Contributor and professional delivery captain Chris Couch delves into the details of West Coast weather. We boat in a beautiful but sometimes unforgiving place. Ignorance helps no one.

Before the ferry system, there was the private Mosquito Fleet. This hodgepodge collection of mostly steam-powered boats kept Puget Sound connected (for a price!). Written by Peter Marsh.

FROM THE HELM

Fall Colors Afloat

While I was born in the Pacific Northwest and raised on the waters of Puget Sound, my husband, Chris, hails from Ohio, a place famous for its deciduous hardwood forests, cold, and snow. During our fall visits to Ohio, I can’t shake the feeling that someMichelle Zeasman thing important is missing. True, the horizon is empty of physical landmarks such as Mount Baker, Mount Rainier, or the majestic Olympic mountains, but—for me—the lack of year-round boating is the most problematic. Here, Chris and I have no trouble accessing the moderate waters of Puget Sound on our Bayliner 4788. We are spoiled in the Pacific Northwest with temperate weather allowing us to keep our boats in water, no matter the season. Autumn can certainly be enjoyed afloat around here, which is exactly how Chris and I intend to spend our fall! Speaking of fall’s arrival, competitive sailors are no doubt anticipating the serious racing season, traditionally starting just before the rains arrive. Be sure to check out this month’s great overview on the upcoming racing scene, compliments of Northwest Yachting’s racing correspondent, Doug Hansen. Picking the best windows to go boating is a required skill set for year-round boating in these parts, and Captain Chris Couch, a veteran delivery captain, shares his knowledge about offshore weather in this issue. While

PUBLISHER Michelle Zeasman-Gibbon michelle@nwyachting.com

everyone knows about red skies at night, Captain Couch’s feature will bolster a deeper understanding of weather. I’ve always loved the state’s fantastic ferry system and have used it plenty of times traveling to the islands or escaping I-5. While our ferry system is long-established, things weren’t always as reliable as they are now. Inside this issue, Peter Marsh, a longtime Northwest Yachting feature writer, reports on the now demised Mosquito Fleet, which provided transportation at a time when infrastructure was decidedly less developed. Irrespective of whether one is dealing with a state ferry, private yacht, or recreational boat, all vessels require maintenance, so the services of good boatwrights and mechanics are always in high demand around Puget Sound. However, training tomorrow’s boaters and marine professionals is a concern for our current maritime industry. Northwest Yachting columnist Peter Schrappen offers a comprehensive look at Core Plus, a vocational program that provides tomorrow’s marine professionals with the skills they need. Finally, as fall’s progression quickens, I advise all readers to get out on the water. These golden days are tonic for the soul, offering great views of the transitioning seasons. And that’s not to even mention Mount Rainier or Mount Baker! Not everyone is as fortunate as us Pacific Northwesterners when it comes to weather, topography, and cruising grounds.

10 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

Peter Marsh grew up in Greenwich, UK, started dinghy sailing in 1963, and witnessed the start of the Singlehanded Trans-Atlantic Race in 1964. He was involved in early trimaran development, then joined Major H.W. Tilman for a voyage to the Arctic in 1971. He came to the U.S. in 1972 and has only built one more multihull, a small open trimaran that he cruised to Alaska twice in the 1980s, plus a 1986 voyage on the Great Lakes. He described those voyages in his first stories for Northwest Yachting magazine. He has lived in Astoria since 2002. Read many of his stories at www.sea-to-summit.net

Captain Chris Couch is a successful Pacific Northwestbased delivery captain who has been widely used by companies like Ocean Alexander and Nordhavn for the last 26 years. Couch enjoyed a 14-year career in the U.S. Coast Guard that took him around the country from the East Coast, Gulf, and West Coast on all kinds of vessels. He has been at the helm through the Panama Canal five times and four transpacific crossings.

Launch of the F/V Blue North

(photos by Alex Kwanten)

The Northwest's Newest State-of-the-art Fishing Vessel You may have noticed the large, blue boat with balloons in Fisherman’s Terminal recently and wondered what the ruckus was about. The F/V Blue North, owned by Blue North Fisheries, is one of the newest additions to the commercial fishing fleet from the yards of the

Pacific Northwest, and we got a good look at her in Seattle before she went on her way to sea trials. Her christening is scheduled for the spring, after which she will hopefully live a long and profitable life in the North Pacific chasing down cod and whatever fills the hold.

The F/V Blue North is Blue North Fisheries’ first purpose-built bottom longline freezer/processor and the first in the United States to have molded hull construction.

The state-of-the-art, 191-foot, $35-plus-million freezer longliner has a ton of features that may be signs of the fishing boats of the future. Safety features include a climate-controlled indoor working space to gaff each fish that comes into an internal moon pool, which means crews will no longer have to brave the elements on an outdoor working deck. The moon pool is a fivefoot diameter opening in the hull that allows the crew to retrieve the gear from inside the vessel. An Optimar “Electro Stunner” even ensures humane harvesting of the catch, which also has the added benefit of gentle handling and less bruising of the fish. Thanks to the greater technological advancements in processing aboard the F/V Blue North, less fish waste will be produced. Cod skin, fish stomachs and livers, fish roe, and swim bladders are considered delicacies for cultures abroad, and bringing those products to market instead of throwing them overboard as waste will add a lot to the company’s bottom line (while being less wasteful). The F/V Blue North is Blue North Fisheries’ first purpose-built bottom longline freezer/processor and the first Continued on Page 14

in the United States to have molded hull construction. The soft chines and molded hull are unusual for the West Coast fleet, and some of the steel’s compound curves allegedly exceeded the capacity of the shipyard to produce in-house. The F/V Blue North was designed by the Norway-based naval architecture firm Shipsteknisk AS, and is the company’s third deep sea longliner. What’s more, the F/V Blue North is powered by an unconventional diesel-electric propulsion (DEP) system. While traditional diesel engines directly power the drives mechanically, the Siemen’s BLUEDRIVE system utilizes twin Caterpillar C32 engines and one Cat C18 driving diesel generator to generate power for the vessel’s electric motors. This technology is much more energy efficient than the traditional diesel setup, and a similar concept is even used on the U.S. Navy’s new Zumwalt class vessels. The Seattle-based commercial fishing company Blue North Fisheries was established in 1983 and now harvests more than 20,000 metric tons of fish and fish products annually. Blue North currently operates five freezer longliners in the Bering Sea and the Gulf of Alaska, and one smaller seiner in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon. We at Northwest Yachting salute the F/V Blue North and wish them successful sea trials in the months to come. Give those boats up north a thought the next time you order fish n’ chips.

Marine Reserves

The President Moves to Protect the Seas The expansion of the hard-to-pronounce Papahānaumokuākea (“Pa-pa-hah-nowmo-koo-ah-keh-ah”) Marine National Monument of Hawaii and the establishment of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument off the coast of Cape Cod by President Obama was all over the recent news. Fishing, drilling, and mining are now prohibited in these areas in an effort to preserve the oceans from excessive exploitation. These are two big developments for everyone, especially boaters, and may be hints of what’s to come, both globally and to the Pacific Northwest. Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument of Hawaii was established in 2006 by President George W. Bush and was already the largest marine protected area on Earth at 140,000 square miles. President Obama more than quadrupled the monument’s size to 582,578 square miles, an area that is larger than all the other national parks combined and twice the size of Texas. An important element to the move is the complete prohibition of commercial fishing in the area, which will affect the operations of tuna longliners who traditionally operated in those waters. The waters are home to many endangered species including blue whales, short-tailed albatrosses, sea turtles, and the last Hawaiian monk seals. Unidentified species as well as over 7,000 species of corals,

including 4,000-year-old black coral, also thrive in the monument. Around a quarter of the species found in the reserve are found nowhere else, and the corals, some of the most northern, are some of the most likely to survive climate change. The monument represents a whopping 98% of the world’s “no-take” protected ocean, and to call it a game changer may be an understatement. The Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument off the coast of Cape Cod is historic as well. It may be a mere 5,000 square miles, about the size of Connecticut yet small compared to Papahānaumokuākea, but it is the first national marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean. This vibrant area of the Atlantic is interesting geologically because it is where the Atlantic Ocean meets the continental shelf. Dramatic canyons deeper than the

Act was originally instituted with the focus to preserve southwestern prehistoric sites, such as burial mounds and cliff-dwellings, from the mining industry, President Roosevelt left office with 18 national monuments under the protection of his pen. These sites include Washington’s own Mount Olympus. For a global perspective, National Geographic has an excellent interactive graphic to compare

nations and their respective number of marine protected areas and percentage of territorial seas protected (ocean.nationalgeographic. com/ocean/take-action/marineprotected-areas/). The U.S. is faring favorably with 29.39% of seas protected and 750 protected areas. Marine reserves are a growing phenomenon as the conservation efforts of the world are starting to treat the

oceans with the same deference that they have treated the land. Will we see more protected areas springing up in our neck of the woods? Where do you think they should be? How will they affect industry? Send us your thoughts and get writing to your representatives. The U.S. park system as been called “America’s best idea.” Perhaps the seas are the new frontier.

According to Statistical Surveys Inc., a leading provider of market data for marine industries, the number of boat sales nationwide surged in August, 2016. The main powerboat segments rose 12.5% to 10,292 boat sales for the year while the industry-wide increase was 11.8% to 17,411 boat sales for the year in 25 states that represent about 62% of the U.S. market. Aluminum fishing boats rose by a sharp 19.5% for the month and led the way for the upward charge. These boat sales were largely in Florida, Texas, California, and

South Carolina. Washington made it onto the top ten list of boat-selling states as well. The double-digit growth is a great sign for the recovering marine industry and yacht brokers should pop the champagne. The strong August showing pushes number of sales gains for the year to 5.2% in the main segments and 4.9% industrywide. Intuition suggests that sales will likely slow again across much of the country due to the arrival of fall and winter, but we’ll let the numbers do the talking. For now, it’s great to see growth.

The seven-strong Polar Ocean Challenge team, led by British explorer David Hempleman-Adams, departed Bristol on June 19, 2016 for the four-month expedition. The team sailed 24 hours a day and worked in pairs to tackle two, four-hour watches every day. The Northwest Passage was conquered in an astonishing fourteen days, as it was almost completely ice-free, a stark reminder of the dramatic effects of climate change. The team completed the adventure on the 48-foot, aluminum, purposebuilt yacht Northabout. The harrowing route covered about 13,500 nautical miles over freezing Arctic Circle waters. Hempleman-Adams is spearheading his own initiative to inform young people about climate change and inspire them to take action about it. More information about Edwards, the Polar Ocean Challenge adventure, and the group’s charity efforts are available on their blog at act4addenbrookes.org. uk.

Digging the Clams There’s some mixed news for the avid (rabid?) razor clam harvesters among us. The season is nigh, but digs at Long Beach, Washington are delayed due to domoic acid levels. At the time of this writing, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) tentatively scheduled razor clam digs to begin in midOctober and extend through December on three other ocean beaches. Speculation abounds as to how the season will stack up, but WDFW has hinted that the total razor clam population on Washington’s ocean beaches has increased slightly over the last year. The first proposed razor clam dig is on Friday, October 14, 2016 at Twin Harbors, Copalis, and Mocrocks. Low tide is .2 feet at 1755 hours. WDFW continues to monitor toxin levels on all ocean beaches. The start of last season was delayed due to elevated levels of

Time will tell if domoic acid levels will continue to affect the 2016 razor clam seaon.

domoic acid, a natural toxin from certain algae species, as well. The recent testing casts uncertainty on the fall razor clam season. Toxin testing is performed within ten days of a planned razor clam dig. WDFW typically announces whether a dig will go forward about a week before the opening. For the uninitiated, the razor clam (Siliqua patula) is a species of native, and delicious, bivalve mollusk that inhabits the Pacific West Coast from California to Alaska. You'd have to talk to a pro to get all the best hunting advice, but harvesters typically look for a "show" (a hole or depression in the sand) to know where to dig.

Catch the Action

Bellingham’s inaugural SeaFeast 2016 is fast approaching, so you better bring your boat shoes and appetite. SeaFeast is essentially two days of everything maritime, and activities abound from learning to fillet a fish, net mending, singing sea shanties, to much more. Local fishing lore will be told by fishermen poets, and you can taste fresh grilled salmon while watching a helicopter rescue demo in the bay. “Fishing is fundamental to Pacific Northwest culture,” said Penny Dalton, the director of Washington Sea Grant and a Gold Sponsor for the event, in a press release.

“And it’s still vital to our economy. But many people living here have not had a chance to experience this lively and entertaining fishing tradition firsthand, and we are pleased to celebrate it through a two-day event.” Friday, September 30, 2016 warms up with writing workshops and ends with sea shanties. Saturday, October 1, 2016 is jam-packed and opens with the official Welcome Cermony and ends with The Feast of the Sea, which features seven tables of

seafood, a sea-to-plate film premiere, and more among the many art and food booths that are slated to make an appearance. The complete line-up of events is pretty impressive and can be viewed online at bellinghamseafeast.com. The fun starts on Friday, September 30, 2016 at 0900 hours and goes into the evening, and continues through Saturday, October 1. It looks like a good time, check it out!

Everett Waterfront Makeover The Port Commission of Everett awarded a $7.6-million contract to Burlington-based Interwest Construction to construct the roads, utilities, and public access features of the new Fisherman’s Harbor District at Waterfront Place in Everett, Washington. Fisherman’s Harbor is a 12-acre project on Everett’s waterfront located adjacent to West Marine View Drive. The harbor is the first phase of the city’s plan for a 65-acre mixeduse development area. The idea is to create a new, water-friendly

Double Take

She did WHAT?!? The West Seattle Blog reports that Erika Norris, 31, successfully swam from Bremerton Point to Alki Point in September. The 10.4mile swim, known as the “Amy Hiland Swim,” is named after the woman who last completed the epic swim in 1959. Norris completed the swim in four hours and ten minutes. Norris was certainly a good bet to complete the task. She was a six-time NCAA All-American swimmer at New York University, which last year named her into the school’s hall of fame. She tackled the course with two escort boats, one of which carried the co-founder and president of the Northwest Open Water Swimming Association, Andrew Malinak. Malinak, 29, helped map out Norris’ swim to take advantage of currents and keep her clear of marine traffic. The duo are attempting to popularize open marathon swimming in the Northwest, a movement that peaked in the late 1950s and has since died down. Hats off to Norris and team for going for it. Time will tell if open water marathon swimming in the Northwest catches on or not. For now, most of us watch and are inspired.

community for people to visit, live, work, and play. The contract includes building the new Seiner Drive and 14th Street roadways, the Esplanade trail system in Fisherman’s Harbor, and the Pacific Rim Plaza. Interwest Construction will also provide landscaping for all the public spaces and install a new pipeline in the City of Everett’s Puget Sound storm water infrastructure.

In August, 2016, the Port Commission of Everett awarded a $4.4-million contract to Bergerson Construction for the marine aspect of the Fisherman’s Harbor project. The work, which begins October 3, 2016, includes the removal and reconstruction of the southern bulkhead in Fisherman’s Harbor, construction of a new overwater timber wharf to moor commercial

fishing vessels, the platform for the new Pacific Rim Splash Fountain Plaza, and an access pier that will eventually connect a new guest moorage facility to the base of the harbor.

