Hi everyone, My son is 23 Years old. He has just finished his Day Skippers ticket. He is looking for an opportunity to crew in order to build sea miles to progress to his next ticket. Inbox me or better still mail me on cycletronc1 at hotmail dot com if you have a berth available. Many thanks Shaun

Hello, all. My wife and I own a Hunter 38, currently moored at DeLin Docks in Foss Waterway in Tacoma. Last summer was our first summer cruising in the Puget Sound. We are planning to cruise in the future north into Canada. I am interested in the what the typical sailing vessel our size uses for anchor and ground tackle. What do most people carry in terms of anchor weight, length of chain and length of nylon. Any advice would be very welcome!

Hello everyone. I am new to the group as you can see but excited to join in. I have been vacationing and sailing around the San Juan and Gulf Islands since I was a little boy. Now I am dreaming of expanding my area experience with a sail up the Inland Passage to Juneau. I am hoping that I can use you all to help get me started headed in the right direction. I am curious to learn from those that have sailed up there if they think I can do the trip in a chartered boat out of Anacourtes. (I have chartered boats there for the past 15 years each summer) These boats are never "genuine blue water boats" as you know. I have access to a Dawson 26 which is a stong boat but is maybe too small for my group. What do you think are the possibilites. Question 2, what are the best tools you all would recommend for planning a trip? Thank you before hand for you help and understanding for a "green, bluewater sailer".

Well it looks like we have our travel dates pretty much set. July 3, 2010 is departure day. Return is July 18th, give or take a couple of days. Now the Itinerary is written in jell-o and looks like this: July 3- Olympia to Boston Harbor, watch fireworks. July 4- Boston Harbor to Gig Harbor or Tacoma or Quartermaster Harbor July 5-Bell Harbor or some place in Seattle to pick up my daughter Katie July 6- Port Hudson/Port Townsend July 7-Friday Harbor, San Juan Island, find out where Andiamo is and meet up July 8 - July 15th Island hopping San Juan and Gulf Islands with friends July 15- July 18 Homeward bound I'll fill in the banks as we travel. Most of our trips go something like this. We plan the major stops for fuel and provisions and the rest we'll tell you about it as it happens or when we get back.

We plan to spend the rest of the summer north of where the boat is now- Sidney, and head back when it gets cold. Any off the book great places to anchor you'd like to share.
