A great day boating!

This is the view of the Port of Ilwaco from our slip:

The Columbia River Bar ( aka Graveyard of the Pacific) was busy today. This is about the smoothest we've ever seen it. We once came across here with 13-15 ft swells.

In that second picture you have a fair amount of steam in the exhaust. Out of curiosity, is your boat raw water cooled?

Yes, it is. The exhaust is also above the water line. Why do you ask?

Just checking. That amount of steam might be something to keep an eye on. Sometimes it indicates some water is ingesting at the manifolds / riser and coming out as steam.

It stands out in that picture. What boat / motors do you guys have?

It's a 1968 Trojan with twin Chrysler 383s. Rod totally rebuilt them 4 years ago. It's just something this boat does. We love her, even her quirks. But boy, does she handle nice now that the steering is fixed!

I even got up enough nerve to go up on the fly bridge. My first time ever. I'm afraid of heights, so this was a big deal for me. I was okay as long as I didn't look down on the port side and see how close I was to the edge and how high I was.