When you see Camdeboo, you know she’s built to go far and wide. She is a proven blue water machine. With her

Camdeboo 1990 Lavranos 50 smooth, round bilges, you can’t tell at first glance that she is built of steel, though her stainless capped toe rail gives it away. There is so much to like about this boat. She has a long seagoing cockpit. Her interior is finished $194,500

in beautiful teak with a mahogany cabin sole. With three enclosed cabins, she easily sleeps eight people. Headroom is 6 feet, 9 inches in the salon! She has one of the nicest galleys you will find. There is massive storage and plenty of tankage. Camdeboo was purchased by her current owners in San Diego. After a refit in Victoria, British Columbia, they set sail with two families (seven people total) to live their dream of sailing the South Pacific. According to her owners, “Camdeboo is an ideal boat for family and multi-family offshore cruising; she is especially well set up for trade wind sailing. We found her to be safe, seaworthy and comfortable; and she was fast – we had a number of 200 nm days.” Angelo Lavranos is well known for designing capable boats with exquisite lines. Camdeboo fits this description well. Priced appropriately, Camdeboo is well worth a look. – brad baker, swiftsure yachts

Double Take

American Win U.S. Paralympians Rick Doerr, Brad Kendell, and Hugh Freund have won silver in the Sonar class, the three-person Paralympic keelboat division, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The race was the last in the series, and the trio clearly went all out. Their silver medal was the best finish by any American sailor (or sailing team) at either the 2016 Rio Olympics or the 2016 Rio Paralympics. “Rick, Brad, and Hugh sailed a great series and earned their silver medal today by racing smart and fast in the final race, on a difficult course and under pressure,” said Managing Direc-

tor of U.S. Olympic Sailing Josh Adams in a press release. Doerr (56) is a surgeon in his professional life and sustained an injury from a car accident in 1992 that left him wheelchair-bound. Kendell (35) hails from a family of professional sailors, but a plane crash in 2003 claimed the lives of his father and a friend. The crash also resulted in the amputation of his legs above the knees. Freund (28) lost his right foot to an aggressive form of bone cancer. The talented trio also won the 2016 Sonar Worlds earlier this year. All three of them, and the country they represent, should be proud.

Hanjin Dead In the Water The ubiquitous Hanjin Shipping, the largest cargo shipping firm in South Korea, has filed for bankruptcy protection. The move is a dire one for the firm, which received a $90 million bailout from its parent company. Not only will the need to shift to other cargo shippers likely affect some US-based retailers, but concerns that the company may

not be able to pay docking fees has left 85 of Hanjin’s cargo ships floating in international waters. These ships are unable to unload their cargo and some are allegedly even running out of food. Each ship produces a massive operating bill every day, and answers are scarce as to who is going to pay them. The clock is ticking for this orphaned fleet of “ghost” cargo ships.

Terry Kohler, owner of the world-renown North Sails from 1984-2014, has passed away, leaving behind a legacy that the sailing community will not soon forget. He was a fixture in the wider sailing sphere as a generous supporter of the sport. Terry promoted women’s sailing and worked with the U.S. Women’s Olympic Team in 2012. He also was critical to the creation of the Sail Sheboygan Sailing Center and the non-profit Sailing Education Associate of Sheboygan (SEAS). Terry bought North Sails from Lowell North upon North’s retirement in 1984. Terry, a graduate from MIT, saw the potential in embracing technology in the sailmaking industry and was passionate about keeping North Sails an international leader in sailmaking. It was under his guidance that North Sails introduced 3D sailmaking and the technologically advanced manufacturing and logistics systems that have helped set the company apart. In 2008, Terry bought North Sails and Southern Spars under North Technology Group (NTG). NTG has since grown into a diverse family of companies serving marine and manufacturing markets worldwide. Terry is remembered as a visionary community and business leader. He is survived by his wife Mary and family.

Roche Harbor Derby

Are you single and love boating? Then you best pay attention. The Seattle Singles Yacht Club (SSYC), an active organization of single adults who love boating, has moved their weekly Monday meetings to the Swedish Club (1920 Dexter Ave. N., Seattle). The idea is pretty simple. As a member of SSYC, you can get out on the water without owning a boat while meeting other

The 2017 Roche Harbor Salmon Classic is accepting entries, and, if you’re interested, you best sign up! This will be the 14th annual iteration of the successful fishing derby that is slated for January 19, 20, and 21, 2017. That may sound far away, but the event was sold out well before Thanksgiving last year. Victory favors the prepared, as they say. The entry fee is $750 and includes a swath of goodies. Cash prizes totaling $25,000 are up for grabs, and Roche Harbor will even throw in an additional $30,000 for the first-place fish if it weighs in at 30 pounds or more. Three nights of hosted dinners, like prime rib night, are included. Raffles and donated prizes from Pacific Northwest favorites like Fabill, Scotty, Shimano, Laminglass, Simrad, and Berkley will be there aplenty. On-site lodging is available, but it is extra. What are you waiting for?

We misdirected our readers to Denison Yacht Sales in our Trident 620 article in the August, 2016 issue (pg. 39). Irwin Yacht Sales is the correct Outer Reef broker, learn more at irwinyachtsales.com. We also misdirected Pacific Northwest readers in our Back Cove 30 article (pg. 41 of the same issue) to Stan Miller Yachts instead of the local brokerage Bellingham Yachts. We are sorry for the confusion and the proper changes have been made in the digital edition. The Thunderbirds are Go! feature in the September edition erroneously cites Neal Booth’s business as “Anchor Marine Insurance” (pg. 80). His real business is Boat Insurance Agency, and you can learn more and even get a quote at boatinsurance.net. Additionally, his name is spelled “Neal” not “Neil”. We extend our apologies for these mistakes. They are fixed on the digital edition. Finally, the construction of the minesweeper that would become Jacques Cousteau’s R/V Calypso was falsely attributed to Lake Union Dry Dock in the 100 Years on Lake Union feature. R/V Calypso was actually built by the Ballard Marine Railway Company. We apologize for the error and fixed it on the digital edition.

Classic Boatyard on the Move Attention boaters, a shipyard is coming back to life! Classic Marine Ltd. is leasing the historic Cowichan Bay Shipyard and moving from the current location at the Marine Supply and Nautical Gift Store in Cowichan Bay, B.C. The historic Cowichan Bay Shipyard came into existence around 100 years ago and has since been purchased by world-renown artist Arthur Vickers for his art galley and workspace. Classic Marine Ltd’s move to the shipyard will bring the

property back to its maritime working roots as one of the few surviving historic shipyards on the coast of Vancouver, B.C. Owners of Classic Marine Ltd., Rick and Debra Carpentier, are excited for the move to come. Classic Marine Ltd. has been a fixture in Cowichan Bay for many years, and this business expansion will benefit boaters of all kinds. The shipyard will not only accommodate the Marine Supply Chandlery, but will now be able to offer haul-out servic-

es, an onsite canvas and upholstery shop (Classic Canvas), boat detailing, repair, and installations. Classic Marine Ltd. also has a unique nautical gift shop offering brass giftware, Cowichan Bay clothing, and other nautically themed gifts, some from local First Nations craftsmen. It does the salty heart good to see an old shipyard come alive. “Move day” is officially November 1, 2016, but bookings for services are already in effect. More information is available at classicmarine.ca. You can

Cocktail of the Month

Old Mischievous Ways This month’s cocktail was created by Paul Ritums, owner of The Westy bar in West Seattle, and brought to our attention by Patti Bishop of Fremont Mischief Distillery. This cocktail has been a long time favorite at Fremont Mischief, and if those whiskey pros like it, you know it’s good. The purist recipe demands some limited edition Storm Tossed Rye Whiskey aged upon Deadliest Catch boats the F/V Northwestern and the F/V Cornelia Marie. We threw in Paul’s spiced simple syrup recipe for good measure.

Old Mischievous Ways

Spiced Simple Syrup

• 2 oz Storm Tossed Rye Whiskey (Captain Sig’s is recommended for this one) • 1 1/2 oz. Spiced Simple Syrup • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters • Long strip of orange peel as garnish

• 1 1/2 cups fine sugar • 1/2 cup light brown sugar • 2 cups water • 1 tablespoon chopped, dried orange peel

In a mixing glass, combine all liquid ingredients. Add ice and let sit until well-chilled. Strain into an ice-filled Old-Fashioned glass. Take wide strip of orange peel and express oils over glass and run peel around rim. Place the peel in finished cocktails.

• 6 whole cloves • 1 cinnamon stick • 2-3 whole star anise

Combine all ingredients in a pot and bring to a boil stirring until sugar is dissolved. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool. Filter out solids using a fine mesh strainer. Bottle and keep refrigerated. We’re thirsty for more drink recipes, so send your favorites with high-resolution pictures to norris@nwyachting.com for a chance to appear in the next issue.

Join our turn-key charter program and you’ll get: + Year-round yacht maintenance by expert techs + Sales tax exemption + Prime moorage at the gateway to the San Juans + 60% of your vessel’s charter income

Brave New World

Letting go of Tech

Dear NW, I'm an avid boater and long time reader of NW Yachting. I've been meaning to write to you for a couple of months, since the first updated format issue came out, but you know, summer and all intruded! I'm writing to pay you and your team a big compliment. The revamp of NWY is truly fantastic! I've been boating since my teens (53 now) and have attended multiple boat shows on the East and West Coast every year since I was 13. I read a VERY wide selection of boating magazines. Soundings (East Coast holdover!), Sea, Passage Maker, Yachting, etc. We own two boats: a 2011 Commander 30 flybridge sedan (370-horsepower diesel) and a 2013 Grady White 180 center console with a 150-horsepower Yamaha. The changes in layout, look, and especially content that have come out in the past few months are fantastic. The breadth, depth, variety, and quality of writing in the articles meets or exceeds anything else out there, including Soundings, my long time favorite, and Passage Maker. The look is fresh and fun, lots of varied content on products, events, boats, etc. But the stories really shine. Very, very interesting content across a wide swath of topics. I can really see the impact you've had since taking the helm. Thanks again for a greatly improved magazine. It's now the FIRST magazine I read each month. -Barry Rutten, Kirkland, WA

Hopefully you got a lot of feedback about your drone article. Are people simply incapable of ever leaving their technology behind? Are people so in need of attention that they need to impress their friends with their "cool" photos? Should everyone else have to have their peace and quiet disturbed while these people play with their toys? It's about time people learn to take a timeout from their gadgets and just sit back and chill out. -Local Reader

Thank you for the kind words! We’re glad you like what we’re doing and stay tuned. The best is yet to come. —Ed.

Yes, we completely agree that unplugging from land is one of the true joys of boating. But a boating experience is what the skipper wants it to be, and if he or she is a drone-fan, then more power to them (as long as they aren’t pestering folks like yourself, of course). Thank you for your feedback! —Ed.

Cut 'em Some Slack In the June 2016 issue of Northwest Yachting on page 24, you take Orcaman to task about his gas consumption… …Cut Orcaman some slack, and the rest of his human compatriots as well, and let's live.

fair point to raise in an interview with a self-proclaimed environmental super hero. At the end of the day, Orcaman does what Orcaman wants, and that’s what makes him, him. We wish him safe travels in his future adventures. —Ed.

In with the New

As a long time reader of NW Yachting, I’m writing to congratulate and thank you for creating a revised, updated, exciting, and reborn NW Yachting. The redesign is fresh and crisp. But you went much further than a massive redesign alone. You rebirthed this venerable publication! The May issue had so much substantive content that I picked it up several times during the month. Articles and advertising for new boats and marine gear are an essential part of keeping any boating oriented publication afloat. You’ve added meaty articles on destinations, maritime history, and electronics, all written with high entertainment and information value. -R.S., Olympia, WA Thank you, we'll do our best to keep it up! —Ed.

Selene 50 Europa The pros at Selene Yachts Northwest are excited to announce that they have received a Selene 50 Europa for their inventory, and we understand their enthusiasm. This handsome yacht is the latest design from renowned boat designer Howard Chen and has a plethora of features that should make for a reliable and fun cruiser. The unique three stateroom layout features an off-center master berth forward that allows for walk-around access. The salon has tasteful wood finishing and big windows to let in the light. Of course, the galley is fully decked out with a full size Norcold refrigerator and Force 10 gas stove and oven. It’s easy to imagine a get-together on the wrap-around seating at the table, and granite countertops abound. Luxuries like washing and drying machines and granite countertops in the galley

and heads may trick you into believing you’ve wandered into a very nice house. Diamond Sea Glaze Dutch doors open up to starboard and to the cockpit. The flybridge beckons on a nice day, and the skipper will be protected by the hardtop bimini. The bow features very generous flat deck space for the loungers among us. Did we mention the gorgeous teak woodwork on the decks? Well, the teak is included. A covered deck and swim platform are positioned at the stern for entertaining or getting out on the water on smaller craft. The electric windlass gets the anchor in and out without any problems. Cockpit stairs lead back up to the flybridge. She is powered by a 330 horsepower QSL9 Cummins inboard diesel engine that pushes her along at a cruising speed of seven knots. She can reach up to ten knots when pushed. The 50 Europa is

equipped with 13-horsepower bow and stern thrusters to help with those tight spaces in the marina. The turn-key package includes a Garmin electronics package complete with chartplotter, autopilot, radar, echosounder, and more. An Apex A-10 Eurosport tender with 9.8 Tohatsu outboard and fixed stainless steel dinghy chocks will help make the expeditions in your dreams into a reality. The Webasto hydronic heating system should keep you and yours nice and comfortable during those fall cruises. The 50 Europa is a cruiser in every sense of the word, and this Pacific Northwest newcomer should make somebody very happy. Maybe it could be you? The Selene 50 Europa is yours exclusively from Selene Yachts Northwest for $1,175,000. You can learn more at selenenw.com.

New & Notable Boats

Helmsman Trawlers 43 Pilothouse The Helmsman Trawlers 43 Pilothouse is the expanded version of the popular 38 Pilothouse, and looks like a good option for a Pacific Northwest cruiser that means business. A primary improvement is the addition of a second stateroom, which allows for more guests and stowage. The master stateroom forward features a raised queen bed fit for royalty. The interior is simply gorgeous with teak and holly cabin soles, and accommodations are spacious. She’s got brawn too with a solid fiberreinforced plastic (FRP) laminate hull with vinylester resins, stainless steel frames for the aft cabin door, and sliding aluminum pilothouse doors. Of course, the low-rise pilothouse for which the 43 Pilothouse gets her name is where the skipper will

be doing most of the work, while the open flybridge above will be frequented often on nice days. This yacht has essentially taken the popular Helmsman 38 and made a roomier, more accommodating big sister. The 43

has many of the same classic good looks and charm, but she is simply larger. The Helmsman Trawlers 43 Pilothouse is yours from the good folks at Waterline Boats for$479,000. You can learn more at waterlineboats.com.

