Lovely video of one of my favorite places in the world… Read the full post on Navagear.
Get ready for another set of regulations that will impact boating. That’s because the Department of Natural Resources looks to be moving towards an Aquatic Lands Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) that will affect all boaters, boatyards and marinas who have Aquatic Lands leases with the ...
At an average of 6.38 knots, we moved to say the least yesterday and last night. Nonetheless, life is still very enjoyable onboard Letitgo and truly the catamarans are made for downwind. The stable platform makes it truly livable, cooking, showering or just going to the washroom is not an ordeal, just business as usual. […]
Big boat projects can be tricky to complete. You have to be committed to getting the job done, but not at the expense of family and time on the water. Winter is a great time to get things done up here in the Pacific Northwest. I learned from past failures… Read the full post on […]
Ponnusamy, or Sam as we call him, prepared chicken curry at his home in Penang, Malaysia for us to share on Totem recently. He called it “a simple curry” although was anything but simple, with so many different spices that even chili-fueled fire didn’t overwhelm the complex flavors. Other than love of good chicken vindaloo […]
By the time the forecast windstorm arrived, its strength had been downgraded a tiny bit. But it was still very strong when it arrived Thursday night (aside: why do these things always happen at night?). For an assortment of reasons too complicated to detail here, we spent the night at our cabin on Camano Island. […]

A Coast Guard helicopter found the man in the water at about 11:15 p.m. Sunday, his kayak nearby. He had been reported overdue on Sunday evening by his […]
In all honesty, we should’ve purchased a liferaft earlier. We were less compelled as our past travels kept us always within a day sail of land, in areas well-populated with other boaters. Admittedly our delay was also due in part because for us it’s far less painful to pay “boat bucks” (measured in increments of $1,000 […]
I’ve experienced it many times before and chances are you will too, that sinking feeling as your keel strikes bottom. You’ve run your beloved boat aground. So now what? Contrary to how you may be feeling, your boating day is not at all over. It is just getting started.
I’ve never once wished for a larger boat while out sailing and voyaging but living aboard at the dock in winter is an entirely different thing. I should be writing, or working on the boat or… but I’m not, I’m surfing the web for my dream 50’er. The Crealock 31 is the largest boat in […]
After the highway, we are now on the German Autobahn. The trade winds are blowing 13-15 knots from the SE pushing us nicely. The night was rather rough, we had 30 minutes while under clouds of 7 knots but the sea didn’t stop, making Letitgo roll and uncomfortable for a little while. This interrupting everybody […]
