Montgomery #375 Sweet Pea is FOR SALE

With a very heavy heart Momma Kitty and I need to sell our much loved Sweet Pea as we’ve decided we like living on the water and though an extremely capable boat Sweet Pea isn’t appropriate for living aboard through the Pacific Northwest late-fall, winter and early spring.  She is appropriate for daysailing, long weekends and extended … More Montgomery #375 Sweet Pea is FOR SALE

The current wins

I’m going back into South Puget Sound so once again I’ll transit Tacoma Narrows.  This means an early wake-up to ride the tide south. Up at 3:45am … Momma Kitty doesn’t even move out from the covers.   I make a cup of coffee and eat a breakfast of breakfast bars while boiling water to put … More The current wins

Going from Eagle Island to Jarrell Cove is mostly … More Jarrell Cove
