September: The Best Kept Secret

September in the Pacific Northwest is my favorite month of the year as a boater, Seattle resident, and Portland, Oregon, native. The rains have yet to set in properly and the cruising weather is generally fair, yet it’s sweater and hot Norris Comer cider time when the sun gets low. The tourist crowd thins and the islands calm with a surplus of available slips. Sailing events, like the Pacific International Ton Championships in Bellingham (aka PITCH) and the Six Metre World Cup hosted by the Vancouver Yacht Club, keep the summer on-the-water spirit strong, yet the Autumn Equinox of September 22 and the lengthening night approaches. The salmon are still running, yet the apples start to show on the trees. September: the best of both summer and fall? Like the duality of summer and fall, this issue has both nourishment for the mind and soul. On the brainier side of the spectrum we have an feature interview with Washington Governor Jay Inslee, A Sailor in Office (page 76), in which Peter Schrappen highlights the governor’s boating policy record, and a feature by yours truly taking a magnifying glass to the upcoming Lake Union Boats Afloat Show that’s threatened by land development (Afloat For Now, page 84). Captain Chris Couch’s story about

his favorite Ed Monk Jr. designs, The Gold Standard (page 70), and Greg Van Belle’s guide to boating with a bike aboard in the San Juan Islands (Island Wheels, page 90) appeal to the let’s-go spirit. September not only offers the best of summer and fall, but “industry season” really starts to get going. With events like the Lake Union Boat Show (September 14 to 17) and the National Marine Electronics Association Expo in Bellevue (September 26 to 28), there’s plenty to do in September for both exhibitors and visitors. We plan to get out there as much as possible and take you with us with our new Instagram account! Check out our account at @NorthwestYachting and tag us with #northwestyachting when out on the water. We can’t wait to see and share what’s out there, as well as practice our on-the-water selfies. This issue also features our inaugural Spyglass picture gallery (on page 109). See what adventures we’ve been up to and feel free to contribute by sending us pictures to our Facebook page (see URL below), tagging us on Instagram with #northwestyachting, and/or sending them to We look forward to sharing your adventures, whether it be at an industry event, a rendezvous, or just a day on Pacific Northwest waters. Squeeze this September for all it’s worth! I sure plan to.

Port Townsend's Wooden Boat Festival Returns By Matilda Henry

Billed as “the most education-packed and beautifully located wooden boat event in the world,” the 41st Wooden Boat Festival happens September 8 through 10, 2017 in Port Townsend, Washington. This popular mariner’s extravaganza has long been the Northwest’s showpiece event for nautical culture and brings together over 300 boats along with experts and fans of all ages. Dozens of indoor and outdoor presentations and demonstrations take place on seven stages (all day, every day!), plus live music, and dancing, arts and crafts, food and drink, races, and even a boatbuilding challenge. According to Festival Director Barb Trailer, this year brings even more exciting ways to get out on the water. In addition to popular longboat rides, participants can sign up to hop aboard the Martha J motor launch, sail Thunderbird sailboats, ride the historic schooners Adventuress and Zodiac, and paddle kayaks and paddleboards. You can even check out a Bumblebee sailboat

for sailors under age five (yes, preschoolers can sail, too!). If you prefer to boat on land, there’s a walk-in paddleboard demo tank right in the middle of the event grounds. In addition to races and sail-by exhibitions in Port Townsend Bay, there are over 158 wooden boats on display within Point Hudson marina. Owners often welcome visitors aboard. Want to learn how to build a ship in a bottle? Try your hand at oceanography with actual research instruments? Hear amazing stories from accomplished adventurers like Lin Pardey, Howard Rice, and many more? Find out how to caulk, take care of your electrical system, and how to get your Captain’s License? Tour the Virginia V ferry and listen to the powerful historic steam engine and whistle? You will find almost endless pursuits indoors and out, afloat and ashore. Popular talks and excursions fill up quickly, so consult the festival schedule to plan your day.

The Wooden Boat Festival features in-water classic vessels (left) and live how-to workshops (right).


The Wooden Boat Festival is kid-friendly—families can build wooden boats, ride a carousel, fish paint a T-shirt, watch a play, sail a model sailboat, try the craft booth, or examine sea creatures with the help of Port Townsend Marine Science Center docents. Kids can dress like pirates and join in Sunday’s Treasure Hunt! Adult tickets to the Festival include access to all Festival boats; all daytime presentations and demonstrations, exhibitors, music performances, kid’s activities, and food vendors. Single-day tickets are available online and at the gate for $20.00, with discounts for seniors, students, and active military. Multi-day passes are just $40.00 and offer similar discounts. Children under 12 get in free. No dogs are allowed, except service dogs. Tickets to Friday’s evening event, the Race to Alaska (R2AK) Blazer Party, are $30.00; revel with R2AK adventurers and hear tales of valor and woe from Port Townsend’s newest motorless race. Join the Northwest Maritime Center online or at the gate and get free tickets to the Festival. Complete printed event packets are available about two weeks prior to the Festival— pick up a copy at the NWMC Chandlery. The 41st Wooden Boat Festival takes place at the Northwest Maritime Center, 431 Water Street, Port Townsend, WA, and throughout the grounds of Point Hudson Marina. Plan your visit and save time by purchasing tickets and checking out event announcements at nwmaritime. org/wooden-boat-festival.

Local Sailors Win Big in Japan Pacific Northwest-based sailors Jonathan and Libby Johnson McKee won the Tasar World Championship 2017 in Gamagori, Japan held August 1 to 6, 2017. According to the Tasar WorldBlack Championship website,, the last day of the event was windless and the final two of 13 races were cut. The McKees were then awarded the win after taking the total 11 races into account. “We are really happy. We were tired, but this is more than expected,” said Jonathan. The married couple have been sailing Tasars together for years.

Shaw Island Classic, 47 And Healthy By Peg Gerlock

The Shaw Island Classic hosted sailboats of many different classes.

The 47th annual Shaw Island Classic sailboat race, sponsored by the San Juan Island Yacht Club, was held on Saturday, August 12. After weeks of haze and smoke from the B.C. fires lingering over the islands with no wind, a nearperfect window of racing op-

portunity opened Saturday. The relief came from a front moving in, which brought cool marine air and southerly winds blowing 10 to 13 knots, gusting to 17. Beginning in Friday Harbor at noon, 40 boats dashed over the start line with most of the fleet choosing the counter-clockwise route. “There were a lot of big rigs towering over us this year, so we were a little late on the start,” said Ben Colwell on his Formula 18 multihull, Rum Line. “We went counter-clockwise and finally caught the breeze after about 30 seconds, and then the race was on! We had to jibe a lot to keep the wind Continued on Page 18

Channel, but with our light wind settings it was a struggle to keep the boat flat and under control.” Meanwhile, spinnakers bloomed on the San Juan Channel as they filled with a southwest wind for boats on the clockwise route. An ebb tide helped to carry these racers through the notoriously difficult Wasp Passage between Shaw and Orcas islands. Skippers in either direction found wind and nearly the entire fleet finished before 1700 hours. Colwell on Rum Line, a perennial winner, led the fleet with the fastest elapsed time at 02:20:33, also placing first on corrected time. It was a tight race, according to Jim Corenman, principal race officer. “Rum Line, again won fastest elapsed time, but his first on corrected time was only ten seconds ahead of Challenge, the 6 Meter skippered by Michael Durland that won PHRF-B,” he said. “Three other class winners were within a few minutes of first overall on corrected time.” Madrona, a custom boat skippered by Carl Buchan that won PHRF-A, nearly beat Rum Line across the finish before sailing into a hole off Brown Island, according to Colwell. Racers and guests enjoyed a hearty lasagna dinner prepared by the San Juan Island Yacht Club’s First Mates followed by the awards ceremony, where several racers were recognized for other contributions. Wally Lum, who skippered Marquita in the very first Shaw and has competed in every one of the 47 races since was aboard Challenge again this year. Shawn Dougherty, skipper of Hamachi, had a multi-generation crew. “We are working hard to link the fourth generation of family racers to the first generation,” he said. “Bud and Florence Horton, first generation, helped found the Shaw Island race and donated the trophy for first place overall on corrected time.” Prizes were awarded in all divisions (race results are detailed on Page 16). Other than fastest elapsed time, all awards are based on corrected time, adjusted for time-on-time based on PHRF or committee assigned ratings.

Staying Fire Safe on the Water By Greg Van Belle

On Saturday, July 8, when many of us were out on the water enjoying a beautiful summer afternoon, a boat caught fire after experiencing mechanical problems while

pulling to its slip at the Port of Everett. Five boats burned and three sank before the blaze could be contained by the Port and the Everett Fire Department. Thank-

fully no one was seriously injured. Boat and marina fires are rare, but incidents like this one offer an excellent opportunity to do a safety check and to create an emergency

The recent fire at the Port of Everett was a dramatic reminder for all boaters to freshen up on fire safety. preparedness plan onboard your own boat. Electrical systems are often the initial cause of fires onboard. A shorted wire or an improperly installed AC electrical system can cause enough spark to trigger a fire, especially if there is fuel nearby. We tend to think of DC power as safer than its AC cousin, but 12 volt wires carry enough current to create sparks. Regularly inspect all DC and AC electrical systems. Replace worn wires and make sure all terminals are properly fastened. If you are not handy with such things, hiring a marine electrician is cheap insurance against a fire or explosion onboard. Fuel systems should be inspected at least once a year, and more often for boats that see heavy use. Check tanks for leaks and fuel lines for cracking, abrasion, and wear. A bilge full of gasoline fumes warrants some serious investigation, as a spark from a starter or a shorted wire can ignite concentrated gas fumes. If your boat uses gasoline, make sure you can vent all enclosed spaces to the open air. Don’t store portable fuel tanks below decks or in lockers without proper ventilation. Propane is by far the most popular cooking and heating fuel on recreational vessels, but nothing is more explosive and dangerous onboard. Propane gas is heavier than air, and any leak will settle in the lowest reaches of the boat, just waiting for a spark. Propane tanks and canisters, even the popular disposable bottles, should be stored above decks or in a locker designed specifically to vent overboard. All fittings should be checked regularly, and Continued on Page 22

Locate them in plain view, near obvious potential sources of fire like the galley or engine compartment. Consider keeping a fire extinguisher in each cabin onboard in case someone has to escape their sleeping quarters in a fire. Place one within reach of the helm if possible. Finally, consider having a vessel safety check performed. The Coast Guard Auxiliary and United States Power Squadrons perform free vessel safety checks at marinas across the country.

Passage to Juneau: A Sea and Its Meanings By Greg Van Belle

This book literally hit me on the head. I was rooting around onboard, looking for a box full of electrical connectors I knew I had somewhere, when I knocked my copy of Passage to Juneau: A Sea and its Meanings off the shelf and onto my head. First published in 1999, this particular paperback copy of Jonathan Raban’s ode to the Pacific Northwest has been with me onboard three different boats since I first picked up a copy sometime in the early 2000s. Given my inability to find the parts I needed to finish the wiring project I just started, I grabbed the book, settled in on the galley settee, Jonathan Raban

and started one more time on Raban’s solo adventure north to Ketchikan from his slip in Ballard. If this were just a narrative tale about a middle-aged man’s decision to cast off the docklines and head north through the Inside Passage it would likely be a fine book to read once. Passage to Juneau, however, is only about the sailing trip in as much as the cabin of Raban’s 35-foot ketch provides the stage from which he delves into the social, cultural, political, and artistic history of the Inside Passage. From a nautical point of view, this book is a perfect companion to cruising the Salish Sea. Raban’s course through Puget Sound, the San Juan and Gulf Islands, and into the remote reaches of the British Columbia coastline is easy to follow on a chart. Those with experience cruising these

Eagle Harbor Marina

waters will recognize the passes, islands, and harbors. We know the feeling of battling a 5-knot current in a 6-knot boat. On that measure alone this book is worth the read. But it’s the literary tributaries Raban takes us down than make this book what it is. Fascinated by tribal history, early explorers, company logging towns, and the literature of them all, the author dives deep into what he believes makes the Salish Sea and the Inside Passage so special. It’s a messy waterway, full of navigational hazards, unimaginable beauty, and potential dead ends. As he ponders the complicated history that surrounds him, he turns to his vast onboard library for hints, if not answers. For avid readers, Passage to Juneau serves as an invitation to find and read the tomes Raban had onboard his vessel Penelope. Underpinning all of the musings on Captain Vancouver, suburbia, frontier life, and actually

sailing from time to time is the reason for the journey in the first place. It may seem a cliché for a middle-aged man with a young daughter at home to set off on an adventure to find himself, but in the end that is what Raban is doing. Like many people before him, he traveled with some manner of illusion that the sea would provide him answers and that his voyage would provide him clarity on his life on dry ground. But the sea doesn’t care about him, or me, or you. If it provides answers it is only because being alone on a boat in strange waters gives one time to think and reflect. Still, this book will always have a place onboard my boat. I revisit it often, and it serves its purpose of motivating my cruising dreams, pushing me into reading classics I have ignored since college, and forcing me into my own reflective space.

Eclipse Viewing Through Maritime Fog By Norris Comer

I, like millions of people from around the world, travelled to the totality path of the recent solar eclipse that made landfall on the Oregon Coast at approximately 10:15 hours on August 21, 2017. Although foggy, Fishing Rock Park in Depoe Bay – the center point of the totality path and my observation post – served as a locally unique opportunity to view the natural phenomenon that left many, including myself, in awe. As the clock ticked closer to eclipse time and the fog refused to dissipate, there were many nailbiting moments of worry where I thought I’d be out of luck. Turns out, foggy viewing through the “marine layer” has some benefits that I had not appreciated previousily. The biggest pro to viewing the eclipse through the fog was the natural filter effect that the fog bank provided. I only needed a

pair of good sunglasses to safely view the entire eclipse process, from partial procession of the moon to totality. Pictures were also easier to snap, as I only needed to adjust shutter speed as needed with the waxing and waning light and point my 300 mm lens at the sun. The biggest downside was that the corona, that key moment of totality, was difficult to observe in the murk. Rather, the entire sun

and moon – and the surrounding environment in general – was plunged into a nighttime-level darkness. Temperatures dropped, and while nearby less foggy locations reported a temperature drop of only a few degrees, I can anecdotally state that it felt much more dramatic in the fog, and condensation was quick to form on my hair and beard. And no, for those curious, Cthulu did not make an appearance.

Scenic, soggy Oregon was gray, but light enough.