Beneteau Oceanis 41.1 Beneteau strikes again with its new Oceanis 41.1, a midsized sailing yacht with an emphasis on easy handling, comfortable accommodations, and custom options. The self-tacking jib and German mainsheet-trimming system are standard to make life easy on the crew, and the Finot Conq-designed chined hull should make for a fun ride for the guests. Beneteau is known for having spacious accommodations, and the Oceanis 41.1 is no exception. The cockpit is huge for a yacht this size and the transom folds out a swim platform. The many large windows and portholes make for a friendly, light-filled interior that has many custom options in terms of cabin layout, wood and fabric finishing, and

Dragonfly 25 Few boats can turn heads quite like a performance trimaran zipping past, and the Dragonfly 25 has got what it takes. This sporty boat hails from Denmark and features many speed and practicalityoriented qualities that landed it SAIL magazine’s “Best Smaller Cruiser for 2015” and a nomination for European Yacht of the Year for 2016. One very notable quality is the easy of stowage and transport. The hulls are foldable, meaning easy trips on the trailer or berthing in the slip. This feisty boat is easy to beach as well, and with weekend-style accommodations for up to four people, she makes a tempting island hopper. She can reportedly reach

speeds in excess of 20 knots, so be ready for an adrenaline rush. All this and she pairs with any six-horsepower outboard. How’s that for low maintenance? The Dragonfly 25, and other designs

of the Dragonfly line, are available from Shearwater Yacht Sales Anacortes. Contact them for pricing at 425998-8731 or visit their website at shearwateryachtsales.com.

Tiara 39 Coupe The Tiara 39 Coupe is a new addition to the popular and sporty Tiara Coupe series that emphasizes luxury and performance. The modern style blends the interior with the exterior as much as possible with large windows to let in the light as well as a retractable sunroof over the salon. The aft deck features walk-around seating with a table and a swim platform for easy water toy deployment. The deck space forward is also generous for a boat this size, and lounging is a must. The interior houses an open, modern salon that leads into a

generous v-berth master stateroom with en suite head. There are total sleep accommodations for four. The contemporary galley has just about all one could want in terms of cooking appliances and space. But this beauty packs a punch, too. Engine options abound, and one can opt for twin Volvo or twin Cummins engines. Optional joystick controls give the helm a racecar feeling and will come in handy in tight spaces. Garmin navigation packages should keep the skipper in the know with regards to location. She’s ready to

handle a multiday trip to the San Juans if you are. Overall, the Tiara 39 looks like a lot of fun packed into a luxurious package. You can

Rocket Man JetSurf Motorized Surfboards // $12,500+ Do you feel the need for speed? We noticed the JetSurf booth at the Seattle Boats Afloat Show, and we had to dig a little deeper. If you’re the type who loves wakeboarding but is sick of the umbilical cord to the towboat, one of these boards may just set you free. JetSurf boards are carbon fiber boards that could be mistaken for traditional wakeboards from a distance, but these have an engine included. The operator controls the craft with a small handheld device that doubles as a sort of reign to the nose of the board for control as one flies over the water.

How fast? Well, that is up to the model of your choosing. The Ultra Sport model is geared for those who are new to the sport (like most of us) and have a top speed of about 26 knots. The faster Racing Titanium design tops out at around 32 knots. The boards have a maximum load of 220 pounds to accommodate most adults. The company even touts its products’ fuel economies and their practice of planting two trees per board as ways in which JetSurf negates their carbon imprint.

Plug-in Weather Station WeatherFlow smartphone weather meter // $79.99 This Bluetooth-compatible miniature device, used with your smartphone, allows you to collect real-time wind, temperature, humidity, dew point, heat index, wind chill, and pressure readings. The readings are displayed on your smartphone using the free iOS or Android application. The data can be shared with others or stored for later use. The great minds at the Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Florida calibrated the wind speed measurement. The WeatherFlow can be handheld, or

you can attach it to any one-quarterinch 20 standard camera mount. One CR2450 battery is included, which will keep it running for 500 hours on low power, or 300 hours on high. The wireless connection is effective up to 100-feet away. It can be used with an iPhone 4S or newer, iPad Generation 3 or newer, operates on iOS 6.0 or newer, plus it works with Bluetooth Smart Ready Android phones and tablets with OS 4.3 or newer. Available from West Marine for just $79.99. —L.B.

Could these kinds of boards become a typical sight on the water in the near future? Time will tell. For now, the company is headquartered in the Czech Republic and the boards have yet to make a major jet-powered dealership presence onto the West Coast. More information and a dealer map is available at jetsurf.com. Starting price for the Ultra Sport board, which is recommended for beginners, is $12,500. —N.C.

Cold Night Cover Short Takes Object/Interface Boat Blanket // $185.00

Puff Planner TackingMaster // $75.00 This “wristwatch” is really a tactical navigation device that collaborates with your compass to make it easier to understand and anticipate wind changes and trends during regatta sailing. You will be better prepared for the next puff because the TackingMaster helps you know when to tack or jibe. First, you reset the wind dial to 0 percent wind shift. Next you untighten the lock ring and adjust it to the preferred tension followed by setting the wind direction on the compass ring. Set the windward mark bearing on the mark ring, tighten the lock ring, and you’re ready to tack. It comes with a Velcro wrist strap and a belt pouch. The device is made in Denmark and is available at tackingmaster.com for $75. —L.B.

Fall is in the air, and it gets chilly with the wind in your hair as you watch the sun dip into the water. You can make summer boating last in comfort with the stylish Boat Blanket, a generous 58-inch by 58-inch blanket with a wool side for warmth and a water-resistant nylon side to keep you dry. Constructed of wool, nylon, Thinsulate, and military-grade elastic, the Boat Blanket could also be used for picnicking or cheering on your favorite team when on land. The Boat Blanket is available in red, blue, or camouflage with charcoal gray on the wool side. Made in Canada, the Boat Blanket rolls up and stays in place with an included elastic band, doubling as an attractive cushion. Dry cleaning is recommended, or wash in cold water and hang to dry. The Boat Blanket is listed from $185 on objectinterface.ca. —L.B.

No-fuss potable water system PureWater by Forespar // $189.95 This ingenious potable water system for your boat made its debut last month at the Newport International Boat Show. Forespar, a leader in hardware and plumbing systems for boats, decided it was time to develop a space-saving and convenient water system. The PureWater system comes with a sleek solid brass chrome faucet – the only part of the system that is visible on the counter.

What makes this system unique is that, once installed, the filters are changed above the counter with no countertop clutter taking up valuable space. The carbon filters are good for up to 350 gallons or three months. To replace the filter, all that’s required is a quarter turn twist of the faucet, then the old filter slips out, and the system is ready for the replacement.

The PureWater system is compact and easy to install. The system comes with all the necessary parts, and a 5-micron standard carbon-block filter, without the need for mounting brackets. An optional 0.5 micron filter is available for extra purification. Save space, and feel safe knowing you are drinking clean water. The kit is available at forespar.com for $189.95. The enhanced 0.5 filter is

You can avoid damaging your canvas boat cover by using this handy tool with dual stainless steel blades. This tool aligns and fastens snaps both inside and outside your boat.

No worry if your canvas has shrunk from the elements, as it will work on corroded snaps and shrunken canvas. It works great on truck covers, too!

Candid Camera Sioeye Iris4G

Light the Night Imtra Colorlight CLite2 Many of us Pacific Northwest boaters have been in less than desirable conditions before, and the incoming winter is sure to deliver classic foul weather. The night conceals crab pots and deadheads from one’s high-power binoculars, while fog and rain can obscure infrared cameras due to attenuation issues. What’s more, emergency overboard situations in the North Pacific’s cold water require quick action to save property and lives, and driving blind is hopeless. Sometimes one just needs a big whopping floodlight to cut through the murk. Imtra’s new Colorlight CLite2 is a highoutput LED searchlight that may just do the job. This alien, spaceshiplooking searchlight LED array is designed for yachts 45 to 125 feet LOA, and the manufacturer claims an impressive range of 4,921 feet, or .81 of a nautical mile. The unit’s LED lights are housed within a powder-coated aluminum structure affixed upon an acid-proof, stainless steel base. With all that protection, it’s no wonder that the CLite2 is supposed to operate for up to ten years without scheduled maintenance. What’s extra cool about the Colorlight CLite2 is the unlimited rotation ability on both the x-

50 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

and y-axes. The manufacturer also claims to have eliminated the “hard stop” phenomena that can make operation difficult for a skipper rotating a searchlight rapidly. Why have LED lights taken over the industry? LED, or Light Emitting Diode, bulbs operate by running an arc of electrical current between two electrodes vs. the traditional halogen or incandescent bulbs that use electricity to heat a metal filament. The LED method of generating light generally gives off as much as 80% of its energy as light instead of heat, while 10% of energy as light is normal for traditional halogen bulbs. If one wants to up the tech even more, the CLite2 can be integrated with a FLIR thermalimaging camera to evolve the unit into a vessel’s super eye. The CLite2 can integrate with just about every nav station out there for easy control from the helm. If you’re on the market for a high-end searchlight, the CLite2 may just do the trick. The unit will be on display at the Pacific Marine Expo (November 17-19) in Seattle for the curious. Prices vary, but the 24V model retails for around $12,000. More available at imtra.com.

There are plenty of small, cheap, very good point-of-view cameras out on the market these days that are inspired by the GoPro craze, but many of them are rather similar. Maybe one has digital zoom, the other is slightly lighter, etc. Is somebody trying something different? Enter the Sioeye Iris4G, a mountable POV camera with cellular connectivity to the 4G network. That’s right, you can livestream your boating adventure right to your Facebook page or Twitter feed. Caught that big king? Now your buddies can get jealous instantly.

Simrad StructureScan 3D If one stares at the screen of an echosounder display for too long, one might get the idea that the ocean is a two-dimensional floor. It can be easy to forget that the world’s biggest mountains and deepest canyons are concealed under the brine. Simrad’s StructureScan 3D imaging unit helps to turn twodimensional sonar imagery into three-dimensional imagery on your Simrad multi-function display (MFD) to bring the ocean floor to life. StructureScan 3D scans the underwater terrain to create a high-resolution, three-dimensional view of what is beneath your vessel. The black-box sonar unit works in concert with Simrad NSS evo2 and NSO evo2 MFDs, as well as an included StructureScan 3D Skimmer transducer. The max range for sidescan imaging is 600 feet, and the max speed for tracking the bottom is 35 knots. Whether you’re looking for fish hideouts or just love gazing at the rise and fall of the ocean floor beneath you, StructureScan 3D may be for you. Pricing varies with setup and dealer, check out simrad-yachting.com for more details.

Tony’s Tackle Box By Tony Floor

Salmon Season Redemption There’s an old saying among Pacific Northwest salmon anglers that goes like this: People who don’t get skunked, don’t fish. It’s the nature of the sport. Just because you put your worm in the water does not necessarily mean you’re going to get a bite, especially by a primo summertime mature Chinook or coho salmon. Now that October is here, it makes some sense to look back at the thumbs up or thumbs down of our recent summer salmon fishing season. The process goes back to at least March when the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) released its 2016 Chinook and coho salmon forecasts on a river by river basis. As you may recall, there were plenty of chuckholes for both species, especially coho salmon, as many of us attempted to lay out a battle plan for summer fishing trips. First and foremost, the entire fishing season was at risk last spring due to a lack of agreement on the Chinook and coho harvest package between the state, tribes, and Feds (NOAA Fisheries). Finally, as the result of significant pushing and shoving in the political arena between the three groups, a sport fishing package was realized, thanks to the new WDFW Director Jim Unsworth. If it was up to NOAA Fisheries, we would all be golfing and bowling this past summer. Make you feel good about paying your federal income tax? Their support of Washington’s sport fishing industry was like looking for jackrabbits on Pluto. Get my drift? Once fisheries began to open, slowly but surely during July and into August, I observed more disappointment

the passage of Chinook salmon over Bonneville Dam began in 1938. Anglers from all over the West licked their chops, only to be dealt chicken bones without the meat. The last stats I studied in mid/late August suggested one Chinook for every 10 anglers. And if that stat didn’t induce choking, try one coho salmon for every 20 anglers. Once again, bowling is an option. So, what happened? Fundamentally, I refuse to stomp on the reputations of biologists who predict salmon survival rates. It is a very tough job working with inexact science. They consider all of the data in this challenging task and make an educated and scientific assumption of marine and freshwater survival. Clearly, the impact of the 2015-16 El Niño, along with the warm water “blob” parked in Pacific Northwest waters, created more havoc for juvenile Chinook and coho salmon attempting to survive these Pacific Ocean phenomena than scientists predicted. If you believed the biologists’ assessment earlier this year, we knew that coho would be coming home like survivors of the Civil War. But many of us did not foresee the same kind of results for Chinook salmon. So where to now, Kemosabe? From this angler’s corner, I’m regrouping and anticipating fall fishing opportunities, which include a late run of kings, hopefully, on the west side of San Juan Island and the Hood Canal, which has a four-fish limit (two can be Chinook). Or, think about a few days down at Tillamook throughout October as this region has a very late run of kings which I have been harassing the last week of September. This king salmon fishery is just getting started. Grays Harbor is another good opportunity in October. Check the rules carefully as the area has been divided into two regions recently with different regulations. Keep the faith, all you homie salmon fishing junkies. There are still plenty of options to get your worm in the water after a tough summer. I’m off for Grays Harbor and more Tillamook king salmon fishing in October as my smoker is belching the sweetness of apple wood chips doing its magic on fresh salmon. ‘Tis the season. See you on the water.

