    Great job on the flyer.
    The cruise liner QE2 moves only six inches for each gallon of diesel fuel that it burns.

      Nice flyer! Wife and I are looking at this. A question or two since we're newbie's. We'd be towing our boat a 171 runabout up there. IF we use the off site launch, will there be a guest slip available where we could tie up during the day?
      Next question - any plans to explore the area in our boats during the day on Saturday or even Sunday? Trying to figure out if its worth hauling my boat up there from Portland...
      Thanks!

        Two thoughts - arrange for a slip and you won't have to bother with launching and retrieving over the weekend. Most of the action takes place on the barge and you will won't want to miss it.
        Cap Sante is on Fidalgo Island, one of the San Juan's and part of the most spectacular boating country in the world. You may want to tack on a day at either end to do some exploring. Buy or download some charts, Google Anacortes, San Juan Islands, etc. to find some spots and then ask the assembled GP crew for ideas on where to go and what to see. Quite a change from the Columbia and Willamette and you have to watch the weather, but you should definitely bring your boat.

          Slips for the weekend are reserved by Mr. Smee and we have plenty for everyone. If you plan on being there before or after the event then you would need to make separate arrangements. The key is getting people to register and commit to going early on so plans can be made.

          I would like to get a group of people together to take the boats out for a cruise. It's always fun getting good photos and videos of the boats in action. A few of us head out multiple times during the day to set and collect crabs and gear. Often times people tag along on other people's boats during this.

            Nova, that's a great idea and don't think we've ever done that before. Maybe something you could arrange, we could all take our boats out and maybe have a group photo or ??? Would be nice to have a different photo for our publication notifications. If Socal is there, he can photo from a dingy??

              I agree with Nova and Carl, I think that would be an excellent idea, and possibly a great photo for the magazines.

                would be fun to run around the island, through deception and up the channel

                  Anybody have a drone with a camera? That would be super cool.

                    We will have to come up with a plan and route for this and make it fit into the schedule. I'm pretty unfamiliar with the area so maybe some of the locals can guide us around.

                        Im not sure Id want to follow you, you would probably take me through canoe pass on a busy day just to see me put the 28 on the rocks! I like the idea and think D pass is a great area to go. Nice photo area too.

                            Would be a very nice cruise, seeing the pass from the water and looking up at the bridge is a picture you won't soon forget too. Knowing the tides is a serious requirement though. When you see the currents at anything but slack it will raise the "pucker factor" by a factor of 10 easily. Been though 3 times (At slack water too) and I never get tired of seeing it.

                              Love running under the bridge when the tide is running strong!