Classic Workboat Show Comes to Lake Union The fifth annual Classic Workboat Show is scheduled for September 30 to October 1 at Lake Union Park and the fleet is gathering. Aimed squarely at those of us with an affinity for tugboats, classic commercial fishing boats, and research vessels, this show highlights both historic and contemporary working vessels from around the Puget Sound area. Meeting the real maritime professionals who captain and crew the vessels and experiencing engine and mechanical demonstrations were highlights from last year. Additionally, in honor of National Fire Day (Sunday October 9), a fireboat is to make an ap-

within easy striking distance of Seattle’s other attractions. The best part? Admission is free! Show hours have not been posted online at the time of this writing, but last year the show ran from 1000 hours to 1800 hours. Feel free to direct questions to the organizers at

pearance. Fire trucks and other firefighter-related activities are said to be taking place at the nearby Museum of History and Industry as well. Visitors also have access to a beer garden, live music, food trucks, souvenir vendors, and more. Lake Union Park has plenty of open lawn space and is located

Firstly, we’d like to correct a picture error with regards to a write-up of the Bracewell 41 yacht in our August, 2017 (page 40). Waterline Boats, the listed broker, sells the newer Chinese-built models. The pictures we published were of an older Canadian-built hull. We have corrected the error on our digital edition. Below are images of the newer build that represents more what Waterline Boats is selling. We apologize for any cross-Pacific confusion this has caused.

Haida Headache Secondly, we’d like to straighten out a caption error in Elsie Hulsizer’s feature, Haida Gwaii: A Remote and Spectacular Cruising Grounds. On page 78, there is reference to Seymour Inlet, which is far from Haida Gwaii. Instead, the image is that of a headland in Laskeek Bay on Moresby Island. Hulsizer offers this correct caption: "Afternoon fog swirls around a headland in Laskeek Bay on Moresby Island's east coast. Frequent fog helps keep Haida Gwaii green." This error was the result of our staff and has been corrected on our digital edition. Thank you, Elsie, for keeping us honest.

Bellingham Seafeast The second annual Bellingham Seafeast is set for September 22 to 23 on Bellingham Bay, much to the joy of lovers of Pacific Northwest seafood and coastal culture. Last year’s inaugural crowd of over 6,000 must’ve made a lasting impression on local organizers because there’s plenty of excitement around the upcoming event. Seafeast is essentially a celebration of all thing seafood, from the flavors of the food to the people who made the meal possible. The FisherPoets, a group of performing commercial fisherfolk, kicks off the itinerary on Friday in downtown Bellingham. The festival on

Saturday the 23rd will be held at various sites donated by the Port of Bellingham in Zuanich Point Park and on specified docks. Among the many offerings are “Meet Your Fisher” activities and competitions, dock tours, fishers’ skill-set demonstrations, live entertainment, and of course, seafood. A highlight from last year that will be continued is a reenacted U.S. Coast Guard helicopter rescue at sea and visiting Coast Guard cutter. There’s simply too many activities and flavors to list in their entirety. Check out for the full details. Admission is free.

Fraser Yachts Turns 70

Raphael Sauleau

Originally founded in 1947 by David Fraser in Newport Beach, California, Fraser Yachts is now celebrating its 70th anniversary. The company has grown from its humble roots into one of the world’s leading superyacht services company offering brokerage, charter, management, new construction, and crew services to clients around the world. To mark the big birthday, the company updated its brand image and launched a new Fraser website. “The last brand update was carried out nearly 10 years ago, and we felt that it was time to review our brand and look at how we can update it to take the company forward,” said CEO Raphael

Sauleau in a recent press release that hinted at more anniversary announcements to come. Branding is not all that’s new at Fraser, for the company also announced a partnership with Plastic Oceans Foundation, a charity dedicated to educating people on how to change their daily habits to reduce plastic waste in the ocean, earlier this year.

“We are always looking for ways to protect the environment and give back to the oceans that we make our livelihood from; we want to make sure that the oceans remain a beautiful place for many people to enjoy for future generations,” said Sauleau. The Foundation has notably produced an award-winning film A Plastic Ocean on the topic of plastic pollution in the ocean. You can watch the trailer or request an online screening at

Fraser's partnership with the Plastic Oceans Foundation will help keep theocean clean of plastic - a problem illustrated in the foundation's film A Plastic Ocean.

ArrowCat Marine Moves South

By Roger McAfee

An Everett high-speed power catamaran builder, Arrowcat Marine, is moving its operation to Florida. Coastal Marine, the parent company of ArrowCat Marine, is combining its operation with Endeavour Catamaran Corporation located in St. Petersburg/ Clearwater. Most of ArrowCat’s hulls have been built in China but all engineering, planning, development, and finishing was done in Everett.


Rob Harty, Coastal’s president, said rather than expand his operation overseas he chose to merge with Endeavour. “Florida has, for years, had a pool of well-qualified, experienced, and talented boat builders. We are bringing our building back to the U.S.” Harty went on to say it was the right time, and Florida was the right place for Coastal to expand.

ArrowCat was the first builder in the under 30-foot category to complete the Pacific Yachting Pacific Challenge, a non-stop, 650-mile circumnavigation of Vancouver Island with only one fuel stop allowed in that category. The new, combined operations is now known as the Endeavour Corporation, but in 2018 will become known as American Yacht and Custom. The St. Petersburg operation currently has

a boatyard, marina, and a 60,000 square-foot service and manufacturing building. Endeavour starting building mono-hull sailboats in Florida in 1974, but switched to power displacement cats in 1995. The combined operation will make Endeavour the largest catamaran builder in the U.S., Harty said.

Wright Yachts Welcomes Scott Wallingford Yacht broker Scott Wallingford has joined with Wright Yachts of Shilshole Bay Marina. Wallingford started his love affair with all things water when he was a kid as an eager deckhand in California and water sports fanatic in eastern Washington. He has also worked as a vessel mechanic repairing small watercraft since his relocation to Seattle. Now a professional yacht brok e r , Wa l l ingford has studied with Scott Wallingford manufacturer Beneteau in France and is a certified American Sailing Instructor. “Scott has done a great job hitting the ground running,” says Rob Wright, founder of the company. “In the first month alone C he took a trip to Trinidad to oversee a critical sea trial and survey,Mflew to southern California to manage the decommissioning of a sailboat Y in preparation for transport to Washington, and helped close a CM Lagoon 420.” “At Wright Yachts, I feel I am MY best representing the community of sailors and boaters who are CY seeking professional representation and support with regards to selling their beloved vessels CMY that other offices may not,” says Wallingford. “Being a yachtKbroker in the Pacific Northwest is an incredible occupation. I spend every day learning about new and used boats alike, sailing the waters weekly, and building relationships with other like-minded salties. I am always learning and try to keep a close ear to the community, boat manufactures, marketing strategies, industry changes, and new developments.” Wright Yacht Sales specializes in pre-owned motoryachts and sailboats.

HIN Hiccup

Kudos for the Captain

Happy Readers

Dear Peter Schrappen, Can you please clarify if a new HIN assigned, and installed per the USCG instructions, can it subsequently be renewed online? I have installed new HIN plates but couldn't get a definite answer on this. Thanks, John

Hi Skip, Surely did enjoy the article you wrote in the August issue of Northwest Yachting. You really did a great job of getting your point across, subtle and yet to the point of distinguishing between the casual boater and those who truly love boating and being at one with the water, the boat, and all aspects of the lifestyle… …One of the great benefits of your class (Flagship Maritime) is how much more aware I am in regard to other boaters. Seems that BEING THE CAPTAIN many people really are not aware of the environment in which they operate; lots of rules of the road, encroachments, discourteousness, lack of boat handling capability, etc. So - thanks! For having a great captain’s program - professional, well-taught, and well presented - AND, thanks for writing that article. I believe you will reach some (not all) people who will see the value, and subscribe to the philosophy you described. Hope you and Jan are having a great summer, Ron

Greetings to Norris and Michelle, Thanks again for sending May issues in such good order. I've sent them to family members in FL, TN, and MD. What a pleasant surprise to find the August issue in my mailbox. Of particular interest is the orca material as Gordon (my husband) mentions seeing them. One awesome focus of Sound Experience/ Schooner Adventuress is educating participants about the Puget Sound and Salish Sea and protecting the world's water ways and creatures that live there. I scanned June / July issues hoping to see something about Ballard Locks 100th anniversary events. Print was a bit small so if there was anything, I missed it. Best wishes, Margaret

Peter Schrappen: Yes. If a new HIN has been assigned by the department, it can be renewed online (assuming there is nothing else that would preclude this capability such as a fraud or stolen indicator on record).

As a boating instructor and lifelong mariner, I’ve grown to see the voyage to becoming captain is as much about cultivating a philosophy as it is about logging a certain number of miles or passing exams. Being Captain is less about receiving a license and more about becoming one with oneself, others, and nature. In my efforts to categorize the


different elements of becoming captain, I turn to metaphor: bricks versus mortar. My use of the term “bricks” refers to the thousands of physical details that go into boating. Bricks refers to the “to do” or “to get” list that’s never fully done, the checklist that’s always growing, and frankly, the focus of most boaters. This is not where I want to take this dialogue.

Skip Anderson: Many thanks for your comments, Ron. It was sure a pleasure to have you join us for training, especially as receptive to the coursework as you were and as perceptive as you were when contributing to the dialogue. Re: the article, my bet is that many boaters will remain focused solely on “catching that fish” or “winning that race” or even “doesn’t my boat look great?”, until soon enough. Father Time will scold them and they’ll wish they could regain what OptiKid had. I know that’s exactly how I want to bow out of this life … as OptiKid, full of wonderment and untarnished passion for the moment. Go enjoy, Ron!

Approach 1: The Leap of Faith

Some boaters “wing it” every time they get underway, counting on pure luck to serve them well time after time. The problem with that approach is that the Laws of Probability invariably catch up with them eventually, typically at the worst time, in the worst place, and usually in the worst way.

Approach 2: A method to your madness

Imagine loving your avocation so much you delve deeply into every aspect that bears directly on your enjoyment of the sport. This approach will not only create a safer environment in which to operate, for yourself and for other boats/ boaters around you, but also vastly improve your experience both on the water and alongside the dock. Let’s compare these two approaches thematically: 1. Approach 1: “Are you kidding? I don’t need training.” Approach 2: “Hey, perhaps I’ll learn something I can really use!” 2. Approach 1: “I pay my mechanic to handle that.” Approach 2: “Please show me what to do, so I’ll know what to do in an emergency.” 3. Approach 1: “Hey, I’m the Skipper here! Stand back – I’ll handle this!” Approach 2: “Here, let me share how to do that properly … it could make a difference if one of us gets hurt.” 4. Approach 1: “Hold my beer and watch this!” Approach 2: Pace is everything – slow, assured, confident boat handling is the result of years of studied practice. A disciplined approach is a safer, happier bet.

Being the Captain is as much about cultivating awareness and a love of learning new things as it is about logging sea time.

In truth, luck is just that, luck. Time has a way of teaching us that inexperience, ignorance, and false bravado attract bad luck in a big way, while good sense, training, and a temperate, professional approach to boating attracts good luck in an equally big way. Bottom line? Neither physics nor the sea care about you. If you care about you, recognize here and now that the flavor of luck you earn is driven solely by the choices you make. In the spirit of facilitating good luck, I offer positive characteristics I associate with becoming captain. Romance and the Sea: I do not refer to the passion between two people, but rather about our rampant, infectious fervor for boating fueled by our natural attraction to water. Just as in human relationships, the man-boat attraction can be tough to characterize. People naturally long to be close to moving water. Deception Pass, Multnomah Falls, and even dining at local waterfront restaurants are huge draws. Walking in the wet sand along the surf line in Grayland or Westport is seductive to most. Throw in sailing, fishing, waterskiing, cruising, diving, etc., and you get the idea. The mysterious attraction may actually enhance our experience with boats. That said, I still think it’s useful to pause once in a while to reflect on how you got where you did regarding boating. To me, the words “why” and “be” dig at the heart of our passion for the sea, and better influence what kind of captain you’ll end up being. Staying in that mindful conversation may better serve to fuel your passion, and could help you become a better captain.

When you’re at the helm, you’re responsible for everyone on board. Your ability to put safety and skill above ego is critical. (Photo: Jan Anderson)

Instead, I’ll address what I call “mortar,” the essence that holds it all together. It is the mortar of boating that drives us to different levels of experiences and really (no, really!) is what we’re seeking in our insatiable passion for boating. With mortar in mind, here are two a p p ro a c h e s b o a t e r s t a k e t o w a rd becoming Captain:

Ed: We’re glad that you’re getting your magazines and spreading Northwest Yachting east of the Mississippi, Margaret!

Riviera 445 SUV Riviera, with its Flybridge (emphasizing bluewater performance) and Sport (focusing on entertaining alfresco) collections, offers a diverse lineup of sport motoryachts. The Riviera SUV line seeks to offer models that feature the best of both these worlds, and one of the newest examples is the 2017 Riviera 445 SUV. “Adventurer meets Entertainer,” the manufacturer boasts, and the word “crossover” seems unbiquitous with the yacht. There is some merit to this idea, for right off the bat an observer will note both the wide-open cockpit with fishing-oriented features and the single-level, entertainment friendly layout that extends from the transom, through the salon, and to the forward helm station. Fishing enthusiasts will appreciate two fish boxes integrated into the cockpit floor with pump-out capabilities and optional live bait tank in the transom. Chronic entertainers will be fans of the entertainment system, cockpit table,

top-loading refrigerated cool box, swim step, and optional BBQ. In true crossover style, the 445 SUV seeks to blend fishing functionality with yacht luxury comforts. Forward, an optional sun pad can be mounted along the centerline. The interior features a large galley located to the port, seating to starboard, and the helm station forward near descending stairs with access to berths and two enclosed heads below. The galley is equipped with a large stainless steel sink, a twoburner electric cooktop with removable pot restraints, a microwave/convection oven, and a pair of drawer-style refrigerators. Three single guest berths and an enclosed master suite forward means plenty of space for overnight visitors. The enclosed head attached to the master stateroom features a walk-in, glass-enclosed shower with teak seat. The 445 SUV has twin Volvo IPS 435-horsepower engines as standard. The optional IPS joystick will likely come into

play with tight docking maneuvers or when crosswinds come into effect. As far as the hull is concerned, the forefoot is deep and sharp, and the bow features a definite flare. The helm has a definite racecar feel with stiched leather wrapped around the console and wheel. Visbility for the skipper appears to be good thanks to large windows. Engine access is acheived with the press of a button, for the cockpit sole hinges upward electronically for multiple systems including the engines, genset, strainers, batteries, and more. Overall, the Riviera 445 SUV seeks to offer versatility, and if you want both to chase the salmon run and entertain your friends, this could be the yacht for you.