October mint-bright king salmon are always on the menu in Tillamook Bay, as demonstrated by George Harris with this nice 22-pounder. than chest pumping. Sure, there were short-lived flashes of quality sport salmon fishing in all marine waters, but in the bigger picture, the summer of 2016 was disappointing, particularly for Chinook. The granddaddy of our summer salmon fishing has become the great fishery at the mouth of the Columbia, as I have shared in this space for years. Washington and Oregon salmon managers heralded a Chinook salmon run of over 900,000 this year, the fourth largest run size since counting

On Watch By Peter Schrappen

Whole, 2%, Skim: It doesn’t matter. Legislators like it all. I would forgive you if you do not know the name James Unruh. He was the former California state treasurer who coined the expression that “money is the mother’s milk of politics.” The thinking is that money in politics provides the nourishment candidates need. That begs the question: Can you tell me more about lobbying and boating? When questioned about how lobbyists fit into the United States’ representative democracy, this gaggle will recite chapter and verse that their occupation is part of the U.S. Constitution. (First Amendment: …the right of the people to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.) On a more practical level, lobbyists represent various interests. You can name the group, and they probably (or should have) a lobbyist. To that point, in 2015, there were 915 groups that had registered lobbyists laying claim to some part of the 3,704 bills introduced that legislative session. That number means that 147 Washington lawmakers may get quizzed at any point on 3,700 different ideas that made it into bill form. No easy chore for a part-time legislature and a chief reason that lobbyists have value to lawmakers: Lobbyists provide the Reader’s Digest executive summary of the bills to lawmakers. If lobbying is all about sales, which is my belief, then the techniques that leads to successful salespeople of traditional products translate here. At their essences, lobbyists take complex ideas and sell them in a language this is meaningful for lawmakers. The best way to harness energy from a bunch of (let’s say boaters) is start where the lawmakers are, not where the lobbyist and boaters are. One quick way to do this is to provide a financial contribution at these legislative “sales visits” (excuse me, meetings). This very experience happened to me the other day when I was invited by two recreational fishing lobbyists (Coastal Conservation Association and Fish Northwest) to visit with two key legislators about sportfishing policy. The state wants to increase fishing licenses. We want more fishing opportunities and this meeting (and campaign check) was the perfect time to deliver this message. Okay, more perfect would have meant that we were at a physical sportfishing business to reinforce the point that sportfishing isn’t just about relaxing and vacationing, it’s also about the thousands of jobs that depend on this activity. Ah, that brings me to the money part. The Legislature is graded by the leaders of their party and by their peers by how much money they can raise. Keep in mind that incumbents win over 90 percent of their re-elections. Rarely is money

56 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

used to win the lawmaker’s race with whom you are visiting. Instead, this donation is just “pass through” to the overall party structure. Money from Legislator X’s bank account is donated to the party (Republican or Democrat) and that money is then invested in tight races, swing races, and open seats. And the amount of currency (curro = to run) flowing around the system staggers the mind. In 2014, the last election when the entire state House and half of the state Senate ran, lobbyists and regular citizens donated $26.8 million to their favorite candidates. This year, to no one’s surprise, means more of the same. As this issue goes to print, candidates have raised $17.9 million. Okay, that’s all well and good, but how does that affect boating? Well, depending how you look at it, it’s good news that organizations like the Northwest Marine Trade Association, Northwest Yacht Brokers Association, and recreational fishing groups like Coastal Conservation Association and Fish Northwest are pooling our resources to have a bank account (also known as a “PAC” or “Political Action Committee”) that totals over $100,000. The lobbyists of these groups are regularly trading intelligence to ensure that we are supporting the candidates who most need our help and the safe incumbents who hold the prized committee chairs. There’s always a long list of legislators that we want to support but there’s only so much money. The NMTA and the other organizations have transitioned from “peanut buttering” the donations (meaning that we spread the donations thin around to as many lawmakers as possible) to a targeting approach where we pick a few champions and shower them with love (okay, money) to thank them for a job well done. And it’s this money that elected officials want, so they’ll take the meeting to learn more. Without the money, our collective schedule would be much less hectic this time of year. Given how close the state Senate and House are, it’s vital that we are coordinated. With so much power that could shift on election day (November 8, both the House and Senate are in play), we better be calculated and coalesced around priority legislation and legislators.

Galley Gourmet By Bridget Charters

Cool Evenings, Fall leaves, and Football! Summer has ended, school has started, and the light in the sky is diminished, bringing a change of color for the fall leaves. We are all hoping for another burst of hot weather, but know that fall is here! I have spent many a fall day out on a boat and one thing was constant, the sound of the radio transmitting a football game. Whether it be the Huskies, Cougars, or Seahawks, the murmur of the radio was there in the background. With the arrival of fall, it is nice to put a pot of stew on the stove or have a hearty soup simmering for lunch. Cruising isn’t over, and trips from the Sound to Lake Washington are a possibility for the boating version of tailgating near Husky Stadium. This is a great time to hang out on the boat for weekend days and call a few friends to join you for football and an early dinner. There is a chill in the air, but seafood can still be found. On a cool day, there is nothing better than a steamy bowl of mussels or clams with a crusty loaf of bread and a nice glass of red wine. Mussels and clams are easy to work with and just need a bit of cleaning before you cook them. If you harvest or buy shellfish, make sure you store them in water from the Sound, or without water in a bowl covered with wet towels in the refrigerator. Mussels and clams will keep for multiple days if stored properly in the refrigerator. The best way to tell if a clam or mussel has died is by tapping the opened shell against the edge of the bowl or your counter. If

the shell doesn’t close up, then it is time for a burial at sea. Have all your ingredients together and ready to go when cooking shellfish. It is a fast cooking process which only takes five minutes or so. Cooking shellfish also produces a nice broth that is delicious with warm, crusty bread as a snack, the first part of a meal, or as the entrée for the meal. Meat stews are also easy to make and can be made in advance and frozen for a great stored meal, or a cooked stew. Chilled properly, it will store nicely for four to five days. When cooking meat stews you can purchase stew meat or, if you are serving a big group, it is often less expensive to buy a large cut of meat. For beef stews I will buy a large pot roast, and for lamb stews, I prefer a leg of lamb. Figure on three to four ounces of stew meat per person. For a group of ten guests, plan on two to three pounds of meat, and plan on five pounds of meat for a group of twenty. Again, have all your ingredients ready, the process to assemble the stew is fairly quick. The most important part of cooking stews is to simmer very “slow and low” once the stew is assembled and cooking. It makes for a very tender stew meat. Stews are great with your favorite mashed potatoes, or with a side of vegetables and a salad. Now all you need is a great spot to anchor, a group of friends, and an exciting football game. Have your friends bring some fun appetizers, pick some of the newly released wines from Washington, and enjoy the fall!

Lamb Stew 3 pounds boneless lamb leg or shoulder, trimmed of excess fat and diced into 1-2 inch pieces 4-5 tablespoons olive oil 2 large onion, diced medium 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 3 stalks celery, diced medium 1 1/2 cups dry white wine

2 1/2 cups beef or chicken stock Salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste Aromatics – tie the following herbs in a bundle to add to stew while cooking (bouquet garni): 2 parsley sprigs 2 thyme sprigs 2 rosemary sprigs 2 bay leaves

Pat lamb dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat two tablespoons of oil in a six- to seven-quart wide heavy pot over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Then brown lamb in batches, turning occasionally, about four minutes per batch, transferring with a slotted spoon to a plate. Add remaining oil to pot and sauté chopped onion and celery over moderately high heat, stirring until onion is golden, about six minutes. Add the garlic and toast, then add wine and stock and deglaze pot by simmering, scraping up brown bits. Taste and adjust seasoning, then reduce heat to very low and return browned lamb to pot along with any juices that have accumulated on the plate and add aromatics (bouquet garni). Leave stew to simmer covered, for about two hours until very tender; or move the stew to the oven and cook at 300 degrees in middle of oven until tender, about one or two hours. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, garnish with parsley. While lamb is braising, cook vegetables in a five- to six-quart pot of boiling salted water until tender, about ten minutes, then transfer with a slotted spoon to a large bowl of ice and cold water to stop cooking (reserve cooking water).

Beef Bourguignon Bouquet Garni: Fresh parsley sprigs 2 fresh thyme sprigs 2 fresh bay leaves (can sub dry) 6 whole black peppercorns 3 pounds boneless beef sirloin or chuck, trimmed of excess fat 3 tablespoons olive oil 1/ cup bacon, diced med 2 1 large onion, finely chopped 2 stalks celery

1 large carrot 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 1/2 cups dry red wine 2 cups beef stock or broth 4 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon salt 1/ teaspoon black pepper 4 10 button mushrooms quartered 10 pearl onions, trimmed and peeled Crispy bacon Chopped parsley

Pat beef dry, then cut into one-and-a-half-inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. Heat two tablespoons oil in a six- to seven-quart wide heavy pot over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then brown beef in three batches (do not overcrowd or meat will steam), turning occasionally, about four minutes per batch, transferring with a slotted spoon to a dish to hold. Add remaining tablespoon oil to pot and sauté diced bacon until crisped (set some aside for garnish) then add mirepoix (chopped carrot, celery, and onion) and garlic over moderately high heat, stirring, until vegetables are golden, about six minutes. Add wine and stock and deglaze pot by boiling, scraping up brown bits. Return beef to pot along with any juices that have accumulated in bowl and add bouquet garni and pat of butter. Braise beef, covered, in middle of oven at 300 degrees until tender, about one hour. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. When meat is done, remove from heat and check consistency of sauce. If the sauce is too thin, remove most of the liquid leaving some juice in the meat, and keep meat covered in a warm spot. Reduce cooking liquid to sauce consistency and thicken with a touch of soft butter. For the garnish, trim button mushrooms and cut into quarters, fry in butter until crispy and golden, hold until ready to serve. Blanch pearl onions in boiling salted water, trim, peel, and simmer until tender in some of the beef cooking liquid. Serve stew alongside creamy mashed potatoes or steamed potatoes, garnish with pearl onions, mushrooms and bacon bits; sprinkle with parsley.

Deglaze with the white wine, add the tomatoes, parsley and bay, cover and cook on medium to high heat for three to four minutes. Uncover and check to see that all the mussels have opened. Once cooked, pour the mussels into a large bowl and garnish with parsley. Serve with a warm, crusty loaf of bread.

Steamed Manila Clams Meuniere style 2 tablespoons butter 1 tablespoon olive oil 1 pound Manila clams (serves 3-4 guests), washed in cold water to remove sand and mud 1/ yellow onion, sliced thin 2 2-3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped

1 cup white wine Juice of 1 lemon 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped 1 bay leaf Salt and pepper to taste

Heat a large 12” sauté pan or low stock pot with a lid, add the butter and oil, and allow to melt. Add the onions, sweat on low heat until the onions become translucent, season with salt and pepper. Then add the garlic and increase the heat, adding the clams. Allow to sauté for three to five minutes and deglaze with the white wine, add the parsley and lemon and cover.

INTO THE GROOVE The competitive Pacific Northwest racing scene can be daunting for sailors new to the courses, but fall offers some of the best chances for those wanting to up their game. Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson

From the outside, the sailboat racing community can appear to be an exclusive group. Racers mostly speak in code, arguing over the benefits of a kiwi douse over weather stripping while keeping a straight face as if these words have real meaning. They stand around in circles having in-depth discussions about tidal rivers, apparent wind angles, and localized weather patterns. The intimidating verbiage can be an immediate turn-off to the new sailor looking to get involved with racing. What is important to realize is that, at its core, racing is no different than any other sport, albeit a bit more complex than some. At the end of the day, it is simply a way to enjoy the great outdoors with friends and family. As with all things, expertise comes with practice, and just as Rome wasn’t built in a day, neither was any top racing sailor. Whether you grew up cruising with your family, sailed at summer camp, or are just starting out with the sport, there is no better way to become a better sailor than going racing. But where to start? With clubs, classes, clinics, and regattas, it can be a daunting task to get your foot in the door with the community. To newcomers, sailing can appear downright confusing, not least because sailors seem to speak a different language. Every part of the boat and sails has a special name and so do all the maneuvers. If you don’t know a leech from a clew or a masthead from a tweaker, don’t panic. While getting out on a boat with friends is great fun and a fantastic way to get comfortable on the water, formal lessons are by far the best way to begin really understanding what is happening. The real benefit is to focus on the fundamentals in a controlled and safe environment. Taking the time to

F

work with an experienced instructor on the core concepts such as boat handling and the rules of the road are foundational to any new sailor’s confidence. Breaking bad habits that can be potentially dangerous is key to building the skills needed to become a strong and well-rounded sailor. Seattle has many options for new sailors and all have their own twists and offerings that cover the spectrum. The Center for Wooden Boats, located on the shores of South Lake Union, offers a range of courses and boat rentals through the year. After mastering the basics, sailors can rent boats by the hour to brush up on their skills or enjoy a picnic on the lake with friends. Across the lake in Fremont, She Sails Seattle is a female-owned and operated sailing school that offers fun and supportive courses for women as well as coed lessons for anyone who wants to learn to sail. Not just limited to basic sailing lessons, the staff at She Sails is available for private instruction as well as private charters on board their boats. Based out of Shilshole Marina, Windworks Sailing School runs lessons on their fleet of modern keel boats nearly every day of the week. They offer a range of courses ranging from a two-hour introduction to sailing all the way to a fiveday course out of Anacortes, which covers every aspect of bareboat chartering. Also located at Shilshole Marina, the Seattle Sailing Club offers a full range of American Sailing Association (ASA) courses that take new sailors from the basics all the way to confidently skippering a fully-crewed racing boat. As well as lessons, the club offers membership plans that allow sailors to take advantage of the expansive fleet of boats and even take part in local races. Oliver Davis can regularly be found teaching sailing throughout the Seattle area. Davis opines, “Maximizing time on

the water is key. Join a club where you sail lots of different boats and let someone else take care of the maintenance. Once you hoist main and jib and push away from the dock, you’re on the water and sailing.” While working through the entirety of the courses offered by a sailing school may not be necessary, taking the time to properly learn the fundamentals and master the basics is well worth it in the long run. Now that you have a strong foundation and the basics are covered, how do you begin racing? Regardless of whether you grew up sailing or recently began, the move toward racing can be daunting. Many of the same sailing schools have racing clubs and clinics that introduce the rules and basics of racing. This is a fantastic way to take the next step after mastering the basics towards racing, explains Davis, who regularly coaches clinics and runs races. “Seattle is great because there’s so many venues to sail, year-round. If you want to get into racing and don’t know how to start, seek out opportunities where learning is the focus. Friday nights in the summer, the Center for Wooden Boats runs a twilight series in 20-foot keelboats on Lake Union. They set short courses and get 7-8 races a night. The chalk talk after sailing is super casual and ranges from basic sail trim to rules and tactics. Folks can sign up as skipper, or as crew. No spinnakers, the downwind legs are too short. Seriously though, racing without kites (spinnakers) makes you a better sailor because you jibe on a dime when you see an opportunity. There’s a reason Star boat sailors own the America’s Cup. Also in the summer, Windworks runs a great Capri 22 series, Thursday nights at Shilshole. They also race white sails (no spinnakers) and do three to four buoy races per evening. The Continued on Page 62

longer races make for more focus on strategy and sail trim.” In addition to these racing clinics, several of the local clubs offer options for members to take out its fleet or rental boats and participate in the local racing series. Currently the Seattle Sailing Club’s J/80 fleet is tipping the scales with eight boats racing in a one design class every week at the Corinthian Yacht Club and Sloop Tavern Yacht Club weeknight series. With plans for over ten boats racing in summer of 2017, it is setting up to be a very competitive one design fleet and a great place to refine racing skills. During the winter, teams at Windworks often take out a 35-40 foot cruising boat for casual events like the Snowbird Series and Sloop Tavern Yacht Club races. They race in the non-flying sails (spinnakers) class, so everyone has the opportunity to drive and trim the sails, learn from each other, and pick up basics about race-course decision making on the water. This can be a great way to experience big-boat racing for the first time and make it to the party afterwards. Corinthian Yacht Club is also throwing its name in the hat to give women an opportunity to get on the water with larger keel boats through the newly formed Women’s Sailing Series. Taking place Thursday evenings throughout the summer months, the new event is open to both club members as well as non-members looking to get involved with the sailing community. The event invites female sailors of all skill levels out on the water with experienced skippers as an introduction to big boat sailing and racing maneuvers. This series easily transitions into the Women’s Race Team that currently has three separate teams

on the water and is looking to expand. Long term plans for this event includes a racing series for female-crewed boats as well as regatta trophies for all female crews. The whole purpose of the series is in support of getting more women involved in racing in a constructive and fun environment. Overall, making the step from learning the basics of sailing to racing takes time. It is an endless endeavor and even the best sailors in the world are still learning every day they are on the water. Once you have a few races under your belt, the next step is making the jump from the classes and clinics and into a race crew. This is actually easier than it sounds, as most racing boats require several people to race and owners are eager to find new sailors to come out and take part. It is sometimes difficult for skippers to find enough crew for every race and as such, new sailors that are eager and happy to take part are always welcome. It’s important to remember, that while most skippers and crews are happy to teach while racing, there is an expectation that fundamental concepts and basic boat handling are well understood. Humility goes a long way when onboard a new racing boat and a question is always better than a mistake. Davis, who has spent his fair share of time with top level racing programs recommends, “If you’re new crew stepping on to a good race program, remember that the best sailors on the boat are the sailors of that boat. Hike hard until they work you into the team. Volunteer for non-glam jobs, or be a grinding monster. If you’re lucky enough to be trimming, it’s less about sail shape than being in the same mode as the driver. If you’re doing the foredeck, make best friends

Spending time on the water with an experienced instructor is the most effective way to break bad habits early and learn the techniques needed to succeed on the race course.

Big fleets and close quarters sailing is what draws many people into racing. Building a strong understanding of the basics of sail trim and boat handling is instrumental to contributing to a competitive race program.

with your mast-man, and get to the boat early so every sail is perfectly packed. Keep your head out of the boat. Getting good is all about anticipating jibes, sail changes, and the next leg of the race.” The sailing community has something of a snowball effect when it comes to getting invitations to go out racing on boats. As people get to know you and see you around, they are more likely to invite you out on a race. At the end of the day, a skipper who knows you and sees you as an active member of the racing community is going to want you on their boat. However flattering this may be, it is important to show loyalty, always jumping ship to the fastest boat you can find is hardly a way to say thank you to a boat owner that invited a new sailor out on a race. No matter what the boat, the most important thing is to always show up, canceling at the last minute is a sure fire way to not get invited back. Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle makes an outstanding effort to introduce crews and skippers. The CYC crew board, available from the yacht club’s website, is constantly updated with both skippers looking for crew as well as crew looking to get out on a boat. It is a great place to start by posting a sailing resume and to connect with different boat owners and crews. In addition to the crew board every Friday evening, throughout the year CYC hosts an open house dinner, often with a speaker giving interesting talks about everything from the racing rules of sailing to ecological efforts around the Pacific Northwest. Open to all members as well as non-members and everything in between, the dinner is a great way for people looking to crew and race to mingle with boat owners as well as other racers.

Even lifelong racers and crews of top boats still rely on the fundamentals of sailing to get around the racecourse quickly.

Continued from Page 62

According to many top racers, one design classes are the best way to learn and progress. Sailors are on an evening playing field where tactics and boat handling are all that separate first from last.

Another great way to get to know the racing community is to take advantage of the “just for fun” races that take place through the sailing calendar. These events, such as the Lake Union Duck Dodge, Downtown Sailing Series, and the various charity benefit regattas, are great ways to get to know a boat and its crew in a less serious environment. Many race boats take part in these events, and they are great opportunities to network with owners and crews. It is easy to get caught up in the party at these casual races and it is important to remember that first impressions are lasting. In these races, being helpful is honestly more important than showing everyone your skill as a racer. Being the first to jump in and fold sails, coil lines, or take the trash to the bin is noticed by the skipper and crew far more than calling that puff or nailing the perfect roll tack. Often times, it is experienced racers that find themselves without a boat, having recently moved to Seattle and who are unfamiliar with the racing community. This is the situation Taylor Joosten found herself in last year when she moved to Seattle from Chicago. A lifelong sailor and racer, she was starting from scratch in a new town. When asked how she got involved with the Northwest racing community, Joosten said, “One of the yacht clubs (Corinthian Yacht Club) advertised a ‘Skipper/ Crew meet and greet’ and I just showed up and started talking to people. CYC also has a crew finder Google group and I responded to a couple

posts looking for crew for the summer. Once I had a foot in the door it became easy to connect with other parts of the community.” Having grown up sailing everything from 470 dinghies to Farr 40 keel boats, Joosten found herself in high demand. Now sailing two to four days a week through the summer, she comments that, “Seattle does a great job of connecting skippers and crew. Keeping an eye on the CYC website and checking the crew finder Google group were both helpful. There’s definitely high quality and quantity for racing here. You can find a fleet or a boat to race on just about every night of the week.” Now an active crew member on several boats, ranging from the super competitive Thistle and J/24 one design fleets on Lake Washington, to racing in the ORC big boat fleet, Joosten is a great example of what combining networking, experience, and a good attitude can do for a sailor that is new to the area. The fall regattas are fast approaching and the clock is ticking down on getting involved with the Seattle race scene for this coming season. Corinthian Yacht Club of Edmonds Foulweather Bluff race is coming up on October 1 and is the first race on the calendar for many of the racing fleet. The weekend racing continues with Corinthian Yacht Club Seattle’s Puget Sound Sailing Championships on October 8, 9, 15, and 16, and Seattle Yacht Club’s Grand Prix is on October 21 through 23. With racing carrying on through the winter months, it is not too late to get involved. With a keen understanding of the core concepts and a willingness to participate, moving from casual day sailing into the racing world just takes some good old fashion drive. Sailing is a friendly and social sport and putting yourself in the right place, with the knowledge, is all it takes to race the wind. Doug Hansen is a Seattle native and grew up cruising and racing in the Northwest. After spending several years taking care of boats and competing in regattas throughout North America and Europe, he has returned to Seattle to complete a degree in Mechanical Engineering. He is an active participant in the Seattle racing community and enjoys sailing on all types of boats.

WEATHER A responsible mariner in the Pacific Northwest needs to be well versed in the region’s weather or risk expensive property and lives of loved ones. By Chris Couch

What do you think of when you think about West Coast W weather? Perhaps the beaches of sunny southern California or the fog and great sailing conditions of San Francisco Bay come to mind. How about the punishing winds of Cape Blanco, Cape Mendocino, or Point Conception?

66 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

Maybe the great kite flying weather of Cannon Beach or Long Beach, or perhaps the winter storms? You know, the storms that can show up every other day and howl for weeks. But, to be fair, we here in the Pacific Northwest also enjoy some pretty darn nice stretches as well, and those perfect days are just one aspect of why we love living here. As a delivery captain with 150,000 miles over the last 20 years, I have experienced all of the above up close and personal many times over. The weather is the main concern of my business. When I move a boat, my timing is dictated by the weather and not by schedule, so I have to be very good at making sound, safe, and prudent


decisions when it comes to the weather. I have had to become my own weather man. Over the years and miles of running boats up and down the West Coast, I have gained an intimate knowledge and respect for the weather patterns of the Eastern Pacific Ocean. When we think of the movement of air around the planet, we think of wind, i.e., the horizontal movement of air. However, most of the air in our atmosphere moves vertically, up and down. For the purpose of this article, we will only talk about the Northern Hemisphere, although the same dynamics happen in the Southern Hemisphere. It all starts at the equator. Air is heated and rises into the atmosphere. As it rises,

it flows northward and cools. By the time it reaches approximately 30 degrees north, this colder, denser air starts to descend. Where this air descends, a high pressure area is created. In the Atlantic Ocean this area is called the Bermuda High, which is responsible for the Northeast Trade winds of the Caribbean. In our part of the world, it is called the East Pacific High. The East Pacific High is a dominant area of high pressure generally located between San Francisco and the Hawaiian Islands. The East Pacific High is responsible for the Northeast Trade winds of the East Pacific, and is why the West Coast of the United States and Baja California has prevailing winds from the north/northwest.

The East Pacific High is the fundamental structure of our West Coast weather. Depending on the meandering course of the jet stream, it will drift north, south, east, or west. The low-pressure system storms that move across the Pacific will either move up and over the high, or in the case of larger, stronger systems, move it out of the way. The weather of the East Pacific fundamentally is a battle of wills between the forces of the East Pacific High and the lows of the jet stream. But through it all, the East Pacific High dominates the Northeast Pacific Ocean. If left to itself, the prevailing winds up and down the West Coast would be around ten knots from the Continued on Page 68

One of the biggest problems with swells in the rocky Northwest is safely entering and exiting ports, particularly along the Pacific coast. Continued from Page 67

north/northwest. But, as we mariners and beach dwellers who spend time out there know, that is not always the case. There is another little known feature of our West Coast weather. It is called the thermal low, and unless you study the weather like I do or listen to NOAA weather radio, you would never hear about it. Thermal low activity occurs year-round, but mostly spring through fall, over land where heating from the sun causes the air to rise. Rising air creates low air pressure. When this localized area of low air pressure is adjacent to the East Pacific High, the pressure gradient is greatest and much higher winds will occur. These areas of much higher winds can be several hundred miles long and extend up to a hundred miles offshore. They can produce sustained winds from 25 to 35 knots and, since the last few years, last from several days to several weeks. They generally set up in central Oregon and along California. The coastal areas that can experience these pockets of very high wind will vary with the position of the East Pacific High and the location of the thermal low activity. There are some typical locations that are notorious for these winds and they are also areas of high terrain. From Cape Blanco to the south, Cape Mendocino to the south, Point Arena to the south, and the Bay Area to the south to Point Conception. These capes and points can also exhibit the phenomenon known as Cape Effect. This is where the wind will be squeezed up against the high terrain of these areas and due to the Venturi effect be accelerated even faster. This brings us to the subject of waves. Waves we typically deal with are created by the wind, and their size is governed by how hard the wind blows and how far it blows. Waves will increase in size

68 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

the farther they travel with a given wind speed until they reach a particular limit. For example, 15 knots of wind will produce a maximum wave height of about two feet. White caps begin to appear with a wind speed of around 12 knots. During the winter, when big storms come across the North Pacific, large ocean swells are one of the greatest spectacles and, for the surfers of the West Coast, one of nature’s greatest creations. From Huntington Beach to the North Shore of

Oahu, and from Mavericks near Half Moon Bay to Westport, Washington, large ocean swell creates some of the best surf spots in the world. But for those of us trying to transit the West Coast, they can bring very hazardous conditions. Like I say often, “It’s all about the wave period.” I deliver boats north and south along the coast all year long. It is not uncommon for me to encounter large ocean swell during the fall through spring months. I have had many trips with a swell height up to 15 feet, but with a period of up to 15 seconds or more. I had one northbound trip with a swell of mostly 10 feet at 10 seconds. That is still relatively comfortable. My rule of thumb for a swell that is safe and manageable is a wave period that equals or is greater than the height of the wave starting at approximately 10 seconds. If the period is less than the height, you will want to avoid those conditions. The longer the period, the more gradual the wave. Most weather sites will give you forecast wave heights and dominant wave periods. The real problem we run into on the West Coast with large ocean swell is when we want to enter or depart one of our ports. Almost everyone has heard of the Columbia River Bar Entrance, the “Graveyard of the Pacific.” Well, every entrance from LaPush, Washington to San Francisco, California is a bar entrance. The only exceptions are Crescent City and Bodega Bay, both in California. One can come and go into those two ports under almost any condition. I will routinely enter and depart Crescent City with a large, long period ocean swell. With all of the other

WAVE TERMS Wave Height: Height in feet or meters from the trough to the crest. Wave Period: Distance or how far apart waves are in seconds from crest to crest. Chop: A wind-driven wave from approximately two to seven seconds. Swell: A wind-driven chop that travels over long distance. It attenuates over time and distance. The height gets shorter and the period gets longer. It starts to be called swell at about eight seconds. Ocean Swell: Swell that has traveled great distances with periods of 10 seconds or greater. For example: A Six-foot wave at six seconds is a big chop. A Six-foot wave at 10 seconds is a gentle swell. It’s all about the period of the wave. Bar Entrance: A jettied entrance with a bay or river associated with it. Every entrance from Cape Flattery to San Francisco, except Crescent City and Bodega Bay in California, is a bar entrance.


KNOW YOUR WEATHER entrances, there are a few basic rules you need to follow. First, because of crab pot activity around most entrances and ports, I recommend coming and going only during the daylight. In fact, along most of the coast from Monterey Bay north, it is possible to find pots in water up to 400 feet deep. I only transit at night in water that is deeper than 400 feet. Second, crossing the entrances should be done only at slack or flood tidal current. When a wave approaches the entrance during an outgoing or ebb tide, that outgoing current will slow and build the incoming wave to create more hazardous conditions. Unless it is relatively flat outside, cross only during the slack or flood and always only in the daylight. Understanding the basic components and function of our West Coast weather is the first step. Learning how to watch it and use it effectively and safely is the second. There are three basic tools that I use in my travels up and down the coast. The first is a website that gives me winds, wave heights, and wave periods every three hours out to seven days: buoyweather. com. It uses computer generated forecast models from the North American Model, the computer model that all weather forecasters use in the United States. Second is The National Weather Service (NWS). The NWS provides marine forecasts out to five days. Personally, I use NWS Eureka, California’s website, because it has a page with all of the forecast areas in one place. The website is basically one-stop shopping for the entire West Coast. I will use NWS forecasts in conjunction with the buoyweather models. Third, and probably one of the most useful, is a website that gives me access to all of the weather buoys from Puget Sound to Southern California. National Data Buoy Center gives me real time hourly observations from weather buoys and stations located on the coast. It is an invaluable tool to actually see what is happening and to compare real time with what has been forecasted. We are unique here on the West Coast of North America. Our weather travels from west to east over thousands of miles of open ocean, from the rains of the Pineapple Express to the almost hurricane force winds of our winter storms, and from gigantic long ocean swell to the amazing clear blue skies of a winter high. We live in a pretty special place with some very special weather. Whether you boat in Puget Sound, the Columbia River, the Bay Area, or Southern California, our West Coast weather can be a treat or a test. It is important that if we are to be safe and get the most from our West Coast weather experience, we must do and practice these three things: Keep your vessel and equipment properly maintained, always plan ahead and think ahead, and above all, make safe, prudent decisions with regards to the weather. As I write this, the last several years has seen some interesting shifts in our West Coast weather, shifts that not only have

Whatever it is you do, and however you use and enjoy the weather of the West Coast of the United States, having a good working knowledge of its inner workings is helpful. And, for those of us on the water, it is even more important. Let me start with a few basic terms. High Pressure: Air that descends, creating higher pressure at the surface. The high pressure systems rotate clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere. High pressure systems are generally associated with fair and dry weather. As the air descends, the system’s pressure rises and it warms. Low Pressure: Air that is rising, creating lower pressure at the surface. The low pressure systems rotate counter clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere. Low pressure systems generally are associated with wet, unsettled weather. As air rises, the system’s pressure decreases and cools. When it cools to its dew point, the moisture in the air condenses and precipitates. Coriolis Effect: The effect caused by the rotation of the earth, whereby in the northern hemisphere, wind that flows north is deflected to the east. Wind that flows south is deflected to the west. Thermal Low: Heated air that rises to create a local, thermally induced low pressure area. Cape Effect: The acceleration of winds against high terrain. Jet Stream: The jet stream that affects us is called the polar jet stream and is a fast flowing, narrow, meandering current of air located in the upper atmosphere between 30 and 40 thousand feet in the middle to northern latitudes. It generally acts like a steering mechanism that directs low pressure systems and effects the position of the East Pacific high.

directly affected my business in yacht delivery, but impacts every mariner who transits the West Coast and even everyone who lives in the western United States. However you feel or whatever you think about climate change, things are changing. The Arctic is warming, and with the decreasing temperature difference between the Arctic and the mid-latitudes has come a shift in the behavior of the jet stream. There are literally hundreds of scientists and studies when it comes to this, but it is probably best explained and backed up in an article by Dr. Jennifer Francis in the Scientific American “Weird Winter Weather Plot Thickens as Arctic Swiftly Warms” (Feb. 19, 2015). This is the same jet stream that effects the direction of the North Pacific lows and the position of the East Pacific High. With the shift we are seeing, the East Pacific High is positioned in ways that block rain-bearing storms from getting through to the West Coast, which has led to dryer and warmer conditions for all of us. For me, and for anyone wishing to transit the coast, the East Pacific High

has been setting up and staying relatively stationary for much longer periods of time. Along with warmer temperatures, thermal low activity also sets up for longer periods of time. This in turn has created the pockets of higher winds which now can last up to several weeks. For anyone wishing to experience the West Coast environment safely, proper planning and decision making are the keys. But having a lot of patience and flexibility have also become very necessary, especially as things are a’ changing. Captain Chris Couch is a successful Pacific Northwest-based delivery captain who has been widely used by companies like Ocean Alexander and Nordhavn for the last 26 years. Couch enjoyed a 14-year career in the U.S. Coast Guard that took him around the country to the East Coast, Gulf, and West Coast on all kinds of vessels. He has been at the helm through the Panama Canal five times and for four transpacific crossings. His The Checklist is enjoyed by and distributed to yachts owners and is a fantastic resource that covers just about everything Pacific Northwest.

