I think a rig-and-sail day is coming in July. I suggest posting a message to the Northwest Potters group on Yahoo to find out!

Hi Diane, and welcome. There are two books I routinely use and like: A Cruising Guide to Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands: Olympia to Port Angeles [Spiral-bound] and Gunkholing in South Puget Sound: A Comprehensive Cruising Guide from Kingston-Edmonds South to Olympia [Paperback]. Both are available through Amazon. The South Puget Sound book probably won't be very helpful if you'll be up around Whidbey. You can email me directly at tom [at] tomsalzer [dot] net.

I've updated my call sign to a "7-land" call. Amateur radio call signs are numbered, and the numbers used to reflect where you live. That changed some years ago. My prior call was W3ROK, a "3-land" call which is on the eastern coast of the United States. As I became more involved in long-distance radio, I learned my number was important to many of the people I was talking with. When I upgraded to Amateur Extra, I also upgraded my call sign to a 7-land call. Now I am N7ROK :)

I can no longer suggest a fan-forced electric heater. This past winter, the one I was using melted the 120-volt male plug and the extension cord's female plug receptacle. I found it during a weekly check on the boat, and the problem could easily have turned into a boat fire. So: no more heaters of that sort in the boat!

I don\'t know what \"good\" means to you. For rock-solid templates, try JoomlaShack. I\'ve also used RocketTheme and JoomlaJunkie. All of these vendors provide quality products, in my experience.

Since my boat is trailerable, I usually launch from Bellingham and thus avoid the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Tides and shoals are still concerns, as is commercial traffic in Rosario Strait.