Beneteau Gran Turismo 46 The Beneteau Gran Turismo 46 is a modern-style sport cruiser with a plethora of customizable luxury accommodations. As one approaches, the exterior’s emphasis on open space for guests becomes apparent. The large foredeck features lounge space for sunbathers and walkways complete with rails lead to the cockpit aft. A large swim step with island-style transom seating at the stern blends into the covered area forward. The helm and ample cushioned seating are located around a large family-style table made to entertain. One descends a set of stairs into the salon where the fully-loaded galley awaits, complete with refrigerator/freezer and optional oven/grill. Choose from a few different layouts that alter the number of cabins (two or three). Two enclosed heads are standard. The interior definitely has a modern, Euro feel with an emphasis on comfort and space.

Specs LOA: 48’6” • Beam: 13’9” Displacement: 23,208 lbs. Draft: 5’ 4” Tankage (Fuel/Fresh): 238 gals./106 gals.

The manufacturer is quick to tout their copyright Air Step 2 Technology incorporated into the hull design. The concept is to funnel air flow under the hull that purportedly helps the Gran Turismo 46 accelerate faster. She is pushed along with twin Volvo IPS 600 or Z-Drive engines, up to 400 horsepower apiece. With a reported cruise speed of 30 knots and a maximum speed of 34, and the generous accommodations listed prior, the Beneteau Gran Turismo 46 certainly belongs in the sport cruiser category.

Beneteau Oceanis 48 The Beneteau Oceanis 48 is a popular modern build with some attributes familiar to the sailboat bloodline and other features innovative and new. Designed with an emphasis on luxury cruising, the Oceanis 48 is eager to accommodate. Prominent innovations include the electric fold-down transom that when deployed adds another roughly three feet of cockpit space. The folded-down transom essentially becomes a swim step that rivals motoryachts of its size. The cockpit didn’t need much help, for it is quite large to begin with. The dual helms are both within reach of the table in the center. The cockpit is further uncluttered thanks to an arch that holds the sheet blocks. No messy traveler for guests to step around here. Plenty of performancerelated features include in-mast furling

mainsail, asymmetrical spinnaker rigging, and electric winches modify each Oceanis 48 to her skipper’s desires. The deep fin keel hull features hard chines that are meant to reduce heeling. Inside, a three-stateroom, two-head layout with a huge forward master suite beckons. Like pretty much all Beneteau sailboats, one is not left in want as far as

the large galley and entertaining space is concerned. If the itch for a modern sailing yacht that focuses on easy handling and accommodations is just too much to bear, you may want to look at a Beneteau Oceanis 48.

2018 KingFisher 3025 Offshore Sometimes you just want a lean, mean, fishing machine, and the KingFisher line of aluminum boats tend to fit the bill nicely. Enter the 2018 KingFisher 3025 Offshore, a trailerable option for PNW anglers. Right off the bat, one notices the twin Yamaha 200-horsepower, four-stroke DEC motors. These two motors can be controlled from either the front helm, located in the cabin, or rear helm, located in the cockpit. An additional Yamaha 9.9-horsepower four-stroke engine is also mounted off the transom and can be controlled from the rear helm when needed. The 3025 has two feature anglers should love: a big cabin and a huge working deck. The oversized fish lockers with commercial diaphragm pump outs and cutting

board with fish rail are just a few examples of what the 3025 offers. The cabin has that classic Pacific Northwest forward-attack slant that shouts “Fish on!” while the interior has ample headroom, a decent-sized galley to starboard, foldable dinette to port, and a V-berth forward by the helm. In fact, the woodwork detailing is quite nice

and a cut above what one might expect, and it’s easy to imagine a comfortable overnight cruise aboard. There’s a lot going for the KingFisher 3025 Offshore. If you’re interested, contact Tom-n-Jerry’s Boat Center, Inc. for more details. You can learn more on their website at

like a diesel heater and optional sink, stove, and fridge, this build is all about roughwater utility. The many welded railings and standard deck grip material are wise safety features, especially if the skipper wants to go at fast speeds over rough waters like the boat is intended to do. In an era where many builders are seeking to marry the frills of a cruising yacht with the functionality of a fishing platform, it’s almost refreshing to see a boat that is essentially the child of a military veteran and commercial fisherperson. If you want a head-turning, no-nonsense, bluewater fishing machine/weekender, the Life Proof 25’ Full Cabin beckons.

Blow 'em Up! Inflatable Sponsons / $375.00 Taking a solid-hull dinghy out for a row can be a wonderful, relaxing experience. However, when the weather is foul or you’re loaded up to capacity, nobody wants to worry about tipping over into the chilly Pacific Ocean brine. Fortunately, Gig Harbor Boat Works resurrected their line of inflatable external sponsons, formerly known as "Dinghy Dogs", to put us at ease. These revampled inflatable sponsons attach easily to the gunwales of a boat and

sit high enough to stay out of the water (so as not to add drag), but angle downward in order to stay clear of the oars. The makers in Gig Harbor have put their inflatable sponsons through all kinds of tests (aka, put somebody in a drysuit and try to sink the dinghy), and the sponsons spared the dinghy and tester a watery fate every time. These inflatable sponsons store flat or folded when deflated, which should make them easy to stow when underway. The valves are compatible with just about any basic air pump, so adding air or deflating

Here we see Gig Harbor Boat works inflatable sponson tester, Falk, hard at work. Try as he might, he cannot take the dinghy down, thanks to the inflatable sponsons. should be simple. Simple, yet useful, just how a good boating product should be. If you’re a fan of taking the dinghy out for a row, but want to be ready for when things go south, you may want to have a pair of inflatable sponsons on hand, just in case. They are priced at $375 per pair and a separate compatible air pump is also available for $20. You can learn more or order them online from the Gig Harbor Boat Works website (

Build-a-Bar Workshop

Custer Build-A-Bar LED Blocks / $30.00 Need bright spot or flood light on your deck or dock? Also need a custom product to fit a special location or space? Custer Products has developed Build-A-Bar modular LED blocks, which are marketed as perfect for high-performance marine applications, and suitable for use as deck lights, transom lights, and nighttime navigation lights. These modules are individual seven inches long interlocking lamp units. Attach them side-to-side to build a light bar ranging from narrow to wide, or stack the units, by interlocking top to bottom. Does your boat need a wall of light? Custer says these lamps can be interlocked to any length or height needed, and can be ordered in close-proximity flood, or far-reaching spot light beam patterns. Need even more? Combine the flood and spot lamps together for both wide and far-reaching light. The Build-A-Bar units feature long-life, 30-Watt CREE light-emitting diodes (LEDs) to achieve bright beam patterns, and minimize energy use. Each lamp unit is said to produce 3,000 lumens of light. The housings are designed for extreme use, and have rugged die-cast aluminum housings, high-impact polycarbonate lenses, and are certified IP-67 for water and dust intrusion. Your lighting systems come with stainless steel mounts, and connecting hardware. Contact to find a distributor in your area, and lighten up!

Rack the Boat

Shore Tee FootStakes / $59.99

Are you just going to drop that beautiful kayak, canoe or paddleboard right there on the ground? It was designed to be in water, so give it a rest on a set of Shore Tee step-in stands from FootStake. Now you can wash, drain, secure your craft, strap it down, and keep it out of the sand, mud, plant life, and rocks. These innovative stands are secured by simply stepping them into the ground by foot wherever you wish to store a valuable boat or other oversized item. Kayaks will dry out quickly with Shore Tee racks so you can avoid mold, and elevation off the earth keeps hatches and cockpits dirt free. The manufacturer says the stands were developed for home

or travel, and are made of a plastic that is lightweight, packable, recyclable, strong, and weatherproof. Developed and tested by outdoor enthusiasts from the shores of Lake Michigan, the Shore Tee cradles and protects your valuable equipment while raising the hull to a manageable height for cleaning and polishing. The set weighs just over 3 pounds and actually floats! Eyelets at the ends of the support arms allow you to strap the boat to the stand. Each stand base is just 20" wide by 24" high, and easy to bring on your adventures. Extend the life of your kayak and take along a handy pair of stands for just $59.99 direct from shoretee.

The manufacturer says the Hyperchiller can chill up to 12.5 oz. of liquid at once, and can be used twice before refreezing to chill a total of 25 oz. each use. Just refreeze for the next day.

Now You’re Cooking Gonzo Grill / $190.00

Need a single portable cook system that can cook almost anything? Or, maybe, double the outdoor kitchen with more than one? Take a look at Eureka!’s latest: the Gonzo Grill is a flexible and compact grill that can easily be switched between three cooking modes: griddle, grill, or gas stove. The cast iron cooking surface is a durable material that maximizes radiant heat transfer to your

food. Eureka! pre-seasons the Gonzo Grill’s cook surfaces, and repeated use seasons the cast iron over time. Reverse the griddle top and it becomes a grill surface. Remove it and use cookware to boil or sauté on the recessed nickel-plated steel grate. A steel lid with vents controls heat and smoke. The burner is said to produce 10,000 BTU/h for your culinary needs and the Gonzo Grill is said to have

excellent simmer control. Cleanup is easy; wipe out the removable, dishwasher-safe drip tray. There’s an integrated grill scraper to prevent build-up on the grill or griddle surfaces. Just hand wash the cast iron grill part with water. The Gonzo Grill has built-in expansion capability with the JetLink Output Port, should your group need more than one grill or Jetboil Stove. Use a propane canister or tank; the Gonzo Grill has a rotary ignition feature. The Gonzo Grill is 11 inches high and 14 inches in diameter; it weighs a bit over 14 lb. Available through REI or direct from eurekacamping. com, priced at about $190.00.

Top Form Topside Coats

Oceanair Performance Coatings / Prices Vary Now that we’ve got one foot in the summer and the other in the fall, many Pacific Northwest boaters are looking at boatyards and planning painting projects. Oceanair Performance Coatings have a wide selection of topside products, from primers to varnishes to paints, which may be just what you need. The Zinc Chromate Wash Primer is designed to evenly etch metal surfaces and provide short-term anti-corrosion benefits, best suited to masts and metal parts where filling and leveling is not required. If you’re looking to protect your aluminum or steel from corrosion, the California-compliant (which is saying something, as California has strict

VOC regulations) VOC Strontium Chromate Epoxy Primer may be what you need. The 82 Series Linear Polyurethane Topcoat may be the star of the lineup. This two-component coating looks sharp when applied and, with its resinrich chemical base, should last for some extra mileage. Oceanair Coatings also has a broad array of color options that includes solid colors, metallics, and pearls. All of these products are made in the USA. There is a whole line of Oceanair above-water products to choose from. You can check out for more details on Oceanair’s lineup of products.

Smart AIS Gets Good Grades Vesper Marine WatchMate XB-8000 and Vision The proliferation of AIS (Automated Information Systems) for recreational boats seems exponential these days, and that’s a good thing as far as safety is concerned. For the uninitiated, the primary purpose of an AIS system aboard is to constantly provide and receive updated vessel information (ex. GPS coordinates, speed, navigation status, etc.) to and from a satellite network. The original goal of AIS was to help avoid ship collisions, but a modern AIS system has many more benefits to the user. Being a part of the network is useful to recreational boaters in order to detect other AIS-carrying vessels nearby, broadcast their own information to potentially be used in search and rescue situations, and also see/broadcast alarms (like man overboard and anchor alarms). Modern AIS are loaded with integrated features and often equipped with automated SOS signals and the like. Now commonly known as “smart AIS”, the concept has come a long way since the old days of text-only information. Vesper’s line of new Class-B smart AIS seems to exemplify some of the more modern trends with swathes of features crammed into small, sleek hardware. Notable in the lineup is the WatchMate Vision smartAIS Touchscreen Transponder. The Vision is initially eye-catching because it features an integrated touchscreen. Most 58 NORTHWEST YACHTING || SEPTEMBER 2017

transponders are rather unexciting to look at as they usually relay their information to a separate multifunction display, but the vision features a 5.7-inch color touch screen. The initial impression is just the beginning, for the Vision is also equipped with WiFi. The WiFi comes into play when interacting with up to five mobile devices, which allows the user to monitor AIS and 5Hz-GPS navigation data, alarms, and more from a smartphone or tablet with the WatchMate App. These alarms vary from collision avoidance, anchor watch, and man overboard applications. What’s more, the Vision is a NMEA 2000 gateway that can route over WiFi, USB, and NMEA 0183 data to fully integrate it into a vessel’s systems. The compact unit is also rugged with a fully waterproof rating of IPx7, which means it can be mounted just about anywhere. The final stroke is that Vesper Marine products are compatible with the other big leading companies like B&G, Furuno, Garmin, Humminbird, Lowrance, Raymarine, and Simrad. If you got it, the Vision probably works with it. Also touted by Vesper is the brand-new WatchMate XB-8000 smartAIS Transponder, a screen-less cousin of the Vision with more of a traditional “black box” look. One difference is that the Vision has an integrated GPS antenna with optional external GPS compatibility, while the XB-

8000 has no integrated GPS antenna and is to be used with an external GPS antenna. The XB-8000 also comes with an external alarm and switch that can be mounted just about anywhere aboard. Basically, if you start drifting position due to anchor drag when your anchor alarm is activated, this pint-sized external alarm will blare the warning loud and clear. The XB-8000 may have the edge over the Vision in terms of space needed, for it has an ultralow profile with no screen to worry about mounting properly. At the end of the day, Vesper Marine’s Vision and XB-8000 smartAIS transponders look like competitive contenders in an increasingly sophisticated market. With their emphasis on integration, ease of use, and a Swiss-Army-like variety of capabilities, smart AIS from all brands will probably continue to do more and more in the years to come. Check out for more information. The Vision retails at $1,249 and the XB-8000 for $799.