If you’ve ever missed a ferry and watched it depart without you, you understand how the expression “missing the boat” originated! It’s frustrating enough to make some people nostalgic for the good old days of the Mosquito Fleet, when ferryboats by the hundreds plied the waters of Puget Sound, and there was always time to wait for one more fare/passenger.

L

Looking at the faded images of those bygone days, it’s easy to forget that there were problems back then as well. Unlike the Lake Washington Ship Canal (featured in the September, 2016 issue) or the Washington State Ferry system, the Mosquito Fleet was--as its name implies--entirely de-centralized, and for most of its life independent from almost any government oversight. This was a blessing on the small routes where everyone knew the captain and the schedule was flexible, but not so on the main routes when one of the well-heeled owners succeeded in driving the competition out and establishing a monopoly. The development of ferries was an essential part of the settlement of the Northwest. In the pioneer era, the early roads around Puget Sound were just muddy tracks, and the waterways were the only reliable way to transport passengers and freight over any distance. This gave the region around Puget Sound a huge advantage over the rest of the state. The first white settlers in the 1850s naturally chose land close to the shoreline, and soon began to construct simple log canoes or rowboats for fishing and transport. Citizens rowed their boats or rode their horses to the nearest pier, which was the center of community life in those days. The pier was the place where the settlers could meet, trade goods, and hear the news from the rest of the state. Some enterprising fellow soon built a boat big enough to safely carry a few passengers and their boxes and charge for trips to the nearest market or county seat. Small ferryboats were cheap to build, could be rowed or sailed, and could carry passengers, lumber, or animals if necessary. And of course, they stopped at every pier along their route until they had filled every inch of space. As soon as there was enough lumber, livestock, or crops to ship, coastal sailing vessels would anchor nearby and hoist the cargo aboard by hand. But, as we all know, the wind is unreliable on the Sound, so the first long-distance ferry service in the 1850s that managed to stay even close to schedule used Native Americans paddling big log canoes. They carried passengers and mail from the village of Seattle to the capital in

Olympia. It took two to three days with camps set up on the beach at night. The steam engine was the solution, but building boilers and engines was a highly specialized business. Fortunately, the California Gold Rush of 1849 brought hundreds of sailing ships round Cape Horn. Some had auxiliary steam power and found their way north into Washington where they became the first powered ferries and spent their last years here. When the hull was scrapped, the engine was saved and installed in a newer boat, a tradition that continues to this day. The last remaining steam-powered ferry, the Virginia V, launched in 1922 and proudly runs on an original 1898 steam engine cast at the Heffernan Machine Works on Lake Union in downtown Seattle. Smaller Mosquito Boats like this tended to lead a fairly uneventful life, chugging between the small ports and islands, but the biggest boats were more concerned with making money than winning friends and were quite likely to abandon a route if it proved unprofitable.

The Unsinkable Eliza Anderson One of the earliest and most famous of the big steamers built in the Pacific Northwest was the sidewheeler Eliza Anderson, launched in 1859 in Portland, Oregon where there were a number of riverboat builders. She was 197 feet long, 25.5 feet on the beam, and was equipped with a steam calliope that could blast a selection of popular tunes, making her a favorite at the dockside. She

was all wood, powered by a low-pressure boiler driving a basic single cylinder walking-beam engine, and was destined to have many more adventures than anyone could imagine. Before she departed for Puget Sound, news arrived of the Fraser River Gold Rush. The owners took her straight to Victoria, Canada where they saw an opportunity to make some extra money. There was a complete lack of roads or trails into the mainland of British Columbia, so U.S. steamers were allowed to work on the Fraser up to Fort Langley on payment of a $12 “sufferance” to the local authority per run. After two round-trips, the Eliza Anderson returned to Victoria carrying $40,000 in gold dust. By June, the captain, Tom Wright, decided he could make a profitable run carrying newlyrich miners south to Olympia. He arrived there for the first time on July 9, 1859 and found that Puget Sound had already become a shipping point for supplies and gold seekers. After a few round trips to Seattle, the Eliza Anderson was back on the Fraser, fighting the first of many “fare wars,” this one with the Canadian steamboat Otter. Fares were driven down from $10 per passenger to 50 cents. When the Otter gave up, fares shot right back up to a profitable $6 per passenger. However, business dropped off in the winter and the Eliza Anderson turned to the Olympia-Victoria mail run in December, 1859. Captain Wright set the schedule at one trip to Olympia and one trip to the Fraser Continued on Page 73

The massive T.J. Potter began life plying the Columbia River in 1888, and eventually graduated to Puget Sound Service. She was one of the fastest and most luxurious Mosquito Fleet boats in the fleet’s heyday.

River every week. On Thursday, at the inconvenient hour of 0300 hours, she’d steam back to Olympia, laying over there on the weekend. On the route up Puget Sound, the Eliza Anderson stopped at Steilacoom, Seattle and Port Townsend. Fares were $20 a person, freight $5 to $10 a ton, and cattle $15 a head. Her name soon became a household word, but not always in a positive way. It was said that “no steamboat ever went slower and made money faster.” In the early 1860s, there were no telegraphs in Puget Sound, and mail carried by steamboat was the fastest way of transmitting news. The the U.S. Post Office Department paid $36,000 per year for mail transport. On November 27, 1860, the Eliza Anderson brought the news to Port Townsend of Abraham Lincoln’s victory three weeks after the November 4 election. As the population of Puget Sound rose after the Civil War, the outlying settlements quickly grew into towns by exploiting their natural resources, producing vast quantities of lumber and canned salmon that were all hauled to the big ports by the local steamboats. By the 1870s, there were hundreds of ferries on about 40 established routes on the Sound and they all needed a steady supply of coal to keep the steam pressure up. Seattle was emerging as a major maritime transportation hub with one notable advantage. Coal was available on the waterfront. It was supplied by the mines at the south end of Lake Washington via a tortuous route of wagon, barge, portage, barge, and early railroad from Lake Union before the ship canal opened.

By 1948 the Mosquito Fleet was mostly history, but still close in the memories of many. The nascent Puget Sound Maritime Historical society organized a race between the Virginia V and Sightseer, an almost identical boat formerly known as Vashona. The Virginia V triumphed by a narrow margin.

An artist’s depiction of Seattle’s waterfront, circa 1892, is a scene full of steamers, side-wheelers, and paddle-wheelers, in addition to a few smaller boats (some added by the photographer in the darkroom).

Many fast, luxurious vessels were built specifically for service between the cities of Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia with the hope of a high profit margin. One of the biggest was the 283’ Yosemite, which routinely boarded more than 1,000 passengers. However, the easiest way to get rich was by putting the competition out of business by fair means or foul. In 1871, the Eliza Anderson finally lost a fare war, which ended with the customary non-compete agreement, whereby the Eliza Anderson and the company’s other boat, the Olympia, were laid up. The Eliza Anderson became out of date and fell on hard times until a 72-ounce gold nugget was discovered in the Cassiar District of British Columbia in 1875. The old boat was repaired and once again loaded with mining gear and prospectors for the run up the Inland Passage. When the Cassiar rush gave out, she returned to Seattle, where she sat between 1877 and 1883 and eventually sank at her moorings. In 1883, she was raised, pumped out, cleaned up, and put on the run from Seattle to New Westminster, British Columbia. This time the competition was the Oregon Railway and Navigation Company that was bidding to monopolize all water and rail transport in the Pacific Northwest. The Eliza Anderson ran on a shoestring and forced the fare down to $1. She was winning the battle until she was seized by the Canadian customs collector for carrying illegal Chinese immigrants. The owners were forced to sell the old boat to the Puget Sound and Alaska Steamship Company, which ran her again on the Victoria route. In about 1890, the Eliza Anderson was laid up again, this time on the Duwamish River as a gambling hall. She would have ended her days there except for the discovery of gold in the Yukon Territory. Gold seekers were willing to pay for a passage on anything that floated, and the old Eliza Anderson was dragged out of retirement one more time. The Moran Shipyard in Seattle gave her a quick haul out, patched her up, and sent her out to join a flotilla of five worn-out hulls popularly described as “floating coffins.” One was the veteran steam tug, Richard Holyoke, towing three of the hulks. The trip north was, needless to say, a floating fiasco that mercifully ended without loss of life at Dutch

Harbor, Alaska. After a steam pipe explosion and a collision with a dock, the Eliza Anderson was finally abandoned by her passengers, and sat at anchor in Dutch Harbor until March, 1898 when a storm washed her up on a beach where she slowly broke up.

The END OF AN ERA The golden years of the Mosquito Fleet only lasted from the 1880s to the early 1920s. The Seattle-Tacoma commuter run was one of the last routes to survive competition from the electric inter-urban railway lines in the early 1900s, and later from the rapidly developing highway system. The last big passenger ferry was built of steel in Tacoma, named after the city and launched in 1913. She was steampowered, propeller-driven, 215 feet long, and could make the run from Seattle to Tacoma in 77 minutes dock to dock. But by 1930, the Tacoma had made her last run. The completion of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge in 1935 released a fleet of six 256foot modern diesel-electric auto ferries built in 1927. They were sold in 1940 to the Puget Sound Navigation Company, also known as the “Black Ball Line.” In 1951, the Steel Electrics and almost all of Black Ball’s fleet was purchased by the newly-formed Washington State Ferries (WSF). WSF ran them every day for over 55 years in true Mosquito Fleet fashion; until the hulls begin to fail in 2007.

VIRGINIA V - The Queen of the Fleet Fortunately, one fine example of a generalpurpose Mosquito Fleet steamboat remains afloat and active, the Virginia V, based on South Lake Union in Seattle. She was the last boat operated by West Pass Transportation that connected farmers and residents along Colvos Passage and the west side of Vashon Island with Seattle and Tacoma. Captain Nelse Christensen and John Holm founded the company in 1910 to improve on the poor ferry service available. Their first boat was the Virginia Merrill, a 54-foot, gas-powered tug renamed Virginia and converted to carry passengers. In 1912, the Virginia II, a 77-footer with a 110-horsepower Corliss gas engine, took over. Curiously, their next three boats were all steam-powered, probably because those early gas engines were unreliable. In


1914, the company expanded by purchasing the 92-foot steamer Typhoon and renamed her Virginia III. In 1918 they purchased the 98-foot Tyrus, and renamed her Virginia IV. By 1920, they finally had the funding to build a fine new boat to their specifications. In 1921, a Scandinavian shipwright named Matthew Anderson set up a temporary yard on a beach and began construction of the 125-foot Virginia V. She was well built of local fir with only a rough set of plans to guide the builders, but was nicely shaped in traditional ferry style. Cargo was loaded onto the main deck via the sliding doors below the wheelhouse while passengers were accommodated by the upper deck. She was launched in March 1922 and towed to Seattle for the installation of her oil-burning boiler and steam engine, recently removed from Virginia IV and already 24 years old. On June 11, 1922, she began her career., which was nearly cut short on

San Juan Island

October 21, 1934, when a severe storm swept through the Pacific Northwest. Virginia V was attempting to dock at Olalla when the storm hit. The powerful wind held the ship against the dock as the waves pounded her against the pilings, then she took on a list, destroying the superstructure. The ship was swiftly rebuilt from the main deck up at the Lake Washington Shipyard at Houghton, near modern-day Kirkland, and returned to service on December 5, 1934. Each summer from 1922 to 1970 (except during World War II) Virginia V carried thousands of Camp Fire Girls between Seattle and Camp Sealth on Vashon Island. Some of those women appear on an excellent 23-minute video made by students at the Art Institute of Seattle, recalling their excitement at riding on “Virginia Vee” as she was called. But that wasn’t enough to pay the bills in the wartime economy, and West Pass Transportation went

out of business in 1942 while the Virginia was operating on the Seattle-Fort Worden run carrying soldiers. New owners sent her to the Columbia River, on the Portland-Astoria run. This odd move was also unsuccessful. Unable to pay her crew, she was seized for debts and sold at Vancouver, Washington by the U.S. Marshals. Fortunately, she was purchased by O.H. “Doc” Freeman who saved many fine old boats from the scrapyard. He resold the vessel at his dock in Fremont on Lake Union less than a year later. Captain Howell Parker put the boat back into operation carrying Continued on Page 86

SHOp CLASS to the REscue By Peter Schrappen That amount reflects the average debt owed by students graduating from four-year colleges in 2015, bringing the national education debt of students nationwide to nearly $70 billion, reports The Wall Street Journal.

