Old Fishing Boats

In a parade off to the Center for Wooden Boats 2-13-14, for an exhibit called “Highliners: Boats of the Century”.  The boats are from the Fishing Vessel Owners Association.

The representative boats from the fleet such as the f/v Seymore, f/v Vansee, f/v Kristiana, f/v Polaris and others will be at the Wharf in Lake Union Park for the opening of the exhibit February 15th, 2014… then some will head for Alaska to work.

Polaris, is a halibut and black cod ship. The St John II was built in 1942 and spent most of its time with the Olsen Reis family fishing in the Gulf of Alaska and the Bering Sea.

Anacortes to Seattle… highlights…

Sunday we spent a nice leisurely day driving a Nordic 34 Tug to the Seattle boats afloat Show on Lake Union… It was nice until we had to spend 3 hours trying to get through the locks.  Lots of people were trying to get back in on a Sunny, Warm, Sunday afternoon.

Seattle Yacht Club Opening Day 2013

Photos from Seattle’s Opening Day of Boating Season, May 4, 2013

Unlike a lot of areas where nothing can happen until after the spring thaw, boating is a year ‘round activity on Puget Sound. That’s super, but when the season never really closes it can be hard to find an excuse to celebrate the annual opening. Never at a loss of imagination when it comes to planning a party, Seattle area boaters have designated the first Saturday in May as the annual “Opening Day” for boating season.

The date coincides with the historic opening of the Seattle Yacht Club clubhouse on Portage Bay, many years ago. The SYC clubhouse is now on the National Registry of Historic Buildings, and Seattle Yacht Club takes a lead role in designing and organizing annual activities. Other yacht clubs from the area, (notably Queen City and Tyee) participate in hosting visiting boaters and staging celebratory events.

Opening Day activities on the water include the Windermere Cup Regatta, followed by the Opening Day Parade of official and decorated boats.