Prime Meridian The Tom Rutten Memorial Race is the final sailboat regatta of the iconic annual Downtown Sailing Series, which takes place most Thursdays of the summer months out of Elliott Bay Marina. Here we see Meridian, a 70-foot custom sloop owned by Downtown Sailing Series regular Glen Bonci, pulling away from the pack. Smith Tower of hisotric Seattle fame and the haze of seasonal forest fires, a not-uncommon phenomenon in the Pacific Northwest, are promient in the background. “The Downtown Sailing Series is such an important part of our summer, to connect with friends and partners, to come together. It’s just a big, giant festival,” said Bonci to Northwest Yachting last year. With a casual sailing attitude and famed post-regatta BBQ, the Downtown Sailing Series is a prime cut of what a Puget Sound summer on the water has to offer.

Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Return of the Kings (and Coho) September is the month when salmon are either already migrating or very close to their river migration. Large numbers of Chinook (kings) will still be in the saltwater bays, estuaries, and near-shore spots like the San Juan Islands. This is also a big month for coho fishing in the salt where it’s open. Due to predicted low runs of coho, or silvers as they are also known, some rivers, especially in Washington, are closed to coho fishing. As always, make sure and study the fishing regulations for any area where you plan to fish. Also check the emergency closures on the websites of the agency having jurisdiction over the waters. Inshore opportunities and river fishing for salmon can be very good. August saw pretty darn good fishing right out of the gate for kings in the Buoy 10 fishery of the Columbia River. If you’ve never fished the “Big C,” or are still trying to unlock its secrets, going with a guide is a great way to learn. Fishing may be closed in the lower river by the time you read this, but upriver opportunities are still going. A mix of Chinook and coho can make this a fun and productive experience.

Out in the salt chuck, some of the largest kings of the year will be caught in September. Right around Labor Day of 2010 we saw a 61-pounder caught off San Juan Island. In 2004, at the old Einar Nielsen Derby out of Roche Harbor, the top ten fish were all over 30 pounds. I’m not sure we’ll see that kind of fishing this year, but it’s sure fun to know that the next strike could be a big one. For Chinook in places like the San Juans, the productive methods are pretty simple. Most folks will be downrigger trolling. Larger spoons and hootchies behind a flasher just flat-out catch these fish. It’s hard to beat a herring or anchovy in a bait helmet as well. However, they are more susceptible to dogfish, so if you’re catching sharks, you may want to switch to hardware. If you’re out on the water early, put your offering down at 30 to 60 feet and try shallow first. The kings may be up in the top of the water column. As the sun comes up, they will move down deeper. Keep dropping until you find them. Use your sounder or fish finder and look for fish arches. As Chinook get closer to river mouths, jigging weighted lures such as Buzz Bombs or Point Wilson darts can be productive. The fish may be feeding less, but they’ll hit these out of aggression. Time to fire up the smoker! For coho, start shallow in the water column and troll a bit faster. However, don’t resist dropping your downrigger balls to depths of 120 feet and beyond. I’ve caught a lot of big silvers down at 130 feet plus. Also, look for these fish in deeper water farther from shore. If you see the tide creating a rip, troll just outside this water line to find the fish. I don’t get too concerned about what I’m trolling. Spoons and hootchies will both work. When coho go on the bite, they’ll hit just about anything. Another fun method out in the ocean or Straits is to troll a bucktail fly a short way out, right on the surface near the prop wash. Having a crazed, cart-wheeling coho blastin’ on a bucktail is a giggle producer for sure! Another good tip this month is to make sure and study your salmon descriptions and be ready to identify different species quickly in case you need to release them. This time of year, you may catch anything from pinks to silvers to Chinook and chum. Just because a fish is Continued on Page 102

Clockwise from top: Capt. Kerry Allen of Offshore Northwest and the ladies of Outdoor Chic Clique found the albacore out of Westport; a final shot at a crab feed is a great reluctant farewell to summertime; fishing for Chinook can be best in local waters in September.

A lifelong resident of Washington, Kevin Klein has been on the rivers, lakes, and salt waters of the Pacific Northwest since conception. In 2004 Kevin relocated to the San Juan Islands and began to write numerous articles for outdoor magazines and contribute to websites dedicated to fishing. Kevin can be found promoting sport fishing and giving seminars on boating and fishing techniques. A passion became a career when Kevin joined Inside Passage Yacht Sales as their Northwest sports and fishing representative. On any given day you may find Kevin and his wife Vicki, also an accomplished angler, plying the waters of the Northwest, spreading the word of the benefits of the boating and fishing lifestyle.



On Watch By Peter Schrappen

Policy: The Shocking Truth If you have an interest in stray current, ground fault protection, or using a toaster to make breakfast, then this is the column for you. Recently, thanks to Dwight Jones of Elliott Bay Marina, I learned way more about electricity than I ever knew possible. Dwight shared with me that a new electrical standard for Washington marinas was moving forward. As I looked into this issue, I channeled my inner-Mike Wallace from 60 Minutes. Whew, did this issue have all the makings for mistakes, misinterpretations, and ramifications that could devastate the recreational boating industry. First, what is stray current? According to our friends at (I’m not making this website up), stray current is the electricity flow via buildings, ground, or equipment due to electrical supply system imbalances or wiring flaws. It refers to an existence of electrical potential that can be found between objects that should not be subjected to voltage. From my third-grade understanding, stray current is the leakage of current that doesn’t return home. All appliances can leak a certain level of stray current before a problem arises (toasters for example can leak three milliamps [mA] of stray current). Second, there’s nothing wrong with adopting standards regarding stray current. There’s also nothing wrong with asking marinas and boaters to be responsible for the wiring in their boats and around the marina. After all, too much stray current (especially in freshwater) can lead to electric-shock drownings. Problems bubble up, however, when those regulated (that’s us) and industry experts (i.e. electricians that wire marinas) are not at the table when standards are created. The axiom that “if you aren’t at the table, you are on the menu” holds true, and there’s no better example than what’s happening around the country on this stray-current issue. So, what’s happening? The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recently adopted a National Electrical Code that is now being adopted at the state level. This gigantic code has a small portion about marinas. The marina portion mandates an incredibly low standard of 30 mA across an entire marina. More specifically, if ten toasters are on at the same time, the breaker trips and everyone in the marina loses power. How did this happen? The American Boat and Yacht Council put together a study that was then misinterpreted (according to their president) by the NFPA. For those keeping score, a misinterpreted study led to unattainable standards that would be in place until the next code is adopted in 2020. A few other oddities to note: No one at the national marine level (no associations, dock builders, boaters, etc.) was aware of this emerging issue or lobby-


ing to prevent this mistake from happening. While I’m making up this lobbying effort as I go, relying on my tried-and-true rules of thumb (like “building consensus around a priority”), here’s what I can tell you: 1. The Coalition Against Unattainable Standards (I just came up with that moniker) won a year’s reprieve from Washington’s Labor & Industries (L&I), which was all set to adopt the 30 mA standard. 2. Our position is that 30 mA limit for each boat and 100 mA of stray current at the entire facility protects human life and is a feasible solution. 3. No marina is going to go through a process to improve their wiring if the new mark is 30 mA of stray current is the standard for the whole facility. This coalition, led by members of the Northwest Marine Trade Association and the Recreational Boating Association and their (highly-regarded – hey, what can I say?) government affairs professionals are meeting with L&I

An entire Marina of this size losing power over 30 mA of stray current isn’t a realistic policy, but it’s possible to work towarda reasonable standard.

during this coming year with real-life evidence that we all want the same thing: safe marinas. In the meantime, I am enthused that sound policy will come out of this situation. I’m working the issue on the national level plus leading the effort at the state. The good news is that I was encouraged after our group’s first meeting with L&I. The L&I leaders I met with want to get this right. They realize that there’s no data (or no data that we can find thus far) to support a cumulative 30 mA stray current limit for an entire marina is the best standard. They want marinas to improve their wiring and no one wants a poor standard that make marinas less safe. That’s a good place to start, but there’s work to be done. This situation, once again, shows what can happen if boaters and the business community are not engaged at every step of the way when new laws and regulations are produced. Democracy (and policies) are determined by those who show up. Peter Schrappen is the NMTA’s Government Affairs Director and the Clean Boating Foundation’s Executive Director. Additionally, he serves on boards of the Boating Safety Advisory Council, the Washington Boating Alliance, and the U.S. Superyacht Association.

Five Great Ways to Prepare Salmon The arrival of September means fall is upon us and it’s time to say goodbye to the beautiful, hot summer we enjoyed in the Pacific Northwest this year. But fall also means we are in full salmon mode. The salmon are running in Puget Sound and the market price is dropping. Is it possible to have too much salmon? Never! Now is a great time to try some different cooking techniques with the abundant salmon. Practice makes perfect! There are five types of salmon: king (Chinook), pink (hump), sockeye (red), coho (silver), and chum (dog). They all run in the Pacific Ocean and return home, notably in Puget Sound, the Columbia River, and southeast/south Alaska. The time of year for the homecoming varies from place to place, but a good local rule of thumb is to expect some type of salmon to be running from May to October. When the salmon fisheries are open for recreational fishing depends on multiple factors, so check the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife for updates ( If you already caught your fish, or bought your fish, handling and cooking is pretty much the same, except if you are dealing with a whole fresh-caught salmon, you will need to scale, gut, and clean the fish. When it comes time to cook the fish, are you cooking a whole fish, a filet, a steak or a portion cut of the fish? You should always rinse your fish with cool water before cooking, and pat the fish dry using paper towels. Try to use or freeze your

salmon two to three days from buying or fishing. Also, as you work on the salmon, try to keep the fish as cold as possible, don’t leave the fish out at room temperature or you are shortening the shelf life of the fish. What cut of fish is your choice. Some of the following preparations are good for a filet as well as a portion cut of fish. There are many options for cooking salmon: roast, braise, poach, steam, bake, grill, fry, and broil. Once you develop a good repertoire of cooking skills, then it is a matter of learning about great ingredients. The best place to start exploring flavors is with herbs and vegetables. Try to stick to a specific cooking technique and practice. Once you feel proficient, move to the next technique. You will be amazed at how your skills improve. All the techniques in the following recipes are fairly easy with few steps. When cooking salmon, keep in mind that a portion of king salmon filet is much thicker than a portion of coho or sockeye, so keep an eye on the cooking times. Cooking temperatures can vary from a high-grill heat of 500 degrees to a slower bake of 325 degrees. Regardless of the cooking, enjoy yourself, and have fun; it will show in the food!

Roast Salmon with a Piperade Relish One side of salmon with skin on, pin bones removed Extra virgin olive oil Salt, Pepper It is best to roast salmon in a 400-degree oven on a baking sheet. Put the whole salmon filet patted dry, skin on, and pin bones removed on an oiled baking sheet. Oil surface of the fish and season the top of the fish with salt and pepper. Two to three filets will take about 12 – 15 minutes to roast. Add piperade sauce (recipe below).

Piperade Relish Pictured without Piperade Relish.

3 plum tomatoes, peeled and roughly chopped – about 2 cups 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 1 medium onion, thinly sliced 2 medium green bell peppers, stem, seeds, and ribs removed, roughly chopped

/2 teaspoon salt 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon sugar 1/ teaspoon red pepper flakes 2 1

Cut a small X into bottom of each tomato. Bring a pot of water to a boil, add tomatoes, and cook until skin begins to wrinkle and peel at the edges, about 30 seconds. Drain and rinse with cool water and peel skins off with your fingers. Roughly chop tomatoes and set aside. In a 12-inch skillet over medium heat, heat oil until hot, but not smoking. Add onions, peppers, and salt to sauté, stirring frequently, until onions are translucent and peppers have started to lighten in spots, about ten minutes. Add garlic and continue to sauté for another minute or so. Stir in tomatoes, sugar, and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until tomatoes are starting to fall apart and peppers are soft but still hold their shape, about 15 minutes. Remove cover and continue to cook, stirring frequently until mixture thickens like a slightly runny relish, about 5 minutes more. Salt to taste.


Salmon in Parchment 6-ounce salmon filets, pin bones removed and patted dry 1 tablespoon soft butter per portion of fish Salt Pepper 1/ cup shaved sweet onions per portion 4

2 tablespoons fresh herbs /4 cup white wine Seasonal vegetables, sliced zucchini, diced tomatoes, peas, and asparagus cut along bias White wine Lemon, thinly sliced (optional) 1

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Unroll a 20-inch length of parchment paper and fold in half to 10 inches. Open the paper and butter the paper in the center in a 6-inch circle on one side. Season the butter with salt and pepper and place the fish on top. Season the fish, and then arrange the vegetables in a thin layer around and on top of the fish, enough for a portion. Top the fish with some herbs, drizzle with a few tablespoons of wine on top, then fold the parchment shut. Then, starting at the fold, crease and fold the paper around the entire edge to seal the packet airtight. Keep the packet level and place on a baking sheet and bake in the oven for 10 minutes. The packet should puff and turn golden brown on the top. Serve immediately, with a pair of scissors or a sharp knife to cut open the top. It is a fun and dramatic presentation!

Salt-Crusted Salmon One side of salmon with skin on, pin bones removed and patted dry Extra virgin olive oil 4 cups coarse salt, approximately (the really big granules, not just kosher) Freshly cracked pepper Lemon, thinly sliced (optional) It is best to roast salmon in a 400-degree oven on a sheet pan. Oil surface of the fish and season. Two to three filets will take about 12 – 15 minutes to roast. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mound the salt around and over the filet of fish, trying to get it to make a cohesive crust over the fish (it will make removal easier later). Roast the whole filet in the oven for about 12-15 minutes for a sockeye filet, and 20-25 minutes for a thick king filet. Use a quick-read thermometer to check the temperature of the interior of the fish at the thickest point. Remove the salmon from the oven and let sit for two minutes in the crust. Carefully lift away the salt (the top will look slightly rare but the side will be cooked). Transfer to a clean work surface and finish removing salt with a pastry brush. Season with a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, fresh ground black pepper, and serve with a little lemon.

Roast Salmon with a Miso, Sake, and Soy Glaze 1 filet of sockeye salmon, skin on, pin bones removed 1/ cup dry sake 2 1/ cup mirin wine 2 2 tablespoons soy sauce 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger

3 tablespoons sugar 1/ cup light miso paste 2 2-3 green onions, sliced on the bias, both white and green parts Canola or light oil Green onions, sliced

Heat an oven to 350 degrees and place the filet of salmon on an oiled baking sheet. In a small pot, heat the sake, mirin, soy, ginger, and sugar together. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for ten minutes until the mixture thickens slightly. Remove from heat and stir in miso paste. Using a pastry brush, coat the surface of the fish with a thick layer of paste. Bake for ten minutes and brush again. Finish the fish in the oven until just cooked through. Garnish with sliced green onions and serve.

