We are getting more set in our current spot on Virginia Point by Poulsbo with the commute to Seattle. We have been kicking around the idea of a commuter boat, because well why not own two boats. We have a option on a liveaboard slip in lake WA that is a great location but it's really nice where we are and would like to make work. If I was in Maine this would be easy and probably done in about a month of looking. So far it has been a bit of a struggle to find the right fit in the PNW. It's about 16 miles dock to dock for work through Agate. Don't want to build something yet. Our landlord is a great designer and has plans a plenty for that. Any ideas for a 3/4 year downeast ish commuter in the PNW? I have plenty of brightwork already so simple and utilitarian are fine, but it still has to look proper. Would like to keep it at a hr or less for passage, be able to do most of the year. More than likely one or both trips will be in the dark 50% of the time. Cutty cabin to crash in of wx goes to shit a plus. Budget is in the newish car-small truck range as that is what it will be subbing for.
