For fun, post pics of your local boat ramp, and where it is located.

Mine is at Branched Oak Lake, outside Lincoln Nebraska.

We don't have a launch yet here at our boat yard but one is to be built this year.

Here is the "dingy dock" though. Our small dingy is in the background. The wooden boat is an actual Cuban vessel that showed up one day. It was here for a couple of months but disappeared w/in the last week. Don't know where it went but I'm positive it didn't go back to Cuba!! Laughing

Yep, neighbors friends were there when they landed just south of here. Traded them their hats and shirts for the boat. They hid it in the mangroves as the authorities showed up, then paddled it here.



Bottom right side you can see one of the paddles. They were tree limbs w/ home made plastic paddles cut out and notched into one end. All the structural wood was rough sawn and hand hewn. There was a hole in the bow that may have been a socket for a mast. Burn marks on the stern indicate cooking maybe?

Olympia looks like a beautiful area to sail in.

Judging by the pilings there is a decent tide shift?

The Puget Sound is a beautiful place. Tides can run from -4 to +13 when everything aligns. We usually have -3 to +12 tides around the 4th of July. This also makes for some impressive currents. A couple of places have narrow connections to the sound with large bodies of water behind them. A 7 knot current is not uncommon in these areas. Great if it is going the way you want to go! Not so good if you are trying to go against it.

Heading North are the San Juan Islands, another delightful place to be in a boat. Some day, I'd like to continue on up the inside passage to the north of Vancouver Island. I think I have to develop a good accent before I do that eh?

Sounds like timing is everything! Shocked


I have read a bit about the San Juans and would love to travel through that area as well. Eventually up to Alaska.

There was a rumor of a CM30 making that trip but I never found any trip reports. If you go, please take some pics and write a little about it.

Someone on the other board went from Seattle to Alaska and back in his 26. Don't remember the name but it was the guy who fixed his pop top up and made a permanent hard top for it.

Less than three hours by freeway is a nice ramp. It is probably less than an hours cruise from the ramp to the southern end of the San Juan islands. This is on my schedule for this coming summer. Very Happy

I did some work on the ship over the weekend. it is really easy to get the last bits of water out of the bottom of the hull when it is in a solid state. Used a screwdriver to pry it up and threw it overboard.

Luhr Beach is on the west side of the Nisqually delta. Tends to be shallow. I'd aim for a mid or higher tide. Requires a WA state Discover pass. Limited parking but on street parking extends a long ways up the hill.

Solo Point has a boat ramp but is military property (part of Ft Lewis) and use is controlled by the base. Not a good place to leave a trailer overnight... Steilacoom has a ramp for the brave!

Day Island has a modest launch. It looks pretty good but is $12 bucks to launch. Parking is limited. This is on the side of Tacoma so will get heavy usage.

Ruston is north of Tacoma on Pt Defiance. Pretty easy access and designed to handle boat traffic from Tacoma! $11 for launching. Limited parking at water level, limited parking a short walk up the hill. Massive parking a longer walk up the hill! This area borders on the Pt Defiance Zoo, Aquarium and park.
