Arima Life / Re: Stabicraft
« Last post by Tunacious on Today at 10:34:54 PM »
I spent the day at a boat show last winter.
I crawled through every boat.
The stabicraft was my favorite boat just because of how there built and designed.
Lots of little details that I liked.
I’ve never been on one in the water but have talked to some owners.
They loved them.
The best part is they give them away for almost free.  :stirthepot:

Arima Life / Learned a few things about currents today....
« Last post by B-TownRanger on Today at 10:31:56 PM »
Don't want to be TOO dramatic, but I scared myself pretty good today. I spent the weekend on Carr Inlet in the south sound. Trip in from Tacoma was easy. Brought the kids and had a great ride. Kids staying at Grandmas for a few days, so I brought the boat home myself today. In-laws house is on the water, so I've had an closeup view of the glassy water all weekend. I've been checking the marine forecast and the forecast winds as I always do. Jumped up on plane out of Lakebay and started to buzz around the south end of Fox Island. As soon as I got near the south tip of Fox Island, the water changed. The water was ANGRY. Different from the wind waves. From there to the other side of the narrows bridge, I was white knuckle the whole way. Then, the water was fine again.

In retrospect, I probably wasn't in any real danger, but I've never experienced current wave action like that before. In looking at the "Current forecast" (after the fact, as I had only been checking predicted wind, waves and tides), it looks like I just nailed the worst possible time to pass through the narrows with 6kt currents. Tides were extremely low this weekend (we found an octopus on the beach this morning!), so I would assume that was a contributor.

Boat was a total champ and nothing really happened other then a bumpy ride. I'm trying to get a feel for which conditions should be avoided vs conditions that are just a part boating on Puget Sound. I'll add a check of the currents when I go out and refine my timing. Would other Arima owners avoid those conditions? Anything I should study up on for a trip to Port Angeles/Squim next weekend (weather dependent)?

Thanks mooch, that looks like a good source. I had looked at their site but couldn't find those. Appreciate the help.

Maybe check here to identify correct or similar model.  It's a simple and common design.

https://www.springfieldgrp.com/products/boat-accessories/handle-assemblies

With right model number you should be able to find item easily online.  Think I found some for my bass boat on eBay. 

Good luck.
