debris to plug that up, and then you’re pulling and pulling and pulling, and it’s not getting any gas because it’s plugged up. And then you bring it to us, and we clean it, and we explain the carburetor was plugged up. You put it back in your boat, and you hook the same gas can to it, and a week later it’s plugged up again! What a lot of users will do is they’ll take a contaminated gas can, and they’ll dump it, and try to reuse it. I’ve been doing this 50 years, and I’ve never been able to dump a gas can and get all the debris and gas out of it. You look in there and there’s just a few ounces of gas so you think oh, that can’t hurt anything! Well, those few ounces of gas are probably full of jelly and water and sand and crap, and it’ll still be in there even if you fill the can with new gas. Tom: Sometimes they can’t save the fuel. Terry: Sometimes fuel is so laden with moisture (alcohol attracts moisture). Boats have an open fuel system; their vents are open to the air. If it’s 90 percent humidity outside, they can suck moisture out of the air. That al-

Don’t wait until it’s broke to fix it, because in a boat that can mean an inconvenience and even a risk and safety hazard. building up varnish. Then we put alcohol in the form of ethanol into the gas (a solvent), it starts breaking down all this varnish that you’ve been collecting for 15 years. Now that debris is in the fuel, and it goes downstream. It’s plugging up filters, plugging up carburetors, and everything. The orifices in a carburetor on these little motors is about

cohol is grabbing at the moisture and collecting it. At some point, there’s so much moisture in the fuel that molecules drop out and they call it phase separation. Now you’ve got an inch of water in the bottom of the tank. The water goes to the bottom, the fuel sits above it, and fuel systems syphon fuel from the tank from a tube that syphons it off the bottom.

Grady-White models like these at Jacobsen's Marine are great affordable entry-level boats. Trailerable and easily paired with a trusty outboard, they are about as easy as it gets.

That’s why ethanol has created debris issues. I think it maybe even grows algae or something, because we’ll find a white substance or powder in the carburetors and fuel systems that we don’t recognize. It’s not sand and it’s not salt, it almost looks like brown sugar, and the guys in the shop think it might be some algae. Maybe there’s some organic matter in fuel that may be growing algae, I don’t know. But we’re seeing a lot less of that now. Tom: And all the marinas have swapped back. They went to ethanol, now they’re going back to non-ethanol. Terry: To E-Zero. E-Zero has a longer shelf life, is a much more stable fuel product, and is less maintenance. Q: Do you have any opinions when it comes to two versus four stroke? Tom: Again, I think it depends on the application. With four stroke motors, we got guys that putt around the lake, and that’s all they do. Just low time, low idle; four strokes are fantastic. I’ve got guys who like to perform and go fast, like these ski boats, and for them we’ve done a lot of repowers for two stroke. Evinrude specializes in two stroke motors. Those units are high performers. Terry: It’s easier, I think, for the manufacturers to meet the emission standards with a four stroke, so most everyone has gone to four stroke. They’re here to stay, but it doesn’t have the performance per pound that a two stroke has. If a boat is weight sensitive, the two stroke would be a better performer, but people like four strokes. A four stroke is the easiest way to meet

the emissions. Yamahas are four strokes. Most of the Evinrudes are two stroke, but they’re the only ones in the industry continuing to develop the two stroke. Interestingly, they’ve actually got a cleaner emissions rating than even the four strokes. Q: Are there any local manufacturers that are making waves in the outboard motor industry? Terry: The boat builders. Many Northwest boat builders are moving into outboard power, like the Ranger Tugs and Cutwater lines. Five years ago, those would have been inboard/outboardstyle products, and now it’s all outboard-style. Tom: Everyone is going to outboard power. Terry: Lindell too, all the bigger boats. Even 40’ plus boats, they’ll have four or five outboards on them rather than two inboards. It’s the way you can get the performance that today’s consumer demands. Tom: You can cruise at 30 knots compared to 20 that way, easy. Q: Any closing thoughts, anything on your minds? Tom: Maintenance is key, you gotta stay on top of it. Use it, let the horses run! Everyone recommends annual maintenance, it keeps everything going. Terry: Yeah, don’t wait until it’s broke to fix it, because in a boat that can mean an inconvenience and even a risk and safety hazard. Tom: Outboards are simple. That’s why I think so many manufacturers are going that route, because they hear the customers’ feedback. Life is just a lot simpler with the outboard.

Have questions about how the Classifieds work? Look no further! I placed my ad on January 5, why is it not in the January issue? The deadline for ad submission is the 5th of each month for the next month’s issue. In the above example, the January issue would have come out on January 1.

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

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