According to the Institute of College Access & Success (TICAS), Washingtonians on average fair a little better and owe $24,804 when they leave college. On the flip side, Washington is not faring well with the number of students who graduate from high school. The state ranks 38th in high school graduation rates according to TICAS. Washington’s marine industry is not immune to these national trends, and they directly affect the care your boat gets when it’s serviced at your favorite yard. “In some ways, our education system is broken,” said Dave Gering, Executive Director of the Manufacturing Industrial Council (MIC), which is located in the SoDo area of Seattle. “We are doing our kids a disservice with the ‘college for all’ mantra of the past 20 years, and we need to build better pathways that help lead students to careers.” Gering is the de facto leader of Core Plus, a Washington state-wide program focused on restoring high school shop programs. A coalition of nonprofits, trade associations, Boeing, JP Morgan Chase, and others have coalesced around a simple concept: Offer diverse learning opportunities to high school students and give them avenues right after graduation to high-quality jobs that address tremendous needs in boating and maritime as well as the aviation, construction, and agriculture sectors. “What maritime is facing is exactly the same dilemma Boeing struggles with. How

do we find high-quality workers over time to keep manufacturing world-class planes and boats in the Northwest?” said Gering. Some could argue that maritime, and recreational boating specifically, are facing more acute workforce shortages in Washington than their maritime colleagues across the country. “Washington state continues to lead the country in boat sales, and these boats need to be worked on somewhere with high-quality systems experts,” said George Harris of the Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA). “There are a couple of reasons that this area is so conducive to world-class boating. Looking outside, there’s the scenery, of course, but there’s also the 69 boatyards in our state and the 28,000 marine tradesmen and women working on everything from recreational boats to large cargo vessels,” he said. While some readers may be surprised to see his reference to large cargo vessels and recreational boating in the same sentence, Harris has recently embraced the thinking that manufacturing and repair work across the sectors are fundamentally the same core competencies. “Due to our investment in Core Plus, I now see the close link between what Boeing’s workers do and how our boat builders go about building their latest project. It’s the same skill set, but applied and catered to differently, says Harris. “All that said, our state and the entire marine industry is facing a continuing

graying of the workforce,” he added. “We simply do not have the young people learning the skills in school that will ready them for employment in a marine trade. But that reality is changing and changing fast both in the state capitol and around the state.” Career and technical education, and specifically Core Plus, have gained traction with NMTA members and lawmakers in a short amount of time. Scott Anderson of CSR Marine operates two boatyards in Ballard and Des Moines. He has reaped the benefits of such an education. “It was love at first sight (when I first heard about Core Plus),” said Anderson.

“I heard Dave Gering speak about offering shop classes to kids in school, and I said to myself and anyone who would listen, ‘That’s my story.’ Had I not had shop classes, I would be in prison or maybe even dead by this point,” he added. “Supporting Core Plus has become my number one cause. I’m not getting any younger and to help establish a curriculum (under the guise of Core Plus) for the future employees of CSR and the other recreational boating businesses is where I’m investing my time and money,” he said. Some of the needs in the $4 billion recreational boating industry are greater than others.

“We hear from employers all the time that they struggle to find talent,” said Harris of the NMTA, the nation’s oldest and largest marine trade association. “The problems are real, and they are two-pronged: How do we fill jobs today in the industry and how do we build a school system for the next generation of workers?” One way that NMTA, the owners of the Seattle Boat Show at the CenturyLink location, tackled this struggle was to create a job fair to coincide with the boat show. They gauged the interest of NMTA members and nonmembers.

“We were blown away by the level of interest, the amount of open positions, and the quality of the employment opportunities. On the other side of the equation, we couldn’t believe how hard it was to drive traffic to the job fair,” said Harris. At the first year’s job fair, there were 49 attendees. 150 people turned out for the 2015 job fair. “It’s hard to fill 250 openings when you only have 150 job-fair attendees.” NMTA and other groups, such as the Washington Business Alliance and the Manufacturing Industrial Council, have laid out a multifaceted plan to direct young Continued on Page 76

people toward marine trades. First, Anderson and other experts are developing a free curriculum that teachers can use on Day 1 of the school year. Boeing and NMTA have been integral partners. “Boeing has invested over $750,000 in developing curriculum, and NMTA’s early arrival provided a key piece in a gigantic puzzle,” Gering said. Core Plus and career and technical education in general rely on relevant curriculum at their foundation, but success is also predicated on several other pieces. That’s where Colleen McAleer and the Washington Business Alliance come in. McAleer has assembled a coalition that will be ready when the Legislature convenes in January 2017. “While the state legislature continues to grapple on general K-12 education funding issues over the past few years, funding for career and technical education has not kept pace. We’ve actually seen schools scale back these programs” said McAleer. “Fortunately, the dialogue

Gering does not pinpoint one specific reason for the spread of Core Plus, which has gone from two schools to more than 40 in five years around Washington. “We had a plan and stuck to it. I would speak once a quarter to a new audience, and we’ve built our campaign that way. You name the association of educators, and I’ve probably spoken to them about Core Plus.” More success might be just around the corner with the new crop of legislators and statewide office holders in power. Specifically, there will be a new school tendent Randy Dorn, who already believed superintendent and a new lay of the land in these educational opportunities.

He’s struck by how hard it is to find young people who show up on time, day in and day out, but he’s not giving up. “How can I?

year, there was over a million dollars in industry support. Boeing provided $750,000 for the written curriculum; other industry sponsors included the Manufacturing Industrial Council, Northwest Marine Trade Association, Port of Seattle, and Washington National Guard. Gering approaches the issue with a pragmatic optimism that has served him well as he works to protect and grow manufacturing in King County during his day job at the MIC. “Ten years ago, a bunch of us were sitting around the table saying, ‘Who’s going to work in industry once we retire?’” It was this conversation that set in motion 10 years of progress, but Gering realizes that their work in not done. “Now it’s time to turn to Olympia to bolster our success. We are prepared to make our case to the lawmakers that these educational opportunities are sorely needed for our young people. We can’t let them down.” It won’t be an easy sell, however, given the budget crisis Washington finds itself in. The state Supreme Court is holding the Legislature in contempt of court for not fulfilling its paramount duty in the state constitution, which is to fund the state’s education system. But maritime is growing as an advocacy effort in Olympia. The Washington Maritime Federation and the Washington Business Alliance have both adopted “career and technical education” as core priorities for the 2017 legislative session, and lawmakers are paying closer attention than ever. Most recently, the bipartisan Maritime & Manufacturing Task Force for Economic Resiliency has listed these educational opportunities as tantamount to growing the sector. Rep. Gael Tarleton (D-Seattle) says the hard work is yet to be done. “I grew up down the road from the Gloucester (Massachusetts) fishing fleet. I know first-hand what can happen to the maritime and fishing industry when not enough care and feeding are put into it,” Tarleton says. And this care and feeding surprises some. Anderson, for one, continues to struggle with the fact that the Legislature will not be doing everything it can to support career and technical education. “I about fell out of my chair when I learned that I had to put my own money into Core Plus before the state would

even consider supporting it,” he said. “Since then I’ve met with the governor and other lawmakers about this, but it’s still slow in the uptake on getting their budgets to reflect how important this issue is to simply keeping people out of jail. It makes no sense. What I have learned is that lawmakers may support us in principle but it’s their intensity that’s lacking.” When it comes to lobbying efforts, Anderson and the rest of the coalition routinely cite the average salaries of maritime employees, which is $75,000, and the average pay of a Boeing machinist, which comes in at $60,000. Compared with the average pay of a Washingtonian ($55,000), it’s easy to see that these Core-Plus-related careers are solid middle-class positions. Anderson, Tarleton, Gering, and the rest of the coalition are not anywhere near giving up selling this concept. “When I’m done being a legislator, an important part of my legacy will be what I did to help young people find their way into maritime jobs,” Tarleton said. Tarleton’s task force of nine state senators and representatives from both sides of the aisle share a common bond: their communities border Puget Sound. “Unlike so many divisive issues we deal with, career and technical education for maritime and fishing jobs is a breath of fresh air. Legislators and staff need these shared interests to keep us all moving toward solutions for our communities. It’s not about what’s good for Republicans or Democrats but what works for all Washingtonians,” she said.

As Gering brings up during his presentations, there is a national dimension to the topic. “Our country needs these kids to maintain our industrial capacity. Switzerland is nice, but we’re not Switzerland. The kids with aptitude also need to find these opportunities early - the sooner, the better. They give up significant earning potential if they wait until their 30s or 40s to get started. We can’t just give up that kind of national or personal productivity.” Ruff isn’t giving up on maritime. He is weeks into his Boeing career, but remains optimistic that down the road he will find himself back in the recreational boating field. “I will never close that door,” Ruff said. “Welding is welding, and I’m going to answer the door if and when opportunity knocks (from a maritime employer). Plus, it’s smart that so many people are united on a common theme. I can tell you that my classmates seem to struggle with the ‘what are you going to do after high school’ question. College isn’t for everyone, and for those who think college is for them probably end up after graduation asking themselves, ‘Now what?’ As for me, I know what I want to do and it looks like I’ve found something that will create a nice living for myself. Plus, I don’t have any loans to worry about.” The coalition supporting Core Plus is busy preparing for the 2017 legislative session as this story goes to print. Given how poorly Washington has funded education in the past, best exemplified by the McCleary decision that found the Legislature to be in contempt of court for not adequately funding basic education, Core Plus and related programs will remain in the news for years to come.

FINISH LINE

Rocktober on the Sound Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson As the trees change color and weather takes a turn for the cold, many boat owners find themselves buttoning up for the winter and shifting focus towards land-based activities. However, this is not the case for the sailboat racing crowd; for them October marks the beginning of the fall racing season. With an event every weekend for a month straight, many

die-hard racers block out their entire social calendar and find themselves spending more time with their legs over the side of a boat than in their own home. This autumn the racing calendar kicks off with the Foulweather Bluff yacht race hosted by Corinthian Yacht Club of Edmonds. Taking place on Saturday, October 1, the event is open to all PHRF and IRC rac-

ing yachts. Now in its 36th year, the event is a solid cornerstone of the Seattle sailing calendar. The course takes sailors from a start line off Edmonds Marina northward to the Scatchet Head buoy and then westward to the race’s namesake, Foulweather Bluff buoy. Rounding the mark, boats head back to the finish line off Edmonds Marina. This course is unique for Puget Sound races

in that it has a large amount of reaching legs, giving a strong advantage to many of the larger boats over the lightweight sport boats that traditionally dominate the windward-leeward race courses. Being the first race in the fall calendar, many top racing crews use the one-day event to blow the dust off and work in new crew members as preparation for the fast-paced short course racing in the weeks to follow. Guest moorage for racers is available Friday and Saturday evening through Edmonds Marina and, with several fantastic restaurants nearby, it’s worthwhile to show up early. The awards dinner Saturday, to be held at 1630 hours at the new Channel Marker Pub and Grill, is a short walk from the guest moorage dock. Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle hosts the Puget Sound Sailing Championships for the big boat fleet the following weekend. On October 8 and 9, a series of races takes place in the water off Shilshole Marina and Golden Gardens Park. Temporary course marks are set and maintained through each day to ensure fair racing and challenging tactics. And the event is broken into two racing areas, one to the north of Golden Gardens for the larger boats and one to the south for the smaller keel boats and one design fleets. This separation of courses works well for all, keeping the race course clear for the big boat fleet as well as keeping clean wind and giving smaller boats more appropriate length races. This year’s turnout is shaping up to nothing short of impressive. Inviting the always intense Farr 30, the constantly growing J/105, Melges 24, J/80, and the old school Moore 24s, the one design fleet presence is sure to make for a weekend of intense boat-on-boat action. On the handicap side of the regatta, fleets are expected to come out strong with entrants representing everything Seattle sailing has to offer from the TP52’s in IRC to the super competitive J/29s racing PHRF. Since many boats do not take part in the summer weekly sailing series, crews are excited to get back on the race course. After the big boats have their weekend of fun on Puget Sound, the Corinthian Yacht Club race committee shifts gears and invites the small keel boats and dinghies out on the race course. On October 15 and 16, brave


skippers and crews will don wetsuits and boots to prepare for another weekend of short course racing. The regatta is set to play host to one design dinghy fleets including the rapidly growing RS Aero, high-tech 505, and now legendary Hobie 16. Not exclusive to centerboard boats, several keel boat fleets are planning on attending, such as the J/24 fleet as well as the legendary Star. Expect fast sailing. With the committee planning between four and six races for each fleet, it’s sure to leave skippers and crews sore but smiling. Seattle Yacht Club hosts the Grand Prix Invitational Regatta to wrap up the month of sailing. The three-day event, October 21 - 23, puts all of the top handicap racing boats from the area head to head on the waters of Shilshole Bay and Puget Sound. Well attended by PHRF and IRC classes, the regatta has firmly established itself as one of the premier events on any boat’s racing calendar. A mix of short course races will have boats sailing around temporary marks set by the race committee and medium distance course, participants wills race to naviga-

tional marks throughout Puget Sound, giving sailors a mix of racing styles. This open course format challenges crews, requiring both strong starting line and short course tactics as well as navigation and tidal knowledge for the longer courses. A win at this event is sought after by skippers and takes a well set-up boat and dialed-in crew work to pull off. Awards for the event are held at the Seattle Yacht Club at 1800 hours on Sunday evening.

One of the few formal events that most sailors are invited to each year, the awards dinner is a fantastic way to finish up a month of intense racing. While it may seem that the schedule is only for the seasoned racers, that is not the case. Full calendars mean many boats become anxious to fill crew spots, and bringing an understudy along is not an issue for many skippers. It is a great opportunity to go sailing in a repeti-

tious fashion whether you are new or seasoned. Not knowing someone with a boat is no excuse to stay home. Corinthian Yacht Club is open for dinner and drinks every Friday night. This is a great opportunity to go meet the sailors and teams having a prerace get-together. See you out there!

ort Townsend, known in the days of yore as the “City of Dreams” when it was believed the town would grow into the largest port on the West Coast, has in many ways lived up to the name in a more organic-artisan, authentically salty, wood-planks-n’-brickwork kind of way. It is hard as a boater or lover of the sea not to be uplifted when the opportunity arises to visit, for the soul of the town is a rare, dare we say bespoke, mix of things we love. Victorian houses and historic buildings house hyper-local establishments and restaurants, such as the iconic and independently owned Rose Theatre that originally opened in 1907 as a vaudeville house. Central to the brick-red beating heart of Port Townsend is all things marine, and the place is a magnet for some of the best nautical craftspeople in the world. There, we said it, the world. There probably isn’t a town of this size anywhere else where you can build a Nor’easter Dory (with Chesapeake Light Craft), attend professional seamanship classes (with the U.S. Maritime Academy), build a Rowcruiser (with Northwest Maritime Center [NWMC]), enroll the kids in water-themed youth programs (NWMC, again), and build a wooden kayak (with Pygmy Boats) all within walking distance from each other in the middle of town. It’s the kind of place where the entire community takes to the streets to celebrate with live music and a craft beer in hand, such as during the iconic Wooden Boat Festival (which just enjoyed its 40th iteration). For the incoming mariner, Port Townsend is obstacle-free. The town sits on the west side of Admiralty Inlet and one can gaze at Whidbey Island’s bluffs to the east from downtown. Boats often utilize the services of a marina, such as the large, modern, and centrally located Port Townsend Boat Haven Marina, vs. anchoring off the hook, which is perfectly legal with public, dinghy-friendly beaches. The southerlies can really howl, the tides are strong, and there is reportedly poor grounding on the south side of town. If approaching from the north, you’ll be fresh from the straits of Juan de Fuca (“I-wanna-puke-a”) and will pass the Point Wilson Lighthouse on your starboard before reaching downtown proper. Mind the tides and winds as always or risk a frustrating beat in foul conditions near shipping traffic. We live in a beautiful, but often unforgiving, place.