Grilled Salmon Skewers 1 filet of salmon or about 2 pounds center cut filet of salmon (pin bones removed and cut into 1” cubes) 6-8” bamboo skewers, soaked in warm water 1 large yellow onion, peeled and cut into 1” wedges About 20 fresh bay leaves 2 lemons cut into 1/4” rounds Salt and pepper to taste Extra virgin olive oil Skewer the salmon cubes, alternating with bay leaves and a folded piece of lemon (fold the ring of lemon in half to skewer the rind), then add wedges of onion between. Prepare all the skewers and chill before cooking. Heat a grill hot and brush the skewers with a small amount of oil and grill quickly, about 5 minutes total. These can be prepared in advance and held raw in the refrigerator for a day or so.





The boat building heritage of the Pacific Northwest lives on in Ed Monk Jr. designs that still ply the world’s seas. B y C a p ta i n C H r i s C o u c h


What is the standard by which you measure yacht quality? Where do you set the bar when it comes to performance? What is your Gold Standard? As a professional full-time delivery captain, I have had the opportunity and pleasure of running some of the best designed and built motoryachts on the planet. What’s more, many of my favorite yachts are all designed by the same Pacific Northwest legend, Bainbridge Island-based Ed Monk Jr. Of the 157,000 nautical miles I have logged as a long-range motoryacht delivery captain, 55,000 of those miles are in vessels designed by Ed Monk Jr. We of the Pacific Northwest can boast of a long line of very well-designed and very well-built boats that share the common heritage of Ed Monk Jr: Tollycraft, McQueen, Nordlund, Christensen, and Westport among them. His designs have gotten me through a variety of intense situations, drawn here from my log: May 1996. Northbound in Puget Sound. I just left Shilshole with an Ocean Alexander 456 Cockpit Motoryacht. I am on day one of a three-day trip around to Portland, Oregon. The wind is out of the north at 25 knots pushing a three-foot chop with occasional fours. June 1998. Southbound between Point Arena and Bodega Bay, California. I am in a 65-foot Tollycraft Cockpit Motoryacht. The wind from Point Arena to Point Reyes was forecast to be northwest 10 to 15 knots. Because of the not-forecasted cape effect, within the first five miles


the wind goes from 10 knots to 30 plus pushing a short period of a six- to eightfoot following sea. August 2005. Northbound off Gold Beach, Oregon. I am running a 43-foot Tollycraft aft cabin from Alameda, California to Anacortes, Washington. The wind is out of the northwest at 15 knots, gusting to 20. I beat into a two-foot chop with occasional threes. May 2010. Southbound between Cape Flattery and Cape Alava, Washington Coast. There is a 10-foot swell from the west at nine seconds with a two- to three-foot chop on top from a northwesterly wind at 15 knots. I left Neah Bay early that morning in a 54-foot Ocean Alexander Trawler after waiting two days for the weather to calm down. April 2015. Northbound off Cape Mendocino, California. I am four weeks into a delivery from La Paz, Mexico to Seattle, Washington. I am just three miles off the beach trying to stay inside the north wind which had been blowing for the past week. I was taking advantage of a 24-hour window where the higher winds had moved a bit further offshore leaving a leftover three- to five-foot chop at eight seconds. My vessel? An 80-foot Nordlund.

December 2015. Colon Panama to Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Distance 825 nautical miles. I have been waiting on the Caribbean side of the Canal for ten days for the northeast trade winds to subside. I am running a 78 Ocean Alexander from Seattle, Washington to Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This vessel carries 2,000 gallons of fuel and burns 1.7 gallons per mile at 10 knots. I plan to arrive in Isla Mujeres with no less than 600 gallons on board. Running at 9.5 knots will ensure I stay within that limit. I depart at 0800 hours with a planned arrival approximately three days later mid-afternoon. The winds have been blowing from the northeast at 20 to 30 knots for over a week, pushing a six- to eight-foot chop. Finally, they drop to 10 knots. We depart with light wind, but with a leftover shorter period five-foot swell on the starboard beam. Running at 9.5 knots, the vessel easily negotiates these conditions for the next 24 hours until we turn more towards the northwest where we put more sea behind us.

My Analysis In each of the cases I previously mentioned, I am running at approximately 10

The Ocean Alexander 54 trawler, no longer in production, is still a popular Ed Monk Jr. designed model. knots and burning between 1.5 and 1.7 gallons per mile. I am enjoying a relatively comfortable ride that enables me to stand unsupported at the helm, arms crossed, gazing respectfully out at the open sea ahead of me. In the motoryacht world, from about 60 feet length overall and up, 1.5 gallons per mile at 10 knots is about as good as it gets. The yachts from my anecdotes have different sizes, manufacturers, and styles pitted against completely different sea conditions and locations. But all are designed by Ed Monk Jr. In 1977, Alex Chueh of Taiwan teamed up with Ed Monk Jr. to create Ocean Alexander, now known as Alexander Marine. To this day, Alexander Marine is the only production boat builder still building Ed Monk Jr.-designed motoryachts. It was on an Ocean Alexander that I first was introduced to the design of Ed Monk Jr. and I consider myself very fortunate that the majority of my deliveries to this day are on Ocean Alexanders. My first introduction to Ed Monk Jr.-designed vessels was back in the mid- 1990s. In 1996, I was out of the Coast Guard for five years and had a couple of full-time yacht jobs plus a couple of commercial gigs under my belt. I started running Ocean Alexanders for

the Seattle dealer between their stores in Seattle and Portland, Oregon. After the first few minutes of the first trip, I learned and began to appreciate the virtues of good hull design. I became a disciple of Ed Monk Jr. From my years in the U.S. Coast Guard, as a corporate pilot, and now as

Ed Monk Jr. Edwin “Ed” Monk Jr. is still in the yacht design business as the owner of his Bainbridge Island, Washington-based firm, Edwin Monk & Son, Naval Architects. A private person, Ed Monk Jr. has no website, has never been part of a yacht club, does not frequent boat shows, and rarely gives interviews to the press. Ed Monk Jr. worked with his father, Ed Monk Sr., for many years on both recreational and commercial craft, and the junior Monk’s designs always maintain an emphasis on seaworthiness. His most recent work is manifested in Nordlund and McQueeen yachts custom one-off builds, the largest of which is around 115 feet in length. Long time readers may remember this Monk Jr.-designed Nordlund 105’, which appeared in Northwest Yachting in 2003 along with the architect himself (pictured above).

vessels from a variety of builders in the offshore environment: steel, aluminum, wood, and fiberglass; large and small; multi- and mono-hull; one engine and two. I’ve experienced engineering and construction that is rock solid and also piloted builds that leave me scratching my head asking, ‘What were they thinking?’ Boats are not created equal. Out of all these characteristics and hundreds of combinations, it is design that will dictate what you will end up with. It is design that will separate the good from the bad and design is the first and most important element upon which a boat is built. Start with a poor design with great engineering and construction, and you will still have a poorly-designed vessel in the end. Number one on my list and the vessel by which I compare all others is the 65 Tollycraft Cockpit Motoryacht. For me, the 65 Tolly embodies the best combination of design, engineering, construction, performance, and seakeeping. There is no mistaking the look of an Ed Monk Jr. hull design with the fine entry of the bow and classic lines. The look of the 65 Tollycraft is the epitome of his style and a heritage that is shared by every vessel that started life on his drawing board. Fuel economy/performance and seakeeping are the most important elements Continued on Page 74


that I deal with. The average leg on a typical West Coast delivery can run from 240 to 480 nautical miles. On a coast-tocoast trip through the Panama Canal, I can see legs up to 800 nautical miles. The average motoryacht does not carry a lot of fuel and doing these legs efficiently at 10 knots in relative comfort is extremely important (especially for someone who makes a living doing it). When I consider any vessel for a delivery, my first thoughts go to the overall design and construction of that vessel. How heavily is she built? What are her seakeeping characteristics? What speed

will I be able to cruise her at? From there I will develop a set of limits by which I determine the weather conditions I pick for the trip. The lighter the vessel and corresponding seakeeping characteristics, the better the weather I need. Next, I will look at what her fuel capacity and expected fuel burn is for the planned 10 knots I hope to run. There is little correlation between the weight of the vessel and her fuel burn, rather fuel efficiency comes down to hull design. For example, take two 65 footers side-by-side that have the same length, engine power, and basic weight, but different hull designs. The

65’ Tollycraft MY The 65’ Tollycraft MY is a classic example of an Ed Monk Jr.-designed motoryacht with Pacific Northwest character. The largest yacht of the Tollycraft line, the 65 was built between the years of 1992 and 1997 with a total production run of 13 builds. The 65 features a semi-displacement hull with reported dry weight of 68,000 lbs with relatively narrow, seakeeping-focused beam of 17’11”. With an expansive foredeck, large 23-foot-long flybridge (with wet bar and hydraulic davit), wall-to-wall master suite, and many more amenities, the 65 touts an excellent balance of sea-saltiness and luxury. Many of the hulls are actively cruising to this day and have maintained their value reasonably well. You may be able to find one in great shape in the neighborhood of $650,000.

The Ocean Alexander 86 is another Ed Monk Jr.designed member of the Alexander Marine family. better hull design will be up to 20 percent more fuel efficient at the same speed. I have run very lightly built vessels that have had poor hull designs with lousy fuel consumption. I have a deep-seated appreciation and respect for the beauty and power of the sea. I endeavor to work with her, not against her, and strive to pick the best of her weather for my clients and my journeys. Ed Monk Jr. designs boats that seem to flow as easily through the water as well as with the sea. Design is the foundation upon which all vessels are built, and when it comes to performance and seakeeping, Ed Monk Jr. designs are my Gold Standard.

Captain Chris Couch is a successful Pacific Northwest-based delivery captain who has been widely used by companies like Alexander Marine 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.

A Sailor I N


Whether or not you voted for him, when it comes to boating, Governor Inslee knows what he’s talking about. By Peter Schrappen I was recently able to catch up with Washington Governor Jay Inslee and talk about boating policy as he settles into his second term at the helm. It might surprise some to learn just how comfortable Inslee is on the water. He comes to recreational boating like many of us – his father taught him the intricacies of knot-tying and he has passed



along his love affair for the water to his three sons. During a recent legislative visit with the Evergreen State’s 21st Governor, he was quick to point out to my six-yearold that the bowline knot is the “only knot you will ever need.” While I was familiar with Gov. Inslee’s love of sailing and his annual boating trips through the San Juan Islands, I left

in place. This framework is one of three “even-year budgets” that set the funding on various state projects. There are several boating facility projects that Gov. Inslee has put in his draft budget that will remain unfunded until an agreement is reached by Republicans and Democrats -- which may happen in the fall or may not happen at all. In particular, Gov. Inslee mentions the millions of dollars set aside in the budget for boaters’ benefit, including Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account grants, State Parks funding, and the Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program. The good news is that not all marinerelated activities are wrapped up in the still-to-be-determined capital budget. In fact, the operating budget, which the Legislature agreed to before they ended their session on June 30, will bring $200 million in new investments for career and technical education. Insiders point out that this money would not be possible without Gov. Inslee’s leadership. The funding was one of the industry’s top legislative priorities for 2017. The Northwest Marine Trade Association (NMTA), the business community that represents the state’s recreational boating industry, joined the Washington Business Alliance (WBA)-led coalition to win over

our time together with a better understanding of just how boating informs his outlook as the state’s chief executive. Gov. Inslee said he longs for more of a boating mindset to take hold in Olympia, where the state legislature is fresh off a historically long legislative year. “I often wish that guiding a budget through the legislature was as easy as

catching a summer breeze on a sailboat in Puget Sound. This year has been more like a six-month-long small craft advisory. But we need to stay the course and get things done.” The Governor was referring to the unique situation Washington finds itself in. For the first time in Washington history, there is no biennial capital budget

Willapa Bay is the second largest estuary on the West Coast and a key location both for marine life and marinerelated industries, including oyster farms. As always, pleasing all interest groups remains a balance.

lawmakers. The effort paid off with legislative champions and a Governor who put forth the funding to grow the pipeline of young tradespeople. Given that 10,000 baby boomers retire every day, this win did not come a moment too soon for those who want to get off the hard and back in the water. “Gov. Inslee gets high marks this year for his funding advocacy on behalf of high school career technical education through our skills centers. Gov. Inslee also deserves praise for putting funding and advocacy behind developing youth apprenticeships for our students at local high schools, providing core academics of math and science through skills-based training in partner-

ship with local industry,” said Jene Jones, education policy adviser for the bipartisan WBA, which is the group that is credited for shepherding this legislative win. “These apprentices earn high school credit, college credit, pay, and experience in high demand family wage careers,” Jones said. “High school graduates completing these emerging apprenticeship programs at their local school are directly employable upon high school graduation. We hope Gov. Inslee continues to support work-based learning experiences for all students as a part of the high school experience, so that all students graduate career- and college-ready.”

I recently visited Westport Yachts in Grays Harbor County ... They are supporting a lot of local jobs, making beautiful vessels right here in Washington that will go all over the world. GOVERNOR JAY INSLEE

While Jones lauded Gov. Inslee’s support of the skills centers, she emphasized that skills centers only serve a portion of the state. “Yes, the Governor should be applauded for this advocacy, but those within the maritime industry need to continue to point out that there are only 15 skills centers in the state. We will continue to press the Governor to bring this same level of public advocacy for skills centers to the career technical education programs happening in each junior high and high school across the state,” she said. “Many students cannot travel to a skills center. When we consider equity in educational opportunities, supporting our local school programs is paramount.” State Rep. Gael Tarleton was recently recognized by the WBA for her work to secure the student funding. “With this career and technical education funding, the kids are the winners,” she said. “And our state’s future as a global leader in the maritime and manufacturing jobs feels a bit more secure.” Aside from career skills, there are number of facets to boating politics that I discussed with the Governor. One thorny issue is the state’s inability to remove the commercial gillnets from the Columbia River. The Governor admits that fish politics are complex. “There are a lot of diverse perspectives on what has been done and what more needs to be done to recover imperiled fish populations,” he said. “But fish conservation is based on science and must include reductions from all human-caused limiting factors.” Chief among those factors, according to industry experts, are the gillnets that exist in the Columbia River. To that, Inslee recently collaborated with Oregon lawmakers for a solution. “The buyback (of commercial gillnet licenses) contemplated by the commissions in Oregon and Washington was not a total fleet buyback. It was to better match the number of boats with the anticipated catch; in other words, it was intended to leave an economically viable fleet,” Inslee said. The recreational fishing community has long asked Governor Inslee to push forward on this subject. Led by a coalition of recreational anglers and business associations, advocacy efforts have pivoted towards working with Oregon and Washington administrations to work together in ridding the main stem of the Columbia River of commercial gillnets. This type of fishing poses problems because it does not discriminate between endangered wild salmon and their hatchery-raised counterparts. Continued on Page 80

Rep. Gael Tarleton (Democrat - Ballard) receiving an award that recognizes her leadership in securing funding for career and technical education. She's surrounded by representatives of the Seattle Maritime Academy, Washington Business Alliance, Salish Sea Expeditions, Port of Seattle, CSR Marine (Scott Anderson, second from left), and author Peter Schrappen (center).

