Boat is in for service
« on: November 16, 2017, 05:02:19 PM »
I just realized how much I miss and love my boat when it has been in for service the past week. Not that I would have gone out this last week in bad weather but I go down everyday and sit on it and mess around. I have gone down twice and stared at an empty slip....

I hear you! I had a slip all last summer and never realised how enjoyable it was to just hang out at the marina. Some times I would clean the boat, tie up gear, drink a beer or meet and talk with other boat guys. Every one was in a good mood and having fun, even guys that where having no fish days. My boat may be in the water next year a few extra months.

You must have been having some fun putting some hours on the boat :fishing: Seems like you just got it a month or so ago.

The sickness is really starting to take hold. Best thing to do is run hull through salt water. It may be too late for you.  :nono:

On C dock I was amazed at how strongly the wind blew through the marina! 
If you're really lonely you could go down there and sit on someone else's boat.  Not many folks there in this weather.    :jester:

Too late Diabalo. The sickness has set it. Our boat will be in the water all year and go out weather permitting

Mark where were you? I'm in D26, southern exposure. Have a friend on about C 30, southerly exposure also and Brian is in close to shore uncovered

I was in C25 for 5 or so years.  Lived in Shoreline near Richmond Beach and could make it to the boat in 12 minutes! I would be online and check the fishing reports and tides and run down to the water for the bite!
It is really cool that as a tenant you get a wireless code.  We also used to BBQ on the Magma grill and once in a while sleep in the cuddy.  The marina has a certain number of slots for liveaboards and I was offered one but declined- we only slept there a few times and didn't have to pay the $80 additional charge per month.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I love it. Sounds like where we are was right across from your old slip. Dont tell anyone but we may sleep onboard a time or two.

I've timed it. If ferry traffic or a train doesnt get in the way, I'm 7 minutes to the marina. Just up above westgate, about a mile southtwest of the hospital and high school, if you know where that is. Sounds like we were close.

20 hour initial service on both the main and kicker, and also adding a stainless steel ball valve on the raw water wash down

That's a great arrangement, I know you'll enjoy it as much as I have!  I met some folks from Bellevue who moored there but only saw them once in a blue moon and that was when traffic wasn't so bad...

"Jealous" 45 min at 4am from the house when heading out fishing. 20 min from work. I guess I could beat the 7 min if I moored local in Cowichan Bay where I live but the fishing is not as good as the south western end of the Island.

Bah!!!  Humbug!!!     :berry:   Nearest Salt is 2.5 hours + Launch time, away... :nono:    20 minutes to the river though..  Unfortunately, now the sealions have taken over that area to the point that when you catch, you are merely making it easier for the 'lions to get their meal...

Takes about an hour to get on the Columbia, when there are fish there...

I have a little over 2 hour commute for my fishing, the boat is stored at Lawson's on the trailer. Still has a great community feel with all the other boaters that store their boats there for the fishing season.
I can see how mooring a boat in a marina would be a real convenience, I could easily see how one could go to the marina and hang out :beerchug:

And the Edmonds marina provides an electrical connection for battery charging and running a dehumidifier, plus running water at each slip.

Went down to the boat today, what fun! going back down tomorrow and getting the boat set up and ready for some crabbing next week and also trying for the elusive winter chinook. Don't care if I catch anything. Just love being out.

Mark is talking about the coast. Crabbing is open in Puget Sound in the areas we go. Thanks

Like Tom Mac I am 45 minutes from Pedder to Sooke and so far have been OK with hearing about the great fishing there and fishing and not catching in Oak Bay. I am looking forward to getting home from vacation to fish "the flats" for feeder springs 10 minutes from home. TomMac is there any winter fishery near the Saanich inlet I could fish while soaking prawn traps?

I have heard nothing yet on salmon, I do know the crabbing is all ways good in Cowichan Bay in my top secret classified spot! I have not been out for prawns yet.

A very long time ago when crab was cheap my secret spot was the fish store in Cow bay they would even clean them if you talked nice. I had a cabin at Shawinigan and had to stop feeding crab to the guests as they kept dropping in.

I dont have a secret spot for crab yet. I have heard of a few places to try. I do have a favorite spot for salmon. Costco.  :fishing:
