It was great to meet you as well. Looking at your boat made me wish my kids were 18, out of the house, so I could go buy the Maxum 26 footer. As long as I have kids, I need water sports.

We were headed to dinner when we met you last night. The Everett Marina shopping center was PACKED. Athony's Homeport had no availability until 9pm were told so we ended up at Athonys Wood Fire grill which was just as good. I was also shocked with how crowded everything was for a March weekend.

We headed out to sea this morning at 6:00am, with a bazillion other boats down to possession bar. There's just nothing else like it when you're doing 30kts across glass. No wind, slack high tide, it's better than a lake. But for whatever reason, we didn't catch anything. I still have not figured out this Blackmouth fishing. We were trolling 50 yards behind another fishing boat, in a 20 minute period he pulled in 3 fish (all undersized) and we didn't get a single bite. Obviously I had not the right dept, not the right lure, or I just don't know what I'm doing.

I'm really hoping my Garmin 440s shows up in the next week or two to help me see my downrigger ball depth and maybe get a bit better at fishing the right depth. Right now I'm just guessing based on my depth sounder which is not always accurate anyway.

I spent 8 years 2 months and 19 days in the US Navy. I've been through their Nuclear Power program, spent a year on the USS Tinosa, SSN 606 (594 class), decommissioned her, and then spent 6 years on the USS Georiga, SSBN 729 (726 class). I was a mechanic, but ended up doing mostly QAI work (keep water out of the people tank we used to say). So I've spent a lot of time at sea, in deep water. Though this is the first boat I've owned. Now I work on computer networks for a living.

We'll meet up again. We were pressed for time as well yesterday as we were on our way to dinner. Salmon season is still going on, next is shrimp, then crab and more salmon. I'm contemplating buying a season pass to Everett boat launch. Right now I'm also scoping out the people season. How crowded things get, when are the best times to use the ramp, when are they the busiest, when will you find yourself without any guest moorage, etc...

I really like Everett's boat launch and marina. Plus they're close to the fish and close to the San Juan's.