This coalition, led by Fish Northwest, points to a letter written by Governor Inslee that brings a fresh take on the importance of recreational fishing. In the letter, Governor Inslee encourages the Fish & Wildlife Commission “(to) consider economic factors when setting seasons” and what’s more, that he was “convinced that we can prioritize and expand fishing opportunities for the 800,000 Washingtonians who purchase fishing licenses annually…” Another important part of the advocacy effort has been the reappointment of Larry Carpenter to the Fish & Wildlife Commission. Larry’s background (as former NMTA board chair and owner of Master Marine) and willingness to speak up for recreational fishing during commission meetings made his reappointment a top priority for the sportfishing lobby. Governor Inslee took action in early August to support Carpenter’s role on the commission, which pleased many on the recreational side. Outside of boating and fishing, Gov. Inslee has used his bully pulpit to showcase Washington’s outdoor recreation economy throughout his tenure. It was three years ago that the Governor pulled together an Outdoor Recreation Task Force to help him get a better handle on the $26.2 billion economy that too often goes unnoticed because it’s predominantly composed of small businesses. The task force developed 13 recommendations, many of which were tied to improving laws and regulations

around boating and fishing. Boating’s place as the largest slice of the outdoor recreation economy helps explain why boating policy was given so much space in the task force’s final report. “I have a great appreciation for how boating in Washington state improves our economy and enhances our quality of life. I recently visited Westport Yachts in Grays Harbor County and got a tour of the facility,” the Governor said. “They are supporting a lot of local jobs, making beautiful vessels right here in Washington that will go all over the world. It was a joy to see the craftsmanship and precision of their work.” But that doesn’t mean Gov. Inslee and the boaters are always in lockstep. A proposed No Discharge Zone (NDZ) would affect boaters that have traded up for state-of-the-art Marine Sanitation Devices. Under the current NDZ plan, which would be the nation’s largest, these treatments systems would be illegal to use. The vast majority of boaters (about 99 percent) will not see a change in boating policy outside of a potential increase in policing of their heads. It’s the larger boats and the tug and barge industry that this policy would impact. The Governor and the Washington Department of Ecology have continued to push forward on this NDZ even though boating interests have advocated for targeted No Discharge Zones approach throughout Puget Sound.

“It is very clear that those that live, work, and play on Puget Sound are extremely committed to its health and resiliency,” he said. “Our maritime community are leaders in innovation, sustainability, and best practices. We know that the maritime industry is a willing partner in our efforts to restore and protect Puget Sound. One of the many ways we can protect Puget Sound waters is through an NDZ under the Clean Water Act and is included in the Action Agenda set forth by the Puget Sound Partnership as a part of the ongoing efforts to restore and protect Puget Sound." The Department of Ecology has engaged with the boating and maritime community over several years to find the right path toward implementing an NDZ for Puget Sound. Going forward, Ecology is now engaging in a formal rule-making process that will get even more feedback from the public and direct stakeholders.” But the maritime industry and users have disagreed on this subject. “The NDZ continues to move forward with what we see as questionable science and faulty data, and without incorporating proposals from those who spend significant portions of their lives on the water,” said Recreational Boating Association of Washington (RBAW) President Wayne Gilham, who has been involved in the NDZ discussions for several years. “Boaters are environmentalists, and we work collaboratively and effectively with the Continued on Page 82

Commercial gillnetting in river mouths, like the Columbia River, is a controversial subject. Unlike other practices, gillnetting cannot selectively fish hatchery stock.

Governor and his agencies on issues like derelict vessel removals, boater education and enforcement, and heightened efforts to prevent the spread of aquatic invasive species. Recreational boaters are committed to outcomes that ensure clean water and a healthy environment, but we think there are better and more effective ways to get there than a Puget Sound-wide NDZ designation." The NDZ is on the path to become a new regulation. Washington’s Department of Ecology will begin formal rule-making soon, and boaters will have a chance to make their voices heard. However, those who have been involved in the process are doubtful that this advocacy will amount to anything. As with any relationship, it’s worth reiterating that there are areas of agree-

ment and disagreement. Washington state has a lot of momentum when it comes to boating, boating businesses, and boating leadership. Could the state assert itself with even more boating-friendly policies? Certainly, there’s work left to do to make Washington even friendlier to boats. Looking at other states and the success they have had with keeping boats in the state versus driving them away, boaters can see how more needs to be done. Fortunately, Washington has a governor that knows the difference between a chart and a map, which is always an enviable position to begin discussions around the mantra that “boating means business.” A track record of working with the Governor and significant members of his staff all bode well for future collaboration between Olympia and the Washington boating community.

As the Governor wrapped up the interview, he said, “I know there are many, many beautiful places throughout our state that can only be enjoyed from a boat.” I’m not certain how many of Governor Inslee’s 20 predecessors have had that keen understanding.

Afloat for Now Boats Afloat 2017: What’s Next?


The annual Lake Union Boats Afloat Show of Seattle has been a local boating industry mainstay for 39 years. Business is booming, but land development plans bode ill for the event. B y N o r r i s C O M ER Many notable events happened 39 years ago. In 1978, John Wayne and Barbra Streisand won the People’s Choice Awards, Leon Spinks beat Muhammad Ali for the heavyweight boxing title (and then was trounced by Ali in a rematch later that year), and NASA announced its first female astronauts. Among these remarkable events was the inaugural Boats Afloat Show in Seattle, then hosted in Shilshole Bay Marina. Now in Chandler’s Cove in South Lake Union, the show has evolved into one of the Pacific Northwest’s notable boat shows and is one of the largest, if not the largest, in-water boat show of the West Coast. Organized by the Northwest Yacht Brokers Association (NYBA), Boats Afloat 2017 is on just about every Pacific Northwest boater’s calendar (September 14 to 17 this year). Housed entirely within the cove, the show serves as a one-stop shop for many buyers who can compare their dream builds side-by-side while the boats are in the water where they belong. This year promises to be a big one, for the sustained upswing in the economy seems to be affecting the boat show’s offerings with many exciting developments. “Not only is it shaping up to be the biggest show we’ve had in years, but it’ll also feature the largest boat we’ve


had in the show’s history,” says Bonnie Robertson, Executive Director of NYBA and lead organizer of Boats Afloat. “Also notable are the large number of models and brands making their West Coast debuts. There is a lot to keep show-goers interested.” The numbers back up Robertson’s optimism, for reportedly over 200 new and used boats are slated to be on display for the 2017 show. A few notable debuts include the Alexander Marine USA’s West Coast debut of the 2018 53’ Tiara Flybridge, the line’s flagship model, and first Boats Afloat appearance of California Coast Yachts, which recently opened up their new Seattle branch. The builder Four Winns has returned to Seattle through dealer Marine Servicenter after about a decade of absence, and they are touting their Vista 375 Express Cruiser (“one half speed boat and the other a cruiser”). Cutwater Boats, a local builder of note, is slated to have their full lineup on display, including their 302 Coupe and 242 Coupe. Also local, Ranger Tugs promises to show many of their new builds. Dealer Hampton Yachts’ new Hampton 650 Pilothouse and dealer Premiere Yachts’ new 2018 Regency P65 MY builds round out the larger end of the motoryacht scale.

rides showcased through local dealer JK3 Yachts, including the Axopar 28 TT and Axopar 37 AC. Fans of luxury sport yachts may gravitate to the Silver Seas Yachts slips, for they are showcasing their 2018 Maritimo 54 and 59, as well as the 2018 Cruisers 50 Cantius. On the sailboat side of things, it looks like European production boats largely rule the roost. JK3 Yachts is showing the popular Moody 54 Deck Saloon as well Hanse builds like the Hanse 315 and 415. Marine Servicenter has a range of Jeanneau yachts (349, 419, 44DS, and 479) while Signature Yachts showcases several Beneteau sailboats and a sailing catamaran, a Fountaine Pajot. Of course, pontoon boats, ski boats, and more are on display as well. This year features a four-day format, a leaner version of the traditional five-day format that Boats Afloat usually utilizes. It’s also worth noting that Boats Afloat isn’t the kind of show that only appeals to die-hard boat nerds. “The Boats Afloat Show is fun for the whole family!” says Robertson about the show. “Families can take a free sailboat or electric boat ride around Lake Union, kids can join The Center for Wooden Boats (CWB) for toy boat building, adults can partake in seminars, adult sailing lessons, and women’s docking clinics. Plus, with South Lake Union’s rapidly expanding scene of great restaurants and amenities, this is an ideal way to spend a day as a family.” In true Boats Afloat fashion, Chandler’s Cove promises to be a floating city of new builds, outdoor activities, and exhibitors. But a storm cloud is brewing over the idyllic picture Robertson paints of dad’s head buried in the engine room of his dream boat, mom acing her docking workshop, and the two kids building toy boats at CWB. Earlier this year in Northwest Yachting’s January, 2017 issue, we published a

story (Changes to Chandler’s Cove) about how Vulcan Real Estate, the estate holder of the Chandler’s Cove property, has announced plans to develop the area and evict the current tenants there. Tenants ranging from yacht brokers like Chuck Hovey Yachts and Emerald Pacific Yachts, and other marine-related business like Canderè Cruising (a boat tour company) and Duke’s Chowder Hourse, will be affected by the eviction. While details of the development remain elusive, a letter sent to tenants announcing the company’s intent states that Vulcan is “under the working assumption that the earliest redevelopment can begin is during the 3rd Quarter of 2018.” (To read the complete letter, feel free to reference the article Changes to Chandler’s Cove at

What does this mean for the Lake Union Boats Afloat show? Is there going to be another one? “The redevelopment of Chandler ’s Cove is eminent. As it stands, the timeline for construction has not been announced,” says Robertson. “We are guaranteed to put on the Boats Afloat Show here in 2018, but after that is anybody’s guess.” Despite the guarantee that the Boats Afloat Show will see its 40th birthday, the decision to evict the boating industry tenants of Chandler’s Cove appears to be an example of Seattle’s maritime scene taking a hit as the city experiences growing pains. According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s July 1, 2016 estimate, Seattle stands as the fastest growing city in the United States. Although specific details Continued on Page 88

Delivering over 200 boats to the show is quite the logistical operation, as is the art of getting them all docked properly. Brokers often need to get creative with anchors off the bow to back onto the dock for visitor access, pictured here from the 2016 Boats Afloat Show.

about the development is still under wraps, and, while perhaps it’s unfair to assume, it’s difficult for the mind not to prepare for a now-common Seattle term: high-end housing. To exercise the imagination further, perhaps high-end housing for tech industry executives? Time will tell, but the loss of Chandler ’s Cove as a publically accessible aquatic-activity epicenter right in the center of the city would be a bitter pill to swallow for the Seattle maritime community and general public. After all, Chandler ’s Cove is named after the term chandlery, a word used to describe a boat specialty store.

Another more dramatic tack would be to move out of Seattle altogether. If Seattle evolves to be less marine friendly, other nearby locations will likely emerge as the Washington boating capital by default. Other Puget Sound boat shows have experimented with new venues, notably Trawlerfest 2017. Trawlerfest, traditionally hosted in Anacortes, was hosted in Bremerton for the first time this year. Will places like Bremerton that are usually considered more off-the-beaten-path gain prominence as boat show locations in the near future? The time ticks by and soon the bell will ring, yet many of the same questions stand. When the round is over, who will be left

We are currently looking at all of our options, but one thing for sure is that the Boats Afloat Show will continue to go on for years. For now at least, we can enjoy 2017’s show. We can walk aboard the many boats, take advantage of the growing array of different activities, and experiment with the new four-day format. Fortunately, we can be assured that the 40th iteration of 2018 is on the books and prepare accordingly. However, sooner or later, Boats Afloat will have to move or die. What then? “We are currently looking at all of our options, but one thing for sure is that the Boats Afloat Show will continue to go on for years,” says Robertson. We will find a way appears to be the sentiment thus far. Keep in mind, the show did have its beginnings in Shilshole Bay Marina. Perhaps the “Lake Union Boats Afloat Show” will become the “Shilshole Bay Boats Afloat Show”?

The idea is to add a layer of accountability and credibility to the industry for the benefit of both marine professionals and customers. NYBA helped form the Certified Professional Yacht Brokers program, now a nationally accredited program comprised of brokers around the country and Canada. “The organization feels like family,” says Bonnie Robertson, Executive Director of NYBA. “Many of its members have been involved since its inception.” NYBA is also involved in local Grow Boating initiatives through grant programs that support youth and adult boating programs. “We want to help everyone get access to the water,” says Robertson.

Bringing a bike aboard while cruising the San Juan Islands offers a whole new world of adventure. By: Greg Van Belle


Cruising the San Juan Islands on your own boat allows you to glimpse parts of the archipelago most tourists will never see. The uninhabited islands, the narrow passes, the quiet coves, and sea life beyond the ferry routes are what make the islands such a special destination. However, most of us barely let our feet dry out on land long enough to see the islands beyond the marinas and resorts. Arriving by boat, we stick to the water, and unless an attraction is a quick walk from the harbormaster’s office, we tend not to see it. As I walked around the village at Roche Harbor recently, a group of cyclists whipped past me on their way south toward Friday Harbor. I’ve always wanted to tour the islands by bike, but the idea of taking the ferry, finding a place to stay, and planning the route kept me from pursuing it. If I’m going to the islands I want to be on my boat, after all. Besides, bikes on rooftop racks trigger an over-height charge on the ferries. What a hassle. Wandering back down to the boat, I pause to admire a beautiful old Grand Banks. It took me a minute to notice the bicycles lashed to the pulpit. Of course! Why this hadn’t occurred to me sooner is a mystery. We drag our paddleboards, kayaks, dinghies, and fishing gear with us everywhere we go. Why not bring the bikes? Carrying a bike aboard opens up every corner of every island. It removes your reliance on public transportation and gives you access to what life on the islands really looks look for the locals, most of whom don’t live on the water. Beyond the marinas and waterfront towns, the San Juans quickly show their true face: quiet, rural, and slow-paced. There is no better way to explore than by bicycle. Riding the islands can seem pastoral and relaxing, but remember that the San Juans are the peaks of mountains, and the terrain can be hilly and challenging. Roads tend to be narrow and winding, often with limited visibility around curves and through trees. The good news is that locals tend not to be in a hurry and most drivers are used to cyclists on the roads. Sure,


you can ride on the ferries. Sure, you can rent a bike for an afternoon. But why not give yourself the freedom to take off whenever you want, for as long as you want? A good road bike is fine for most of the riding you will do on the major islands, but a mountain bike or cross bike expands your access to more terrain. On the smaller islands you will encounter unpaved roads, trails, and rough old roads. As much as I like going fast on my road bike, the islands generally call for a bike that will do it all.

