Concorde 41 Seward to Bainbridge

Bonanza at Bishop Bay Hot Springs

Brought this beautiful 2010 Concorde 41 named Bonanza from Seward, AK to Bainbridge, WA.

400 miles across the golf of Alaska and then 1085 miles through SE Alaska, and Canadian territories.

It took 12 days to complete the journey and my coast explorer installation was a key part of determining the logistics of negotiating big tides and currents.  Boat was very comfortable with its big cummins, northern lights generator, and hydronic heating system.

Valiant 40 from PDX to La Conner

Valiant 40 in La Conner

Brought this classic up the coast from Portland, OR to La Conner, WA.

We had many challenges including engine cooling, oil consumption, charging, bar crossings, and battery management.

We got to do a little sailing in some breeze and the boat handling great.  What a pleasure.

Towing a C&C 30 RCYC to Big Oak Marina

avon towing a C&C 30

Used my avon to tow this C&C 30 from Rose City Yacht Club to Big Oak marina in the Multnomah Channel.

It was tricky getting the boat our of RCYC with the current flowing so hard but taking it slow and use the rudder of the sailboat helped accomplish the goal.

We made good time and got the boat safely to its destination.

Norseman 447 San Diego to Port Angeles

1984 Norseman 447

Helped bring this beautiful Bob Perry designed norseman 447 from San Diego to Port Angeles.  Owner joined us in this quick 9 day trip up the coast. 

We where able to sail a little bit, but weather was pretty calm most of the way.  We must have saw over 100 whales as we made our way up the cost.