82 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

Northwest Maritime Center How could a boater in good conscious avoid the bright yellow Northwest Maritime Center? The NWMC not only offers a staggering array of maritime classes from their headquarters, but they also are the masterminds behind the legendary Port Townsend Wooden Boast Festival and the harrowing sensation R2AK Race to Alaska. Events range from Navigator Brunches to Wooden Boat Wednesdays. Regattas, charters, and just about everything you can imagine are spearheaded by NWMC, which is part people’s yacht club, college, and church of Neptune. The NWMC is certainly a cultural fixture, home of the “cool kids” of the PNW boating scene. The best way to keep up with these folks is to check out their website to see what’s on the calendar, nwmaritime.org. The big yellow “campus” is on 431 Water Street. The Current Wooden Boat Chandlery store hours are 1000 hours to 1700 hours, seven days a week.

Point Hudson Not only is Point Hudson a navigational landmark and right next to the Point Hudson Marina and RV Park, but there are a few things worth investigating for the curious. A cluster of eateries housed in old wood buildings include the Pacific Northwest-inspired Chinese restaurant Shanghai Chinese, the Hudson Point Café, and Doc’s Marina Grill in Port Townsend and should have something for every palette. What’s more, Washington Fish and Wildlife maintains a small but visit-worthy space that often shows short educational films, features touch tanks, and has great information on the local fisheries. Want the latest news on the shellfish harvesting grounds? Look no further. To cap it all off, the east view at the end of Hudson Point is a scenic gander.

Water Street Ah, Water Street. This northeast-southwest running street is the historic waterfront’s spine that connects the Hudson Point Marina to the Ferry Terminal. It may be 2016, but musicians belting sea shanties and living off the dollars in their guitar cases are still common sights. Brickwork and historic buildings lull a person into a feeling of true peace. Boutiques and ice cream are the norm around Water Street, and charming green spaces with jungle gyms for the little ones and benches for grandma and grandpa speckle the route. If you find yourself in Port Townsend, we reckon you’ll be on or near Water Street quite often during your visit. Without Water, the town would surely be a shadow of itself.

The Old Guard Fort Worden State Park is Port Townsend community’s green roaming space, the great lawn as it were. Situated on the northeast corner of town, the historic gathering space is a virtual menagerie of all things Port Townsend. Winding roads and paths take visitors past the Port Townsend Marine Science Center, a good stop for the marine science lovers among us. The wonderfully preserved military buildings have been mostly co-opted by artists these days, among them the Madrona MindBody Institute that teaches yoga and soul motion dance. The old batteries like Battery Ash and Battery Kinzie keep a weathered, guarded eye to the sea and are fun to explore. The Point Wilson Lighthouse and Puget Sound Coast Artillery Museum are a few of the historic attractions in the park. There’s a lot going on here, check out the website at fortworden.org.

Celebrate! Port Townsend is a lively place. Where else hosts the Wooden Boat Festival, a Military Vehicle Show, the Jefferson County Farm Tour, an annual film festival, the Kinetic Sculpture Festival, and more? There really is no way to anticipate the next Port Townsend event other than to keep a pulse on the community and get over there when something strikes your interest. The website enjoypt.com, the official tourism site for Port Townsend, is a great resource.

There aren’t a ton of mooring options in Port Townsend, but there should be a spot for you somewhere. The go-to fuel dock is at The Fish’n Hole at the Boat Haven Marina and has ethanol-free unleaded gas and regular @pacificmarine.org diesel. One can moor off the hook, but be wary of rough conditions and poor grounding.

If you don’t mind navigating the uphill stairs that connect Taylor Street to Jefferson Street, the stroll to Uptown is a Port Townsend must. One passes the historic Fire Bell Tower, and what must surely be the best view of town and Admiralty Inlet, while en route to the off-the-beaten-path business district. Churches built in the old style, like St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, bring an inviting austerity to the neighborhood’s scenery. The cluster of businesses on Lawrence Street includes Petals Flower Shop and the Uptown Theatre. Restaurants like Sweet Laurette Café & Bistro and Lanza’s Ristorante, as well as the Uptown Pub, give the visitor some flavor to savor as they soak in the quieter scene. Give it a visit if you have time, Uptown is certainly worth it.

Uptown

Gastronomy You’d be hard pressed to eat poorly in Port Townsend, and a good eatery is almost always a literal stone’s throw away. You like pizza? Hillbottom Pie (215 Tyler St.) and Water Pizza (951 Water St.) are for you. Craving food from the Far East? Everyone seems to love Khu Larb Thai (225 Adams St.) and Hanazono Asian Noodle (225 Taylor St.). The American diner scene is well represented with places like Dogs-a-Foot (630 1/2 Water St.) or Nifty Fifty’s (817 Water St.). The Silverwater Café’s Mediterranean and Asian influenced food is always popular, so get a reservation (237 Taylor St.). There are also a whopping three different weekly farmer’s markets in Port Townsend, all winners: - Saturday, Tyler St., Uptown Port Townsend, 0900 hours to 1400 hours, April 2 to December 17. - Sunday, Chimacum Corner Farmstand, 1000 hours to 1400 hours, June 5 to October 30. - Wednesday, Polk St., Uptown Port Townsend, 1400 hours to 1800 hours, June 15 to September 14. We huffed it up the stairs to Uptown for a meal at Lanza’s Ristorante (1020 Lawrence Street), and we encourage everyone to do the same. The Spaghetti Puttanesca ($16.50) and Tortellini Carl Vella ($18.50) were simply out of this world, especially when paired with a bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir. The classy, modest space was intimate without being claustrophobic, and there was even a live piano player. If you’ve got a heart, you’ll leave a few bucks in his tip jar. If you’re taking a first date here, you’re already learned far beyond the need for advice.

DOUG KRUGER OF KRUGER & SONS PROPELLERS

“ The test of the machine is the satisfaction it gives you. There isn’t any other test. If the machine produces tranquility it’s right. If it disturbs you it’s wrong until either the machine or your mind is changed.” —Robert M. Pirsig, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance

KRUGER & SONS PROPELLER Kruger and Sons Propeller has been in operation since 1986 and are now worldwide with projects from Hawaii to Alaska, Russia to Ukraine, and more. They make props for both commercial and pleasure craft clients, and stock one of the largest inventories in the country. They do just about anything related to props, but high-speed, big yachts are their forte. They work from their shop at 4463 26th Ave W., Seattle, Washington 98199. You can look them up at krugerpropeller.com or call them at 206-283-7707. “People come to us saying, ‘I’ve been everywhere and nobody can fix my propeller.’ We respond, ‘We’ll see you Friday.’” – Kruger and Sons Team

84 NORTHWEST YACHTING // OCTOBER 2016

T

he quiet hum of the prop and gentle hiss of one’s wake on a calm day are just parts of living the dream on the water. Many of us, perhaps even most of us, take our propellers for granted. The designs of most props appear elegantly simple and rather foolproof. New props come in boxes and we bolt them on the shaft without too much thought, or we assume the prop on the newly purchased used boat is just fine. We’re getting from point A to B and having fun, aren’t we? Isn’t that good enough? No, it isn’t. The truth of the matter is that when it comes to propellers, anything shy of a custom adjustment is going to cost you in wasted fuel and overexerted engines. Every boat needs her propeller to reach her full efficiency, which is a relatively straightforward process that could improve your boating experience by leaps and bounds. A properly working propeller should operate quietly, and a roaring prop is often the sign of something wrong. Additionally,

while many boaters will chalk up some vibration as normal, often shaking is a sign that something is wrong with the propeller blades. The money saved in terms of fuel economy is no laughing matter, and those dollars and cents saved per nautical mile add up pretty quickly over an active season. To get the real insider perspective, we talk to Seattle-based propeller masters Doug Kruger and team of Kruger and Sons Propeller. Q: So I’ve bought a boat and the propeller seems to be working fine. That’s good enough, right? I think it’s important for people to realize the value of the propeller related to everything else aboard the boat: engine temperature, load, RPM’s, speed, etc. It all points back to the propeller, if the propeller isn’t tuned properly, you basically have a three-legged dog hopping around on the water inefficiently, burning more fuel than necessary. You can’t just buy a prop off the internet or from a buddy, put it on the boat, and expect everything to be perfect. Propellers are mass produced and generally inaccurate from the factory. It’s important to have specialists like us go through your propeller to check and adjust the pitch, track, and balance to insure accuracy and performance. Q: What does tolerance mean? Tolerance is a measure of consistency from blade to blade in terms of pitch, track, and balance. The tighter the tolerance, the better. All blades should be completely matched, but 90% of the time there are inconsistencies from the factory.

Your propeller is custom to your boat. You almost always need some adjustments for the weight of your boat, the shape of your hull, etc. There’s more to it than pulling the propeller out of the box, bolting it onto the shaft, and away we go. I’d say the biggest waste in efficiency arises when the prop isn’t pitched properly. Q: So variation between blades is one of the worst things? Yes, they need to be matched or you will feel a vibration. Vibrations cause unnecessary wear and tear on the running gear. Q: Can’t I just take a peek at the prop and look for any signs of damage? One of the most important things to know is that one cannot just look at a propeller and tell if it’s ok. We can’t even just look at it and say if it is ok. It’s important to haul the boat, take off the props, and have them checked for pitch, track, and balance. If there’s nothing wrong with the propeller, we recommend a clean and balance service at minimal cost. A propeller should be cleaned and balanced every couple of years. We check out props for free, so you might as well just bring in the prop for us to look at when you haul-out every year or two. A propeller, like a hull is inefficient when covered with barnacles and growth. Giving it a clean and balance is a good idea. With proper maintenance a propeller can last a lifetime. We use MRI computer-aided technology, and a proprietary pitch table to provide accurate before and after reports for the


customer. The initial report shows the condition your propeller was in when it arrived and the final report shows the condition it’s in when you pick it up. Keep the final reports onboard in case you lose a propeller or damage one beyond repair in the middle of a trip. They include important data like diameter, rotation, pitch, material, shaft diameter; the information we need to get you a new prop. Treat your props like your tires. You rotate your tires, you take care of them so they are balanced and you get maximum efficiency. Propellers are the same way, get them cleaned and balanced. Q: How much fuel economy is really on the line? We recently sold a big propeller to one of our longtime customers, a commercial fisherman out of Fisherman’s Terminal. After eight years of us suggesting that he buy a new propeller, he finally sprang for one of our properly tuned, high efficiency propeller designs. He departed Seattle for Juneau (like he always does) and called us to say that his fuel savings alone just paid for his $8,000 propeller. He knows how much fuel he burns on that trip, but it can be hard

for recreational boaters who are always going on different, shorter trips to really appreciate the savings. If the propellers aren’t done right, boaters are just throwing fuel overboard. It’s a big deal. Q: Do you have any other tips? Buyers beware on used boats. Make sure that the propeller is in good working condition, more importantly make sure that it’s the right size propeller for the boat. We’ve seen guys buy a used boat, haul it up, and the propeller is rotten or badly damaged. Take the boat out on a sea trial and make sure that it is achieving max RPM at wide open throttle. Spare props are really important; it’s something every boater should have. You wouldn’t drive across the country without a spare tire, would you? The larger yachts (over 50 feet) are generally running custom five-blade propellers which are made to order, not in stock. Lead time on a custom order is 8-14 weeks depending on the manufacturer. That could be your whole summer! Chances are we have your propeller in stock if it’s for a smaller boat. However it’s still a good idea to have spares on board.

Terms: Tolerance: The consistency of parameter measurements between all blades of the propeller. Coast guard spec is Class 1. All propellers that leave Kruger & Sons are balanced and finished within Class 1 tolerance. Pitch: The angle of the blade. A higher pitch is moving more water than a low pitch per revolution. Increasing the pitch increases the load on the engine, decreasing the pitch decreases the load on the engine. Balance: The state of equilibrium in which centrifugal forces due to rotating mass do not produce force on the shaft, i.e. all blades weigh the same. A properly balanced propeller reduces vibration.

Materials: Bronze: Relatively soft material suited for lower horsepower applications that is economical and abundant. Reacts negatively with aluminum hulls. NiBrAl or Nickel, Bronze, Aluminum alloy: A strong durable material suited for high horsepower applications. NiBrAI is easily rebuilt even with a fair amount of damage and one the best at combating the corroding effects of electrolysis. Does not react negatively with aluminum hulls. Stainless Steel: Tough, rigid material for props destined for hard work, perhaps in a commercial fishery or out in the Bearing Sea. Commonly found on commercial crab boats. Does not react negatively with aluminum hulls.

Have a question? Ask! Do you have a question for the experts? Send us your questions about anything to norris@nwyachting.com and we’ll hunt down the industry professionals to answer them. Why does my boat start to shake when I increase the RPM when it didn’t before? What anchor setup should I use when the tide is roaring one way and the wind howling the other? What time of year should I make my transit from Washington to Hawaii? What is the meaning of life, Northwest Yachting!? Ask and we'll do our best.

After the end of World War II, the Parkers continued to operate her as an excursion vessel all around Puget Sound. From 1954, Virginia V was owned and run during the summer by Puget Sound Excursion Lines. In 1968 a group of steamboat enthusiasts formed the Northwest Steamship Company and raised the funds to buy the little ship. She was placed on the National Registry in 1973, but despite her recognition, it was increasingly difficult to maintain her as a commercial venture. In 1976, the non-profit Steamer Virginia V Foundation was formed to preserve this historic vessel. The Foundation officially acquired her on September 30, 1980, for $127,000. Starting in 1996, the Virginia V was given a $6.5 million stem-to-stern restoration project that lasted six years. She sat in the Pacific Fishermen Yard in Ballard, one of the few yards in the Pacific Northwest that can still perform repairs on large wooden vessels. It took a couple of years while all the planking below the waterline was replaced with top quality fir up to 50-foot long.

Pets on Boats

“Rollover? Are you talking about me or the boat?!”

Readers, meet Cinco, our pet for this month. Cinco is a rescue who was adopted from a shelter in 2012 on Black Friday. His origins are unknown, so his people affectionately refer to him as a “Ballardian Wolfhound” named in honor of where he lives. Cinco is an adventurer who is ready for anything on the water, whether we’re talking about powerboats, canoes, kayaks, and more. 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 norris@nwyachting.com. We collect images and captions and our staff selects the best submission. Each monthly winners will have the honor of seeing their pet photo and caption run in an upcoming issue of the magazine, and we will also set them up with a Northwest Yachting care package. We’re looking for the best combination of image and words, so grab your favorite four-legged (or winged) crewmember, cast off the docking lines, and get creative with your camera and notepad.

Imagine NOT having the hassle of taking your fenders ON and OFF every time you go in and out of your slip. Are you tired of having your fenders constantly riding up on the docks and getting your hull marked up or worse? Paying for expensive hull rub-outs or repairs? Tired of having your spouse or friends jumping off a moving boat onto a shaky dock? Solo your vessel? Large Boat—small slip? We have great news for you! HMS is now manufacturing a new style of Dock Bumper. These new NON-MARRING bumpers mount on your dock, making hassling with fenders a thing of the past. Not only is the new style of bumper extremely durable, it is also removable so you can take it with you if you move. Now available in three mounting formats to help protect your investment. For more information, visit our website, or call for a FREE price quote.