SAN JUAN ISLAND San Juan Island is known to most boaters for the allure of a stop at Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor, and for good reason. But the rest of the island is worth taking the time to explore. A trip on two wheels gets you beyond the throngs of tourists, the ice cream shops, and the ferry traffic, and a fit cyclist can see the whole island in an afternoon. From Friday Harbor, it is a quick 10-mile ride north to Roche Harbor, and along the way you pass the San Juan Vineyard (and neighboring Mona, the dromedary camel) and several parks worth a short stop. From Roche Harbor, ride south to British Camp for the first stop on the Pig War history tour. Stay on Westside Road to get to Lime Kiln Point where you watch other boaters struggle through the tide rips, which I find more entertaining than whale watching (the reason why everyone else is usually there). Ride back across the island and south toward Cattle Point. Visit stop number two on the Pig War history tour at American Camp, and watch even more boaters struggle with the tide rips in Cattle Pass. Pedal back north to Friday Harbor and you’ve earned that ice cream cone. Since you are never far from the water as you ride around the island, you are rewarded with stunning views and perspectives of the

No, I won’t tell you where it is. Friday Harbor has two excellent bike shops for buying gear or getting repairs done.

with anything you need from their location on Web Street.

LOPEZ ISLAND Riding Lopez Island is a dream: mostly low and rolling terrain, good roads, and tons of roadside attractions to serve as rest stops. The locals here are as friendly as anyone you will meet anywhere, and you will find yourself a little exhausted from waving back to every motorist who passes you while you are riding. If you’ve come to Lopez by boat, chances are your first landing is in Fisherman Bay. From here it is a quick ride north to Upright Channel Park, Odlin Park, the ferry landing, and Lopez Island Vineyards. Across the island, take the time to visit Spencer Spit in an entirely new way. In the center of the island you will find Lopez Hill, with winding mountain bike trails tucked into the 400-acre site. Head all the way south to Point Colville or Iceberg Point, once again seeing the approaches to the San Juans from a different perspective. Keep your panniers empty so you can load up on produce at the many roadside stands around the island, and take your time exploring the back roads of Lopez. On my last ride on Lopez I was greeted by a local farmer as I paused to check my map. He invited me up to the house for a cold beverage and he regaled me with stories of growing up on the island. You don’t get that sort of thing hanging out at the marina or driving by in your car. Village Cycles handles sales, rentals, and service and the staff knows every road, trail, and route on the island.

ORCAS ISLAND The ultimate ride in the San Juans is the road to the summit of Mount Constitution in Moran State Park. This is the highest point in the islands at 2,400 feet above sea level and the view is, not surprisingly, spectacular. For mountain bikers, this is the place to be. The climb to the summit and the descent can be done on trails that

switchback the side of the mountain. In the off-season (after September 15), many of the dedicated hiking trails are open to cyclists. It would not be unreasonable to spend all day riding in Moran State Park. Your best and easiest access to the park is from Rosario Resort, but it is also reachable from the town of Eastsound. But Orcas has a lot more to offer than just Moran State Park. The side roads connecting the various sites on the island are hilly and sometimes unpaved, but you can easily avoid the crush of traffic coming and going from the ferry terminal on the main roads. Except for Olga Road from Eastsound to Rosario, side roads will get you anywhere you want to go on the island. Be prepared. Orcas is huge, and the terrain is steep. From Deer Harbor to Doe Bay it is over 22 miles one way, and most of it is challenging, but beautiful, riding. Orcas truly requires at least two days to fully enjoy on a bike. Spend one day cruising the roads and visiting Deer Harbor, West Sound, and Eastsound. Another day will give you a good sense of the area around Moran State Park. Don’t short change yourself here. Stay awhile. If you need anything for your ride, Wildlife Cycles in Eastsound will set you up.

SHAW ISLAND Shaw Island is the smallest of the islands served by the ferry service, and tourists often skip it completely. The lack of amenities for visiting boaters makes it a little more challenging to explore by boat and bike, but it is worth the effort for the quick ride on this very peaceful island. You’ll need a dinghy capable of carrying you and your ride to shore, as there are no dock facilities here. From anchorages in Blind Bay or Indian Cove, the island’s 12 miles of roads are all yours. Ride to the ferry landing and visit the Shaw General Store. You won’t be disappointed in ambience or the ice cream. The beach at Indian Cove has the warmest swimming water in Continued on Page 94

Easier rides bring lots of great sights, like the San Juan Island Lighthouse; Cypress and Orcas Islands have miles of more difficult trails with gripping descents.



On large boats, transporting a bicycle or two is not a challenge. Those of us cruising on smaller boats must be creative. Short of a folding bicycle that can fit below, transporting a bike onboard usually means lashing it to a rail, swim step, or coach roof. I ran into a couple in Port Ludlow who had fork mounts installed in the cockpit of their C-Dory. This very slick idea for hauling bikes, unfortunately, came to them too late. While crossing the Straits of Juan de Fuca last year, they got caught in a rip, took a large wave over the bow, and lost one of their rides to the sea. With that in mind, here are some tips for stowing your two-wheeler aboard and riding from your boat: • If possible, store your bike below decks when making passages. • A simple soft-sided bike storage bag will pay for itself quickly. Break the bike down by removing wheels, seat, and handlebars and it will easily stow in a locker or quarter berth. • On deck or below decks, lash your bike down. You never know when you’ll hit rough seas and you don’t want things bashing around in the waves. • Keep your bike off the bow or side rails if possible. Waves and spray will do a number on your components. • Immediately rinse off any salt spray when you get to your destination, and re-lube your components. • Be extra cautious when loading a bike into a dinghy. Consider lashing a PFD to the frame in case she goes overboard in the process. • Lock your bikes to the boat! Marinas are typically safe and well-secured, but it would not be hard for someone to lift your unlocked bike while you were getting coffee in town. • Carry tools. Your boat-specific tool kit likely doesn’t have the hex wrenches and other specialty tools needed to work on a bike onboard. • Carry spares. There are great bike shops on the major islands, but as you get farther afield, the chances of finding the tube or cable you need decrease significantly. • Install racks and paniers. This is touring, not racing. You’ll want to be able to carry a camera, some tools, and maybe a picnic lunch with you. More importantly, you will want room to carry the treasures you buy at roadside stands and in the small villages you visit. • Carry printed maps. Sure, we all have smart phones with great maps and GPS, but coverage in the islands is spotty.

the islands, so leave time for a cooldown before heading back to the boat. If you are moored at another island and want to visit Shaw, you can ride on the inter-island ferry, explore to your heart’s content, and head back on the ferry when you are done.

Other ISLANDs The value of carrying your bike onboard is truly realized when you get to the islands that aren’t served by the ferry. A mountain bike is the right call for exploring the smaller islands, as most roads are not paved and the terrain can be rough (and fun). Some of the finest riding is on Cypress Island, just minutes from Anacortes. Old logging roads lead into the interior of the island from Pelican Beach and Eagle Harbor. Landing your skiff with a bike aboard is a challenge, but from there it is glorious. The climbs are strenuous and the descents gripping. Side trails lead to scenic viewpoints and lakes. The undeveloped island gives you a window into what the early settlers must have seen when they arrived here: rugged, untamed, and beautiful landscape. A mountain bike will get you around Stuart Island as well. Dirt roads lead away from the park docks in Reid and Prevost Harbors. Visit the one-room schoolhouse, museum, and Turn Point lighthouse. There aren’t miles and miles of road and trails here, and it isn’t the place to bomb around turns, but riding here is very pleasant. Continued on Page 107

Dog Days of Summer Words: Doug Hansen // Photos: Jan Anderson Often imitated, never duplicated, summer in the Pacific Northwest stands out as one of Seattle’s best kept secrets, right up there with Discovery Park and Rainer beer. This is especially true when you add sailboat racing into the mix. Now that it’s September, most Seattle sailors are finishing up their weekly sailing events and looking forward to racing weekends. With the summer nearly over, my fiance Shelagh and I look back fondly at the regattas that booked our weeknights during the glorious sunburnt season. Monday kicks off the week with Sloop Tavern Yacht Club’s Ballard Cup. This summer we’ve

been racing on board Brian Rhodes’ J/80 Crazy Ivan. Now a cornerstone of the weeknight calendar, the come-as-you-are race attracts dozens of boats in all shapes and sizes giving everyone something to enjoy. On Tuesday, we split up, with Shelagh heading to Duck Dodge with the dialedin crew of Absolutely, normally seen leading the way around the course as well as the raft-up, and me heading to Leschi for racing in the 20 plus-strong J/24 fleet. Wednesday takes us back to the saltwater with more J/80 racing in the growing one-design start hosted by Corinthian Yacht Club of Seattle. The Wednesday Evening Series showcases the dominance

of the growing one-design fleets with the J/105s always making an impressive roll call and the Melges 24s dialing up for their North American Championships down south in the Columbia Gorge. Our Thursday evenings are spent on Elliott Bay taking part in the Downtown Sailing Series aboard the Transpac 52 Smoke, helping to stack the rail with a minimum of 25 friends and family. This event has come into its own as an alternative to the chaos and potential catastrophe that Duck Dodge brings to larger boats and gives all participants a fun atmosphere, which of course concludes with hotdogs, beer, and live music on the lawn overlooking the ma-

rina. Special thanks to this very magazine, for Northwest Yachting magazine is one of the sponsors of the series. Friday wraps up the week with a mad dash from work which normally takes us to either a regatta or this time of year most likely a wedding. As the summer weeknight series slow down, racers can look forward to more free time after work, but must wave goodbye to their weekends. This fall brings with it a laundry list of racing all over the Pacific Northwest. Things kick off with the Pacific International Ton Championships, better known as PITCH, in Bellingham Bay. Hosted by the Bellingham Yacht Club on Labor Day weekend for over 30 years, PITCH offers a weekend of short course buoy racing to keel boats of all shapes and sizes. Also in September (14 through the 20), the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club will host the Six Metre World Cup. One of the most prestigious classes on the planet, the boats will race in two fleets of Moderns and Classics with all yachts conforming to the six-meter length overall measurement rule. This event is attracting big names such as King Felipe of Spain and Dennis Conner of the Pacific Northwest in what is sure to be one of the most impressive regattas of the year. With warm-up racing taking place throughout the summer as boats arrive from all over the world, the stage has been set for a truly amazing event. With the end of summer in sight and the weather finally beginning to cool off, it is strange to say that it’s nearly sailing season again.

The Great Bend Words & Photos: Norris Comer One has only to glance at a chart of Puget Sound to sense that the twisting tentacles of blue waterways translate to near-endless boating opportunities. Perhaps the most twisted, bluest tentacle of them all is Hood Canal, a glacially formed fjord that fishhooks between the mainland of the Olympic Peninsula to the west and the Kitsap Peninsula to the east. Steeped in Native American culture, rural Peninsula charm, and a world-class natural setting flush with fishing opportunities, the Hood Canal beyond the Great Bend is its own world. Fascinating is often an overused term, but the word applies aptly to the area. Did you know that the U.S. Navy stations nuclear submarines within the depths of the many internal bays of the Canal? Or that the Hood Canal Bridge (officially the William A. Bugge Bridge) that straddles the fjord is one of the largest saltwater floating drawbridges in the world? Throw in famous oyster farms like the Hama Hama Oyster Company and the proximity to the singular Olympic National Park, and fascinating fits quite nicely. Among the smatterings of state park beaches and sleepy small towns, most with public boat docks and bait shops, stands the Alderbrook Resort & Spa. Alderbrook has plenty of offerings for boaters, especially in the summer months. Live bands serenade the outdoor waterfront bar, couples hold hands on lounge chairs by fire pits, and cruisers tie up to the marina as the sun sets over the pine trees. The Alderbrook hub is a busy, lawn-partying, cocktail-slinging, golf club- swinging beacon in a sea of quiet, polite-but-keepto-themselves communities and huge swaths of nature. Hood Canal was made for boaters, a green-blue waterway created by nature, not man, with an average width of about 1.5 miles and a mean depth of around 180 feet. As a boater enters the canal from the north, he or she will pass Tala Point (to starboard) and Foulweather Bluff (to port) and cruise south for about 50 miles before the fjord bends to the Northeast (The Great Bend). The Hood Canal Bridge is the main complication for boaters navigating the fjord, but it is legally required to open for boats. Simply call ahead at 360779-3233 to request a time and give them at least an hour of leeway (more info is available at Additionally, stay clear of any Navy maneuvers that you may encounter. Besides that, the protected conditions beyond the Great Bend of the Hood Canal are often glassy and windless, perfect for motorboats and less so for sailors with a need for speed. Like just about everywhere in Puget Sound, it’s best to be mindful of the tides, for they can rip through narrow passes. The water gets shallow toward the end of the canal, so exercise caution.



1. Never-ending Activities The Alderbrook Resort & Spa, with its generous dock space and many things to do, is a boater’s magnet tucked near Union, Washington beyond the Great Bend. Events book up almost every hour of the day, including morning yoga, live music at the outdoor bar, watercolor painting classes, paddleboarding, and geocaching (just to name a few). The itineraries include activities for all ages, including Canal Cinema outdoor movie screenings. What’s more, volleyball courts, open lawn spaces, a pool, and more are on the premises. Of course, complete spa experiences are available as well, per the name of the place. There’s always something going on at the resort, and boating visitors are more than welcome. Maybe you’ll want to sit on the grass and watch the ships go by with a glass of local wine in hand? No itinerary required.

