  1. 2airishuman I have to agree with Kent Island Sailor a quick google of Alabama Boating found this Boating Education and Operator Certification/License | Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (alea.gov) It also appears that there are approved course that you can take and you will not have to take the test in the office. Most of the state rules I have looked at give you XX number of days in the state before you need to obtain that states certificate/license just like an auto license.
  2. Hawaii requires an certificate, I have not seen or heard of any enforcement. Washing State requires a boaters card that you have to pay $10 for after completing a course and passing a test you can challenge the course also. If you are an out of state boater and in Washington for 45 days you must get one, it did not say if this was consecutive or total. For those in along the border Canada requires a certificate but will accept your most US states certificate.. The BoatUS.org courses (free) suffices for most states you still have to take and pass the test. I am planning a tri
  3. Jud-SV Sputnik and Wagsea6b Thanks what you provided is exactly what I am looking for, we like to meet the locals. We did a small boat (82 pax) cruise in Alaska many years ago and want to do on our boat on our schedule. I have just order Exploring SE Alaska from Waggoners web site. We will not be going up the inside passage we will be starting from Sitka after a pacific crossing from Hi. Don't want a schedule but do want to know distances and what is available at various locations plan on being self sufficient as much as possible. Trying to figure out where to leave boat for the wint
  4. I have a 3 year old Waggoners that doesn't cover Se AK. This will be our first time cruising in SE Ak. I am looking for any tips and fun things to see and do. Where to get fuel and provisions. Trying to find some blogs from people who have done it.
  5. Can anyone recommend a good cruising guide for SE Alaska, also any other books to read for info to plan a few months in the area I have the Waggoners guide on order. Trying to find some sailing blogs from boats currently cruising SE Alaska. I have found losts on the inside passage canada and Puget sound.

  7. Thanks for the suggestions not sure that I will have time to hang out at any sailing events.
  8. Ishmael Thanks going to try to get to one of them this fall. I can live with it going to the tank for now.
  9. Going to be in the Cleveland area at the beginning of August and looking for things to do, which Yacht clubs are good to visit? What days are the "beer can" races and where? Any good used boat parts stores? Please name some good restaurants in the area. Going to be staying near the Cleveland clinic. Will have a car so can travel a short distance. Is the Rock and Roll hall of fame worth a visit? Not sure how much time I will have to play.
  10. Not sure what brand. Thinking it might be Forespar. Can get to the valve body easily. Here is a picture of the front of the valve mounted.
  11. Have a Y valve that is getting difficult to operate. It is 15 years old and I try to cycle every three months. Is there any way to lubricate these valves? Don't really want to remove hose from it at this point.
  12. I used to say go for Craftsman because of the guarantee but it is getting harder to get them replaced. If I was starting over now I would look at SnapOn.
  13. Might be in the area the end of June need some parts for the genset and water maker figure I can pick them up while I am there to save shipping costs. Is there an Horizon Reverse Osmosis (HRO) dealer in the Seattle/Anacortes area who stock parts? Also looking for a Mastervolt dealer.
  14. Rio 100 is no longer on the entry list. Who else will withdraw in the next few days?
  15. Today is the the standard Entry fee deadline. Do we see many boats drop off the entry list. End of may is dead line for late entry.