2. Hit the Links There’s more to the Alderbrook than the area immediately by the marina, and if you want to stretch your legs in the woods or on the golf course, head inland. Hop on a shuttle from the lobby with your clubs and head up the hill to the award-winning Alderbrook Golf & Yacht Club. The driving range, pro shop, putting green, cart rentals, etc. are open to the public and may be just the thing after a long day on the water. Even if you’re not a golf fan, the clubhouse is a great hangout space. If you’re feeling especially full of energy, you can walk up the hill via a scenic system of nature trails. Check out for details.

3. Stay a While Alderbrook is a resort, so why not stay a while? The resort is loaded with luxury rooms and private cottages for romantic couple stays or for the whole family. With its pool, fitness center, sauna and steam room, as well as open green grounds, there are plenty of opportunities to get active. Guest fire pit areas, pet-friendly accommodations, and a never-ending lineup of events and activities should appeal to just about everyone. The local shuttle service is another boon if one wants to explore the area, like the nearby town of Union. Check out for more details.

4. Surprises Everywhere Part of the fun of exploring Hood Canal is the array of places and communities that define the place. The Skokomish Reservation and small town of Union lie on the south side of the Great Bend, both one-of-a-kind communities. Just cruising along the shore can yield adorable little inns, scenic views, wildlife, tucked-away businesses, etc. Take it easy and take it all in, you’re on a boat in a Pacific Northwest fjord, after all.

5. Hit the Beach If all you want to do is pull up in the boat and enjoy some sand, your best bet beyond the Great Bend is probably Twanoh State Park. Known for its warm saltwater swimming thanks to the shallow water off the beach, this is a popular location for both visitors and locals alike. Boaters will appreciate the 200 feet of moorage space on the public dock, and a boat ramp is also on the premises. The amenities are Depression-era Conservation Corps brick structures that include picnic shelters and bathrooms. Fire circles, a badminton court, horse shoe pit, volleyball field, nature trails, camp sites, and plenty of sandy beach makes Twanoh State Park a natural gathering spot.

6. Bait the Hook

Hood Canal

North Shore, the area on the north side of the canal beyond the Great Bend, is about as quiet and mind-your-own-business as it gets. However, speckled among the shorefront properties are public boat ramps and docks ripe for a visiting boater’s use. If you’re in need of bait, ice, or a six-pack of Rainier tallboys (to consume reDONATED BOATS FOR SALE! sponsibly), a quick stop to Allyn or Tahuya may just be what you need.

“Guys are catching 20-pounders, just trolling up and down the canal,” Dove said with excitement. Chinook, chum, coho, and pink are all in most angler’s crosshairs, with coastal cutthroat trout and flatfish also being popular. On the invertebrate side of things, spot prawns, Dungeness crab, and Pacific oysters add to the seafood bonanza. Check out to stay in the know with regards to regulations and plan your feast!

Many boaters choose the Hood Canal as their seasonal fishing grounds for good reason. Known as Marine Area 12 (all waters south of the Hood Canal Bridge), the name of the game is often salmon. A local, who goes by the name Dove, gave a glowing report of the summer 2017 salmon season.

Beyond The Bend Gastro: Alderbrook Resort & Spa The undeniable culinary king of the area is the restaurant within the Alderbrook Resort & Spa, an upscale Pacific Northwest-themed dining experience with top-notch local ingredients, notably the seafood. If it’s offered during your visit, I highly recommend spoiling yourself with the choose-your-own four-course meal ($69) with wine pairings ($28 more). The meal I enjoyed was a chance for Executive Chef Joshua Delgado to truly flex his muscles, from “field” (heirloom tomatoes with herb pistou, balsamic syrup, and marinated mozzarella), “sea” (Washington salmon with Yukon potatoes and smoke salmon croquette, rainbow chard, and huckleberry butter), “land” (rib eye steak with roasted mushrooms), and “sweet” (the chocolate Napoleon with hazelnut meringue). Local wine pairings included flavors like the Mosquito Fleet “Portside” red blend from the Columbia Valley. Word to the wise, have a light lunch, work up an appetite, tuck away the boat for the night, and set aside an hour or so to enjoy properly. You won’t regret it.

“The love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson

E Dan Kaseler Dan Kaseler is the owner and founder of Raptor Deck and lifetime lover of water and wind sports. “I was quite involved in product development for boardsports markets with Naish, Gaastra, and finally Avanti. We developed a number of important innovations and products for windsurfing and helped develop and put kiteboarding on the map,” says Kaseler. “I also found myself working in the greater sailmaking markets, and larger marine business on many projects, from Quantum Sails to Velocitek. My history really revolved around product development for anything that sailed. Raptor Deck sprung from that unique background.”


ven a well-found vessel needs some attention to deck comfort and aesthetics. The ubiquitous cream white deck of most boats often leaves one in want, for to sit or walk barefoot on the unforgiving surface can be the very definition of uncomfortable. In many ways, the rise of adhering soft-foam panels for decks should not be a surprise to anyone. Not only do these panels tend to pop with warm colors, but most of them provide additional comfort underfoot and grip when wet. To an increasingly large number of boaters pondering soft foam paneling, the question is not “why” but “why not?” Raptor Deck is a Seattle-based company gaining traction both locally and abroad, notably on the sailboat racing circuit. Raptor Deck soft foam, non-skid paneling makes regular appearances at the Melges 24 World Championships, as well as locally. For those familiar with the Pacific Northwest racing circuits, John Buchan’s TP52 race-winner Glory currently boasts a Raptor Deck cockpit. I interviewed Dan Kaseler, owner and founder of Raptor Deck and an avid wind and water sports enthusiast, about Raptor Deck and soft foam, non-skid paneling in general. I caught up to him at the end of a job in Elliott

Bay Marina where he was installing panels on the swim step of a Bayliner motoryacht on a warm summer day. Q: What is unique about Raptor Deck? Explain what exactly it is and why boaters should consider it. Raptor Deck is a unique soft foam, non-skid paneling solution, and there are several brands competing in this market space now. Everyone is after the same attributes: durability, comfort, and good traction. There are also lots of side benefits to soft foam, non-skid paneling, like insulation, noise reduction, and condensation block. With a soft deck, dropping a Leatherman is no big deal, and the overall comfort of having a bit of give to your floor is huge. To do it right, you need to focus on the foam recipe itself. These foams are normally combinations of PE (polyethylene) and EVA (ethylene vinyl acetate) resin. It’s not as easy as it looks. Pitfalls can be poor lamination, second-grade adhesive, heat shrink, UV degradation, and general durability. We’ve put a lot of effort over the last several years into making sure our customers get the best product we can deliver. We’ve done a lot of

testing on-site and in the UV box at Cascade Tek to get to where we are now. Q: Are there specific applications or types of boats that make up most of your clientele? Sport fishermen? Sailors? Our first breakthrough was in the sailing market. We build deck kits for a lot of top racing teams from around the world. We literally ship internationally every week. Those guys really value the grip and the super lightweight aspect of what we are doing. From there, we started picking up lots of wake-surf crew, and the medium-sized cruisers followed right afterward. From dinghies to sport fishing customers, to large carbon racing yachts, we have done it all, and the market continues to grow. I am not exactly sure where the product tops out. If you have a big, beautiful, real teak deck, by all means stick with it. That said, if you have an older gel-coated craft, or an aluminum boat, give us a ring, and we can give you a terrific upgrade. Q: Walk us through the process, from signing the dotted line to finished product. We work in a few different ways. The most basic level is the full DIY

With a soft deck, dropping a Leatherman is no big deal, and the overall comfort of having a bit of give to your floor is huge.

customer. Some people want to do it themselves, and to support that niche, we sell blank sheets and some set-step sizes which can be chopped up with a utility knife. The best place to pick these up in the Northwest is Fisheries Supply. The next level is the customer that wants a kit, and is willing to send us a pattern, and likely do their own install. This is our biggest segment. The final group is the guys who want the full turnkey deal. For those customers, we do the patterning and the install as well. Let’s talk about that second level, as that’s the bulk of how we operate. When these customers contact us, if we don’t have a pattern already in the database for their boat type, we instruct them briefly on how to build us a film template, or pattern of the swim step, or areas that they want to upgrade. Once a pattern has been pulled, and we receive it at our Ballard location, we digitize the physical patterns to get the data into Rhino, our CAD (computer-aided design) software. At this point, as we know the complexity and the material usage, we can nail down the quoted price to the penny, and send a PDF proof to the end consumer. Upon approval, we fire up the CNC (computer numerical control) router, and cut the custom parts that comprise a deck kit. Q: What's involved in the application process, how does it work? Everything we do is peel and stick. That’s one of the huge benefits of these systems. The smoother the surface, the better the adhesion, but with good acrylic-based PSA (pressure sensitive adhesion) from the 3M Company, it is possible to stick over some pretty aggressive existing textures. For application, it’s a matter of dry fitting the pads, making a few true up marks, and sticking the panels down from the center towards the edges to minimize trapped air. We also advise customers to press the pads down aggressively on install to get the best bond possible. A twoinch J roller can be great for this purpose, but is not imperative. Q: Is there anything a potential client can do to make a job run more smoothly? If you make us a perfect pattern, you will get a perfect kit. It’s not hard, but taking a little extra time at the patterning step pays a huge reward in fit and finish.

Get us to build you a few smaller panels to check us out. You’ll be back for more! Q: You mentioned the Raptor "recipe." You probably can't give away trade secrets, but what's special about your secret sauce? Soft deck foam and is typically either made from PE or EVA resin. They can be one or the other, or a combination of the two. You can use UV inhibitors, and other additives to modify the characteristics. There are some variations in the process of blowing the foam that also have an effect. I certainly can’t go into specifics. We have a few competitors out there doing a good job with their foam, whereas some are really terrible, so it’s important to do your homework as a consumer. We do a lot of testing here at Raptor, and our product shows that commitment. Q: What's on the horizon for Raptor Deck? This season, we are not launching any radically new products. We will have some new colors in the works. Q: What are your favorite types of jobs to do? We essentially make custom products in a production environment. In some ways, from a business model perspective, we are like a fancy sign shop. No two jobs are really the same, even within the one-design boats. The most difficult requests from our customers are usually the most fun. Give us a tricky one. We like the challenge.

Raptor Deck Raptor Deck is a growing Seattle-based business devoted to soft foam, non-skid solutions for all recreational boats from high performing sailboats to motoryachts. The first Raptor Deck was made from surfboard stomp pad material glued into the cockpit of owner Dan Kaseler’s Melges 24 sailboat. “At that time, we weren’t looking to start a business, but I had a bunch of EVA foam lying around that we had been using on windsurfing kits for foot pads. Our cockpit was super slippery when wet, so we used what we had, and thus made our first boat and public appearance at the Melges 24 Worlds in Corpus Christi in 2011. It was only a few months before we were getting requests for Melges kits from all over the world. From there, we branched out, made it a proper business, and started building kits for more or less anything that floated.” Raptor Deck has come a long way since 2011 and is now often booked up with custom jobs of all kinds. Feel free to inquire if interested. // 707-278-6749

Installations require precise placement. Every panel has to lay perfectly flat.



Kevin’s Catch By Kevin Klein

Continued from Page 63

pushing 20 pounds doesn’t mean it’s a king. There are good reference materials available from fish agencies, in tackle shops, or online. Keep one of these on your vessel and familiarize yourself with it. Albacore tuna and other pelagic species should be rockin’ and rollin’ off the coast from Northern California to Vancouver Island. Sometimes September can be great for catching these fish and with good weather, too. Nothing better than canning fresh albacore caught on Saturday

while watching the Seahawks on Sunday! Some tuna sashimi with a little soy and wasabi hits the spot at half-time. Or, if you’re not able to get out in the ocean, crab may still be available for harvest in some locations. I’m starting to get lots of good appetizer ideas for football season... Summer may be taking its curtain call this month, but the fish will still be putting on a show, and getting put on a Ritz (cracker that is). Until next month, “Go Seahawks,” “Go Cougs,” and let’s go get some!

Kevin’s Pick: Enticing salmon to strike in the saltwater is all about getting the right action from your lure. Silver Horde spoons are the some of the best at using action to produce fish. This local company uses on-the-water research and development to keep coming up with new advancements in color, size, and shape in their trolling spoons. Whether it’s the Kingfisher lite, Coho Killer, Tailwagger, or TwoFaced spoons, they all match the specific baitfish you’ll find salmon feeding on. You can find Silver Horde products at almost all stores that carry fishing gear in the Northwest. Go to to check out the full lineup.

Views like this one from Lopez Island await cyclists at every turn.

Continued from Page 94

Decatur Island is private with little public access to its roads. The locals love the privacy, but it is a shame to pass on exploring the island with two wheels if you get the chance. Landing your skiff at the boat launch at the south end of the bay behind Decatur Head is your best access to the steep and quiet roads of Decatur. Don’t expect the hospitality or services of the other islands. All you will get is dirt roads and solitude here.

Worth it. Carry spares. There are no shops of any kind on the island. Guemes Island doesn’t have much in the way of boat access, but the flat, rural island does have some great cycling. The best bet for accessing the quiet roads of Guemes is to moor at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes and ride onto the ferry that zips back and forth across the channel. The fare for a cyclist is five dollars, which is well worth the price to visit an

island most boaters overlook. Anywhere you can legally beach your dinghy or tie to a dock in the San Juans will provide you with cycling opportunities. Bring your ride and explore!

Riding Safety

Of course, basic bike safety should be observed at all times. But riding on the Islands requires a few reminders and some emphasis: • Be seen. Many of the cars you will encounter on the islands will be driven by tourists who are often too busy looking at the scenery or checking a map to pay attention to their surroundings. Wear your bright colors. In the morning and evening, light yourself up. • Take it easy. There is little reason to race around the islands. Take your time, pull off the road, and give space to vehicles. • Ride in small groups. Groups of two or three are perfect for exploring. Ride single file and don’t take up too much of the road. • Watch for wildlife. Deer are all over the islands, and they seem to like to play chicken with cyclists. Hitting a deer at full speed will seriously ruin your day. • Watch for hikers and runners. On dirt roads and trails you are almost always sharing space with pedestrians. Pass carefully and pay attention when you are coming around corners on those narrow trails. Stay in control on your descents.

The deadline for ad submission is the 5th of each month for the NEXT month’s issue. In the above example, the January issue would have come out on January 1st. You cannot retroactively place an ad in a magazine that has already been printed.

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

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

Thank you for reading! For more information, please contact the Advertising Coordinator at
